I’ve never wanted to appear closed about it, it’s not something I’ve talked about really because it’s always been in the glare of a tabloid world, it’s just one of those things – move on. When you’re 17, Jesus Christ, I don’t think there’s anything strange about any form of anything – you’re learning about life. It’s a part of growing up – that’s it, no more, no less.
Rossdale’s relationship with “Marilyn” was when he was a teenager. When the news first came out, he was worried that it would affect his career with his band Bush. Boy George first wrote about Rossdale and Marilyn’s relationship in his 1995 book, “Take It Like a Man.”
