Cheating: It's Not Right (But It Can Actually Be Okay)

What should you do if your partner cheats on you? Is it best to keep calm and carry on, or should you name and shame them publicly? Writes Rena Dipti Annobil

Earlier this month, Rob Kardashian (best known as the younger brother of Kim) decided on the latter when he took to Twitter to accuse Hot Right Now singer Rita Ora of cheating on him with ‘nearly 20 dudes’.

The angry tweets included one outrageous rant aimed at Rita saying: ‘You let me get you pregnant’.

Rob later deleted his comments, but by then the damage had been done and his dirty laundry had been well and truly washed and dried across the internet.

So if your partner cheats, do you go all out to make them public enemy number one?

The bitch in me says: ‘Slash their tyres; maybe put a brick through their window; burn their clothes and broadcast their disgusting behaviour to anyone who’ll listen’.

But that’s hardly dignified is it? Particularly for celebrities, who often complain about the press delving into their private affairs.

The other extreme is to sweep everything under the carpet; say nothing and stay together ‘for the sake of the kids’.

The more composed side of me prefers the way that K-Patz dealt with the revelation that Kirsten Stewart had cheated on Robert Pattinson.

I think it’s healthy to admit a mistake or that someone has hurt you; but also try to be the bigger person and hold your head up – accept that someone has made a mistake, and move on with life…

Ok, and perhaps a sneaky brick through a window to appease that inner beast.
