Gwen Stefani allegedly believes that Gavin Rossdale was bangin’ the nanny


In the wake of Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s seemingly sudden split, the rumor mill is moving somewhat slowly. I mean, of course TMZ jumped in there right away with the rumor that Gwen finally had enough and that she believes that Gavin was screwing around. But so far… this isn’t Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton, you know? It doesn’t feel like Gavin or Gwen have hired a PR firm to slam their ex. So here are some of the other rumors going around:

Long-time problems. Us Weekly’s sources say that their split “was a long time coming…It only looks sudden, but everything was worked out months ago so paperwork could be filed and the marriage could be ended quickly and easily.” A source basically says what was already widely believed, that Gavin and Gwen were having big problems a few years ago but she got pregnant again and of course that didn’t fix anything long-term. The source says: “Things were rocky before then but they tried to make the marriage work. But it just couldn’t. A lot of the feeling was gone.”

No pre-nup. It’s also being said that Gavin and Gwen do not have a pre-nup, although that wouldn’t really even matter because they’ve been married for 13 years and their main residence is in California. There were always going to be community property laws in play, and Gavin has hired Laura Wasser, the Queen of LA Divorces. My guess is that Gwen probably will have to give Gavin money. She’s worth more than double.

Rumors of infidelities. TMZ already said that Gwen suspected that Gavin was cheating. Lainey at LaineyGossip says “There have long been rumours about Gavin in Hollywood. Rumours about his voracious appetite. Rumours about multiples. This should not be a surprise to anyone.”

Rumors about the nanny. Radar admits that the hot blonde nanny-type from the 2012 photos was Gavin’s sister (although I still question that). Radar now says that Gwen was definitely concerned about Gavin and another nanny. A source says: “She had no other choice. She was very suspicious that Gavin was involved with the nanny. Gavin always denied anything inappropriate but her friends warned her that it seemed like there was something going on.” Sources say Gwen fired the nanny in question. Sources also say that Gavin “was the love of Gwen’s life.” Sad.

    Nannies are awful people. There should be a law against them.

    • MrsB says:

      Yes, if this has taught me anything it is if I ever win the lottery and become rich, never get a nanny!!! ;)

      Seriously though, this one makes me sad. They were the coolest couple years ago. I especially feel for Gwen.

      • Tate says:

        My first thought when I saw this headline was… Glad I can’t afford a nanny. ;-)

      • mimif says:

        I feel for her too. It’s no secret he was her everything and she obviously tried very hard. But, nannies. Even the word nanny is nefarious.

      • NGBoston says:

        Yes, to all of this.

        Have we all had our share of Nanny-Gate scandals this summer. Ugh.

        These particular women in this profession have set back the Women’s Right Movement quite a bit!

        To those with wealth in a position to hire others to care for your children:


      • NUTBALLS says:

        Does no one hire nannies that are older than the parents? What’s up with hiring these young, pretty 20-something nannies that are pretty much expected to sleep with the hot (or douche) dad??

        Why ladies?? Why???

        *waves to mimif*

      • mimif says:

        Hi Sourdough!

      • Miss Melissa says:


        That didn’t stop Arnold, though, did it?

      • Lucky Charm says:

        To those with wealth in a position to hire others to care for your children:

        NGBoston – but would that have stopped Gavin anyway?

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        We decided on another thread that ugly male robot nannies were the only way to go.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        mimif *smooch*

        I’m booking my mileage flights back to Alaska this week (for next July!!). Excited to get back home, run some trails and be a part of Mt Marathon festivities!

        Where have you been, girl? You’d been AWOL from the select posts that I look at. You haven’t been out fishing have you?

        Miss Melissa, you are so right. There’s hope for us all!

      • NUTBALLS says:

        NG Boston–

        I won’t put my children in the care of a male where the risk of sexual assault is higher. Stats don’t lie and females are safer in that regard.

        I like Zwella’s idea though…

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Ummmm…I think Lucky Charm is on to something. I don’t think the cheating was, um, typical.

    • bettyrose says:

      LMFAO! It’s no lie, though.

