Blake really helped me.” The Voice duo made their first appearance as a couple at a CMA Awards afterparty on Wednesday. The Used To Love You singer insisted she tried to keep her new romance private. When asked about their relationship going public, Stefani retorted: “We didn’t! Like, somebody did. That’s what’s so crazy like, who announces that? Why would I do that?” Shelton, 39, filed for divorce from Miranda Lambert on July 6 in Oklahoma. Their separation was finalized quickly as a prenup was set in place. Stefani and Rossdale announced their split weeks later. Another Voice co-star has been by Stefani’s side. “Not to change the subject, but it’s kinda on the same subject, Pharrell was literally like a guardian angel,” she added. Stefani’s radio interview will air on Monday at 4 p.m. CT.
