Six Celebrity Relationships that Started with a Scandal
Six celebrity couples who started their relationship with a scandal.

We can thank their six children for pressuring them to get engaged so they can finally tie the knot.

2. LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian: These two stars met on the set of Northern Lights, where their characters’ relationship spiraled into a real-world affair that ended both of their marriages. While LeAnn Rimes and her ex-husband Dean Sheremet claimed to go their separate ways with plans to remain loving friends, Eddie Cibrian's ex only had negative things to say about him. Rimes and Cibrian are now happily married.


3. Richie Sambora and Denise Richards: This was a scandalous love triangle that cost Denise Richards a friendship, but gained her a new man. Richie Sambora was married to Heather Locklear for 12 years before things started to get shaky between them. Richards encouraged her good friend Locklear to file for divorce, and despite girl code, Sambora and Richards were caught making out like teenagers a few weeks later. This seemingly-forbidden romance also required Sambora and Richards to deal with some pretty messy divorces of their own. It seems like the two deserved each other, but even their relationship recently ended.

4. Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott: Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott fell in love on the set of the Lifetime movie Mind Over Murder despite the fact that they were both married. The two quickly separated from their spouses. Before either one was legally divorced, they decided to announce their engagement. The two were married just a month after Spelling's divorce was finalized, and they have been married since 2006.
