When it comes to divorcing Gavin Rossdale, Gwen Stefani has her share of regrets, but she's trying to stay as positive as possible. The former No Doubt frontwoman recently opened up about their split, saying she's suffered two major heart breaks in her life and each has lead her to create beautiful music.
In a recent interview with "The Tommy Show" on Washington, D.C.'s 94.7 FM Stefani said she "can't believe" the current state of things between her and her estranged husband. As Us Weekly reported she told the show's hosts she wished the divorce hadn't happened, but added that a lot of good had come out of it. For example, Stefani, 46, said, she's been given a second shot at love and has written "incredible music," largely inspired by her heart break. The "Used To Love You" singer thought back to the first of her two nasty breakups, saying she sometimes listens to the music she wrote afterwards and gets "sick."
"I wish that all this wasn't happening, but it was part of my life journey. In my life I've had two really bad heartbreaks, but I've written some really inscredible music out of it," she said. "Because of my situation right now I feel like I got back and listen to a lot of that stuff and I get sick. You look at the song and go, 'That was a red flag and that was a moment where I was feeling just as bad as I do today and why did I keep it up?'"
On Nov. 13, it was reported that Stefani and Rossdale, 50, split after the mother-of-three learned her husband had been having an affair with Mindy Mann, a family nanny. Stefani reportedly learned of the affair in February when another nanny found questionable texts between Rossdale and Mann on an iPad. Sources told Us Weekly the Apple device "was linked to Gavin's phone."
Stefani has moved on from Rossdale with her NBC "The Voice" co-star Blake Shelton. According to AOL, the singer's rep confirmed their newfound romance earlier this month.
