Gavin Rossdale banged a woman in the Playboy Mansion just before his wedding


I tend to think that the gossip around Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s divorce is pretty solid. Meaning… I think he was cheating on Gwen for a long time, possibly with men and women, and maybe even with their nanny. Nanny-banging is so trendy this year. I wonder what next year’s mistress trend will be? Nutritionist-banging, that’s my guess. Anyway, many of us believe that Gavin has always had a wandering eye. So it’s no surprise that In Touch did an interview with one of Gavin’s alleged other women. This lady claims she banged Gavin at the Playboy Mansion in 2002, just before he married Gwen.

In Touch magazine has exclusively learned that the 20-year relationship between Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale was in trouble before the couple even wed. In an exclusive interview, a woman says she had a steamy sexual encounter with the Bush frontman at a 2002 Playboy Mansion party when he was already engaged to Gwen — and he kept texting her even after his wedding.

“He was beautiful and charming,” the party girl, who wishes to remain anonymous because of her connection to Hollywood, exclusively reveals. “He was with Gwen, but that didn’t stop him from hooking up with me.”

“We spent a lot of time flirting,” the woman says. Eventually Gavin led her to one of the mansion’s Van rooms, which have padded floors where they started “fooling around.”

“[Gavin] said [he and Gwen] were having problems,” the woman tells In Touch. “I thought they were breaking up and that I had a chance.”

“I was head over heels in love with him,” she admits, adding that she was stunned when he wed Gwen later that year in London — and even more so when Gavin continued texting her for at least a month longer.

“I do feel bad for Gwen,” the woman says. “He’s just a cheater.”

[From In Touch Weekly]

I believe her story. I also believe that she might have even thought she had a “chance” with Gavin even though it was clearly just a Playboy Mansion bang. Seriously, does any long-term couple’s meet-cute start with “I met him at the Playboy Mansion and then he banged me in the grotto, then again in one of the Sex-With-Randoms Rooms”?? Ugh. Poor Gwen.

Here are some photos of Poor Gwen a few days ago. Cute outfit, right?

    Those pants are dragging her ass down. Do not like.

  2. paola says:

    I don’t see the benefit of leaking these kind of informations now. I can’t believe people would want to bring more pain to people who already are in distress with something that happened a life time ago.
    Surely they can’t milk that cow for long? Just let it go people from Gavin’s past! Let it go!

    • Loulou says:

      Honestly, people like that are the lowest of the low. There was no point to giving that story, she didn’t even identify herself so it’s not even for attention. Purely rubbing salt in the wound.

    • QQ says:

      This!! my entire reaction to this was : SO?? and???

    • Moneypenny says:

      I figure that this chick was thinking, “Yeah! I’ll let Gwen know just what a dog he is! Sisterhood!,” not even realizing this just hurts Gwen. I’m sure Gwen knows enough about his exploits and doesn’t really need confirmation. Idiot.

    • Katherine says:

      Exactly, thank you. People who do this are scum.

      • Petee says:

        I feel sorry for Gwen.You could tell she really loved Gavin.I think he did too with her in his own way.It must be hard when you are Mr.Stefani and sorting out your sexuality.I think Gwen knew all about his past and excepted it.They seemed happy for so long but she outshone him and I think that was hard for him to except.I have heard on Howard Stern a interview with Marilyn Mansion that he was at a party a few years ago at there home and Gavin hit on him so obviously he has been a cheater.It makes me sad because I thought these two could make it.

  3. applapoom says:

    She looks great.

    I am ashamed to say I googled Gavin and think he used to be superhot. She looks better than him now though.

  4. aims says:

    I believe this. It just reaffirms my belief that no matter how much one person wants bends over backwards and overly invests in a relationship. If both people aren’t willing to do the work, the relationship is doomed.

    • Pinky says:

      I’m not sure I believe it. We’re people really texting in 2002? Red flag.

      • Meow Mix says:

        Good point.

