Although they broke up and moved on with other people, we just can’t seem to get over these high-profile celebrity relationships that we thought were a match made in heaven. Here are 15 celebrity couples that we wish could have stood the test of time.
Kanye and Alexis
Before there was Kanye West and Kim Kardashian or even Kanye and Amber Rose, there was Kanye and Alexis. The Chicago rapper/producer met Alexis Phifer back in 2002 and the cute couple dated on and off for four years before West finally popped the question. After an 18-month whirlwind engagement the two went their separate ways citing his hectic touring schedule as the cause. West dated then-unknown model Amber Rose before settling down with the reality show superstar who is now pregnant with their first child.

Yesterday, we reported that Regina King and Malcolm Jamal Warner had ended their relationship. Sources claimed that it wasn’t in the most friendliest of terms. Supposedly, Malcolm asked Regina and her son to leave the home they shared together. Well today, Regina King tweeted a response to the story (in the screenshot above) claiming that she and Malcolm are “good.”
Maybe it’s just me but I’m still a bit on the confused side. Does she and Malcolm are good mean that they aren’t broken up or that he didn’t throw she and her son out the house like their relationship was a Tyler Perry movie? The phrases “Life happens” and “Forward motion” could apply to the fact that she’s starting a new chapter in her life, without Malcolm or it could mean that she’s moving past the rumor madness.
Who knows. We’re sure the details will come out sooner or later.
What do you make of Regina’s cryptic message? Do you think she and Malcolm are still together or not?
Last week reported that after a lengthy custody battle, a judge awarded Deion Sanders primary custody of his two sons. And now, we’ve just learned that the retired football star has also been granted custody of his 9-year-old daughter, whom he also shares with estranged wife, Pilar. This appears to be the final blow for the model because while she fought for her husband for custody of the boys, she retained custody of their daughter.
Pilar’s camp tells RumorFix that she was caught off guard by the decision and wasn’t aware that she lost custody until she went to pick her daughter up from school.
“Pilar’s legal team was caught completely off guard. She found out as she was driving up to pick up her daughter at school today. The whole thing is unbelievable. She has been a stay at home mother all there children’s lives,” said one of her reps.
Pilar’s publicist, Kali Bowyer struck back in the media, suggesting that the judge presiding over the case was somehow corrupted.
“Unbelievable. Whose payroll is this judge on? Certainly not the taxpayers.,” Bowyer told the NY Post.
The mother of three took to her Twitter to express her disappointment about how things went down.
She also vowed to be the voice for other mothers who have “unjustly” lost custody their children.
According to reports, the courts have arranged for Pilar to see her children every Thursday for two hours and on the first, third and fifth weekends of every month, she’ll have the children from Thursday to Sunday.
What do you think of the court’s decision to grant Deion primary custody of his daughter?
Yesterday we told you that television producer and girlfriend of Deion Sanders, Tracey E. Edmonds testified in the seemingly never-ending child custody case between Deion and his estranged wife Pilar. Today it was announced that the courts finally reached a decision. According to TMZ, Deion was granted full custody of the couple’s two sons, who are 11 and 13. Pilar and Deion will share custody of their 9-year-old daughter.
Deion quickly took to his Twitter page to celebrate his victory.
“GOD IS SO GOOD AND FAITHFUL! !!! GOD IS SO WONDERFUL! TRUTH,” he tweeted.
“Thank all of you whom prayed for me and my children. The Truth is what it is. Never doubt God! Truth”
Meanwhile, Pilar thanked her supporters, despite her loss.
“Thank U So Much 2 Every1 Who Has Supported n Prayed 4 Me & My Babies! 4 Those Who Came 2 Tell The TRUTH Thank U 4 Not Being Bullied Down,” she tweeted.
“I’ve never seen anything like this! WOWOWOW!”
She also tweeted a cryptic message to Bishop T.D. Jakes and Pastor Omar Jahwar, accusing them of committing unspecified, but underhanded deeds. Many believe it has something to do with her custody battle.
