Over the years fans of celebs have proven they just can’t get enough of their favorite stars. This has led more paparazzi and media outlets to broadcast what those photographers come across. More photographers means there is less chance that celebs will get away with bad behavior. These guys catch the famous people doing all kinds of naughty stuff, including cheating on their spouses.
But a camera guy isn’t always needed for a wife to find out their hubby has been with someone else. Careless use of a cell phone can leave text messages there for a wife to find or maybe the husband just chose a woman that likes to talk to the press.
There seem to be a few common themes as we read about all the not so smart guys coming up. The nanny is a common issue in celebrity families. So are other actresses. Angelina Jolie is one of the worst offenders as she has been involved in several cheating scandals.
You’ll also learn about the celebrity that lost her hubby to her best friend, one guy cheated on his beautiful wife with one of the ugliest "professionals" of all time and another cheated on his beautiful wife with more than just one woman.
All of the women that have been cheated on here today were cheated on with women far less attractive than they are. So they may have been cheated on but at least they know what the facts are. On an informational note, if you ever reach celebrity status and need a nanny, make sure you hire an ugly one!
15 Jennifer Aniston
When people talk about celebs that were cheated on Jennifer Aniston always comes into the conversation. You have to feel for her because she seems like a pretty good person that has just made some bad decisions in the man department.
When she married Brad Pitt it was a match made in heaven for the media and they couldn’t get enough of the couple. But after four years together Pitt started filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Angelina Jolie and soon the British newspaper, The Sun, started reporting that Jolie and Pitt were seen checking into hotels together on several occasions. Later that year Aniston and Pitt divorced and that was followed up by Pitt and Jolie getting married. That was definitely not an upgrade for Pitt but we just don’t know what happened behind closed doors. However, it could be that he is just a piece of crap.
Everyone knows by now that Jolie and Pitt have divorced over rumors that he was cheating on her as well. Aniston went on to engage in a relationship with Mayer, but he too allegedly cheated on her with a cocktail waitress, a groupie, and a promoter’s assistant. We can only guess but it’s a safe bet that none of them look as good as Jen does.
14 Shania Twain
Shania Twain had been married to Jeff “Mutt” Lange for fourteen years before he stepped out on her. The famous record producer and Twain had combined to make up one of the most powerful duos in all of music for many years. With her talent on stage and his in the studio, they were the poster children for success in the music business. Twain herself has made an unreal amount of money from record sales and tours.
Lange eventually got together with Marie Thiebaud and they ended up getting married. She was Twain’s best friend for many years and she was also a secretary and the manager of their Switzerland chateau for many years. Twain was obviously devastated by the betrayal and it took her a long time to recover. It probably helped when she realized that Thiebaud couldn’t hold a candle to her in the looks and talent department.
Twain ended up marrying Thiebaud’s ex-husband (yes she was married at the time as well) so all seems to have worked out in the end for the country singing legend.
13 Christie Brinkley
Christie Brinkley is in her 60s now and she still looks better than a lot of women half her age or younger. In many circles, Brinkley is called the hottest women to ever have lived so you would think that someone lucky enough to marry her would be content and not stray. After all, it’s not every day you get to marry the hottest women to have ever lived.
But that didn’t stop her ex-husband Peter Cook from stepping out on her. Cook had an affair with Diana Bianchi when she was only eighteen years old. Bianchi worked at a toy store when the affair started. When Cook realized that she may talk he paid her $300,000 of hush money. She took the money, but it didn’t keep her mouth shut and the payoff became public knowledge during the divorce.
Bianchi was recently in the news again as she just recently got married and appears to be doing well. You can imagine a nice $300,000 cash influx never hurts things. She may have been much younger but there is no way that she had looks on the level of Brinkley, at any age.
If you are looking for a pattern Cook’s very next relationship ended in the same manner. It appears he just isn’t a very smart guy.
