THEY ANNOUNCED THEIR SHOCK SEPARATION IN AUGUST, but after reports emerged last week claiming Gavin Rossdale had been cheating on his wife, Gwen Stefani, for three years with the family nanny, there’s No Doubt their 13-year marriage is over for good. Last week it was revealed that Gwen, who is now dating country music star Blake Shelton, discovered her husband had been having an affair with their Australian nanny – and Gwen lookalike – Mindy Mann. Gwen found out about the infidelity after one of her other nannies allegedly discovered inappropriate images on the family iPad, which was also used by the couple’s three children, Kingston, nine, Zuma, seven, and 20-month-old Apollo. Gwen is believed to have confronted her husband about the images and the alleged affair back in February – though the allegations have only just come to light.
Speaking to LA’s 102.7 KIIS FM last week, the 46-year-old said, “My life blew up in my face in February – the day after the Grammys. I feel like I don’t have anything to hide. I was married for a long time and now I’m not. It was a shock.” She then hinted the pair tried to work through it, saying, “You go through the whole process of trying to see what you’re going to do next.” Gwen added that writing her new track, Used To Love You, helped her through the marriage breakdown. She added, “When you know other people are in the same world, you can connect with them. They understand what you’re going through.

I lost my way but now I’m finding my way back.” Despite it all coming to a head in February, sources say Gwen had been wary of Mindy since Gavin hired her back in 2008. An insider said last week, “If Gwen would eat something or do a workout or get a new handbag, Mindy would do the same thing. Gwen thought it was weird.” It was also rumoured last week that Gavin left Gwen in hospital shortly after she gave birth to Apollo, in February 2014, to be with Mindy.
The report also alleged that Mindy would take their children to see Gavin while he was on tour and have sex with him while the kids were asleep. However, despite the sordid claims, Gwen paid tribute to her family for getting her through the crisis. She added, “It’s hard when you have children and you need to protect them. I have my family and I’m very, very, close to my parents and my brother and sister-in-law.” She also thanked her team on the US Voice, where she works alongside new beau Blake, telling them tearfully, “You guys are saving me.” Meanwhile, a source said Gavin was dealing with the rumours “as best he can”
