Matt Goss Parents
His parents divorced and his mother remarried. Goss told The Guardian he was happiest when his mother had separated from his father. “At 37 Crawford Road in Camberwell, London. My mother had separated from my father and we had nothing, but I remember roast potatoes, twopence in the gas meter and music. It was the only time in my life when I felt at home.”
Goss’s mother, Carol, died in 2014 from breast cancer. In an interview with The Independent in March 2022, Goss said: “I honestly never speak about this but f*** it… My mum is dead. I have no relationship with my family. My father does not speak to us. He lives in France. I forgot his birthday. I’m sorry, it was Covid. It was Groundhog Day. My industry had vaporised. There was no ‘Are you OK?’ When you are famous, people don’t think you’re also the son. Yes, we are still the juniors. No matter how old you get you still need that parental influence and reassurance.”
After his mother died, Matt took in his stepfather. “I made a promise to Mum I’d look after my stepfather. Tony said he didn’t want to wear grey and black. So I really tricked him out, the 72-year-old, and he loved it. I gave him some Jimmy Choo’s sneakers in bright burgundy. He lived with me for four years and really cramped my style. It was difficult. But funny. We were called the odd couple on social media. My chat-up line was: ‘I’m Matt Goss and I live with my stepfather.’ Which is not very sexy. I bought him a car, I incorporated him into my show… After a while he said: ‘I’m ready to go back to London.’”

“Oh yeah. I was in a relationship recently and I cared very much for this person. But there was this insistence that we posted about it online. I said the consequence of that is our lives are going to be digested. I want to hold hands in the park. Watch Netflix. Eat takeout. I don’t want to be under the microscope. It’s different if you’re engaged or married. Then I think it’s safe. But if there’s even an element of transience then I don’t want to be exposed like that. But I have never lost the expectation of love and safety. I know what I want. I was on a dating site, and I just said: I want to find my person. Somebody with a beautiful heart and a sense of humour who likes my dog. Good conversation…”
