Gavin Rossdale has reportedly started dating Tiger Woods' ex-wife Elin Nordegren.

The Bush frontman’s love life has been on the quiet side since he split with ex-wife Gwen Stefani in August 2015, amid rumours he had been unfaithful.

While his former spouse was quick to move on with her The Voice colleague Blake Shelton, 50-year-old Gavin has kept a lower profile. Now friends tell Us Weekly that former model Elin has put an end to his dry spell, and the pair are said to have met up in Los Angeles recently.

The date was set up by a mutual friend, with a source close to Elin claiming the Swedish beauty is keen to make a go of the romance, despite living on the other side of the country in Florida.

“Elin flies to L.A. on her private plane a lot,” the insider commented to the magazine. “They want to make it work.”

Both stars are parents to children of similar ages, with Gavin sharing Kingston, 10, Zuma, eight, and Apollo, two, with Gwen, and Elin and Tiger co-rearing Sam, nine, and seven-year-old Charlie. Gavin also has an adult daughter, British model Daisy Lowe.

While Gavin and Gwen never confirmed the cheating rumours, Gwen has spoken at length about the “earthquake” end to her 13-year marriage.

Elin was on the other side of cheating allegations when she split from golfer Tiger in 2010, after it was revealed the sportsman had been unfaithful multiple times. The pair divorced in August of that year, with Elin receiving a $100 million settlement (£75 million).

Gavin and Elin are yet to comment on the romance rumours, but Gavin has been updating his fans with music news. He uploaded a snap of a recording studio to his Instagram account with the caption: "Bringing it to you. (heart emoji)."
