Hollywood Cheating Scandals

By MICHELE YEO

When LeAnn Rimes sat down with Katie Couric this week, the singer didn’t shy away from discussing the less-than-ideal way in which she and husband Eddie Cibrian hooked up. The two were married to other people when they started an affair on the set of their Lifetime movie, Northern Lights. “It was a pathetic situation,” LeAnn told Katie. “It was like LeAnn, how did you get yourself into this situation? And then there was this other side of me going, ‘I love this man.’”

LeAnn and Eddie certainly aren't the only Hollywood couple to have hooked up while committed to other people. Like the Cibrians, Tori Spelling and husband Dean McDermott got together on a Lifetime movie while they were also married to other people. Tori and Dean have starred in several reality shows with their children but Dean’s son from his first marriage is forbidden from making an appearance. “I don’t want him on the reality show,” Dean’s ex, Mary Jo Eustace once told ET Canada. “And sometimes that gets in the way of his visitation.”

Brad Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston when he started shooting Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Angelina Jolie. Shortly after filming wrapped, Brad and Jen split and Brangelina was born. The couple insists they were just friends while filming but Angelina later told the New York Times she was excited for their children to see Mr. and Mrs. Smith because, “not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love.”

But not all Hollywood infidelities start on a film set. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore seemed to be happily married until he had an alleged hot tub hookup with a 22-year-old blonde last year. Ashton and Demi announced their separation shortly after the affair came to light. And one of the nastiest cheating scandals in recent memory saw Sandra Bullock blind-sided when sordid stories of her husband Jesse James’ extra-marital trysts came to light. The actress had just come off a successful awards season during which she had profusely thanked her husband for his support.
