Oh boy. The drama is starting to swirl up. Last week Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton came out as a couple. Then Gavin Rossdale was spotted wearing his wedding ring, despite the fact that his divorce from Gwen has been finalized, and stories began that he had “suspicions” about Gwen and Blake even before they split. Now a story has come out that Gwen divorced Gavin over a long-term affair with one of their nannies.
A source told Us Weekly that Gavin had a three-year affair with Mindy Mann that included when Gwen was pregnant with their youngest child, Apollo. Gwen reportedly discovered the affair last February. She is said to have found “explicit texts” that included nude pictures of Mindy and plans to meet up to have sex. The “family source” explained:
The iPad was linked to Gavin’s phone. One of the other nannies discovered the exchange and told Gwen.”
Gwen fired Mindy, according to the source, but Gavin kept insisting that the exchanges were simply “flirtation.” When he finally admitted they had had an affair, Gwen decided to file for divorce. The source said:
[The admission] completely devastated her. She was mortified, livid, and embarrassed.
This was done right under Gwen’s nose.”
Who can blame Gwen for feeling that way? Really, though, it’s Gavin who should be mortified and embarrassed. It’s so cliche to have an affair with the nanny. I don’t believe any married person should cheat- if you’re that unhappy, then get out of the marriage and date whoever you want- but there are some people you just don’t get romantically involved with, like your kids’ nanny. Gwen’s rep was not available for comment while Gavin’s rep declined to comment.
Do you believe this or could this story be in retaliation for the “Gavin’s suspicions about Gwen and Blake” story? Honestly, I’m not sure. I’ve heard the nanny rumors before, but the timing of this story is interesting…
