Gwen Stefani describes her marriage breakdown as a "really good, juicy story".

Singer/mother/prodigy who taught us all how to spell B-A-N-A-N-A-S, Gwen Stefani, has admitted to the New York Times that the story behind her divorce to Gavin Rossdale is a very juice tale indeed.

“If I could, I would just tell you everything, and you would just be in shock. It’s a really good, juicy story,” she said.

Gwen and Gavin had been married for more than 13 years and have three sons together when news of their impending split broke news headlines. It was rumoured late last year that the divorce was due to Gavin’s salacious affair with the family’s nanny, Mindy Mann, who is now pregnant (not to Gavin though – now THAT would be a story).

All Gwen remembers of the time is the fallout that nearly killed her.

“I’m gonna die. I am dead, actually. How do I save myself? What am I going to do? How do I not go down like this?” she recalls.

She’s also have a hard time adjusting to joint custody of their three boys Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7 and Apollo, 20 months. She only gets to see them 50% of the time, which she describes as absolutely “unbelievable.”

Despite the heartache, she insists that it was music that truly saved her from a downward spiral. We’ve also got our suspicions her new love interest Blake Shelton might have had a hand in this new found happiness too.

Either way, he has inspired her heart enough to gift us with a new album, due out March 18.
