Gavin Rossdale was spotted on a PDA-filled night out with model Sophia Thomalla on Friday, Mar. 31 in London. We’ve gathered everything you need to know about the new woman in Gavin’s life since his split from Gwen Stefani!
Gavin Rossdale has kept his romantic life on the down low since his public and tumultuous divorce from Gwen Stefani, 47, in August 2015. The 51 year-old was seen out in London with model Sophia Thomalla, 27, on Mar. 31 and the pair were clearly into each. They were spotted walking with arms around each other and kissing on a street corner. We’ve rounded up the five things you need to know about the possible new woman in Gavin’s life here.
1. She’s a model from Germany.
Sophia was born in Berlin in Oct. 1989 before she moved to Cologne with her mother when she was 7 years-old. She’s built up a successful career as a model and TV personality in Germany. She has a full sleeve of tattoos on her left arm and a half sleeve on her right.
2. She has a history of dating rockers.
Sophia was previously married to Andy LaPlegua, who’s a part of Norwegian rock band Icon of Coil. Before her marriage, she was in a five year relationship with Till Lindemann, who is in the German band Rammstein. It would come as no surprise then that Sophia and Gavin met “on the touring scene,” as a source told The Sun. Gavin gained famed as the lead singer and guitarist in the British band Bush.
3. Sophia is a major Justin Bieber fan.
Sophia is definitely a major Biebler. She has posted about Justin on her Instagram several times. She even shared a photograph of a Justin face made out of food with bacon for hair and captioned in “kunst,” which means art.
4. She’s appeared on several German TV programs.
Sophia obviously has worked a great deal as model, but she’s also made several appearances on popular German television shows. She was on Germany’s version of Dancing With The Stars called Let’s Dance. Sophia later became a judge on the program Dance, Dance, Dance.
5. It’s still just the start of her relationship with Gavin.
“It’s very early days, but Gavin is really taken by Sophia,” a source told The Sun. “They’re having fun and the relationship has the potential to turn serious if that continues.” The pair were super cuddly on their London date night. Could Sofia be the one for Gavin?
