10 Celebrities who married their mistresses
Some of the best known celebrity couples didn’t exactly start their lives together as free and single individuals looking for love. In fact, there are quite a few celebrities who seem to have ‘forgotten’ they already had a partner when they started dating their current ones. Perhaps celebrities are just too busy being famous to mention to their partner that they wanted to end the relationship. Whatever their reasons for cheating on their significant others, here are ten celebs who ended up marrying their mistresses.
1. Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys
According to Alicia Keys, Swizz Beats and his then wife, the R&B singer Mashonda, had already decided to go their separate ways when they started dating in 2008. It seems, though, that no one had let Mashonda in on this news. Despite the shock revelation that Alicia keys and Swizz Beats had become an item, the two married in 2010 and now have two children together.
2. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
The pirates of The Caribbean star, Johnny Depp, cheated on the mother of his two children when he apparently fell for Amber Heard while filming the movie The Rum Diary in 2009. Depp’s affair with Amber Heath ended his relationship of 14 years with Vanessa Paradis.
3. Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa
Bruce Springsteen fell for a member of the E Street Band, Patti Scialfa, while they were performing together in the aptly named “Tunnel of Love Express Tour” in 1988. Bruce, however, had a wife waiting at home for him. Springsteen and his left at home wife, Julianna Phillips, were divorced by the time the tour came to a close!
4. Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston
When Justin Theroux started dating Aniston, he was still with his girlfriend of 14 years, Heidi Bivens. It’s hard to hide relationships when you are a celeb and, when rumours started to circulate about the Theroux / Anniston affair, Bivens’ mother publicly reminded Theroux that he was still with her daughter. Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston married in 2015.
5. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Jennifer Aniston hasn’t always had things all her own way, because Brad Pitt cheated on her with Angelina Jolie. Brad and Angelina allegedly began their affair when Brad and Jennifer were still married. Jennifer Anniston left Brad Pitt in 2005 and Pitt and Jolie eventually got married in 2014.
6. Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn
Woody Allen created one of the biggest scandals that Hollywood has ever known when he cheated on long term partner Mia Farrow. The reason why this affair made such big news was that Allen was having an affair with Mia Farrows adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn! At the time of the affair, Allen was 56 and Soon-Yi was just 21. The scandalous par lasted, though; they got married in 1997 and are still together today.
7. Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles
Regardless of the fact that they had both got married to other people, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles were, allegedly, in an on off romance from the day they first met in 1970 at a polo match. Eventually, they both split from their spouses and made their affair public, and they married in 2005. In one interview, Charles wife, Princess Diana, said of her marriage to Prince Charles; “There were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded”.
8. Dean McDermott & Tori Spelling
It was virtually love at first sight for Dean McDermott & Tori Spelling when they met on the set of the 2005 TV movie “Mind over Murder”. The only problem was that they were both already married to other people. McDermott and Spelling didn’t let that minor inconvenience get in their way; they both filed for divorce just a month after they met each other and were married the following year.
9. Kevin Federline and Britney Spears
The whirlwind romance between Kevin Federline and Britney Spears ended badly and it didn’t get off to a conventional start either. The pair’s affair began while Kevin Federline was a backup dancer for Spear’s and within three months of meeting, they were engaged. It later emerged that Federline was already engaged to the mother of his two children, Shar Jackson. Federline and Spears married in 20054, but divorced in 2006. The relationship ended with an unseemly battle for custody of their two sons.
10. Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr
When country star Jason Aldean was caught kissing American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr in 2012, he assured his wife that it alcohol was to blame for his transgression. Aldean and his wife tried to pretend that all was in their marriage for another year, but it still didn’t stop the divorce going ahead in 2013 and the subsequent marriage of Aldean and Kerr.
