I, personally, was shocked when it was announced last night that Gwen Stefani had filed for divorce from Gavin Rossdale after 13 years of marriage, but people close to the couple say the split was “a long time coming.”
A few years ago, before Gwen got pregnant with Apollo (their youngest son, who’s now 17 months old), I wondered if there was trouble between the two. After being spotted with their kids everywhere, all of a sudden it was like Gavin just disappeared. He was never seen with the family. Then Gwen got pregnant and everything seemed to go back to normal for them. Perhaps that’s what sources are referring to when they say this split was “a long time coming.”
It only looks sudden, but everything was worked out months ago so paperwork could be filed and the marriage could be ended quickly and easily.
“Things were rocky before then but they tried to make the marriage work. But it just couldn’t. A lot of the feeling was gone.”
Well, that does happen with couples.
Sources also claim that Gwen was unhappy with Gavin’s touring schedule: he was on tour from December 2014 to March 2015, which he reportedly thought was hypocritical since she went on tour herself. Gwen also is said to think she thought Gavin was cheating on her.
However, both agree that he’s a good father, which is why neither one has a problem with the idea of joint custody for their three sons. I’m glad their marital problems aren’t spilling over into a custody dispute, at least!
