Gavin Rossdale had an affair with male pop star Marilyn.

The Bush singer - who is now married to No Doubt star Gwen Stefani - had a fling with the gender-bending singer in the 1980s but didn't admit to the relationship before because of the "glare" of the media.

Gavin said: "I think at the outset there was a sort of fear - that was right at the beginning of Bush, and I didn't want it to be part of it. It felt like a cheap shot, so I was like, 'I'm not getting involved.'

"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."

Asked if it was a one-time experimentation, he said: "Yeah. That was it. You have to know what you like, and I know what I like."

Gavin has also spoken candidly about his relationship with his 21-year-old model daughter Daisy Lowe.

The 44-year-old musician admits he feels more like a friend to Daisy - who he only found out was his daughter in 2004 after her mother Pearl Lowe revealed her parentage - because he wasn't involved in her childhood like his two sons, Kingston, four, and Zuma, two, with Gwen.

Gavin - who had been Daisy's Godfather - added in an interview with Details magazine: "With the boys it's traditional. I'm all they know and I'm with them all the time. With Daisy, I don't know her in that context.

"The way I nurture those boys, I never got a chance with Daisy. I love my connection with her, but I don't have any say in who she is. With the boys it's my job to correct them and shape them. With Daisy, I just have to be respectful. I suppose it's more like a Friendship."

Marilyn previously claimed he had a five-year relationship with Gavin which he agreed to keep secret for the sake of his rock career.

Marilyn - real name Peter Robinson - said: "He was the love of my life. We were together five years, but it felt like 40. He was just becoming successful In America. I agreed to lie against every grain of my being."

The androgynous singer's close friend Boy George alleged the two men had a relationship in his autobiography 'Take It Like A Man'.
