When celebrities cheat on each other, the world knows. As a drama-loving society, we've followed the stories of celebrity cheaters and celebrities who were cheated on, so it only felt natural to compile a list of celebrities who fall into both categories.

All of the stories on this list involve some sort of karmic retribution in the form of a sexual indiscretion.
