Being a celebrity is amazing! You get paid well, can afford to buy stupid luxurious items, fans love you, but on the other hand, there is an obvious downside — if something goes wrong in your personal life, there’s no way the Internet won’t yell about it the next day. Celebs basically have little to no privacy when it comes to their love life but finding out that you were dumped from some random article is too brutal.
Here are the most heartless celebrity breakups!
1. Charlize Theron and Sean Penn
The lovely Charlize Theron was dating Sean Penn in 2015, and they were even planning to get married, but something went wrong. At some point, she just stopped taking Sean’s calls or answering his texts without an apparent reason. Penn reportedly tried to communicate with her for a few weeks, but in the end, he “got the message.” There must have been more to it, but we’ll never know.
2. Amber Heard and Johnny Depp
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp met in 2010 on the set of The Rum Diary. They started dating in 2012, and in February 2015, they had a secret wedding. What could go wrong, right? In May of the same year, Heard filed for divorce, publicly accusing her husband of alcoholism and domestic abuse. As a result of this massive court case, the actor paid his ex-wife $ 7 million, which she promised to donate to charity.
3. Brooklyn Beckham and Chloe Moretz
The stars started their on-again, off-again relationship in 2014. Two years later, they broke it off and then got back together soon after. But it was clearly over when in 2018, Brooklyn announced that it was over between him and Chloe when he was caught kissing a hot young model Lexi Wood. What’s messed up is that Chloe found out about it from the paparazzi.
4. Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian
Rob and Blac started an affair in early 2016, and in April, they announced their engagement. Soon we found out that they were already expecting a child. But young parents broke up a month after their daughter Dream was born. Chyna sent Rob a steamy video of her smooching another man and also stated that Rob had abused her. This whole side piece secret was new to him, and then he found out this wasn’t the first time she’d cheated on him. Reportedly, Blac slept with eight different dudes in one month!
5. Rihanna and Chris Brown
This brutal, abusive relationship has been discussed over and over again, but it will never be okay to forget it. Right before the 2009 Grammy ceremony, Chris Brown, in a fit of jealousy, beat his girlfriend of two years, Rihanna, right in the car. The singer screamed, called for help, tried to escape, but Chris hit her in the face, head and then started choking her. Rihanna ended up in a hospital and filed a lawsuit against Chris. As a result, Brown was sentenced to six months of community service and a suspended sentence of five years.
6. Madonna And Sean Penn
Sean Penn’s marriage to Madonna lasted four years and was one of the most scandalous in Hollywood history. She was repeatedly subjected to severe beatings and one day, completely hammered Sean tied her to a radiator with a cord and beat her with a baseball bat. This must be the most abusive relationship on this list. At least they got divorced in 1989.
7. Jennifer Lopez And Ojani Noa
Jennifer met her first husband at a restaurant in Miami, where he worked as a waiter. In February 1997, the lovers got married but divorced a year later because the dude tried to blackmail the singer. He demanded $5 million, threatening to leak private things about their life together. As a result, he never saw the money, and the court banned him from ever talking about his relationship with Jennifer.
