Gwen Stefani’s ex Gavin Rossdale calls their ‘crumbling’ marriage his ‘most embarrassing moment’ five years after split – The Sun
GWEN Stefani’s ex Gavin Rossdale called their 'crumbling' marriage his 'most embarrassing moment' five years after they split.
The couple went their separate ways in 2015 after it was rumored that the British rocker had an affair with the family's nanny.
Gavin, 54, sat down with The Guardian for a Q&A style interview on Saturday.
When asked what his most embarrassing moment was, the father of four responded: "The gross and lopsided spectre of the crumbling of my marriage."
He also claimed that the last time he was the happiest was "last year, when I had all four kids – Daisy, Kingston, Zuma and Apollo – staying with me on my birthday."
"It was magical," he reminisced.
Gavin and Gwen's marriage "crumbled" when reports started to surface that the rocker had allegedly had an affair with his children's nanny.
Despite neither singer admitting what exactly made them file for divorce, Gwen, 50, told Cosmpolitan back in 2016: "Nobody except for my parents, the people involved, and whoever they told [knows the specifics about what happened with Gavin].
"Nobody would believe it if I could really say what happened," she added.
"I went through months and months of torture."
However, she did tell fans to listen closely to her music if they wanted some clues.
"All you have to do is listen to every single song I've ever written, and it's all there.
"It's an ongoing theme that I've had for a long time," she said.
Gavin, on the other hand, admitted in an interview that he didn't want to get divorced from The Voice judge.
"[Divorce] was completely opposite to what I wanted. Really not…but here we are," he said in an interview.
"Apart from death, I think divorce is one of the hardest, most painful things to go through."
"I know we all wish that, but we can’t, so I have to deal with reality. You can’t not have regrets and be human at the same time.
"We had 20 years together and that in itself is pretty incredible. It’s a lifetime. I still think she’s incredible,” he added.
The lead singer of No Doubt was married to Gavin Rossdale from 2002 to 2016.
They share three children, Kingston, 14, Zuma, 11, and Apollo, 6.
However, Gwen was quickly able to move on past her heartbreak and she began dating Blake Shelton, 44, in 2015.
The two are set to marry this summer as they are "keen to make it happen as soon as possible" but with the necessary precautions amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The couple plans to go "all out" for their wedding, but the source further explained that "it won’t be the end of the world if they have to move things back till the fall."
Though the couple never got engaged officially, they plan to have two separate wedding ceremonies – one in Los Angeles and another in Blake's Oklahoma ranch.
"Oklahoma gives the couple more privacy and the possibilities are endless for a wedding reception people will talk about for years," a second source revealed.
Sources had previously revealed that Gwen can't bear to have a wedding over Zoom and wants their family and close friends to join them.
"COVID-19 has turned their world upside down, as it has with so many families," the source revealed.
"Gwen knows she is blessed and wants to have the wedding as soon as social distancing guidelines are lifted."
The source added: "Gwen wants to have a ceremony and reception with their family and friends.
"She didn’t wait this long to get married with family watching on Zoom."
Just last year, it was reported the Make Me Love You singer had begun the process for annulling her marriage to Gavin Rossdale in the Catholic church.
Insiders noted: “Religion has always been extremely important to her.”
She had been “committed to getting the annulment, no matter how long it took.”
But since the pandemic, Gwen has reevaluated these priorities and wants to move forward with marrying Blake, whom she's been dating since late 2015.
Sources shared: “It has made her realize that waiting for the annulment at this point is just futile because it could take years for the church tribunal to issue the decision.”
