Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani appeared together for their first interview as a couple with Access Hollywood to discuss about the “No Doubt” singer’s return to “The Voice” for Season 10. The interview also comes amid rumors that Shelton’s ex-wife Miranda Lambert wants to confront Stefani about her relationship with the “Sangria” singer.
During the interview with Access Hollywood, the couple spoke about their new collaboration while Shelton gushed over his girlfriend, praising her. Shelton also said that it was he who asked Stefani to return to “The Voice” as a mentor.
“It was me. You think who are the ultimate artists you can get to mentor your team and I thought wait a minute, this is perfect and I actually know her! It worked out!” Shelton said, while Stefani smiled and blushed next to him.
“We know we collaborate well as coaches,” Blake explained, while Stefani said: “It was really fun to be in there and learn a bit from him” when it comes to the new role of helping make sure Shelton’s contestants continue their winning ways on the show.
The names of other advisors for the next season are yet to be revealed, but so far it’s been revealed that Miley Cyrus will serve as key advisor in “The Voice” Season 10.
Christina Aguilera will be back as coach for the next season, alongside fellow coaches Shelton, Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams.
Stefani and Shelton publicly addressed their dating in November last year, but rumors about their romance had made the rounds as the two got close to each other during “The Voice” Season 9. Since their relationship was confirmed, “The Voice” coaches have been surrounded with several engagement and marriage rumors.
In a recent report by InTouch magazine, a source claimed that Shelton’s ex-wife, who has been silent over her ex-husband’s new romance, wants to meet Stefani.
“Miranda wants to confront Gwen over hurt feelings and unanswered questions,” the source told InTouch magazine, according to Gossip Cop. “Miranda will sit down with Gwen and just hash it out woman to woman. Just lay the cards down on the table. The showdown is going to be explosive.”
The source also reportedly said: “Now things are about to erupt between Blake’s current and former loves, and he’s caught in the middle.”
However, Gossip Cop reported that the report about a “face-to-face showdown” between Lambert and Stefani was false.
