Sure, these celebrities have all the money in the world and their careers have been skyrocketing for the last couple of years. But when it comes to their personal and private life, there’s no denying that they lack self-control — at least as far as staying faithful to their partners is concerned. These 15 celebrities are infamously known to have allegedly cheated on their other halves, which has often resulted in nasty divorce battles and breakups that are played out all over social media and the tabloids. It’s quite funny since some of these famous people didn’t even bother cheating in private; instead, they more or less flaunted their scandalous behavior in front of photographers, and the most stunning thing about that is that their partners still took them back. Find out below which celebrity made this daring move to not only hurt his girlfriend but eventually go on to dump her because he felt a stronger connection with the woman he was hooking up with. Ouch!
15 Zayn Malik
Following his departure from One Direction, it almost seemed as if Zayn Malik was trying to distance himself from everything that he was surrounded by during his time with the group. There had been reports claiming that Zayn was cheating on fiancée Perrie Edwards whilst on the road with One Direction, and while Perrie publicly took the singer back, it was Malik who eventually broke things off with the 22-year-old, stressing that he no longer wanted to be with her. It was evidently clear at that time that Zayn’s alleged cheating affairs had made him more distant towards Perrie, and though she decided to take him back, Malik eventually realized that he was probably cheating on Edwards because he was no longer in love with her.
14 Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cheating affair with Mildred Baena is probably one of the most scandalous stories of 2011. Arnold had an ongoing affair with Mildred, who was hired as the family’s maid, for several decades. It is believed that the actor and his then wife Maria Shriver, had hired Baena in the early ‘90s, and to everyone’s surprise, Mildred would go on to make it known that she was pregnant and needed maternity leave. Maria didn’t make anything of it, she happily awarded her maid with the temporary leave in order to be well rested ahead of the baby’s birth. With that being said, while Mildred continued working for Arnold and his wife, Shriver was never told, nor was she aware, that the baby Mildred had given birth to was, in fact, Schwarzenegger’s son. It eventually came to light in 2011, leading Shriver to file for divorce almost immediately after the revelation.
13 Kim Kardashian
Kim Kardashian has found herself in several cheating affairs, but her most memorable one would probably her alleged affair with Kanye West just weeks after marrying Kris Humphries. The NBA star, along with Amber Rose, who was dating Kanye at the time, both stated that Kim and Ye were hooking up with one another behind their backs — and both of their partners eventually found out and were devastated by it. Kanye had reportedly told Kim that he wanted to be with her and that marrying Humphries was a mistake. It’s funny because just weeks after this conversation reportedly happened, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris, stating that the relationship wasn’t working out due to their rushed plans in getting married. It was a measly excuse, and Amber Rose actually confirmed that Kim was cheating on her husband with the socialite’s then boyfriend, evidently causing friction between her and Kanye.
12 Lamar Odom
Lamar Odom had a rough year in 2013. In October of that very same year, many outlets speculated whether the NBA star was dealing with a drug problem. At that time, everything was still alleged, but sources close to the situation were reporting that Lamar was cheating on Khloe Kardashian with multiple women at a home he rented in downtown Los Angeles. Drugs, partying, alcohol and women were the only thing on Lamar’s mind, which would go on to see him lose his placement with the NBA team he was playing with at the time. In December, Khloe confirmed the reports that were at one point just rumors, stressing that she had filed for divorce from Lamar, making it clear that her husband had put her through things that couldn't be overlooked and forgiven. The couple has remained cordial, but Khloe vows to never get back with Lamar.
11 Kristen Stewart
Kristen Stewart had quite the year in 2012. She had been promoting her latest movie Snow White and the Huntsman with her director Rupert Sanders, and literally within weeks following the worldwide premiere, photos of Kristen and Rupert kissing suddenly emerged. The twosome are seen kissing and hugging in endless snapshots of the twosome, and one should note that this was all going down while Stewart was still in a relationship with Robert Pattinson. Rupert was also married at the time to Liberty Ross, who would go on to file for divorce from him, but Robert actually took Kristen back. Well, at least for a year. The actor was then said to have been so overwhelmed by the cheating affair, he was finding it hard to trust Kristen again, which eventually caused him to breakup with her for good. The two haven’t spoken since their last split, but Robert has happily moved on to British-singer FKA Twigs. They’ve been together for over two years now.
