Gwen Stefani’s Ex-Husband Gavin Rossdale Is Dating Elin Nordegren, Former Wife Of Tiger Woods: ‘They Want To Make It Work’
Gavin Rossdale is reportedly moving on from his 13-year marriage with Gwen Stefani just one year after the couple confirmed they were parting ways.
As Stefani continues to flaunt her romance with boyfriend Blake Shelton, which began last November, a source claims Gavin Rossdale recently went out on a date with Elin Nordegren, the scorned ex-wife of Tiger Woods, after being set up by mutual friends.
On September 7, Us Weekly broke the news of the alleged new couple and joked that Gavin Rossdale might want to hide his golf clubs.

According to the magazine’s report, Gavin Rossdale and Elin Nordegren enjoyed their first date on Saturday, August 27, in Los Angeles and are now planning to meet up for a second date after reportedly hitting it off with one another.
“Elin flies to L.A. on her private plane a lot,” a source told the magazine. “They want to make it work.”
In 2009, Elin Nordegren made headlines after news broke that her then-husband, Tiger Words, had cheated on her with multiple women during their marriage. After reportedly catching her husband cheating by text messaging his alleged mistress, Rachel Uchitel, as Woods, Nordegren threw Woods’ phone at him, chipping his tooth, and proceeded to chase him out of their home with a golf club. As the New York Post reported years later, Woods attempted to escape his then-wife’s wrath by driving away in his Cadillac Escalade — but he didn’t get far.
After Woods had crashed his vehicle into a tree after first hitting a fire hydrant, neighbors called police after discovering the golfer unconscious, bloody, and snoring. Although Nordegren claimed Woods had simply crashed his vehicle while she was inside their home, authorities were skeptical and would not allow her to accompany him during his transport to the hospital.

While Gavin Rossdale’s own marriage didn’t end in violence, it did end with major drama as he was accused of cheating on Gwen Stefani with their former nanny, Mindy Mann. In November, just a short while after Stefani and Shelton confirmed their romance, Us Weekly shared a report claiming Stefani had caught wind of Gavin Rossdale’s affair with Mann after speaking to a fellow staff member and going through old messages on the family’s iPad.
“Back in February, Stefani, 46, uncovered Gavin Rossdale’s long-term affair with Mann, who cared for the couple’s three sons,” Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 2, the magazine reported. “At the time, the No Doubt frontwoman discovered explicit texts between Rossdale and the nanny — including nude photos of Mann and their plans to meet up for sex — on the family’s iPad.”
Following the discovery of the shocking text messages, Mann was fired but because Gavin Rossdale insisted that his interaction with the woman was only “flirtation,” Stefani chose to remain in their marriage for months. Then, after Gavin Rossdale allegedly came clean about the affair months later, Stefani filed for divorce.
Gavin Rossdale’s admission “completely devastated her,” a source told the magazine in November. “She was mortified, livid, and embarrassed.”
Since his split from Stefani, Gavin Rossdale has been co-parenting his three kids with his ex-wife and continuing to travel the country on tour with his rock band, Bush.
Although Gavin Rossdale hadn’t been linked romantically to anyone since news of his split hit the web, Elin Nordegren was linked to billionaire Chris Cline for one year after her marriage to Tiger Woods came to an official end in 2010.
