Let’s be honest; the celebrity world is full of drama. While much of this drama has to do with showbiz enemies, frenemies, and sometimes record labels or on-set conflicts, a lot of it also resides within romantic relationships. Everyone knows love can be a treacherous path, but these celeb couples are next-level dramatic…
Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren
Tiger Woods is arguably one of the most famous golf stars in the world, but his personal life has often caused him trouble.
While Tiger and Elin Nordegren tied the knot in 2004, things become pretty complicated and dramatic when rumors of infidelity hit the golfer. Everything from car chases and golf club weapons soon made their way into the picture, and it played out for the whole world to see. They eventually divorced in 2010.
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson
As one of the most popular members of the Kardashian family, fans were over the moon to learn that Khloe Kardashian had found love in the form of basketball player Tristan Thompson. Things became even more exciting when the couple announced that they were expecting a child, but it didn’t take too long for things to come crumbling down.
When her due date was looming, Khloe heard reports that Tristan had cheated on her. Things became even worse when he reportedly cheated on her again with a family friend, Jordyn Woods.
Dylan Sprouse and Dayna Frazer
While everyone knows that Dylan Sprouse is now in a happy relationship with model Barbra Palvin, that doesn’t mean that he hasn’t dated others. It seems as though this actor and brewery owner has a thing for models, as he dated Dayna Frazer back in 2017.
However, fans realized their relationship had come to an end when Dayna posted a photograph of herself crying, noting in the caption that she had found out that Dylan had cheated on her. While Dylan denies this, it called for the end of their relationship.
Katy Perry and Russell Brand
Fans of Katy Perry are happy to know that she’s finally getting ready to settle down with Orlando Bloom, but that doesn’t mean that her relationships have all been perfect.
In 2010, Katy tied the knot with English comedian and actor Russell Brand – and it didn’t take long for people to realize that things weren’t quite right. With a history of addiction and short romantic flings, Russell soon broke hearts across the world when he dumped his wife by text message after two years of marriage.
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
Many people long for the day that #Jelena potentially gets back together, but we have a feeling that it might not happen. That’s not just because Biebs has since moved on and found himself a wife, but also because their relationship was pretty dramatic.
The couple was on and off again over the course of a few years, and while they were amazing when they were on, things got messy when they were off. To make matters worse, both used their songs to spill all of the dirt on their relationship.
Anne Hathaway and Raffaello Follieri
Anne Hathaway has taken on some huge Hollywood roles in the past, and many fans were confused to learn that she was dating someone out of the spotlight during the early ‘00s.
Yes, Anne dated the Italian real estate developer Raffaello Follieri for a few years – but things turned sour when Raffaello was investigated for fraud. A huge legal battle ensued, and it didn’t take long for their relationship to come to an end. Thankfully, she has since moved on with her husband, Adam Shulman.
Evan Peters and Emma Roberts
As two big names in the world of acting, there’s no doubt about the fact that fans were happy to hear that Evan Peters and Emma Roberts were dating. They were first spotted together in 2012, but they broke up and got back together a few times over the course of their seven-year relationship.
However, the most scandalous and dramatic moment in their relationship came when Emma was arrested in 2013 on domestic abuse charges. While they worked through their problems and even got engaged, they called it quits in 2019.
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa
If you’re familiar with both Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa separately, you’ll probably know that they’re pretty dramatic on their own. So, just imagine how dramatic they are when there’s a marriage involved!
The couple tied the knot in 2013, and while some people expected them to go the whole hog, the whole thing came crumbling down. It was pretty difficult for fans to watch, as their downfall included cheating accusations, digs at parenting techniques, and some seriously bad-mouthed social media posts.
Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake
While most people know Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake for their epic double-denim look, there’s no doubt about the fact that their relationship wasn’t perfect. The couple dated for three years and become the ultimate “it” couple of the ‘90s and early ‘00s, but it ended on a sour note.
It was reported that Britney cheated on JT with a choreographer, and so he called it quits on their relationship. In response, he also wrote his hit song, “Cry Me A River,” – so it worked out pretty well.
Bella Thorne and Charlie Puth
Whether you know her as an actress, author, or director, it’s fair to say that Bella Thorne is a hugely famous name in the world of Hollywood. Yet, did you know that she used to date singer Charlie Puth?
