Gwen Stefani Reveals What Was Almost A ‘Deal Breaker’ For Her And Blake Shelton
Gwen Stefani said that she and Blake Shelton’s relationship was almost over after the country singer shared that he didn’t like rollercoasters.
During “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday, the 47-year-old singer shared how much she loved riding rollercoasters and that when she found out before the couple’s trip to Disneyland, Shelton had never rode one, she had to do some serious thinking.

“He won’t do the rollercoasters,” Stefani responded. “That was literally, like, almost a deal breaker for me. Yeah, I was like I don’t know.” (RELATED: Blake Shelton On Gwen Stefani: ‘This Is How My Life Turned Around’)
“Actually, though imagine he doesn’t fit into anything,” she added. “We did go on Matterhorn. He did that one, but he barely fit inside the little thing.”
“I was nervous because, for me I just go anywhere, I know I’m going to get hounded, but I don’t mind,” she continued. “But for him, he’s not used to that. Yeah, we went and it was crazy. It was like a billion people there.”
The singer also thanked the host for introducing her boyfriend to sushi on his show and told the story that happened later that night when they went out for some.
“So, that night he came home and I was like ‘God, I just watched your thing,’ it was so funny,” Stefani said. “We should go to sushi tonight. Of course everybody recognizes him wherever he goes, but we walked into the sushi restaurant and literally the entire restaurant stood up and was like, ‘Blake!'”
“It was like the whole world had just watched it, and we walked in the room,” she added.
On Valentines Day, Stefani shared a photo on Instagram of her and Shelton celebrating being together. The couple have been dating since they meet on “The Voice” as judges in 2015, following divorces from both their spouses.
