Everyone loves a celeb romance – the O.T.T. weddings, the sloppy PDAs and the bizarre baby names (seriously, Apple is a fruit, NOT a name). So, it’s always a sad moment when you hear that yet another celebrity couple has made the decision to part ways.
With Bennifer (JLo and Affleck) breaking up in 2004 (it still feels like yesterday *cries*) and the heart-breaking recent news of Brangelina’s split, it seems as though the dream of a long-lasting celeb couple is fading right before our eyes.
And let’s be honest, there’s no such thing as a healthy divorce. The pressure of paperwork, money, kids (you name it) can quickly turn a good-natured separation into an extremely hostile state of affairs.
So, when you throw in intense media coverage, two celebrity egos and a net worth too high to even comprehend, things are heading in the direction of a complete and utter train-wreck.
Here we are, once again, killing your curiosities: get comfy, grab a cuppa and (shamelessly) revel in the imperfect lives of our favourite celebrities…
Get the hankies ready…
From cheating allegations to ‘it’s not you, it’s me’, very little escapes the media’s watchful eye.
1. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman: What could possibly go wrong?
Throwing it back twenty years to one of the most iconic couples in the Hollywood industry.
They had money, they had fame, they had kids. It seemed that they had everything – and it still fell to bits. Why?
With fundamental differences in the couple’s beliefs (we’ve all heard of Tom’s strange Scientologist ideology), fractures began to show in their relationship and before the public could make further speculation, the couple announced their imminent separation.
