By Jennifer Harrington and Laura Seaman

For those who follow celebrity news, cheating in Hollywood is hardly a surprise. What is often more interesting are the couples that, despite the spotlight and scrutiny, manage to stick together through a cheating scandal. So Cupid took a look at a few high-profile lovebirds who have weathered the storm of infidelity to see what lessons about moving on can be learned from the A-listers.

1. Josh Duhamel and Fergie: This couple met back in 2004, became engaged in 2007, and were married in 2009. Soon after they became man and wife, though, a stripper accused the actor of cheating. This didn’t seem to upset the Black Eyed Peas singer, as she stayed with him through it all. In 2012, Duhamel addressed the rumors and said, “When you go through difficult times, it really makes you stronger as a unit, as a partnership. It does for us, anyways. Our love today is a deeper love, definitely.” In 2013, they welcomed their baby boy Axl Jack Duhamel. What didn’t kill this relationship made it stronger, and these two are as happy as ever.

2. Kobe and Vanessa Bryant: Hotel worker Katelyn Faber accused the basketball star of sexual assault back in 2003. While Bryant did admit that he slept with the Faber and cheated on his wife, he denied that it was assault. Through the trial and all of the press, Bryant’s wife stayed by his side. The two are still together and are now raising their two daughters, Natalia and Gianna. In fact, they were recently spotted on a family vacation in Greece.

3. David Borneaz and Jaime Bergman: The Bones actor and his former Playboy Playmate wife have been married since 2001, but in 2010, he admitted to the public that he cheated on a then-pregnant Bergman. The other woman in the picture is no stranger to scandal: Rachel Uchitel was also a mistress of Tiger Woods. Later, to make matters worse, explicit texts between the two were leaked to the media. Soon after, the actor commented, saying of him and his wife: “We’re working on repairing what has been damaged so badly.” He now says that the entire affair was a type of bonding experience for the couple and that they are closer because of it.

4. David and Victoria Beckham: The soccer starwas hit with a cheating accusation back in 2010 by In Touch Weekly, who published a piece stating that he had cheated on his wife with a call girl named Irma Nici. Beckham sued the magazine, and the suit was dropped. Beckham’s rep released a statement saying the allegations were “completely untrue and totally ridiculous, as the magazine was told before publication.” This past July, the couple, who has four children, celebrated 15 years of marriage.

5. Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian: This reality couple has faced allegations of unfaithfulness throughout the course of their seven-year relationship. In 2011, rumors swirled that Disick and fellow reality star Kristin Cavallari were having an affair. Cavallari denied the rumors and speculated that they were initiated to spark interest before the premiere of a new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. With Kardashian pregnant with their third child, it sounds like all has been forgiven!

Ultimately, cheating should be avoided, and it’s never a desired ingredient in any romance. But, unfortunately, it does happen. The examples from these high-profile couples proved that with time, forgiveness, and family support, it’s sometimes possible to mend a relationship broken by unfaithfulness.
