“I remember at that time we were just starting to see each other and we were both going through horrible breakups, divorces, horrible in that it was just sad,” Blake said. “And there were times where Gwen and I would be like, ‘Are we rebounding here? Is that what we’re doing? Because this makes no sense.”
The couple discussed their relationship. Blake explained that they were “just getting over our crap with each other.” He quickly realized that the No Doubt singer was more than just a rebound or crush. He fell madly in love with her.

“I always just feel like, hey, look, if I go somewhere, then it must mean that I’m ready to high-five some people when I get out there … It took away the public side of my life and pushed me into it,” Blake explained. “But you know what, I’m weird anyway. I live out in the middle of nowhere in Oklahoma. And I mean, I am in L.A. half the time, but I’m pretty much a slug here.”
Blake then added, “I live off of Gwen here and I just hide in the house so I got it pretty good.” He then gushed about the singer, adding that he’s “still not really over that hump” of collaborating with her.
