David Boreanez

‘Bones’ star David Boreanaz, 43, claims his 2010 affair with Tiger Wood’s mistress Rachel Uchitel, 37, made his marriage to Jaime Bergman, 36, stronger.

Boreanaz went public with the affair when explicit text messages between him and Uchitel were leaked. Just a few months later, he was slapped with a sexual harassment lawsuit claiming he tried it on with an extra on his show. The suit was resolved and, despite Boreanaz’s many indiscretions, the couple got on with their lives.

They now have two children, Jaden, 9, and Bella, 2.

Bill Clinton

He lied when he said he “did not have sexual relations” with then 22-year-old intern Monica Lewinsky but former President Bill Clinton, 65, managed to hold onto his wife, Hillary Clinton, 64, after his indiscretions were leaked to the press.

The late 1990s scandal rocked the nation and his career but his longtime wife -- who is now the Secretary of State -- stood by his side.

She later admitted in her 2003 memoirs that it was one of the most difficult decisions of her life and she initially wanted to “wring Bill's neck” after the news had gotten out.

Kobe Bryant

L.A. Lakers’ star Kobe Bryant, 33, was accused of raping a 19-year-old hotel employee back in 2003. While the case was eventually drop when his accuser refused to testify in court, Bryant later admitted to having a sexual encounter with her.

His wife Vanessa -- who received a $4 million ring from her cheating hubby during the ordeal -- endured the humiliation and eventually forgave him.

However, the pair filed divorce papers in December 2011 after Vanessa reportedly got fed up with her husband’s numerous infidelities.

Jude Law

In 2005, Jude Law, 39, was caught with his pants down after cheating on then fiancee Sienna Miller, 30, with his nanny. The actress swiftly ended their engagement and walked away from their relationship. However, the couple reignited romance rumors three years after they were spotted vacationing together in Barbados.

Despite going for round two, the Alfie co-stars’ romance never really took off again. Sienna is expecting her first child with actor Tom Sturridge, 26, and Jude is dating British actress Ruth Wilson, 30.

Eric Benet

Halle Berry, 45, is about to enter what she hopes is a life of married bliss with fiancé Olivier Martinez, 46, but her romance wasn’t so sweet when she was with ex-husband Eric Benet, 41.

In 2002, the ‘Catwoman’ star faced public humiliation when Benet admitted to a string of affairs and blamed it on his sex addiction.

Surprisingly, Berry stood by his side and vowed to work on her marriage. However, Berry finally gave out and and filed for divorce in 2004. The proceeding was finalized one year later.

Hugh Grant

Not only did Hugh Grant, 51, cheat on his stunning girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley, 46, but he did it with a prostitute.

In 1995, the British actor was at the center of one of the most humiliating celebrity scandals of all time when he was caught receiving oral sex from street walker Divine Brown in a car on Sunset Boulevard.

Adding insult to injury, Grant -- who pleaded guilty to the charges -- was dating one of the world’s most beautiful women at the time.

Although the ‘Bedazzled’ actress forgave her cheating beau, their relationship didn't stand the test of time and they broke up shortly after the incident. However, both exes have remained firm friends ever since.
