Summary: Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump had one of the most scandalous celebrity affairs in recent history. 

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, is currently under investigation with the FBI because of his 2016 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels. In January, the Wall Street Journal reported that someone in Trump’s camp had paid off Daniels so that she would stay mum about her alleged 2006 affair with Trump, and the payment which was supposed to stop a scandal has sparked a probe that could potentially take down Trump or at least his long-time ally.


But no matter what happens with the Cohen investigation, there is no doubt that the Trump and Daniels affair is one that will be forever remembered for its shock value and importance in history.

But what other celebrity affairs have made their marks? The following are ten of the most shocking.

10. Meg Ryan and Russell Crowe

In the 1990s, Meg Ryan was America’s sweetheart and married to wholesome actor Dennis Quaid. But her cutesy image was shattered when she hooked up with her “Proof of Life” co-star Russell Crowe. The affair arguably hurt her career but didn’t seem to affect Crowe’s, and Ryan also lost Quaid in the aftermath as well. Quaid later remarried and Ryan began a years-long relationship with John Mellencamp.

Hugh Grant’s 1995 mugshot.

9. Hugh Grant with Divine Brown 

Hugh Grant and his long-time girlfriend Elizabeth Hurley were one of the hottest celebrity couples in the 1990s, but their love hit a bump in the road in 1995 when Grant was arrested for lewd conduct after he was caught with a prostitute named Divine. Hurley amazingly forgave Grant’s lack of judgment, and so did the public. Although Hurley and Grant stayed together after the scandal, they eventually broke up but remained friends.

Eddie Fisher and Elizabeth Taylor.

8. Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher 

Elizabeth Taylor was known to be a vixen back in her youth, and in the 1950s, she famously had an affair with Eddie Fisher, who was married to Debbie Reynolds. Fisher left Reynolds for Taylor and Taylor left her then-husband; but alas, their love was not meant to be. Five years later, Taylor divorced Fisher and married her “Cleopatra” co-star Richard Burton.

Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders.

7. Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders

Kristen Stewart and her “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson were the most talked about couple of their generation almost ten years ago, but their relationship imploded in 2012 when Stewart was caught kissing her “Snow White and the Huntsmen” director Rupert Sanders, who was married and a father of two. The cheating scandal resulted in Stewart and Sanders both being dumped by their partners, and Stewart even got a mean shoutout from our now-president, Donald Trump. Years after this affair, Stewart has come out of the closet.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

6. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

On the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” co-stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt fell in love. The problem was–Pitt was married at the time to America’s sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston! The love triangular resulted in Pitt and Aniston’s divorce, and Jolie and Pitt eventually formed a large family together before recently calling it quits.

Soon-Yi and Woody Allen.

5. Soon-Yi Previn and Woody Allen 

Woody Allen has been married to his wife, Soon-Yi, for decades, but the way they got together has many feeling uncomfortable. Allen was dating Soon-Yi’s mother, Mia Farrow, when he met his future wife who is 35 years younger than him. Allen and Farrow broke up in 1992 when Farrow found nude photos of her daughter taken by Allen, and Allen and Soon-Yi married five years later. The way the couple met was icky enough, but their relationship gets more complicated because Soon-Yi’s brother, Ronan Farrow, alleges that Allen molested their sister, Dylan, when she was a child.

4. Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton 

In 1998, Monica Lewinsky became the most famous intern in the world when it was revealed she had an affair with President Bill Clinton from 1995 to 1997. The investigation into the sexual relationship between the then 49-year-old and the bright-eyed, blue dress-wearing 22-year-old eventually led to the impeachment of Clinton because he had lied during official statements. Clinton was subsequently acquitted, and decades later, Lewinsky has become a powerful voice in the anti-bullying movement.

Tiger Woods.

3. Tiger Woods and a slew of women…

In 2009, Tiger Woods’ then-wife Elin Nordegren allegedly attacked his car with a golf club after she had confronted him about his cheating. After that story broke, it was revealed that the golfing superstar had numerous girlfriends around the country, including escorts. In 2010, the pair divorced and Woods lost numerous endorsements.

Marilyn Monroe and John F. Kennedy.

2. Marilyn Monroe and John F. Kennedy 

When she was alive, Marilyn Monroe was arguably the sexiest woman in the world, and she was also known to have bedded a few married men along the way. One of them being President John F. Kennedy! While their affair was never confirmed, who could forget her sultry “Happy Birthday” rendition to JFK? It is rumored that Monroe had an affair with JFK and his brother Robert F. Kennedy, and the news of those relationships contributed to her suicide.

1. Stormy Daniels and Donald Trump 

Before becoming President of the United States, Donald Trump was known as a playboy, even when he was married. So when it came out that he had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels in 2006, it didn’t cause much of a stir… until people realized that his lawyer Michael Cohen may have violated campaign finance law when he paid Daniels $130,000 in 2016 to keep quiet about their affair. The payment has resulted in the FBI raiding Cohen’s home and office in New York, and an investigation into the matter is still pending.
