Gwen Stefani talks failed marriage with Gavin Rossdale; BF Blake an ‘unexpected gift’
Gwen Stefani’s ten-year marriage with Gavin Rossdale ended up back in 2015. Back then, Gwen felt embarrassed because she does not want to look like a failure. Now, the No Doubt lead singer finds her new boyfriend Blake Shelton and labeled him as an unexpected gift.
In an interview with Glamour, Gwen Stefani shared that after her divorce with Rossdale, she found a friend. Unexpected friend perhaps. Her fellow judge on The Voice, Blake Shelton became her boyfriend.
Gwen Stefani told Glamour in an interview during the Women of The Year Special, “He was a friend to me when I needed a friend. And that became an inspiration for the song writing, I’ve learned a lot about country music from him.”
Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton first bonded during the NBC’s The Voice Season 9. At that time, Gwen had her divorce and Blake also divorced Miranda Lambert. As many would know both of their musical backgrounds are quite far, but they also share some similarities.
Gwen added that “It’s definitely two different cultures, but there are many similarities, in things that we love and our morals. But it’s really fun when you can learn about so many new things and share those differences.”
It shows that their relationship came at the right place at the right time, as her divorce with Rossdale slowly imposes on her. One of Gwen’s “Don’ts” would be the failure of marriage, given she does not mind what other people think about her. She shared that the during marriage plays an important role and must need hard work to be successful in married life.

On the other, not only Gwen is thankful to have Blake in her life, but also Blake is thankful for Gwen. He shared that Gwen saved his life. He said that “Who else on earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician? You can’t even imagine the similarities in our divorces.” Now, the couple is just thankful to have each other, according to IBTimes.
