The mother of Gavin Rossdale's lovechild Daisy Lowe is "heartbroken" she's lost her friendship with the English rocker and his wife Gwen Stefani.

Designer and singer Pearl Lowe was close friends with the Bush frontman and No Doubt beauty until last year (04) when she decided to take a DNA test to find out who the true father of her 16-year-old daughter Daisy was.

Lowe and Rossdale had a brief fling in the 1980s and stayed such close friends, the rocker was godfather to Daisy.

Lowe is currently embroiled in a court case with Rossdale, so she cannot discuss the case, but she admits she is devastated over losing her friendship with Rossdale and Stefani.

She says, "Issues need to be worked out on paper that we can't resolve ourselves.

"When I can talk about it, I will. I've lost a very dear friend over this, which is heartbreaking. Daisy is a beautiful soul who doesn't deserve this.

"I don't think I'll ever be able to friends with him again. It's gone past that. Very sad."
