When they’re not making movies, you can always count on Hollywood A-listers to entertain us with their troubled love lives.
Who needs movies when you can read all the juicy details of the latest celebrity sex scandal? The same goes for music stars or, indeed, anyone rich enough to make the headlines.
How many were power couples torn apart by paparazzi catching some of the most famous people in the world enjoying a steamy night out with someone other than their legitimate partner? Let’s have a look at the biggest scandals in recent years.
10 Hugh Grant
Hollywood heartthrob Hugh Grant is no stranger to scandals, and you could write volumes about his love life. However, his relationship with Elizabeth Hurley seemed like the perfect match.
Yes, that was 25 years ago when millions of female fans worldwide secretly sighed over his pictures. In 1995, Hugh Grant was arrested in the company of a sex-worker in his car.
Hurley did not dump him straight away to her credit, but the public humiliation put a terrible strain on their relationship.
9 Jude Law
One of the sexiest actors of his generation, Jude Law, has led a complicated life. Between dating co-stars and supermodels, Jude Law found the time to engage in an oh-so-classical affair with his children’s nanny, Daisy Wright.
In 2004, Law was committed to Sienna Miller, and the nanny’s revelations came as a real shock. The actor issued a public apology to Miller, and the couple managed to put Law’s indiscretion behind. They never married, however, and eventually broke up in 2011.
8 Liam Hemsworth
It seemed like the golden match when Miley Cyrus married Liam Hemsworth in 2018; after all, they’d been an on-and-off item for the past six years.
Well, it only lasted nine months, and although when they separated, they cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ it was common knowledge that Hemsworth had been photographed getting rather intimate with actress Eliza Gonzales.
Not to mention the fact that he’d been sexting January Jones. On the other hand, you can’t blame him, given Miley’s raunchy public performances.
7 Jada Pinkett Smith
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett have been married for 23 years now, which is quite a record by Hollywood standards.
However, in July 2020, R&B singer August Alsina spoke in an interview about his affair with Jada. He claimed Will Smith knew about the matter and gave them his blessing, a fact he denied.
For herself, Jada Pinkett Smith did not go as far as to deny the story but called it an “entanglement,” whatever that’s supposed to mean.
