Gwen Stefani says it is hurting her that she will take a break from “The Voice” and said she will miss fellow coaches Adam Levine, Pharrell Williams and Blake Shelton.

“Why can’t we have a fifth coach?”

The couple only revealed they were dating last month as Stefani gets over her divorce from Gavin Rossdale.

The former No Doubt singer revealed she plans on releasing a new record and will “do some shows,” hinting at a possible tour.

Stefani will leave the hit NBC show at the end of this season.

But Stefani, 46, refused to say who she would miss most from the panel, which also features Pharrell Williams and Adam Levine.

She explained she would miss what the four coaches have as a whole, saying “it’s the combination, it’s the chemistry.”

Gwen also noted another aspect of “The Voice” she will miss, the opportunity to show off her fashion sense, of course.

“I’m already so devastated that I only have three more outfits to wear — and that I’m not gonna be around these guys. It’s hurting me,” she added.

In Stefani’s place, Christina Aguilera will be returning to the coaches’ panel for Season 10.
