Gwen Stefani threw a major curveball during her interview with
San Diego’s Frankie and Geena Morning Show on Channel 933, when she appeared to backtrack on her relationship status with Blake Shelton (even though Shelton’s camp has confirmed that the pair are dating).
But if she’s trying to avoid media attention and keep things private, her new picture is definitely sending out some major mixed signals.
On Tuesday, Stefani took to Instagram to share a picture of herself, Shelton, and Pharrell Williams looking very happy as they posed for a picture on the set of The Voice (Shelton and Stefani look particularly cozy as she leans her hip into him). She captioned the picture with, “[heart] them @nbcthevoice gx.”
If Stefani is worried about the potential public backlash over her new relationship — since she and Shelton both recently got divorced — she need not be concerned, because fans are clearly thrilled, as evidenced by the comments on the post.

And sadie.patricaaa also had a message for all the haters out there. She wrote, “Hey don’t listen to all them haters I might just seem like another billion fan but don’t listen to them, YOU AND BLAKE ARE MENT [sic] TO BE, I’m glad he got a divorce bc it lead he to you.
