Gwen Stefani‘s annulment from ex-husband Gavin Rossdale was “finally granted” by the Catholic church, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.
“Gwen was told the decision was made by the Vatican tribunal,” the insider says five years after the pair called it quits in August 2015. “She will be receiving the notification in writing in the next few weeks, but it’s official.”
The annulment previously served as a barrier between Stefani, 51, and fiancé Blake Shelton tying the knot in a church.
“It was a huge relief for Gwen because she wanted to get married by her priest and have the marriage recognized by the Catholic church,” the source says.
