The temptation to cheat is everywhere in Hollywood, with the lure of the unknown too enticing to resist for some.
Scandals that rocked world
Whether it was a night with the nanny or shacking up with a co-star, these stars got caught with their pants down.
Here are eight particularly memorable Hollywood cheating scandals:
1. Victoria and David Beckham
In 2004, it was alleged that the world’s favourite footballer David Beckham, had been having an affair with his then personal assistant, Rebecca Loos.
Beckham’s PA enjoyed her 15 minutes of fame, appearing in a string of reality shows, including Celebrity Love Island, The X Factor and The Farm.
Former Spice Girl Victoria stood by her man in the wake of the scandal and the Beckhams are still married to this day.
2. Hugh Grant and Liz Hurley
In 1987 Grant and Hurley met on set and soon began dating. In a media storm of allegations, Hurley stood by Grant’s side when the Notting Hill star was arrested for “soliciting prostitutes” in the mid-90s.
In 2000, after 13 years together, the pair finally called it quits.
3. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani filed for divorce from rocker Gavin Rossdale after 13 years together.
The breakup came after a string of cheating rumours and allegations that Rossdale had cheated with the couple’s nanny, Mindy Mann. Stefani is now happily loved-up with her The Voice co-star, Blake Shelton.
4. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
Hollywood nanny Christine Ouzounian, was hired by Garner in early 2015, from a high-end Beverly Hills nannying agency to look after the couple’s three children, Violet, nine, Seraphina, six, and Samuel, three.
During her time in the Affleck house, Us Weekly alleged that Ouzounian and Affleck sparked up a sordid romance that ultimately resulted in Affleck and Garner’s divorce.
The couple announced their intention to divorce one day after their 10th wedding anniversary.
5. Jude Law and Sienna Miller
Again, it all started with the couple’s nanny. Miller and Law announced their engaged in 2004 and appeared to have it all, however, the wedding was simply not-to-be.
Seven months after Law first popped the question, the Closer star issued a public apology to Miller for having an affair with the nanny of his children with ex-wife, Sadie Frost.
6. Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid
The former golden couple called it quits after nine years of marriage.
Ryan began allegedly dating her Proof of Life co-star Russell Crowe, while still legally married to Quaid.
7. Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher
Unfortunately for Reynolds, Fisher fell for his co-star Elizabeth Taylor and called time on their marriage.
Reynolds and Fisher tied the knot in 1955, however, divorced after four short years together.
8. Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger
A week later, Schwarzenegger revealed that he had secretly fathered a child with the couple’s cleaner, Mildred Patricia Baena.
At the time of the shock announcement, Schwarzenegger’s son was 14-years-old.
