Let’s get caught up on the Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale cheating scandal, shall we? In the past few days, sources from Gwen’s camp have gotten busy leaking all kinds of juicy stuff–mostly to US Magazine–about how the split came about. Reportedly, Gwen learned–the day after the Grammys no less–that her husband was having an affair the nanny. That’s your typical Hollywood trope, right here.
Gwen allegedly confronted Gavin about disturbing text messages and photos she discovered between him and their nanny, Mindy Mann, back in February. However, Gwen had noticed suspicious signs before the confrontation. The couple hired Mann in 2008, and supposedly she immediately began copying Gwen’s look. “Gwen thought it was weird,” said the source.
Gwen became suspicious when photos of Gavin and Mann surfaced in November 2012, with the rocker touching their nanny’s butt as they hiked with two of the couple’s three sons, Kingston and Zuma, in L.A.
Finally, Gwen found naked photos Mann sent to Gavin in his phone. She confronted her husband who admitted to a 3 year affair with the girl. It was another nanny who discovered explicit texts on the family’s iPad, which was connected to Gavin’s phone. The messages included details of plans to meet up for sex. The help brought the incriminating evidence to Gwen’s attention.
E News provides a handy timeline, and reports from Gavin’s camp that he’s still wearing his wedding ring, because it makes their 3 children feel good.
“He is a fantastic father and his kids have been going through a hard time,” the source told E News. “He wears his wedding ring because it makes the kids feel good,” the source adds. “His kids are his number one priority.”
Meanwhile, Gwen has embarked on a relationship with her fellow divorced The Voice coach, Blake Shelton.
