Though Hollywood often presents us with fairy tales, celebrity couples rarely get their happily ever afters. From Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton to Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison, these stars caused major scandals by cheating on their equally famous significant others and their affairs rocked Tinseltown to the core.
Here are 21 most notorious celebrity cheaters of all time:
Former California Governor, professional bodybuilder and famous actor Arnold Schwarzenegger and his estranged wife Maria Shriver separated in 2011 after she found out that he had fathered a love child with a longtime member of their household staff in the 1990’s.
Although Schwarzenegger said that he told his wife about the affair after leaving the governor’s office, he failed to mention that he had confessed to her only because she had confronted him with the information. Here’s what he said about his betrayal of his wife:
“I think it was the stupidest thing I’ve done in the whole relationship. It was terrible. It inflicted tremendous pain on Maria and unbelievable pain on the kids.”
But that’s not all. The Terminator star also admitted to having a hot affair with Red Sonja actress Brigitte Nielsen while he and Shriver were dating. Actually, they were also living together at the time the affair began.
Shriver and Schwarzenegger ended their relationship after 25 years of marriage.
