Gavin Rossdale Spotted With His 27-Year-Old Girlfriend During Christmas Shopping Trip Amid Reports He's Preventing Gwen Stefani From Marrying Blake Shelton
Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale and model Natalie Golba made their red carpet debut as a couple back in May at the John Wick 3 premiere in New York City - as Bush recorded the movie’s title track Bullet Holes - but, they have laid relatively low as a couple ever since. However, this past weekend, the couple was spotted on a last minute Christmas shopping trip in Beverly Hills.
Rossdale, 54, wore a green flannel button-up over a black tee with black pants splattered with neon paint. And Golba, 27, opted for a white puffy jacket over a black t-shirt and leggings and a small black backpack as an accessory.
Before his relationship with Golba, Rossdale dated German actress Sophie Thomalia, but they broke up some time in 2018. Thomalia was the first woman Rossdale stepped out with publicly after his split from ex-wife Gwen Stefani in 2015.
Rossdale and Stefani were married from 2002 to 2016 and they share three children: Kingston, 13, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 5.
As fans know, Stefani has been dating her The Voice co-star Blake Shelton since 2015, and wedding rumors have surrounded the couple from the beginning. Recent reports claim that the couple is ready to tie the knot, but Stefani wants a church wedding, which isn’t possible as she is a Roman Catholic with a divorce in her past.
According to Hollywood Life , Stefani must annul her marriage to Rossdale if she wants to wed Shelton in the Catholic church. Legally, that can’t happen since their divorce has already been finalized in the state of California. But, the Catholic church has their own rules regarding annulments, says California lawyer Kelly Chang Rickert.
“But to be clear, if the Church approves her annulment, it will not change her legal status as DIVORCED by the family court,” said Chang Rickert.
Stefani is apparently waiting for a ruling from the Vatican over the annulment of her marriage to Rossdale in the eyes of the church, but it isn't clear if he is trying to prevent that from happening. Us Weekly reported that Stefani started the formal process in March, and her religion “has always been extremely important to her.”
The Voice just wrapped its 17th season this month. Blake Shelton will back in 2020 for Season 18, while Gwen Stefani will wrap up her residency in Las Vegas.
