Pro athletes have it all—the fame, the talent, and the money. With that said, they usually end up with the most beautiful woman in the world, too. But some of these egotistic jocks are never satisfied, not with money and certainly not with their wives or girlfriends. So they find themselves constantly on the prowl for their next “win.” Here’s a list of six pro athletes who wound up marrying girls most of us only dream of, only to end up cheating on them later on.
Being the youngest athlete to win the Masters, Tiger Eldric Woods was at one point the greatest golfer and role model in the world. In 2009, a tabloid released a story about an illicit affair that Woods had with a nightclub manager named Rachel Uchitel. Although both of them denied the allegations, more women—over a dozen—came forward shortly afterwards stating they also had an affair with the golfer. He eventually admitted to it.

We all know Kobe Bryant for his moves on the basketball court, but it’s his game off the court that gets him on this list. In 2003, Bryant admitted to having an affair with a 19-year-old, who had accused him of sexual assault. (He admitted to having sex with her, but denied the assault allegation.) In 2011, he was accused of cheating again, this time with former Playboy Playmate Jessica Burciaga. She denied the rumors, but a lot of people think he just flashed his cash and paid her to keep quiet. Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Laine (pictured above), filed for divorce later that same year.

Oscar De La Hoya
In 2007, photos were released of a man dressed in drag with a stripper. They were reportedly pictures of retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya—he later admitted that it was, in fact, him in the photos. To make matters worse, he admitted to being unfaithful to his wife of 10 years and blamed his behavior on his alcohol and cocaine addiction. (Photo: s_bukley / Shutterstock.com)

San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker was married to one of the hottest women on TV, Eva Longoria, but in 2007, tabloids released a report that Parker cheated on Longoria with model Alexandra Paressant. Both Parker and Longoria denied the allegations. Three years later, Eva Longoria filed for divorce after new cheating allegations surfaced, accusing Parker of having an affair with his former teammate, Brent Barry’s, wife, Erin Barry.

As a mediocre baseball player, why on Earth would you cheat on your former Playboy Playmate wife? I mean, if it were me, I’d want to lock her down for the long haul. It’s hard enough finding a woman like that, but as an average baseball player at best, Paul Lo Duca definitely dropped the ball. Lo Duca reportedly cheated on his wife, Sonia Flores, in 2006 with a 19-year old college student. Flores filed for divorce that same year.

The pro baseball player was first accused in 2007 of cheating on his wife in with an exotic dancer, and then again in 2008 with Madonna. (She said they were just friends.) After his wife filed for divorce in 2008, even more cheating rumors surfaced, including an affair with a stripper-turned-hairdresser and a fling with the madam of a call-girl agency, of which Rodriguez was reportedly a regular.