    • j.eyre says:

      I believe the same powerhouse coalition of actresses that brought us the “You Can’t Take Pictures of my Child That I am Just Casually Strolling Through Known Paparazzi Spots” Law is writing something up to outlaw nannies. However, Gloria Allred has already held a press conference saying that she is defending the Nannies and will fight this nonexistent law until it is thrown out, or the spotlight is cast on another case. The Nannies, conversely, have not actually hired Gloria Allred because they think being outlaws will make them even sexier.

    • Gabriella says:

      I was a nanny from age 19-24 and the mother and I both fit the father’s type. But guess what. Nothing ever happened because neither one of us are assholes. I’m still friends with the family.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      I really really liked these two as a couple. I had high hopes for them. I am so sad. It is seemingly impossible for Hollywood marriages to last. Are there any out there that are hopeful? Nannies are despicable b1thces apparently. Not to mention the dirt bag husbands that flock to them. Ugh.

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      Does no one hire a nanny who is older than the parents?

      : )

      Will & Kate do.

      : )

    • Alyce says:

      I worked as a nanny from ages 24-27 (I had my teaching licence but could make more money nannying…sad but true). Anyway, neighborhood dads would always be overly flirtatious. It’s ridiculous and more than a little creepy.

      Edit to add that my family was great though and the dad was always nice but never inappropriate!

    • laura in LA says:

      (Boy, this Christine sure moves on fast!)

      Hey, let’s make “bangin’ the nanny” some kinda new euphemism for….well, um, getting caught doing anything.

    • vauvert says:

      Whether this is true or not, please do not assume that all nannies are out there to wreck a marriage. I have placed lots of nannies with a lot of upper class families (because yes, generally only the wealthy can afford it) and interviewed hundreds more. I never even sent one to meet my clients if she seemed at all dodgy – and by that I mean I met candidates who were obviously more into their looks or themselves than the job. These ones would never even make it on my roster.
      Most nannies I placed were young and single; many were attractive. I even placed some with single dads and not once did I or my clients have any issues with that. Perhaps this is yet another HW craziness symptom. In the normal world, nannies are not like that.

    • SNAP says:

      The secret to getting a “safe” nanny is to hire a strong sweet old lady that is more of a granny figure ;) then EVERYONE in the family can love her to death as a nurturing part of the family as opposed to a sexual object.

  2. Abbott says:

    Fran Drescher has had a busy week. Heyo!

    Don’t get up guys, I know my way out.

  3. lisa2 says:

    I thought his sister worked as their Nanny for many years. I always saw her with them on outings.

    on another note. You can have more than ONE Love in a life. She has a lot of years ahead. There maybe another.

    • Tate says:

      Gwen is a beautiful, talented woman. I wish her the best. Gavin is an idiot

    • Neah23 says:

      They had at least 4 nannies so maybe it was one of them, if this is true.

    • Liv says:

      I can’t believe that he’s a serial cheater! I always thought he’s a decent guy. Poor Gwen. What a douchebag he is, he’s married with three kids and I assume that Gwen is not the worst of all wives…and still he needs to cheat on her? What’s wrong with him?

    • Susan says:

      This 10000

  4. aims says:

    Not to place blame solely on the nanny. What I don’t understand is why do people who have nannies in their homes, get the hot 22 year-olds? If I ever thought about getting a nanny it would be a Mrs. Doubtfire or close to it. There will be no hot, perky blonde in my house.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      They hire young nannies because they have the energy that taking care of several young children requires. As for the looks, that’s probably just for shallow reasons because they don’t want pap pictures of an ugly one to get out. Like older men that have the hot, young trophy wife to show off, they have hot, young nannies to show off.

    • Loulou says:

      Let this be a lesson to celeb wives- hire the old, frumpy nanny next time.

      • Nephelim says:

        Not exactly a nanny, but…

        Arnold Swarzenegger cheated with the help, and she wasn´t exactly a beauty.

      • Camille (the Original) says:

        Ah yes but she was much younger when they had their affair, so there is that (she wasn’t the age she is now etc).

