First comes love, then comes marriage, and unfortunately, sometimes then comes cheating — even for Hollywood’s hottest couples!
It’s sad but true that alleged cheating scandals have torn apart some of the longest-running marriages in Hollywood. Some stars moved on from their tragic divorces years ago — like Reese Witherspoon, who’s engaged AND expecting a baby with new man Jim Toth — while others, like Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, are still dealing with the aftermath of their breakups. We’re still trying to get used to the fact that some of these power couples are no longer together!
