Can you believe TWO nannies may have played a role in Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s split?! While Gavin allegedly cheated with one babysitter, a second nanny reportedly exposed the entire affair to Gwen, who eventually filed for divorce. Yikes!
Poor Gwen Stefani. It was bad enough that she reportedly suspected for years that her ex-husband, Gavin Rossdale, had been cheating with the family nanny, Mindy Mann, but things were only made worse when it was another employee of the family who confirmed that her worst fears were true, according to a new report. Get the scoop here.
Gwen was absolutely gutted when she allegedly saw disturbing texts between her then-hubby and Mindy back in February, but Gavin chalked it all up to “flirtation” when confronted, according to Us Weekly. “But other people, including a second nanny, came forward telling her they knew about the relationship,” the mag’s source says. “Gavin had to come clean.”
He reportedly did just that over the summer which is why the No Doubt frontwoman finally decided to file for divorce in August. The text messages she discovered on the family iPad months before were reportedly explicit, and allegedly included nude photos of Mindy, along with plans between her and Gavin to meet up and have sex. “The iPad was linked to Gavin’s phone,” the insider claims. “One of the other nannies discovered the exchange and told Gwen.” Yiiiiikes.
Unfortunately, there were some other telltale signs that pointed towards the alleged three-year affair, as well. Gavin and Mindy had actually been photographed getting handsy before — and it was all caught on camera. Gavin allegedly left Gwen after the birth of their son Apollo to sleep with Mindy! Photos surfaced in Nov. 2012 of the Bush frontman with his hand suspiciously placed on the nanny’s lower back while they were on a hike with the kids…with Gwen nowhere in sight. And those close to the family couldn’t help but notice that Mindy seemed to dress and style herself just like the 46-year-old, too. Suspicious, right?!
While Gavin is usually able to keep a low profile, Gwen has been front-and-center in the spotlight as these allegations have come out. She’ll even appear live on The Voice tonight and is, coincidentally, set to perform her song “Used To Love You,” which is about her and Gavin’s divorce. Should be an emotional one…luckily she has her new man, Blake Shelton, right by her side on the show!
HollywoodLifers, are you surprised Gavin would allegedly cheat? Do you think it was right of a second nanny to expose the affair to Gwen?
