Singer Gwen Stefani has filed for divorce from husband Gavin Rossdale after 13 years of marriage.

The couple has three children.

Rossdale also has a fourth child from a previous relationship, with a paternity test revealing in 2004 that he is the father of Pearl Lowe's daughter Daisy, born in 1989.

The two, announcing separation via a statement, said they will jointly raise their kids in a "happy" environment, according to TMZ.

"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," Stefani and Rossdale said in the statement.

"To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time."

Stefani, 45, sings for the band No Doubt and has had a solo career.

Rossdale, 49, is the lead singer for the band Bush.
