Just like Ben Affleck and Jude Law and many others before him, Gavin Rossdale is a famous dude who can’t keep his pants zipped up when the nanny’s around. Say what you want about the women in these cases but, really, it’s the guys who were married and committed so we think we know where the blame lies, you know?
That being said, his infidelities have been long suspected, with Lainey Gossip pointing out that the rumours about Gavin and his “voracious appetite” and “multiples” have been going around for years. So Us Weekly‘s new report shouldn’t surprise anyone — but they have some details that you just might find interesting.
According to Us, Rossdale was involved for three years with nanny Mindy Mann — including the period of time when Stefani was pregnant with their youngest son, Apollo. But it wasn’t until this past February that Stefani found out about it — after discovering explicit texts between Gavin and Mindy (including nude photos of the nanny) and their plans to meet up for sex. On the family’s iPad, which was linked to Gavin’s phone. Knucklehead.
Gwen even spoke about the events in an interview with with KIIS FM’s JoJo Wright, saying, “I had been writing because my life blew up. Everybody knows that my life blew up last February. I’d just been dealing with that. Unexpected. I was going along thinking that was going to be the rest of my life and it’s not. I don’t know what happened.”
Mann was fired but Rossdale insisted to Stefani that the exchange was simply “flirtation.” He eventually confessed to the affair months later and that’s when she finally ended things.
She told Wright about how it all inspired her latest hit, saying, “There was one night, the epicentre of the whole thing — that’s the most I can say about that — and the next day I wrote the chorus to ‘Used to Love You.'”
Poor Gwen. But not really. Because look how she’s bouncing back. Not only does she have a new single but she’s got a new man, Blake Shelton. And whether Gwake is going to last, or is simply a Voice-y rebound, we’re just happy she’s finally getting hers.