    • Andrea says:

      How many Mrs doubtfire’s do you think are floating around LA? I think it is more like hot out of work wannabe actresses/actors (but a lot of men would still not be a manny I would think).

    • kj says:

      As a former hot 20 year old nanny, it wouldn’t have occurred to me to screw or screw over the boss. Granted I never worked for Gavin Rossdale… But I still had morals and a hot 21 year old boyfriend.

  5. Hawkeye says:

    Gwen Stefani… oh man… she is so cool, so talented, and giving current nobody Gavin Rossdale the heave-ho is the best thing she could do. Adios to his cheating behind and low-budget plugs.

    • belle de jour says:

      ‘Bangin’ the Nanny’ and ‘Low-budget Plugs’ are begging to be band names.

      • Hawkeye says:

        The serious issue of the day is who is this charlatan doing Hollywood plugs, because Gavin Rossdale should be hiring a personal injury lawyer to sue whoever is responsible for that monstrosity on his head.

  6. V4Real says:

    Was it a male nanny? No, ok, then it’s not true.

    I’m just waiting for everything #hashtag nanny to start trending.

  7. Neah23 says:

    I can’t wait to see if some of the posters here will turn Gavin into a victim like they did with Ben.

    Then again maybe not since people here automatically believed Gavin cheated on Gwen were as with Ben they need proof he cheated, even though he like Gavin had a past of cheating. Even when they got proof ( nanny ) they need pictures.

    • KellyBee says:

      OMG yes, that’s why I stop going into those posts. It’s a sad day when the majority of the Daily Fail posters put the blame where it belongs, to Ben, while not excusing the nanny behavior.

      • Citygirl says:

        There is so much truth in both of these comments. The nanny has been called evey name in the book on this site while Ben been called stupid or a douchebag. He the one who betrayed his wife, then again according to some the nanny betrayed Bens trust.

    • Mixtape says:

      I’m not saying that didn’t happen, but I think it has more to do with how loyal people on here are to Gwen as opposed to Jennifer Garner.

    • Elisa the I. says:

      @Neah23 & Kellybee & Citygirl: THIS. I’m all for good gossip (that’s why I’m obviously on this site), but some of the comments on the nanny threads left me speechless – like a witch hunt!

  8. Shambles says:

    Bangin’ the Nanny

    I loved him,
    But he was bangin’ the nanny
    I need him,
    But he’s out on his fanny
    I miss him,
    But now he lives with his granny
    All because he was bangin’ the nanny
    Bangin’ the nanny
    Bangin’ the nanny

    (new summer anthem for the Garners and Gwens of the world)

  9. Skyblue says:

    I worked as a nanny when I was eighteen for a ridiculously rich upper east-side couple in NYC. Hellish job! Straight out of the Nanny Diaries. Mom was a b*#tch, dad stayed as far away from home as he could, kids were painfully bratty. I didn’t sleep with the dad but did date a rich kid in the building who is now a quasi-famous musician in NYC. Crazy summer!

    • ann says:

      I was a nanny for a family in New Jersey after high school. The mom was a rag also. She didn’t work and spent her days getting her hair and nails done. They only had one daughter. I quit after three months.

  10. sadie77az says:

    Is this the nanny in question? This shot could be innocent, but really doesn’t look that way at first glance.

    • Mixtape says:

      That’s the one who is supposedly his sister.

      • whatevs says:

        This is the first I’ve seen this picture so excuse me if this is a stupid question….. Where does it say it is his sister? Obviously a follow up story somewhere, but I haven’t seen it. Also, it seems I like I see “supposedly his sister” a lot. That seems odd, if it is his sister, should the “supposedly” part go away? Couldn’t it be proven pretty easily? Lastly, unless my brother was about to fall off a cliff or I was while hiking, his hand would never be there! It isn’t a “bad” spot to touch, but for a brother it is uncomfortable and just plain icky. 😱

      • Mixtape says:

        Whatevs, this is just one of many media retractions that came out a couple of years ago apologizing for accusing him of being inappropriate with the nanny when it was his sister: I just said “supposedly” because my comment was based on articles like this, not on Gavin’s many public appearances with his beloved sister. I agree, it’s awkward contact no matter who it is, but they’re hiking and he could be trying to push her forward as the paps are behind them.

