Gavin Rossdale, Elin Nordegren Go On a First Date

Hide your golf clubs, Gavin Rossdale. Elin Nordegren (ex-wife of Tiger Woods) and the rocker (ex-husband of Gwen Stefani) went on a first date in L.A. on Saturday, August 27, a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

Apparently they hit it off, too. Set up by mutual friends, the Florida-based mom of Sam, 9, and Charlie, 7, and the dad of Kingston, 10, Zuma, 8, and Apollo, 2 are planning round two. “Elin flies to L.A. on her private plane a lot,” says the source. “They want to make it work.”

The spark is new, but they already have something in common. Both the British singer, 50, and the Swedish former model, 36, have endured public cheating scandals in the past, though from different sides. Us exclusively revealed in November that Rossdale had cheated on his wife of 13 years, Stefani, with the couple’s nanny Mindy Mann. While pregnant with their youngest son, Stefani discovered explicit texts between Rossdale and Mann on their shared iPad. They split in August 2015.

Six years earlier, in 2009, Nordegren made headlines when news broke that then-husband Woods had been unfaithful. The couple finalized their divorce in August 2010.

After their split, Nordegren dated billionaire Chris Cline for a year, and Woods was in a relationship with skier Lindsey Vonn until May 2015.

Stefani, meanwhile, bounced back with country crooner boyfriend Blake Shelton, who also went through a divorce. “There was so much of an earthquake in my life. How did I survive that?” Stefani told Us of her divorce from Rossdale on June 2 in NYC. “ I don’t know, but here we are and my life is full of so many blessings.”
