Miranda Lambert spent some nights "crying and drinking whisky" when she split from Blake Shelton.
The 'House That Built Me' hitmaker announced she was divorcing the 'God Gave Me You' singer in July and whilst she praised her "amazing" ex-husband, she admits she hit a low after they went their separate ways.
She told Cosmopolitan magazine: "I had a great relationship with an amazing man, so I know what good is. I have a great launching pad for the future. I will never take that for granted.
"Some of that might mean nights on my porch crying, drinking whisky, and going, 'Man, this sucks right now.'"
Meanwhile, it was previously claimed the 32-year-old singer was not "surprised" to find out Blake has always been flirty with his new girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, but accepts their romance.
The source said: "She was not surprised to hear of the romance between Blake and Gwen. They were always pretty flirty. Miranda and Blake were on the rocks on and off and knew that this could always be a possibility.
"Blake is just a flirty kind of charmer. She has nothing against Gwen and thinks she is a very talented artist. Whomever Blake is with she wishes them the best.
"Miranda is at a point in her life where she is really focusing on herself and her music. This is a new chapter for her to create new relationships and really move on. Miranda has been going through many personal changes over the past few months, but it's all for the better."
