Gavin Rossdale is accused of cheating with the family’s nanny Mindy Mann, but the relationship may not be the only affair for the British rocker.
Rossdale and Gwen Stefani announced that their 13-year marriage would come to an end, a shock for many fans who saw them as an example of a couple that remained strong while other celebrity relationships withered. But in the weeks after the announcement, a picture began to emerge of Rossdale’s alleged infidelity, which includes two long relationships.
A report from Us Weekly claims that in February, an affair with nanny Mindy Mann came to light, with Gwen Stefani discovering some explicit text messages, including nude photos of Mann and plans to meet for sex sent to a family iPad.
“The iPad was linked to Gavin’s phone,” a family source told the magazine. “One of the other nannies discovered the exchange and told Gwen.”

Somehow Gwen and Gavin Rossdale moved past the incident, with Gavin reportedly convincing his wife that nothing physical happened. But within a few months, he confessed to having an affair, and the two planned to divorce.
Sources told Us Weekly that Gavin Rossdale’s alleged relationship with Mindy Mann left Gwen embarrassed and angry.
“This was done right under Gwen’s nose,” the source claimed.

Mindy Mann is now the second person connected to Gavin Rossdale in his alleged infidelity. Shortly after the couple announced their split, an alleged former lover came forward to claim that Gavin reached out during the breakup.
According to Radar Online, the “cross dressing pop star” Marilyn had a relationship with Rossdale in the early 1980s and was connected to Rossdale again in the late 2000s (a relationship he reportedly denies).
But Marilyn claims Gavin reached out again, sharing his problems in the marriage.
“I spoke to him a couple weeks ago, ” Marilyn, born Peter Robinson, told. “He called me.”
The report added the following.
“According to Marilyn, Rossdale unleashed an emotional hour-long monologue about how his former lover was responsible for the breakdown of his marriage to Stefani.
“Marilyn claimed he ranted about, ‘the way everything is my fault’ in an conversation that quickly became heated. ‘Because I did an interview [about the affair] … and everything from then on is all my fault.’
“And I’m listening to all this. He said ‘You’re getting all worked up,’ and I said ‘Out of two of us, who’s the one screaming?’ He went on and on.”
Marilyn added that Gwen wants Gavin “to be something that he’s not” and said she felt sad for both Gavin and Gwen as well as their children.
There had been signs that the couple was in trouble. Back in January, even before she allegedly found out about the Mindy Mann affair, Gwen appeared to get choked up while talking about the marriage.
“If I look back on the whole thing, the one thing that’s been constant is that we both want the same thing,” she said on the Today show in January (via Radar Online). “We both want to be married. We both want to be good parents, and so I feel really proud of what we’ve done together… You’re gonna get me crying!”
But Gavin Rossdale may have also been threatened by his wife’s success. In an interview with Rolling Stone, he said his wife’s career “keeps you in check at the house.”
“You might come in with two of something, and she’s got 12 of something. You can never get over-excited, there’s something about that,” he said.
Despite all the rumors, neither Gwen Stefani nor Gavin Rossdale has not confirmed a relationship with nanny Mindy Mann.