12 Denise Richards
Denise Richards became an international sex symbol after her appearance in Wild Things and it’s hard to believe that any man that was lucky enough to be with her would look for other women. But when you look at Charlie Sheen and the things that he has done, there aren’t many surprises in the stupid department. Seeing what he went on to do with his life, Richards should consider herself lucky that she got out when she did and she didn’t have to go through a ton more additional heartbreak.
Sheen’s antics have been well documented and when you see him now you have to wonder what Richards ever saw in him back then. Sure he seemed to be a different person back in those days but that’s nothing more than public perception. Nobody really knows what when on away from the cameras.
The first time Sheen cheated on Richards was with one of his assistants. Nobody seems to have any photos of her but you would have to imagine that back then there is no way the assistant looked better than Richards did. There weren’t many women in the world that did so it’s a safe bet to assume.
11 Sienna Miller
Sienna Miller is a beauty that has been involved in a few cheating scandals. It seems to be a pattern for her and she has been on both sides of the fence. She has been the cheatee, as well as the cheater.
She wasn’t married to Jude Law but they were engaged when he started stepping out on her. Daisy Wright was the nanny that was taking care of Law’s kids when he hooked up with her. Wright was very proud of her accomplishment and she sold her story to whoever wanted to hear it. Believe me, that was a pretty high number and suddenly the entire world knew about the affair.
Miller shouldn’t have been surprised though because when she first got together with Law, he was married to Sadie Frost and had three kids with her. Maybe he traded up with Miller but he certainly didn’t get the same results with Wright.
When Miller found out that Law had been sleeping with the nanny, instead of leaving him right away she went on to have her own affair. She very publicly hooked up with Daniel Craig. After that was done she ended the relationship with Law.
10 Sophia Bush
Chad Michael Murray has had a reputation for a long time of wooing the ladies that he works on screen with. That doesn’t usually sit well with any current relationship he is involved with but it doesn’t seem to stop him. There have been many instances of this type of behavior but it seemed that it was coming to an end when he married Sophia Bush.
While filming One Tree Hill the co-stars got together and eventually ended up getting married. All seemed fine until Murray started working on the film House of Wax with Paris Hilton. First of all, you knew the movie wasn’t going to be a box office smash with Hilton involved but that was ok with Murray. He was getting used to those types of results with his flicks. It was the fringe benefits that he had his sights set on. He and Hilton allegedly ended up hooking up and that was the end of his marriage to Bush.
This one didn’t make the front page of the tabloids and isn’t easily verifiable but there was enough evidence for Bush to leave him. If it’s really true that he cheated on Bush with Paris Hilton, it was a major step down for him and a pretty stupid move.
9 Elin Nordegren
Sometimes when couples split up it’s handled in a quiet way. Then sometimes there are those incidents that capture news headlines. When Elin Nordegren was finally able to prove that Tiger Woods was cheating on him she took up golf herself.
She ran Woods out of their Orlando home and then smashed up his car with a golf club. Many dents and broken windows later the couple was the headline of every newscast for the next several days. There had been a lot of rumors about what Woods did when he wasn’t with his wife but there really wasn’t any type of proof to back them up until his wife went through his phone and found everything she needed.
In the following weeks, countless women came forward and admitted to having affairs with Woods. The most notable woman was Rachel Uchitel. but there were also cocktail waitresses, several adult stars (both former and current), prostitutes and just about every stripper in the Greater Tampa area.
You can find photos of most of them online and when you compare them to Nordegren it’s easy to see that any woman he cheated on her with was a definite downgrade. There aren’t many women in the world that could be considered an upgrade to her and none of them were on the list of women that Woods cheated on her with. She got the last laugh though as Woods’ career has been in the tank ever since that fateful day in Orlando.
8 Gwen Stefani
Gwen Stefani was married to Gavin Rossdale for fourteen years and she thought that everything was going just fine. That is until February 9th of 2015. That’s the day that she found out he was banging the nanny. She went through a very rough time dealing with it but when all was said and done she has gotten the last laugh for the most part.
