Depending on the circumstances, celebrity infidelity can turn into a straight up sex scandal but it can also make their relationship stronger. Here is a list of celebrity couples that straight up powered through the cheating, lies, and scandals and are proving everybody wrong.


1. Josh and Anna Duggar
When Love Began:
 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar met Anna Duggar when she was a teenager at a Christian home school convention in 2006. They got married two years later at Buford Grove Baptist Church in Hillard, Florida.
Who Cheated:  Dark secrets began to unravel in 2015 when a 2006 police report revealed that Josh had been investigated for allegedly sexually assaulting five young girls (two of which were later revealed to be his own sisters).  Anna stayed by his side despite the shocking scandal but it didn’t end there. Months later, Josh was then one of 32 million disgraced spouses who were outed as a result of a hack on the website Ashley Madison. The website’s core mission is literally cheating and it’s slogan “Life is Short. Have an Affair” was apparently just too catchy for Josh to turn down.
How They Dealt With It: Josh released a statement on his family blog, and wrote “I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife.” He later checked into a treatment center.
Where They Are Today: Some may think this is too much for anyone to power through but after nine years and two major scandals the couple is still “rebuilding their life together” and gave birth to their fifth child in 2017.

Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing wife, Anna! ❤ I am so thankfull for you and the fact that you’re still by my side. You’re an amazing mother to our four, and soon to be five, children! They can’t have a better mom. You’re the best! ❤ I promise you to always be yours. There is no one who can take you’re place. I also promise that I will try, everyday, to be a better husband and father! You deserve it so much! I love you, my dear Anna. Forever. 👫❤ Happy Mother’s Day, mom. ❤ Thank you for all your support the last years. And especially a huge thank you for being there for Anna. That you will lift her up when she feels down, and always help her with everything. You are the best mom I, and the other 18, could have. You loved everyone of us as much as you can and never picked a favorite! I love you, momma. Thank you. ❤ I hope you both have a blessed day! You both deserve it. 💋 Josh

How They Dealt With It: Mcdermott publicly admitted and apologized to cheating and entered into rehab for sex addiction.

Where They Are Today: Mcdermott’s infidelity became a major plot line for their Lifetime reality show True Tori. Mcdermott proposed to Spelling for the third time in 2016 and the couple has five children together.

Who Cheated: The  former pimp has been accused of cheating on his wife dozens of times and the marriage hit the rocks in 2004 when the couple filed for divorce.
How They Dealt With It:  The couple stayed relatively quiet about the rumors until they were close to divorce. Snoop admitted that the break was his fault, explaining “I cheated on her. That’s the worst thing you could possibly do—lose somebody’s trust who really loves you.”
Where They Are Today: The couple ended up reconciling and and although Snoop has been photographed with other mystery women throughout the years they continue to power through it.

How They Dealt With It:
Williams is always ready and happy to discuss celebrity scandals and hot topics. She is also not one to shy around her own drama. Williams has written about her marriage with Kevin Hunter multiple times, even explaining how she found out Hunter was cheating on her in 2013 and how it made them “stronger.”

Who Cheated: Rumors have swirled that Jay has been unfaithful since 2005, linking him to stars like Rihanna, LIV, Rita Ora and the list goes on. There is even a rumor that Jay got Rihanna pregnant and the child is living somewhere in the Caribbean. Rumors that the couple was close to splitting in 2014 were fueled when the infamous footage of Beyoncé’s sister Solange kicking Jay-Z in an elevator went viral. It was rumored that the kick was because of his relationship with Ora. The rumors continued to spiral with TV star Casey Cohen, and Rachel Roy being added to the list of his hook ups.
How They Dealt With It:  Despite the rumors, videos of them arguing, and elevator kicks, Beyoncé would shut down rumors with a stylized post on IG making it seem as if they couldn’t be happier.

8. Hillary and Bill Clinton
When Love Began: Former President Bill Clinton and president hopeful Hillary Clinton were both in law school at Yale when they locked eyes.

But she conveyed a sense of strength and self-possession I had rarely seen in anyone, man or woman.”
Who Cheated: The Clintons are used to being in the public eye discussing political and global issues. But nobody could forget the TV sitcom-worthy scandal that they faced while Bill was in office in the mid 1990s that revolved around a stained blue dress. The White House was never the same after allegations that the president was having an affair with his 22 year-old intern Monica Lewinsky hit Washington.
How They Dealt With It: Bill infamously denied these allegations proclaiming he “did not have sexual relations with that woman” and Hillary supported her man, but America wanted answers. Lewinsky’s meeting with prosecutors and her bodily fluid stained dress ultimately led to his impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice. Despite the trial, Hillary stayed with Bill despite his adulterous ways and in an interview with CNN she recalled, “It was really hard. It was painful. And I was so supported by my friends. My friends just rallied around.”
Where They Are Today: Since Hillary lost the presidential election the two have continued to support each other. They have one daughter, Chelsea, who works for the Clinton foundation.

Who cheated? The couple was expecting their first child together when they had to overcome their first sex scandal together.

15. David and Victoria Beckham
When love began: David and Victoria Beckham are so hot together it’s borderline unfair. The two have been dating since 1997 and were first introduced to each other at a charity football match.
Who cheated: Their beautiful and picture perfect family almost makes us forget all about that cheating scandal David had back in 2004 with his assistant Rebecca Loos. David and Loos were photographed at a night club together and the British tabloids went wild. Confirmed accounts by Loos and her family were published, other women came forward alleging that they too hooked up with the soccer player and their nanny was even quoted describing the fights she witnessed between the couple.
How they dealt with it: Throughout it all, the Beckham’s stood their ground that the relationship was happy and healthy, found a lawyer and successfully sued tabloids and even the nanny.

Who cheated:  Nobody could believe it when rumors and allegations that Bill could possibly be an actual monster went rampant. Bill has been accused of drug facilitated sexual assault, sexual battery, child sexual abuse, and sexual misconduct by more than 50 women including celebrities like Janice Dickinson.

Deal?” I guess that was no deal because Hoback straight blasted him on social media and the screenshot went viral.
How they dealt with it:  James never responded to the reports and let the whole thing blow over.
Where are they now: Nonetheless, Brinson seems unbothered by the rumors saying she knows he would never cheat and the couple is seemingly happy.


18. Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson

How they dealt with it: When a fan asked on twitter “I wonder how many times [Tyler] has cheated on [Catelynn],” Tyler retweeted the tweet, (sarcastically?) adding, “More times than I could count.”
