Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert got divorced this summer, with their split hitting the news in July. In early August, Gwen Stefani announced she and husband Gavin Rossdale were divorcing, too.
Since this season of The Voice has gotten underway, rumors of flirtations between Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have run rampant. Some of the rumors have the two already in the deepest throes of love.

Sources close to both Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani say there's no truth at all to those rumors.
"It's total bulls---," one source says. "There's nothing there. They're nothing more than friends."
Shelton and Stefani have a lot of fun together on The Voice. That much is definitely true.
"I don't think anybody's more covered up than Gwen, from just raising three boys and balancing a TV show and a solo record or a No Doubt record and touring and her clothing line," Blake Shelton said of his fellow coach earlier this summer. "Every day in the compound, you see her having a meeting with people you've never seen her having a meeting with before. It's crazy."
Gwen Stefani thinks Blake Shelton is great, too.
"He's such a fun, funny guy. He just seems like such a good person. I love being around him," she says.
A source close to Blake Shelton says he's not ready to enter the dating world just yet, claiming he's "focusing on himself" right now.
"He's open to another relationship in the future, but just not now," the source says.
Gwen Stefani barely has time to sleep--let alone enter into another relationship.

Those who hoped to see an instant couple made from Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani during this season of The Voice will be a bit disappointed to learn it simply isn't going to happen.
That doesn't mean fans can't enjoy their hilarious banter--along with that of Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams, too.
Next season Christina Aguilera is taking Gwen Stefani's place. Maybe by then Blake will be ready to start dating.
Do you think he'll set his sights on someone from the country music world or simply wait to see who comes along?
It probably won't be Gwen Stefani.
