The Worst Ways Celebrities Were Dumped By Other Celebrities

By Olivia Harrison 9 months ago

Kim Kardashian + Kris Humphries

When Humphries woke up on that fateful day in 2011, he would never have guessed that his newlywed wife would be filing divorce through gossip site TMZ. It only took 72 days of marital bliss for Kardashian to realize she had made a mistake. After 12 years, Kardashian's world has only become louder, while Humphries resides quietly in LA, swapping basketball for business.

Ariana Madix + Tom Sandoval

Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix were seen as stable, happy and on the slow track to marriage. However, in March of this year, Madix found explicit videos of their co-star Raquel Leviss in Sandoval's phone, and it quickly became one of the biggest Scandals Bravo has ever seen. Now, Sandoval and Madix have just wrapped filming Season 11 and fans are dying to see how these two will move forward.

Laura Dern + Billy Bob Thornton

Laura Dern and Billy Bob Thornton are now two of the world's biggest stars, but back in the '90s, they were a power couple unrivalled. Sadly, their happy engagement was torn to shreds when Dern went away to film and Thornton decided to marry Angelina Jolie, his fifth wife! Thornton and Jolie had their own issues (vials of blood, anybody?) but Dern eventually went on to marry, have kids with, and then divorce musician Ben Harper.

Robert Pattinson + Kristen Stewart

While Edward and Bella got their happy ending, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart weren't quite as lucky. After four years of dating, Stewart had an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders, ending her own relationship with Pattinson, and ruining the marriage of Sanders and his wife, actress Liberty Ross. Today, Stewart is engaged to actress and writer Dylan Meyer, and Pattinson has found love with actress Suki Waterhouse.

Julia Roberts + Kiefer Sutherland

These Flatliners stars had every intention of making it down the aisle, but alas Roberts had plans to be a Runaway Bride. And with who else but Sutherland's best friend and co-star Jason Patric! Patric and Sutherland reconciled as friends in 2009 but little can be said about Roberts' entanglement with the both of them. Sutherland is now happily married to model and actress Cindy Vela and Roberts finally made it down the aisle in 2002 with cinematographer Daniel Moda.

Jennifer Aniston + Brad Pitt

Image Source: Reddit
Angelina Jolie is back at it again! After just three years of marriage, Brad Pitt divorced Jennifer Aniston in 2003, falling in love with Jolie on the set of their rom-com Mr and Mrs Smith. Karma has a way of finding a way though - Jolie and Pitt have had an ongoing (messy) divorce since 2019, and Aniston remains single and happy.

Pete Davidson + Cazzie David

Image Source: Reddit
SNL's Pete Davidson always seemed like an underdog, right up until we realised he'd dumped actress Cazzie David via text after two and a half years of a seemingly happy relationship. What's worse is she discovered he was seeing princess of pop Ariana Grande the very next day on Instagram. Ouch.

Ariana Grande + Jai Brooks

Image Source: Reddit
Speaking of Ariana Grande, she's faced some tough love in the past with her exes. On the opening night of her tour, Grande received a text from her then-boyfriend Jai Brooks telling her he was breaking up with her. After Grande's recent forays into love, it doesn't sound as though she's the luckiest when it comes to matters of the heart.

Sophia Bush + Chad Michael Murray

Image Source: Reddit
These two found love on the set of teen drama One Tree Hill all the way back in 2003. Engaged in 2004, married in 2005, producers had a field day with their on-screen and off-screen romance. However, after just five months of marriage, they divorced when Bush found out Murray had cheated on her with certifiable icon Paris Hilton. And they had to continue working with each other afterwards. Yikes. Today, Bush has just filed for divorce from husband Grant Hughes and Murray is still married to actress Sarah Roemer.

Taylor Swift + Joe Jonas

Image Source: People
What's worse: receiving a text that your partner is splitting up with you, or a 27 second phone call? I think both are pretty atrocious. That's how Joe Jonas broke up with Taylor Swift all the way back in 2008. She even wrote a song about it called Mr. Perfectly Fine (would absolutely recommend post break-up). In 2023, news just broke that Jonas is calling it quits with Queen of the North Sophie Turner, and Swift recently broke up with 1975 front man Matty Healy.

