Celebs

By Scarlett Adler

Breakups are tough, and they're arguably worse in the limelight. This might explain why some celebrities can't help but throw shade at their exes. Read on for some of Hollywood's most vengeful splits.

Kris Humphries & Kim Kardashian

It might be hard to believe Kim Kardashian ever had a husband before Kanye West, but here we are. The queen of celebrity culture had another king before the famous rapper, namely NBA player Kris Humphries.

But if you’re a fan of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, you already know how that ended -- with a marriage that lasted a whopping 72 days. “There’s definitely a lot about that world that is not entirely real,” Kris told The Players’ Tribune about the short-lived relationship.

Jeffree Star & André Marhold

In September 2020, beauty guru Jeffree Star split from his beau Andre Marhold, and the breakup wasn't pretty. "I'm sure a lot of y'all can relate, but sometimes, when you meet people, surprise - they're not really who they say they are," Star shared in a scandalous post about the situation.

He and the former b-ball player were together for a few weeks before things went up in flames. "Jeffree Lynn got a little played," Star told his fans. According to the mogul, his new ex was less than trustworthy. But Marhold isn’t keeping quiet - he has big plans to spill the “Star tea” when he attains 100,000 subs on YouTube.

Pete Davidson & Ariana Grande

Pop princess Ariana and talented comedian Pete Davidson seemed like a match made in heaven with their #couplegoals relationship. That is until their romance came to an end after 6 months of dating. According to Davidson, the split was no surprise since Ari is "the Queen of shade."

Davidson blasted his iconic ex after Grande dismissed their romance as a "distraction" in a Vogue interview. "Can you imagine if I did that?" Pete said about the famous singer. "My career would be over... if I spray-painted myself brown... and just started s****ing on my ex." Woah, that one leaves us speechless!

Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna

The Kardashian sisters aren’t the only ones whose relationships have courted controversy over the past decade. Their low-key brother Rob has had his fair share of romantic drama, too. He and Black Chyna may have been together for just over a year, but they’ll be remembered for a long time to come.

Their partnership was rocky from the start, from Chyna’s infamous spat with Kylie Jenner to the model's allegations that Rob leaked some of her NSFW pictures. What did the Kardashian sibling have to say? "I had my daughter [with Chyna] out of love, but this woman left the second I paid for her body surgery," he shared.

Demi Lovato & Max Ehrich

In July 2020, Demi was head-over-heels in love with her fiance Max Ehrich. "I knew I loved you the moment I met you," the singer said of her beau. "It was something I can't describe to anyone." So how did the lovebirds go from wedding-planners to nearly-strangers in just a few months?

Max later called it "the craziest thing" and implied the breakup was a publicity stunt. "Pete Davidson [too] didn't deserve to feel this way," he said. But Lovato seems to have moved on quickly. The star threw shade at her ex at the 2020 People's Choice Awards and even produced a breakup anthem, Still Have Me.

Selena Gomez & Justin Bieber

This one's a bit of a throwback, but we’re sure you’ll remember it well. In 2010, young Selena and Justin were two of the most famous teenage heartthrobs in the world. And no doubt more than a few (thousand) hearts were broken when they made their romance public.

Years after splitting, tensions still seemed to run high. As late as 2016, the former love-bugs were going off on socials. "If you can't handle the hate, then stop posting pictures… lol,” she wrote after Biebs posted a new couple's pic. "It's funny to see people that used me for attention… try to point the finger," he shot back.

Taylor Swift & Calvin Harris

Harris and Rihanna's musical collab, This Is What You Came For, was one of the hottest jams of 2016. But despite the ‘good vibes’ the song brought to listeners, the reality behind the tune was not so positive. The song's backstory resulted in a nasty spat between former lovers Taylor and Calvin.

Co-writer Nils Sjöberg was the key behind the rocky aftermath of Harris and T-Swift's romance. And that’s because Nils Sjoberg was actually… Swift herself! How’s that for a twist? Harris claimed that Taylor revealed the truth to dent his reputation. "You need someone new to… bury like Katy [Perry], but I'm not that guy," he said.

