Breakups are hard, aren’t they? It’s even worse if one person has more feelings than the other. It can be a 100% worse if you were the one that was hurt throughout the relationship. Maybe you walked in on your partner in bed with another person or found out that your partner lied about something in his or her past. There's a long list of reasons why people choose to break up, and some of them can be pretty bad.
The best you can hope for is to move on with your life and find someone better suited for you. That’s not always the easiest thing to do for some people, and instead of moving on, they want vengeance or a small dose of revenge. Getting over the fact that your spouse cheated can be a hard pill to swallow, and many people want to see their ex hurt just as much as they're hurting.
What would you do if you were a scorned lover? Could you look the other way? Or would you seek out revenge? It can be difficult to avoid seeking revenge at first because there's so much hurt and anger involved. We have some scandalous stories for you, stories of people who only wanted revenge. These stories will make you cringe and even laugh when you see what extents people will go to in order to seek revenge.
These people stopped at nothing to make their exes pay for what they did to them. If you’re dying to know, then just keep reading.
15 He Double Dipped
Talk about disgusting. This is the second story where a man did the unspeakable.
“I double dipped. My ex and I had broken up for a while but started hanging around and hooking up again. I thought we were slowly getting back together; turns out I was wrong. While we were hooking up, she was also sleeping with another guy. She told me a few weeks later, and I was extremely pissed. One night, another girl asked me to hang out and hook up, and conveniently, my ex wanted to hook up the same night as well. So, I slept with another girl and made sure I didn’t bathe, wash, or clean myself in any way. Ended up going to my ex’s and sleeping with her right after. She’s never found out, but I felt like it was completely deserved” (Thought Catalog).
This is just going too far, in our opinion.
14 Get a Divorce and Then Get Dumped
This girl wasn't messing around when she found out that her partner had cheated on her. She planned a long and slow revenge, one that he wouldn't soon forget. She made sure to ruin her ex’s life before she left him. Watch out for that female wrath guys; it runs deep.
“Ex cheated on me and dumped me for her. Years later, they are married with 2 kids, and we reconnect, have an affair. I convince him to leave his wife for me, which he does. Then, I dumped him as soon as the divorce was final. Sh!tty, I know. Now that I’m older, I feel pretty bad for doing that to his kids” (Thought Catalog).
Ouch! We couldn’t imagine going that far to seek revenge, but women have done far worse than that. Don’t believe us? Just ask Lorena Bobbitt.
13 Updating a Facebook Status
Keep that Facebook password to yourself at all times. Don’t even entrust it with your boyfriend. It wouldn’t be the first time that we heard that an ex went nuts on a Facebook profile. In this case, the ex called her out for cheating, and she couldn’t even get back in.
“When I found out she cheated on me, I updated her status and said ‘I’m a wh--e who likes to cheat with X’ and changed her password. Then I changed her password to her email. She called me and pleaded to bring it down since she was friends with religious members from her church. I laughed and told that b!tch to go to church” (Thought Catalog). Cheating is never a good idea, and in the end, more than just one person gets hurt, especially if you have a vindictive ex.
12 She’s the Devil
The last thing that most people want is for their parents to know how nasty they are. Guys don’t seem to have a problem saying all kinds of awful things to their girlfriends, but that changes once their parents know what kind of person they are.
“Put all the nasty comments he made online in a PDF file and sent it to his parents. You dump me via email? I’ll make sure your parents will give you hell. Saw him years later; he said he was scared of me and thought I was the Devil” (Thought Catalog).
We have to admit that he probably deserved it. You should never post things online that you wouldn’t want your loved ones to see.
11 Asks For a B
This is cold! Ice cold! We can’t even believe a guy would do this no matter how angry he is. This guy went all out when he got some disgusting revenge on his cheating girlfriend. “I knew my first wife was cheating on me when she asked me if her boyfriend could sleep over. The next day, I got with a girl that was hot after me and was kinky for a--l (she told me that’s what she wanted when chasing me). Afterwards, I didn’t clean up, went home, and asked for a BJ from the wife. She accommodated, and when she took it in her mouth, the look on her face was enough to make us even” (Thought Catalog). We have a bad taste in our mouths just reading this. It’s always best to do a sniff test first, ladies!
