Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are currently one of music’s hottest couples. The two of them became legendary musicians in their respective genres many years ago, and today have proven themselves to be a powerful pair.
While Stefani and Shelton’s relationship is going strong, fans still remember when they were both dating and being married to other people. Stefani herself also once learned something creepy about an ex-girlfriend of Shelton.
Read on below to find out what this strange detail was that left Stefani shook.
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton started dating in 2015
Stefani and Shelton first met in 2014 when she joined The Voice as a coach. Shelton had already been a regular coach on the show before then.
The two singers quickly bonded, especially since they were both going through a difficult time. Stefani and Shelton were both married to other people, but their respective relationships were not going well. In fact, Shelton later shared that he and Stefani helped each other and even “saved each other’s lives.”
In 2015, both of them announced that they were divorcing their spouses. It didn’t take long before there were suddenly rumors that Stefani and Shelton had begun a relationship together. They confirmed this in late 2015.
In early 2016, the pair appeared on the red carpet together for the first time.
One of Blake Shelton’s exes was a huge Gwen Stefani fan
Shelton and Stefani’s relationship came as a bit of a surprise to fans because they both were active in different parts of the music industry. Shelton was a huge country star while Stefani mostly sang rock and ska music.
In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel in 2018, Stefani shared that they did have to spend some time teaching each other about their respective musical genres. However, Stefani revealed that Shelton was actually quite familiar with her work already because he once dated someone who was a huge fan of her.
“He did tell me that he dated a girl for like three months that had my face plastered all over her bedroom,” Stefani said. “Yeah, so that’s kind of weird, right?”
Does Gwen Stefani get along with Blake Shelton’s ex-wife Miranda Lambert?
While the identity of Shelton’s ex-girlfriend who was a huge Stefani fan is unknown, people often focus more on Shelton’s ex-wife: Miranda Lambert. Shelton and Lambert married in 2011 only to divorce in 2015, and there are reasons to believe that Lambert is not a fan of Stefani.
Although neither Lambert nor Stefani has publicly spoken about each other, Lambert has shown that she still has a lot of bad blood with Shelton. In December, she did not stand up during a standing ovation for Shelton at the Country Music Awards.
“Everyone stood up for Blake at the end of his performance except Miranda Lambert and her husband,” a witness told Us Weekly. “At the commercial break, they both left their seats.”
Lambert has also been known to change the lyrics in some of her songs to shade Shelton.
Will Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton get married soon?
It does not seem like Stefani and Shelton are too bothered by Lambert, however.
Stefani and Shelton recently decided buy a home together in Los Angeles. Shelton has actually been spending a lot of time with Stefani’s children as well and is becoming a big part of their lives.
As for when they could be getting married, it does not seem like Stefani and Shelton are in any hurry to tie the knot at the moment. Stefani still needs to get her previous annulled by the Catholic church, but either way, a source told Hollywood Life that they are “in no rush to get married.”
