But sometimes, the extramarital affairs they get into seem to enrapture us even more. These celebrity mistresses are often more entertaining than seeing our favorite stars walk hand in hand with their significant others. Many of these mistresses eventually found love and became wives. Here are several of the most famous women who were thrust into some pretty massive scandals.
Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen are a couple that many people fawn over now. But before they became a celebrity IT couple, they were a scandalous story. Tom Brady, the quarterback for the New England Patriots, was still in a relationship when they began dating.
After dating Gisele Bündchen and Bridget Moynahan, Tom would eventually break it off with Moynahan and walk down the aisle with Gisele in 2009.
When many think of Alicia Keys, most people think of stylish music that gives them good feelings. But in her personal life, different aspects are going on. Now, the R&B star is coupled with Swizz Beatz, but the beginning of their relationship was a little rocky.
Swizz Beatz’s ex claimed the couple got together before their marriage had ended. Of course, that’s her take on it because the other members of this relationship say that they didn’t get together until the marriage was entirely over.
When you’re in the public eye, you have to be careful about stepping out on your significant other. Of course, when you meet someone you love, it might be challenging because now you have to go through a whole new phase of the relationship with the person you are currently attached to.
Kelsey Grammar met this flight attendant and dated her six months before his divorce. Eventually, Kelsey married Kayte once the divorce was finalized. Now they have three children together and are living happily ever after.
Sometimes, closeness breeds a stronger connection. That may be the case with what happened between Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa. The musician became part of his tour in the ’80s, and they began to fall for each other.
Unfortunately, Bruce was already married. Eventually, the affair was found out and his first marriage ended, which freed him to tie the knot with Patti and they’ve been together ever since.
Though no one is sure that this actually began as an affair, most people have noticed that Amber Heard and Johnny Depp began their relationship on the set of a movie.
In 2012, Johnny Depp ended his marriage and soon began a new marriage with Amber. Sadly, the two could not keep this relationship together and would part ways just two years after tying the knot.
This is another one of those scandals that weren’t entirely found to be true. But allegedly, while married to Cynthia Scurtis, Alex Rodriguez had a side thing with Madonna. Of course, Madonna was also married at the time, so this was a double scandal.
Though both have denied that this ever happened, the rumors seemed to be pretty rampant, and it would eventually cost Rodriguez his marriage.
It’s no surprise when you hear about some Hollywood star having an extramarital adventure with the nanny. Several have happened, and most of them made top headlines, but one of the ones that seemed to impact the scandal mill the most was when Ethan Hawke stepped out with Ryan Shawhughes.
While he was married to Uma Thurman, Ethan Hawke let his eyes wander, and eventually, this got him in trouble. After separating from Uma Thurman and divorcing, Ryan and Ethan eventually tied the knot.
When you think about Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas, you think of a couple that was together for decades, eventually divorcing in 2015. However, this marriage only came about after the two stepped out on their significant others in the ’90s.
Once the relationship began, though, both divorced their current partners and then walked down the aisle just a year later.
In 2000, Julia Roberts and Danny Moder met. She was in a relationship with Benjamin Bratt and he was married to Vera Steimberg. The two felt the sparks and eventually began seeing each other behind the other two’s backs. This lasted for six months before they were found out.
Eventually, after being found out, Danny divorced and then he and Julia got together and have been together ever since.
Maybe one of the most scandalous things to happen in Hollywood was the separation of Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, due to his relationship with Angelina Jolie. Though this has come and gone, and Angelina and Brad eventually separated, it’s still a scandal of contention.
The two met on the set of a movie in 2016 and quickly began their relationship. Eventually, the two would marry and build a beautiful family. Unfortunately, the couple didn’t last and have separated now.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
Thousands of people watched across the globe as Prince Charles married Princess Diana in the ’80s. It was one of those relationships that everybody was vested in, though there was plenty of turmoil behind closed doors.
One of those turmoils was Prince Charles’s affair with Camilla Parker Bowles. Eventually, Prince Charles and Diana would separate, and in 2005, Charles and Camilla would walk down the aisle, cementing their love.
