Gwen Stefani ’embarrassed’ by Blake Shelton

Gwen Stefani admits she is sometimes « embarrassed » by her relationship with Blake Shelton but credits the country singer for getting her through her divorce.

Gwen Stefani feels « embarrassed » by Blake Shelton sometimes.

The ‘Used To Love You’ hitmaker – who split from husband Gavin Rossdale earlier this year – admits she feels « so exposed » at times because of her new relationship but is « grateful » for the 39-year-old singer.

Speaking on 106.1 WBLI, she said: « Everything changed so quickly like overnight. I’m so tongue-twisted right now – I don’t like talking about it.

« I am embarrassed about it sometimes because I feel so exposed but I am so grateful for that friendship that saved me through this year. It’s unbelievable what it takes to get through stuff. »

Meanwhile, the 46-year-old star – who has three sons, Kingston, nine, Zuma, seven, and Apollo, 20 months, with her ex-husband – previously admitted she is in a « phase of forgiveness » following the divorce.

She said: « When I wrote the song [‘Used To Love You’], I was sort of in a phase of forgiveness. In a way, I’m getting to this point now, and all the songs up to that point were like, ‘Rah, I’m like so upset and so crazy.’

« Everybody knows, pretty much, what happened to me. I got a divorce, which completely was not in the plan at all. For me, it purely wasn’t and [it was] a shock and horrible, a crazy explosion in my life. »
