He could have taken half of his now ex-wife's fortune, but Gavin Rossdale has reportedly chosen not to take such a path when it came to finalizing his divorce from Gwen Stefani.
The pair's divorce has reportedly been settled in court, and though he could have taken 50 percent of the money Stefani earned during their marriage since she did not have a prenup, Rossdale allegedly chose to take a far smaller amount.
According to TMZ, Rossdale did not press to get a big chunk of Stefani's money earned from concerts and record sales, even though he was legally allowed to make such a request. Details of the settlement aren't entirely revealed, but the couple also reportedly agreed to a 50/50 joint custody agreement when it comes to their sons, Kingston, Zuma and Apollo, though Rossdale will have more than 50 percent custody at time due to Stefani's touring schedule.
The website also reports that Rossdale is not asking for child support, which Stefani, as the parent with more money and higher earning capacity, would have had to provide if he sought it.
All that is left for the couple's divorce proceedings is not having things signed off on by the judge, meaning they could officially be divorced in the coming days.
The couple, who were married for 13 years, announced their divorce over the summer last year. It was later revealed that the marriage initially fell apart earlier in the year, after Stefani found inappropriate text messages between Rossdale and nanny Mindy Mann, which revealed he'd been having an affair with her for three years.
Since the divorce, Stefani has since moved on with Blake Shelton, in a romance that has been highly publicized due to Shelton's quick divorce from Miranda Lambert just weeks before Stefani's own plans for a divorce were announced. Rossdale has not been linked to anyone else in a new romance, though Mann has been revealed to be pregnant, though the baby is not believed to be one she conceived with Rossdale.
