Gwen Stefani offered a payout to ex-husband Gavin Rossdale to avoid splitting her $120 million fortune. She is urging him to take a deal since he’s entitled to half her assets under California law, according to Radar Online.
Stefani, 45, filed for divorce earlier this week after 13 years of marriage. Gwen is hoping Gavin will take the money, which is somewhere in the range of $30 million.
“Gwen has really struggled with the idea of just handing over half of her hard-earned money to Gavin, and there is a lot of anger there. Gwen is hoping to just pay Gavin off because she doesn’t want to pay him any type of support. Gwen’s approach is that she should get to keep what is hers,” a source said.
Gwen Stefani’s payout is generous since Rossdale is believed to be worth $20 million, sources close to “The Voice” judge said. She is worth significantly more and is trying to protect her worth.
“It’s significantly more, around $120 million. A significant portion of the earnings comes from Gwen’s clothing lines, being a judge on The Voice, and of course her music career makes up the rest. Before Gwen and Gavin got married, her business advisers recommended they get a prenup. But Gwen balked and didn’t think it was necessary because this was going to be her forever,” the source said.
Stefani was already told by Rossdale’s lawyer that he is not impressed with the offer. His lawyer, Laura Wasser, is going to go after as much money she can get out of Gwen.
The couple filed court documents ending their marriage earlier this week and issued a statement confirming the news, insisting they will be seeking joint custody of nine-year-old Kingston, six-year-old Zuma and 17-month-old Apollo.
“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 said in a statement.
Gwen appeared downcast on Friday when she was seen in Beverly Hills, but she was still flashing her wedding ring. Stefani has remained quiet about her divorce, but she suspects her husband of cheating, according to reports.
She wore her trademark red lipstick and pulled her platinum-blonde locks into a high and tight top knot. Stefani teamed a red plaid shirt with cropped paint-splattered boyfriend jeans and skyscraper heels with glittery embellishments.
There are so many rumors that sparked this divorce by Stefani, but we may never know the real story. What we do know is, she wants Rossdale to take her offer, and is doing everything to protect her money.
