Three years ago, after Gavin Rossdale’s alleged affair with the nanny, his 13-year marriage to Gwen Stefani imploded. The couple split in 2015 and divorced the next year, and since then the former couple has done their best to keep the nasty details from affecting their three boys — Kingston, 12, Zuma, 10, and Apollo, 4. But, a new report claims that Rossdale is jealous of Stefani’s boyfriend Blake Shelton and the relationship that he has with the kids. And, when you see the pics from the past few months of Shelton with the boys, Rossdale’s alleged jealousy makes sense.
This past year, cameras have caught Shelton attending church with Stefani and all three boys, and we have also seen The Voice star backstage at Stefani’s Las Vegas show with Apollo. Shelton has also attended birthday parties and taken the boys fishing at his Oklahoma ranch. And, each picture just gets cuter and cuter.

Hey guys!I know… I was out for a few days and I'm really sorry for not posting as often as before, but I'm trying my best to organize my personal, professional, and social life so that we keep sharing our love here ❤ I'm very late in the posts, but at least the page will be updated now 😁 Since we didn't have the church pics yesterday (they're spending a quality time in Oklahoma #laborday 💪🏻), I decided to do this little edit for all of us who miss them sm 👨👩👦👦 __________________________________________ #gwenstefani #blakeshelton #kingstonrossdale #zumarossdale #apollorossdale #gwensboys #cutestkids #family #familymoment #cuteness #blessed #thankgod #churchday #missthem #loveislove #edit @gwenstefani @blakeshelton
According to In Touch Weekly, since Shelton started dating Stefani almost three years ago, he has become a second father figure to her boys, and an insider says that Rossdale isn’t a fan of his sons spending so much time in the country.
“Gavin says he doesn’t like that his children are being raised as little cowboys, with all that time spent at Blake’s home in Oklahoma,” says the insider. “But it’s really about Blake.”
A second source says that Rossdale sees Shelton as a threat because the kids are “always raving about how wonderful Blake is, and all the fun activities they do.” However, Rossdale is their dad, and he intends to keep it that way.

In the past, Rossdale has said that both he and his ex-wife want what is best for their kids, and they also want them to be safe and happy. But, that doesn’t mean they necessarily agree on what is best, and recently they had to turn to a mediator because they continue to fight over how to raise their sons.
The exes spent an entire day in mediation earlier this month, and an insider says one of their biggest problems is Rossdale’s jealousy. He feels replaced by Blake Shelton, and he also has anger issues even though it was his infidelity that ended the marriage.
For Stefani, she has problems with Rossdale’s rockstar lifestyle and prefers to raise the boys in a consistent, stable, and religious environment. They all had a tough time adjusting after the divorce, and she has worked hard getting the boys into a routine and living their new lives.
But Rossdale wants to spend more time with them when his concert tour ends next month, and Stefani doesn’t want him disrupting the structure she has built.
Gwen Stefani still thinks that Gavin Rossdale is a good dad, but ultimately, she is concerned about how his wild lifestyle and lack of religion will affect their boys.
