Gwen Stefani's boyfriend, Blake Shelton, recently met up with her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, to discuss his ongoing involvement in their kids' lives.
According to a new report, Shelton wanted to meet with the Bush frontman in hopes of clearing the air as he continues to spend time with the former couple's sons, Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 2.
“Blake insisted that he and Gavin have a few drinks and talk about boundaries with Gwen and with their sons,” an insider revealed to Radar Online on Wednesday. “Blake’s man enough to know Gavin must be feeling insecure about his growing presence in his sons’ lives. He wanted to clear the air and assure Gavin that he’ll always be their dad.”
“They even talked about what particular activities are special to Gavin so Blake made sure he didn’t do the same with the boys,” revealed the insider. “It was a smart and compassionate move and it’s helped Gwen get on better with Gavin, who doesn’t feel like some kind of axe murderer when he’s around the family any more. He and Blake have definitely come to respect each other.”
Since Stefani's romance with Shelton began in 2016, months after her divorce from Rossdale was confirmed, she and Shelton have been spending tons of time as a family with her kids and earlier this month, in the midst of Stefani's tour, the children visited Shelton's Oklahoma home.