      • feebee says:

        Yes we were. The phones were just chunkier and it took forever to do it (press 2 three times for ‘c’)

      • Miss Melissa says:

        Ding, ding, ding Pinky. It was not as common amongst common folk back then. People still called.

      • BunnyBabe says:

        Hell yes people were texting. I got in major trouble for running up a bill for tons of texts because they were 10 cents each and my boyfriend lived far away, and that was in 2002. My parents freaked when they saw the total and promptly got me a MetroPCS phone (unlimited everything.) It had a camera for picture messaging too. Texting in 2002 is not a red flag for this story… Not for California folks in my experience.

      • Katherine says:

        There was texting in 2002, absolutely.

      • Lilo says:

        2002 was the height of my texting years. Hitting that damned 7 four times to get the s. Gnah! My joints are still aching.

      • K says:

        I was in college in those years, and everyone texted constantly.

  5. Ronda says:

    Again: The whole PR will focus on WOMEN coming forward talking about him cheating.

  6. leidub311 says:

    God, what a pig. Don’t these dudes get tired of being trash? I used to loooooooooove him so much as a teenager. Just destroyed all my good feelings toward him.

  7. Andrea says:

    Why bring this up now rather than years ago? Is this woman money hungry? I don’t know, if I banged a celebrity, I just don’t see myself selling a story. It just would make me look bad eh? But if true, clearly she must have been tolerant of the behavior until it overwhelmed her how many he banged on the side. Reports are they were in separate bedrooms past few months, telling no?

  8. Colleen says:

    Ugh, why now? I just mostly feel so sorry for those kids. No matter how much everyone tries to shelter them from this, they’re still going to hear and see so much more than they really ought to. I hope this woman and other others like her will just crawl back under the rocks whence they came.

  9. Dana M says:

    I love Gwen. I feel bad for her, but just like Jen G, Im sure she knew who she was marrying. I bet she though he would change or that she could “fix” him. He is/was very good looking and to some women, LOOKS are very important. “Issues” can be overlooked by these women as long as the man is smokin’ hot.

    I love her outfit. Something I would wear, but my jeans would not be that saggy in the butt. But the belt, blouse and heels, CHECK CHECK CHECK.

    • Andrea says:

      Love the blouse too!

      They both seem to be terribly insecure people who were enamoured and obsessed with their men. Better to not be that obviously into your man or worship him is the lesson here.

    • littlestar says:

      I always had the feeling that Gwen was almost unhealthily obsessed with Gavin.

      • Andrea says:

        I had that feeling too—no one should be put on a pedestal, they will ultimately fall off of it one day!

      • mimif says:

        Also worth noting, is she has repeatedly mentioned in interviews that she was completely immersed in her former relationship with Tony Kanal, to the point where she had zero identity.

      • Andrea says:

        UGH, these types of women are the WORST! I completely forgot about how immersed she was with him too. Maybe we will at least get good songs out of this, this go around?

      • Daria Morgendorffer says:

        @mimif, I mentioned the same in a post below. Gwen seems like she gets obsessive in relationships and her lyrics attest to that.

  10. Zigggy says:

    I just imagine taking a black light to one of those padded floor mansion rooms- *shudder*.

    • Tifygodess says:

      Pretty sure at this point the whole room would glow! No spots to be seen. Yikes!

    • missy says:

      I was thinking that exact same thing. Bring on the purell and a water hose.. ewwwwwww. THought she had a chance after he banged her in the Playboy Mansion? That is oxymoronic. Or at least it sounds it.

    • Dee says:

      Haha – gross!!

  11. Tash says:

    Every time I see photos of her, all I think about is her poor bleached, damaged hair. Not good :-(

    • Granger says:

      Yeah, I’m not a fan of her hair, and I’m kind of over her ridiculous make-up, too. I know bright red lips are her trademark but I think they’re starting to look clownish.

  12. Penelope says:

    She always seemed more into him than the other way around. What a douche he turned out to be. Good riddance and Gwen will be just fine.

