In the wake of the Gwen Stefani/Gavin Rossdale split, MarilynÂ has more to say!
Gavin’s former lover (described as a male â€œcross-dressing pop starâ€) gave several interviews describing his relationship with Gavin back in 2009. This happened years before Gavin even met Gwen but Marilyn claimed that he and Gavin had a five-year relationship and at first Gavin denied it and then admitted that he had a â€œone night thingâ€ with Marilyn. Marilyn reacted by once again going to the press and reasserting that no, it wasnâ€™t a one-night thing, it was a real relationship. Now, Marilyn has more to say:
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdaleâ€˜s split after 20 years together stunned fans, but not Rossdaleâ€™s gay lover! Cross-dressing pop star Marilyn told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview that the couple had struggled â€œfor yearsâ€ and Rossdale openly confessed their â€œissuesâ€ to his former boyfriend. According to Marilyn, Rossdale opened up about his marriage to Stefani in an hour-long intimate phone call shortly before they announced their split. But he says tensions were bubbling for much longer.
â€œIt really isnâ€™t that surprising,â€ Marilyn told Radar. â€œThis has been going on for years. Well done to them for trying so long!â€
The problem? Marilyn, born Peter Robinson, claims Rossdale has many â€œissuesâ€ surrounding his sexuality and the history of their affair. After a passionate gay relationship in the early 1980s, Rossdale dated women after finding fame. When Marilyn revealed their relationship in 2009, the Bush frontman denied the relationship, before admitting he had lied in 2010.
â€œHe called our relationship an experimentation, indiscretion of youth,â€ Marilyn sniffed. â€œOur experiment went on for five years! If you donâ€™t live in your own truth, whatever it may be, how can you be happy? Youâ€™re not at peace with yourself.â€
Marilyn also alleges that Rossdaleâ€™s wife Stefani was uncomfortable with the dirty details of his past becoming public.
â€œShe didnâ€™t want to know or acknowledge certain things about him,â€ he claims. â€œShe wanted to edit his past and he wanted to as well. But how do you go into a relationship and not be 100 percent honest? You canâ€™t have an ongoing stable relationship being untruthful or unaccepting. I just donâ€™t get it.â€
In addition to the story of the Marilyn affair, Rossdale and Stefaniâ€™s relationship was rocked by the revelation in 2004 that he had fathered a love child, Daisy Lowe, with ex-girlfriend Pearl Lowe. Stefani was reportedly devastated at the time.
â€œIf youâ€™re not honest, and especially if youâ€™re with someone who is extremely successful and in the public eye, itâ€™ll come out of the woodwork,â€ Marilyn explained. â€œAnd I think the fact that Gavin couldnâ€™t be upfront about certain things was the problem. I can imagine, if it were me [being blindsided by such revelations] I would go into over-snoop mode. I want to know where youâ€™re going, how long youâ€™re going, whoâ€™s the text from. I would be suspicious that the person wasnâ€™t being honest with me. I can imagine Gwen would have a similar problem.â€
Sounds like Gavin has a lot of skeletons in his closet- and maybe he’s gotta work through some of them. This makes me feel really badly for everyone involved, except maybe Marilyn. It’s like, c’mon- how much more do you have to say about it?
