Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani previously appeared to be the ideal couple. When they got married in 2002, they were both at the pinnacle of their demanding careers—he with Bush and her with her band, No Doubt—but they managed to keep their romance going. Kingston, 15, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 7, were born during their 13-year marriage.
What went wrong, then? Months after Stefani requested a divorce (via People), US Weekly published a startling revelation in November 2015 that claimed Stefani decided to end her marriage because she discovered that Rossdale was having an affair with their nanny, Mindy Mann.
An informant claims that one of the couple’s other nannies discovered explicit text messages between Rossdale and Mann on their family’s iPad, which was connected to Rossdale’s account. Some of the communications included nude images of Mann and promises to meet up for sex.
Rossdale is said to have initially denied having an affair, but he eventually admitted to it, according to reports, which “totally devastated” Stefani. A source said, “She was ashamed, enraged, and embarrassed.”
Gwen Stefani Referred to Her Divorce from Gavin Rossdale as “pain.”
Gwen Stefani refused to confirm the rumors of Gavin Rossdale’s alleged affair during an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine for their September 2016 issue, but she did share that she underwent months of torment after their breakup.
Stefani said at the time that “nobody knows the specifics about what occurred with Gavin other than my parents, the people involved, and anyone they told.” She further claimed, “If I could actually tell you what occurred, no one would believe me. I was tortured for months and months.”
Rossdale acknowledged that his most embarrassing moment involved “the grotesque and disproportionate specter of the breakdown of my marriage” to Stefani in a July 2020 interview with The Guardian.
We spent 20 years together, which is quite amazing in and of itself, he added. “An entire lifetime. She continues to impress me. We have three wonderful children and it has been a wonderful 20 years. There were many benefits, and they will gradually become more clear ” (via People).
