Makes Statement0 Comments

Stefani is reportedly relieved that Rossdale’s affair with their former nanny has been exposed. Source:

No one likes to see the person dragged into the light like this, but in this case there’s a sense of relief people now know what she was dealing with.

Reports say Rossdale was suspicious of her relationship with Shelton, and that he believes she may have been seeing Shelton before they divorced. Source:

The divorce is final, and she’s the one who stood the most to lose, so it doesn’t make any sense. After a lot of the BS stories about Gavin still wearing his ring, she and everyone who is close to her are relieved that truth has seen the light of day.

Sources say Rossdale insisted to Stefani that the exchange was simply “flirtation,. When he finally confessed to the affair months later, he made the decision to end their marriage. The couple announced their plans to divorce in August. Source:

[The admission] completely devastated her. She was mortified, livid, and embarrassed.

Stefani, Rossdale divorce

Divorce0 Comments

Stefani files for divorce from Rossdale, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. Rossdale is said to have filed his response at the same time, and both parties are allegedly seeking joint custody of their children. Stefani is not planning on providing Gavin with spousal support.

While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment. To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time.

Stefani appears on the cover of Cosmopolitan. Stefani discusses her music career.

My parents taught us, ‘[music] is your hobby. People don’t make it. It just doesn’t happen.’ It still shocks me that people care about me. I trip out about it all the time. It’s mind-blowing! For me, I’ve never gotten to a point where I felt, ‘Okay, I’ve made it, I’m number one!’ It’s an amazing feeling to hit number one, but it’s not that different a feeling from not being number one. It’s really about the journey—that’s where the joy comes. It’s not about the end result, because there isn’t really ever an end.

He’s like, ‘I’ve got to play you this. I have to play you this. And so he plays me this song, and it’s like magic. All it was was a beat and he was singing this melody on top and I just knew, that’s it. That night, after shooting all day, we went in the studio all night long, stayed up till four in the morning, came back, got on set and then didn’t finish.
