Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale are one step closer to finalising their divorce.

Gavin Rossdale has agreed to divide assets in favour of Gwen Stefani rather than push for an equal split in their divorce settlement.

The No Doubt frontwoman announced she was splitting from the rocker in August (15) after 13 years of marriage, and asked for joint custody of their three sons Kingston, nine, Zuma, seven, and Apollo, two.

The former couple did not have a prenuptial agreement so Gavin was entitled to receive half of the assets they acquired during the marriage, in accordance with Californian law, but he has reportedly opted against taking money she earned through concert and record sales, according to

Gavin is also not asking for child support and they will split custody evenly, but the Bush frontman will look after the boys most often due to Gwen's busy schedule.

The settlement is complete and just needs a judge to approve it before their divorce will be officially finalised, according to the website.

The split inspired Gwen, 46, to write her new solo album This Is What the Truth Feels Like, and she recently told U.S. show Good Morning America that she was still reeling from the end of her marriage.

"It's still painful, I'm still looking at the pieces going, 'What is happening?,'" she said. "There's so many great things, but it's still super hard to, like, have your family break up. What do you do after that? It's like, 'Here we are, we're doing it.'

"I felt like I was so... I was embarrassed and I was like, 'Wow, I can't go down, this is not who I am, I am not gonna fail,'" she recalled. "I had to make something good out of it, so I tried to write, because I know that that was my gift, and I was like, 'I'm gonna do this, I'm gonna make this into music'... It feels like I'm supposed to be doing this right now and sharing my story."

She has since found love with country singer and fellow The Voice U.S. coach Blake Shelton.