We’re not 100% sure what that’s about, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted. So far there has been no word from Bishop Jakes or his representatives.
Are you shocked by the outcome of the case? What do you think of the shot Pilar took at Bishop Jakes and Pastor Omar Jahwar?
The divorce between retired NFL star, Deion Sanders and his estranged wife Pilar Sanders has got to be one of the ugliest in entertainment history. Both Deion and Pilar have made media headlines for all kinds of things since news broke that the two would be going their separate ways, from the ugly custody battle over their children to Pilar alleging that Deion was abusive to her during their relationship. According to Diary of a Hollywood Street King, the most recent addition to the saga is that Pilar allegedly cheated on Deion with a 22-year-old aspiring singer named Derrick ‘D-Jo’ Smith and an unnamed multi-platinum New York rapper. Pilar has since denied those claims, putting an axe to any speculations that she may have been unfaithful to Deion by taking a polygraph test in which she is questioned about her sexual conduct during her relationship. She exclusively released her results to RumorFix.
In the polygraph test, Pilar was asked some pretty intrusive questions including:
“Other than Deion during your marriage have you touched your v*g*n* to an other person?”
“Other than Deion during your marriage have you touched your mouth to an other man’s p*n*s?”
“Other than Deion during your marriage have you had sexual contact with an other person?”
To all of these questions Pilar replied “No”. The test results concluded that Pilar was telling the truth; however, I’m pretty sure there will still be some skeptics. In addition to the polygraph results, Pilar’s publicist Kali Bowyer also released a statement addressing accusations that Pilar cheated on Deion.
“This is a feeble attempt to discredit Pilar and/or anyone who even remotely takes her side or comes to her defense. It is obviously a desperate attempt to take the focus off Deion and the abuse my client endured throughout her marriage.”
“These attempts to defame and slander are just not something Pilar, nor our team will tolerate,” Bowyer went on to say before stating that the only unfaithful party in their marriage was Deion, who was actually accused of sleeping with a teenaged girl; however the validity of those accusations have yet to be proven.
I think it’s pretty horrible that things have come to this considering the two have been married for so long. Hopefully both Deion and Pilar will put an end to this drama soon and move on with their lives.

He Tried To Kill Me: Pilar Sanders Exposes Details Regarding Alleged Abuse and Releases Domestic Violence Photos
Things have been getting extremely ugly between retired NFL star, Deion Sanders and his estranged wife, Pilar as their bitter divorce has not only left them fighting over their $250 million estate, but also custody of their three children. Last week, we reported that Pilar lost custody of their two sons and that she vowed to stop at nothing to get her boys back.
Since the couple’s huge blowout last year, both Deion and Pilar have made heavy accusations against one another. These accusations have ranged from mental and emotional abuse to infidelity. In an exclusive interview with Mara of Cherry Martinez’s Cherry On Top, Pilar addresses those allegations and more. Check out some of the interview’s highlights.
On Deion being abusive and domestic violence being common in NFL households:
Most recently, every picture on the web would show that my arm was broken and he busted my thumb in attempts to knock me out, kill me, yeah. And maybe, perhaps, people will believe it more so now, that, unfortunately, they were seeing this season. The very drastic increase of athletes, football players who snap, and unfortunately, take their lives and other people’s lives with them. It’s not that far off, it’s not uncommon among athletes. It’s very, very, very not uncommon when you speak with other NFL wives, football wives, athletes’ wives.
On being accused of “jumping” Deion with her friend:
You know what, I’m 129 pounds, okay. He has been trained all his life to play baseball and to attack people. Football, you’re running, you’re grabbing; it’s a very violent sport. What kind of sense would it make for me at 5’9?, 129 pounds to attack someone his size? That just doesn’t make sense. And for what? No, not at all.
On those alleged $10,500 child support checks she was receiving:
I was never, ever, ever once paid child support, at all. Never once. And I’ve seen his statement saying “and I have the canceled checks to prove it,” but he never showed it, now did he? He never showed you one of his canceled checks of child support that he’s paid, did he? Absolutely not, and he won’t because he hasn’t.
