It is a well known fact that a huge percent of people in relationships cheat on their partners. It’s human nature and no one is really to blame. In fact, some say that humans as a species are not even supposed to be monogamous. And that most people cheat, they just stay quiet about it, not wishing to cause pain to their loved ones.
And of course, we know that most celebrities also cheat. And it is harder for them to hide their extra-marital affairs because they are constantly in the spotlight. Their personal lives are constantly discussed in newspapers, magazines and online portals. Their terrible decisions are dissected by millions of people.
Still, the fear of being caught does not stop celebrities from cheating. If anything, it might even spur them on – the possibility of getting caught just makes the whole thing more exciting. Of course, when celebrities do get caught it’s not fun at all. Neither the cheater nor the cheater’s loved ones revel being in the spotlight. Especially when it turns out that the cheater in question had an affair with the nanny.
15 Ben Affleck Had An Affair With The Nanny Who Was Later Fired As A Result

It’s not great for your kids for [a nanny] to disappear from their lives. I have had to have conversations [with my children] about the meaning of scandal.”