She wrote a song about the breakup called “Used to Love You” and it turned into her very first number one hit. She eventually married Blake Shelton after they met on The View and discovered they were both going through similar ordeals. All didn’t turn into gold for her though as she ended up with joint custody of the children she had with Rossdale, with him having primary care.
That was pretty hard for her to deal with because she wasn’t the one that did anything wrong. She told CNN recently that she still doesn’t understand why that happened, saying "It was so insane because not only did my family break up, but then my kids are taken away like half the time, so that was really like, 'What?! What did I do?'"
Rossdale definitely moved from the major leagues to the minors with his choice of the nanny (Mindy Mann), over Stefani.
7 Katy Perry
Katy Perry hasn’t had a lot of luck in the love department. It seems that she can’t find a guy that wants to be with just her. Maybe if she made better decisions she could find the right one. She married Russell Brand who had long been rumored to be a serial cheater. She knew this coming in so it shouldn’t have been a major surprise to her when the marriage didn’t last very long.
Neither party has publicly admitted that there was any cheating going on but every once in a while there doesn’t need to be a confession because all of the evidence supports it fully. If you didn’t think that Brand was a lowlife because of this, take this next fact into consideration. Perry learned that Brand was divorcing her through a text message. He never even told her what he was doing.
Perry continued her search for love and ended up with John Mayer. Yes, the same guy that cheated on Jennifer Aniston at least three different times. Perry and Mayer were on again off again several different times. Perry found several texts on his phone from other women and eventually grew tired of it and ended the relationship for good.
We already established earlier that Mayer didn’t do well when he cheated on Aniston and the same goes for what he did with Perry. Only now you can lump Russell Brand in with Mayer because cheating on her with whoever he chose, wasn’t a step up at all.
6 Jennifer Garner
Jennifer Garner was married to Daredevil himself, actor Ben Affleck. He has never been one to make good decisions. Out of all the movies he has made only a handful of them have been any good. Maybe even less than that. Those bad decisions have carried over to his personal life when he cheated on Garner with their nanny, Christine Ouzounian.
Garner once told Vanity Fair magazine that the couple had been separated for several months before the public found out about Affleck and the nanny. She added that the nanny scandal had absolutely nothing to do with their divorce. Come on now, we don’t buy that for a single minute. Of course, it did.
Garner comes across as a very nice person from reports about her and she couldn’t have been very happy when she found out what was going on. The couple went from being happy to divorced in a rather quick time frame and we are to believe that it had nothing to do with him banging the nanny? Come on Jen you are a better actress than that!
The nanny is younger than Garner but she certainly doesn’t look better than Garner does. It was just another horrible decision by Affleck as he definitely traded down for the nanny.
5 Princess Diana
Princess Diana was a beautiful woman that was lucky enough to marry into the Royal Family. Prince Charles, who was absolutely nothing to look at, hit the jackpot when he married Lady Di. Now we may not know a lot about the relationship behind closed doors but it certainly looked like the fairy tale stuff that movies are made out of.
That is until Diana revealed on television that Charles had cheated on her with Camilla Parker-Bowles. Camilla and Charles had met many years before he met Diana and the couple was on again off again for many years. It cooled off for a while when he got serious with Diana and eventually married her but after some time had passed he once again found his way back to his former flame in 1986.
Anyone that has ever seen pictures of Camilla knows that Diana looked better than Camilla on Diana’s worst days. The comparison wasn’t even close. How Charles could cheat on Diana is beyond comprehension to most of the world. To say he traded down is the understatement of the century. The paparazzi loved Diana not only because of her Royalty status; they loved her because she was beautiful as well. By all accounts, she also seemed like she was a pretty down to earth woman. This could be at the top of this list but thanks to some other dumb decisions by other guys it only ranks as number five.