Jude Law + Sienna Miller

Image Source: Variety
This one stings. Jude Law cheated on his previous wife with Alfie co-star Sienna Miller in a scandalous affair, then seven months into their engagement Miller discovered that Law had been sleeping with his children's nanny. It's not all sad news though, Miller is now pregnant with her second child with boyfriend Oli Green, while Law, after fathering SEVEN (I'm guessing it's his looks and not his reputation) children, is happy with his girlfriend Phillipa Coan.

Stassi Schroeder + Patrick Meagher

Patrick Meagher is probably one of the worst additions to Vanderpump Rules. He broke up with Schroeder on their fourth anniversary, just one day before they were supposed to go on a fully-paid vacation. She went with a friend and Meagher wasn't seen in SUR again. Today, he remains private about his life, while Schroeder just welcomed her second child with actor Beau Clark.

Shania Twain + Mutt Lange

It's about to get weird. Lange and Twain were married for 14 blissful years before Twain learnt that Lange had been having an affair with her best friend Marie Thiebaud. Of course, this led to a divorce, but Twain then married Thiebaud's ex-husband Frederic. A husband swap!

Matt Damon + Minnie Driver

Image Source: Us Weekly
The Good Will Hunting co-stars had been dating for a year before Damon announced on The Oprah Winfrey Show that he was single. Driver was completely in the dark, considering the month before he had been declaring his love for her on Letterman. Driver found love in 2019 with filmmaker Addison O'Dea, and Damon met his now-wife Luciana Bozán while filming the flop Stuck On You.

Uma Thurman + Ethan Hawke

Image Source:
It's a rite of passage for the successful actors of the world (just ask Ben Affleck). Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke met on the set of Gattaca in 1996, married in 1998, and divorced 7 years later. The reason? Hawke had an affair with the nanny Ryan Shawhughes. And to make matters even messier, he ended up marrying her. They're still together and Uma is allegedly dating CEO Justin B. Smith.

Daniel Day Lewis + Isabelle Adjani

We've had text, we've had phone call, we'd had Oprah, but in 1985, just after he found out she was pregnant, Daniel Day Lewis broke up with Isabelle Adjani via fax. Yes, you read that right. I wonder which role he was preparing for then. Day Lewis went on to marry Rebecca Miller a year later, and Adjani is now dating entrepreneur Tonico Cacace.

Brandi Glanville + Eddie Cibrian

Image Source: Us Weekly
Before she was a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Brandi Glanville was happily married to actor Eddie Cibrian. Well, happily before she found out that he had cheated on her with first, Sheana Shay (a waitress of Vanderpump Rules fame), and then with country star LeAnn Rimes (then married to Dean Sheremet), after meeting on the set of Northern Lights. Today, Cibrian and Rimes are now married and Glanville's greatest love is her plastic surgeon.

Calvin Harris + Rita Ora

Image Source: Rolling Stone UK
They were a love affair borne out of the UK music scene, but their relationship ended swiftly when Harris tweeted "to address speculation, myself and Rita ended our relationship some time ago. She is a beautiful, talented woman, and I wish her all the best". Don't tell him about the fax machine. Harris went on to marry presenter Vick Hope and Ora is now married to Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi.

Dennis Quaid + Meg Ryan

Image Source: Reddit
Another Hollywood couple destroyed by infidelity, Quaid and Ryan's 10 years of marriage quickly dissolved after Ryan had an affair with her co-star Russell Crowe (I get it, but still). Ryan dated John Mellancamp for a little while but is currently single, while Quaid is blissfully married to Laura Savoie.

Jason Derulo + Jordin Sparks

Image Source: Digital Spy
Sparks and Derulo should have been a match made in heaven, but Derulo unfortunately had other plans. He broke up with his then-girlfriend by phone because he 'wasn't in town' - why he couldn't wait until he got back is anybody's guess. Sparks went on to marry model Dana Isaiah in 2017, and Derulo is left making TikToks on his lonesome.

