NEW YORK (AP) — Recently divorced singer Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, who filed for divorce in August, are dating.

A representative for Shelton confirmed on Wednesday that the two stars are a couple. Both Shelton and Stefani are mentors on NBC’s “The Voice.”

Stefani filed for divorce from fellow musician Gavin Rossdale in August after nearly 13 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. Both are seeking joint custody of their three children.

Shelton announced that he and singer Miranda Lambert were divorced after four years of marriage in July.

Both Shelton and Lambert attended Wednesday night’s Country Music Association Awards in Nashville, Tennessee.

Lambert won female vocalist of the year, which was her sixth consecutive win in the category. “I appreciate it. I needed a bright spot this year,” she said onstage. Lambert could have been referring to her divorce to Blake Shelton.

Shelton, who performed at the live show on ABC, confirmed Wednesday just hours before the awards show that he and Gwen Stefani are dating. Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley joked about the divorce at the top of the show.

“And of course we can’t ignore the breakup that rocked our world,” Underwood said, as the camera panned to Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog.

“On a completely unrelated topic, howdy Blake?” Paisley replied as the camera panned to Shelton, who laughed and clapped his hands along with the audience.

“Did you hear that duet that Blake did with Ashley Madison?” Paisley asked. Underwood replied: “That was with Ashley Monroe.”