4 Reese Witherspoon
In 2006 Reese Witherspoon caught her hubby, Ryan Phillippe, cheating on her with Abbie Cornish. Obviously, she was done with the marriage and tossed him out the door. Witherspoon had been married to him for seven years and many were surprised it lasted that long.
Right from the very first day of the marriage, everyone predicted it was doomed because Phillippe had a reputation for going after anything that wore a dress. There were a lot of issues that were reported on but it wasn’t until she found out that hubby was seen making out with his co-star in Stop Loss that she filed the divorce papers. It was a bad time for Witherspoon all-together because not only did she lose her husband in the ordeal, she also lost quite a bit of cash, as the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement. This was back in 2006 she was pulling in around $20 million per movie, which is amazing when you consider that she really isn’t that good.
For being an unfaithful husband Phillippe was handsomely rewarded and it’s probably not a mistake that Witherspoon will make twice. As far as if it was a good trade in for him, financially apparently it was, but as far as women go, he got the short end of the stick.
3 Laura Dern
Billy Bob Thornton was engaged to Laura Dern for a time. It’s hard to see what Dern saw in him but it wasn’t hard to see that Thornton was getting the better of the deal by far. One day when Dern thought all was good in the relationship she left to go make a movie. She never dreamed what would happen while she was gone.
During Dern’s time away, Thornton moved out of their house and married Angelina Jolie… without even telling Dern they were breaking up! Dern once said on the subject "I left our home to go and make a movie and while I was away, my boyfriend got married and I never heard from him again." Now that’s just a dirtbag and I’m sure that Dern wasn’t heartbroken when that marriage ended not too long after it began.
Angelina Jolie is no Laura Dern by any means and her actions over the course of time show that she is as crude as Thornton was to Dern. The very next day after Dern and Thornton announced their relationship was over Jolie was cruising around sporting a brand new “Billy Bob” tattoo. After the marriage ended Jolie stole Brad Pitt from Jennifer Aniston and they stayed together until she found out that Pitt was cheating on her.
Trading in Dern for Jolie was a pretty big downgrade for Thornton and life’s justice saw that the marriage didn’t last.
2 Sandra Bullock
Sandra Bullock is one of the most successful actresses of our time. She is also one of the most beautiful. So when she got married to Jesse James the world was left scratching their heads as to why. It wasn’t a match made in heaven by any means and Bullock certainly had her pick of classier guys.
Eventually, everyone came around and just figured if she loved him there must be a reason why and all of the criticism died down. Just in time for him to prove to the world that he was indeed the low-life everyone thought he was.
James cheated on Bullock with several women and even allowed photos to be taken. That wasn’t a very smart move on his part at all. Many of the women were tattooed from head to toe, including Michelle McGee who had photos of her as a model in Nazi gear. Maybe some people like tattooed women and there’s nothing wrong with at all. But when you use them to cheat on Sandra Bullock you certainly have not made a move for the better.
James realized this and offered to attend counseling to save the marriage but Bullock would have none of it. The divorce was finalized in June of 2010. Just what was he going to go to counseling for? To learn how to keep his pants on?
1 Elizabeth Hurley
Elizabeth Hurley is still as hot as she was when she was in her prime. There is no denying the fact that she is one of the hottest female celebs of all time. Hugh Grant was lucky enough to marry her and they were together for a very long time. But that all started to unravel when Grant got lonely and got caught with a prostitute. Not just any prostitute, though, her name was Denise “Divine” Brown and she could not have been the hottest looking streetwalker that he could find.
Her photos show that she has spent some seriously hard times walking the streets and what Grant saw in her is beyond anyone’s comprehension. You have heard of the saying about having steak at home but going after a cheeseburger while away? That saying doesn’t even do this justice. It would be more like having a beautiful lobster spread on the table at home but instead going through a bag of garbage for your meal.
In public Hurley forgave Grant but the divorce a few years later says that she really didn’t forgive him behind closed doors. Look at the two women side by side and try to figure out what kind of drugs Grant must have been on to make that decision!
