In an interview with Country Weekly, Shelton had trouble explaining what happened between he and his ex-wife, but from what he said, it seemed like the musician was not sure about the marriage. According to him, the marriage was real, but he had no idea if it happened because they were good together or because of her looks. When the divorce was finalized, Kaynette revealed in a press interview that Shelton engaged in inappropriate marital conduct. Although Shelton has had his fair share of complicated love stories, he has started something beautiful again with Gwen Stefani.
