Gwen Stefani's dealbreaker

Gwen Stefani nearly broke up with Blake Shelton over his dislike of rollercoasters.

The 'Used To Love You' hitmaker took her boyfriend to Disneyland not long after they started dating and quipped she nearly ended their relationship over his distaste for the fast rides.

She said: "I think he's quite miserable when he's not in the woods or like somewhere in camo. He really likes to be camouflaged ...

"I know that for me I just go anywhere, and I know I'm gonna get hounded for pictures or whatever. I don't mind, you know what I mean? For him, he's just not used to that, like I said. He's in the woods most of the time but, yeah, we went. It was crazy it was, like, a billion people there.

"He won't do the rollercoasters. That was literally, like, that was almost a deal breaker for me. I was like, 'I don't know.' He doesn't fit in anything. We did go on the Matterhorn, he did. But he barely fit inside the little thing. His knees were up like this."

And the 47-year-old singer admits she "felt so bad" for her boyfriend when a video of him eating sushi for the first time on another episode of the chat show went viral and caused him to be bombarded by fans.

Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, she added: "Of course everybody recognises him wherever he goes, but we walked into the sushi restaurant and literally the entire restaurant stood up and was like, 'Blake!'

"It was like the whole world had just watched it, and we walked in the room. I felt so bad. He really is a country boy. He does not like going out."
