Gwen Stefani Says Her Life 'Fell Apart' During Her Divorce, But Blake Shelton Saved Her

Gwen Stefani is opening up about her divorce from Gavin Rossdale again in a new interview.

“When I started the first version of this record — the fake, cheating version — the intention was like, ‘What can it sound like? I want to be back on the radio. I want this, I want that.’ Then, last February, I think a lot of people know that my life fell apart,” the 46-year-old singer told NPR.

“I got a divorce. The D-word,” Gwen added. “You just crumble, you know? I was down — I was all the way down. And I just felt like, ‘God, I gotta turn this around. I can’t go down like this. I have to know that this is happening for a reason.’ And I knew that I had to turn to music.”

Gwen had support from her new boyfriend Blake Shelton to get her through the breakup.

“It was a really super unexpected gift to find a friend, somebody who happened to be going through the exact same thing as me, literally mirroring my experience,” she told Refinery29. “I don’t think it’s an accident that that happened. It saved me.”

    How many times do we have to see this same article over and over and over again? We get it, she had a shitty divorce and Blake was there and now they’re in love, blah blah blah. There’s literally 23 articles on the same exact thing. It’s like a broken record. Every week, we get the same story, the same quote, either by her or Blake. I like them both, but because of these constant same parrot news outlets, I’m getting annoying with them both. It’s like they’re trying to prove their love or something to us. We don’t care.
