Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale Confirm They’re Divorcing

The couple are sadly splitting and the news has come as a big surprise. They only recently welcomed their third child, who is just 1-year-old  – Apollo. They also have Kingston and Zuma. The couple said in a statement:

“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. To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time.”

The couple married in 2002 (Gwen wore that now famous ombre red wedding dress, remember?). In an interview earlier this year, Gwen did sound a bit shaky about how everything was going with their relationship:

“We go through so much together – it’s a miracle that we could stay together this long. It’s good to have those days when we both do our own things. I think that’s what keeps relationships going, when both people can be themselves and have their own individuality.”

TMZ are reporting that Gwen asked for a divorce because she became convinced Gavin had been cheating, however she wants a joint custody agreement.
