Yes, they are always on the road, and life on the road can be difficult. Yes, they do face constant temptation, and when temptation is paired with loneliness a whole different trouble starts brewing. There have been tons of public breakups involving both celebrities and athletes. From some of the biggest names all the way down to the newcomers, no one seems safe from the world of infidelity. Taking on commitment is a big step, but committing to a famous athlete is a huge undertaking.
Granted, there are quite a few really good faithful men in the sports industry, they are often out shined in the tabloids by the scandalous ones.
These 15 unfaithful athletes were caught red-handed cheating on their partners in the dumbest and most embarrassing ways. It was rumored Wade cheated on his then-wife with Union. Wade claims his baby with Basketball Wives star, Aja Metoyer was conceived while he and Union were on a break. The Jamaican athlete just had some major gold medal victories at the Rio Olympics in , and like any typical human, he wanted to celebrate big.
She described the events following her meeting Bolt in a club in very extensive detail. The pair did stay together, but old habits die hard. Well, San Antonio Spurs baller Tony Parker apparently did not have that knowledge when he got caught red-handed cheating on his then-wife and actress Eva Longoria.
While both Barry and Parker continuously denied any real physical contact, the hundreds of dirty text messages were enough to send Longoria into filing for a divorce.
The former Laker legend denied the sexual assault, but he did admit to an adulteress sexual encounter with her that was consensual. The case was dropped after the accuser refused to testify, but a separate civil suit was filed and was settled outside of court. Years later, tons of other Bryant mistresses started appearing. Bryant bragged to other basketball players about his cheating and they told their wives. The wives then told Vanessa. This must have been the last straw for Vanessa, because she filed for divorce shortly after learning of his habits over the years.
He is also one of the most notorious serial cheaters in sports. Tiger Woods was married to the beautiful Swedish model, Elin Nordegren at the time his life took a turn for the worst. Nordegren lost it and attacked Woods with a golf club.
Following the break of this affair, loads of porn stars, strippers, escorts and party girls came forward claiming they, too, had sexual affairs with Woods. Lozada was not messing around; she insisted on a divorce that evening, leading Johnson to rage in abuse on Lozada.
Model and stripper, Amber Priddy also came forward announcing her affair with Johnson claiming he even paid for her apartment. Johnson kept a string of women in different cities in hopes of never getting caught.
