Robert F. Kennedy is caught up in a cheating scandal, but fiancee Cheryl Hines is apparently standing by her man.
The couple was seen together at a Fourth of July parade in the Kennedy enclave of Hyannis Port, Massachusetts. Bobby was spotted with his arm around Cheryl, who was visibly wearing her engagement ring.
Kennedy, the 60-year-old son of former United States Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy Sr., was caught in the middle of a bitter divorce between a prominent plastic surgeon and his wife. Divorce documents claim that RFK Jr. had a possible affair with the wife.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is now set to be deposed by the estranged husband of that alleged mistress, Chelsea Kirwan — and he’s due in court just days before he’s supposed to walk the aisle with Hines.
At the very least, the exact nature of Chelsea’s relationship with Bobby will come out in court when Prof Kirwan will appeal to try and modify the protection order currently in place over his visitation rights with his three children with Chelsea.
MailOnline last week revealed that Cheryl, 48, plans to marry Bobby, 60, despite allegations that he cheated on her for two years with mom-of-four Chelsea, 42.
Sources confirm the wedding is ‘imminent’ and that the ceremony will be held at the Kennedys compound on Hyannis Port, Mass.
This isn’t the first cheating scandal for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. He has been married twice already, and started his relationship with Cheryl Hines in 2012 while he was still married to his second wife, Mary Richardson. A few months later Richardson was found dead of a suicide.
While Bobby and Cheryl started their relationship, he also started seeing Kirwan on the side, a source told The National Enquirer.
“When Bobby eyeballed the woman in a hot exercise outfit at the gym, he didn’t waste a minute before putting on a full-court press to win her over to be more than just friends,” the source said. “Bobby got her to give him a lift home in her fancy convertible, and from there he convinced her to hook up with him.”
Neither Robert F. Kennedy Jr. nor Cheryl Hines have commented on the alleged affair, but judging by the wedding plans they seem to be doing just fine.
