How Much Did Gwen Stefani Lose In Her Divorce From Gavin Rossdale?

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were once one of music's golden couples. The pair met in 1995 when Stefani's band No Doubt opened for Rossdale's band Bush in London, per People. The couple hit it off and then proceeded to have a long-distance relationship until they had the time to come together face-to-face. The duo became a favorite pairing among music fans, and in 2002 they finally walked down the aisle.

Two years later, the couple's relationship was challenged when it was revealed that Rossdale fathered a child in 1989. However, they continued to move forward in life and started their own family together in 2006 when they welcomed their first son Kingston. Their second son, Zuma, followed in 2006 (via Hollywood Life).

In 2010, Stefani and Rossdale made headlines again when singer Courtney Love claimed that she had gotten intimate with the Bush frontman while he was dating Stefani. The pair seemed to work through the rumors yet again and had their third son, Apollo, in 2014. The following year, rumors that Rossdale carried on a years-long affair with the family's nanny surfaced, and in August 2015, the couple announced their divorce, per Us Weekly. Unfortunately for Stefani, the divorce ended with her forking over quite a bit of money to her ex-husband.

Gwen Stefani paid Gavin Rossdale $25 million in the divorce

According to People, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were married for 13 years at the time of their split. The couple didn't have a prenuptial agreement in place at the time of their marriage, which meant that Rossdale was legally entitled to be awarded half of all the money and assets the couple collected together. However, Rossdale didn't attempt to take half of the couple's fortune. He agreed to divide up their assets unequally in order to allow Stefani to have more. Meanwhile, the pair did seem to agree on sharing equal custody of their three sons.

Stefani reportedly gave Rossdale $25 million of her estimated $75 million net worth at the time, and she allegedly wasn't happy about having to share her fortune with her ex-husband. "Gwen's beyond furious that she has to pay him anything," a source told InTouch Weekly at the time, per Hollywood Life. "The end of their marriage never would have happened if Gavin hadn't [allegedly] cheated on her, so Gwen feels screwed over."

Rossdale apparently revealed that he was very supportive of Stefani during their marriage, even taking a bigger role in raising their children so that she could focus on her career. Following the end of their marriage, neither singer hesitated to move on with their lives.

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have both moved on following their divorce

Since his divorce, Gavin Rossdale has been linked to German actor Sophia Thomalla, Russian chef Natalie Golba, and model Gwen Singer (via Who's Dated Who). He also continues to play with his band, Bush, and co-parent his sons Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo with Gwen Stefani, per Screen Rant. For her part, Stefani met country singer Blake Shelton in 2014 while appearing on "The Voice." The following year, the pair bonded over their recent divorces and began dating.

In 2016, Shelton opened up about his special relationship with the No Doubt singer, revealing that she saved him during a difficult time in his life. "Gwen saved my life. Who else on earth could understand going through a high-profile divorce from another musician? You can't even imagine the similarities in our divorces," he told Billboard.

Stefani and Shelton fell madly in love and never looked back. The duo released a few duets together, and Shelton also made a habit of gushing over Stefani's sons. The pair dated for five years before they finally got engaged in October 2020. The couple officially tied the knot in July 2021 and have seemingly been living happily together ever since.
