More than five years after the official separation, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale received a cancellation by the Catholic Church, according to a new report.
“Gwen was told the decision was made by the Vatican court,” a source told Us Weekly. “He will receive written notification in the coming weeks, but it is official.”
Undoubtedly, the 51-year-old frontier filed for divorce from the 54-year-old rocker in August 2015, after almost 13 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. They completed their divorce in April 2016.
It seems that Stefani postponed the idea of marrying her fiancé Blake Shelton until the annulment was completed because of her religious beliefs. Receiving the official blessing of the Catholic Church, the source believes, should move things.
“It was a huge relief for Gwen because she wanted to marry her priest and have the marriage recognized by the Catholic Church,” the source added.
Stefani and Rossdale share their sons Kingston, 13, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 6.