10 Leaves Her in Jail
The last thing you want to do is to depend on your EX to get you out of jail.
“Cheated on me while I was in basic training. Then claimed it was ‘rape’ (later to find out it wasn’t). Months later, on summer leave, I get a call from a robot, ‘An inmate from (local county jail) is trying to contact you. Press 1 to accept.’ I thought it was one of those prank dial things, so I wanted to play along. Turns out it was her. My number is the only number she memorized. She had a party at her parents’ place while they were out, and it got busted for drugs and other various things. She was crying and telling me how much bail was, obviously hinting on me bailing her out so her parents wouldn’t find out (right away). I told her, ‘Dahahaam. That sucks bruh’ and hung up. She wasted her one phone call. I don’t know the exact terminology but found out she got pinned for cocaine possession, MIP, and a few other alcohol/minor-related felonies” (Reddit).
9 He Stole the Dog
What would you do if your ex-boyfriend stole your dog? That could be a hard thing to get over. People love their pets; they become their family. This guy took his girl’s dog after he found out that she had cheated on him. He went an extra step further as well because that just wasn’t good enough.
“I stole the dog and cut her fucking tires. Oreo was my gift to her for her birthday, but I decided he was mine when she decided to f*ck my friend” (Thought Catalog).
As if that wasn’t bad enough, she also got her tires cut. This guy was truly playing for keeps. She could get over the tires, but losing her dog? That’s not easy to get over at all. Too bad there weren’t custody agreements for dogs; she may have been able to take him to court. Poor Oreo was stuck in the middle.
8 Sleeping with Her Sister
We feel like this one's been done more often than we want to believe. If you happen to have a hot sister, you better hope that her loyalty is strong. If your boyfriend's a douchebag, he may go after her if things go sour. Unfortunately, sometimes, it even happens before a breakup. We’re always surprised that sisters can be so willing to betray one another, but that’s life, right? You've got to really know who your family is before you let them get to the people you love the most. But don’t we all assume that our family members have our backs?
“I banged her younger sister. Yes, she deserved it; she cheated on me. And her sister was WAY better in bed” (Reddit). Ouch! Yes, that’s the kind of confession that would cut deep.
7 Public Humiliation
Nothing is worse than being publicly humiliated, but this guy totally deserved it.
“I slapped my ex across the face in a crowded lecture hall at the university. He had dumped me three days before when I told him about a positive pregnancy test. It later turned out to be a false positive, but I was nineteen and scared as hell, and he had not picked up the phone or answered any texts when I was trying to reach him. I found him in the lecture and told him that I needed to talk to him urgently, and he refused to come and speak with me and told me that it was nothing to do with him at this point. So, I slapped him, resoundingly, in front of five hundred people. And stormed off. I’m not proud of having resorted to violence, and I would never do that now, but at the time, it seemed pretty justified” (Reddit).
6 Finding Out That You’re the Mistress
What would you do if you found out that you were the side piece when you thought you were the main course?
“I dated this man that I worked with for three months, and we were completely infatuated with each other. It was a whirlwind of a romance, and I was so naive in the game of love that I believed everything… until one day at work, under the wiper on my car, I saw there was an envelope that was addressed with my first name, and inside, there was a wedding invitation for him and his fiancée. I was unknowingly a mistress and I decided to take matters into my own hands. I took the name from the invitation, found her number in his phone, called her to discuss, and we ended up making dinner reservations with him as our server. The look on his face when he walked up to the table satisfied me more than he ever did” (Reddit).
5 He Called a Collection Agency
This guy went through a lot of work screwing his ex over, and he hit her with a whopper in the end.
