Scandalous! 15 Celebrities Who Have (Allegedly) Hooked Up with the Help

Over the years, quite a few celebrities have hooked up with “the help.” Some have cheated on their spouses with the nanny, others have hooked up with a back-up dancer (or two). Either way, here are some of the juiciest “help” hook-ups ever.


Arnold Schwarzenegger



The former governor of California found himself in hot water when rumors surfaced that he had an affair with his housekeeper, Mildred Baena. Having a tryst with the help may have been forgivable, but Arnold soon learned that he fathered a child with Baena. Confirmed with a DNA test, his son Joseph is now 18-years-old.


Ethan Hawke



While married to Uma Thurman, the actor reportedly had an affair with his kids’ nanny, Ryan Shawhughes. Many believe that was the final straw that broke his marriage. The two divorced in 2003, and while Hawke originally denied having any kind of inappropriate relationship with Ryan, the two did marry in 2008 and have since had two children together.


Ben Affleck



Although the Gone Girl star denies having a fling with the help, several reports indicate that he was having sex with nanny Christine Ouzounian. The rumors began shortly after Affleck and wife, Jennifer Garner, announced their decision to split.


David Beckham



It was back in 2004 when a woman named Rebecca Loos decided to go public about the alleged affair she had with her boss, David Beckham. Loos worked as Beckham’s personal assistant, and claims to have had a fling with the former Real Madrid player. She previously told the press that Becks called her his “second wife.”


Britney Spears



Pop star Britney Spears had two serious relationships with men who worked for her. First, she fell in love with and married back-up dancer Kevin Federline (the two have sons Sean Preston and Jayden James together). Years after their split, Britney started dating (and became engaged to) one of her managers, Jason Trawick. The two split in 2013.





Christina Milian ended her marriage to The-Dream after he took the help on vacation and the paparazzi caught the two making out in the ocean waves. The-Dream was frolicking with an assistant while Millian was pregnant with his baby.


Heidi Klum



After her split from Seal, Heidi Klum was dating her bodyguard, Martin Kirsten. The two dated for about a year-and-a-half before calling it quits.


Jude Law



Jude Law was married to Sienna Miller when he had an affair with babysitter Daisy Wright. The actor admitted to being unfaithful with the help, and although he publicly apologized, he and Miller separated a year later.


Robin Williams



The late great actor and comedian got a divorce from wife Valerie Velardi in 1988 only to marry the couple’s son’s babysitter, Marsha Garces the following year. He and Garces had two children together before splitting up in 2008.


Mick Jagger



The rocker is certainly no stranger to sex, that is, if you believe the claims made in “Mick: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger.” The author, Chris Anderson, wrote that the Rolling Stones member had sex with over 4,000 women in his lifetime. One of those women? His kids’ nanny. First wife Bianca Jagger filed for divorce after six years of marriage on grounds of adultery. Ex-wife Jerry Hall also cited infidelity as the cause for their split in 1999 after nine years of marriage and more than two decades of dating.


Bill Clinton



It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the former President of the United States on this list. He infamously had an affair with Monica Lewinsky, who worked as an intern for him.


Jennifer Lopez



JLo is another woman who has found love with the help. She married back-up dancer Chris Judd in 2001. They divorced two years later, and Lopez dated a few other men (including Ben Affleck and Marc Anthony) before falling in love with another back-up dancer. Lopez and Beau “Casper” Smart are currently “on again.”





In 2014, Ciara was forced to end her engagement to rapper, Future, when she learned that he was having an affair with wardrobe consultant, Tyrina Lee.


Robert “Mutt” Lange



Shania Twain faced heartbreak when she learned that her husband, Robert “Mutt” Lange, was having an affair the help. He and his secretary, Marie-Anne Thiébaud—who was also one of Shania’s “best friends”—ended up getting married, and are still together. After the devastating split, Twain found love with Thiébaud’s ex, Frédéric. The two wed in 2011.


Gavin Rossdale



Last, but certainly not least, is Gavin Rossdale, the most recent celebrity to be accused of having an affair with the help. Recent reports indicate that Rossdale cheated on ex-wife Gwen Stefani with his kids’ nanny, Mindy Mann. Rumors suggest that Rossdale and Mann carried on an affair for three years.
