They called time on their 13-year marriage in August – and Gwen Stefani recently revealed the split with her rocker ex Gavin Rossdale was “unexpected,” admitting “life blew up in my face.”

And last week reports emerged, claiming that Bush rocker Gavin had been cheating on Gwen, 46, with their longtime family nanny Mindy Mann, who was paid to look after the couple’s three sons, Kingston, nine, Zuma, seven, and Apollo, 21 months.

According to Us Weekly magazine, Gwen confronted husband Gavin in February after another nanny found explicit messages and images between Gavin and Mindy that had been synced to the family’s iPad.

These were reported to include nude pictures Mindy, who’s in her 20s, had sent to Gavin, 50, and messages between them planning to meet up for sex.


The report claims that at first Gavin denied the affair – but later confessed – leaving Gwen no option but to file for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.”

A source told the magazine Gwen was left “completely devastated” over the affair, alleged to have lasted three years, including while she was pregnant with the couple’s youngest son, Apollo.

It’s even claimed he left Gwen in hospital after the birth to sleep with Mindy.
