Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton cuddled up together on Halloween: rebound?


Gwen Stefani has been single now for a few months, and for at least a month, the tabloids have been trying to set her up with another Summer of Splits dude, Blake Shelton. It doesn’t come out of left field – they are both on this season of The Voice and they do seem to enjoy each other and like each other a great deal. But up until now, the rumors of a rebound romance have sort of fallen flat, and both Blake and Gwen have laughed off the reports. But over Halloween weekend, they were seen/photographed spending a lot of time together, looking flirty and touchy – go here to see some blurry photos.

As romance rumors continue to circulate around them, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton remain adamant about the fact that they’re just friends. However, E! News has obtained exclusive photos of the duo hanging out at Adam Levine and Maroon 5’s Halloween party in Studio City, Calif., over the weekend that seem to show otherwise. In the photos we see Shelton—wearing a rocker wig and headband—holding Stefani close with his hands on her shoulders, eventually moving them down to her waist. At one point he evens ends up with one hand on her backside! In another photo, Stefani—wearing her hair in a bun on the top of her head—is spotted looking up adoringly at Shelton as they chat at the spooky shindig.

Sources confirm to E! News that The Voice coaches spent a majority of the holiday weekend together. First, they were spotted at George Clooney’s Casamigos party on Friday night.

“Blake showed up at the Casamigos party right around the same time as Gwen. It was definitely strange for him to be there because he hadn’t been in years past,” our insider reveals. “They left right around the same time too. Although they were in separate cars when they left, they met up at the next party.”

Though a second source tells us there was no PDA at Clooney’s party, things changed as the night went on. After leaving Clooney’s bash separately, they reunited at Jared Leto’s party later in the evening. Our insider says they were holding hands and eventually ended up leaving his party late in the night together. However, according to another source who works with them on The Voice, this isn’t too far off for the duo, who have been spending more time together as of late.

“They are definitely flirty on the set and you can see they have fun together,” the source explains. “There is something going on between them and they have spent time together off set. They don’t want to label anything or define it, they just really like each other and happen to be going through similar things in their lives. Gwen has spent time at Blake’s house in the Hollywood Hills recently. They want it to stay under the radar and not make it a big public thing because who knows what will happen.”

Yes, of course they don’t want to “make it a big public thing,” that’s why they were cuddling in full view of random people and photographers. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate this. It sounds like a fun rebound fling and as long as no one develops feelings, I don’t see why they shouldn’t have some fun. Gwen will not alienate Blake’s fanbase and he won’t really alienate her fanbase. She’s a little bit older and now a single mom. He’s a charming drunk who got seriously burned in his last marriage. This better be a fling and not something more serious.

Speaking of serious feelings, Gwen gave an interview to Carson Daly on 97.1 AMP Radio yesterday and she ended up discussing Gavin Rossdale a bit. She repeatedly said that Daly’s personal questions made her feel like throwing up, but at one point she said: “My life is so extreme right now. My life basically blew up in my face. And now I’m in this new life, and it’s pretty awesome I have to say — I’m so inspired and being back on the show, and just being in a new place. Everything just feels new. I just feel inspired. I don’t know how else to describe it.” When asked specifically about spending more time with Blake, she said: “I was literally that party girl that you hear about when their life blows up, and you’re like, ‘Yeah! I’m going out! Like, watch me!’ We’re just trying to have fun. You know?” Yeah, I get it.

    Maybe pranking the gossips?

    No – ratings.

  3. Sara says:

    This is why being famous can be irksome. After a breakup loads of people want nothing more than to smash themselves, sleep with their friends, regret it, post ambiguous zen koans on social media and eventually complain no one is looking for serious dating on Tinder.

    I would hate to rebound in public.

    • Lara K says:


      I totally buy that they are having some naked fun together. It’s what you do when your life comes crashing down around you.

      But it will likely blow over they will move on once the initial hurt has been banged away. I think they both got cheated on, so I’m sure it’s comforting to be with someone who is going through the exact same thing.

  4. Esmom says:

    I don’t know what her costume is but she looks really cute. And while I’m not really a Gavin fan I see Blake as a definite downgrade. Yuck. Hopefully she’ll get him out of her system soon.

    • whatever says:

      Totally disagree. Blake is such a HUGE upgrade in my eyes. Gavin, with his slicked back hair and seemingly indifferent attitude towards his wife. Also, career-wise, a total has been for about twenty years. Sweet attention from Blake and a lot of laughs must be just what the doctor ordered at this point. Also: cute.

