It’s no secret that some of Hollywood’s most A-list celebrities have been caught up in cheating scandals over the years. And while some of these illicit romances have led to lengthy marriages, there are others that have been just as fleeting and they were destructive. We’ve seen co-stars hooking up on set and celebs getting frisky at after-parties, but it seems as though celebrities also get caught out with the help…
Yes, many famous faces have entered into extra-marital affairs with their employees and staff members over the years. While they thought they could get away with their secret relationships with their nanny or their late-night trysts with their bodyguards, we all know that there are no secrets in Hollywood. So if you want to keep up to date with all of the stars who were caught cheating on their celebrity partners with their staff, we’ve got the scoop.
Heidi Klum Ditched Seal After Seven Years of Marriage to Date Her Bodyguard
When Heidi Klum and Seal got hitched in 2005, the world was a little shocked. While nobody would have put the iconic supermodel and the legendary singer together to begin with, it all made sense when we later saw them as husband and wife. They seemed like the perfect duo, but it seems as though there were scandals going on behind closed doors. Especially involving Heidi and her bodyguard, Martin Kirsten.
After seven years of marriage, Heidi and Seal confirmed in 2012 that they were getting divorced. And when Heidi quickly moved on with Martin and made their new relationship known to the world, eyebrows were raised. Seal later claimed that Heidi had been “fornicating with the help” during their marriage, which made rumors of her infidelity even louder in the Hollywood circle. Heidi and Martin ultimately dated for two years, before they broke up.
David Beckham’s Former Assistant Claims That She Had an Affair With the Soccer Star
Many have wondered how the dream couple David and Victoria Beckham have maintained their incredible relationship and marriage for 22 years, and while we all assumed that they were made for each other, rumors have swirled around them over the years. In fact, David’s former personal assistant still claims to this day that she was involved in an affair with the soccer star.
Rebecca Loos worked for Beckham in 2003, and while she was fired a few months later she then sold her story to the press. This story claimed that she had been in a four-month-long relationship with David during his marriage to Victoria and that they had been together behind her back. While David denied the claims and called them “ludicrous” he did not choose to take any legal action against Loos.
Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman Hired a Nanny for Their Kids and Now She’s His Wife
After meeting on the set of the 1996 movie Gattaca, Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman fell in love. They married in 1998 and later welcomed two kids into the world. To help the two busy actors cope with their personal and professional lives, they hired a nanny by the name of Ryan Shawhughes to look after their children – but the circumstances around this arrangement are still pretty blurry.
When Uma and Ethan separated in 2003, rumors suggested that Ethan had been having an affair with Ryan. These rumors certainly didn’t get any quieter when he then started dating their former nanny and married her in 2008. Ethan has always denied that he was unfaithful to Uma, but has been quoted as saying “People have such a childish view of monogamy and fidelity… as opposed to a recognition that our species is not monogamous.”
Tarek El Moussa Dated the Nanny Four Months After His Divorce From Christina, but He Denies Cheating
There was once a time when Tarek and Christina El Moussa were flippin’ and floppin’ their way through Hollywood. Their show Flip or Flop thrust them into the limelight and they seemed to work well together on a professional and personal level. But that all changed when they got divorced in 2018.
Just four months after Tarek and Christina parted ways, Tarek and his 23-year-old nanny started dating. Alyssa Logan had been working for the couple previously, and many thought that the timescale just didn’t quite add up. It was claimed that they had been having an affair while Tarek was still with his wife, but he has denied that there was any crossover. He confirmed that “I did date her for a month” after the split, though.
Ben Affleck Supposedly Invited the Nanny on His Trip to the Bahamas With Jennifer Garner
Most people know Ben Affleck for his work as an actor, but it’s hard to deny that he’s a serious ladies’ man. He’s gone from the likes of Jennifer Lopez to Gwyneth Paltrow to Jennifer Garner and then back to Jennifer Lopez again – but in between, he’s been caught out with the nanny. These rumors first appeared after Ben’s separation from Jennifer Garner in 2015, and they got even more intense when the nanny herself went to the press.
Although Ben has denied cheating on his wife with the nanny, Christine Ouzounian has come clean about what supposedly went down in this A-list love triangle. She claims that she was asked to vacation with the family in the Bahamas in 2015 to look after the kids, but she spent more time with Ben than she did with the children. She’s even spoken about secret romps in the shower, and how Jennifer started to get suspicious of their closeness during this trip.
Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani’s 13-Year Marriage Broke Down After His Affair With the Nanny
They’re both quirky. They’re both alternatives. And they were both in one of the most iconic pop culture couples of all time. Yes, Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani seemed to be made for each other. And after 13 years of marriage, we thought these guys would go the long haul. However, that all changed when it was revealed that Gavin had been involved with the couple’s nanny.
When rumors of Gwen’s affair with their 20-something-year-old Australian nanny started to make the rounds, news of their breakup began to make more sense. Mindy Mann had been working for the family for three years when the rumors started, and apparently, it all came to a head when another one of their nannies found explicit photos and text messages between Mindy and Gavin. Ultimately, Gwen and Gavin’s marriage couldn’t survive.
Bill Clinton’s Affair With Intern Monica Lewinsky Ultimately Led to Him Being Impeached
Bill Clinton will forever go down in history as the 42nd President of the United States, but he will also go down in history as the second president to ever be impeached from office. While he was later acquitted of perjury and obstruction of justice, his affair with White House intern Melanie Lewinsky certainly affected his career. Not so much his marriage, though, as he’s still with Hillary Clinton today.
Monica was a 22-year-old intern when she entered into an affair with Bill Clinton, and while they both denied the claims originally – Monica later provided proof of their intimacy. The president was then forced to backtrack on his famous quote “I did not have sexual relations with that woman” and admitted that he had an “improper physical relationship” with the intern. Through it all, Hillary Clinton stood by her husband’s side.
Jude Law Cheated on Fiancée Sienna Miller With the Nanny of His Three Children
With his beautiful English accent and his stunning baby blues, it should come as no surprise to learn that Jude Law has had no trouble with the ladies over the years. But while he may seem perfect in every way, it seems as though he does have a few flaws. In 2005, the actor made headlines when it was claimed that he’d had an affair with his nanny while engaged to fellow actress Sienna Miller.
Jude and Sienna got engaged in 2004, the same year that he hired nanny Daisy Wright to look after his three children. But we guess she wasn’t just looking after the kids, as news of the affair quickly made the rounds, and Daisy was ultimately fired from her posting. The nanny noted that “I was extremely upset about the way I was dismissed just like that from my job… I felt like Jude should have fought for me.”
James Cameron Reportedly Had an Affair With Titanic Actress Suzy Amis While Shooting the Movie
If you know anything about James Cameron, you might know that he’s married to Suzy Amis, and has been since 2000. But what you might not realize is that before that he was married to Linda Hamilton – and rumors suggest that these two relationships overlap each other slightly. In fact, Linda has claimed that her ex-husband actually cheated on her with Suzy Amis while they were filming Titanic.
While Suzy wasn’t James’ nanny or bodyguard, she did have a small role in the movie – so she did technically work for him. It’s been suggested that they entered into an affair during long shoot days and while they were working away from home, and that affair ultimately ended in a divorce for James and Linda Hamilton. Although Linda must have been upset, she did walk away with a $50 million divorce settlement.

