Celeb Couples Who Stuck Together Even After A Cheating Scandal

Celebrity couples are oftentimes under a lot of scrutiny. Depending on how buzzworthy their relationships are, they could be at the center of constant drama. And when a scandal threatens to blow the whole relationship to bits, the public eats it right up.

Cheating scandals tend to be the worst. They can ruin relationships that seem solid. And while plenty of celebs broke it off after cheating rumors surfaced, the couples in this list held strong.

Woody Harrelson and Laura Louie.

Back in 2002, Harrelson had a drunken foursome, which could've definitely ended his relationship with Laura Louie. But instead, they worked past it, got married in 2008, and have been together ever since.

Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright.

Though the news hit that Taylor cheated on then-girlfriend Cartwright with Faith Stowers during Season 6 of Vanderpump Rules, it didn't spell the end for their relationship. In fact, they ended up getting married in 2019.

Cardi B and Offset.

The rumors ended up being true, though Cardi decided to stand by Offset regardless. They split briefly in 2018 and 2019, but got back together, and welcomed their second child earlier this year.

Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

No one really wanted to believe that Jay-Z would cheat on longtime partner Beyoncé, but when she seemingly confirmed the rumors on 2016's "Lemonade," mentioning "Becky with the good hair," fans went wild. Jay-Z later responded with "4:44," confirming that the cheating did, in fact, happen.

Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade.

Unlike the other couples in this list, Union was the "other woman" in the relationship. When they first began dating in 2019, Wade was in the process of divorcing ex-wife Siovaughn Funches. This ended up making that divorce a lot more dramatic, but Wade and Union ended up staying strong.

Fergie and Josh Duhamel.

When a dancer named Nicole Forrester claimed she'd had an affair with Duhamel, his marriage with Fergie hadn't even lasted a year. But the pair denied it, and ended up staying together for a decade before ultimately splitting in 2019.

David Letterman and Regina Lasko.

Letterman had no choice but to confess his infidelity on live television, after being extorted for $2 million. Though, as Letterman says, Regina Lasko "has been horribly hurt by my behavior," they were able to work through it.

Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom.

Kardashian and Odom married quickly, and their relationship miraculously lasted four years. During that time, Odom stepped out, and while they stayed together initially in spite of this, it ultimately didn't work out for them.

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson.

Unfortunately for Khloe, Odom's infidelity wouldn't be the last time she'd be cheated on. The cheating rumors between Kardashian and Thompson sprouted up, and only got worse when it turned out that Thompson had cheated with Jordyn Woods, a friend of Kylie Jenner's.

The pair have broken things off multiple times, but are expecting their second child via surrogate this year.

The Twilight couple had a fling offscreen throughout filming the four movies of the franchise. But not long after that, Stewart was caught red-handed having an affair with Rupert Sanders, the (married) director of Snow White and the Huntsman, a movie in which Stewart starred.

They stayed together through 2012 (the year the affair happened), but have since split and moved on.

David and Shannon Beador.

Shannon Beador revealed that her husband had been unfaithful during The Real Housewives of Orange County's 10th season. They initially tried to work through things, but ended up filing for divorce in 2017.

Jude Law and Sienna Miller.

Law and Miller's relationship probably shouldn't have lasted as long as it did, all things considered. In 2005, Law revealed that he'd been having an affair with his children's nanny. Surprisingly, this didn't spell the end for them.

In 2005, Miller also had an affair on Law, with Daniel Craig, even going as far as to leaving him a romantic voicemail. Though the two split and got back together between 2006 and 2009, they kept strong until 2011, when they parted ways for good.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick.

In 2009, it was revealed that Disick had been texting a mystery woman saved to his phone as his "wife." Through all the tumult of their relationship, they ended up staying together for a good number of years after that, finally splitting in 2015.

Larsa and Scottie Pippen.

Scottie claimed that Larsa cheated on him with Future, and while they did file for divorce in 2017, they patched things back up. Their marriage lasted a few more years, before they hung things up in 2021.

The couple confirmed and addressed the cheating scandal on True Tori in 2014, which also documented how they patched things up. McDermott also revealed that he was "disgusted" in his behavior. They're still married to this day.

Kevin and Eniko Hart.

Hart fessed up on radio to cheating on his then-pregnant wife in 2017, publicly asking for her forgiveness. This blip in their relationship remained just that, and the two are still married to this day.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

The cheating rumors were pretty constant over the course of their 25-year union, but Sarah Jessica Parker doesn't seem to be too broken up about any of it. In fact, their marriage has outlasted any of the rumors (and confirmations).

Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley.

In 1995, Grant was embroiled in a scandal involving a sex worker named Divine Brown. To Grant's credit, he owned up to what had transpired.

Grant was dating Hurley at the time, who decided to stay by him during the fallout. Their relationship ended up lasting another five years, to boot.

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott

Jenner and Scott actually weathered a few cheating rumors over the course of their relationship. But throughout all the rumors and speculation, the two stayed strong, and have two kids together, with their son being born earlier this year.
