Celebrities seem perfect with their beautiful faces, toned bodies, successful careers, and everything else they have going for them, but that does not mean that they have the best luck when it comes to their love lives. Even though stars are famous, that doesn’t mean that they have any less chance of getting their hearts broken or getting cheated on. Plus, a lot celebs stick with a dating pool that is full of fellow stars, professional athletes, and other famous people. Why is this so bad? These people are so well known and desirable that they get a lot of tempting offers which can make it hard to stay faithful.
And if stereotypes are to be believed, this seems to be the case when it comes to professional athletes. These dudes have throngs of gorgeous women throwing themselves at them all the time. So even with a super hot celebrity girlfriend, an athlete can give into the temptation of another woman. Not only is it possible but sadly it has happened plenty of times.
Obviously, adultery is wrong no matter what the circumstances may be, celeb or not. It’s just so wild that these stars who are idolized for their success, beauty, and other attributes are not immune to broken hearts and getting cheated on. As hard as it is to believe, being a celebrity is not a guarantee that someone can keep a man. These 11 celebrities got cheated on by professional athletes.
11. Jamie-Lynn Sigler – Mark Sanchez
Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Mark Sanchez had a pretty short-lived romance. Even though they only dated for three months, pretty much every breakup is tough to go through. Apparently they split because Mark Sanchez “has a wandering eye” and it was too much for Jamie-Lynn who is a few years older than the athlete and was looking for something more consistent and serious. He was spotted hanging out with and chatting up a bunch of girls who are not Jamie-Lynn, so he was not viewing their interaction as a serious relationship. At least Jamie-Lynn got out of it early. She deserves attention and respect from whoever she is with: not any of that nonsense.
10. Tyra Banks – Chris Webber
During an episode of Tyra Banks‘s old talk show, she had on guests who were jersey chasing groupies. During the discussion about athletes and their infidelity, Tyra Banks had a personal breakdown and became the focus of the interview. Tyra Banks used to date former NBA star Chris Webber so the episode definitely touched a nerve or two for the supermodel. Tyra started crying and said “I was with my boyfriend for a long time. I couldn’t stay…” The relationship between Tyra Banks and Chris Webber was pretty low key, but it was clear what Tyra had been through based on her response to her guests. She really became vulnerable without having to open up about every single thing that went down.
9. Porsha Williams – Kordell Stewart
When Porsha Williams first appeared on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, she was going by Porsha Stewart because she was married to former football player Kordell Stewart. She was all about being his wife and did whatever she could to cater to his every need. Then, she found out that he was divorcing her when she read about it on Twitter. Since then, Porsha has said that in her relationship she “didn’t know [she] was being cheated on until afterwards.” There was no further information, but there have rumors circulating for years that Kordell Stewart is actually in the closet, so it is a very intriguing situation to say the least.
8. Heidi Klum – Flavio Briatore
I might be stretching the definition of the word “athlete” when it comes to race car driver Flavio Briatore, but it is considered a sport so I think it counts. But anyway, this dude is dumb enough to cheat on Heidi Klum, a smoking hot supermodel. And on top of that he was enough of an asshole to step out on Heidi when she was pregnant with their daughter. What a total scumbag. Thankfully, Heid’s next man Seal stepped up as a father figure to their daughter, but it still had to be so rough getting cheated on during such a vulnerable time. No one deserves what Heidi Klum had to go through.
7. Bridget Moynahan – Tom Brady
The love triangle of Tom Brady, Bridget Moynahan, and Gisele Bundchen has an extremely hazy timeline. Tom Brady left Bridget Moynahan while she was pregnant with their son to date the super model. It is unclear if they were broken up before he got with Gisele, but it is extremely suspect since they were obviously enough of a couple to conceive a child months prior. The whole thing was super scandalous to say the least. People were loving the super hot couple that Tom and Gisele formed and poor Bridget ended up being painted as the cast off in the messy love triangle.
6. Eva Longoria – Tony Parker
This story really broke my heart back in the day. Eva Longoria and Tony Parker were such a public couple. They made such a big deal out of planning their wedding in Paris so it must have felt like a major slap in the face when everyone found out that Tony Parker was cheating on someone who is basically a real-life goddess. To make matters worse, he cheated on his wife with another teammate’s wife. So the whole affair was extremely messy both personally and professionally. Thankfully Eva Longoria immediately left him. She can do so much better.
5. Gabrielle Union – Dwyane Wade
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are no strangers to scandal when it comes to their relationship. Things seem great with them these days, but that perceived happiness did not come easy by any means. The drama turned up even more when Dwyane fathered a child during a “break” from Union. On top of it all, there were rumors of Dwyane having other affairs while dating Gabrielle Union. Even through all the scandal, it seems like these two have made it through to the other side and are enjoying married life together. Hopefully, Dwyane Wade has straightened his ass out and is treating Gabrielle Union the way she deserves to be treated.
4. Cameron Diaz – A-Rod
Alex Rodriguez is a notorious womanizer. With that said, it really isn’t shocking to hear rumors about him cheating on his girlfriend— even if that girlfriend was Cameron Diaz. I guess I was just naive to think that this one would be different and it actually was different, but in a more salacious way. So what went down? According to reports, the baseball star rented a luxury apartment in New York City and “got hookers all the time, usually two at a time, two times a week.” Rumor has it Cameron Diaz just missed two of the hookers by ten minutes when she was on her way to see A-Rod. I don’t understand why anyone would cheat on Cameron Diaz or why someone as hot and successful as Alex Rodriguez would succumb to getting it in with hookers on a regular basis, but that is apparently what happened.
3. Iggy Azalea – Nick Young
If there are not rumors of a professional athlete cheating on his girl, then it is pretty unusual. It’s sad, but true. Iggy Azalea and Nick “Swaggy P” Young have been plagued by rumors of his infidelity for sometime. But the two are now engaged and moving forward with the wedding. Recently, a video surfaced of Nick Young talking to D’Angelo Russell about getting with some 19-year-old girl after a night out at the club and that he could not get with Amber Rose since she’s friends with Iggy. There is no word on what’s going on with their relationship these days, but that video was both embarrassing and hurtful.
2. Kendra Wilkinson – Hank Baskett
Everyone has heard about this story! It was extremely scandalous and everyone really felt bad for Kendra Wilkinson. Her husband, former NFL player Hank Baskett, cheated on Kendra while she was pregnant with their second child. He got with a transexual “model” behind her back and he would not tell her what happened. At first he was not confirming or denying the incident, but the chips really started to stack against him. The woman spoke out and recordings of phone conversations between the two of them leaked and Hank had no choice but to come clean. Somehow, Kendra and Hank have weathered that storm and remain together and seem happy.
1. Khloe Kardashian – Lamar Odom
Poor Khloe! She has really been screwed over when it comes to athlete romances. She has been cheated on by not one, but three different NBA players. Khloe is way too much of a bad b*tch to deserve this nonsense, so I can’t believe that this has happened to her so many times. If you have been watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians from the beginning, you might remember when Kim Kardashian hacked into Khloe’s ex boyfriend Rashad McCants’s phone to find voicemail messages from other women he was messing around with. Then her husband Lamar Odom rapped about cheating on Khloe in an embarrassing video. My poor girl. Maybe she should just stick to rappers and leave the athletes in the past?