Though Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert eventually parted ways, their union only came about due to a side relationship. Blake was married at the time that he and Miranda got together.
Eventually, Blake divorced his first wife, and he and Miranda married. In the end, though, the two separated and Blake moved on with fellow The Voice host, Gwen Stefani, while Miranda moved on with musician, Evan Felker.
You have no control over who you fall in love with, though, usually, you try not to do so when you’re already attached to someone else. Unfortunately, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott were both married when they met and fell for each other.
Knowing that they were meant to be together, both set about separating from their current spouses and would eventually get married once the divorces were finalized.
When you’re on the set of a movie that’s all about love, sometimes, those feelings translate over, especially if there’s chemistry between you and your co-star. That’s what happened to LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian when they met on the set of the Lifetime movie, Northern Lights.
The problem was that both of them were already tied to other people, so when word of their extracurricular activities came to light, it wasn’t long before both were single again. Although, this did free them up to get together.
Many of us may think these scandals are something new, but they’ve been going on in Hollywood for decades. In fact, one of the very first scandalous relationships was between Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.
Bogart was married when he and Bacall originally began seeing each other. A year later, he filed for divorce and made their relationship public, and they were together until his passing in 1957.
Sienna Miller is no stranger to public scandals. In fact, on top of the one she had with her tumultuous relationship with Jude Law, she was attached to another actor, Balthazar Getty, in the same type of situation.
But maybe the one with Jude Law is the most prominent, and that’s because they were both involved with other people when they were together. Either way, she definitely has had her turn in the spotlight, and not always in the best light.
Victoria and David Beckham are one of those couples that everyone looks up to. After all, they’re not only super attractive but have been able to stand the test of time… Even when they came up against a bit of a scandal.
In 2016, it came out that the famous soccer player was outed as having an extramarital dalliance while in Madrid, in 2004. Rebecca Loos eventually came out about her affair. After her time in the spotlight, though, the pair went back to their lives, and Rebecca found love elsewhere.
It seemed only fitting that the two stars of the hit teen supernatural romance, Twilight, would wind up in a relationship. Unfortunately for Robert Pattinson, someone else had caught Kristen Stewart’s eye.
Stewart found her eyes wandering to director Rupert Sanders, who was married at the time. The relationship eventually broke up Pattinson and Stewart’s relationship, but that’s okay because this led Kristen to move on with her life and eventually find love again.
Evan Rachel Wood
Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood met when she was very young. At the time, the rock star was married to Dita Von Teese, but that didn’t stop them from beginning to date. Eventually, Marilyn Manson divorced his wife.
This allowed the two to get together but they never officially become a couple. Eventually, the two separated, and several years later, Evan Rachel would accuse Manson of misconduct.
Old Hollywood had its fair share of scandalous relationships. Along with ones like Marilyn Monroe and JFK, there was the breakup of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds’s marriage by Elizabeth Taylor.
This was scandalous because Eddie was married and Elizabeth was very close friends with Debbie Reynolds. The relationship would last for five years, and then Taylor would step out on Fisher with Hollywood actor, Richard Burton.
It may have been the scandal of all scandals when it was made publicly known that Woody Allen had been dating his adopted daughter. This ended his decade-long relationship with Mia Farrow and caused a lot of negative press, to say the least.
Though many still feel that this was an inappropriate relationship, the two have been together since 1997. Who knows how and why this relationship works, but it has, and though many people still have a disgusting image of this, it seems to be working for them.
In 2004, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez made their relationship official and walked down the aisle. But that was just five months after Marc’s divorce was filed. That’s why many people think that some extramarital activities were happening between these two.
The couple would stay together for quite a while but, eventually, would separate. Now, Jennifer Lopez is happy with her new beau and Marc Anthony is happy with his new lady.
Many people find feelings growing when they work with someone for hours and hours every day. When Britney Spears fell for Kevin Federline, who was her backup dancer in 2004, he was engaged at the time.
