Blake Shelton, Gavin Rossdale Feuding Over Their Holiday Plans
OK! magazine, in its Dec. 27 issue, claimed that Shelton and Rossdale’s peaceful relationship is just all for show. In fact, the holiday season is, allegedly, causing problems between the two dads because they both want to spend time with Apollo, Kingston, and Zuma.
“Everyone’s bracing for some fireworks this Christmas. Gavin will have the boys during a portion of the holidays and will be popping over for pickups and drop-offs, so it’s bound to get uncomfortable. He has a way of sticking around and nosing into their business, which ticks Blake off,” an unnamed source said.
The unnamed source added that Rossdale still couldn’t believe that Shelton ended up with his ex-wife because he still sees the country singer as a hillbilly who got lucky.
“It’s gotten under Blake’s skin of late because Gavin knows how to press his buttons,” the unnamed source said.

Months earlier, another source said that Rossdale struggled to accept that Stefani had already moved on and is now dating Shelton.
“It is challenging for Gavin to watch his boys grow closer and more attached to Gwen’s boyfriend Blake. As Gwen’s relationship with Blake continues to grow stronger, Gavin struggles with how much quality time Blake spends with his sons, time that Gavin sometimes feels should be a time that he is bonding with his sons,” the source said.
