Gwen Stefani met her English musician ex-husband - Gavin Rossdale in private, to discuss Stefani's romance with her current boyfriend, the American country singer - Blake Shelton.

As stated by US Weekly, a source claimed that even though Stefani and Rossdale have shared custody since their breakup in August 2015 after nearly 13 years of marriage, the former lead singer of the rock band Bush had an "emotional" meeting with Stefani to reassert his father's rights.

The source made an explanation that, "Stefani had a meeting with Gavin to talk about her relationship with Shelton and how it will affect the children going forward. While Rossdale wants to be consulted on everything concerning the kids and the role that Blake is playing in their lives."

According to TV 3, the former No Doubt lead vocalist and Rossdale have sons, 10 year old Kingston, seven year old Zuma and the two year old Apollo. But, reports came up that Stefani's relationship with Blake cuts off some of her time she spends with their children.

As stated by E Online, the divorce of Gwen and Gavin has caused a "bit of bad blood" to run through both the musicians. And a source claimed that over the past few months, Stefani's children have gotten close with Shelton and have learned to love the country singer - which was hard for Rossdale to bear.

The source stated that, "If it were up to Gavin, he would want to work it out with Gwen. Rossdale is still hurt, it has turned out this way and now she is in love with another man." As for Stefani's estranged husband, he's "not dating anyone right now."

However, Stefani and Shelton started their romantic engagement in October 2015 following their respective divorces from the country music singer Miranda Lambert and Rossdale. And since then, Shelton has formed a tight bond with Stefani's children.
