Photo were even posted in support of the claims, with reports that he moved her into a house down the street from his home with Williams. The talk show maven took to her talk show, however, to dispel the rumors, flashing her ring to the camera before adding that, "everything is fine in the Hunter household." In the past, however, the host admitted that her husband did step out on their marriage, but she decided to stay.

Beyoncé is arguably considered one of the most powerful women in the entertainment industry and is known for putting her feminist stamp on everything she touches. Folks were shocked to learn that her longtime partner, husband Jay-Z, was unfaithful to her for years, as she explained in her 2016 visual album, Lemonade. Jigga even admitted to his wrongs on his 2017 offering, 4:44. Just this week, when discussing psychotherapy, Jay told the New York Times, “You have to survive. So you go into survival mode, and when you go into survival mode, what happens? You shut down all emotions. So even with women, you gonna shut down emotionally, so you can’t connect. In my case, like it’s, it’s deep. And then all the things happen from there: infidelity.”
Bey ultimately worked things through with her rapper hubby.
President Bill Clinton undoubtedly stands as one of the poster children for political sex scandals with his highly publicized affair with then 22-year-old White House intern, Monica Lewinsy. The news of the affair eventually led to his impeachment in 1998, with his wife Hillary being criticized for standing by him throughout the humiliating incident. The couple has since gotten over the hump and has been married for more than 40 years now.
A young Vanessa and Kobe Bryant tied the knot at the tender ages of 19 and 22, respectively, in 2001 and just two years after their nuptials, the baller was accused of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old hotel employee in Colorado. He eventually admitted to having sex with the teenager, but denied the sexual assault charges, completely. While the case was settled outside of court, Vanessa was still hurt by the events and filed for divorce. She eventually had a change of heart and the two are still going strong.
Despite her husband being the subject of arguably the largest sexual assault scandal of the century, Camille Cosby did not hesitate when sticking up for her man of 51 years. While he even admitted in a previous court deposition in 2016 to planning to give quaaludes to women he hoped to sleep with, Camille still stuck by him, refusing to speak ill aginst him throughout the process. After her husband was found guilty, she even wrote a three-page statement, comparing the treatment of him to a lynching.
Gospel singer Tina Campbell's dysfunctional marriage with her husband Teddy was chronicled on their reality show and the couple even appeared on the Steve Harvey Show in 2015 to be a part of a segment called "Life After Infidelity" where she opened up about how she found out he was being unfaithful. She explained that while she confronted her husband about the information she had learned, he did not budge, but eventually asked him to call the woman whom he had the affair with. She claims the woman in question was like a "godmother" to her children and the news broke her heart. Despite the hurtful news, she decided to move forward with her marriage as the two continue to work through their issues.
