It is upsetting to read news of couples filing for divorce, especially if we thought those couples would last. A couple of weeks ago, we were shaken to learn about Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s divorce news. The showbiz world is still trying to recover from the shock of that news, and now, we have another Hollywood couple” filing for divorce!

On Monday, Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani announced that they are separating.

Gavin and Gwen are prominent figures in the music industry; where both of them are lead vocalists in their respective bands. Gavin is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the British rock band Bush while Gwen is the lead singer for the American band No Doubt.

Tabloids repeatedly reported or asked the couple if there is any truth to the persistent split rumors surrounding the couple the past months, to which the famous couple denied.

Last year, Gavin Rossdale slammed split rumors in the tabloids. It seemed that speculations started when tabloid reporters observed the couple spending a lot of time apart. Just like when Gwen shared a photo of a “mini vacation” with her sons, Gavin was not in any of the photos from that vacation. Gavin later on logged in to his account Instagram to show he was in London at that time.

Another instance when Gavin slammed separation gossips was during the premiere of The Bling Ring way back in 2013.
