TMZ is reporting that Gavin Rossdale is “suspicious” over estranged wife Gwen Stefani’s story that she and her fellow The Voice coach just recently became an item.
Sources close to Gavin tell us he smelled something was up between Gwen and Blake before their marriage blew up. We’re told he does not believe the timing of his divorce with Gwen and Blake’s divorce with Miranda Lambert is coincidental.
We’re told Gavin believes Gwen was painting him as a bad guy for cover … he thinks she was worried he’d take her to the cleaners if he found out she had already hooked up with Blake.
And our sources say Gavin’s gripes go beyond Blake. He can’t believe she’s calling him a control freak, because she demanded he NOT go on tour out of paranoia he’d cheat on her. He says she browbeat him into staying home, which greatly impeded his ability to make money. As one source said, “She just didn’t let him work.”
And finally, we’re told he’s indignant she recorded a “woe is me” song, “Used to Love You,” in which she cries, “Nobody taught you how to love.” We’re told Gavin’s scoffing at the lyrics, saying he was good enough for her for a long time.
The relationship blowing up coinciding with Gwen releasing new music, the CMAs and the start of The Voice live shows is what I find fishy. I’d call it a rebound with a side of promotional convenience. It’s got to be a little embarrassing for the exes. And Gwen’s oldest is 9 and can probably access the internet pretty easily, no?
Whether Gwen and Blake’s “relationship” actually began before they were married. Oh well. There have been plenty of cheating rumors to go around, regarding all involved parties.
Meanwhile, Gwen has “finally opened up” about her relationship to Blake.
“He’s a pretty rad guy, I have to say that,” Stefani tells #Uncorked hosts Leigh Ann and Courtney in an interview airing on Monday at 4 p.m. CT.
“There’s been loads of people that have helped me with this tragedy,” Stefani says of her divorce from Rossdale. “There’s definitely key people that have pointed me into the right direction. Blake really helped me. Not to change the subject, but it’s kinda on the same subject, Pharrell was literally like a guardian angel.”
When asked about going public with Blake, Gwen, “We didn’t! Like, somebody did. That’s what’s so crazy like, who announces that? Why would I do that?”
What? Didn’t her reps confirm the relationship the day of the CMAs? C’mon Gwen. Thou dost protest too much.
