Can you be sued in Virginia if you tell a woman her husband has cheated on her and they divorce?

  • Hopefully you had proof that this woman's husband was cheating. If there is no truth to the accusations; the divorce happened then yes, her ex husband could have sued you because it's 'defimation of character' and you ruined not only his marriage but his reputation' and the courts would decide. However, if the husband did cheat and you witnessed it then you could be called in as a witness, but this generally does not happen.