The couple was an item in 2016, and their love seemed to be blossoming. However, this all came to an end in December when fans got to see their love pop in front of their very eyes. That’s because it was reported that Bella had cheated on Charlie with her ex, Tyler Posey.
Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian
While there will always be a dear place in our hearts for the years that Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian were a couple, we know that it’s best for them to part. After all, everything is always so much more dramatic when there is a Kardashian involved.
Although the couple welcomed three adorable children into the world during their relationship, Scott’s intense partying meant their relationship couldn’t progress any further. In fact, they’re no longer together but still rock their co-parenting techniques.
Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt
It’s fair to say Brad Pitt has been in some pretty high-profile relationships in the past. While most people know him for his marriage to Angelina Jolie, it’s hard to forget the time that he called Jennifer Aniston his girlfriend.
The couple was all the rage during the early ‘00s, and while many thought they would go the way and tie the knot, this all came to an end in 2005. Fans were upset to hear that they had broken up, and even more upset to know that he quickly started dating Angelina.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have been on and off more than your average light switch, and we just haven’t been able to keep up. One minute they’re dating, the next they’re not. Then they’re getting married, and then they’re breaking up a few minutes later.
It’s all been rather confusing, but it’s also been rather dramatic. Since separating after their nuptials, things have been even more dramatic in that they have both moved on – and they have both had certain things to say about the matter.
Kevin Hart and Eniko Parrish
Kevin Hart may be one of the most famous comedians and actors in the business, but that doesn’t mean that he has been able to live a life free of drama. Currently married to Eniko Parrish, this relationship posed a few questions to begin with, as many questioned whether he cheated on his ex-wife with Eniko before they eventually divorced.
To make matters worse, Kevin was forced to admit his infidelities with another woman in 2017 while Eniko was pregnant with their son. However, they are still together today.
Iggy Azalea and Nick Young
Sometimes, it seems as though couples are perfect in every way. However, this all changes when they break out, and all of their dirty laundry is aired for the whole world to hear. This was the case for Iggy Azalea and Nick Young, whose engagement came to an end in 2016.
While many believed that they were the coolest couple in the business, this all changed when it was revealed that Nick had been taking women back to their home and cheating on her. Iggy found out when she just happened to check the security footage.
Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee
Although this is arguably one of the most iconic couple outfits of all time, many people look back on the marriage of Pamela Anderson and Tommy Anderson with an incredulous view.
That’s because these two rock and rollers tied the knot just four days after they went on their first date, and fans just couldn’t believe it. While they welcomed two children together and were ultimately married for four years, their relationship was tumultuous and dramatic. This drama was often played out for the cameras to see.
Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris
Everyone seems to have a lot to say about Taylor Swift’s love life, and while some of these remarks aren’t warranted, that doesn’t mean that her relationships haven’t been dramatic. One of the most dramatic of the lot came in the form of Calvin Harris.
Although they seemed to have it made when they were together, things turned sour when their relationship came to an end. This was due to the fact that the world learned that Taylor wrote one of Calvin’s most famous songs – and he wasn’t happy to give away this credit.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes proved to be so influential as a couple during their marriage that they even inspired their own couple name.
While most people loved #TomKat, there were others who thought that their relationship was a little too dramatic. This was largely due to Tom’s religious beliefs, and his impact on the world of Hollywood. It wasn’t long before their marriage came to an end – and Tom has been single for much of his life ever since.
Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna
Yes, we’ve got another Kardashian to add to the list. While Rob Kardashian now stays out of the limelight, we have a feeling that this might have something to do with his hugely dramatic relationship with Blac Chyna.
Their relationship didn’t start well to begin with, as Blac Chyna is the baby mama of Kylie Jenner’s boyfriend at the time, Tyga. This caused a huge amount of controversy and divide within the family, and things just seemed to get worse and worse as the weeks went by.
Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams
If you’re familiar with Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, you’ll know that these two started off on a pretty dramatic foot anyway. The two actors were both cast in The Notebook, but Ryan originally hated his co-star.
Although he tried to get her fired from the movie, he was forced to work with her – and a relationship eventually blossomed. However, Allie and Noah’s tumultuous relationship seemed to become a reality for these two, and they eventually had to call things quits after numerous attempts to make it work.
