Did I miss the memo that 2015 would be the year that many long time celebrity marriages ended? Yuck, I hate reporting news like this.
Gwen Stefani has filed for divorce from Gavin Rossdale after 13 years of marriage.
According to TMZ, "Gwen is asking for joint custody of the couple's 3 kids -- 9-year-old Kingston, 6-year-old Zuma and 1-year-old Apollo.
Gavin, who's repped by Laura Wasser, filed his response at the same time, and he's also asking for joint custody. It's clear the petition and response were orchestrated to be filed simultaneously." So obviously it was a mutual decision or he knew it was coming.
Sources tell TMZ there is no prenup, so the 50/50 California community property laws kick in. 45-year-old Gwen is worth a reported $80 million, and 49-year-old Gavin's worth an estimated $35 million. Given the length of the marriage, that will probably all go into one pot before it's divided.
Gwen checked the box on the form to deny Gavin spousal support.
In a joint statement they said, "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."
There had been rumors not too long ago that they were going to marriage counseling. RIP Gwen and Gavin's marriage!
