High-profile women often go to great lengths to say that they don’t have a nanny – so it’s doubly embarrassing when the husband turns out to be having an affair with her.
We don’t know whether “the shocking three-year affair” US Weekly insists singer Gwen Stefani’s husband, Gavin Rossdale, has been having with nanny and Stefani-lookalike, Mindy Mann, is anything more than a provocatively headlined photo collage. But according to the gossip magazine, the liaison was revealed when flirty messages and explicit snaps were accidentally synched to the family iPad. Ouch.