    Their oldest son is gorgeous. He’s going to be a super-handsome man.

  13. Carey says:

    Am I the only person who thinks her hair and makeup are terribly dated? I know she’s a style icon and I do like some of her outfits (the shirt and glasses in these pics are super cute) but in general she seems stuck in rut.

  14. MsMercury says:

    I believe this story but I swear way back when, there were lots of these kinds of stories about Gavin. Gwen had to have known who she was marrying, or in extreme denial. Just to be clear I believe this story and all the others. I still wonder what was the final straw for her?

    • Andrea says:

      I wonder also. I think the nanny if it is true although it did sound she was paranoid about the nanny who moved back east and the nanny hasn’t sold her story. Methinks she was paranoid from all the other cheating and finally was at the end of her rope.

    • (Original, not CDAN) Violet says:

      Agreed. I find it’s hard to feel sorry for Gwen, when she knew from day one that Gavin was a player and unlikely to ever be faithful. Plus there was ample evidence that Gavin wasn’t a particularly nice person (after all, look how he denied his daughter for all those years) and yet Gwen not only stuck by him, but chose to have three children with Gavin.

      I don’t think there was a last straw, at least not for Gwen. I get the sense that she doesn’t want this divorce, that Gavin is the one pushing for it but is willing for Gwen to save face by pretending she’s the one pulling the plug.

      • Petee says:

        If you go to the Blind Item the nanny story is a cover up.The last straw was he had a full on relationship with a male musician.I am still trying to figure it who it is.

      • (Original, not CDAN) Violet says:


        The blind item about the male musician doesn’t surprise me, but I doubt that this is the first male lover he’s had during his marriage so I don’t think think that’s what’s behind the divorce.

        If it’s an old blind, then the male lover is a guy named Marilyn. The affair happened before Gavin married Gwen, but didn’t come to light until Boy George mentioned it in his memoirs in the mid-90s, by which time Gavin and Gwen were involved. Gavin initially completely denied everything, before finally admitting to a brief experimental fling, while Marilyn says they were in a relationship for five years. I tend to believe Marilyn.

    • Susan says:

      Agreed. She had to have known to some extent. Handsome lead singer of a band? In the first post on their divorce I already commented that Gavin basically cheated on Gwen with my friend too, right before they were married. I think my friend was lying to me a little about her involvement with him because my friend was married to my other good friend, but basically my (female) friend was at their concert, Gavin had his people go down to her and get her invited backstage (my friend was super hot btw), and he made the moves on her. She claims they just fooled around a little and didn’t do the deed. But again, I caught her lying about cheating on her now ex-husband in other circumstances, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the deed was done.

      • Petee says:

        Umm I don’t think he went back to Marilyn.I think she just thought it was part of his past and it was just over.Who this new person is will eventually come out,I feel sorry for there children.The oldest one has to hear and see things on the internent and other kids.

  15. Grace says:

    Isn’t this ancient history? Why is this woman talking about it now? *shaking head*

    • Andrea says:

      $$$$ Is the only reason I can think of. As I said above, it takes a special someone to brag you had a one night stand with a celeb; I personally wouldn’t do it to the media if I did such things. It just looks sleazy IMO.

  16. caran says:

    I think Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweet met his wife at the Playboy mansion

  17. j.eyre says:

    In California, the Nutritionist banging window is closing due to the Paleo Diet. I hear the new bang being forecasted is the Acupuncturist. However, their is also a movement to bring back the Hairdresser banging of the 70s, retro being very popular in banging these days.

    • mimif says:

      That made me lol because my friend’s (highly acclaimed) acupuncturist just got busted banging his very young office assistant.

      • j.eyre says:

        See! I told you – it will be all over the tabloids by December. I swear, this is how George and Barbara Bush are going to go down: he will need some treatments on his neck after one of his airplane jumps, she’ll question the sent of mugwort between his toes and it will all unravel from there.

  18. MSat says:

    Off topic but Kingston is getting so big! He is my favorite celeb kid.

