Whenever a Celebrity Breakups, you’re basically guaranteed to read countless headlines and tweets indicate “LOVE IS DEAD.”
Celebrities are our perpetual pop culture mirror; they show us who we are, what we like, and what we want, and when a celeb couple splits, it can feel pretty crummy for all of us who watched their relationship bloom and grow.
From messy divorces to breakups to calling off the wedding just one day before, Hollywood has seen its share of celebrity romances turn volatile quickly. From the 1960s to 2019 and every year in between, there’s never been at least one famous breakup that didn’t make headlines.
Here’s a quick rundown of a few Celebrity Breakups, that was filled with tension, heartbreak, and anger.
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt
After four years of marriage, the couple broke up in 2005.Pitt was already involved with his future wife, Angelina Jolie after the two filmed Mr. & Mrs. Smith together “I can’t say it was one of the highlights of my year,” referring to the photos published of Pitt and Jolie on a beach in Kenya. This perfect couple was one of the ugliest celebrity breakups to date.
Taylor Swift and Harry Styles
It was the split heard ‘round the world when Tay and Harry ended things after a few months in 2013. No one can forget the pictures of a morose Taylor on that boat. She was bummed, but we did get *1989 * out of it.
Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson
Nick and Jessica chronicled their relationship on MTV’s *Newlyweds * and made the world fall in love with them. That’s why it was such a blow when they called it quits in 2005. Both have since remarried and started families, proving that sometimes your happily ever after comes on the second (or later!) try.
Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake
They end up their relationship in 2007, to the dismay of everyone who’d been rooting for them during their rumor-saturated years. Diaz reportedly had no interest in getting married. It was never confirmed whether or not that was the reason for the breakup.
Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson
Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson began dating in 2006 and people were instantly smitten. The pair were fashionable and classy TV darlings who had a refreshing and modern romance. Kruger and Jackson dated for 10 years without even marrying or getting engaged. The pair broke up in 2016 and Kruger confirmed she was dating Norman Reedus in 2017.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
The divorce between Depp and Heard rocked Hollywood when Heard filed for a restraining order against her estranged husband. She accused Depp of physical abuse and provided photos of her bruises. Nobody wanted to believe that Depp’s abusive actions could be true. The split repeatedly made national headlines in 2016.
Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman
When Cruise filed for divorce from Kidman in 2001, she reportedly begged him to stay. She asked to go to marriage counseling, but he refused. At the time, she was pregnant with his child but ultimately had a miscarriage. Kidman wrote that she was stunned when he filed — just as stunned as the public, it turned out “All I can say is it’s been awful.” Today, Kidman is married to country singer Keith Urban.
Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger
This breakup might be one of the messiest divorces Hollywood has ever seen. Baldwin and Basinger’s daughter, Ireland, was in the middle of it, too. A voicemail leaked from 2007, where Baldwin called his daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig.” Basinger referred to the divorce as “nasty.” Things took a turn for the worse when the couple fought in a long custody battle over their daughter. Baldwin was forced to attend anger management and reportedly admitted to wanting to kill Basinger’s lawyers. Basinger claims the two are “cool” now.
