Family reunion. Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton reunited with Gavin Rossdale after rumors the exes had “bad terms”. Gwen and Blake were seen at her 7-year-old son Apollo’s baseball game in Studio City, California, on November 14, 2021.
Also, Gwen’s ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, was spotted two rows behind her, as seen in photos obtained by the Daily Mail. Her parents were also with Gwen and Blake, Dennis and Patti Stefani. Before the match, Gwen wore a red Adidas tracksuit with pink and white checkered Van slip-on sneakers. Her platinum blonde hair was styled in a messy bun and she completed the look with a signature red lip. Blake, for his part, wore a black short-sleeved button-up shirt, jeans, brown boots and a white and green baseball cap.
Gavin was seen in a white T-shirt and olive green cargo pants. According to the Daily Mail photos, Gavin stood up at various points, took pictures of Apollo and cheered his son on. Gwen and Blake were also photographed earlier in the game carrying chairs as Apollo walked beside them wearing a baseball glove and black backpack.
The reunion comes after a source on OK! magazine in July 2021 that Gwen and Gavin, who divorced in 2016 after 14 years of marriage, had “bad terms” about Blake’s relationship with their sons: Apollo, 7, Zuma, 13, and Kingston, 15. According to the insider, Blake, who married Gwen in July 2021, was “super excited” to officially become a stepfather to her sons, but knew that Gavin also had his own “rules” about what Blake got to do as Apollo, Zuma and Kingston’s stepfather.
“Gavin wants to lay down some ground rules,” a source said at the time. “He’s been criticized in the past at Blake for seemingly breaking his boundaries, and is ready to make it clear that he has final authority with the boys…[He] also wants to make it clear that slandering in front of the children will not be tolerated.”
The insider explained that even though Gwen and Gavin were on “bad terms”, he wanted to talk to Blake about his sons because he knows that he will “always” be in a co-parenting relationship with him and Gwen. “Gavin would like to say his piece sooner rather than later,” the source said. “Gavin may still be on bad terms with Gwen, but he will always be a part of those guys’ lives.”
A source told Us Weekly in September 2021 about how Blake feels “safer” with Gwen than anyone else he’s been with, including his ex-wife Miranda Lambert. Blake is much safer with Gwen,” the insider said. “He can trust her and there is mutual respect.” The source explained that Blake and Gwen work because they want to see each other despite their busy schedules. “It was something Blake insisted on,” the insider said. “They also address issues as they surface. Nothing sticks.”
The source also added that “Blake could never be vulnerable in his first two marriages.” Blake was married to Miranda Lambert from 2011 to 2015 and to primary school teacher Kaynette Gern from 2003 to 2006.
