Gwen Stefani pours her heart out in a new video for her song “Used to Love You.” She lets you stare in to her deep, brown eyes and feel her pain in a song widely interpreted to have been inspired by her breakup with husband Gavin Rossdale.
Stefani, 46, who stars on “The Voice,” has neither confirmed nor denied that Rossdale was the subject of her song.
She only says it was inspired by recent events in her life. Certainly one of the biggest events was the collapse of her marriage.
Stefani met Rossdale, a guitarist for the band Bush, while on tour together in 1995. Her band, No Doubt, and the Goo-Goo Dolls were opening for Bush.
They married in 2002, but the union was rocked by controversy from the outset. Two years into the marriage, Rossdale learned he had fathered a daughter from a previous relationship with model and designer Pearl Lowe.
Stefani was reportedly furious about the revelation, but stayed in the marriage. In December 2005, they announced that Stefani was expecting their first child together. She went on to have two more children.
In 2010, Rossdale admitted in a magazine interview what had long been rumored–he’d had a gay affair with cross-dressing singer Peter “Marilyn” Robinson.
Stefani took the news in stride, at the time, but the marriage broke up this past August. Robinson claimed that he was the reason.
So, she has a lot to feel sorry about.
