Gwen Stefani has broken her silence over her new relationship with country singer Blake Shelton.
The Voice mentor gushed over Blake, calling him ‘rad’ in her first interview since confirming their romance.
“He's a pretty rad guy, I have to say that,” she told a Dallas-based radio station.
Talking about her split from husband Gavin Rossdale, which was announced in August, she continued: “There has been loads of people that have helped me with this tragedy. There's definitely key people that have pointed me into the right direction. Blake really helped me.”
Gwen filed for divorce from Bush frontman Gavin in August after 13 years of marriage.
The 46-year-old star, who has sons Kingston, nine, and Zuma, seven, and 20-month-old son, Apollo, insisted she tried to keep her new relationship private.
Asked about going public with their romance, she hit back: “We didn’t! Like, somebody did. That's what's so crazy like, who announces that? Why would I do that?”