  19. Pondering thoughts says:

    Rossdale looks like a serial consistant cheater through these revelations. Not saying he is, though.

  20. Daria Morgendorffer says:

    Love Gwen, but I think her lyrics serve as a great testament to her having poor taste in relationships and sticking around when she knows things aren’t working. The song “Simple Kind of Life” is all about her trying to stay in a relationship because she was obsessed with the guy and wanted a family. She was in a long term relationship with the bassist from No Doubt and almost all of the songs on albums “Tragic Kingdom” from 1995 and “Return of Saturn” released in 2000, are breakup songs about that relationship. She continued to write breakup songs about that relationship even in 2005. This dude dumped her 10 years before that. It’s really excessive that she was still needing to find a creative outlet for her feelings a DECADE after the fact.

    I believe she knew Gavin wasn’t a good choice, but she’s obviously got issues with letting go and moving on when she should.

    • emily says:

      Actually Return of Saturn is almost entirely about the first few years of her relationship with Gavin, not Tony. And the relationship songs on Gwen’s solo albums are also about Gavin, with the exception of ‘Cool’ which is about her and Tony’s relationship (from their break-up to present day & how they’ve been able to remain friends). So really she was not obsessing over her relationship with Tony past 1995 when TK was released.

      • Daria Morgendorffer says:

        Thanks for the correction! I was thinking of “Cool” when mentioning the song from 2005, and I still find it odd that she found it necessary to write a song about her ex after being married to another man and broken up for a decade.

      • Andrea says:

        I found this odd too—honestly is it possible she never got over her bandmate and clung to Gavin for dear life?

      • Petee says:

        Return of Saturn was all about Gavin and not Tony.Also the whole Courtney Love thing.On Bushes album Science Of Things he thanks Gwen and Courtney Love.Courtney makes it sound like it was a huge thing but she wanted a real relationship with him and he didn’t.He got back with Gwen.

  21. TopCat says:

    I am always surprised that famous women (and some famous men) choose such unsatisfactory characters as husbands and to father their children. Gavin has a long history of being bisexual (possibly gay) and for being relatively untrustworthy, and yet Gwen happily married him. It always shocks me when famous women do this. It doesn’t matter how slim you look, how well made up you are and how nice you keep your hair; if your man has been a pig in his past, he will likely be one in your future. It’s just something innate in a person that they can potentially bottle up for some time, but will usually rear its ugly head. That said, I wouldn’t assume these rumors are true. I think the media took note of how much press Affleck/Garner are getting and decided to turn the beam onto Stefani and Rossdale.

    • Ronda says:

      almost all famous people are narcissistic and insecure. they need hot partners to feel good about themselves, also to get more press because hotter partners generate more interest from the media and fans. Gwen even talked about how she never thought she could be with such a hot man, thats his identity in her eyes, his looks. And that quote also reveals that she put him on a pedestal based on his attractinveness and though he was out of her league.

      another point is that a shady character is more likely to want to date someone famous. down to earth people usually understand that dating someone famous is basically signing up for heartbreak and worldwide humiliation. take Anne Hathaway as an example, her ex. a regular, trustworthy dude wouldnt have been interest in all the hassle that comes with dating a famous person, a con man sees opportunity. Or the Affleck Nanny who obviously relishes in the attention, no matter how negative it is. Women who dont want to be plastered all over the papers are way less likely to be the other woman for a man like Affleck.

      • Daria Morgendorffer says:

        @Ronda +1. “Normal” people don’t want the whole world to love them the way that the majority of celebs do…the rest of us are content with love from family and friends while celebrities want love from the world and that approval. If being an actor was truly about love of thespianism, I believe more actors and actresses would be living low key lifestyles and working on broadway/off broadway shows. This is also why celebrities are always so scandalous; that incessant need for attention and love usually comes with other deep rooted issues.

