For some women it is a goal to become the trophy wife of a superstar athlete. Unfortunately, these unions don’t always prove to be ideal. Even with a beautiful wife on their arms, some athletes can’t help but be tempted by endless indulgences. Here are eight athletes notorious for their cheating scandals:
1. Tiger Woods
Wife: Elin Nordegren
In November 2009, tabloid reports broke that Woods had an affair with nightclub promoter Rachel Uchitel. He later crashed his car into a tree outside his home. Reports surfaced that he had been attacked by wife Elin after she learned of the affair. Soon, multiple women would come forth admitting they had affairs with the golf legend. He admitted to his infidelity and issued a public apology. Tiger and Elin divorced in August 2010.
