Ugh, clearly, this is going to be a long and tumultuous breakup.
Gwen Stefani said in a new interview with The New York Times that she’s unhappy about sharing joint custody of her children with ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale. And I get it- she just had to process the fact that Gavin cheated on her for years with their kids’ nanny and Gwen style sycophant Mindy Mann. It’s kinda enough to make anyone go a little crazy…
“It’s like, the most unjust, unbelievable system,” Stefani told NYT of being made to share her boys with her ex.
There was a silver lining to the 50 percent of time that she didn’t get to spend with her three sons, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2, though. It allowed her to write music for her upcoming album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like, Which is getting pretty good traction after such a traumatic ordeal.
“I am dead, actually. How do I save myself? What am I going to do? How do I not go down like this?” she remembered thinking to herself at the time. “I have to make music out of this. That’s what God wants for me,” she added, explaining that recording helped her heal. “Being in that room and being creative, it was the only place that felt good — I was like, ‘I love the smell of this room.’”
But don’t get it twisted, OBVI Blake Shelton helped in a VERY public way.
“[He] had been going through literally the exact same thing in literally the exact same time frame,” Stefani explained. The country couple split in July, just two weeks before Stefani and Rossdale announced they were divorcing.

How convenient. Gwen seems like the type that ALWAYS needs a dude so makes sense she would make the bridge but also, she’s probably at a weird crossroads where she has kids and has been married, but can just kinda do what she wants to do without that pressure. Hey, I might be wrong…but only time will tell if wedding bells will ring for Gwen a 2nd time.
Until then, enjoy that new album!
