Gavin Rossdale: Coparenting with Gwen Stefani amid quarantine is a ‘dilemma’
Gavin Rossdale opened up about the trials and tribulations of having to coparent children of divorce amid coronavirus.
The “Love Remains the Same” rocker, 54, shares three sons with ex-wife Gwen Stefani: Kingston, 13, Zuma, 11 and Apollo, 6.
The kids have been traveling back and forth between Los Angeles, where Rossdale lives, and Oklahoma, where they’ve been quarantining with their mom and her boyfriend, country singer Blake Shelton.
“I did the first two weeks with them, then they went to Oklahoma,” Rossdale said on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation.”
“I think it’s ok for now,” he continued, “but it’s a real big dilemma for parents and kids with split custody.”
Rossdale said he’s “mindful” of whom he interacts with due to the risks of COVID-19 but remains concerned about them while they’re in another state.
“I know who’s around me and know who’s bringing the corona—no one—but you send your kids out and now they’re coming back to you, and now you’re prone to whoever they’re with,” he explained. “So, it’s a tricky one with all divorced parents.”
The No Doubt frontwoman filed for divorce in August 2015 after nearly 13 years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. They finalized their divorce in April 2016.
The former couple requested joint custody of their children.
“I miss them, and they should be back. I have them the first week and then I haven’t had them for ten or 11 days, and that’s a long time,” he said. “Normally, I have them every five days or something.”
