It's a tale as old as time; no, not of the Disney variety. Cheating scandals are like the bread and butter of the celebrity gossip world, with rumors and speculation about various power couples popping up every day.

While most of the rumors will never be confirmed, or a few grainy photos in a club or on a balcony are all we'll ever get, there are some cheating scandals that will go down as uber-scandalous. As is the custom with famous and wealthy people, it usually involves a co-star or the nanny. Buckle your seat belts, there's some turbulence ahead!

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston +Angelina Jolie


This was one of the biggest cheating scandals we've seen in recent times. It was so infamous that "Team Jen" and "Team Angelina" t-shirts were created (was anyone actually "Team Angelina?")

Angelina will forever go down as the woman who broke up our favorite couple of the '90s and made us turn our backs on love.

Brad and Angelina met in 2004 on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and there was no denying their chemistry. Angelina later told Vogue, "Because of the film we ended up being brought together to do all these crazy things, and I think we found this strange friendship and partnership that kind of just suddenly happened. I think a few months in I realized, 'God, I can’t wait to get to work.'

She continued, "Whether it was shooting a scene or arguing about a scene or gun practice or dance class or doing stunts—anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. We just became kind of a pair. And it took until, really, the end of the shoot for us, I think, to realize that it might mean something more than we’d earlier allowed ourselves to believe. And both knowing that the reality of that was a big thing, something that was going to take a lot of serious consideration."

Ouch! Way to throw it in Jen's face, Angelina! This is why I'll always save my "Team Jen" t-shirt.

Brad and Jen confirmed they were splitting by 2005.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner + Christine Ouzounian

Could Ben Affleck be any more cliche? Cheating with the nanny? Really?

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner confirmed their split in 2015 amid speculation that he had cheated on her with their nanny, Christine Ouzounian.

While speculation will never go away that Ben stepped out on Jen while they were still together, she did bring up the rumors during an interview with Vanity Fair in 2016. She said, "Let me just tell you something. We had been separated for months before I ever heard about the nanny. She had nothing to with our decision to divorce. She was not a part of the equation."

She continued, "Bad judgment? Yes. It's not great for your kids for (a nanny) to disappear from their lives. I have had to have conversations (with my children) about the meaning of scandal."

Well then, that's that!

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson + Rupert Sanders

They became our favorite vampires after meeting on the set of Twilight and falling in love.

However, in 2012, photos surfaced of Kristen making out with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders. While Kristen may have just been in a long-term relationship with Robert Pattinson, Rupert was married to Liberty Ross at the time, and they had two kids together. They later filed for divorce in 2014, while K-Stew and Rob broke up not long after the photos came to light.

Kristen later spoke of the scandal to Howard Stern, saying, "I did not f**k him." She also added that she understands that when "you make out with a dude in public, it definitely looks like you did [have sex]."

Well, thanks to Kristen, mystery solved.

Jude Law and Sienna Miller + Daisy Wright

Another cheating scandal involving the nanny. Celebrities should be a cautionary tale to all women considering hiring an attractive nanny, you've been warned!

Way back in 2005, Jude Law was forced to make a public statement, apologizing to Sienna Miller when it came out that he had cheated on her with their nanny.

His statement said, "I just want to say I am deeply ashamed and upset that I’ve hurt Sienna and the people most close to us. I want to publicly apologize to Sienna and our respective families for the pain that I have caused. There is no defense for my actions which I sincerely regret and I ask that you respect our privacy at this very difficult time."

Jude and Sienna split up a year later.

Will the current Justin Timberlake and Alisha Wainwright rumors be on our list next year? Guess we'll have to wait and see!
