The Patriots' franchise savior was in a relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan for two years when in 2006 it was reported that they has separated their ways. Initially rumored the cause of their break up was the alleged affair going between Brady and Gisele Bundchen, a Brazilian model and actress. Meanwhile during their split, news it was also acknowledged that Bridget is expecting her first child with Brady. Their relationship continued for a short time with certain differences until Bridget delivered a baby boy. Then the rumors turned out to be true as Tom married with Gisele in 2009 and now they have two children.

Gisele revealed last year in an interview with CBS that she considered leaving Brady when she found out Moynahan was pregnant. "It was a challenging thing because here I am, you know, thinking, I'm dating this guy, we met, and we started dating and everything is great and then this happens," Bündchen revealed. "So, then I felt like I didn't know what to do. It was kind of one of those moments of like, 'Do I just run away?' "

Tabloids first presented a story of tony and his alleged affair with a model Alexandra Paressant which was condemned by both Eva and Tony. He also filed a suit against a website who launched this story, but later on after three years, Eva filed a divorce against Tony suspecting his affair with another woman named as Erin Barry who reportedly was a wife of tony’s teammate.

Tony Parker confirmed the news of their divorce in 2011. He has since said he regrets what he did, especially due to the media frenzy it created. "The exposure, I could not control. This is the world we live in today; everything is on the Internet and on social network sites. I never paid attention to what people said. Hollywood is another world, on another level."

"We are obviously not talking a Tiger Woods here, but I was unfaithful," he said back in 2011.

The couple stayed apart from each other for a long time before  they reconciled. They remain married to this day. In any event, this was quite an embarrassing situation for the couple.

Ashley Cole was claimed to have an affair with two women; one was a hair dresser, and the other was a model Brooke Haley, who fed allegations against Cole for being in illegitimate relationship with her. Ashley Cole was married to a singer Cheryl Tweedy who filed for a divorce. Cheryl tweeted after the divorce was finalized, announcing the marriage was officially over. To her credit, she let the story go away quietly, saying she wanted a 'divorce with dignity'. No dirty laundry was spewed by Tweedy, as she showed a lot of class, despite being wronged by her husband.

Last year, she reflected on the divorce and said that while she put on a brave face following the affair, she was suffering. "To be honest, I coped in public and crumbled in private," she said. "It’s funny - those who didn't understand my actions at the time have now had that happen to them and they get it."

The famous Welsh footballer was found to have had an affair with the model Imogan in 2011. A year later the shocking news came out when tabloid reported that Giggs was involved in the secret affair with his sister in law Natasha. But Stacey Cooke, Giggs' wife at the time, seemed to be committed and forgave him. She did not leave her husband at the time though Natasha and Rhodri, Giggs brother, could not prolong their relationship and they ended it up getting a divorce.

Since then, Giggs and Cooke have in fact filed for divorce. Of all things, Cooke claims she saw Giggs flirting with waitresses at the restaurants he owned. Giggs stands to lose much of his fortune, as Cooke seems to want to take everything she could get from Giggs. You can't blame her, after all, she did put up with quite a bit of nonsense.

9 Paul Lo Duca

The baseball catcher was discovered to have had an affair when a 19-year-old claimed that she had an affair with Lo Duca. She wasn't shy in spewing harsh words to him, as she was very upset after discovering he was married.

“I didn’t know he was married. If I knew he was married, I wouldn’t have dated him,” she insisted. “He’s a scumbag for lying to me.”

She said the relationship was nothing more than a fling and she never saw Lo Duca as her boyfriend.

This wasn't the end of the embarrassment for the Mets catcher though. Lo Duca was also investigated by Mets for his frequent gambling practice which was denied by Lo Duca. Nevertheless, the affair caused his wife Sonia to leave him. Paul Lo Duca still maintains a good relationship with his ex-wife for the sake of their daughter.

8 Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant has been accused for the extra marital relationship several times. He was charged for the sexual assault of a hotel employee back in 2003. He later admitted that he was involved with the employee and was unfaithful to his wife, but did not commit any crime and denied all the allegations. Throughout his career, he has constantly been accused of many scandals, including his alleged affair with a woman name Jessica. This was denied by her, but due to Bryant's scandalous behavior his wife Vanessa filed a divorce against him in 2011. The couple eventually called off the divorce in 2013 after nearly two years of separation.

With all the unfaithful behavior Kobe has shown in marriage, it's quite surprising to see that the couple is still together. Hopefully Bryant is more faithful now that he's retired from basketball.

7 John Terry

The former captain of Chelsea, John Terry also lies in the list of deceivers but he is lucky enough as his wife did not leave him, and continues to live a happy life with him. Terry's hidden affair with his one of the teammate's girlfriends, Vanessa Perroncel, got a lot of public attention in 2010, when the media suspected their illicit meetings and relationship.

