The couple married in 2002 and have three children. Rossdale also has a fourth child from a previous relationship, with a paternity test revealing in 2004 that he is the father of Pearl Lowe‘s daughter Daisy, born in 1989.
“While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment,” Stefani and Rossdale said in a statement. “To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time.”
Stefani sings for the band No Doubt and has had a solo career. Rossdale is the lead singer for the band Bush.
A rep for the couple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
