I don’t have the rights to the pictures, but I’m sure you saw the photo of Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton holding hands on their way to a CMA after-party yesterday. That photo was taken at approximately 12:15 am; the couple touched down by private jet in LA at around 4 am PT.
All Gwen did was accompany Blake to Warner Bros’s after-party, but that was enough to make it clear: the two are now a couple. TMZ reported the new pair was received “with open arms by everyone.”
Am I the only one who’s noticed these two aren’t wasting time? A source claimed the two had been romantically involved for “just days.” Blake reportedly called ‘The Voice’ coach Christina Aguilera just last week and confessed he had a crush on Gwen. Christina reportedly told him, “Ha, good luck with that.”
However, sources close to Gwen say that Blake boosts her self-esteem after her unhappiness with Gavin Rossdale. Gwen reportedly told people that Gavin was a “control freak” who sought to stay dominant in the relationship by criticizing her parenting and for not being a supportive wife.
Blake’s kindness, in contrast, left Gwen “blown away.” A source said:
It made her feel good again.”
Blake was able to win her over just by being fun. Christina must be a bit surprised ;). It seems like they’re moving awfully fast, but they’re both old enough to know how to deal with relationships and the media scrutiny that comes along with them. We’ll see where this goes…
