Gavin Rossdale Addresses Romance Rumors with Marilyn

Gavin Rossdale has spoken out about a part of his past that he hasn’t addressed before.

The 44-year-old rocker chatted with Details about the rumors of his relationship with gender bending British pop singer Marilyn. Check it:

Last year, the cross-dressing pop singer Marilyn revealed that he was romantically involved with you in your teens – an assertion Boy George first made in 1995. Why haven’t you talked about those claims? I think at the outset there was a sort of fear—that was right at the beginning of Bush, and I didn’t want it to be part of it. It felt like a cheap shot, so I was like, “I’m not getting involved.” I’ve never wanted to appear closed about it. It’s not something I’ve talked about really because it’s always been in the glare of a tabloid world. It’s just one of those things: Move on. When you’re 17, Jesus Christ. I don’t think there’s anything strange about any form of – you’re learning about life. It’s a part of growing up. That’s it. No more, no less.

So it was just a one-time experimentation? Yeah. That was it. You have to know what you like, and I know what I like.
Gavin‘s interview appears in the November 2010 issue of Details, on newsstands Tuesday, October 19!

    Why ON EARTH are someone’s sexual preferences such a big deal to fuss over.
    I guess we still live in the middle ages.

    @NDoubt: he used to be really cute… think the drugs & family life aged him quite a bit….

    Let the man be. He’s not hurting anyone and obviously someone out there wants to HURT him. Leave him at peace with his family. He doesn’t owe any of us an explanation.

    Please, dude experimented something with 17 years old! There is nothing wrong with that.
    Now he is a grown man with a beautiful family, leave him alone .

    The band is ironically named. Bush is not what this guy wants.

    Nate Says:

    What a cop out. Yeah he doesn’t owe anyone anything but I’m disappointed with the way he handled that question finally after all them years.

    He was with Marilyn for SEVEN years yet he dismisses that part of his life as some silly teenage experiment? The least he could do is own his sexuality. I’d think 7 years would be enough to decide if you were Bisexual or Gay. Give me a break.

    I feel like this guy cheats on Gwen all the time and she just puts up with it.
    Way to dismiss a 7yr relationship as experimentation. Coward -___-

    Rossdale clearly knows what he likes. He has a loving wife and two beautiful children. What has Boy George and Marilyn got….. I can’t hear you…. exactly.

    Iffy Miffy Says:

    Considering the stigma that STILL follows gay men, and even more bi men and women, I see nothing strange about his answer. Yes, some people may think of him as a coward but heck, not all people have the same courage and ultimately it really is his business.

    ‘You met your wife, Gwen Stefani, while touring with No Doubt in 1995. Do you remember your first date?’

    “We drank a bunch of hurricanes and went around the French Quarter. We had our first kiss that night, just walking around, being careful to step over the puddles of pee. The next day we had that sort of cute, embarrassed, sober meet-up.”


    ‘How do you explain the paparazzi to Kingston now that he’s old enough to understand?’

    “We haven’t found the words to explain it. I’ll want to take my kid to the beach, and there’s six grown men chasing us. He’s running around in his underwear as every child should, and I have to go up to them and say, “Can you not photograph my son running around in his underwear?” The pictures show up anyway. He went through a really angry stage. He’d scream at them, “Get away! Don’t take a picture of my mom!” They’d say, “Wow, Kingston’s really moody.” You’re a f***ing grown man running after a 4-year-old! What do you want him to do?”

    Paparazzi are so gross.

    Gwen looks like a dude these days anyway.

    sillyme Says:

    Well, unfortunately, in this day of openness and gay pride, you’re not allowed to be private about your sex life anymore. If you’ve had any kind of homosexual experience, the gay community demands that it be made public.

    @….: you’re an idiot.

    boston61 Says:

    Gavin is now a closeted homosexual. There is no such thing as being bi (ask your therapist). And no Gavin, the truth is straight men NEVER have sex with other men unless they are in prison for life.
