Gavin Rossdale Calls Divorce From Gwen Stefani His Most ‘Embarrassing Moment’
Gavin Rossdale is opening up about his divorce from Gwen Stefani, telling The Guardian that its end was one of the most embarrassing moments in his life.
Indeed, that’s not all he said. Check out more of his responses below:
When were you happiest?
Last year, when I had all four kids – Daisy, Kingston, Zuma and Apollo – staying with me on my birthday. It was magical.
What is your greatest fear?
Prison: awful catering and the constant threat of violence.
What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
My ability to switch off and tune someone out without realising it, almost as a defense mechanism.
What is the trait you most deplore in others?
What was your most embarrassing moment?
The gross and lopsided spectre of the crumbling of my marriage.
Aside from a property, what’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought?
A picture: Cocky Patriot by Gilbert and George.
What is your most treasured possession?
My 1967 purple Jazzmaster guitar. I made my first record on it, and Joe Walsh from the Eagles played parts of Hotel California on it.
What do you most dislike about your appearance
I’ve got soccer player legs.
Who would play you in the film of your life?
An egotistical answer would be Timothée Chalamet.
What has been your biggest disappointment?
Sometimes it was disappointing not to have the fan base at home in the UK that we had elsewhere.
What makes you unhappy?
What is the worst thing anyone’s said to you?
“You lied to me”, when I did.
Which living person do you most despise, and why?
TV evangelists preying on poor people.
What is the worst job you’ve done?
Painting 11 identical dentists’ offices magnolia. It was Kafkaesque. By the time you are in office four, you are losing your mind.
How often do you have sex?
As often as I can.
In case you need a refresher, Gwen filed for divorce in 2015 after nearly 13 years of marriage, following rumors about Gavin’s alleged affair with the nanny to the couple’s three sons.
In a 2017 interview with The Sun’s Fabulous magazine, Gavin pointed out that the divorce was “completely opposite to what I wanted. But here we are. Apart from death, I think divorce is one of the hardest, most painful things to go through.”
“We had 20 years together and that in itself is pretty incredible,” he added in that interview. “It’s a lifetime. I still think she’s incredible. It was a lovely 20 years and we have three amazing children. There were a lot of positives, and with time they’ll become more and more obvious.”
We love you, Gavin. At least everything ended well.