Lil Xan & Noah Cyrus

Young love is a complicated thing, and no celebrity breakup sums that up quite as well as this eclectic couple. Noah Cyrus and Lil Xan met on Instagram and were only together for 2 months, but it was long enough for things to get very, very chaotic.

Right after their break-up, the mudslinging started, as both artists accused the other of infidelity. Cyrus even shared some very suspicious-looking photos of Xan’s “bruised” neck, while he claimed that the entire fling was fake, manufactured by their shared record company. Double yikes!

Katy Perry & Russel Brand

This A-list couple ended things so badly that Perry told Vogue she had to "Keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day” rather than think about it. While neither party has revealed why they split, there are a few things we do know about their rather intense relationship.

She revealed the Brit was “hysterical" but took the jokes too far when he jested about his partner to thousands of people on stage. “He didn't know I was in the audience... at one of his shows,” Perry shared. The pair have apparently not spoken to each other since Brand informed her of their divorce... over text. Ouch.

Jennifer Aniston & Brad Pitt

This glamorous duo was one of the most iconic couples of the 90s, so much so that some fans still root for them even 15 years later. It’s hard to blame them - we’re still mourning the split, too! But nothing lasts forever, and Jennifer has since shared her own thoughts on the matter.

Aniston said that her gorgeous ex had a "sensitivity chip missing.” It may sound harsh, but it’s probably a reference to how Brad jumped straight from Jen to fellow A-lister Angelina Jolie. Not that this duo worked out too well either, as we’ll get into later.

Amber Heard & Johnny Depp

It wasn't the first time two actors fell in love on set - it’s probably one of the rather common beginnings to Hollywood love stories. But few famous couples have ended quite as bad as these two, seeing as their romance turned out to be more like a scary film.

Their divorce resulted in not just a $7M payout and massive public controversy, but it also cost Johnny Depp his role in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Now that’s gotta hurt. Who knew that these stars would lead lives as dramatic as their on-screen counterparts?

Liam Hemsworth & Miley Cyrus

It was an entire decade ago that this couple first fell in love on-screen during The Last Song, but their real-life relationship went on for much longer. And through that time, it really seemed like a climb just to hold things together. So how did it turn out?

Well, Miley’s discography has shared plenty about the young relationship, whether it was “Coming in like a wrecking ball” to not knowing “All the times that I faked it, thank God for the thoughts in my head." It seems like all that creative inspiration might be the best thing that came out of the relationship.

Hannah Brown & Jed Wyatt

There’s a good reason the 2019 Bachelorette was touted as the most dramatic season to be put on TV. While the beautiful Hannah Brown was breaking hearts left and right, it turned out to be her heart on the chopping board in the show's aftermath. Better get the popcorn ready!

Hannah Brown & Jed WyattHannah Brown & Jed Wyatt
The Bachelorette Season 15 Episode 12 via ABC

Brown's fiance of choice had been more than a little deceptive. His entry in the contest was not really a search for love, considering he had a secret girlfriend back home the entire time! Hannah later said, “I could fake a smile, but I couldn't shake the doubt, and looking back, I know why."

Tristan Thompson & Khloe Kardashian

When it comes to scandalous relationships, Khloe certainly hasn’t been left in her sibling's shadows. She and her long-term boyfriend had enough troubles, but everything came to a head when she discovered his affair with Jordyn Woods, a friend of the famous family.

And though they’ve since reconciled as friends, Khloe hasn’t let him forget the betrayal. In an episode of KUWTK, she even handed him a stuffed pillow named ‘Quarantina’ saying, “This is Tina. I know how much you like other women, so..." That must be one salty friendship.

Harry Jowsey & Francesca Farago

There seems to be a bit of a theme with reality television romances. Once an adorable romance, Jowsey and Farago's relationship turned out to be too hot to handle. It may have begun as something hot and heavy, but it crashed and burned into a mess that neither person is likely to forget any time soon.

These two models may look gorgeous on camera, but their relationship after the cameras stopped rolling was anything but. Farago later took to social media, claiming, “I was being played,” and Jowsey retaliated with threats of a lawsuit, accusing her of destructive gossip.

