It doesn't matter who someone is or the status he or she might hold. Cheating sucks, and breakups are hard -- even for the rich and famous. Sometimes, it may even feel worse because of tabloids and the media's ability to expose a celebrity's infidelity before that person's partner even knows about it. Just look at Meghan King Edmonds finding out about her husband being unfaithful while she was pregnant. She reportedly had no clue and found out when we did.

Yikes!

But some famous couples choose to work through the cheating scandals ... or deny them altogether.

Not everyone who cheats splits up or gets a divorce. Some people can endure these trying times, work behind the scenes to repair their marriage, and come through it on the other side. It has got to be tough as not everyone is able to do it, which is why we can't help but applaud those who try.

(Unless said lover or spouse is a serial cheater, of course.)

Here's a look at some celebrity couples who've remained together despite reports of unfaithfulness.

  • Kate Middleton & Prince William

    In spring 2019, there were a lot of rumors that William had been cheating with Kate's close friend, Rose Hanbury. But the rumors have never been confirmed, and as far as public appearances go, it seems Will and Kate haven't let it faze them. Recently, a source close to the royals told Us Weekly that they've reevaluated their marriage because of the rumors, and they're working on becoming stronger than ever.

  • Cardi B & Offset

    Cardi B and Offset made headlines in 2018 when word got out that he may have cheated on her. At first, Cardi announced that they were done in a since-deleted Instagram video. But now, they're back together -- so seems as if they were able to make it work after all.

  • Donald & Melania Trump

    There have been so many rumors that Donald Trump has cheated on Melania that our heads are spinning -- most notably, the situation involving adult film star Stormy Daniels. But during an appearance on Good Morning America, Melania said she has "much more important things to think about" than the Don cheating rumors. As far as we know, everything between them is fine, but who knows what could be going on behind the White House doors? 

  • Jennifer Lopez & Alex Rodriguez

    Since even before J.Lo and A-Rod were engaged, there have been cheating rumors swirling around this couple. In fact, immediately after they agreed to spend the rest of their lives together, Jose Canseco said that Alex tried to cheat with his ex-wife, Jessica. But so far, Jennifer seems to remain unfazed.

    "I know who he is, he knows who I am," she told radio show The Breakfast Club in April 2019. "We're just happy. We're not gonna let like other people come out and tell us what our relationship is. I know what our relationship is."

  • Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith

    There have been all kinds of cheating rumors about these two. After all, they've been married for 21 years, so it's bound to happen. But during an episode of her Red Table Talk Facebook Watch show in June, Jada Pinkett Smith admitted that although physical infidelity hasn't happened, there have been "betrayals of the heart" in their marriage that they've had to move past. 

    One thing's for sure, despite what may have happened, Will and Jada are still together, and we're crossing our fingers that will never change.

  • Kim Kardashian & Kanye West

    In September 2018, rumors circulated that Kim cheated on Kanye with Drake when people speculated that the "Kiki" he referenced in his song "In My Feelings" was actually Kim. But in an Instagram comment Kim Kardashian shared at the time, she shut all those rumors down. 

    "Never happened. End of story," she said.

    In October 2010, word on the street was that Justin reportedly cheated with Olivia Munn. At the time, a source told Us Weekly that Justin and Olivia reportedly started hooking up while filming a show called Perfect Couples together, and it spiraled from there. Although Jessica and Justin did temporarily break up in March 2011, they were seen spending time together again by June. 

    Then, in November 2019, another cheating scandal hit when Justin was seen holding hands with Alisha Wainwright, his costar in Palmer, which he was filming at the time. Later, Justin issued a public apology, claiming he'd had too much to drink, and so far, it seems like he and Jess are sticking together and working through it. 

  • Miranda Lambert & Brendan McLoughlin

    Miranda and Brendan's relationship (and marriage, for that matter) was quite a surprise to fans, and some were a little worried once they heard about Brendan's history. Apparently, Brendan cheated on his ex-fiancée in an affair that resulted in his son being born just three days after he and Miranda Lambert met. This gives some people cause to be concerned about what could happen in his relationship with Miranda going forward, but so far, they seem to be going strong.

  • Kit Harington & Rose Leslie

    In November 2018, Russian model Olga Vlaslova claimed that she'd had an affair with Game of Thrones star Kit Harington while he was still dating his current wife, Rose Leslie. But in a statement to Us Weekly, Kit denied the rumors.  

    "The allegations in this story are completely false," his rep said. "He's never even been to Luxembourg nor has he ever met Olga Vlaslova."

  • Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard

    In December 2018, Kayti Edwards claimed that she'd slept with Dax Shepard two years into his relationship with Kristen, but he shut down those rumors immediately. According to what a source told Us Weekly at the time, he and Kristen Bell were working to stay strong in their marriage after the rumors. 

    "Dax denied the allegations publicly because he wanted the world to know that Kristen is his one and only," the insider said. "They're solid. There is absolutely no strain -- their marriage is strong."

  • Mila Kunis & Ashton Kutcher

    Whoops!

    These two are enraptured in a totally different kind of cheating. After Lori Loughlin and Mossimo were arrested in the college admissions scandal, they both pleaded not guilty and are still waiting for a trial to find out if they will see prison time.

    But as for their marriage itself? Still going strong.

    In 2017, Ozzy opened up about cheating on Sharon with hairstylist Michelle Pugh in an interview with Rolling Stone. Ozzy regretted his infidelity and what it ended up doing to his wife and family.

    "I upset my wife and I upset my family and I made a lot of shock and shame. I love my wife, and it made me realize what a f--king idiot I've been," he said at the time. 

    He and Sharon stayed together, and on her show, The Talk, she revealed that all had been forgiven, even if it wasn't easy. "I forgive," she said. "It’s going take a long time to trust, but we’ve been together 36 years, 34 of marriage … I just can’t think of my life without him."
