“This has been such a long time coming. Nobody is shocked,” one friend dishes. “Gwen has been sick of Gavin’s bullshit for a very long time, and she finally just decided enough is enough.
“Apollo was Gwen’s last ditch attempt to save their marriage, but it just wasn’t enough. Gavin has been checked out for ages, and has a real roving eye. In the end Gwen was just through with him…..she deserves so much more—she’s beautiful and smart and sweet, she should be with someone who appreciates how awesome she is, not someone who just wants to fuck around on her all the time.”
Stefani and Rossdale were married for 13 years and have three sons together—Kingston, 9, Zuma, 6, and Apollo, 1.
TMZ reports that they had no prenup, so the 50/50 California community property laws will apply. Gwen, 45, is worth a reported $80 million and Gavin, 49, $35 million.
Both are requesting joint custody and Stefani has requested she not be required to pay Rossdale spousal support.
The couple released a joint statement Monday:
While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment.
