When Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s marriage bit the dust a little over eight months ago, it was revealed that they didn’t have a prenup. Eight months was technically more than enough time for Gwen to track down the shadiest divorce lawyers a famous rich person could buy and plot a way to keep as much of the cash she made during their 13-year-long marriage. But she didn’t have to do that. TMZ says Gwen and Gavin have finally settled their divorce, and Gavin is walking away with far less than he’s entitled to.
A few months after they split, a source told TMZ that Gavin was planning on playing nice and wouldn’t be sucking her bank account dry. Or at least as dry as a 50/50 split would get him. Gavin could have taken half of Gwen’s shit, but sources tell TMZ he nodded his head “yes” to far less than that. They’ve agreed on a lopsided split of their properties, with Gwen getting the larger share. Gavin didn’t push for a settlement check either. TMZ doesn’t say whether or not he got any money from Gwen as a parting gift, but they do know he isn’t currently diving into a pool of coins, Scrooge McDuck-style.
They also agreed to split custody of their three children, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo, with Gavin getting just a tiny bit more time with them because of Gwen’s touring schedule. However, Gavin didn’t ask for any child support, and he won’t be getting any. Although I’m sure Gwen will still kick in a couple hundred dollars here and there for hair bleaching and fedoras.
This might be one of the more reasonable famous people splits in the history of famous people splits. If the Grinch moved from Whoville to Beverly Hills and focused his attention from Christmas to celebrity divorce settlements, this would be the part where he turns to a confused Max (who is now a blonde Botoxed poodle) and asks: “No screaming? No shouting? No social media snapping? How can two famous people get divorced without slapping?”
