Who Is Mindy Mann, The Nanny Who Was Allegedly Gavin Rossdale’s Mistress?
Gavin Rossdale allegedly cheated on his longtime wife Gwen Stefani with their children’s nanny, Mindy Mann.
Who Is Mindy Mann?
Mann began working for Stefani and Rossdale back in 2008, helping them look after sons Kingston, 9, and Zuma, 7. Four years later in 2012, Rossdale is believed to have begun an affair with the twentysomething nanny, reported Us Weekly. The Bush rocker reportedly even ditched his wife in the hospital following the birth of their third son, Apollo Bowie, in 2014 to go home to sleep with Mann.
Stefani found out about Rossdale and Mann’s affair after messages and nude photos exchanged between the two showed up on the family’s iPad. Upon making the discovery, the former No Doubt frontwoman fired Mann and filed for divorce from Rossdale.
Mann, who hails from Australia, had allegedly been a major fan of Stefani’s prior to landing the gig with family. It wasn’t long after she was hired that Mann began dressing like the singer and songwriter. Pictures unearthed from Mann’s social media profiles show the younger woman had a penchant for imitating Stefani’s styles – but apparently her copy-cat tendencies didn’t end there.
“If Gwen would eat something or do a workout or get a new handbag, Mindy would do the same thing,” a source told Us. “Gwen thought it was weird.”
As of yet, none of the parties involved – Mann, Rossdale or Stefani – have weighed in on the reports about the alleged affair.
Since separating from Rossdale back in February and going public with a divorce filing in August, Stefani has moved on in love with fellow The Voice coach Blake Shelton.
