Stefani's rep confirmed the rumors to Us Weekly, saying, "Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating" and as soon as that happened, Twitter went wild with criticism and hate.
It’s important (?) to note that Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton's divorce only happened this past summer, while Stefani announced that she and hubby Gavin Rossdale were parting ways after 13 years of marriage back in August. It all seems rather sudden and the Twitterverse certainly had a few things to say about Hollywood's newest couple…
