Gwen Stefani’s ex Tony Kanal of No Doubt together singing “Don’t Speak” at iHeartRadio Music Festival got fans ready for a night of superstars. The pair who are still part of No Doubt together, once dated long before Gavin Rossdale came along. The pair dated and broke it off long before No Doubt even became famous.
When the band originated, the couple were an item. The pair dated for seven years when Kanal reportedly called it quits. What did come out of their relationship was the hit song “Don’t Speak”. This song became the anthem for teenagers everywhere in the 1990s seeking a meaning behind their failed romances.
Now that ‘No Doubt’ is performing together again, is this romance a problem? No of course not. Both Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal claim that signing together after the breakup was extremely painful. According to the Guardian, Stefani even insists that signing through the painÂ—with her ex-boyfriend standing feet awayÂ—allowed her to become a better song writer. She states, “Before I was really passive, all I cared about was being in love with my boyfriend. I didn’t have any creative power, nothing.”
Now onstage together again, Gwen Stefani’s ex Tony Kanal someday realize he made a huge mistake!