Russell Brand + Katy Perry

Image Source: Reddit
This unlikely duo is like no other. Brand and Perry had a very short lived marriage, wearing those rings for just 14 months before Brand texted Perry that he was filing for divorce. Thankfully his unpredictable ways of subsided and he's now married to author Laura Brand, while Perry is married to international heartthrob Orlando Bloom. A happy ending for all.

Iggy Azalea + Nick Young

Image Source: Sports Illustrated
Azalea discovered that Young had been sneaking women into their house, but what's worse is that she then found out Young was having a baby with his ex via the media. But hey, now she's got one less problem. Young is currently engaged to Keonna Green, while Azalea is single and spending time with her kids.

Eva Longoria + Tony Parker

Image Source: InStyle
The thought that anyone could do Eva Longoria wrong keeps me up at night. She found hundreds of texts between her husband at the time, Parker, and the wife of his former teammate, Brent Barry. Longoria later found lovely with internet personality José Bastón, and Parker divorced his second wife in 2020.

Mary-Louise Parker + Billy Crudup

Image Source:
At seven months pregnant, the last thing Parker needed was any kind of stress, but Crudup had a different idea. He dumped Parker for his Princess Mononoke co-star Claire Danes. They had known each other for ten years, but despite both being in committed relationships, decided now was the time. They dated for three years when they split up. Parker is single, Crudup is married to Naomi Watts and Danes went on to marry actor Hugh Dancy. At least Parker got rid of the weeds.

Zayn Malik + Perrie Edwards

Image Source: Glamour UK
After four years of pop band dreaminess, Malik called his engagement off with Edwards over a text message, all while she was touring in the US to promote Little Mix's album Black Magic. While Malik has refuted this, considering his behavior with certain Real housewives, it doesn't seem that hard to believe. Malik is currently single after a messy breakup with model Gigi Hadid, and Edwards has a child with footballer Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Kelsey Grammer + Camille Meyer

Image Source: Bravo TV
RHOBH Season 1 Camille Meyer was a nightmare, but after her breakup with Frasier star Kelsey Grammer, she easily became everyone's favorite. While Meyer was in LA looking after her children, Grammer was aboard a plane, getting awfully close to a flight attendant who would later become his wife (two weeks after their divorce was finalized). Unbelievable. Thankfully, Meyer found love with David C. Meyer and they had a beautiful ceremony in 2018.

Lisa Hochstein + Lenny Hochstein

Image Source: Reddit
There was always something a little off about Lenny. After a small separation, the Hochsteins reconciled to give their marriage a chance. What Lisa didn't bank on was her husband cheating on her behind her back and finally letting it slip via hot mic as they were shooting Real Housewives of Miami. The humiliation was enough for Lisa to file. We'll see the fall out on the newest season of RHOM in the next few months. The drama!

Drake + Dollicia Bryan

Image Source: Pinterest
Champagne Papi is apparently rather particular about his appearance. Just a week after Bryan confirmed their relationship status, Drake broke up with her, claiming they had an argument about his hazel color contacts. Since then, Drake has been linked to Nebby, Rihanna and JLo, while Bryan has remained single.

Arnold Schwarzenegger + Maria Shriver

Image Source: Reddit
In 2011, Shriver announced to the world that her marriage was over. Why? Because in 1997, while Shriver was pregnant with their fourth child, their married housekeeper Patty Baena was also pregnant with Schwarzenegger's child. Both women in the same house pregnant by the same man. It was too much for Shriver when she discovered the truth in 2011 and their divorce was finalized in 2021, with Shriver accepting half of everything her husband made during their marriage. Go Shriver!

Vikki Gunvalson + Steve Lodge

Image Source: Reddit
Another one bites the dust. While Gunvalson's proposal to Lodge was welcomed by Bravo fans, Lodge broke up with Gunvalson the day before she was set to star in Ultimate Girls Trip, staying in her house with no plans of budging. At least, she's not back together with Brooks! Lodge married teacher Janis Carlson just months after their breakup, while Gunvalson is currently out there dating, whooping it up!
