Stars Who Stayed Together After Cheating Scandals

When these stars said "for better or for worse," they really meant it. The following celebs dealt with a partner who allegedly broke their trust and engaged in an extramarital affair...or two...or three, but instead of kicking their spouse to the curb, they decided to stick around and work things out. The following couples survived huge cheating scandals.

Usher & Grace Miguel

R&B singer Usher Raymond's music career took a back seat when numerous people accused him of allegedly exposing them to the herpes virus. One woman even slapped him with a $20 million lawsuit after she was reportedly infected during their trysts–the lawsuit was later dismissed, according to E! News.

Despite Usher's courtroom victory, many expected his wife, Grace Miguel, to leave him, especially since one of the alleged victims claimed to have had sexual relations with him twice in 2017, after he and Miguel wed, reported BET.

Despite all the bad press, sources told TMZ in 2017 that Raymond and Miguel were "rock solid," claiming she wasn't "concerned at all" about the cheating allegation. 

Woody Harrelson & Laura Louie

During a tell-all interview with The Hollywood Reporter, actor Woody Harrelson spilled his guts about his scandalous 2002 affair.

The actor was reportedly in a London bar when a group of women approached him and offered him a foursome. Unbeknownst to him, one of the women just so happened to work as a paparazzo, and she took an incriminating photo of him that was later published in a tabloid magazine.

When his wife, Laura, found out about the incident, she didn't react the way he expected. Instead of getting all angry and taking a Louisville Slugger to both headlights, she supposedly told him: "That must be really hard for you, to have this s**t exposed."

Looking back on the incident, Harrelson said, "Now that doesn't mean she wasn't upset. How did I apologize? You know, just your standard Texan grovel. But she forgave me, and we're still together."

Jaime Bergman & David Boreanaz

David Boreanaz may be known as Angel in the early-2000s series Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its eponymous spin-off, but years later, his fans knew him better as an apologetic adulterer.

Boreanaz had been married to Jaime Bergman since 2001, but in 2010, he was forced to come clean about his affairs. In an interview with People, the actor stated, "I haven't been faithful to my wife... Our marriage has been tainted with my infidelities. I was irresponsible." The actor fessed up after allegedly facing "some sort of extortion attempt." The woman "was asking for six figures and would go to the media if we didn't pay. I felt threatened," he told the mag.

During the interview, Bergman shared her feelings too. "There's anger. There's hurt. There's disgust. But there is a love," she said. "For me to walk away from that, I don't think would be the right thing to do."

Unfortunately, the mystery woman wasn't the only person Boreanaz was involved with. The actor also revealed he had cheated on Bergman when she was pregnant with their second child. That mistress was none other than Rachel Uchitel. If that name sounds familiar, it's probably because Uchitel made headlines when she found herself in the center of golfer Tiger Wood's sex scandal and subsequent divorce from his wife, Elin Nordegren.

Thankfully, Boreanaz's marriage didn't suffer the same fate as Wood's. At the time of this writing, he and Bergman are still going strong. 

David Letterman & Regina Lasko

In 2009, just seven months after marrying production manager Regina Lasko, late night TV host David Letterman was forced to confess to being sexually involved with multiple staff members who worked on his hit show. Addressing the Late Night With David Letterman studio audience, he apologized for his actions and said Lasko had been "horribly hurt" by his behavior. 

One of Letterman's mistresses was his former assistant, Stephanie Birkitt, who would sometimes make brief appearances on the show. She was also reportedly in a relationship with CBS News Producer Robert "Joe" Halderman at the time. When Halderman discovered Birkitt was cheating on him with Letterman, he allegedly attempted to extort $2 million from the late night host in exchange for silence, reported People.

Letterman's on-air admission was his way of getting ahead of the scandal, and in the end, Halderman was the one who paid the biggest price. In 2011, he pleaded guilty to second-degree grand larceny and was sentenced to six months in jail, four and a half years probation, and 1,000 hours of community service, according to CNN.

Birkitt's presence has reportedly been wiped clean from the CBS catalog of Letterman footage on YouTube–almost as if she never existed. As for Letterman, his reputation took a hit, but he managed to keep his marriage intact.

David & Victoria Beckham

David and Victoria Beckham celebrated 18 years of marriage in 2017, and to mark the occasion, the pop star-turned-fashion designer shared a photo from her whimsical wedding on Instagram. But this marriage hasn't always been a smooth ride, most notably when cheating rumors emerged in 2004. 

David's former personal assistant, Rebecca Loos, claimed she had an affair with him during his time spent in Spain with the Real Madrid soccer team, according to the Daily Mail (via the Evening Standard.

David denied the allegations in a statement (via the Telegraph.) "I am very happily married, have a wonderful wife and two very special kids," he said. "There is nothing that any third party can do to change these facts."

Victoria sang the same tune, telling Grazia, "I have never listened to, or commented on, the rumours about any aspect of my life... David and I have nothing to prove." 

Years later, in January 2017, David shared some insight about his marriage during an interview with radio show Desert Island Discs (via the Express.) "Of course you make mistakes over the years," he admitted. "Whenever we've come through tough times we talk." That vague statement alone sent tabloids into a frenzy and prompted many to assume it was a subtle confession, but whether the rumors are true or not, this power couple is going the distance. 

Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have a unique relationship. They have confessed to cheating on each other for years–even long before their 1982 wedding, yet they've always been able to forgive and forge ahead.

During an interview with The Howard Stern Radio Show (via Blabbermouth), Sharon admitted to cheating on her rock star husband in 1980 with his Black Sabbath guitarist, the late Randy Rhoads. 

As for Ozzy's infidelities: during an episode of The Talk via (Us Weekly) in 2017, Sharon revealed that her husband cheated on her with his hairstylist, a masseuse in Los Angeles, their family chef, a "f*****g Russian teenager," and another unidentified woman. Sharon kicked the self-proclaimed sex addict out of their home, but they didn't stay separated for long. On Mother's Day 2017, they renewed their wedding vows and celebrated 35 together.  

When speaking about the state of their marriage, Ozzy told Hello! magazine, "I can honestly say that I have never loved anybody other than my wife," and Sharon stated, "It was hard to rebuild the trust, but I can't imagine my life without Ozzy."

And true love prevails!

Hillary & Bill Clinton

The entire world was shocked when former U.S. President Bill Clinton became tied up in a sex scandal involving a much younger White House intern.

Clinton, who was 49 at the time, stated during a televised speech that he "did not have sexual relations" with Monica Lewinsky, who was 22-years-old at the time. The president's statement was later disproved, and what happened next included charges of perjury and obstruction of justice, and Lewinsky's infamous soiled blue dress. Yuck.

But Lewinsky wasn't the only woman with whom Clinton allegedly cheated. When the Lewinsky scandal broke, the president was already under investigation and being sued by a former Arkansas state employee named Paula Jones for allegedly exposing himself to her. And then there was Gennifer Flowers, the woman who claimed to be Clinton's mistress for 12 years.

The president was acquitted of all charges, and his wife, Hillary Clinton, stood by his side the entire time. During a 1992 interview with CBS's 60 Minutes (via Politico), the Clintons put up a united front. "I'm sitting here because I love him, and I respect him," Hillary said, "and I honor what he's been through and what we've been through together."

Larry & Shawn King

Larry and Shawn King have been married since 1997, and considering she's his seventh wife, one would think he'd be a marriage pro by now. Think again. This relationship has been rife with so many controversies and cheating scandals, it's difficult to keep up with all the messiness!

In 2010, Larry filed for divorce after it was revealed he was reportedly having an affair with Shawn's sister, according to the National Enquirer (via Fox News.) He called off the divorce that same year and said in a statement, "A lot of new things are happening to us...and we are happy to be together as a family with our children."

By 2016, they were on the rocks again. A source told People Larry was "distraught" about his wife's alleged year-long affair with an unnamed man. According to the insider, "Larry is completely embarrassed and anguished by all of this... He doesn't know what to do."

The couple briefly split, but at the time of this writing, Mr. and Mrs. King are still holding on tight.

Beyoncé & Jay-Z

After the 2014 Met Gala, Beyoncé's little sister, Solange Knowles, laid the smackdown on Bey's husband, Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter, inside an elevator. Two months later, Beyoncé delivered a passionate performance of a song called "Resentment," and rumors about cheating soon began to buzz. 

Beyoncé's song, which was originally released in 2006, was all about being lied to and cheated on by the one you love, and the singer even took the time to switch up the lyrics while performing, leaving the crowd convinced that it was her husband who was in the dog house. Instead of singing the original lyrics: "Been ridin' with you for six years," Beyoncé sang, "Been ridin' with you for 12 years," which just so happened to be the exact amount of time she and Jay-Z had been together. 

When Beyoncé released her sixth studio album, Lemonade, in 2016, fans heard her message loud and clear. The entire visual album points to a tumultuous relationship plagued by a mysterious "Becky with the good hair." 

Jay-Z finally came clean about his behavior during a Q&A with The New York Times in 2017. The rapper said he had been so used to shutting down his emotions while growing up, especially with women, that it was hard for him to "connect." He added, "And then all the things happen from there: infidelity."

Eniko Parrish & Kevin Hart

Comedian Kevin Hart admitted to cheating throughout his first marriage to his ex-wife, Torrei Hart. He even joked about it in his stand-up routines, but he appeared to be a changed man when he wed model Eniko Parrish in August 2016. The following year, the seemingly happy couple was expecting its first child together.

Instead of joyfully awaiting the arrival of their bundle of joy, Parrish suddenly had to deal with an embarrassing sex scandal involving her husband. Kevin posted a video online, publicly apologizing to Parrish, and to his two children from his first marriage, for leaked video footage that allegedly showed him cheating with a former bartender named Montia Sabbag, according to TMZ. Parrish never released a statement of her own, but she stayed with Hart even after an unknown source attempted to extort seven figures from the comedian to keep the scandalous footage private.

Parrish gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Kenzo Kash in November 2017. One week postpartum, she posted a picture on Instagram of her slim figure and credited her flawless post-baby bod on a "stress/drama free" pregnancy.
