Gwen Stefani Divorce: Gavin Rossdale Steps Out With Mindy Mann To Make Her ‘Jealous And Upset’?
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s marriage came to an end in August, 2015, and months later, rumors of an affair between Rossdale and their former nanny, Mindy Mann, began to swirl. Although the couple has not yet confirmed, or denied, the reports of Rossdale’s relationship with Mann, they have continued to keep in touch as Rossdale’s divorce from Gwen Stefani continues.

On February 27, as Gwen Stefani flew out of Los Angeles to attend a Blake Shelton concert in Kansas City, the Daily Mail shared photos of Rossdale spending time in Los Angeles with his and Gwen Stefani’s three sons, Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo. In the photos, Rossdale was seen holding his youngest boy, Apollo, who recently turned two, and in one picture, Apollo was seen giving his father a kiss on the cheek.
Meanwhile, Gwen Stefani embarked on what appeared to be a dramatic trip to Kansas City. After missing her flight, as Entertainment Tonight revealed, the 46-year-old mother of three was able to catch another flight, along with sister-in-law Jenny Stefani, with a layover in Phoenix, which luckily got her to her boyfriend in time for his show.
Gwen Stefani began dating Shelton during filming on The Voice Season 9, which aired last year on NBC. The relationship appeared to have been kept secret for some time, but ultimately, the pair chose to confirm the news, and ever since, they’ve been extremely vocal about their admiration for one another.
Although Gwen Stefani is clearly quite happy with Shelton, she’s reportedly caught wind of her soon-to-be ex-husband’s latest outing with Mann.
“[Gwen Stefani] 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. When she heard about she just rolled her eyes. Too much drama and she’s not going there,” an insider told Hollywood Life last week.
As seen in the photos above, Rossdale and Mann were photographed having a meal at a restaurant in North Hollywood, California, which isn’t far from Mann’s day care center, Pint Sized Kids. However, while Mann was previously in charge of caring for Rossdale’s boys, they were nowhere to be seen during the couple’s date.
Despite the photos, which appear to confirm that something is going on between Rossdale and Mann, the source claimed she’s staying focused on the happier parts of her life, including her boyfriend (Shelton), her kids, and her upcoming return to The Voice.
“[Gwen Stefani] is in the best place she’s ever been and she’s not for one minute going to let her ex get to her,” the source said. “She’s not wasting her time or energy on either of them, even though she feels like the two of them (Gavin and Mindy) meeting in public is just a slap in the face and completely inappropriate.”
The Daily Mail confirmed Rossdale and Mann remained at the restaurant for an hour and a half and left together.

Rossdale and Mann were also believed to have seen each other publicly in December of last year, just one month after reports of an affair surfaced, but at that time, Rossdale and Mann weren’t photographed together. Instead, the Daily Mail shared photos of Rossdale’s vehicle at Mann’s day care center, revealing eyewitnesses saw him inside.
Gwen Stefani returns will return to The Voice for Season 10. The new season premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC.
