Lauren Weedman is opening up about discovering that her husband David was allegedly having an affair with their son Leo's 18-year-old babysitter. The actress didn't find out about the betrayal until after their split.
After an 11-year relationship, Miz Weedman and David decided to call it quits, but were successfully co-parenting their son when she discovered the inappropriate relationship.
In a story she penned for the New York Post, Weedman shared:
"So when David accidentally left his laptop at my place, I didn't think anything of turning it on. The computer had once belonged to me, and I wanted to make sure I hadn't left any important videos — such as Leo's birth — behind. But the oldest video on David's computer wasn't one of Leo splashing in the bathtub. It was of our babysitter, Simone, sans clothes — and it was dated 2011, a year before David and I had even gotten married."

The Looking star described herself as the "primary breadwinner" in the marriage, and said her ex stayed at home with Leo and his other son from another relationship.
The 47-year-old said it was David who suggested hiring help:
"When Leo was 1, David recommended we hire Simone, an 18-year-old aspiring actress whom he mentored. She would show up in low-cut tops and miniskirts, but I thought that was just because girls are so overly sexualized in Southern California. When a friend of mine told me that she had spotted them together in the street, I assumed that they were discussing her career."
