Celebrity breakups are just as hard to recover from as the real thing. We still remember those couples we thought would last forever but eventually broke up. Break ups have led to some nasty name calling. Women have been called home wreckers and whores. Remember what happened to Angelina Jolie when it was rumored she had something going on with Brad Pitt while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston? She got a lot of shade thrown at her and got called plenty of nasty names.
Some celebrities have cheated on their spouses and blamed it on “sex addiction”. Pretty sure you remember how Eric Benet cheated on Halle Berry and later claimed he was addicted to sex. If you don't remember that, then you probably recall Tiger Woods' story about how he cheated on his wife with several women and blamed it on his addiction to sex.
A few of the celebrities who go through break ups bounce back real quick while others have us worried that they'll never move on. The best thing about celebrity break ups is that most of them have led to some shocking rebounds and great juice for gossip magazines. Take for instance Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush. They dated for a while in 2010 but they eventually broke up. Shortly thereafter Kim hooked up with Kris Humphries and they got married. But not all rebounds end up in marriage. Take for example Madonna and Jesus Luz. Their relationship didn’t last very long. Here are the ten most shocking celebrity rebounds we didn’t see coming.
10 Britney Spears and Charlie Ebersol
As you probably know, Britney has been married twice and rumor has it that she might be engaged to Charlie Ebersol. On the 26th of March, 2015 they were spotted vacationing in Hawaii and the singer was rocking some new bling on her ring finger. The big question on everybody’s minds is if Ebersol finally popped the question.
Britney kicked her ex boyfriend David Lucado to the curb when he was caught on camera kissing another woman. A few weeks after breaking up with Lucado, she met with Ebersol and they are now engaged after dating for only six months. Will this relationship last? We’ll just wait and see.
9 Ariana Grande and Big Sean
Big Sean was dating Naya Rivera before they broke up and he started dating Ariana Grande. During an interview with Global Grind, Big Sean opened up and mentioned he found it ironical that Rivera would announce her pregnancy the same day he was dropping his new album. Was she trying to take the attention away from Big Sean? It’s hard to tell but it looks like someone might have some unfinished business.
Big Sean, however, in his interview said that he has no hard feelings. He met Ariana a few years back at Wango Tango for a radio show. At the time she was a huge fan and she came up to him rapping a song he did with Wiz Khalifa, “Gang Bang”. They started kicking it and remained friends for a year, although everybody had an inkling that they were on.
8 Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Kim dated football stud Reggie Bush before they broke up in March of 2010. But by the end of 2010, Kim had already hooked up with Kris Humphries, a rebound which led to a 72-day marriage. Although their marriage is not the shortest in history, their wedding cost per day metric eclipsed everyone else's. After their split, Kim moved on pretty fast and wished Kris all the best. Kris on the other hand was still hung up on Kim and was willing to do whatever it took to restore their union. Clearly he didn’t do enough because Kim went ahead and married Kanye West.
7 Khloe Kardashian and French Montana
Before French Montana came into the picture, Khloe Kardashian was married to Lamar Odom. They got married in September 2009, only a month after they met. After going through a rough patch in their marriage, Khloe filed for a divorce in December 2013. There were rumors about cheating, allegations of drug abuse and meetings with lawyers. Back when they had their reality show, Khloe and Lamar, the two seemed lovey-dovey only for Jennifer Richardson to come out in July 2013 claiming that she had an affair with Lamar. A month later Polina Polonsky came forward and admitted that she too had an affair with Lamar. That’s when things started going south for the couple. After their divorce, Khloe started dating French Montana on and off since 2014. She admits that she doesn’t want to be labeled to anyone right now because she is still trying to figure out her emotions.
6 Madonna and Jesus Luz
Before Madonna jumped into the arms of Jesus Luz, she was married to Guy Ritchie, with whom she has a son. She has several times admitted that she sometimes felt incarcerated while married to director husband. There were times when she wanted to express herself as an artist but she didn’t think her husband would have been comfortable with the extent she was willing to go to. Their seven-year marriage came to an end on 15th December 2008. Barely two months later, she was spotted with her Brazilian hunk, Jesus Luz, who by the way is 28 years her junior. Unfortunately, their little romance didn’t last very long.
5 Christina Aguilera and Matt Rutler
Christina married record producer Jordan Bratman in 2005 after dating for more than two years. They split in 2011 and Christina later resurfaced with 25-year-old production assistant, Matt Rutler. They got engaged in February 2014 and their daughter was born in August 2014. Do these two plan to get married any time soon? In an interview with People magazine, Christina said that she intends to get married but not at the moment. She just got back to work and her hands are full. Well, we are waiting for the big day, Christina.
4 Amber Heard and Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp spent 14 years with French actress and model Vanessa Paradis, but they never got married despite having two children together. It’s not that the Pirates of the Caribbean star was opposed to marriage, he just didn’t feel there was a need to put it on paper or for somebody to say “okay, you’re married.” Do you believe his reason for not putting a ring on it? The couple announced their split in June 2012.
He later got engaged to Amber Heard after dating for a year. According to People magazine, Depp said that Heard, 27, is a free spirit and a great match for him and his individuality.
3 Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez
Halle Berry dated French Canadian model Gabriel Aubry in November 2005 and they welcomed a baby girl, Nahla, in 2008. They split on April 30th 2010 and soon after, Berry began dating French actor, Olivier Martinez. They got engaged in March 2012 and got married on July 13th, 2013. Berry wanted to move with her daughter to France but Aubry objected the move claiming that it would interfere with their joint custody arrangement. On November 22, 2012, Aubry and Martinez got into a fight at Berry’s residence. Aubry said that Martinez threatened to kill him if he did not let them move to France. As a result of the fight, they both obtained restraining orders against each other. Phew, talk about drama.
2 Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz
Eva Longoria is one woman who will tell you that even beautiful women get cheated on by their husbands. Longoria got married in a civil service to Spurs point guard Tony Parker on July 6, 2007 at a Paris city hall followed by a Catholic wedding ceremony on July 7th the same year. They later filed for a divorce on November 17, 2010. Longoria claims that Parker cheated on her earlier on in the marriage and she had also discovered hundreds of text messages from another woman on his phone. The divorce was finalized on January 28, 2011. Longoria hooked up with Penelope Cruz’s younger brother, Eduardo Cruz to help her get over her divorce from Parker. Sadly, they didn’t last very long and split in 2012.
1 Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
Kutcher began dating Demi Moore in 2003 and three years later they got married in a private ceremony. Among the guests who attended the wedding was Moore’s ex husband, Bruce Willis. On November 2011, Moore announced that she intended to end their marriage after being separated for more than one year. They finalized their divorce on November 27, 2013.
Before the divorce was finalized, Kutcher began dating Mila Kunis in April 2012. They became engaged in February 2014. Kunis gave birth to their daughter, Wyatt Isabelle on October 1, 2014.