Kristen Stewart & Rob Pattinson

This relationship may have defined our teen years, but one of the lovers didn’t want to be associated with it at all. Stewart and Pattinson were together at the height of the Twilight craze before calling it quits. In an interview with T Magazine, Kristen said, “It wasn't real life anymore. And that was gross to me."

Kristen Stewart & Rob PattinsonKristen Stewart & Rob Pattinson

According to her, the entire relationship “was made into a product [...] part of a story for entertainment value." While fans were in fits over #TeamEdward or #TeamBella, we’re starting to think that #TeamJacob was probably the smartest choice after all.

Tana Mongeau & Bella Thorne

Tana may be all over social media headlines for her short-lived marriage to Jake Paul, but that’s not the only relationship she’s had that left us wondering. It was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment, but at one point, she also had a fling with Bella Thorne.

The former Disney star has had her share of scandals over the last few years, and her romance with Mongeau is no exception. Thorne claimed the YouTuber “Started dating [her] for Twitter.” Bella later added, “She [TanaMongeau] broke girl code, I’m over it.”

Caitlyn Jenner & Kris Jenner

We’ve been following the Kardashian clan's scandals from the very beginning, and we may have discovered where the K-kids get their dramatic flair from. That’s right, like mothers like daughters. It seems the parents' split might be the most scandalous breakup of all.

We guess reality TV doesn't always work out so well off-screen. "Kris says she is the one who came up with the idea and decided to actively pitch it,” Caitlyn said in her autobiography. As it turns out, the former Olympic athlete may have been the one who helmed the beginning of the world-changing show, not the momager.

Madison Beer & Jack Gilinsky

Back in 2017, a shocking audio clip was leaked on the internet, and the end of this young relationship was on everyone's mind. "What happened in the video is real. There is no going around that," Madison later tweeted to her fans. So what was in the video?

The leaked clip presented shocking audio of ex-boyfriend Jack Gilinsky insulting his then-girlfriend over and over. “I was blinded by love,” Beer admitted when questioned over the disturbing audio. Glinsky also acknowledged his faults, saying, "There's no justifying the words” he used against her.

Griffin Johnson & Dixie D'Amelio

Millions of teens have spent the last year watching and rewatching the D’Amelio sister's dance moves on TikTok. But looking at the girl's past relationships, we’re more interested in what was going on behind the iPhone cameras. Because if the gossip is anything to go by, it was a LOT.

It seems like poor Dixie was outdone by someone else's… feet? No, we didn’t stutter. After the end of the relationship, Johnson admitted he did indeed Snapchat another girl, encouraging her to “send toes.” D’Amelio also acknowledged the scandal, leaking screenshots of her ex and proving his betrayal.

Charli D'Amelio & Chase Hudson

Another from the D’Amelio family, these girls sure have had it rough! She and Chase might have been the most iconic teen heartthrobs of 2019, but these Tiktokers were soon dancing out of each other's lives. Charli bit back at Hudson online, writing, "Want me to talk about how you treated me throughout our relationship?"

Charli D'Amelio & Chase HudsonCharli D'Amelio & Chase Hudson

And it wasn’t an empty threat, as it turned out the rumors around her former boyfriend were all true. It seems he and Nessa Barrett were indeed a little too close for comfort. The two teens may have been on a break, but we doubt that made Charli feel any better. “Your loss,” she later shot at her ex.

Zayn Malik & Perrie Edwards

Zayn Malik may be one of the most sought-after young pop stars globally, but it seems his former girlfriend doesn’t have many glowing reviews to share. The Little Mix star wrote a tell-all book called Our World, where she shared the shocking truth of their long-term relationship.

They may have been together for a long time, but you wouldn’t know it from the breakup. "A four-year relationship, two-year engagement, ended by a simple text," Edwards wrote. Perrie didn't hold back when discussing the breakup, as she even wrote the song Shoutout to My Ex about Zayn.

