Gwen Stefani opened up about her “unexpected divorce” saying that she wishes that “it didn’t happen“. The “Used to Love You” singer appeared on The Tommy Show on Wednesday morning and talked about her 13-year marriage and hinted at the rumours that have been surrounding them. According to US Weekly, Stefani’s husband – Gavin Rossdale – allegedly cheated with the family nanny for three years.
She said: “I feel like I go back and listen to a lot of that stuff, and I get sick. You look at the song and you go ‘That was a red flag’. That was a moment where I was feeling just as bad as I feel today and why did I keep it up? I wish it didn’t happen, I wish that all of this wasn’t happening but at the same time, I feel like it was part of my life journey. In my life, I’ve had two really bad heartbreaks and I’ve written some incredible music out of it and I feel so lucky to have that and to be able to share it”.
Stefani has also admitted that her new single, “Used To Love You,” was written during a period when her life was falling apart. She said, “I had been writing because my life blew up, everybody knows that my life blew up last February. I’d just been dealing with that”.
The couple filed for divorce in August after being together for nearly 20 years and have three children – all boys, Kingston aged 9, Zuma aged 7 and one-year-old Apollo. The star has since moved on with fellow Voice coach and country singer, Blake Shelton.
