The ultimate betrayal. Some celebrities have endured their fair share of heartbreak over the years — including highly publicized cheating scandals.
Tristan Thompson made headlines twice for cheating on Khloé Kardashian — whom he began dating in 2016 — over the course of their relationship. The Cleveland Cavaliers player was spotted cozying up to two women in April 2018 while Kardashian was pregnant with their daughter, True. Later that month, Us Weekly confirmed that Thompson had been unfaithful to the reality star since November 2017 with at least five different women.
However, Thompson was present for their daughter’s birth, which was documented on season 15 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“His mistake was obviously humiliating and heartbreaking but I do believe that I am strong enough to endure anything,” she tweeted at the time. “I choose to find a life lesson in every situation, even the nasty ones. Tristan has grown from this but most importantly he is a beautiful father to our sweet baby True.”
Another cheating scandal that made waves involved Kristen Stewart, whose romance with Robert Pattinson‘s romance hit a roadblock when photos surfaced in July 2012 of the actress and director Rupert Sanders packing on the PDA. The Seberg star issued a public apology to Pattinson, whom she began dating in 2009.
“I’m deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I’ve caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected,” she said at the time. “This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I’m so sorry.”
Sanders, for his part, publicly apologized to his then-wife, Liberty Ross, and their two children, Skyla and Tennyson.
“I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,” the English director said in a statement to Us. “My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”
Ross filed for divorce from Sanders in January 2013. Stewart and Pattinson reconciled but the Twilight costars ultimately called it quits for good the same month.
