True Gwen Stefani DivorceGwen Stefani is an open book when it comes to her split from Gavin Rossdale. The singer is getting candid in a new interview with Harper's Bazaar in which she admits the end of her 14-year marriage was a true low point for her. "My dreams were shattered," she tells the publication "All I wanted my whole life was to have babies, be married, like what my parents have." But Stefani says her biggest challenge she faced during the whole ordeal is when she had to split her time between her three children, Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 2. "It was so insane because not only did my family break up, but then my kids are taken away like half the time, so that was really like, 'What?! What did I do?'" "Then I remember thinking, 'There’s gotta be a reason for this.' Of course you go through the 'Why me?' and feel sorry for yourself," she continues. "But then I was like, 'No, this happened to me already and I made something good out of it,' and that was Tragic Kingdom." And then touching on her relationship with Blake Shelton, Stefani reveals, "It was like being handed this gift of a friend who was going through the exact same thing at the exact same time," she says of her romance with Shelton, who also went through a public split from Miranda Lambert. "And then everything flipped. It went from horrible to, like, hopeful and like, 'Wow, God, you just don't know what's gonna happen next.'"
