Courtney Love: I Slept with Gavin Rossdale
Courtney Love has claimed in an interview with Howard Stern on Sirius XM Radio that she had an eight-month affair with former Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale, who happens to be married to Gwen Stefani of No Doubt.
The 45-year-old widow of Kurt Cobain told Stern that she once thought of marrying Rossdale and spending her “rock star money” with him. Love also admitted that she had a great time with Rossdale, but had to let go of their relationship because of too much comparison between Gavin and Cobain. “Everyone gave me so much shit because Gavin sounded like a lot like Kurt.”
The relationship with Rossdale happened while the Bush singer was already married to Stefani, with whom he now has two sons. “He got good in bed… something happened, maybe Gwen taught him for all I know,” Love said.
Rossdale is no stranger to controversy regarding his personal life. In 1995, British singer Boy George claimed in his autobiography that Rossdale had an affair with openly gay Peter Robinson, also known as Marilyn. Then in 2004, paternity tests revealed that Rossdale was the father of singer Pearl Lowe’s daughter. Rossdale has yet to comment regarding Love’s claims.
