In fact, some relationships actually begin with an affair. And, surprisingly, there’s a few celebrity couples who have admitted that they ended up together because of cheating. While it’s not the most moral way to kick off a relationship, for some stars, it’s actually worked out.

10 Famous Couples Who Tried To Make It Work More Than Once
1. LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian
Both LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian were married — to Dean Sheremet and Brandi Glanville, respectively — when they were captured on a security camera holding hands and kissing on a romantic dinner date. Shortly after their affair made headlines, they split from their partners and began to pursue a relationship with one another. The couple eventually tied the knot and, looking back, LeAnn says she regrets the way she chose to leave her first marriage.
“My relationship with Dean was great, but ultimately it wasn’t a fulfilling marriage for either of us. We got married so young: I was 19 and he was 21, so as we got older, we grew apart. I understand why people are disappointed in me, especially since I grew up as America’s sweetheart…I think any relationship is hard to get out of, and I don’t think the way I did it was right,” LeAnn said.
2. Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott
When Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott met for the first time on the set of “Mind Over Murder,” they fell head over heels for each other. Unfortunately, they were both married to other people. At the time, Dean was married to his first wife, Mary Jane Eustace, while Tori was married to her first husband, Charlie Shanian. That didn’t stop Tori and Dean from getting together though and they ended up having sex on the first night they met.
“He was married…We had sex the first night we met. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, just get your rocks off, have sex with someone just to have sex,’ you know? It was a conscious decision, like, fell head over heels for you,” Tori revealed on “True Tori.”
The couple went on to divorce their first spouses and marry one another in 2006. They’re still together.

“I had too much to drink, let the party get out of hand and acted inappropriately at a bar. I left alone, caught the bus to our next show and that’s the end of the story. I ultimately ended up embarrassing my family and myself. I’m not perfect, and I’m sorry for disappointing you guys. I really appreciate being able to work through this privately with my family and for all your continued support,” Jason wrote on his Facebook.
Jason and Jessica ended up calling it quits the following year and in 2014, Jason began dating Brittany. The couple tied the knot in 2015 and are still together.