Jay Alvarrez & Alexis Ren

Social media vloggers' lives and relationships used to be a mainstay of entertainment back in the days, and these two YouTubers were at the top of the game. And though we loved seeing their relationship play out on the small screen, things weren’t so sunny behind it.

"The relationship wasn't good for his business anymore," Ren tweeted in a savage response to questions about the breakup. She came through it stronger, though, adding, "That time you confused a lesson for a soulmate," about her ex. And what a lesson to learn!

Dove Cameron & Ryan McCartan

These two co-stars got together at a formative time in their lives, but we’re curious about how much it affected them. "I truly didn't think I would be able to make it through that part of my life," McCartan shared about the upsetting end to his engagement with Dove Cameron.

But like all relationships, there were two sides to the story. "My fiancée cheated on and left me," he shared to shocked fans. But Cameron would soon defend herself, saying on her own Insta, "I feel like I should do a full-blown interview clarifying all of the things that you've inaccurately assumed.”

Alissa Violet & Jake Paul

Jake Paul has had his fair share of controversies over his relatively short career, so it’s no surprise that his former relationship is one of them. "I took her from 2,000 followers and working at Panera Bread to 5 million followers... and... $300,000 a year," he said about his ex.

Alissa Violet & Jake PaulAlissa Violet & Jake Paul

But Alissa held her own, saying the scathing remarks were on par for her former boyfriend. "This is the manipulation that he always does," she replied, claiming he had brought home other girls during their relationship (and not as guest-vloggers). "It was a fun ride... onto bigger and better!" Violet added.

Britney Spears & Justin Timberlake

We’re jumping in the time machine and heading back to the era of belly button piercings and frosted tips - that’s right, the early 00s! And this couple was no doubt the king and queen of the period. But little did we know, there was more to their breakup than met the eye.

Or should we say the ear? That’s right, like so many musicians, their relationship led to a flood of creativity. Remember the old-school banger Cry Me A River? That’s right, the line, “You don't have to say what you did; I already know, I found out from him," was written by a heartbroken JT within hours of the breakup.

Colton Underwood & Cassie Randolph

Watching two people fall in love on-screen is always going to pull on our heart-strings, but how often do we think about the aftermath? It seems we should have paid more attention to this Bachelor Nation couple because things got messy the moment the credits rolled.

Randolph soon accused her ex of being in it for the money when he wrote his tell-all memoir, The First Time. "You informed me you intend to monetize our breakup,” Cassie wrote in response to the book. As if that wasn’t enough, within a few months she filed a restraining order, accusing him of being “obsessive.”

Chad Michael Murray & Sofia Bush

One Tree Hill was built on juicy teenage drama, so you may be shocked to hear that it was even crazier backstage. "If we had a behind-the-scenes show, the drama would be so much f****** better than the drama that the writers write," Sofia told Andy Cohen in an interview about the show.

It’s hardly a shocker, given her and Chad's VERY short-lived marriage while filming the show together. Seeing your ex every day can’t be easy. "[The marriage] wasn't a thing I actually really wanted," Sofia revealed, which may be a bit of a sting to her ex. "Everybody's been 22 and stupid."

Chrishell Stause & Justin Hartley

If there’s anything we’ve learned from these lists, it’s that breaking up over text isn’t just relegated to high-school flings. Chrishell held nothing back when revealing the painful end to her marriage with Justin. "I found out because he texted me that he had filed [...] Forty-five minutes later, the world knew," she said.

Chrishell might live amongst the glamorous mansions and bungalows of the LA elite, but life certainly isn’t as easy as you might think since her divorce. "Because of the crazy way this went down, people want answers - but I f****** want answers," the reality star shared. Honestly, we don’t blame her.

Rihanna & Everyone

We’ve had a catastrophic amount of drama on this list so far, but it’s usually only one relationship per person. But now we’re about to share the track record of just one person. That’s right; it’s the ‘bad girl’ herself, queen of throwing shade and spilling tea.

Rihanna & EveryoneRihanna & Everyone

Being a multi-million dollar powerhouse, it’s no surprise that you’d have high standards in your relationships. "None of my exes are married, or in a happy relationship, so it's safe to say that I wasn't da problem lol,” Riri shared on Instagram in response to questions about her rocky relationships.

Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie

Brad may seem like a chill guy, but his past marriages might imply otherwise. He and his second wife were a Hollywood staple since they first got together, and their split sent shockwaves through the media. Brad himself described the breakup as “scarring”. But what did Angie have to say?

Well, she was certainly a little more damning than her ex, when she shared her side with Harper’s Bazaar. "My body has been through a lot over the past decade, particularly the past four years. I have both the visible and invisible scars to show for it," Jolie said.

Mod Sun & Bella Thorne

Bella Thorne seems to be burning through some controversial relationships. The former Disney star and her boyfriend Mod Sun broke up in 2019, which “hurt like hell,” according to Sun. Though it seemed to be a mutual split at first, things soon took a strange turn.

Mod began making threats, telling Bella he would sell all of her belongings on eBay. When she came onto his property to retrieve the goods, Sun called the cops. No one was arrested, but the musician stood by the decision. "I was hoping it would be a wake-up call for her,” he told iHeartRadio.

Zac Efron & Sami Miró

You probably automatically associate Zac with his High School Musical ex Vanessa, and you aren’t the only one. But it turns out the heartthrob had another, more intense breakup back in 2016. That would be his relationship with businesswoman Sami Miró.

While we don’t know the exact reasons for the split, we know it can’t have been good since Miró took to Twitter to reveal the “hot mess” that was their relationship. "When he texts you, saying he's trying so hard to move on, but you already moved on months ago," she said in several off-hand tweets.

Jordin Sparks & Jason Derulo

We’re betting Jordin had to take one step at a time to get over this catastrophic end to her three-year relationship with Jason Derulo. Why would that be? Well, it seems that one of them was more interested in fixing their relationship than the other.

After arguing one day and an apology from Jordin, Derulo took some pretty extreme steps as a result. "We had an argument ... I apologized. He told me he loved me and then [just] didn't call," Sparks said. That’s right, after three years of dating, he ghosted. We’re not sure we want any more of the details.

Kelsey Grammer & Camille Grammer

While their marriage was one of the longest-lasting on this list, it certainly didn't end any easier than the others. And it all came out on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Reality television strikes again! But what really brought their celebrity marriage to an end?

It sounds like many things caused their breakup, but the relationship came to an end officially when Kelsey called his wife asking for a divorce. It turns out he had met a British flight attendant and just couldn’t help himself. According to an interview with Us Weekly, the whole experience was “so humiliating” for Camille.

Sammi Giancola & Ronnie Ortiz-Magro

Jersey Shore was arguably one of the more controversial reality shows to grace our screens, and it’s not too hard to see why. From brawls to hookups, the young couples in Seaside Heights went through more drama than we could imagine, and this couple probably got it worse of all.

As if Ronnie making fun of her toes wasn’t enough, poor Sammi also received a letter from her housemates detailing her boyfriend's cheating. By 2016 they were officially over, and Sammi chose to put the “toxic situations” on the show's set behind her. Sounds like a smart idea, really.

Jessica Batten & Mark Anthony Cuevas

Another reality show couple that went straight down the drain, this pair met on the set of the Netflix production Love is Blind. And it seems like you have to be missing some of your senses to end up in a relationship like this one, as Jessica Batten was about to find out.

Once again, it seems like the best drama actually occurred behind-the-scenes, at least according to Jessica. She soon discovered that her husband had been found with another woman while the show was still in production. Batten responded to the news saying, “Wow. News to me, I only knew about one.”

J.Lo & All of Her Exes

Turns out Riri isn’t the only diva with a bad track record. JLo may claim that her love don’t cost a thing, but we’re willing to bet her former husbands disagree. This glamorous pop-star has had her relationships in the limelight for decades, and for good reason.

But that hasn’t stopped her from shading former lovers. On Watch What Happens Live, Lopez revealed that while she "Thought [her exes] were all hot, other people might be like, 'What the [heck] is she thinking?'" The star hammered the shade home when she said, “I'm not a looks, person. I don't know if you noticed over the years?"

