For nine seasons, The Office delivered comic stories about life at a failing paper company. There were pranks, Dundies, and arguably above all else, the fairy-tale romance of prank-happy salesman Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) and sweet receptionist-turned-office administrator Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer). But what if it was all a lie? Many people who buy into The Office fan theories are pretty sure Jim stepped out on Pam, all while he looked like America’s sweetheart.
Cheating sitcom couples aren’t anything new, but for some ardent viewers of The Office, it’s hard to swallow the idea that Jim cheated on his super-crush after finally getting to be with her. Maybe after all those years of pining for Pam and a brief dalliance with Karen Filippelli (Rashida Jones), Jim grew bored and began having affairs. If hearing that Jim could've cheated on Pam is like getting an arrow through your heart, you may want to take a moment and sing some acapella to cheer yourself up between each of these depressing Jim and Pam fan theories.
