Cheating allegations are sadly a part of life in Hollywood. At times, they’re nothing more than just tabloid fabrications, but there have been many occasions when they turned out to be true.
Over the years, some of the world’s biggest celebrities have been involved in cheating scandals, and while a few of them try to cover it up, there are a number of them who eventually have owned up to their infidelities, even if it cost them their relationships.
Here are 10 celebrities who have admitted to cheating:
1. Hugh Grant
Grant may have perfected the role of the polite and charming gentlemen in his movies, but his off-screen persona is very different from his characters. Eight years into his relationship with Elizabeth Hurley, Grant was caught engaging in “lewd conduct” with a prostitute.
He admitted to his wrongdoings on The Tonight Show in 1995 saying, “People have given me tons of ideas [for excuses] on this one … ‘I was under a pressure, I was overtired or I was lonely …’ But I think it would just be bollocks to hide anything like that. I did a bad thing.”
2. Jude Law
The Gattaca actor admitted to having an affair with his children’s nanny while engaged to actress Sienna Miller.
“I just want to say I am deeply ashamed and upset that I’ve hurt Sienna and the people most close to us,” he said in a 2005 statement. “I want to publicly apologize to Sienna and our respective families for the pain that I have caused.”
3. Kris Jenner
The matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenners confessed to cheating on her late husband, Robert Kardashian, during a 2011 appearance on The Tonight Show.
“When you’re very young you do a lot of stupid things. It’s probably the biggest regret of my life that I ended up having an affair,” she said.
4. LeAnn Rimes
The “How Do I Live” singer fell in love with Eddie Cibrian while they were both married to different partners. They still pursued a relationship with each other and it wasn’t until 2009 that their partners would find out.
Rimes owned up to her infidelity in a 2012 interview with Giuliana Rancic saying, “I never, ever, in my heart want to hurt anyone, but I don’t think anything can separate anything that’s super-connected. You might have had so many wonderful things with each other’s spouses in your relationships, but something along the way broke that. You can’t break what’s broken already.”
It doesn’t end here, there are more celebrities who were unfaithful to their partners, including a famous late night talk show host…
