Gavin Rossdale Admits to Gay Fling with Cross-Dressing SingerGavin Rossdale is digging up his past to get back into music by reuniting with Bush, but other regrettable parts of his past have snuck up on him. In a revealing interview with DETAILS, Rossdale confirmed a year-old report that he had a one-time gay fling in his teens with a cross-dressing pop star named "Marilyn." As if he didn't have enough drama in his life being married to Gwen Stefani, he also talks about struggling to be a father to his newly-discovered adult daughter.

When asked about the report that he had an affair with a cross-dresser and why he hadn't talked about it, Rossdale was modestly blunt.

"I think at the outset there was a sort of fear -- that that right at the beginning of Bush, and I didn't want to be apart of it," Rossdale says. "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 the 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 part of growing up. That's it. No more, no less."

Rossdale was then asked if it was more than one time, and he said it was only once.

"Yeah. That was it," Rossdale says. "You have to know what you like, and I know what I like."
