Is Gavin Rossdale challenging Gwen Stefani’s right to happiness with Blake Shelton? After allegedly ruining their marriage by cheating behind her back for years with the family nanny, Gavin stayed under-the-radar for months. Now, Rossdale has resurfaced. And with him is the same nanny with whom Gavin had that secret, shocking affair, reports Radar Online.
Rossdale ruined his marriage and caused heartbreak for Gwen, but will the knowledge that Gavin is enjoying the renewal of his romance with nanny Mindy Mann open up those wounds again? Rossdale and Mindy were seen together in North Hollywood at a gastropub, the Fat Dog. Although Mann now has red hair, the former blonde still stood out, as did the chemistry between Gavin and Mindy, an observer told Radar.
“They definitely acted like a couple,” revealed the observer. “They were eating off each other’s plates, leaning in, and laughing.”
Moreover, the North Hollywood pub isn’t exactly on the list of hot spots in the area, hinting that Rossdale and Mann were attempting to date without going public.
“It seemed like they were trying to stay under the radar, because this place is off the beaten path,” added the eyewitness. “But they arrived and left together.”
Mindy once took care of the three sons shared by Gavin and Stefani. But the date wasn’t a family affair, because Kingston, 9, Zuma 6, and Apollo, 2, were not present. Instead, Rossdale and Mann enjoyed gulping down beers and dining as a duo.
Learning that Rossdale is rekindling his romance with Mindy has impacted Gwen, a source told Hollywood Life.
“She feels like the two of them (Gavin and Mindy) meeting in public is just a slap in the face and completely inappropriate,” revealed the insider.
It’s adding to the pain and humiliation she already has experienced over Rossdale and Mann. Their affair lasted for three years, and Stefani only learned about Gavin and Mindy when another family nanny uncovered nude photos of Mann and suggestive texts, reported the Daily Mail.
When Rossdale admitted he had been unfaithful, his wife was “mortified, livid, and embarrassed,” said a source cited by the Daily Mail.
After the discovery that Gavin had been cheating with Mindy, divorce followed. But although Gwen seemed to find happiness in her new relationship, now there’s trouble there as well.
OK magazine reports that Shelton and his girlfriend have broken up. And the true reason for that split is her jealous behavior over his former wife Miranda Lambert.
Still suffering from all the drama she experienced in her marriage with Rossdale, the mom of three allowed her past to impact her current relationship with Shelton when Miranda contacted her and labeled her a “homewrecker,” an insider told OK.
Rather than focus on the bad behavior Lambert allegedly exhibited, or letting it go and turning her back on the situation, Stefani verbally attacked Blake.
She accused her boyfriend of giving her number to Miranda, according to the insider. And that just irritated the country crooner, who felt that she made a “mountain out of a molehill,” added the source.
“The whole situation [with Lambert] made him see another side of [his girlfriend] he didn’t know was there,” revealed the insider.
However, three young folks could be affected if this rift continues, and that’s the three sons that Gavin Rossdale and his wife share. When she recently threw a big birthday bash for their youngest child, Apollo, who will officially turn two on February 28, it was Shelton, not Rossdale, who was present, reported ET.
Another hint of the influence that the country crooner has in the lives of Gavin’s three sons: The birthday party had a cowboy theme. And Blake even seemed to take on the role of substitute father in the absence of Gavin, an eyewitness told E!.
“Blake was very hands-on with the kids, playing and walking around with them. Overall, the mood was happy and festive. Everyone had a good time.”
The party lasted for four hours and featured a live band, pony rides, and petting zoo. Celebrities with children enjoyed the fun as well. In attendance were Jessica Alba and her husband, Cash Warren, and their two daughters, 7-year-old Honor and 4-year-old Haven, as well as Rachel Zoe and her two sons, 4-year-old Skyler and 2-year-old Kaius.
