To be married to a Victoria’s Secret model or one of the most beautiful singers in the world would be the dream of most men.
But this week, Maroon 5 star Adam Levine was accused of cheating on supermodel pregnant wife Behati Prinsloo, as well as sending X-rated messages to several other women, including his yoga instructor.
And Shakira opened up about her devastation over the end of her marriage after her husband Gerard Piqué fell in love with a PR girl who is 22 years her junior.
So why do men with beautiful and successful partners still feel the need to go astray?
“For all intents and purposes, these men have developed relationships with loyal lovers who, by appearance alone, leave them far behind,” says telepsychologist and relationship expert Emma Kenny.
“Unfortunately, it looks like some men who have access to other beautiful women just can’t help but go astray.”
Here, Emma takes a look at why men who clearly “hit” in the looks department hurt the beautiful women in their lives, and the one trait that connects them is right.
She explains, “Psychological rights are associated with an inflated and pervasive sense of self-worth, self-importance, and exaggerated expectations.”
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
The Maroon 5 star married Victoria’s Secret model Behati in 2014 and they have two daughters – Dusty Rose, eight, and Gio Grace, four.
It was revealed last week that the couple were expecting their third child together, but that happy news is now overshadowed by a slew of fraud allegations against the singer.
Instagram model Summer Straw claimed the couple had a year-long romance, but he denies it.
But he was forced to admit that he sent “inappropriate messages” to Sumner, saying he “crossed a line.”
Another killer detail: Sumner claims he recently contacted her again to ask if he could name his child after her.
Adam is said to have asked, “Okay, serious question. I will have another child, and if this [a] boy, I really want to name him Sumner.”
The allegations were followed by allegations from four other women that he had sent cheeky messages to them, including his former yoga teacher, Alanna Zabel.
Alanna, who coached him from 2007 to 2010, says a text message that said “I want to spend a day with you naked” caused her then-boyfriend to go on a jealous rage.
In his statement, Adam said he was “foolish in speaking to anyone other than my wife in ANY flirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, however, I crossed the line at a regrettable period of my life.
He added. “My wife and my family are all I care about in this world. Being so naive and stupid to risk the only thing that really matters to me was the biggest mistake I could ever make.”
Emma says: “Adam seems like the epitome of a mid-life crisis rock star who wants to prove to himself over and over again that he is still desirable.
“The egocentrism he displays is obvious, and his lack of conscience in repeating these behaviors speaks to the level of rights within his personality.”
Shakira and Gerard Pique
Shakira spoke about her devastation over her breakup with footballer Gerard Pique after a 12-year romance, saying it was one of the hardest and darkest hours of my life.”
The couple, who met in 2010 when he appeared in her Waka Waka video, have two children: Milan, nine, and Sasha, seven.
The relationship ended amid rumors that the 34-year-old Barcelona star was cheating with a much younger woman in June, and she was said to have been hurt and angry when he went public with his new love, 23-year-old Clara Chia Martí.
In an interview with Elle this week, Shakira criticized her ex and said she always put his career and the happiness of her two children first.
“I put my career on the back burner and came to Spain to support him so he can play football and win titles.” she says. “And it was a sacrifice of love.”
Emma says: “Shakira is known the world over for her success and beauty, but that didn’t stop her from being dumped by her ex, who is now living with a 23-year-old boyfriend.
“The excitement that new relationships represent can be exciting and intoxicating, and the lustful love life that these new romances offer can seem temporarily attractive.
“Gerard Piqué was rich before he met Shakira, he is a man who wanted little of everything all his life and because of that he is entitled to it.
“It is likely that as she got older and became a mother, his attraction to her faded. It looks like he traded it in for a newer model, which speaks to the emotional immaturity of this player.”
Sebastian Bear-McClard and Emily Ratajkowski
Model Emily Ratajkowski topped multiple “Sexiest Woman Alive” lists, and she shocked fans when she walked down the aisle with obscure producer Sebastian Bear-McClard in February 2018, just weeks after they started dating.
Their son, Sylvester Apollo Bear, was born in 2021, but the couple broke up in July after rumors that Sebastian cheated on his Victoria’s Secret model wife.
A source told Page Six: “He cheated. He is a serial scammer. It’s disgusting. He is a dog.”
They added that she “discovered even more of the shit he was doing behind her back.”
Emma says: “Sebastian Bear-McClard is a regular guy you’ve hardly heard of, unlike former showbiz star Emily Ratajkowski.
“He was her recovery from a relationship that had gone too far, too fast, which meant she had little time to realize she was marrying a serial cheater.
“It is likely that he saw Emily as a stepping stone to his career goals, and once he was promoted to deputy, he took full advantage of his new position.
“Psychologically, he probably realized that he was taking a hit on appearance and had to confirm his attractiveness by cheating on other women. The basis of his behavior is law.
Denise Van Outen and Eddie Boxhall
Stunning star Denise, 48, has amassed a fortune of £3 million over her 20-year career in television.
She met city trader Eddie Boxhall in 2014, and four years later he was fired from the city firm SCB and Associates for “gross misconduct and material dishonesty.”
Father-of-two Eddie moved in with the host in 2019 and became her co-star in Celebrity Gogglebox.
But in January of this year, they broke up after Denise discovered that he was having sex with other women.
Eddie admitted to sending 20 flirtatious messages and said he was “absolutely gutted” when Denise kicked him out.
But he also lashed out at their relationship on an Instagram story, sharing a note that reads: “I’d rather be alone than with someone who makes me feel lonely.”
Denise told Radio 4: “The only thing I’m really proud of myself is that I know when to leave and I don’t like being taken advantage of.”
Emma says: “Denise Van Outen is beautiful, funny, outgoing and much more attractive than her ex Eddie Boxhall.
“It seems that this relationship was very one-sided, Eddie received all the privileges and perks, and it would not be surprising if he was jealous of her fame and position in society and used deceit to support his titled ego.
“When he came into the spotlight because of her success, he mistakenly believed that he was more powerful and important than he really was and used that false fame to deceive.”
Christine and Paddy McGuinness
Christine McGuinness was a 19-year-old bikini-clad model when comedian Paddy, who is 14 years older, chatted with her at a tennis tournament in Liverpool, and the couple married four years later in 2011.
The couple have three children — twins Leo and Penelope, eight, and Felicity, five — and are open about their autism diagnosis.
But in 2018, the marriage collapsed after pictures of Paddy at a party with Nicole Appleton surfaced.
Although they settled things, the couple announced their split in July amid unconfirmed rumors that Paddy, 48, had cheated on her by kissing a TV co-star.
Kristin is said to have learned about these rumors from TV people while filming Games in April.
“Paddy wasn’t around at all during the Games and the more people got to know Christina, the more they felt she deserved to know what he was up to,” a source told Kristen Bell Tattoos.
“Some of them told her about the kiss and how he was unfaithful. She was very offended and upset.”
Emma says: “Though Christina is less known than her future husband, she is ahead of the curve in looks and has provided him with a loyal and supportive partner over the years.
“Fame brings money to do what you want. You can have lavish holidays, beautiful homes, and designer clothes, and it can make everything possible and disposable.
“Unfortunately for Christina, it’s likely that Paddy got fed up with what he might consider their mundane married life to be, so he allegedly lost his way.
“Like many spoiled celebrities, why work on something when you can just replace it?”