10 Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck’s name was all over the tabloids in 2015 for the infamous (and alleged) affair he had with the family’s nanny, Christine Ouzounian. Well, it’s hard to say whether the affair is alleged since many credible outlets have confirmed that this really did happen — on top of that, Ben’s soon-to-be ex-wife Jennifer Garner, has also hinted at a cheating affair during the time of their marriage in an interview with Vanity Fair. Reports claimed Ben was hooking up with Christine, but the most disrespectful part of the story came when sources alleged the actor was cheating on Jennifer at the couple’s home in Pasadena, California. So in other words, Affleck was so reckless with his supposed cheating, he didn’t even care about whether he could get caught by Garner at their house. Then again, their $40 million has over 8 bedrooms and is quite massive — I can definitely see why and how the actor could never be caught when living in such a huge property.
9 Jay Z
Jay-Z was the topic of discussion following the release of Beyonce’s highly anticipated album Lemonade. The singer, who allegedly dedicated the entire record to Jay and his alleged cheating scandals over the years, seemed to have gotten fed up with the endless attention that surrounded her marriage and the cheating affairs that have supposedly happened over the years. And, well, Beyonce pretty much lays everything on the table as she describes moments feeling like her husband wasn’t paying her no attention; his mind was focused on “Becky with the good hair,” who he would be with all throughout the night, come home in the morning and act distant towards the singer. In one of the songs, however, Beyonce stresses that, “If you try this s**t again, you gone lose your wife,” heavily insinuating that Jay has been given one last chance.
8 Rita Ora
Rita Ora had been trying to make a name for herself in America back in 2012 through the work of her music, but thanks to her ex-boyfriend Rob Kardashian, she received all sorts of attention in the States, yet for all the wrong reasons. At the end of 2012, having dated Rita for a year, Rob infamously took to his Twitter account and claimed that Ora and him were no longer together because the TV personality became aware of the supposed fact that the singer had cheated on him with over 20 men in the course of just one year, which is pretty disgusting, right? Kardashian went on to make further allegations against Rita, slamming the singer for aborting their baby and continuing to sleep around with multiple men while he was in Los Angeles. Their long-distance relationship clearly wasn’t working out, and Rita’s only response to all of this mess was that Rob just seemed hurt that she no longer wanted to be with him — and that was pretty much all of the story, she claims.
7 Ashton Kutcher
Demi Moore was left heartbroken when she found out that her ex-husband Ashton Kutcher, was cheating on her with two women… on the day of their anniversary. There had been rumors circulating regarding Ashton’s affairs with girls outside of his marriage, and Demi was said to have been blindsided by it the entire time. But when photos began to surface on the Internet, it was pretty clear that Ashton had been hooking up with other people while Demi was busy working on several movies at the time. Once the scandal hit the Internet, it wasn’t long before Moore separated herself from Ashton, and while the actor supposedly tried to mend things with the Hollywood star, the two eventually both decided to call it quits and divorce. Ashton would then go on to date Mila Kunis, who he is now married to — and supposedly expecting his second child with. Meanwhile, Demi has remained single, having dated a couple of younger men since her split from Ashton, but nothing that would form into an actual relationship.
