Shelton reportedly just flew into Nashville on Tuesday to get ready for the show, but he wasn’t alone on his private jet. According to TMZ, Gwen Stefani also traveled with him.
TMZ is also reporting that Stefani has not yet decided whether she will attend the show with Shelton, but it is definitely a discussion on the table.
Shelton will be performing at the awards show, as will his newly dubbed ex-wife Miranda Lambert.
Shelton and Stefani have been heating up romance rumors as of late. They were spotted getting flirty on Halloween, and have reportedly been spending a lot of time together since both of their marriages ended this past summer.
When asked by Ryan Seacrest yesterday morning about the romance rumors, Stefani played coy at first but then opened up, explaining, “But to be super honest, it is kind of crazy we both went through the same thing at the same time. There’s [sic] been so many people that I’ve gotten so much comfort from.”
She continued, “I don’t know anything right now. I’m living in the moment, you know what I’m saying?
“But I think he’s hot, don’t you?” she also said.
Multiple sources confirm to TMZ that the two are spending a lot of time together, but say they aren’t in an official relationship yet. Right now, the two remain good friends. But whether that friendship comes with some serious future-type benefits remains to be seen.
