They fell for each other from the moment they met. Soon, they had to face the reality of him having a secret daughter, followed by his alleged infidelity with another celebrity. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were able to overcome it all and even had another baby, but they divorced soon after. Why? Because, after getting through all of this, Gavin threw everything away and got caught. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale met in 1995 when their bands toured together.
The “Bush” singer was so smitten he thought of a plan to hang out with Gwen. “I threw a party in New Orleans just to see her again,” the star told Details Magazine. “We had our first kiss that night. The next day we had that sort of cute, embarrassed, sober meet-up.” The pair started a relationship, which sparked a lot of talk among their fans. However, both musicians were used to dating other stars. Stefani had dated Tony Kanal, the bassist from her band “No Doubt” from 1987 to 1993.
When they broke up, the band almost did the same! Luckily, “No Doubt” stayed together, and the split eventually led to hits like “Don’t Speak”. Rossdale, reportedly, had an affair with English singer Marilyn and tried to keep it hidden. However, singer Boy George revealed the truth in 1995 when he published his autobiography. According to George, Gavin and Marilyn had a 5-year-long relationship!
At first, the musician denied the claims, saying that he and Marilyn were just good friends and that Boy George just thought everyone was gay. Later, he recognised he was involved with the singer while in his teens but brushed it off as “experimentation”. Meanwhile, Marilyn was much more affected by their breakup and confessed he hadn’t been able to kiss anyone since
The new wave artist told Intouch magazine, “Gavin and Gwen are perfect for each other, but he was the love of my life”. Luckily, this reveal about Rossdale’s past did not take a toll on his relationship with Stefani. The couple’s love lasted, and in 2002 Gavin proposed after getting permission from Gwen’s father.
