Top 10 Celebrity Couples That Stayed Together Despite Cheating


Even after a stab in the back, some celebrity couples manage to overcome their issues and make it out the other side. Welcome to WatchMojo.com, and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 Couples that Stayed Together Despite Cheating.

For this list, we’ve included couples that stayed together in the aftermath of infidelity, and will be ignoring couples that split and rebounded. If the couples did eventually split, that's fine, so long as post-cheating they remained saddled up for at least a few years.

#10: Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom


There are few relationships more public and turbulent than one involving a Kardashian. Following the former NBA star’s marriage to Khloe after only a month of dating, the rumors began to fly about what Lamar was doing behind the scenes. After the confession of one of Odom’s mistresses, the couple filed for divorce in 2013. However, despite all of her hubby’s run-arounds, Khloe put the divorce on hold to be with her husband when he was found unresponsive in a Nevada brothel. It takes a lot commitment to sit beside your cheating husband’s hospital bed waiting for him to get well.

#9: Kathie Lee and Frank Gifford


For a couple in the news business, these two were pretty newsworthy themselves. Singer and Today Show co-host Kathie Lee married former NFL player and sports commentator Frank Gifford in 1986, despite a 23-year age gap. However, their relationship got rocky in 1997, when a tabloid magazine paid a woman to seduce Gifford in order to fabricate a juicy story. It worked, and Kathie Lee later revealed that she’d seriously considered leaving her husband at the time. However, the pair patched things up, and stayed together until Gifford’s death in 2015.

#8: Snoop Dogg and Shante Broadus


Snoop’s hustling around may have gotten him thrown in the doghouse - but he’s still got a ring on his finger. During a Rolling Stone interview detailing his formerly busy love life while he was on tour, the rapper credited Shante for always staying in his corner and not giving up on him. Though the couple filed for divorce in 2004, they reconciled shortly afterwards. Shante has opened up about the difficulties of being married to a man constantly on the road, but has held herself and her marriage together for the sake of her family and for love.

#7: Fergie and Josh Duhamel


When you’re married, strip clubs become a recipe for disaster. In 2009, a stripper popped into the media’s eye by claiming she’d slept with Duhamel after he visited the club she worked at. However, the couple publicly treated the claims as just allegations - nothing more - and responded by renewing their wedding vows. Giving cryptic answers about the scandal, Fergie pointed out that anything difficult she and her husband had gone through has made them stronger as a couple. So did the affair really happen? Neither Fergie nor Josh will say, but they did separate in 2017.

#6: David Letterman and Regina Lasko


A public apology broadcast to millions might not be the best way to break an affair to your wife. But, after being blackmailed, Letterman was forced to confess that he’d been involved with several female members of The Late Show staff. Letterman and Lasko went radio silent for months after the confession, prompting speculation that things had been called off after over 23 years together. However, in later reports, Letterman has expressed his gratitude that he and Lasko are still together and that the duo are working to rebuild the trust between them. Staying out of the spotlight probably isn’t a bad idea.

#5: Kobe and Vanessa Bryant


The Real Housewives of the NBA, anybody? Vanessa Bryant filed for divorce after a decade of being married to Kobe, after the NBA wives’ grapevine allegedly filled her in on her husband’s wandering hands. Rumored affairs with a Playboy model and a Kardashians producer put the basketball star in hot water with his wife, with the marriage cracking under the strain. But it takes more than a little dallying on the side to break up the Bryants, apparently. The couple dropped the divorce proceedings shortly after they began, and were spotted by the paparazzi acting as lovey-dovey as they come. Guess Vanessa wasn’t looking for a rebound.

#4: Carey Hart and P!nk


A couple with one of the rockiest history’s on our list, the singer and BMX athlete have broken up and made up more times than we can count. However, during one of the duo’s “off” periods, Hart was apparently visited by an exotic dancer/tattoo artist named Michelle “Bombshell” McGee. Flying out to see him in Las Vegas, McGee allegedly slept with Hart after a convention, during a point where he and P!nk weren’t speaking. It doesn't seem to have meant much to either of the famous pair, as they got back together in 2009, and things have been relatively smooth sailing ever since.

#3: Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley


What were you thinking? This was the question on everybody’s mind after the charming British actor's mugshot and news of his dalliance with a prostitute on LA’s Sunset Strip made the news. The famously bashful and soft-spoken actor was seeing actress and model Elizabeth Hurley at the time, who stated she felt like “she’d been shot” when she heard the news. After an awkward apology by Grant on the Tonight Show, the couple fumbled through trying to repair the damage and managed to stay together, but ultimately ended their relationship five years later for unrelated reasons.

#2: Beyoncé and Jay-Z


Go call who with the good hair? After dropping her album Lemonade, Queen Bey had a hurricane of rumors flying about husband Jay-Z’s supposed cheating. Cryptic lyrics had fans going wild with curiosity about what exactly had gone on that inspired such an emotionally charged album. Some claimed it was Beyoncé’s way of dealing with her hurt, and others insisted that she was calling out Jay Z without making a scene, but nobody quite knew what exactly was going on. The couple hasn’t been without their cheating rumors, but on stage and off, they’ve stayed strong and are still ruling the modern music scene.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions.
- Hank Baskett and Kendra Wilkinson
- Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott


#1: Bill and Hillary Clinton


Yes, Bill did have sexual relations with that woman. From 1995 to 1997, then President Bill Clinton carried on a secret sexual relationship with a White House intern that the masses just couldn't stop talking about. Though some political analysts have speculated that Hillary knew about the dalliance before the phone confessions were leaked, she still admitted in an interview with CNN that dealing with the affair while still balancing her duties was extremely painful. Nevertheless, the couple stuck together through the media firestorm and came out the other side, even after one of the biggest political scandals in American history.
