Sheryl Crow talks about split from Armstrong.

To be apart from ex-fiance while she was battling breast cancer was difficult for . The singer spills all to Vanity Fair magazine in its August issue.

Crow and Armstrong announced their split in February after two years of dating and more than five months engagement. Time went by and 17 days later Crow was diagnosed with Stage I breast cancer. She first called her parents, before then contacted Armstrong who was on a solo road trip from Lake Tahoe, Calif., to Oregon.

"It was difficult," says Crow. "I know he wanted to be there. I would have loved for him to have swept in and carried me through."

Says the split was "devastating" for both of them, Crow tells the publication "It was difficult, you know. I do think about Lance everyday. And I think about his kids everyday."

The singer, on the other hand, denies speculation that Armstrong, who has three children from a previous marriage, didn't want to start another family, saying "It would be easy to say this is all about my wanting to get married and have kids but it was never that simple. It was much deeper than that."