But one thing all of us know is that he’s currently married to Kayte Walsh, and has been since 2011 – just after his divorce from Camille. While those dates are pretty close together, it’s been reported that they actually overlapped.
Kayte was working as a flight attendant for the actor when they first met, and it seems as though she won him over completely. So much so that he entered into a six-month-long affair with her while he was still with Camille. Kelsey has noted that they spent a “magical night” together in London when they met and that their physical and emotional affair continued until he decided to call things off with his wife.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is the man, the myth, the legend, and he’s iconic in the realm of popular culture. And while his talent and muscles are celebrated, he has been berated over the years due to his infidelities. That’s because he not only had an affair with his housekeeper Mildred Patricia “Patty” Baena, but he also fathered a child with her. This news was released to the public in 2011 – just after his 25-year marriage to Maria Shiver came to an end.
Maria didn’t know that Arnie was having an affair under her own roof, and it seems as though Arnold himself didn’t know that he had fathered a child either. It’s been noted that it took him around seven or eight years to realize that his housekeeper’s child looked a little like him. It was then that he put two and two together, and realized that his secret affair had a very obvious repercussion.
Robin Williams Cheated on His Wife With His Nanny Before Making Her His Second Wife
The late, great Robin Williams will forever be missed. His comedic talents and his infectious smile made all of us laugh, but it seems as though he wasn’t a perfect husband. He married his first wife Valerie Velardi in 1978, but that marriage came crashing down when she claimed that he had not only had affairs with multiple women – but also their nanny.
Valerie noted that Robin “loved women. Absolutely loved women. And I got it. And I understood and I wanted him to have that. But I also wanted him to come home.” But even at his home, he got a little too up close and personal with Marsha Garces, who had been hired to look after their children. Robin and Valerie eventually divorced, and Robin and Marsha tied the knot in 1989 before divorcing in 2010.

It’s no secret that the royal family has been plagued with rumors of infidelity.

Instead, Diana decided to go forth and have her own affair – with her riding instructor, no less.
It’s been alleged that Diana and James Hewitt were together for a few years without anyone knowing. He was hired to teach her how to ride horseback, but James’ mother noted that they would often use her home after their lessons to get up to mischief. Rumors began to swirl in the press that this was going on, but both parties vehemently denied all claims that they were being unfaithful. Of course, we now know that Charles and Diana didn’t last long, anyway.
Mel B Claims Stephen Belafonte Arranged a Marriage for Their Nanny So They Could Continue Their Affair

The couple married in 2007 and they welcomed a child together, but life came crashing down for them in 2016 when they separated and Mel filed for divorce, citing emotional and physical abuse. Alongside these claims, Mel also accused her ex of cheating on her with the nanny.
In their divorce papers, Mel reportedly noted that her ex-husband arranged a sham marriage for their German nanny Lorraine Gilles. This was in order to keep her in the US so that they could continue their affair behind the singer’s back. Not only that, but Mel also claimed that Stephen got their nanny pregnant! However, Stephen has denied all of this and called the accusations “outrageous and unfounded.”

Of course, she’s now happily married to Russell Wilson, but there was a time when Ciara and Future were engaged. And then they weren’t.
These two broke up when it was revealed that Future had been having an affair with Tyrina Lee, who he had hired to work as his stylist. To make matters worse, Ciara didn’t find out through the horse’s mouth. She heard rumors that devastated and “humiliated” her, and she ultimately decided to confront her fiance. Considering they broke up, we’re going to assume that he spilled the beans.

Although Britney never spoke out about this, Justin later enhanced the rumor by indirectly accusing her of cheating once again. He opted to hire an actress who looked just like the pop princess to appear in the video for his song “Cry Me A River.” He has since publicly apologized to Britney for how he treated her during this time, but we don’t think they’ll be getting back together anytime soon.

Yes, Peter cheated on his wife with his assistant Diana Bianchi.