Despite the fact he was already engaged, Kevin and Britney decided to tie the knot and went on to have two children together. In 2006, though, the couple split and have been in the headlines ever since because of their scandalous actions.
When you’re looking to step out on your significant other, you want to keep it quiet. Unfortunately, Jason Aldean didn’t get that memo because he was caught making out with his mistress, Brittany Kerr.
This clearly upset his wife and eventually led to them separating. That was okay for him because it freed him up to begin dating Brittany openly. Eventually, in 2014, they announced that they were engaged and got married in 2015.
Lil’ Kim was a pretty prominent rap star in the ’90s. As part of Biggie Smalls’s crew, she got a lot of attention and had her fair share of scandals. But one of the biggest may be that she and Biggie were hooking up behind Biggie’s wife’s back.
The two were an item, while Biggie Smalls was married to Faith Evans at the time. However, many speculate that he would have eventually broken ties with her and married Kim if he hadn’t passed away.
Rihanna and Chris Brown were a couple who just couldn’t get enough of each other, for quite a while. So much so, that even when they were off, they often wound up on again. And it just so happens that one time it happened while Chris was actually attached to someone else.
You can, of course, love whoever you want. According to many, even though it was a scandalous relationship between Chris and Rihanna, it didn’t seem to mess with his marriage.
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are one of those couples that everybody looks up to. And though they’re now happily married, the relationship did begin with a bit of an issue.
This was because Dwayne Wade’s ex accused him of cheating on her with Gabrielle Union. Who knows if this is the actual case, but this would be a bit of a scandal if it were.
When you hear the name Tiger Woods, you often think about some nefarious activities. That’s because he’s well known for stepping out on women he’s involved with. In fact, maybe one of the most famous is Rachel Uchitel.
This couple got together while Tiger was married to Elin Nordegren, and was found out through a series of very inappropriate texts. Eventually, Uchitel would go on to find love, but not with Tiger, of course.
Michelle Williams is forever tied to Heath Ledger, but that doesn’t mean that her life is over. Eventually, she would tie the knot with Phil Elverum in 2018. However, they would soon part ways because of an alleged side relationship with theater director, Thomas Kail.
It’s said that this relationship started on the set of a television show. Eventually, after finally getting a divorce, Williams and Kail would start a relationship and a family.
It seems that maybe Blake Shelton has a little bit of a thing for dangerous relationships. Though this one seems to have worked out as the two have been happy for quite a while, he initially started dating Gwen Stefani when she hadn’t finished her divorce.
Also, he was still technically married to Miranda Lambert. Eventually, both got their divorces and found their way to tying the knot together.
When you’re in the public eye, it’s hard to deal with love affairs. So when Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O’Connell first started dating, it quickly became known, which created quite a scandal – probably because he was still involved with Giuliana Rancic.
The pair eventually worked their way out of their other relationships and tied the knot in 2007. Since then, they’ve been a happily married couple raising a family.
There are countless stories of co-stars falling in love on the set of some film. This is what happened between Claire Danes and Billy Crudup, but unfortunately, this wasn’t a glamorous romance story – but rather a tale of someone stepping out on another person.
Both Danes and Crudup ended up being torn apart by the public. Eventually, Crudup would leave his partner and begin a relationship with Danes. Though they didn’t last long, it was a relationship that began as a scandal.
Jennifer Aniston finally found love with Justin Theroux and walked down the aisle. But before they made it down that aisle, Jennifer and Justin were not the only people in this relationship. In fact, Justin was tied to Heidi Bivens.
Eventually, after handling being the other woman for a while, Jennifer and Justin became exclusive. In 2010, he popped the question, and the rest is history. Or least it was for a little while; the two did end up splitting up, eventually.
Sometimes when you meet a person at a work event, you just click. For Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Sklar, that happened in 1998. Unfortunately, she was already married at that time, which caused quite the scandal.
She would rapidly separate from her then-husband, and she and Jerry would marry in 1999. They’ve been married ever since and seemed to be very happy, despite their scandalous beginnings.
