Gwen Stefani can’t believe that her ex-husband, grunge rocker Gavin Rossdale, is seeing the nanny that he allegedly cheated on her with. However, if Gwen’s hunch is right, Gavin isn’t in love with rumored paramour Mindy Mann — Gwen reportedly thinks that Gavin is just trying to get under her skin by spending time with Mindy.
According to Hollywood Life, Gwen Stefani believes that Gavin Rossdale was trying to make her jealous when he went out on a recent lunch date with Mindy Mann. Things have been going great for Gwen and her new cowboy boyfriend, country singer Blake Shelton, but Gavin hasn’t benefited from the breakdown of his marriage the same way Gwen has — while the “Make Me Like You” singer has been delighting Stefani fans by gushing about her relationship with Blake, Gavin has been painted as the dirty cheater who broke Gwen’s heart.
A source revealed that Gwen Stefani is very aware that Gavin Rossdale recently went out on a public date with Mindy Mann, and she thinks that Gavin and Mindy are purposely trying to get paparazzi attention so that she’ll know that they’ve been spending time together.
“Gwen feels like this whole Gavin and Mindy meeting is a stunt to make her jealous and upset. She doesn’t understand why they had to be so obvious about their get-together,” a source told Hollywood Life.
The No Doubt frontwoman reportedly thinks that Gavin Rossdale’s date with Mindy Mann is “a slap in the face and completely inappropriate,” but Gwen Stefani isn’t going to let her ex’s stunt harsh her mellow.
“Gwen is in the best place she’s ever been and she’s not for one minute going to let her ex get to her.”
Last year, a source told Us Weekly that Gavin had been cheating on Gwen with their children’s nanny, Mindy Mann, for years. However, Gwen didn’t find out about the affair until she found nude photos of the nanny on the family iPad. Mann was reportedly fired, but it looks like she’s still a part of Gavin’s life.
According to Radar Online, Gavin and Mindy were recently photographed together at the Fat Dog gastropub in North Hollywood on Wednesday. An eyewitness revealed that they were acting like a couple by “laughing” together and “eating off each other’s plates” during their lunch date.
Even though Gavin is seemingly dating Mindy, he was recently spotted wearing his wedding ring. According to OK! Magazine, Gwen Stefani’s husband of 13 years was photographed with the gold band on his finger while he was out with his sons on January 24. Gwen and Gavin have three children together: nine-year-old Kingston, six-year-old Zuma, and one-year-old Apollo.
According to In Touch Weekly (via the Hollywood Gossip), sources have claimed that Gavin is only wearing his wedding ring to “taunt” his ex. He’s not happy that his ex-wife has moved on with Blake Shelton, and he’s allegedly “playing mind games in a twisted bid to keep her trapped in their marriage.”
If this is true, Gavin is trying to have his cake and eat it too — he’s obviously enjoying the company of Mindy Mann while he waits for Gwen Stefani to take him back.
However, it doesn’t look like Gwen will be interested in reuniting with her ex. Gwen giggled like a schoolgirl while talking about new beau during her recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. As People reports, Ellen cracked Gwen up by asking her when Blake Shelton “popped the big question.” However, she wasn’t talking about a marriage proposal — the cheeky host was asking Gwen when Blake asked her to be his team’s mentor on the upcoming season of The Voice.
There have been persistent rumors that Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton are going to get hitched and have a baby together in the near future, but as The Inquisitr previously reported, Blake has said that it’s too soon to be talking about marriage and kids.
