The famous golf player, Tiger Woods, had one of the filthiest, most well-known divorce stories to ever happen in Hollywood, with him being playing the unfaithful part. In 2009, his marriage to the Swedish beauty Elin Nordegren came to an end when the rumors of Tiger's cheating surfaced and later confirmed.
The golf player had in fact cheated on his wife with multiple women, which is, perhaps, an understatement. He even admitted during various interviews that he had affairs behind his wife’s back.
The year 2010 was one of the best and worst of Sandra Bullock’s life. That year she won an oscar, arguably the best thing that can happen to any actor, but shortly after that triumph, her marriage collapsed when she found out about her husband’s infidelity.

Of course, they got divorced and a year later during an interview, Jesse not only confirmed his cheating but also added that it was a normal and natural thing for men to do. He also claimed that he wasn’t a relationship kind of guy. Surprising.
Another TV show couple entry on this, this time from Made in Chelsea - Spencer Matthews and Louise Thompson - which are one of the most scandalous couples of the show. They had a very bumpy relationship during the filming when Spencer was cheating on Louise, making her cry all day long.
So, eventually, they broke up, but ended up maintaining an on-and-off relationship. That being said, Spencer admitted a couple of times that he had, in fact, cheated on Louise many times, so it appears that it wasn't the healthiest of relationships.
It’s time for some Love Island drama. The TV show couple, Ellie Brown and Charlie Brake seemed to be on a great track with their relationship. Despite them being on the verge of breaking up in the show, when Brown found out he was a millionaire, things changed.

Another Love Island couple drama. This time we have our eyes on Samira Mighty and Frankie Foster, so let’s see who cheated on who this time. They were a couple on the show and when Frankie got kicked off the show, Samira decided to support him and save their relationship, leaving the show willingly.

While filming TOWIE, Lucy Mecklenburgh couldn’t hide from Mario that she had been unfaithful anymore. She started crying and confessed that she had cheated on him with her ex-boyfriend while she was on a vacation in Ibiza, and Mario broke up with her immediately for her lies.
However, Mecklenburgh had managed to fix everything, they began dating again and even got engaged. But there was no happy ending for their relationship, as they broke up in 2013. The reason for them breaking up was Mario’s announcement that stated he didn’t actually want to propose to her.
Wait, what? That was everybody's response to this rumor. As a very weird rumor about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s divorce was starting to spread across social media back in January 2021, Twitter users claimed that West was seen having an affair with YouTuber Jeffree Star.
Star denied the rumors back in February, and then again in June as the internet wouldn't rest. STar said in an interview that he found the rumor entertaining. “I thought it was hilarious, I love rumors. I think they’re funny, but some girl on TikTok made it up and it went viral before I even knew.”
In 2014, the fans of Katie Price and Kieran Hayler were shocked when Katie announced that her husband had been cheating on her.

Yet, in 2017 Hayler was caught cheating again. This time he had been cheating on his wife with their children's nanny. Only a few months later, Price broke up with him for good after she revealed that he had yet another affair, this time with a 19-year-old.
Again Katie Price with her love life drama. This time poor Katie was cheated on by Danny Cipriani. They started dating in 2011 but everything came to an end when Katie caught him with someone else.
Later in her autobiography, she shared some intimate details about Danny saying - "In my experience he was a bit – erm – lean in the most obvious departments. That's why I nicknamed him Danny Chipolata. He can no longer hit the right spots on the rugby field and he certainly can't find them on a woman."
Danny Cipriani strikes again. He couldn’t stop cheating on Katie, and his next victim was Kelly Brooks. The couple dated for a good two years, but it came to an end due to Cipriani’s infidelity. It turned out that he exchanged numbers with a stripper while they were hanging out in a club with Brooks.
When she found out, she slapped him across the face (that was definitely the best thing to do at the moment) and broke up with him. Later, Brooks battled over Danny with Katie Price on Twitter, though he cheated on both of them and the wisest thing to do for them was probably teaming up.
In 2008 Hollywood was shocked after the news of Eddie Cibrian and LeAnne Rimes cheating on their spouses came to the surface. They met while shooting a movie together and this is when their romance began. Eventually, Eddie divorced his wife and LeAnne divorced her husband.

Just like all the Kardashians, Rob isn't far behind all his sisters' drama. In 2012 the press was shocked by the news that according to Kardashian, Rita Ora had cheated on him with twenty different men while they were in a relationship.
When the rumors started to gain attention, Ora denied all the accusations, stating that she didn’t know they were in a relationship. These two clearly needed to have a conversation about their status as a couple - which according to Ora, had never existed.
