Gwen Stefani 'embarrassed' by Blake Shelton

Gwen Stefani 'embarrassed' by Blake Shelton

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."
