9 Celebrity Couples Who Stayed Together Despite Serious Scandals
Dating and marriage are hard enough in the regular world — we can’t imagine how celebrities do it. (Okay, the fancy mansions, assistants, personal trainers and private chefs probably help!) But even though we hear about celebs breaking up all the time — Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are currently breaking our hearts, not to mention Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfelt — some of them stick it out despite major scandals, including infidelity and drug addiction. Here are 9 celeb couples who have stayed together despite some rocky situations:
9. David and Victoria Beckham
Football star David Beckham and model/fashion designer/pop star Victoria Beckham have been married since 1999 and have four children together — but it hasn’t all been sunshine and rainbows in their relationship. David has been accused of cheating on Victoria with multiple women, including model Sarah Marbeck, personal assistant Rebecca Loos, singer Katherine Jenkins, and even an escort named Nirma Nici (to be fair, Katherine denied the rumors, but Rebecca has publicly discussed her “affair” with David). Whether or not all these rumors are true, they’re hurtful — but Victoria has stuck by her man and the pair has worked through it.
8. Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker
Matthew and SJ certainly seem to be in it for the long haul. They’ve been married since 1997 and have a son and twin daughters. But in 1998, a source told Star magazine that Matthew was having an affair with a woman, sneaking off to his friend’s townhouse in New York to do the deed. The infidelity supposedly continued while Sarah Jessica went to Los Angeles to shoot the Sex and the City movie. The couple hasn’t publicly confirmed that any affair took place, and they’re still together.
