Gwen Stefani doesn't have much to say about the end of her 13-year marriage to Gavin Rossdale and for very good reason.

"I don't feel like I have anything to be ashamed of," Stefani told Time magazine. "I've done nothing wrong. I don't feel like I have anything to protect about myself. But when you're a mother, you have to have some boundaries."

Gwen Stefani Says the True Story of Her Split With Gavin Rossdale Would Leave Us 'in Shock'

The 46-year-old singer hasn't been completely mum, however. She recently hinted to The New York Times that the real reason why the two split would leave people "in shock." Stefani added, "It's a really good, juicy story."

Blake Shelton's girlfriend said after splitting with Rossdale, 50, last August, she returned to her solo career and recorded her third solo album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like.

"It was really a life-saver record for me," said Stefani. "It wasn't until I had to go through the worst tragedy that it really opened up a channel for me to be like, 'God gave me a gift. I'm going to use it now. Because if I don't, I’m going to die.'"

The singer's faith has played a key role in helping her heal after the very painful end to her marriage.

"I've really been trying to exercise my spiritual side in the last year," Stefani explained. "I scraped myself off the floor and went into the studio and tried to somehow be alive again."
