Well, no one saw Shakira and Gerard Pique breaking up after a whole decade and two children together. The two put out a joint statement today, June 4th, asking for privacy during their separation time. The news brought about a heap of memories of other mega-stars who got heartbroken in the most unexpected moment. To narrow it down, we’ve compiled a list of 10 women in the music industry who very unfortunately got very famously, sometimes allegedly, cheated on.
10. Iggy Azalea
Iggy was ENGAGED to Nick Young when she double-checked the security cameras of their house and, lo and behold, saw another woman with her future husband. The scandal really got out of hand in 2016 when it was discovered that the woman was left pregnant by Nick Young. A series of shocking tweets from Iggy followed the breakup and the rapper pretty much single-handedly clarified everything in the court of public opinion.
9. Jennifer Lopez
Ain’t it funny that Jennifer TOO was engaged to Rodriguez when he allegedly cheated on her via some virtual method? The other woman is supposedly Madison Lecroy (who is she?), and the lady did not necessarily try to make things better for Alex with some weird claims and bogus defense. What we should be grateful for, is that thanks to his BS behavior, Jennifer Lopez rekindled her romance with Ben Affleck and they’re A LOT cuter together.
8. Shania Twain
This one is WILD. So here it goes: Shania Twain’s former husband, Robert John Lange, cheated on the singer with her best friend who was married to another man, Frédéric Thiébaud. Both marriages ended in divorce but… MAJOR PLOT TWIST! Shania Twain ended up marrying Frédéric Thiébaud. Yes, the husband of the other woman. Amazing!
7. Christina Milian
The American-Cuban actress, singer, and songwriter got very candid on a few occasions about how back in the early 2000s she randomly guessed her then boyfriend’s phone password. The man was none other than Nick Cannon, possibly the guy with the most kids in the entertainment industry. The singer detailed how she first read for an entire month the text messages on her ex’s phone before confronting him about it. The patience!
6. Katy Perry
Katy Perry and John Mayer had a rather toxic attachment, a push-and-pull dynamic, and an on-and-off relationship. The rumors back in 2014 were EVERYWHERE about John Mayer’s player ways. After the relationship ended, the singer went on to write multiple songs about Katy Perry implying he’s deeply regretted the split and the way things happened.
5. Miranda Lambert
Blake Shelton was the one who filed for divorce from Miranda Lambert in 2015. This case in particular is different than the others in that both spouses accused each other of cheating on the other, and it got so bad that the supposed lovers, Chris Young and Cady Groves, got caught in the middle and their careers took hit after hit because of the dispute.
4. Jessica Simpson
While admitting in her memoir to having had an emotional affair herself during her marriage to Nick Lachey, Jessica Simpson also hints at Nick having cheated on her. Then there’s this very detailed article giving out names, places, and hours in a UK tabloid that would seem to be the fire behind the smoke. For some reason, the singer always found herself in the middle of cheating rumors.
3. Britney Spears
According to Billboard, at a show in 2014, Britney had an exhilarating moment in front of her audience when she stopped and said “Well, by now everyone knows my boyfriend cheated on me. But the best part of breaking up is going on first dates. OMG, I need a hot guy. Where are the hot guys here tonight?” The ex-boyfriend in question was David Lucado.
In true Madonna style, Madonna made it very known during a concert in 2016 how one of her past boyfriends cheated on her with her trainer so she fired her. The ex-boyfriend is rumored to be Brahim Zaibat and the Filipino trainer, Nicole Winhoffer.
Dear Lord, THE guy who had the balls to write in his song 4:44 that he had a whole threesome behind Beyoncé’s back and supposedly after they already had their daughter Blue Ivy. For some reason, the world saw him as a hero when he came forward about his cheating ways but we see him as weak and fairly stupid for embarrassing Beyoncé damn Knowles the way he did.