Joe Jonas & Gigi Hadid

Back in 2015, the world was hardly aware of the Hadid family. All some people knew was that Joe Jonas had taken to the red carpet with a gorgeous blonde on his arm. Gigi and Joe became an extremely popular couple, and her modeling career soon took off. But the happiness wouldn’t last long.

According to the pop-star, the end of the relationship was...abrupt, to say the least. In an interview with The Daily Mirror, he said, “I think it's interesting that she moved on so quickly," about his ex's new relationship with Zayn Malik. “I think it’s funny.” We’re just not sure who’s laughing.

So far, we’ve seen our celebrity exes throwing shade in the most fantastic ways, from serving up spicy diss tracks to filing for restraining orders. But after splitting with blockbuster hero Tom Cruise, actress Nicole Kidman shared her relief in more subtle and hilarious ways.

Jason Nash & Trisha Paytas

Trisha Paytas is perhaps more famous for stirring tea and starting drama than she is for her vlogs and Mukbang videos. So it was no surprise when she revealed her breakup with Jason Nash, a mainstay of the famous Vlog Squad. Paytas promised fans a lot of tea, and she definitely spilled it.

"So, y'all remember that guy that I thought was so great?" Trisha said in her video about the breakup. It turned out that not only was Nash unfaithful (according to Trisha), but he was encouraged to dump her by none other than David Dobrik. "I'm sick to my stomach," Paytas said about the whole affair.

Younes Bendjima & Kourtney Kardashian

That’s right; the Kardashians seem to be a never-ending fountain of tea! Even the eldest sibling couldn’t avoid it, with Kourtney’s Instagram spat with her ex Younes Bendjima making waves on social media. It all started with a seemingly harmless bikini pic.

The breakup must have been fresh in his mind, as Bendjima clapped back in his exes comment section, asking, "That's what you need to show to get likes?" Ouch! We may not know exactly how things ended, but that comment was a pretty good indication that it wasn’t pretty.

Paris Hilton & Aleks Novakovic

If you’ve seen the documentary This is Paris, we probably don’t need to explain this one. The turbulent relationship was front and center in the film, particularly during prep for Hilton's performance at the EDM festival, Tomorrowland. In a particularly heated moment, she took Novakovic’s VIP bracelet and had security remove him.

In the aftermath of the relationship and the premiere of her documentary, Paris shared some scathing remarks about the soccer player on The Kyle and Jackie Show. "He's not an ex, by the way," she said. "Don't even give him that title!" Something tells us these two aren’t staying friends.

Nick Young & Iggy Azalea

Pranks can be a lot of fun, but you never know when they might go too far. That was certainly the case when it came to this famous relationship after Young’s NBA teammates filmed a poorly thought out prank on their unsuspecting teammate. The consequences were not too funny.

In the leaked footage, fellow athlete D’Angelo Russell included audio of Young admitting to infidelity during his relationship. It could have been part of the joke if Iggy hadn’t also caught him cheating in person. She didn’t take it lightly, saying in an interview, “I texted him… and I'm like, 'Hey, I'm burning your sh*t.'"

Mariah Carey & Eminem

Why you so obsessed with me? may have been a simple lyric in one of Mariah’s hit songs, but it wasn’t a work of fiction. Obsessed paints a scathing picture of a “delusional” fellow celebrity who lies to blogs about their non-existent relationship. We’d hate to be the subject of it, so we can’t imagine how it felt for Eminem.

That’s right, the Rap God was apparently living in a dream world, according to Mariah. She went even further on Larry King Live, saying “ "I hung out with him... probably... a total of four times?” Eminem responded with a diss track of his own and threatened to spill the tea on the diva.

The Weeknd & Selena Gomez

It’s starting to look like diss tracks are a pattern in Hollywood relationships since the same thing happened with this power couple. The Weeknd soon took to the stage after the breakup with Call Out My Name. Remember that next time you want to date a musician!

On the heartbroken track, the Weeknd went into excruciating detail about their time together. "I helped you out of a broken place... But falling for you was my mistake," he sang.