6 Eddie Cibrian
Eddie Cibrian was more or less a womanizer, claims his ex-wife Brandi Glanville, who was devastated to learn that her husband had been cheating on her with LeAnn Rimes. But from there, it only got worse. After the affair hit the tabloids, Brandi wanted an explanation from Eddie as to why he would cheat on her with another woman when he has a family at home. Cibrian’s response was rather coldhearted, making it clear that he just wasn’t happy with Brandi, before making it known that he not only wanted to leave and divorce her, Eddie also wanted to move in with LeAnn. All of those things can turn a woman crazy. To be cheated on and then be told that your husband wants to leave and file for divorce because the woman he has been hooking up with has told him she wants to be with him — that’s a lot to deal with for anybody raising two children, don’t you think? Brandi and Eddie have had a rather frosty relationship over the years, which has also seen LeAnn and the reality star feud over the most childish things on social media. So all in all, there’s not a chance that these three will ever be able to get along. But then again, can you blame Brandi Glanville for being so annoyed with the whole situation?
5 Scott Disick
Scott Disick has actually found himself in endless cheating scandals — many of which were actually true. Last year, Scott was infamously seen flying out to another country with a mysterious woman. Many just assumed it was probably a female friend, but when the twosome began sharing kisses with one another, it was clear that there was more to the situation. Well, reports alleged that Kourtney Kardashian and Scott were actually still together when the photos emerged, meaning that Disick was hooking up with other chicks behind Kourtney’s back. And while one would think he’d have the audacity to cheat in private, he was literally flaunting the woman to all the photographers taking photos of him. How classy.
4 Brad Pitt
Any way you want to look at the situation between Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie, it’s clear that the award-winning actor was messing with Angie behind his wife’s back. So while Jennifer was gearing up to film the final episode of Friends, Brad had been shooting his latest movie with Jolie, titled Mr & Mrs. Smith. It was a box office hit that led to Brad developing off-screen chemistry with the actress, who he eventually told he’d be leaving Jennifer for. It was also said that Jennifer wasn’t ready to have children, which was the deciding factor for Pitt to ditch Aniston and get with the woman he slowly but surely was beginning to have feelings for. So he ditched Jennifer, got with Angie, and within a couple of years, the couple had multiple children — biological and adopted.
3 Kobe Bryant
How could I not mention Kobe Bryant in this list? Kobe was infamously known to cheat on his wife, Vanessa, back in the day. And when I say back in the day, I’m referring to the early 00’s. Endless women came forward claiming they had slept with the athlete while Vanessa was busy taking care of the kids, and she was so devastated, she geared up papers to file for divorce. Kobe managed to win her over on numerous occasions — well, every time someone would come forward saying they had bedded the retired basketball player, Vanessa would threaten him with a divorce because she already knew the allegations were true. Here’s the thing, Vanessa and Kobe did not sign a prenuptial agreement when they married, meaning that Vanessa could walk away with close to $100 million if she was to pull through with the idea of ditching Kobe for good. Now, you know why Kobe was so desperate to stay with her. I’m sure he loves her, but having to give away $100 million would definitely hurt him also.
2 Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson had made a name for herself for saying some of the dumbest things on her reality show Newlyweds, alongside then husband Nick Lachey. It was dumb but super entertaining to watch. Like that one time she couldn’t tell the difference between fish and chicken — do you remember? Anyway, leading up to her divorce from Nick, it was believed that Lachey filed for the legal papers because he allegedly found out that Simpson was hooking up with other Hollywood men behind his back. He must’ve been positive that this was happening, otherwise he wouldn’t have pulled through with the divorce. You gotta be certain when you’re going to accuse someone of cheating. So the couple ended up divorcing and Jessica went on to date several famous men including John Mayer. Was he the one she might’ve been hooking up with during her marriage to Nick?
Tyga and Kylie Jenner’s relationship ended last month when the reality star allegedly learned that she was being cheated on by the rapper. Tyga, who was linked to dozens of women, constantly had girls coming forward alleging that he had slept with them during his romance with Kylie, which supposedly made Jenner feel very insecure and paranoid. Eventually, her family was said to have told her to dump Tyga, stressing that she didn’t need the drama in her life — especially since she’s only 18-years-old. Kylie agreed and dumped Tyga, but according to sources close to the situation, the two have remained friends since they often hang around with the same group of people.
