Gwen Stefani Files for Divorce to End 13-year Marriage
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have released a joint statement on Monday, August 3, 2015, which reads: “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. To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time.”
Stefani has cited “irreconcilable differences” in her petition, and is asking for joint custody of the couple’s three sons, Kingston – 9, Zuma – 6, and Apollo – 1, according to TMZ. Rossdale, who has hired top divorce lawyer Laura Wasser to represent him, has also filed his response. He is also asking for joint custody. Reports suggest there’s no prenuptial agreement involved and the couple is expected to split its assets.
