One woman is at the center of the whirlwind of Gwen and Gavin’s divorce: Mindy, the couple’s former nanny. Gavin allegedly cheated on Gwen with her for three years! While she used to be seen out with the kids and their parents all the time, she’s now gone into hiding. E! found out why on Nov. 18. A source told them “the last few weeks have been extremely difficult for Mindy. She has been bombarded with media trying to get her to talk about Gavin and the kids and she isn’t wanting to talk.”

So why doesn’t Mindy want to talk? If the rumors are false, wouldn’t she want to clear her name? And if they are true, the couple is now divorced so she could just admit it. Turns out, her reason for keeping tight-lipped has nothing to do with her former employers. “She cares about those kids so much and out of respect for the family wants to keep quiet,” a source told E!. Aww, that’s actually really sweet. Turns out that Gwen has the same concern.

“Gwen didn’t want the news about the nanny to get out for the sake of her kids,” another source tells E! “She really wanted to protect them and not have them go through knowing this went on with their father and someone that she trusted.” We’re glad everyone is keeping the little ones in mind, but it must be hard to stay out of the spotlight. So where is Mindy laying low? “She is still currently in LA, but keeping a low profile and has shut her phone off,” says the source. Well, we kinda want to hear her side of the story, so hopefully she won’t stay in hiding much longer!

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Should Mindy spill the beans? Sound off below!