  11. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    I feel so bad for Gwen. It was so obvious she adored him. After twenty years together maybe she realized that she deserves better–I hope so anyway.

    I don’t think there will be any custody problems but I am sure Gavin is going to ask for spousal support.

  12. MARKWEER says:

    Monique had a bit in her Queens of Comedy tour where she talked about hiring a Nanny/housekeeper who had to be 70 years old, missing some teeth, couldn’t speak much English and had only two strands of hair on her head–& she still had to leave the house when Monique did. It may have to come to that for some of these poor starlets.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      Maria Shriver should have taken that advice, because her housekeeper’s looks certainly didn’t deter Arnold!

  13. Jeanette says:

    Love the song!

  14. Lucy says:

    This makes me hate love.

  15. GreenieWeenie says:

    Come to think of it, she always did give off a totally insecure vibe. This is a woman who has bleached her roots every three weeks for all of her adult life. She’s never had a half inch of root showing. She talked about how she wears makeup every day so her husband will be attracted to her. I bet she knew about his cheating and whatnot, and it ruined her self esteem.

    Also, I noticed that she didn’t put on weight with this last pregnancy like she did her other two (her first pregnancy she gained a lot of weight). To me, that says stress/anxiety, if when you’re happy you normally put weight on. I feel her, man. I’m a girl who loved him more, too.

    • Andrea says:

      She totally is insecure and you can tell from her lyrics, her looks, her plastic surgery (she has definitely tweaked her nose and had botox), her constant makeup etc. This can grow tiring to have a friend like this, I cannot imagine being a partner to someone like this.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      Ditto! Agree with @Lucy and @ GreenieWeenie.

    • Neah23 says:

      Yes she is, in the past she talk about the first thing she does in the morning is put on makeup and the last thing she does before going to bed is take off her makeup. If you can’t be your self around your husband then who can you be yourself around.

      • Andrea says:

        People are quick to accuse the man in this scenario described above but I have found really insecure women are their own worst enemies and it usually has nothing to do with what a man says or does. They were wayy insecure prior to coupling up with said man.

    • Esmom says:

      I agree that her look has always struck me as insanely high maintenance, which I always kinda thought stemmed from insecurity. It’s sad that she can’t seem to see her natural beauty.

      • Andrea says:

        Honestly, all the insecure women like Gwen that I know are in and out of relationships—mostly because they get dumped a lot or dump men they get bored with, so it is a miracle I think she kept him around for 20 years. One in particular is obsessed with aging and looking youthful.

  16. Priscila says:

    Never got why Gwen Stefani was such a big deal, but…I guess it is a question of taste!

    I went to London just once, for 3 days. On the second day, I was at Primrose hill with a friend, checking out what it looked like a grocery store. He was with a camera and he looked at something that caught his attention. Gwen Stefani was just leaving the door at that moment. I looked at her, she smiled when my friend said something with the camera…only to realize my friend was talking and trying to take a picture of a cute dachshund! I shrugged to her, and she stopped smilling….

    • Andrea says:

      This is a cute story. I have a dachshund and I must say, he gets A LOT of attention wherever we go. Too funny the doggie got preference over Gwen. ha

  17. Matador says:

    Untrustworthy nannies are the shark attacks of the Summer of 2015.

  18. meme says:

    What’s with the freaking nannies? Jeesh. I feel for Gwen because I think she adores Gavin but Gavin’s been over it for a while. She’s the superstar in the family.

  19. Andrea says:

    Honestly? Vastly different sex drives can ruin a relationship. I am going through this right now (I have a huge sex drive, my boyfriend has very little of one). We have tried everything short of counseling and it just sucks. I really hate to leave for that reason, but when a relationship lacks passion, it dies a slow death. To be brutally honest, I have cheated on my bf before over this issue described and he knows about it and has forgiven me. Is it possible this may be the case for them except he has LOTS of options on top of that? I have heard rumors for years about him with groupies.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      Different sex drives can be a problem. I am 7 years older than my husband, and after I turned 50, my sex drive just dropped off the charts (as in virtually non-existant). It takes much, much longer to get my engine going, and it almost never starts on its own. I feel bad about it, but I don’t think there is much to be done about it, although I have heard there is a medication you can take that can crank it back up. I need to check into that I guess…That is something to take into consideration when marrying someone with a big age difference.

