Country star Blake Shelton is navigating life as a single man for the first time in a decade – and is looking better than ever! Subscribe now for an inside look into how he's moving on after his divorce, only in PEOPLE.

Blake Shelton is now one of country's most eligible men, but one thing's for certain: contrary to reports, the star is not dating Gwen Stefani.

"It's total bulls---," says a source of Shelton. "There's nothing there. They're nothing more than friends."

But the two do have a fun rapport on The Voice (airing Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST) and have bonded on set with the rest of the cast.



"I don't think anybody's more covered up than Gwen, from just raising three boys and balancing a TV show and a solo record or a No Doubt record and touring and her clothing line," Shelton, 39, told PEOPLE earlier this summer. "Every day in the compound, you see her having a meeting with people you've never seen her having a meeting with before. It's crazy."

Says Stefani, 46, (who announced her split from Gavin Rossdale in August; Shelton and Miranda Lambert announced their divorce in July) of becoming fast friends with Shelton: "He's such a fun, funny guy. He just seems like such a good person. I love being around him."

For now, the country singer is not quite ready to date and is "focusing on himself," says the source. "He's open to another relationship in the future, but just not now."
