Secret affairs, a love child, jealousy and more send the 10 year marriage into crisis?
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.
“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.”
Hopefully this will give Gwen enough breathing room to decide if she still wants to be married to Gavin. It sounds like he didn’t end up being the man she thought she was marrying 10 years ago.
