Gwen Stefani tackles Gavin Rossdale split on new ballad ‘Used To Love You’ – watch

No Doubt singer split from husband of 13 years in August

Gwen Stefani debuted new solo ballad ‘Used To Love You’ during a gig in New York last night.

The No Doubt singer was performing at Hammerstein Ballroom as part of MasterCard’s Priceless Surprises campaign when she treated fans to a new track. The lyrics appear to document a break-up and include the lines: “Never thought this would happen/ I’ve let it sink in/ You’re gone,”

Earlier this year Stefani filed for divorce from husband and Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale. The No Doubt singer had been married to Rossdale for 13 years, wedding in 2002 after the pair met in 1995 when Stefani’s band opened for Bush at one of their concerts.


Stefani filed her petition for divorce on August 3, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason behind their split. The pair have three children together (Zuma, Kingston and Apollo) and are seeking joint custody.

Earlier this year, Stefani took out a three-year restraining order against an allegedly obsessed fan. The individual, Richard Portnoy, is accused of threatening to kill himself because he found pictures of the singer tripping over upsetting. He also showed up at her acupuncturist’s office so he could catch her walking inside.

Meanwhile, Eminem praised Stefani after the pair collaborated on a new song, despite once writing a song asking her to “pee pee” on him.

The pair recently worked together on new collaboration ‘Kings Never Die’, whichappears on the soundtrack to boxing film Southpaw.