      • Andrea says:

        My boyfriend is only 38—4 years older than me. So age isn’t a factor. Honestly, we have been together 8 years and this has been a problem for the past 5-6. I think it partly has to do with I gained 40 lbs about 5 years ago and it has been very hard to get off due to an ovarian condition. I am working out a lot now and toning up, gradually losing weight and I just know once I lose it, like many others stories I have heard, i will be gone. For some reason, I have heard many stories of women leaving their husbands/partners after they lose weight, perhaps because they felt underappreciated when they were slightly overweight.

    • PoliteTeaSipper says:

      I have the same problem you do. If I had known that my husband wanted a roommate relationship and all the benefits of marriage but no sex, I never would have married him in the first place. I have deeply satisfying platonic and sexless relationships with my male friends. I picked my husband to be different. I’m sick of him holding me to an existence completely devoid of intimacy and once I can afford it I’ll probably divorce him. Lying about your libido is just as serious as lying about any of the other deal breakers (kids, money). I am 32 and my husband is 34.

  20. Andrea says:

    I also wonder what Lainey knows or has heard??

  21. Bonnie says:

    I’m not saying the nanny isn’t to blame, but let me just point this out….. An affair takes TWO PEOPLE. he is a douche, she is a douche. There were obviously problems in the marriage. I feel bad for the kids.

  22. Nephelim says:

    Another affair with the nanny? how cliché!
    Hollywood needs to improve their sex scandals …


  23. L says:

    I kinda always knew I’d end up your ex/girlfriend..err wife.🎶

  24. Anon says:

    I am waiting to see if just maybe Gwen is not so squeaky clean as perceived .. Now won’t that shake the world.. prepared..just saying..

    • Ronda says:

      Yeah its weird that in all the scandals we are led to believe the men are solely to blame and the only people cheating. personally i think Jennifer and Gwen just did it with guys with a lot of status that dont want to be in the papers and are discreet.

  25. laura in LA says:

    “Gavin, get off the babysitter!”

  26. IfUSaySo says:

    This is in NO WAY taking the blame off nanny screwing husbands but DANG… I would never hire a nanny who was young/pretty. Maybe that is wrong but marriage, in general, has difficult periods. You will have days of feeling annoyed, gross, and of just wanting alone time. Add kids and some days you will not be the “perfect wife” and that is normal. Whats not normal is a beautiful 22 year old in your home who will play the role of the happy, cheerful, energetic and fun mom substitute. That just plays up the contrast between “boring old windbag wife” and “beautiful hot fun girl” I think that just leads to trouble even with a great husband. I don’t care who your husband is, he is going to look. He will probably never act on it, but if there is another woman in your home, he is gonna feel it.

  27. Cinderella says:

    I have the feeling Gwen put up with decades of his cheating with both genders. I also believe she really, really loved him.

  28. Ankhel says:

    “I am hurt. A nanny on both your houses!” William Shakespeare – mostly.

  29. lisa says:

    are all babysitters called nannies now?

    i thought a nanny was someone who went to some sort of nanny school and had certification, or do i watch too much tv?

    • Andrea says:

      Nanny I took it were certified (some have at least a BA) and also are either live-in or a M-F type deal. Babysitter are occasional sitters who come over for a couple hours for date nights. That’s how I’ve always distinguished the two that is.

  30. laura in LA says:

    So does this mean we’re going to have another week of tabloid revelations culminating in unsurprising photos from Gwen/Gavin’s nanny, too?

    And with Venus retrograde, I wonder who we’ll find out was bangin’ the nanny next…

    Anyone wanna place bets?

  31. Lemonpesto says:

    Whatever, team Gwen, he is past his prime anyway.