Another shocking revelation of the truth came across to the media when it was reported that Terry’s wife and Vanessa were very good friends.

This was surely a tough situation for Terry's wife but she decided to give her marriage another. Vanessa Perroncel and Wayne Bridge, Terry’s teammate, eventually broke up. Needless to say, their friendship was ruined by this affair. When playing for opposing teams the following season, Bridge deliberately skipped Terry in a handshake line.

6 LeBron James

Since LeBron has started his professional basketball career his rumors with other women are always a highlight of the tabloids. In 2013, soon after he married his high school sweetheart Savannah, LeBron he was rumored for being in extramarital relationship with a swimsuit model Nina. The news spread out when both of them were photographed in a lover birds pose looking at each other passionately. This is not the only time LeBron was rumored to have had an affair. The rumors between him and Rihanna also grabbed the media's attention. It's never been confirmed if all these rumors were true or not. All that we know is LeBron and Savannah are still married with three children together.

LeBron's coming off an amazing season where he led the Cavaliers to their first championship, so this story has swept away within the past year. We'll see if stories continue to emerge regarding LeBron's fidelity.

5 Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett is also an NBA star who cheated his wife but was lucky enough to save his marriage. He has been married to Brandi Padilla since 2004 but KG's transgressions have always seemed to emerge in news stories. His unfaithfulness came out when a picture surfaced of him hugging and kissing another woman. Garnett was also caught secretly dating with model Annie Silvestri, who reported to be his mistress.

Back in 2008, rumors began to surface that Garnett had been seeing a woman for four years. That woman was alleged to be a Minnesota Timberwolves dancer named Krissy. Not only were there rumors of an affair, but it's also alleged that Krissy moved to Boston following Garnett's trade to the Celtics, since the two were so close. That's not exactly the best way to hide an affair.

4 Olivier Giroud

The French footballer, who is not only popular for his soccer skills, but also with his hunky looks and could easily get girls to hover around him. And yes like the other athletes the temptations for Giroud got the better of him, and he had an affair with a model Celia Kay, who also shared their intimate moments with photos of them in the Four Seasons hotel just before a game against Crystal Palace. A picture of Giroud in his underwear surfaced.

His affair was no longer a hidden betrayal to his wife. The news somehow reached her when a media published Giroud’s picture in the hotel.

Giroud, needless to say, was embarrassed by the situation.

"I apologize to my wife, family and friends and my manager, team-mates and Arsenal fans," he said. "I now have to fight for my family and for my club and obtain their forgiveness. Nothing else matters at the moment."

3 Franck Ribery

Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

Another French player who plays for the German club Bayern Munich, Ribery has always been seen as a loyal and generous husband to his wife Wahiba, as he also converted his religion to Islam before marrying her. But the player was also accused for succumbing to his lust for another woman in 2010. He, along with his two teammates were found having sex with a prostitute Zahia Dehar. The news got worse when she was alleged to under-aged the time they had sex with her. The player has denied all the news as a rumor but the news has somewhat effected the bond of Ribery and Wahiba.

Eventually the charges were dropped against Ribery. It was a scary time, as he and teammates Karim Benzema and Sidney Gouvou were facing three years of jail time. Prostitution is legal in France, but all parties in the act must be over 18. Whether he went to prison or not, the whole ordeal was extremely embarrassing.

2 Royston Drenthe

Royston Drenthe is a Dutch professional footballer who plays as a left winger. News surfaced of Drenthe having an extramarital affair with model Malena Gracia. Both were found getting intimate with each other many times and his playboy lifestyle came out more prominently when his wife was expecting their child. When he was asked by one of the interviewer 'how often do you have sex?'. That may be an odd question to ask, but an odder thing was Drenthe's response. He shamelessly replied :”you mean with my wife”?.

It's sad that Drenthe has become known more for his unfaithful ways than his soccer career. He was once hyped up to be the world's next big star, but following an embarrassing tenure at Real Madrid, his career fizzled out.

1 Martina Hingis

The list of athletes cheating on their spouses or significant others doesn't only include male athletes. We now have a female athlete on this list, as Martina Hingis' marriage with Thaibault Hutin ended due to her unfaithful ways.

Hutin shared the story of how he discovered Hingis was cheating on him.

"We were supposed to meet in New York and I wanted to give her a surprise,' he told the German-language magazine SonntagsBlick.

"Upon arriving at the hotel room it was me that was surprised, because Martina was not alone." Hutin said.

Hutin went on to say that he tried to save their marriage following the discovery, but a year later, he again found out his wife had been unfaithful. Hingis didn't comment on her husband's claims and it could be due to embarrassment over the incidents.
