Marilyn Breaks Silence on 5 Year Relationship with Gavin Rossdale

British singer Marilyn (aka Peter Robinson) says he and Gavin Rossdale had a 5 year relationship in the 80s.
Back in 1995, Boy George first publicly exposed Rossdale's alleged romantic relationship with androgynous male British rocker Marilyn in his book Take It Like a Man. Rossdale claimed, "I wasn't dating Marilyn. We were, and still are, good friends."

At the time, Gavin vehemently denied their romantic involvement. It wasn't until now, however, that Marilyn is confirming the existence of the relationship. "We were together five years. But it felt like 40," Marilyn told In Touch. He adds, "Gavin and Gwen are perfect for each other, but he was the love of my life"

Marilyn explains why he initially pretended they'd never been a couple, "[Gavin] was just becoming successful in America. I agreed to lie against every grain of my being." As for Rossdale, he maintains his denial of any romantic entanglement.
I remember reading about this in Boy George's book several years back.  And there is (what I found to be) an odd connection between these three:  Marilyn was born in Kingston, Jamaica.  Gwen & crew went all Jamaican-me-crazy with Rock Steady, and Gwen and Gavin's son is named Kingston.  Weird.