“My ex-wife got pregnant with another man about 3-4 months into our ‘separation,’ announced her pregnancy on our company’s intranet (we both worked at the same company at the time), even though she was planning on quitting, refused to honor parts of our divorce settlement she originally agreed on and signed, and then tried to run off on all her debts. I had collectors harassing me and my family looking for her. Apparently, she changed her number, and she had no known address. Fortunately, I was able to get back at her. I was able to convince her to sell the house she originally wanted to keep as per the divorce settlement but later backed out on. During this process, our realtor used a digital signature platform, so we didn’t have to see one another. Anytime you sign a document on this platform, it leaves a trail with your IP address. My ex-wife had signed every document using a computer from the house her baby daddy lived in. I then used a (free) site online that can trace where an IP address originates, and it gave me approximate GPS coordinates. I went on Google Maps and found the street, and once I knew the street, I could search through my state’s property search to identify all owners on that street. All I had to do was find the name of her boyfriend and basically found where she was living. The next time the collection agencies called, I gave them her new address. Her getting sued for not paying her bills is the least she deserves" (Thought Catalog).
4 She’s Not a Trophy Wife
It’s not the worst revenge, but it would be a nightmare to get rid of.
“I once made the mistake of sleeping with a roommate. It lasted for about 3 months before I decided that I wanted to take things to the next level. He treated me like a girlfriend in many ways already, so I thought this would be no big deal. I was wrong. He told me that he didn’t want to date me because I wasn’t ‘trophy wife material,’ and he didn’t plan on being that successful (enough to score a Twife at least) until he was 30. He then proceeded to take a girl’s virginity, knock her up, ask her to get an abortion, and whine about it to me while asking for a booty call. I dumped a giant vial of fine purple glitter all over his bed and laundry/washing machine. The man hated glitter, what can I say? No regrets” (Thought Catalog).
3 She Broke His Nose
We have to hand it to this teen girl; she really gave it to him after finding out he was using her.
“I feel ashamed of this now, as I know this wasn’t the right response. I was in a terrible relationship for three years with an abusive arse, and I ignored so many red flags, it was my own fault. I was 13-16 in this relationship, and I wasn’t ready for sex. He was two years older and kept pushing the issue. At the end, I found out he had been cheating on me for three months with a mutual ‘friend.’ We were in a big group of friends, and one night, we had all met up, and she was pissed that he wouldn’t leave me, and she told me with a sneer in front of everyone. All those times I met up with them, they were laughing behind my back. I thank her for it now, but back then, at 16, I lost it. Long story short, I broke his goddamn nose” (Reddit).
2 He Excommunicated Her
You never mess with a person’s religion, but we suppose this guy didn’t get the memo. We can’t believe this guy got her in trouble with her church. Some people will go to great lengths to get revenge on their ex.
“My ex-wife was a Jehovah’s Witness, and she basically cheated on me with her relative. I had the choice to break up with her and hide the truth from her family but decided to make it public. She got excommunicated, and her family doesn’t talk to her. I don’t regret it because I feel like I’ve done her a favor. Clearly, she didn’t want to be a Jehovah’s Witness anymore. Double bonus, they stopped knocking on our door” (Thought Catalog). Not only was she excommunicated, but her family won’t even talk to her as well. He may have gone just a little too far.
1 Unrequited Love
This guy just sounds like a sore loser.
“In the 1990s, a girl I wanted to be with spurned me because she ‘doesn’t date lame-ass white boys,’ and she hooked up with a street thug who was trying to get a gangsta rap album. I thought I was in love, but I hated her so much I wished the worst for her. Fast forward to 2012, and she contacts me via Facebook looking to ‘Catch up’ and see what I’m up to. I’m married and have a family, so I kind of got over her ass, but when I got that message, I saw red. Her profile was a few days old, and I sensed she was only letting me know so much. So, I used one of my alternate profiles and searched around until I found her main. She was living with a man in his sixties while trying to raise up four kids all with different baby-daddies. I led her on in the conversations and screenshotted the whole thing before emailing the screens to her ‘Sugardaddy,’ letting him see how she was looking to start over with me, that she was sorry she didn’t give me a proper chance. He decided to leave her and the four hellions she had by moving out of the trailer they were crowded in and moving into his own place” (Reddit).
