British singer Marilyn, born Peter Robinson, claims he had a 5-year affair with Gavin Rossdale, husband of Gwen Stefani.
Allegations first surfaced in 1995 that the cross-dressing singer and the Bush frontman had been lovers in the 80s, in the Boy George biography “Take It Like a Man.” Both Marilyn and Rossdale denied the claim at the time, saying they were just good friends.
Marilyn now tells In Touch magazine that he agreed to deny their affair because of Rossdale’s growing music career.
“He was just becoming successful in America. I agreed to lie against every grain in my body,” Marilyn says. “We were together five years, but it felt like forty.”
Marilyn added Rossdale “was the love of my life.”
Rossdale, who has been married to Gwen Stefani for 7 years, has not commented on the latest claims.
