6. She’s a Copy Cat

Mindy not only looks like Gwen, but she also went out of her way to dress like her, eat like her, do the same workouts as her and buy the same accessories as her. Gwen thought it was weird. Mindy also went so far as to post pictures on social media that showed her dressed in similar ways to Gwen.

5. She Worked for Gavin and Gwen for 7 Years

According to sources, Gavin and Mindy had been having an affair for about three years. It reportedly began in 2012 and lasted until 2015. In 2012, Gavin and Mindy were caught getting a little too close by the paparazzi. He was photographed with his hand on the small of Mindy’s back during one of their hikes with Kingston and Zuma. Gavin claimed that she had almost fallen over and he was trying to steady her. Yeah. Right.

3. She and Gavin Would Sext

Mindy sent Gavin several nude photos via text and they also scheduled their hookups via text as well. When Gavin synched his phone to the family’s iPad, these photos and texts were discovered by one of his and Gwen’s other nannies, who then alerted Gwen to the situation.

2. She Was Fired in February

When Gwen saw the texts and nude photos, she confronted Gavin and fired Mindy. Gavin claimed that nothing sexual had happened between him and the nanny, calling it a “flirtation.” However, he confessed a short time later and then Gwen filed for divorce.
