The most scandalous celebrity affairs of all time

Because we know you can't resist

By Alex Warner  May 3rd, 2018

If we’ve learned anything from Hollywood and Bollywood, it’s that those fairytale weddings don’t always have happily-ever-after endings. Being kept apart by extreme work conditions, like being stuck on separate sets halfway around the world from each other with irresistibly attractive co-stars, is a recipe for disaster, as you’ll see from these scandalous celebrity affairs that afflicted even the most loved-up star marriages. Like Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, whose status as poster couple for America was destroyed after it was revealed that the actor had fallen for his Mr & Mrs Smith co-star, Angelina Jolie.

6 most scandalous celebrity affairs of all time  

Brad Pitt with Angelina Jolie

One of Hollywood's most earth-shattering affairs. Ange fell hard for Brad while they were working on the set of Mr. And Mrs. Smith—though she claimed nothing happened before Brad's separation from Jennifer Aniston.

Princess Diana with James Gilbey

In 1992, The Sun released a transcript of a recorded conversation the princess had with her alleged lover, James Gilbey, in which he called her 'Squidgy.' At the time, she was still married to Prince Charles, who was having an affair of his own with future second wife Camilla Parker Bowles.

Soon after Princess Diana's affair was made public, so was Prince Charles' own dalliance with his lifelong friend Camilla Parker Bowles. An Australian magazine released a transcript of their sexy bedtime phone calls, which memorably featured the two discussing what it would be like if Charles were to be Camilla's tampon(really). The scandal contributed to Diana and the Prince of Wales finally getting divorced. He married Camilla in 2005.

Kristen Stewart with Rupert Sanders

Fans were very disappointed when photos surfaced of Kristen and Rupert getting a little too close. She was very famously dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, and they ended their relationship over the affair.

'I lit my universe on fire and I watched it burn,' she said in an interview. 'Speaking very candidly, it was a really traumatic period in my early 20s that kick-started something in me that was a bit more feral.'

Sushant Singh Rajput with Kiriti Sanon

Sushant Singh Rajput was all set to marry his Pavitra Rishta co-star Ankita Lokhande. That is, until he moved out of their shared apartment and announced that the two had split, calling off their engagement. Sushant went on record to say that it was his busy work schedule to blame; at the time, he had begun shooting for Raabta with Kriti Sanon. It didn't take long for the rumours to start after that. But it wasn't just the off-screen chemistry, Sanon and Rajput were seen taking drives together, going for meals and getting unusually comfortable on Instagram. It didn't take the media long to check the timelines to find out that Sushant's rumoured relationship started long before his engagement ended. 

Hrithik Roshan with Barbara Mori

While Hrithik and Sussanne's decades-long relationship seemed rock solid, nothing set the gossip columns ablaze like the arrival of a certain Barbara Mori. Co-starring in the 2010 flick, Kites, the chemistry between the two lead actors was undeniable. News broke that Sussanne had moved out of the family home, taking the kids with her, a development the family insisted was due to interior renovations. The Roshans eventually separated after being together for 17 years, but share happy joint custody of their kids.
