Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have done nothing to make fans think that they’re on the verge of a breakup, but rumors persist that the odd couple is about to split. Most big celebrity couples have to deal with tabloid reports that their relationships are doomed, and many times these high-profile relationships don’t last. However, it’s definitely possible for Hollywood love stories to have happy endings, even when the parties involved come from two completely different worlds like Gwen and Blake do. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban are a perfect example of this.
According to Gossip Cop, a recent tabloid report alleges that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton “are on the rocks.”
“They are out of the honeymoon phase,” a supposed insider told Life & Style. “They’re just very different people and it feels like the end of their relationship could be soon. They’re clearly on the rocks.”
However, as the Inquisitr previously reported, Gwen and Blake certainly haven’t been acting like a couple that is finally out of what has been a very long “honeymoon phase.” In fact, Gwen Stefani revealed that she spent Monday night admiring the “honeymoon” with Blake Shelton. This is why it should come as no surprise to “Shefani” fans that Gossip Cop has debunked the breakup reports.
Because Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are two very different people, some of their fans might worry that what they have is a rebound romance that won’t last. However, the pop star and the country singer wouldn’t be the first celebrity odd couple to prove naysayers wrong by staying together.
As Entertainment Tonight reports, actress Nicole Kidman and country singer Keith Urban celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary on June 25. Just like Cali girl Gwen and cowboy Blake, the Aussie stars come from two different worlds; Keith grew up on a farm, and Nicole was raised in the big city of Sidney.
“At first it may have seemed like a surprising pairing, the statuesque Oscar winner and the Nashville-based country singer, but the couple have quietly proved countless times over just how right for each other they were,” E! News writes of the couple.
When Nicole Kidman talks about the beginning of her relationship with Keith Urban, her comments are very similar to what Gwen Stefani says when she talks about how she and Blake Shelton fell for each other.
“I think we were two lonely people. I would probably say that two very lonely people managed to meet at a time when they could open themselves to each other. We were a mixture of frightened and brave,” Nicole told Vanity Fair.
During an interview with Refinery 29, Gwen Stefani revealed that she and Blake Shelton were also in a dark place when they first started dating; they were both recovering from devastating divorces, and Gwen said that she was feeling pretty “hopeless” at the time. However, just like Keith and Nicole, she and Blake both happened to be at the right place emotionally at the right time.
“It was a really super-unexpected gift to find a friend, somebody who happened to be going through the exact same thing as me, literally mirroring my experience. I don’t think it’s an accident that that happened. It saved me,” Gwen said.
During an interview with People, Keith Urban similarly suggested that divine intervention played a part in bringing him and Nicole Kidman together when they needed each other.
“Definitely we both met each other exactly at the right time. She said early on that she wanted to be brave with me. I feel there was something else at work, bringing us together and then just continuing to watch over us.”
Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman got married after just a month of dating, and Nicole told Entertainment Tonight that they have a secret to keeping their relationship strong after a decade together.
“As much as we love each other, we really like each other,” Nicole revealed. “I’m speaking for myself, but that is a huge part of being married. Always, the first person I want to share anything with is him. It’s true.”
Luckily for “Shefani” fans, Gwen Stefani already knows the importance of liking the man she’s with just as much as she loves him. As the Los Angeles Times reports, Gwen even penned a song titled “Make Me Like You” that’s all about Blake.
Gwen also shares Nicole Kidman’s desire to share big moments with her man. This is evidenced by a behind-the-scenes video from the set of the live “Make Me Like You” music video that aired during the Grammy Awards. As you can see, Gwen started desperately searching for Blake so she could share her happy moment with him.
