Mindy Mann, the former nanny allegedly at the center of Gwen Stefani's divorce from Gavin Rossdale, was spotted out for the first time since the cheating allegations first made news.

Multiple sources have reported that Gavin Rossdale cheated on the No Doubt front woman with Mindy Mann.

Mindy Mann was often spotted wearing hand-me-downs from Gwen Stefani, which likely served to add insult to injury after Stefani learned of her husband's actions with the nanny. She reportedly left town for a few days when news of the affair hit the media.

E! News reported last week that Gwen Stefani's suspicions about something going on between Rossdale and Mindy Mann were confirmed when another nanny found texts and photos on the family iPad that Mindy sent Gavin. Gavin's text messages were attached to the iPad, in which the two talked about meeting up for sex.

"The nanny told Gwen everything," the source said, adding that Gwen "immediately confronted Gavin and he tried to deny everything once again. He had a story that he was just flirting, but this time Gwen and seen it with her own eyes and didn't believe it. She couldn't get past it and was devastated this was going on right under her nose. She asked Gavin to leave and knew the marriage was over."

This all went down the day after the Grammy Awards. Three months after announcing she was divorcing, she shared that the "major event" that transpired the day after the Grammys resulted in her life "blowing up" in her face, and also inspired her new song, "Used to Love You."

Mindy Mann is from Australia. She is no longer employed by Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale. A source tells E! that Rossdale has been in touch with Mindy Mann "to make sure she is OK."

Both Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale tried in vain to shield their children from the Mindy Mann situation--preferring instead to prevent them from learning what went on between their father and the former nanny.

Do you think once the dust settles that Gavin Rossdale will take up with Mindy Mann again, or was that simply a three-year fling instead? She's clearly back in town. Is it to see the Bush front man?

Many have remarked on the physical similarities between Mindy Mann and Gwen Stefani.
