Gavin Rossdale's Former Male Lover Speaks Out

They say when you become a celebrity all your old skeletons come out of the closet. Gavin Rossdale's lover from the 80's has held his silence about their 5 year love affair for over 20 years, but he's tired of keeping quiet.

According to In Touch, a British pop star that goes by the name of "Marilyn" claims he and Gavin dated for 5 years back in the 80's, and even claims, "He was the love of my life. We were together five years, but it felt like 40."

In 1995, singer Boy George, who is still good friends with Marilyn, wrote about Gavin and Marilyn's love affair in his autobiography, Take It Like A Man.

In the book, Boy George described Rossdale as "very flirtatious and ambitious. When I was writing Take It Like A Man, Bush were well on their way to rock stardom and he appeared at my house to persuade me not to include him and Marilyn.

"I agreed to leave some stuff out but I wasn't prepared to lie. I don't think Marilyn has ever really got over Gavin."

Responding to Boy George's claims, Gavin previously said: "I wasn't dating Marilyn. We were, and still are, good friends. George thinks everyone is gay."

Hmm... this is interesting. It's literally a he-said, he-said situation. Gavin seems to be happily married to Gwen Stefani, and the couple just welcomed their second son this year, so these claims are pretty shocking.

Who do you believe? Boy George and Marilyn, or Gavin? Tell us your theory.
