After a fairytale-like romance comes… a divorce announcement?
As bizarre as it may be, it seems like a gorgeous diamond ring, dreamy wedding, picture-perfect honeymoon, and adorable babies are not always the ingredients to a union that lasts a lifetime and divorce announcement.
Celebrities’ divorces might seem like they are at an all-time high, but dissolving marriages in Hollywood and beyond is definitely nothing new. Why don’t you wake a trip down memory lane with us, and take a look at some of the most (in)famous divorces of the past few years?
Come with us.
1. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt
When it comes to the type of juicy gossip that you can find, surely the high-profile Aniston-Pitt divorce is right there at the top of the list. These two super-attractive actors met at the height of their careers and, after getting hitched in a fabulous ceremony in Malibu, really seemed to have it all.
Well, that was until Angelina Jolie came into the picture.
2. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
After separating from Jennifer Aniston to marry his stunning Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, you would think that Brad would finally settle down for good, right? Wrong: 11 years and six kids later (both biological and adopted), the pair shocked the world by announcing their intention to divorce “for the health of the family”.
3. Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise
She was fresh out of teen drama Dawson’s Creek, he was… well, one of the sexiest celebs of the 1980s and 1990s. They met, they dated (for a bunch of weeks), they got engaged, they had a daughter, they got married: all in a whirlwind 18 months. But then, a rift potentially caused by Cruise’s affiliation with the Church of Scientology, brought Holmes to file for divorce seven years down the line.
4. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
The arty/eco-friendly/hip(py) pair surprisingly announced its “conscious uncoupling” (“divorce” to all us mortals) in 2014. After ten years together, two children — fittingly named Apple and Moses — and a lot of success both as individuals and as a couple, actress Gwyneth Paltrow and musician Chris Martin were suddenly no longer an item.
5. Kris and Caitlyn Jenner
The couple married in 1991, and went on to have two kids together (adding to their eight children from previous relationships). Nearly 20 years later, the pair split up, and Caitlyn began her transition from being Bruce to becoming Caitlyn.
