Gwen Stefani, 48, is forced to go back to the negotiation table with ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, 52, who wants more time with his children.
And according to the latest reports, Blake Shelton has Gwen’s back as she deals with this stressful situation.
The former couple had reached a custody agreement two years ago but now Gavin is demanding a renewed conversation on custody rights over his three sons — Kingston, 12, Zuma, 10, and Apollo, 4.
A source close to the couple said Blake is present for his girlfriend and he supports her because she is a great mother.
The insider said: “Blake has been a whole rock for Gwen as she deals with stressful mediation with Gavin over different parenting issues and styles. Blake can’t do much more than listen and be loving and supportive as Gwen battles with Gavin over custody issues and how she wants to raise the boys.”
The person added: “Blake wishes he could do more, but he is pretty powerless and can only support Gwen. But that is what she needs right now, Gwen is really glad she has Blake by her side, giving her the confidence to fight for what she feels is best for her kids. She is grateful to have Blake with her during this challenging time.”
The No Doubt diva is fighting back against her ex because she believes that she is providing a more family friendly environment for her sons while he lives for partying and having fun like a true rock star.
The source went on to reveal: “Gwen believes that she provides a consistent living environment and that the kids should be with her the majority of the time. They are older now and taking their school work and activities seriously. She thinks Gavin still very much lives a rock star lifestyle and it’s in the kid’s best interest to be with her. She wants to raise the kids a certain way, and it’s very challenging because Gavin has different priorities.”
Many believe that Gwen and Blake have created a loving space for the children. According to reports, they might even have more in the future.
