Can you believe that Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani have been together for ten years? That’s kind of amazing, in the celebrity world and the music world. Although there have been some scandals involving Gwen and Gavin, I always think of them as one of the stronger family units around. Of course, I always thought that about Will Smith & Jada too, and they’re probably dunzo. Anyway, over the years, Gwen has had to deal with certain stories about her husband that she may or may not have known about before the stories went public – stuff like Gavin’s “one night stand” (or full-on relationship) with a drag queen named Marilyn, his one night stand with a woman that led to his fathering Daisy Lowe, and his relationship with Courtney Love, which may have overlapped with the start of his relationship with Gwen. And given all of these stories, Gwen and Gavin’s marriage has suffered, and Star Mag claims they’re almost done:
Poor Gwen! Her husband’s dark past and infidelities have lead her to reach a breaking point in love, according to a new report in Star magazine.
Gwen Stefani, 42, and Gavin Rossdale, 46, have been in and out of couple’s therapy trying to repair their marriage, but a source tells the mag that divorce is “inevitable.” And Gwen’s brother, Eric Stefani, 44, also agrees that divorce is possible, according to the new report.
“He’s just not been honest with her about his past,” another source tells the mag.
Two years into the marriage Gwen was hit with Gavin’s first secret — that he had a daughter, Daisy Lowe, now 22, by his ex-girlfriend song-writer/designer Pearl Lowe. And then began the rumors about Gavin’s affairs. In 2009, 80s cross-dresser Peter Robinson — famously known as Marilyn — revealed he had had a short fling with Gavin, before he married Gwen. And in 2010, Gavin confirmed the affair in an interview with Details magazine claiming it was a one-time experimentation when he was 17-years-old.
“That was it. You have to know what you like, and I know what I like,” Gavin said in the Details interview.
Right after Marilyn spoke out, Courtney Love, 47, claimed on the Howard Stern show that she had an eight-month affair with Gavin while he was dating Gwen.
“You mean he was having sex with you while he was with her?” Howard asked.
”Everyone … yeah … and a few other people,” Courtney said to Howard. “We didn’t have a lot of pressure on each other, but we did like each other quite a bit.”
Yikes! With all of these secrets revealed way after the two had married, Gwen now fears what else he has hiding in the closet.
“Gwen often wonders what other secrets Gavin is hiding. It’s getting harder and harder for her to go through the motions with a man she sometimes feels like she doesn’t even know,” a source tells Star.
Gwen and Gavin married in 2002 after meeting in 1995 when their rock bands – No Doubt and Bush — were on tour together, before Gwen turned into a rock star in her own right. Aside from Gavin’s secrets, her newfound success has also caused tension between the two.
“When they got together, it was Gavin who had the big career,” the source tells the mag. But now that the tables have turned and Gwen is more famous than Gavin and that’s “been a really hard journey for him.”
For now, Gavin is preparing to go on tour with his band Bush while Gwen stays at home with their sons, Zuma, 3, and Kingston, 5.

What to say about this? I wouldn’t be upset or shocked if they split up, but it’s going to take more than a ham-fisted Star Magazine story to make me believe that Gavin and Gwen are going to throw away their ten-year marriage. Call me a romantic, but I think they’ve weathered their rough patches rather well, and I think they’ve still got some years left together.