      • Andrea says:

        It is abundantly clear that Stefani has deep-rooted self esteem issues. This is why she was with someone whom she thought was the best catch, but she probably always felt inferior to him as well.

  22. Ferdinand says:

    “He was with Gwen, but that didn’t stop him from hooking up with me.”
    Well, it didn’t stop you either.

    I rest my case your honor.

  23. fippa says:

    I sniff a rat. Texting didn’t really exist in 2002.

    • Camilla L-M says:

      I started texting with my first cell phone back in ’99 (aeons ago!!) so I think it’s possible Gavin texted this girl. I believe the story but don’t get the big deal, it was 13 yrs ago and I am sure Gwen knew already.

    • Katherine says:

      lol I was texting in 2001 when I got my first cell phone.

  24. Mandy says:

    Sucks to know you can be as beautiful as Gwen and still get cheated on.

    • Grace says:

      Cheaters are gonna cheat. It really has nothing to do with the partner’s looks.

    • Ronda says:

      Cheating is never about the victim of it. Sandra Bullock got cheated on, George Clooney was cheated on, JLo was cheated on, Robert Pattinson was cheated on. Looks matter to most people a lot when it comes to choosing a partner but they are not making you immune to being betrayed because its not about that. Its all about the cheater being a dick.

  25. puzzled says:

    who cares? what i want to know is when did Gwen downgrade to a minivan? seriously, if she’s not in her porsche or lexus she would be in her Range Rover (if she has the kids), but a minivan???? is she anticipating having to pay off mr. greasy pony tail?

  26. Miss Melissa says:

    Gavin looks old now.

    Go get yours Gwen.

  27. Jas says:

    She’s smart enough to have known who she was marrying, there have been stories and kiss n tells for years so they probably had a somewhat open relationship otherwise she would have divorced him years ago.

    Most people do practice or at least pretend to practice monogamy within their marriages but the cultural expectation is not everybody’s ideal. I don’t think we can assume some kind of victim hood for her.

  28. SavageGrace says:

    It’s been rumored for YEARS that Gavin is bi and they have/had an open marriage. IDK if he was restricted to just men or even if Gwen was hooking up with others but that’s the long-standing rumor anyway…

  29. Nibbi says:

    her shoes = sickkkkkkk. where can i get them

  30. Alyce says:

    She looks great and I hope she comes out of the divorce feeling better than she has in years!

  31. nemo says:

    I’m still surprised they lasted this long. I can remember cheating rumors in the 90′s, before they got married. if someone’s cheating pretty much from the start – that’s not a good sign. :P

  32. lis says:

    she is an icon
    he was hot for ten minutes in the nineties.
    that is all.

  33. Betsy says:

    Cheating when you’re engaged? Ewwwww….

  34. Chantal says:

    I thought it was only Bill Crosby that did the did in the playboy mansion? LOL.
    I think Gwen loves very deeply and gives her all. Maybe her all is too much and suffocating. If it s true, this loser does not deserve her. You at better off Gwen! Obviously I don’t know her I am taking the vibes through some of songs she written.

    • Petee says:

      I don’t think she is suffocating.She has her own career and projects on the side.I just think she loves too deeply.Her birthday is the day before mine.I was in sort of the same situation she is in now.It has taken decades and a lot of therapy to get over it.I think Gavin was the insecure one.He was the star when they met and then she became huge.Her bandmates resented it too.She has written some of the best brokenhearted songs ever.I expect a great No Doubt album now.

  35. lamgirls3 says:

    She is beautiful, stylish and is at the top of her game. He is a cheater and a has-been. Just listen to her song “4 in the morning”. It’s absolutely about Gavin.

  36. Dee says:

    That headline with that header photo with the fingers…..ew!!

  37. EN says:

    Gavin was really beautiful, now he is just gross. His looks now reflect who he is, serves him right.

  38. emma says:

    Maybe she finally divorced him because she got an STD test…. seriously. Or caught something.

  39. coco says:

    Banged a woman just before his wedding and banged many men after his wedding!
