British musician and actor Gavin Rossdale and No Doubt lead singer Gwen Stefani have reportedly agreed to settle their divorce.
This entails 50/50 child custody for both musicians, who are parents to three children, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 6, and Apollo, 19 months.

The former 90’s couple first made the announcement about their divorce in August, citing irreconcilable differences. While there have also been rumors spreading that the British musician has cheated with his kids’ nanny, no new updates have been reported since then.
According to reports, the divorce was already expected, and was ‘a long time coming’. A report has also cited that the marriage has been ‘rocky’ even before baby Apollo was born. The two 90’s rock stars tried to patch things up but they just couldn’t. “A lot of the feeling was gone”, a source told reports a couple of months ago. This could mean that the recent settlement has been well thought out for months in order to speed up the settlement process.

Aside from getting equal child custody of his children, Rossdale, 49, also agreed to get less than half of the couple’s shared property. The judge would reportedly sign the final divorce papers by the end of the year, if everything ‘runs smoothly’.
"While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment," the couple told Us Magazine.
While both parents would get equal custody of the three kids, it seems Rossdale will have them more often, due to the 46-year-old Stefani’s tight schedule.

Rossdale and Stefani have been married for 13 years. The two first became lovebirds in 1995, when Gwen Stefani’s No Doubt opened for Rossdale’s band, Bush while on tour.
