Even though celebrities highlighted here are married to women, they’ve been accused of engaging in a relationship with individuals of the same sex. It appears to fans and speculators that these men risk and compromise so much: reputation, fan base, etc.
A study conducted earlier this year in the U.K. revealed that men cheat so they can have the best of both worlds. They love and desire to stay with their partners, or better half, but want to have more sex (gay or straight) on the side, aka recreational sex. The results can be found in The Monogamy Gap: Men, Love, and the Reality of Cheating by Eric Anderson.
Not sure if this explains what motivates men to cheat, but it sure helps to clear up any misgivings about why these men allegedly stepped out on their wives to get some nookie from their boy toys. Here are some male celebrities accused of having gay love affairs.
