Over the years, Ben Affleck’s love relationships with Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Garner, and Lopez again have received a lot of media attention. But a less popular woman was the one who started the rumors. Affleck and Garner made their breakup official in 2015. In the same year, rumors started to spread that Affleck had started dating their kids’ babysitter. At the time, Affleck vowed to sue over the charges, but he didn’t. Garner acknowledged the tryst in 2016, one year before the stars filed for divorce. Garner, on the other hand, stated the two had long since separated when she learned of the news.

The history of Charlie Sheen’s life is widely known. But most of it was speculative in the 1990s. A lady by the name of Heidi Fleiss was detained in Los Angeles in 1993 for running a ring of sexual workers while serving as a madam. Although Fleiss has often kept her client list under wraps, the actor Charlie Sheen from “Hot Shots!” was one name that surfaced early. This was because when Fleiss was arrested, a traveler’s check with Sheen’s name on it was discovered on her person. Sheen testified during Fleiss’s trial in 1995, stating that he had utilized her services more than 20 times.

Some actors fight to conceal a breakup, while others try to conceal a six-year romance in its entirety. This was the situation with Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes, who allegedly dated from 2013 through 2019. In actuality, speculations about them started to circulate right away, but persistent denials prevented news reports from reporting it as truth. Even though Foxx and Holmes were often shown touching hands, they continued to refute the allegations. The public didn’t learn they had ever been together until after the couple broke up.

The Sexuality of Ellen Degeneres

Although we’d like to believe that we’ve moved past sexual orientation speculation, this wasn’t the case in the 1990s. Ellen DeGeneres, who at the time was best known for her comedy of the same name, came out as a lesbian in 1997. News of the program she featured as a lesbian leaked, which had several media outlets wonder if DeGeneres was going to come out. Others, however, questioned whether the entire situation wasn’t just a ratings gimmick. But DeGeneres put the rumor to rest by really revealing her sexuality a few weeks before the program aired.

2011 marked the conclusion of actor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s term as governor of California. His romance with Maria Shriver also ended that year. The news that Schwarzenegger had a baby in 1997 with their housekeeper, Mildred Baena, led to their divorce, even though it wouldn’t be legally finalized for another 10 years. Schwarzenegger didn’t know this until the kid started developing his recognizable characteristics, at which time he began financially supporting the boy.

The Charges Against Kevin Spacey

In retrospect, what began as a lighthearted cartoon comedy turned disturbingly shrewd. Vulgar accusations regarding actor Kevin Spacey’s sexuality and inner affairs reached the “Family Guy” writing room in the middle of the 2000s. Since then, several more people have made similar charges, essentially ending Spacey’s career and damaging his reputation.

Although there are other Hollywood power couples, few have contributed as much to the 21st century as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Pitt had been married to Jennifer Aniston of “Friends” fame from 2000 to 2005; however, after their divorce, rumors began to circulate regarding Pitt and Angelina Jolie, his “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” co-star. The parties involved dismissed the rumors, but in 2008, after Brangelina had gained fame, they acknowledged that they had fallen in love while filming, although maintained that there had been no actual infidelity.
