Therapy has kept Cheadle and partner together for 20 years

The couple has never wed and doesn’t intend to – but the Hotel Rwanda star insists he’s found his life partner in the mother of his two daughters.

And he puts their lasting love down to the fact they’ve been there for each other when times were tough.

He says, “I think we really went through some stuff… We built a house together … We’ve been through it, we’ve been to therapy, we wanted to be together, so we worked it out.”
