Wrench in the Works
“The church cannot condone a marriage after a divorce — unless the marriage isn’t recognized in the first place,” an insider previously pointed out, adding that “Gavin refuses to say their marriage never existed.”
His Biggest Fan
Regardless of the behind-the-scenes drama, Stefani didn’t seem to have a care in the world when she and her 13-year-old son Kingston watched Shelton from the sidelines during his set at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles on July 21.
Stefani then jumped on stage and performed alongside her future husband.
Smiling Through the Pain
Though she was all smiles, as Radar readers know, 49-year-old Stefani is devoutly religious and wants to have a Catholic wedding, but she can’t do so unless she secures an annulment.
Meanwhile, 43-year-old country crooner Shelton — who isn’t Catholic — could not care less about getting married in the church, said the insider. The celebrities in this article did not respond to Radar’s requests for comments.
