The internet, Twitter to be exact, broke into a frenzy when photos surfaced of Kevin Hart with a mystery woman. The rumors of cheating began shortly after. The irony of the rumors is that his previous marriage ended due to a combination of things, including infidelity. Which proposes the idea that cheating may not be one those habits you can break in 21 days. 

The last few weeks in celebrity gossip have involved cheating. Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian. The release of Jay-Z's 4:44 which documented his infidelity and apology to his wife Beyoncé. Carmelo Anthony cheating on his wife La La Anthony. And various other stories, but we know this isn't just an action that plagues celebrities.  

The intimate details of celebrities may not reveal all the facts, but studies have been conducted about cheating. Psychologists have completed studies to address cheating and the myths that entangle it. An article written for Psychology Today by Jay Kent-Ferraro, Ph.D., details his own transgressions and essentially breaks down why cheating occurs. Through his examples and own experiences he argues that cheating is a purposeful action. Once the purpose of the infidelity is determined the corrective action and action of healing can occur. 

Similarly Jay-Z speaks on the same revelation and also realizing that he didn't want to go Eric Benét. He realized losing one of the most beautiful women in the world wasn't really worth it.
