Photo of Gavin Rossdale and Marilyn emerges
A new photo has been released showing rock singer Gavin Rossdale with cross-dressing 80s pop star Marilyn, with whom he had a gay fling as a teen.
The picture shows Marilyn – real name Peter Robinson – embracing the teenage Bush singer about his waist and leaning his head on the young man’s chest. Both men wear matching white suits.
Rossdale finally confirmed this month that he did indeed have a relationship with Marilyn as a young man after initially denying it when Boy George wrote about them in his memoirs back in 1995.
Rossdale, who is now married to singer Gwen Stefani, claimed he was wary of the possible reaction:
“I think at the outset there was a sort of fear - that was right at the beginning of Bush, and I didn’t want it to be part of it. It felt like a cheap shot, so I was like: ‘I’m not getting involved'.”
Marilyn also kept quiet about the affair at the time for the sake of Rossdale’s US career, but recently broke his silence on the matter, forcing Rossdale to face up to the rumours.
