Gavin Rossdale has finally come out and spoke about a past hookup involving another man.
Last year, a rumor came out that Rossdale had an intimate encounter with the gender-bending pop star Marylin when the two were younger, and was the first ounce of possible truth to the claims Boy George made in 1995 that Gavin was in fact bi-sexual.
For the first time, Gavin is talking about the rumor, confirming it to Details Magazine:
Details: Last year, the cross-dressing pop singer Marilyn revealed that he was romantically involved with you in your teens—an assertion Boy George first made in 1995. Why haven’t you talked about those claims?
“I think at the outset there was a sort of fear—that was right at the beginning of Bush, and I didn’t want it to be part of it. It felt like a cheap shot, so I was like, “I’m not getting involved.” I’ve never wanted to appear closed about it. It’s not something I’ve talked about really because it’s always been in the glare of a tabloid world. It’s just one of those things: Move on. When you’re 17, Jesus Christ. I don’t think there’s anything strange about any form of—you’re learning about life. It’s a part of growing up. That’s it. No more, no less.”
Details: So it was just a one-time experimentation?
“Yeah. That was it. You have to know what you like, and I know what I like.”
We have a feeling that we would know what we liked after making two babies with Gwen Stefani too!
