Their marriages looked like they would last forever, just like in fairytales. But then, “the other woman” appeared and these celebs went head over heels and left their wives only to marry their mistresses. Sometimes, boy meets girl and marries her doesn’t end there, but rather goes in circles with more than one girl – and these are the stories of 5 cheating stars and their partners in crime that went from mistress to Mrs.
1. Bruce Springsteen
This all-American superstar fulfilled every man’s dream by marrying model Julianne Phillips in 1985. However, family bliss didn’t last long and Bruce was bored shortly after so he was open to extramarital love – he fell in love with band colleague Patti Scialfa. The two of them jumped into a relationship during one tour in the late 1980s and this was the final nail in the coffin of Bruce and Julianne’s marriage. They divorced, and Patti and Bruce’s love flourished. Even though they were constantly under the eye of the public, the celebrity couple made it work and married in 1991, two years after Bruce finalized the divorce papers.
2. Randy Travis
Singer-songwriter Randy Travis married his manager Lib Hatcher in 1991 and for a long time it seemed like they were a match made in heaven – 19 years to be more specific. However, dear old Randy was often seen with his dentist’s wife, Mary Davis. It turned out they were sleeping together years before their romance was discovered in 2010. Travis and Lib divorced that same year, while March this year he married Mary Davis.
3. Brad Pitt
This list wouldn’t be complete without the love triangle of Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie. It has it all, two beautiful celebs in a marriage we were all rooting for, a gorgeous other woman and a nasty scandal.
Even though it seemed like Brad and Jennifer were in a loving marriage, things changed after the filming of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. We know that they are great actors, but it seems they took their roles too seriously that time and just continued acting like a married couple. All joking aside, the on-set chemistry was obvious and Brad fell for Angelina, so he ended his 5-year long marriage with Jennifer Aniston.
Even though Angelina says nothing happened before the divorce, you have to admit it’s a bit weird for a guy to leave his wife for nothing. And even Brad and Angelina later confessed they fell in love during filming. So just imagine it – they were spending weeks together, all alone, had every night off, and above all they fell in love… Something happened for sure, nobody has that level of self-control.
4. Marc Anthony
When you have a shoot with Jennifer Lopez, you take it. That’s what must have gone through Marc Anthony’s mind when he started his relationship with J. Lo while he was still married to former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres. And even Jennifer was in an awkward time in her life, as she plunged into the relationship just 3 weeks after divorcing Ben Affleck. And here’s the worst part of the story – Marc and J. Lo were married just four days after he signed his divorce papers. Just think about how awful Dayanara Torres must have felt!
5. Eddie Cibrian
In 2001 Eddie married Brandi Glanville, a former model and a truly stunning woman. But when the actor met songstress LeAnn Rimes on set of Northern Lights everything changed. Now, we are not questioning LeAnn’s beauty, but when you have such a beautiful woman at home, why would you go searching for something else Eddie? I guess we’ll never know the answer, but the two of them started an affair which went public in 2009, after which Eddie filed for divorce and soon LeAnn did the same as she was also married at the time. They divorced their spouses and married each other in 2011.
