Attention: this is not a drill! The original ’90s rock couple Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale are getting divorced after 13 years of marriage! :( :( :( Gwen apparently filed the documents this week, with Gavin’s coming soon after – likely organized to happen this way. Both are seeking joint custody of their three kids, 9-year-old Kingston, 6-year-old Zuma and 1-year-old Apollo, and they didn’t have a pre-nup in place.
Sources tell TMZ there is no prenup, so the 50/50 California community property laws kick in. 45-year-old Gwen is worth a reported $80 million, and 49-year-old Gavin’s worth an estimated $35 million. Given the length of the marriage, that will probably all go into one pot before it’s divided.
Gwen checked the box on the form to deny Gavin spousal support.
In a joint statement they said, “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.”
As for what happened to end this beautiful union, well, apparently it’s been a “long time coming” and it’s all down to the fact that Gwen thinks Gavin has been cheating.
Also from TMZ:
We’re told Gwen and Gavin have not gotten along for some time. As one source put it, the split was “a long time coming.”
We’re told Gwen complained about Gavin being away from home too much, touring with his band Bush from December 2014 through March 2015. One source says Gwen put pressure on him to stop touring and stay home. For his part, he felt it she was hypocritical because she was on the road too.
First of all… Bush is still touring? Since when? And where? And who is going to see them? So many questions.
Either way, this is sad as hell! I thought these two were forever! My ’90s dreams are crushed!
