5 Dos & Don'ts When Running Into Your Ex

Gwen Stefani couldn’t mask her uncomfortableness when she was forced to sit through her son Kingston’s basketball game alongside her cheating ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.

The two appeared into the game, mostly ignoring each other, until afterwards, when they both congratulated their son, reports the Daily Mail.

Their co-parenting attempt follows last week’s run in, when Gwen was spotted leaving Gavin’s Mulholland Estates home looking visibly upset. The two singers will have to deal with each other continually, as they settled on joint custody for their three sons. Their divorce, after 13 years of marriage, was finalized last month, with Gwen getting to keep her millions

The No Doubt frontwoman is now in a serious relationship with country star Blake Shelton. The two even wrote a duet together, called Go Ahead and Break My Heart.

Charlize Theron had her own awkward run in with her ex boyfriend, Sean Penn.

The actress and the actor/director had to put on a united front to promote their film, The Last Face, at the Cannes Film Festival. They had a photocell for the movie, where they kept a polite distance, placing co-stars Jared Harris, Jean Reno, Javier Bardem and Adele Exarchopoulos between them in the pictures. At a press conference later on, they sat far apart at the long table facing the crowd. 

It was reported that Charlize had ghosted Sean following the split, but she claims to not even have known what the term meant.

There is a need to sensationalize things. When you leave a relationship there has to be some f***ing crazy story or some crazy drama,” she told WSJ magazine. “And the f***ing ghosting thing, like literally, I still don’t even know what it is. It’s just its own beast. We were in a relationship and then it didn’t work anymore. And we both decided to separate. That’s it.”'

The Oscar winner also explained that work is work, and that she still loves the movie they made. 

“You can't control what people say, but, at the end of the day, we made a film. We were in a relationship at the time. When this movie comes out, we're not in a relationship anymore,” she told GQ. "But we made a beautiful film and I can speak for him on this: we both care enough about each other to know we care about this movie together. Do I wish people would respect that and look at the film for what it is? Of course I do, but I know I'm not God and that's probably not going to happen.”
