World-known celebrities know that they need to be careful when it comes to their personal lives. They are known worldwide and thus they are unable to do things that normal human beings can get away with. For example, celebrities find it much harder to cheat on their partners.
They know that they are often followed by paparazzi and understand that their picture might be taken at any moment. Thus, if celebrities do cheat they have to be really careful. They look for hideaway spots that might be untraceable and they wear ridiculous disguises to fool the media.
However, most paparazzis are pros at their job and will do anything to get good pictures that will reveal a juicy story. As a result, many cheating celebrities are unable to hide their affairs. And when pictures of them getting cozy and intimate with someone other than their partner leak, they are in huge trouble. Often, the leaked pictures end their marriage or their long-term relationship. Plus, they are embarrassed in front of the whole world.

No one was supposed to find out about their affair. But when the pictures of the pair emerged, the whole world suddenly knew. Twilight fans were especially heartbroken by Stewart’s betrayal. Stewart later called the affair a “momentary indiscretion” and said that it “jeopardized the most important thing in my life.” Sanders was also very apologetic to his wife and said – “I am praying that we can get through this together.”
14 Ashton Kutcher And Sara Leal
Six years ago a photo of Ashton Kutcher in a car with a woman named Sara Leal was leaked. Naturally, the photo caused quite a shock. And then an uproar. After all, the leaked photograph was evidence that Ashton Kutcher was having an affair while he was married to the actress Demi Moore.
The leaked photograph resulted in Kutcher’s and Moore’s marriage ending. So Kutcher clearly lost out big time by having the affair. But the publication of the affair was not much fun for Leal either. She said that as a result of the affair she lost her job. Plus, her family stopped speaking to her.

Of course, both Disick and Bartoli claimed that nothing happened between them. According to them, they are just friends. A source close to Bartoli has said – “Chloe is adamant that nothing happened between her and Scott in Europe. She’s telling friends that there is no way, that he’s like a brother to her. He was super drunk the whole time and she took care of him, yes. But she says the photos are misleading... She insists she and Scott are just best friends.”
12 Zayn Malik And Lauren Richardson
When Lauren Richardson posted a photo of herself and the singer Zayn Malik embracing in Thailand on the internet she obviously did not anticipate the hate storm it would cause.

Obviously, that didn’t really work and the pair separated.
Richardson, however, did quite well out of the whole affair. Even though the whole world seemed to hate her she managed to get a break on Love Island.

However, at the time Aldean was married to Jessica Ann Ussery. The pair had two children.
When the photos leaked, Aldean said – “The truth is that I screwed up. I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand, and acted inappropriately at the bar.” Right after the affair it seemed that Aldean’s and Ussery’s marriage might survive. After all, they were married for 11 years! But soon after, the pair split up and by 2014 Aldean and Kerr were engaged.
