If only Gavin Rossdale could turn back time. One might think he would go back to the moment in which his hair whispered “Put more Frost n’ Tip on me, Gavin!” or the time his penis whispered “Put me inside the nanny, Gavin!” But if you ask Gavin, he’d like to go back to a couple years ago and try to convince Gwen Stefani to not file for divorce.
Gwen and Gavin were married for 13 years and have three kids, but that train fell off the rails after she finally had enough after allegedly catching him cheating. Gavin spoke about his split from Gwen to Fabulous magazine (via People) and says that he never wanted to get divorced.
“[Divorce] was completely opposite to what I wanted. Really not…” he sighs and stares at the floor. “But here we are. Apart from death, I think divorce is one of the hardest, most painful things to go through.”
As for if he’s ready to start dating after being single for 18 months, Gavin says: “I’ve so much going on, that’s not a factor right now.” Gwen Stefani, meanwhile, is reportedly tasting wedding cakes and picking out table linens.
But back to Gavin not wanting that divorce. He says divorce is the opposite of what he wanted, which would mean he wanted to stay married. Gwen has hinted that the reasons for their split are soap opera-levels of juicy, so what the hell did he think was going to happen? Gwen probably chose divorce as a cost-saving measure. She probably knew that they would go broke spending years in marriage counseling. Every session would end with a dramatic cliffhanger and a popcorn-eating therapist would be like “Oh my god, this is so good, you’ve got to come back next week.”