Cardi B and Offset
If you follow these two on social media, you’ll know that they have just purchased an incredible house together and that things are going pretty well between them. However, it hasn’t always been sunshine and daisies for these two rappers.
The couple first started dating in 2017 and became engaged just a few months later. Soon enough, they had welcomed a child into the world, but then the cheating rumors hit their marriage. While Cardi broke things off with her cheating husband, they are now back together.
Noah Cyrus and Lil Xan
As another famous member of the Cyrus family, you might not be surprised to learn that Miley’s little sister has also been caught up in some relationship drama.
Noah and Lil Xan started dating in 2018, and for a while, they looked as though they couldn’t be more loved up if they tried. However, they soon both took to social media to post some of the most dramatic and emotional videos and posts we have ever seen – and it was clear to see that they were no longer together.
Billy Bob Thornton and Angelina Jolie
When you think of Angelina Jolie’s relationships, you probably think of her marriage to Brad Pitt – but she also had a rather dramatic marriage before Brad came into the picture. During her three-year marriage to Billy Bob Thornton in the early ‘00s, the couple came under fire for their strange ways.
Not only did they get matching tattoos and buy side-by-side funeral plots, but they also carried vials of each other’s blood around their necks. In the end, Billy was insecure about his wife’s fame, and their relationship crumbled.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard
Both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are huge names in the world of famous faces, and fans were over the moon to learn that they were dating.
Things became even more exciting when the couple tied the knot, but the excitement didn’t last too long. It’s since been noted that the relationship between Johnny and Amber was incredibly violent, and Amber has testified that her ex-husband was abusive on many occasions. While Johnny denies this, the case is still ongoing.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore
Over the course of history, many of the most famous celebrity couples in the world have had a large age gap between them – and Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were one of those couples.
Despite the fact that Demi was a whopping 16 years older than her husband, that didn’t stop their marriage from lasting for eight years. However, there were many critics who slammed their marriage, including Demi’s own daughter. According to reports, Rumer Willis didn’t let Ashton forget about their age difference.
Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson
Although she was once one of the biggest names in the acting world, there’s no doubt about the fact that LiLo’s life has become pretty intense and dramatic over the years. From run-ins with the law to her experiences with illegal substances, she’s struggled to maintain a drama-free life.
She brought a new girlfriend into this drama in the late ‘00s, when she called Samantha Ronson her new beau. Of course, this wasn’t an easy relationship. Fans got to see the couple fight in the street on a regular basis, and it was pretty intense.
Kate Middleton and Prince William
While it’s easy to assume that Kate Middleton and Prince William have had the perfect fairytale marriage you’d expect from the Royal Family, that just hasn’t been the case. The couple has had to deal with some pretty dramatic turn of events in the past, and most of them have been caused by their own actions.
Although most people know that these two started dating in college, did you know that the Prince had cold feet and broke things off a short while later? Alongside this, William has also been accused of cheating.
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
Twilight fans across the world were over the moon when they learned that their very own Bella Swan and Edward Cullen were a couple in real life. They seemed to fit so perfectly together, and many hoped that they would be together forever.
Of course, things don’t always go to plan, and this was the case for Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart. That’s because photos were released in 2012 that showed Kristen getting a little too up close and personal with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman.
Farrah Fawcett and Lee Majors
Known for her role in Charlie’s Angels, Farrah Fawcett was one of the most famous women of the 1970s. Everyone wanted to either be just like her or date her, and Lee Majors had that chance.
After being set up by his publicist with Farrah, the two actors tied the knot in 1973. However, their marriage was unlike any other. They would often only see each other for one or two weeks per year, and they were both focused on their careers rather than their marriage.
Renee Zellweger and Kenny Chesney
Largely known for her role as Bridget Jones and Roxy in Chicago, Renee Zellweger is a huge name in the world of Hollywood – and Kenny Chesney is a pretty big name too. Despite this, fans were surprised to hear that the two of them had secretly tied the knot in 2005.
While they kept their love on the low-down, their annulment four months later soon made its way into the limelight. Renee noted that the cause for divorce was “fraud,” and questions soon arose surrounding Kenny’s romantic preferences.