      • Kitten says:

        The guy who gets off on running over animals? Ugh. Nope. Definite downgrade.

      • Tammy says:

        While tasteless, I think that was a joke Kitten. A lot of what he writes on Twitter is nonsense and I get the impression he is trying to get laughs and falls short. Again it was tasteless.

        I don’t know. Gavin Rossdale seems to be like the biggest sleaze… at least that is the vibe I get.

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      You also have to consider the “drunk cowboy, I dont give two craps about nuthin and no one” thing is his brand. It’s not who he is as a person. Once you take both of their PR images off behind closed doors, maybe they are great together. Who knows? But I wouldn’t be so quick to judge him as being a gross redneck. That’s just what he needs to portray for his fan base.

      • Pinky says:

        If they are together, it makes me like him better. I’m. Okay with this. Actually, I want it to be true. Sparks on set and off!

    • Andrea says:

      I agree–Blake is a downgrade for me too. I always found Gavin hot though and Blake just looks like some bloated guy I’d find in anywhere America.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      I like her. I don’t know why. I’m not really a fan or anything, I just thought she seemed like a good mother. I’m not liking her with Blake and I hope this passes quickly. I understand she wants to blow off steam but I hope she doesn’t stick with him.

  5. jugstorecowboy says:

    I don’t believe this for a second. All PR.

  6. Catelina says:

    Cool. Let them have some rebound fun. I’m sure its nothing serious.

  7. Kip says:

    What the hell sort of costume is the person she’s hanging onto wearing? :\

  8. Saphana says:

    PR setup.

  9. Emmygrant says:

    Who is she supposed to be? Annie Oakley? Her costume looks like a hybrid of Dorothy, Pippi Longstocking, and Annie Oakley with zombie blood thrown in for good measure. That’s why I asked. 😉

  10. Tiffany says:

    Gwen has spoken to him…..riiiight.

  11. Jayna says:

    Blake has the most amazing eyes and hair and he is charming and funny. He would be a good rebound guy after being so hurt from you divorce, but not one to get serious with. Go have fun, Gwen, but don’t fall in love with him. He will break your heart.

  12. Colette says:

    November Sweeps

  13. It'sJustBlance says:

    I don’t mean for this to sound creepy, but I like these two together and one of the reasons why is you can bet they would be having ridiculously crazy sex and frankly, someone should be.

  14. schmoopy says:

    I’m starting to wonder if maybe… they have been having an affair for awhile now and actually ended their marriages to be together.

    • InvaderTak says:

      Eh why not? That’s just as good gossip wise as anything.

    • Ash says:

      Me too. I don’t think he’s the one that got burned in he and Miranda’s marriage. The mudslinging from his camp was too serious to seem like anything but deflection.

  15. WinnieCoopersMom says:

    They are each so different from their respective spouses, it’s probably exciting. I mean isn’t Gwen like the anti-Miranda? They are most likely intrigued and it’s the first time either of them has been free from the constraints of marriage in decades. I’m sure it’s some fun but I don’t see them making a real go of it. If they tried, that just would not work. Though it would be fun to watch them do some date-friendly pap walks, if for nothing else than just gossip and to get their cheating exes all fired up lol

  16. lile says:

    I LOVED Blake and Miranda together. I adore Miranda. I love Gwen too, but I have to say, I can’t watch the Voice anymore. It could be them pranking, but most likely they have just decided to have some “no strings attached” fun together. They probably figure “why not” when they are both suddenly single, they have fun together, they are attracted to one another, they might think it will boost rating for the show, and “Why not??” I just really wish he and Miranda could have worked it out.

  17. Dee Kay says:

    I have to say, the rumors started even before this season of The Voice started airing, that Gwen and Blake might sort of fake romantic chemistry in order to boost the ratings and amp up interest in the show. BUT so far — on the episodes that have aired anyway — I see zero flirting or banter between them. If anything, I think it was surprising how many artists got chair turns from both Gwen and Blake, and Blake seemed to win like 95% of them, which then seemed to pi** Gwen off. And in the Battle Rounds, Gwen and Blake went up against one another to steal one of the artists, and Blake won again (and I thought was extra trash-talky and competitive about it) and Gwen was again pi**ed. I’m not saying they’re not casually banging, but they’re definitely not playing up hot flirty romantic/sexual chemistry on the show, as some predicted they would.

    …she seems to be wearing less makeup for her Halloween getup than she usually does day to you can see the texture of her skin…strange…

  19. Kelly says:

    Would love them as a couple, hope it is true!!

    so this blog doesn’t seem to think that gwen and blake broke up their marriages for each other?
