The allure of celebrities is complex. The most honest fans admit it's just pure envy and jealousy of the fame, fortune and privilege. Many are fascinated by the difference in public versus personal images that famous people often project, and some will admit they take perverse satisfaction in seeing their idols fall.
But when the dust settles at the end of the day, the one thing the haves and have -nots both must deal with are broken hearts. In the words of renowned poet Emily Dickinson, “The Heart wants what it wants - or else it does not care,” and that boundless emotion of love is the best natural high that most ever experience. Sadly, when a lover betrays that bond, the anguish is just as fervent and revenge can be devastating—yet sweet.
Although some celebrities keep their revenge plots passionately private, others flaunt them as publicly as they did their "forever after" pairings. No matter what your social or financial status, you can wreak havoc on your cheating ex in a variety of creative ways. Social media lets jilted lovers share their stories with the masses, with or without photos of the victims and villains, a popular option with superstars. Some who have been betrayed took much more drastic measures…and suffered the consequences. It's best to keep vengeful tactics legal so you'll be free to take the plunge again when the heartbreak is on the mend.

Nothing's better than two lovers battling it out in song, which is what Timberlake and Britney Spears did after their breakup, allegedly caused by Spears' dalliance with a backup singer. Timberlake struck first with his video for Cry Me a River with the words, "I already know/ I found out from him/Now there's just no chance/ For you and me, there'll never be." and later, "Your bridges were burned and now it's your turn/To cry, cry me a river." He got in an extra jab by casting a Spears lookalike in the video. Spears struck back with, "Once upon a time there was a little boy who tried so hard to be down/ Playing me publicly, twisting the story, see/ Made it the talk of the town," and later, "Cry me.. cry me.. done/Here's a bridge to walk over it too," in an unreleased song called Clubsong.
