Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale divorcing after nearly 13 years of marriage
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale used to be together, every day together. Always.
But not anymore.
After nearly 13 years of marriage, the No Doubt frontwoman and the Bush rocker are divorcing, the couple announced in a joint statement to Access Hollywood.
“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,” they said. “To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time.”
The L.A.M.B. designer, 45, and the English guitarist, 49, wed in 2002 after six years of dating and have three sons together: Kingston, 9; Zuma, 6; and Apollo, 1. They were due to celebrate their 13th anniversary in September.
TMZ reported late Monday that “The Voice” coach had already filed her divorce petition, citing “irreconcilable differences, and that Rossdale had filed his similar response at the same time.
The musicians appear to be on the same page, both seeking joint custody of their sons. She also checked the box denying Rossdale spousal support, the site said. (Rossdale has a daughter, model Daisy Lowe, 24, from a previous relationship.)
The couple reportedly had no prenuptial agreement, which means they’d likely split their community property evenly under California law.
