Here’s something to mull over during your Wednesday lunch: The Voice judges Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton may or may not be dating.
Let’s back up a little bit. Blake and wife of four years Miranda Lambert announced their split in July. A few weeks later, Gwen filed for divorce from Gavin Rossdale, her husband of 13 years. People have been saying that Gwen and Blake are getting flirty on The Voice, and rumors of the two getting cozy, dating, etc. swirled after they were spotted out together this past Halloweekend. See below Twitter pic for definition of “getting cozy” / “maybe dating.”

Gwen, who is currently working on a new record, spoke out about these rumors yesterday during an interview with Ryan Seacrest. She talked to Ryan about her new song “Used To Love You,” as well as her divorce. Ryan eventually threw in a question about Blake, asking Gwen if she is indeed dating him.
“I think that NBC did that, right? Two divorced people at the same time,” Gwen said. She didn’t want to give a yes or no answer, but she did say this about Blake: “I think he’s hot, don’t you?”
Gwen, girl, I see you. I see Blake, too, and apparently, people see you both… together.
Unfortunately we can neither confirm nor deny the dating rumors, but hey, Gwen and Blake are both hot and newly single, so if they’re hooking up, good for them, right? On the other hand, they might just be getting closer because they’re experiencing similar things at the same time. Gwen actually admitted to Ryan that she thought it was kind of crazy that both she and Blake filed for divorce within weeks of each other. And as we all know, simply thinking someone is hot does not a full-blown romance make. I think Miguel is hot. Are we dating? (At least let me down easy.)
Still, Gwen and Blake are really cute when they sing together. Below article as proof.
Gwen also revealed to Ryan that her “life blew up” in her face the day after the 2015 Grammy Awards, when a “major event happened.” She’s hesitant to explain the event, but she says that there are clues in her new single “Used To Love You.” What happened the day after the Grammys sent Gwen into a creative bubble, and she wrote so much, she had enough songs for an album in eight weeks. The album was deemed “too personal” by her record label, and she continues to write.
