Did an iPad help break up Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale's marriage?

The 46-year-old singer and The Voice coach filed for divorce from the 50-year-old Bush frontman in August. A recent report said he had been cheating on her with Mindy Mann, who worked as a nanny for their three boys. She and the estranged pair have not commented about the allegations.

A source told E! News on Thursday that on Feb. 9, a day after she attended the 2015 Grammy Awards by herself, "Gwen's suspicions were confirmed."

"One of the other nannies went to get the iPad for one of the boys and found texts and photos that Mindy had sent to Gavin," the source said. "Gavin's texts were linked to the iPad and could be seen. They talked about meeting up to have sex and she sent naked photos."

Stefani, Rossdale and Mann have also not commented on the reported incident.

"The nanny told Gwen everything," the source said. "She 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."

The source said Rossdale moved out of the family home in Beverly Hills a few weeks later and moved into a property in nearby Bel-Air.

"Gavin is with the kids now and wants to keep things as normal as possible for them," a source close to the Bush rocker told E! News on Thursday. "He is super protective and just wants them to be safe during this difficult time."

Stefani "didn't want the news about the nanny to get out for the sake of her kids," the source said, adding that the singer had begun to tell more of her friends about it over the last few weeks.

Stefani has since moved on since the split and has recently gotten cozy with The Voice co-star Blake Shelton, 39.

Meanwhile, a source in the childcare community has defended the singer and Rossdale's former nanny, telling E! News she has a good reputation in the community as a co-owner of an early learning center.

Mann is a "great person who has great energy and really loves children," the source said.
