[Watch] How Tina Campbell Learned Her Husband Was Cheating
Two years ago, Tina Campbell revealed that her husband, Teddy Campbell, had been unfaithful to her with multiple women—including a close family friend. The couple decided to stay together to work on their marriage, and it appears that the duo is better because of it. The couple recently appeared on “The Steve Harvey Show” to partake in a segment called “Life After Infidelity,” which is when Tina revealed how she learned of Teddy’s multiple affairs. According to the singer and reality star, a close friend blew the whistle.
“Someone who knows me very well was watching the show, and I was always saying, ‘I could leave all of this. I could just go and be with my husband. I don’t need none of this. It’s just me and Teddy and they can have this.’ She was like, ‘Listen, I hate to have to say this to you, but I followed the information that I found out for six months to make sure that it was true because I don’t want to break your heart, but don’t stop doing what you’re doing because you may need to take care of you and your kids.’ So they told me about two of them.”
Tina confronted Teddy with the information she received, and he tried to deny it.
“I talked to my husband two days before, I was in New York, I was like, ‘Listen, honey, I got reason to believe that something is going on. I’m coming to you because I love you, and I want to work through whatever this is, but I need you to tell me the truth.’ We stayed on the phone for an hour and eight minutes. He didn’t give me nothing.”
When she returned home, she confronted Teddy again. Then, she confronted the woman, which is when she realized that her friend was right.
“The person who it was, she used to work for me. That broke my heart; she was like a godmother to my children. She had access to my home, to come get my kids, all of that stuff. She was in the mix of our family. I called, and she didn’t answer her phone. When we got home on Super Bowl Sunday, I [told Teddy] ‘Come upstairs.’ I said ‘Are you having an affair with her?’ He said ‘No.’ I said ‘Call her,’ and so he did. I said, ‘Are you sleeping with my husband?’ And she hung up the phone, so I had my answer.”
It’s amazing that their marriage survived betrayal of this magnitude.
