Even though Boy George wrote about it in his 1995 autobiography and Marilyn himself has described Gavin as the love of his life.
But now Gavin has decided to admit it for some reason during an interview with and American magazine.
Explaining to the mag why he didn't admit it from the start he said, "I think at the outset there was a sort of fear - that was right at the beginning of Bush, and I didnít want it to be part of it. It felt like a cheap shot, so I was like: ĎIím not getting involved."
He also explained that he was just a teenager when it took place, "When youíre 17, Jesus Christ, I donít think thereís anything strange about any form of anything - youíre learning about life. Itís a part of growing up - thatís it, no more, no less."
But now Gavin is said to be regretting being so candid in the interview and even pleaded with the editor of the magazine not to print the confession.
Sources at the magazine say that the reason he's now had a change of heart is because he had not yet ever admitted the affair to his wife Gwen.
Surely that can't be true - he'd tell a magazine before telling his wife? Well you can never be sure, especially when you take into consideration the other scandal that was dredged up from his past a few years ago.
He had an affair with singer/designer (sound familiar?) Pearl Lowe and the pair had remained good friends. So much so that Gavin was Godfather to Pearl's daughter Daisy Lowe. But then, by chance, it was revealed that Daisy had a different blood type to her mum and the man she thought was her father. A DNA test then revealed that Gavin was actually her father. Even though she and Gavin had been close growing up, it has been reported that since the DNA results cam back years ago he has cut off all contact from her.
