10 Celebrity Cheaters Who Totally Downgraded
Sometimes when we read celebrity gossip it’s hard for us to imagine why anyone would risk their relationship when their partner is among the most beautiful people in the world! But nonetheless, it happens and with more frequency than we’d expect. This list takes a look at those celebrity cheaters who totally downgraded!
10. Ben Affleck
It was hard for the world to believe it when Hollywood darlings Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced a day after their 10th wedding anniversary that they were divorcing. Soon after, the tabloid rumors flew about the true cause of the dissolution of their marriage. Us Weekly reported that Affleck was romancing their 28-year-old nanny, Christina Ouzounian. The verdict is out on whether or not the relationship began while Affleck was still with Garner or not, but Jennifer has stated that she found out about the nanny situation at the same time as everyone else! Ouch! Who on earth would cheat on Jennifer Garner anyways? And with the nanny? How cliche!
9. Scott Disick
Scott Disick may be the downgrade for any woman, but fans of Keeping Up With The Kardashians were crushed when pictures surfaced of Scott getting uncomfortably close to his ex-girlfriend, Hollywood stylist, Chloe Bartoli. The pictures were snapped when Disick drunkenly vacationed in the south of France without Kourtney Kardashian. Say what you want about the Kardashians, they’re basically American Royalty! Of course, Scott is not with either woman now and when he was dumped by Kourtney he got with a 20-year-old model named Christine Burke (who bears an uncanny resemblance to Kendall Jenner). He clearly wants back in the family that has it all!
8. Jesse James
I don’t think there’s ever been a celebrity we have felt worse for than we did for Sandra Bullock when allegations of Jesse James infidelity surfaced, putting an end to their five-year marriage. To make matters worse, Bullock and James had recently gained full legal custody of Jesse’s daughter from another marriage (to a porn star, might we add), and the cheating scandal broke up the newly formed family. Jesse had cheated with several women including a heavily tatooed stripped named Michelle McGee. Not quite the Oscar winning actress caliber, but for James, it’ll have to do!
7. Tony Parker
Tony Parker was a wild man with busy fingers. Back in 2010 his beautiful actress-wife, Eva Longoria, filed for divorced after only three years of marriage. She reportedly uncovered countless text messages to other women, one of which was of particular interest because it was Parker’s former teammate’s wife, Erin Barry. Erin vehemently denied the allegations, but in January 2011, her 3-year marriage ended in divorce. Coincidence? We think not! Parker wound up getting remarried in 2014 to French journalist, Axelle Francine. They have one son together named Josh, and not to worry! In 2015, Longoria reported her engagement to businessman Jose Antonio Baston.
6. Arnold Schwarzenegger
Back in 2011, America was rocked with a cheating scandal that involved the Terminator and a Kennedy! It was the ultimate scandal. On May 9, 2011, Maria Shriver announced that she and Arnold were separating after 25-years of marriage and a few days later, the Governor came forth to publicly admit he had fathered a child with the couple’s long-time cleaning lady, Mildred Patricia Baena. The child was already 14-years old when this information surfaced. Yikes Arnie! A Kennedy for a cleaning lady? I mean, good for the cleaning lady, but…come on.
5. Kristen Stewart
Team Edward fans were horrified to learn that Kirsten Stewart got busy with her married, 41-year old, Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. The affair had been exposed after a series of photos were released of Stewart and Sanders making out. Die hard fans lit up the Twitter world stating that the pictures had been Photoshopped. I mean, who would cheat on Robert Patteinson? Stewart felt “devastated” over what happened, and the father of two released a statement saying that he was “utterly distraught” over what he had done to his family and model wife, Liberty Ross. Both couples have since parted ways and our beloved Pattinson has found love once more with FKA Twiggs.
4. Hugh Grant
Hugh Grant cheated on the stunning Elizabeth Hurley in a cheating scandal that was designed for the tabloids! The British actor was arrested for soliciting prostitutes back in 1995 and was charged with lewd conduct with sex worker, Divine Brown. Grant released a statement after the incident, “Last night I did something completely insane,” he said. “I have hurt people I love and embarrassed people I work with. For both things I am more sorry than I can ever possibly say.” And while Hurley tried to stand by her man through thick and thin, the couple ended their 13-year relationship in 2000.
3. Jude Law
Jude Law has developed a reputation for being a playboy and the bad rap may have resulted form his briefly lived relationship with actress Sienna Miller. The two were engaged for 7 months before Jude came forward and admitted to having a relationship with his children’s nanny, Daisy Wright. A source for the Daily Mail reported that Law actually blamed Miller for the affair! “Rather than feeling guilty and contrite he has turned the whole thing against Sienna. He said if she is not partying, she is sleeping and he completely blames her for what he has done.” He told her, “I told you I was unhappy, I told you I needed you to be there for me. Why didn’t you listen to me?” Why is it always the nanny?!
2. Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods may have made the worst decision of his life and career when he opted to cheat on his beautiful model wife, Elin Nordegren. The scandal of Wood’s affair broke when The National Enquirer reported that Tiger had been romancing hostess Rachel Uchitel. It was estimated that Woods had affairs with 19 women, all of whom came forward after the media picked up the story. Woods made a public apology, but the scandal left his career in shambles and he lost millions in promotional deals. That’s karma, Tiger!
1. Ethan Hawke
Just in case you haven’t heard enough about nannies, we got one more for ya! Ethan Hawke and Uma Therman ended their 7-year marriage after Hawke allegedly had an affair with the couple’s nanny, Ryan Shawhughes. Hawke went on to make comments that didn’t quite sit right with his fans: “To act all indignant, that your world has been rocked because your lover wasn’t faithful to you, is a little bit like acting rocked that your hair went grey.” In this bizarre tale, Ethan actually traded Uma in and married Ryan in 2008. The couple now have two children together, but given his previous comments, we’re left wondering how faithful he is in this new relationship!
