(He of the hit “Calling Your Name” song.) Fifteen years since the whispers started (Boy George actually is credited with first revealing a romance between Rossdale and Marilyn), Rossdale gave a clear answer, admitting that it was more of a one-time experimental fling than a true relationship.

Are you surprised Rossdale would come clean so many years later? Or was it about time? Let us know.
