Celebrities who stayed with cheating spouses or partners are more common than you might think. No one is ever thrilled to find out their partner was caught cheating, but sometimes it's more appealing to work things out with an unfaithful significant other than to end a once-beautiful relationship. Plenty of famous people who stayed together after an affair seemed to regain trust and intimacy.

Celebrity cheating doesn't always end in divorce or a messy split. Stars who were cheated on but stayed range from internationally-renowned singers to major movie stars to career politicians. Some of these celebrities who stayed after affairs later broke up with their partners, while others are seemingly still going strong.

These notable couples didn't let infidelity break them up. Whether the cheaters in question reformed, however, is anyone's guess.

When footage leaked in 2014 of Beyoncé's sister Solange fighting with Jay-Z in an elevator, fans around the world speculated that the fight was over Jay-Z's relationship with designer Rachel Roy. Bey-Z even released a rare public statement at the time:

"Families have problems and we're no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We've put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same."

When Beyoncé's album Lemonade arrived in 2016 with the infamous lyric "Becky with the good hair," many listeners took it as a sign that those cheating rumors were true. However, the couple remains married.
