According to Us Weekly, it was Rossdale and his alleged acts of adultery with Mann the nanny that caused the split. Mindy and Gavin allegedly messed around right under Gwen's nose for years -- even though Stefani has not yet confirmed the Mann nanny affair via her PR rep. Rossdale's PR rep, interestingly, declined to comment to the publication.
It's similar to the Ben Affleck nanny controversy that featured Jennifer Garner and Affleck's divorce news coming as video of Ben not wearing his wedding ring the day following Jennifer's birthday, as reported by the Inquisitr. Gwen and Gavin's story is also that of a famous married couple in the entertainment industry whose marriage hit the rocks when the news of an affair with the nanny was revealed. The 46-year-old Stefani was reportedly "livid" when she discovered Rossdale had allegedly been cheating with Mann.
Stefani's discovery about Mindy the nanny, reports the New York Daily News, devastated Gwen, and Mann was fired. Gavin, 50, said he was only flirting with Mann at first, but then Rossdale confessed to an affair with Mindy three months later. That's when Gwen decided to divorce Gavin. Rossdale reportedly had a sexual relationship with Mindy, claims Us Weekly, for three years. Mann and Rossdale allegedly slept together during the time that Gwen was pregnant with her and Gavin's son, Apollo.
