Top 10 Celebrities That Cheated With Assistants or Nannies

Oh, no they didn’t! Yeah, yeah they did. Welcome to, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Celebrities That Cheated with Assistants or Nannies.

For this list, we’re focusing on notable celebrities that allegedly or reportedly strayed from their partners to hook up with the help.

#10: Ozzy Osbourne

First and foremost, this musician is known as the lead singer of heavy metal band Black Sabbath. Yet Ozzy Osbourne is also one of the 21st century’s most famous reality stars, and a man with a long history of cheating. After the 1985 birth of son Jack, the Prince of Darkness reportedly hooked up with the family nanny, and his wife Sharon has revealed that she has actually caught TWO nannies in bed with him – at different times. Unsurprisingly, Ozzy Osbourne has been treated for “sex addiction” in recent years, as his latest vice has put yet another strain on his on-again/off-again marriage.

#9: Robert John “Mutt” Lange

In the ‘80s, this iconic producer sat at the recording console of many rock and roll classics, most notably AC/DC’s iconic album “Back in Black.” In the ‘90s, Robert John “Mutt” Lange hooked up with an up and coming country star named Shania Twain, both professionally and personally. The pairing produced a number of landmark country albums and even a son. Yet, during the marriage, Mr. Lange set his eyes on his wife’s personal secretary and best friend, Marie-Anne Thiébaud. When it was all said and done, however, Shania had the last laugh by marrying Thiébaud’s former husband and fully distancing herself from the appropriately named Mutt.

#8: The-Dream

After only five months of marriage to pop star and actress Christina Milian, The-Dream found himself in a nightmare, or so it would seem. In September of 2009, he put a ring on Milian’s finger at Las Vegas’ Little White Chapel, but he soon focused his gaze on personal assistant Melissa Santiago. The-Dream’s questionable behavior led to him filing for divorce, which unfortunately transpired just a few days before the birth of the couple's- that is, his and Christina’s, daughter. He may be a respected rapper and producer, but The-Dream most certainly works in mysterious ways.

#7: Robin Williams

In the late ‘70s, this late comedian was known for seriously wilding out, both in film and on stage. But then Robin Williams got hitched to Valeria Velardi- a union that lasted a full ten years until the family nanny got in the way. It’s no secret that nanny affairs typically don’t last in Hollywood, yet Williams actually married Marsha Garces, as she was pregnant with both emotion AND child. The relationship lasted over twenty years, proving that some nanny hook-ups are fueled by pure love, even if they began under questionable circumstances.

#6: Gavin Rossdale

Back in the mid-‘90s, Rossdale became a legit rock star as the front man for Bush. Meanwhile, across the pond, Gwen Stefani was evolving into a musical icon with her band No Doubt. After several years together, the pair married in 2002, just as Gwen was about to embark on a solo career. In 2016, however, the pair’s divorce was finalized after details of Gavin’s three-year affair emerged. At the center of the controversy was Australian nanny Mindy Mann, who obviously gained the attention of Rossdale, so much so that he carried on the affair while raising three children. Gwen ultimately walked, and she talked a bit, too.

#5: Heidi Klum

After seven years of marriage, this German model and fashion mogul separated from husband Seal – of “Kiss from a Rose” fame. In a revealing TMZ interview, however, Seal claimed that Heidi Klum had hooked up with her South African bodyguard, Martin Kristen, a man she later dated for 18 months post-divorce. The two made plenty of headlines during their relatively brief romance, and Heidi reportedly took care of Mr. Kristen financially upon their 2014 split. Perhaps he was a bit more satisfied with the split than Heidi’s previous partner.

#4: Mick Jagger

For decades upon decades, this knight of the realm has sustained a legendary career with The Rolling Stones. During his run, Mick Jagger also fathered a few children – eight to be exact – with five different women. According to reports, Mick once cheated on long-time partner Jerry Hall with a new nanny, and he didn’t waste any time as the encounter took place within the first 48 hours of meeting the young lady. Claire Houseman later recalled the charming demeanor of Mr. Jagger, and how they had a fairly brief session… on the breakfast bar.

#3: Jude Law

During the production of the 2004 film “Alfie,” this charming actor commenced a relationship with co-star Sienna Miller. They became engaged not long after, but as it happens Jude was also romancing Daisy Wright, the nanny that his ex-wife, Sadie Frost, hired to look over their children. In fact, one of the kids reportedly busted Jude in bed with said nanny in 2005. This led to a public letter of apology to Sienna, which is both honorable and embarrassing all at the same time. But, at least Jude owned up to his mistake, and he even briefly reunited with Sienna in 2009 - although by 2011 the coupling had fizzled out once more.

#2: Ben Affleck

While this actor and director has never issued a public letter of apology like Jude Law, his nanny scandal and divorce have been well documented in pop culture. Despite a decade of marriage and three children together, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner separated in 2015, and Christine Ouzounian became an integral part of the narrative. In fact, Ben and Christine once flew to Las Vegas on Tom Brady’s private jet, which didn’t seem to please Mrs. Brady aka Gisele Bundchen. That same year, Christine reportedly planned to reveal all, but as of 2017 few details ever emerged.

Before we unveil our top pick, here is an honorable mention:

Peter Cook

#1: Arnold Schwarzenegger

From Mr. Universe to American movie star to California governor, Arnie has lived quite a life. But in 2011, Schwarzenegger’s image took a major blow as a shocking nanny scandal ended his 25-year marriage with Maria Shriver. Unsurprisingly, Arnold wrote a book in the aftermath and hit the talk show circuit. However the specifics of the affair, and the fact that he fathered a child with “Patty” Baena, opened up his life to major public scrutiny, especially since the Guatemalan maid had been with the family for 20 years. Some celebrities get caught in the act and move on, but the fallout left Arnold with more to worry about given the consequences of his cheating.
