Admit it, every single time a celebrity couple ends their relationship, you as a fan (or a hater) couldn’t stop wondering and is so keen to find out every juicy detail. Who cheated on who? Who broke up with who? When did it happen? Where did it take place? They were so perfect together, what could’ve gone wrong?
As tempting as it is to see these romances as entertainment, you have to remember that celebrities are just like us, they’re people too. They get tired, they get hurt, they get excited, and they make good and bad choices as well, and some of them are failed relationships. So here are few of the most shocking celebrity break-ups in Hollywood history.
BRITNEY SPEARS AND JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE
If you are the 80s or 90s kid, you would know how incredibly heartbreaking it was when Britney and Justin broke up. It will totally break your heart even more if you find out that they were actually childhood sweethearts because they met at the 90s revival of the Mickey Mouse Club. They’re not the only famous people who are featured there, in fact, the show included, Ryan Gosling, Christina Aguilera, and Keri Russel. However, it was Britney and Justin’s musical careers are what brought them together.
The entire world was already obsessed with them, Britney hitting one more time, and Justin with his former band. They were literally today’s Jay-Z and Beyoncé, who the fans consider as #relationshipgoals. Just like most Hollywood couples, though, Britney and Justin didn’t make it through.
The reason according to the *NSYNC singer is that Britney wanted to get married but he didn’t since they were just supposed to be enjoying their careers and lives.
SELENA GOMEZ AND JUSTIN BIEBER
From the 90s Kids, lets go over to the millennials. This generation’s Britney and Justin is none other than, Disney child-star turned singer, Selena Gomez and Canadian singer, Justin Bieber. Almost everyone loved the fact they became together, and for quite a while people started to think that they could really last, but they were both young and both of them are in the midst of their career peak.
No one really talked about why or how they broke up, but an indirect exchange of words on their social medias were seen by the fans and it seems like, the two singers had a really bad break up. Gomez even hinted that she had been cheated on and some people speculated that it was Bieber.
BRAD PITT AND JENNIFER ANNISTON
They were considered to be Hollywood’s ultimate couple in the year 2000s, but in 2005, a controversial break-up spread all over the media. Brad Pitt was said to be having an affair with his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star, Angelina Jolie at that time, that is why Anniston and Pitt ended their marriage. Neither Pitt nor Jolie confirmed their affair but they went to a trip that same year.
ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRAD PITT
It is believed that if a man cheats on his woman with you, he will most likely cheat on you as well. Looks like Jolie, got a taste of her own medicine this time. Angelina Jolie filed for a divorce just after two years of being married and with six kids. The 52-year-old actor was said to be having an affair.
Sounds familiar right? In an interview with Us magazine, Jennifer Anniston, who was Pitt’s ex-wife said, “That’s karma for you.” Brad and Angelina or also known as Brangelina, was Hollywood’s ultimate couple for quite some time, but just like any other relationships, it wasn’t perfect and they obviously couldn’t handle it anymore that is why a divorce was needed.
TAYLOR SWIFT AND OTHERS
This pop-country singer, on the other hand, has never been a part of what they call “Hollywood’s Dream Couple” probably because people know that almost every relationship Taylor Swift becomes a part of, it is doomed to end. Some people even says she is basically using these celebrities so that she could write songs about them and make millions, which is technically true since most of the songs she has written are about the guys she actually dated. Some famous people she wrote a song about are Joe Jonas, Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer, Taylor Lautner and more. Her recent break-up is with actor Tom Hiddleston, so the people just couldn’t wait to hear TSwift’s newest hits.
