It was reported earlier this week that Gavin Rossdale cheated on Gwen Stefani with their nanny, Mindy Mann. Now, new reports are claiming that the British rock star's alleged gay lover is speaking out yet again amid the scandal.
Gavin Rossdale's alleged gay lover Marilyn, who was born Peter Robinson, has a lot to say. His claim to fame was the release of his debut album Despite Straight Lines in the 1980s. He told Radar Online that it was around the same time that he and Rossdale had an affair. Marilyn calls Rossdale the "love of his life" and says that the Bush front man has a horrible track record when it comes to relationships.
"It's about being true to yourself and not being a phony. It's about Gavin. All of this pretending it didn't happen and keeping it a secret, that's really old."
"If you betray who you are, you don't live a happy life. Just be honest and real and yourself."
"It's about him going to the altar and getting married and having a relationship still going with me."
"I'm getting the kind of the gist that people want me to be somehow to blame for the marriage split and that's not true. I love Gavin. I've always loved Gavin. I want him to be happy and Gwen to be happy and the kids to be happy."
"We were very close for a very long time. How do I say this without saying it – we were very, very close."
As for Gavin Rossdale, he has kept quiet about his personal life, including his sexuality. During his 2010 interview with Details magazine, he admitted that he experimented as a teen, but he kept coy about revealing his sexuality these days.
"You're learning about life. It's part of growing up. That's it. No more, no less."
Oddly enough, that timing does correlate to the photos of Gavin with his alleged gay lover. Photos of the rocker from when he was 17-years-old emerged back in November of 2010. One of the photos showed Gavin and Marilyn embracing each other as they wear matching white head-to-toe ensembles.
There's no doubt that the rumors about Gavin Rossdale's current affair with Mindy Mann won't die down anytime soon. While Robinson has accused of Rossdale of infidelity in their own relationship, he says he doesn't want to read into the reports about his cheating.
"What goes on in their house and in their marriage is between them. At the end of the day, it's speculation."
