Gwen meets Gavin’s new girl­friend

And it’s all a bit awk­ward

Heat (UK) - - This Week - CHARLOTTE OLIVER

She fa­mously sang Don’t Speak, so Gwen Ste­fani must not have been amused by the awk­ward en­counter she found her­self in last week – hav­ing to make small talk with her ex-hus­band Gavin Ross­dale and his new girl­friend. And of course, it was as mor­ti­fy­ing as you would ex­pect.

Pho­tog­ra­phers cap­tured the painful mo­ment in LA, when the No Doubt singer shook hands with model Sophia Thoma­lla, 28, ahead of a chil­dren’s foot­ball game. The group shared forced smiles be­fore Gavin and Sophia – who have been dat­ing since last July – took them­selves to the other side of the benches to cheer on the for­mer cou­ple’s son, Kingston.

Gwen, 48, and the Bush singer, 52, mar­ried in 2002, be­fore split­ting in 2016. They share cus­tody of their three chil­dren, 11-year-old Kingston, Zuma, nine, and Apollo, three. It was a dif­fi­cult pe­riod for the singer, who has since spo­ken out about the heart­break she felt amid al­le­ga­tions that Gavin had been cheat­ing on her with their kids’ nanny.

“For a long time, I just couldn’t un­der­stand why I’ve had so much heartache in my life,” she later re­vealed. “I have par­ents who are still mar­ried and in love. I had such lov­ing role mod­els.”

But hap­pily, she’s since moved on, find­ing love with her “best friend” and co-judge on The Voice, coun­try singer Blake Shel­ton. Here’s hop­ing that, dur­ing their brief en­counter, Gwen was quick to re­mind Gavin and Sofia that Blake is Peo­ple mag­a­zine’s reign­ing “Sex­i­est Man Alive”. Al­ways worth a men­tion.
