After 13 years together, the rocker couple calls it quits.

By late October, they will settle their divorce, with joint custody of their three children -- 9-year-old Kingston, 7-year-old Zuma, and 1-year-old Apollo -- though Gavin will have them more given Gwen's touring schedule.

In a statement to ET, the couple says: "While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment."

Gwen echoes these sentiments, saying The Voice has helped her through an otherwise sad summer.

"It's so amazing!" she tells ET. "Honestly, I've had so much fun so far, and it's so motivating. I think this is the funnest thing I've ever done in my whole life work-wise."