There are those that find their special someone right after separating from someone they thought they would be together with forever. Of course, typically, this is done with someone else who is also available, but sometimes, that may not be the case.
For Debra Messing and Will Chase, that’s what happened. Right after meeting, Will divorced his then-wife and began dating Debra. Though the relationship only lasted three years before they decided they wanted to go their separate ways.
Though not truly famous because of her actions, this mistress found her name in the papers for quite a while. Amy Fisher and Joey Buttafuoco were having an affair behind Joey’s wife’s back. Eventually, though, Amy took matters into her own hands.
Her actions led to her winding up going to trial because of violent acts. And because of this, her name forever went down in the annals of time as one of the most famous mistresses ever.
Traci Lynn Johnson
There are plenty of very famous mistresses who got themselves into trouble and a little bit of controversy when interacting with their bosses. But maybe one of the ones that went under the radar is Traci Lynn Johnson and her affair with Tiki Barber.
They met after Barber had retired in 2007, and a relationship quickly formed. However, he was married at the time. The ex-NFL player eventually chose to leave his wife and started dating Traci instead.
Kat von D
Jesse James made himself famous by being the guy who always fixed motorcycles. He has been attached to several big names, including Sandra Bullock, who he stepped out on with this young lady.
Just three years after being married to Sandra Bullock, he began texting with this young woman. Sandra forgave him, but it wouldn’t be the only time that his wandering eye would get him in trouble!
Kobe Bryant was the icon of the basketball court. But sometimes, he had a little bit of a wandering eye in his personal life. Eventually, this would get him in trouble when he hooked up with one of the Laker girls, Vanessa Curry.
Though nobody is sure if this affair actually happened, it was still leaked to the press and wound up getting Kobe in a bit of a bind. Especially since his wife wasn’t too keen on the fact that he was stepping out with someone else who had the same name as her!
It seems that Hollywood stars, and sports stars, have a problem with fidelity. And sometimes, these sports stars have multiple scandals going on at the same time. That’s what happened to Roger Clemens when he was in trouble for dealing with some illegal substances and found himself also in the limelight with a scandalous affair.
Having found love with Mindy McCready, a country music star, the married baseball player got himself in a bit of trouble. However, he eventually separated from his wife and he and Mindy wound up splitting in the end, as well.
Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied are now a happy couple, but before they made it down the aisle, they fended off rumors of Natalie being the other woman. When they first started out, it seemed that Ben had a girlfriend.
He and Natalie didn’t officially make their relationship public until he finally broke it off with his then-girlfriend. But when they did, it wasn’t long before they found their happily ever after.
Though the marriage between Jesse James and Sandra Bullock didn’t end with his inappropriate relations with Brigitte, it would eventually be called “done” after he was caught with the second woman.
Michelle McGee was a little bit more of who everybody expected Jesse to be with. She had tattoos and was a little wilder than the classic and respectable Sandra Bullock. He was still married, which caused the five-year marriage to go down in flames.
Rockers are notorious for being very open to new relationships. Mick Jagger is one of the biggest rock stars there is and he’s been in quite a few scandalous relationships, including the one with Carla Bruni.
Apparently, while Mick was still married to Jerry Hall, he and Carla had a relationship. Eventually, though, the scandal came out. Although it was hard, Jerry and Mick worked their way through it. Carla would go on to be the first lady of France for a few years, after that.
It was shocking when it was found out that Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were an item. But eventually, everybody fell in love with the two and it seemed like they were happily married… But looks can always be deceiving.
In 2010, rumors started to spread that there were some illicit texts between Brittney and Ashton. Ashton denied it, but the rumors were pretty consistent. Demi chose to stick by Ashton, even though it definitely looked like he had stepped out on her.
For years, the world tuned in to the relationship of Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon. The “it couple” was the marker for many of us. That is until it came out that Ryan had stepped out on Reese.
He did this with Abbie Cornish, who would eventually wind up being on his arm. They stayed together for several years but eventually parted ways. Each, though, would go on to find their happily ever after with others.
