Five famous couples who were able to overcome reports of infidelity. Check the article below for more information about these 5 celebrity couples.
It’s no secret that having a long, lasting marriage in Hollywood isn’t the easiest task.
Between the public scrutiny, unpredictable work schedules and more than a little temptation, so many pairs just can’t seem to make it work.
However, that doesn’t mean that couples have to throw in the towel the minute speculation surfaces about their marriage.
In the wake of Beyoncé’s sixth studio album titled Lemonade, some fans have immediately begun to wonder if those juicy lyrics about love, heartbreak and cheating could be about her relationship with Jay Z. For the record, neither party has ever confirmed marital troubles and Beyoncé’s dad believes the album is “talking about you and everybody that is you.”
But with the recent speculation, we decided to take a look at five famous couples who were able to overcome reports of infidelity. As a wise person once said, they didn’t say marriage would be easy. But they did say it would be worth it.
1. Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott
Fans of True Tori know that the couple has had one roller coaster of a romance. But after a lot of therapy, hard work and dedication, Tori is ready to move forward following her husband’s cheating. “I can 100 percent move past the infidelity,” she shared with E! News’ Jason Kennedy and Maria Menounos. “I believe that women have the power and it was a choice and people can judge me and say, ‘Well she stayed with him.’ But I think it’s more powerful to make the choice to try to heal the relationship and work on it and work through it if you truly love someone.”
2. Snoop Dogg and Shante Broadus
In a revealing interview with Rolling Stone back in 2013, the rapper opened up about a phase in his life where he wasn’t exactly faithful. “I did a Playboy tour, and I had a bus follow me with 10 bitches on it. I could fire a bitch, f–k a bitch, get a new ho: It was my program,” he shared with the publication. “It was never about the money; it was about the fascination of being a pimp.” Through it all, Snoop’s wife stayed with him. “I love her to this day because she coulda shook out on a n–ga, but she stayed in my corner,” he explained. “So when I decided to let it go, she was still there.”
3. Fergie and Josh Duhamel
Nine months into their marriage, the Black Eyed Peas singer faced tabloid allegations that her husband was unfaithful in the marriage. During a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey, Fergie ultimately admitted that the reports only made the pair stronger. “It was difficult. When you go through difficult times, it really makes you stronger as a unit, as a partnership,” she explained. “It does for us, anyways. Our love today is a deeper love, definitely.” As for Josh, he has always denied any one-night stands calling them “absolutely ridiculous.” “What it did, is it put me in check and made me realize, OK, what kind of man do you want to be?” he said on Oprah’s Next Chapter. “I’m actually thankful that it did happen, because, in a lot of ways it made me straighten my a– out.”
4. David Letterman and Regina Lasko
After it was revealed that David had an intimate relationship with former Late Show assistant Stephanie Birkitt, the late-night host apologized to his wife on television in front of millions of viewers. “She has been horribly hurt by my behavior, and when something happens like that, if you hurt a person and it’s your responsibility, you try to fix it,” he explained in 2009.”And at that point, there’s only two things that can happen. Either you’re going to make some progress and get it fixed, or you’re going to fall short and perhaps not get it fixed, so let me tell you folks, I got my work cut out for me.” The couple remains together today.
5. Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Bryant
After the Los Angeles Lakers player admitted to infidelity back in 2003, Kobe reportedly dropped $4 million on a make-up ring for his wife. In addition, the couple held a $50,000 recommitment ceremony just two years later. While the couple filed (and then called off) their divorce, both parties remain together. “I am happy to say that Vanessa and I are moving on with our lives together as a family,” the NBA player said. “When the show ends and the music stops, the journey is made beautiful by having that someone to share it with. Thank you all for your support and prayers! Much luv, Mamba out.”
