Having spent 15 years denying it, Gavin Rossdale has now admitted he experimented with cross-dressing singer Marilyn, aka Peter Robinson, when he was 17.
Rumours began when Boy George wrote about the affair in his 1995 autobiography and then last year, Marilyn himself spoke out claiming that Gavin, who is now married to Gwen Stefani, had been the love of his life.
The British frontman of the band Bush has always denied the allegations but in a interview with U.S. magazine Details, Rossdale has now confessed to the liaison.
Gavin said: "When you're 17, Jesus Christ, I don't think there's anything strange about any form of anything - you're learning about life. It's a part of growing up - that's it, no more, no less."
Gavin and No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani have been married since 2002 and have two sons together, four-year-old Kingston and two-year-old Zuma.
In 2004 and following a paternity test, Gavin was also revealed as the father to model Daisy Lowe, following a brief fling with her mum Pearl.
