Gwen Stefani‘s son Zuma – who broke both arms within six weeks – now sees his father Gavin Rossdale suggesting that life is even riskier when with mom Gwen. Zuma, 11, made headlines during the pandemic for seeing his 54-year-old father reveal that he’d broken both arms. The latest sees the dad to “The Voice” judge’s three kids opening up with a little more.
Gavin had revealed that Zuma broke the first arm indoors, with a sit-down with Yahoo Music’s editor Lyndsey Parker yesterday bringing 50-year-old Gwen into it.
Zuma, above, with Gwen’s beau Blake Shelton, of course. Gavin’s Wednesday interview saw him say: “He fell off a stool at one point, busted his arm, fixed it, had a little splint for it.”
“Then he went bike-riding and wiped out, broke the other arm, ripped his elbow, gashed his leg with the pedal, ” he added, then name-dropping the location where Zuma spends time with mom Gwen. “And that’s nothing compared to when he’s in Oklahoma!”
Rossdale and the “No Doubt” singer share three children, also co-parenting 14-year-old Kingston and 6-year-old Apollo. More below.
Oklahoma is, of course, also where Gwen is spending time with boyfriend Blake Shelton on the country crooner’s massive Oklahoma ranch. Rossdale continued:
“I’ve got to get him a Michelin Man suit or something. He’s just a bruiser, you know? He’s too brave and crazy. The other two [Kingston and 6-year-old Apollo] are a bit more measured, but this guy is like Evel Knievel!”
“He fell off a stool at one point, busted his arm, fixed it, had a little splint for it. Then he went bike-riding and wiped out, broke the other arm, ripped his elbow, gashed his leg with the pedal,” Rossdale had said on last week’s IG live.
Lock-down sees this former couple co-parenting – clearly, per Rossdale, the risk is higher when Zuma is around his mother. The pre-teen breaking both arms in six weeks did, however, occur under his father’s supervision.
July 2 brought headlines as he spoke to Haute TV’s YouTube channel to reveal Zuma had also gotten a gash on his leg that required five stitches. The first arm healed in the six weeks before the second was broken as no bones had been immobilized.
Of the co-parenting scenario, Rossdale added: “We just split it. And then in the summer [the visits] get a bit longer, because it seems like a lot — I think that because they’re staying in Oklahoma, it’s a lot to ask them to come back one week on, one week off.”
“So it’ll be like three weeks there, then they’ll come back for three weeks with me, and then it’s just even. [Gwen and I] look at the end of the month and make sure it’s even, however it is,” he concluded.
