Caught red-handed: these celebrities were caught cheating on their partners

The downside of fame is constantly being in the scrutiny of the public eye. These celebrities tried to keep their dirty little secret hidden but in vain.

Celebrities have it all - the fame, fortune, and adoration of many. Looking at their lives through our screens we think they have it all. Even when they start dating other near-perfect stars, we feel like theirs is a match made in heaven and thanks to the press we get to see their supposed fairytale unravel before our eyes.

Over time and through the grapevine, we have also come to learn that most celebrities are awful at staying in a faithful relationship with their partners. It may be because of the constant glare of the public eye, or the fact that they're just more attracted to someone else - either way, their dirty secrets get aired publicly. Here are some of those celebrities who got caught cheating.

1. Kristen Stewart

When Kristen Stewart started dating Robert Pattinson, the Twilight fanbase exploded. The couple seemed like they were very much in love while they were together. But that dream came crashing down after photos of Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders surfaced. The 'Twilight' star was pictured getting very intimate with the then-married 'Snow White and the Huntsman' director. The two of them issued public apologies for their affair, and Kristen and Robert broke up and moved on.

2. Anne Heche

Anne Heche and Ellen DeGeneres had been dating for quite sometime in 1997. The couple seemed serious about their relationship and were even thinking of getting a civil union at Vermont at one point. But in 2000, the two of them called it quits. The decision gained widespread notoriety with the media. It turned out that Anne Heche was a cheating on Ellen with the comedienne's cameraman Coleman "Coley" Laffoon. The two met while touring with Ellen for her comedy show. Heche ended up cheating on him as well with her 'Men in Trees' co-star James Tupper. 

3. Jennifer Lopez

When J-Lo was just breaking into the scene, she was in a relationship with her backup dancer Chris Judd. The couple then got married for a short period of time. However, it wasn't soon before when the couple decided to file for divorce, and we guess it could have been because something was amiss when J-Lo was filming for the movie 'Gigli' with Ben Affleck. The media had long been suspicious of the two having an affair. The rumors strengthened Judd's move for divorce and he later filed for divorce due to an irreconcilable difference. Sure enough and shortly after her divorce, Jennifer Lopez began a relationship with Ben Affleck. 

4. Ethan Hawke

Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman met on the sets of 'Gattaca' in 1996. Two years later the two of them got married under a spell of love. After having two kids together, Hawke and Thurman called it quits after five years of wedded life. The rumor mill spun tales of Hawke's infidelity, pairing him with his children's nanny. Lo behold, Hawke ended up marrying their former nanny Ryan in 2008. 

5. Jack Nicholson

Jack Nicholson and actress Anjelica Huston had a rocky relationship between 1973 and 1990. The on-again-off-again couple were together for 17 long years. It was an open secret that the 'Shining' actor was not faithful to Huston having cheated on her numerous times with numerous women. Huston and Nicholson finally called it quits for good after Jack Nicholson got actress Rebecca Broussard pregnant. 

6. Arnold Schwarzenegger


Arnie was an actor that everyone wanted a piece of. But in 1986, the 'Terminator' actor married journalist Maria Shriver and together, the two of them looked like a vision of perfection but only for so long. They had four children together and after 25 years of marriage, the two of them divorced in 2011 when it was discovered that Schwarzenegger had fathered an illegitimate child with the housemaid Patricia Baena. Following the news of Schwarzenegger's cheating, actress Brigitte Nielsen also admitted to having a relationship with Schwarzenegger while he was married to Shriver.

7. Heidi Klum

Supermodel Heidi Klum's relationship with musician Seal was the stuff that scripted romantic films. The two of them seemed to be madly in love with each other and got married in 2005. Together, they had three children and had the world fawning over their perfect lives. However, the honeymoon ended following rumors of Klum cheating on her husband Seal with her bodyguard Martin Kristen. Heidi and Seal called it quits in 2007 and soon after, she was dating him. But that blissful relationship also fizzled out after two years. 

8. Britney Spears

Britney and Justin were the 'it' couple when they started dating. But Britney proved to be too 'toxic' for Justine as she allegedly cheated on him not once, but twice. Britney was apparently getting intimate with her ex-choreographer Wade Robson. Justin even wrote a song about their rocky breakup namely Cry Me A River

9. Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey were married for three short years before breaking up in 2005. Citing the reason as irreconcilable differences, the couple reportedly called it quits after it was rumored that Jessica was cheating on Nick. Allegedly, Jessica cheated on Nick with Maroon 5's, Adam Levine. The rumor was confirmed when the paparazzi snapped a picture of Jessica emerging from a hotel in L.A. wearing Adam Levine's t-shirt.

However, the bliss didn't last very long. In 2005, Jude Law was rumored to have been having an affair with their children's nanny. He issued a public apology to Sienna but the relationship could not be salvaged. Sienna got back at Jude Law by cheating on him with her 'Layer' co-star Daniel Craig.

Larry King has had quite an adventurous love life. The legendary television show host has been married eight times to seven different women and has fathered five children. It doesn't come as a surprise that the man has had his fair share of women. The most prominent scandal was when Larry King cheated with Shawn Southwick. The couple's 26 year age gap didn't stop the show host from cheating on his wife with her own sister.

12. Madonna

Madonna met Guy Ritchie and love was in the air. The two of them got together in 1998 and even had a son together. But the rosy picture the two had painted was soon tarnished with rumors of the 'Material Girl' cheating on her devoted husband with baseball star Alex Rodrigues. Madonna denied the rumors, but was frequently pictured with the pro ball player. A-Rod was also caught sneaking in and out of Madonna's apartment. Both Madonna and Alex divorced their partners following the cheating rumors.

Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid were known to be madly in love since they met on the set of their second film together. They got married in 1991 and even had a child together. But the bliss soon turned to tears when the two of them called it quits in 2001. Ryan alleged that it was Quaid who had been unfaithful towards her during their ten-year marriage. But it turned out that Meg Ryan was cheating on Dennis Quaid with Russell Crowe who she acted within the 2000 movie 'Proof of Life'. 

14. Brad Pitt

The whole world thought that Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were a match made in heaven. The sweet marriage turned sour after Brad began filming 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' with Angelina Jolie. The rumor mill claimed that Pitt had cheated on Aniston with his co-star. Brad and Jen ended their marriage in 2005 and he continued denying the cheating rumors. But the doubt was soon confirmed after Brad and Angelina began appearing in public more frequently. 'Brangelina' soon became an 'it' couple and the couple even got married. But sadly, the relationship came to an end last year.
