Nothing says ‘#datenight’ like an old picture of you and your ex (with your new man edited in!).
Gwen Stefani posted a throwback picture of her younger self rocking low rise jeans, a printed belt and a black crop top with her hair in a funky updo standing next to a younger Blake Shelton with a mullet and hat. She captioned the photo: “#datenight@acmawards w my boo @blakeshelton gx.”
While fans were quick to comment, “love this,” it didn’t take long for people to realize the adorable snap was a retouched version of the ‘Hollaback Girl’ singer’s 2014 post celebrating her wedding anniversary with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale, 54. Shelton was photoshopped in place of her former man.
“This is kind of a slap in the face to Gavin lol,” one user wrote, while another added: “You did NOT with this photoshopping!!!!”
The former couple — who share three sons, Kingston, 13, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 6 — tied the knot in September 2002 and split in August 2015, the same year the ‘God’s Country’ singer split from his ex-wife and country singer Miranda Lambert.
Stefani and Shelton — who performed ‘Happy Anywhere’ at the 2020 ACM on Wednesday, September 16 — met shortly after they both separated from their previous lovers, as judges on The Voice in 2015. The duo, who often shows their PDA via touching social media tributes, and through the three romantic songs they wrote together, has plans for marriage. However, the coronavirus pandemic has interfered with moving forward with their wedding plans, as they want family and friends to celebrate the milestone.
Even though the church has yet to grant an annulment for Stefani’s previous marriage, the ‘Just a Girl’ singer “very much wants the marriage to be recognized by the church,” but will walk down the aisle regardless. The pair will also allegedly be signing a $210 million prenup.
The 50-year-old pop star and 44-year-old country singer recently moved into their L.A. mansion together with the blonde beauty’s three children, but a source dished to OK! that Shelton may not be Mr. Right. “Blake is a good-old country boy, and Gwen’s a cool, punk-rock L.A. queen. Her friends are all liberals that support a woman’s right to choose and LGBTQ rights too. Gwen hosted an Obama fundraiser at her home in Beverly Hills and is friends with Michelle Obama,” the source added. “Blake is much more conservative. As the election gets closer and closer, they are struggling to find common ground. The next 4 weeks before election day are going to be rough.”
