Gavin/Gwen divorce settlement details revealed
Seems like Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani’s divorce, when it comes to financials and child custody, seems pretty amicable.
Per TMZ, Rossdale decline to go after a good chunk of money Stefani made during their marriage, even though there was no prenuptial agreement. Pretty much everything Stefani made, she kept, and whatever Rossdale made he kept. The couple also agreed to joint physical and legal custody of their three children.
The only major caveats in everything involved Stefani putting 25% of the profits from her fashion lines into a trust for the children and getting their two homes in Los Angeles, while Rossdale gets their four homes in Europe. The couple will also split the profits from the sale of another home in Beverly Hills.