On her arrest being plotted by Deion and the Collin County Police:
When the police arrived to my home, they saw blood all over me, all over our floor, they saw blood and matter, just meat hanging from my hand. They removed me, they forced myself and my friend out of the home. That was wrong right there. So on so many counts, the police didn’t follow what they were suppose to do, but it was all planned. They had been there earlier that day, talked about it. I mean there is a tape where you can hear Deion telling the police these things.”
A person with any type of intellect or basic common sense would realize how low and desperate it looks to demean and verbally abuse your wife and mother of your three children of whom she has been raising period! If spending 14years of sharing your life building a family, creating and managing our family brand and business’ means I was “digging for Gold” then I guess that would make us both diggers wouldn’t it? Any digging done was us breaking ground together on our marital property in Prosper, Tx. And perhaps most recently by Mr. Deion Sanders reaching and grabbing for any kind of sheet or wool to pull over the media’s eyes,
It is unfortunate when a marriage goes south and parents begin squabbling over children. In Pilar Sanders’s case, it is very unfortunate since she seems to be the one losing these days.
New York Post’s Page Six is reporting that in a recent hearing, a Dallas judge ruled in favor of NFL Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, revoking the temporary custody that his estranged wife Pilar had been granted for their two sons. The boys were reported to have been living with their father anyway. Pilar was however, able to retain custody of their daughter.
In addition to losing custody of her sons, the judge also decreased Pilar’s child support checks from $10,500 to $5,500 a month. Pilar of course, was not happy with this ruling and like many women who find themselves in ugly custody disputes with rich and famous men, she’s calling it an unfair fight because of Deion’s fame. Pilar’s publicist Kali Bowyer released a statement discussing this matter on behalf of her client:
“Pilar has become a victim of Deion’s celebrity status, which has swayed the courts and blinded justice . . . It has become evident at this point that there is an absolute prejudice against Pilar, and this has become a completely one-sided court circus.” “
The actress and model also openly expressed her feelings regarding the nasty custody battle she has found herself in.
“I am sad that Deion has been able to keep my boys away from me since Oct. 26 — no Halloween, no Thanksgiving — and now he is threatening to keep them away from me for Christmas. . . . He is using our innocent children as a pawn in this ugly, ugly divorce.”
She promises that she will continue to fight for the custody of her children and took to her Twitter page yesterday to express her dissatisfaction with the ruling. “Who protects mother and child?” she tweeted.
We agree that it is generally in the best interest of children to have both parents in their lives. We hope these two can come to an amicable agreement for the sake of their kids.
In this case, do you believe Pilar is a victim of Deion’s fame or is she just upset that the ruling wasn’t in her favor?
Rhea Pearlman and Danny DeVito
Rhea and Danny are like Hollywood staples. The couple met in 1971, moved in together two weeks later, and, oddly, didn’t marry for another 10 years in 1982. Still, they’ve got 40 years under their belt which is why news that the two were divorcing in October hit fans so hard. The good news is as of earlier this month, Danny told Extra the pair is still working on their marriage and that they’re “still together – just separate, but together.”
You can always count on Howard Stern to get the nitty gritty details out of folks. In last Tuesday’s interview with the shock jock, Nick opened up about many things from practicing celibacy during his relationship with now wife Mariah Carey prior to them saying “I do,” as well as his TMI moment when he revealed that he gets off to Mariah’s music when she’s away. The Examiner is reporting that Nick also revealed why he broke up with Kim Kardashian back in the day. If you recall, the two dated back in 2006 just before her sex tape with Ray J hit the net. He says their break up was actually linked to the tape.
“This was my issue,” said Cannon. “We talked about this tape…And she told me there was no tape. If she might have been honest with me I might have tried to hold her down and be like ‘That was before me’ because she is a great girl. She’s actually one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. But the fact that she lied and told me that there was no tape?
Nick also revealed that he believes she may have had a hand in the tape getting leaked in the first place.
“And I still think she might have even had a part to play with it,” he added.
When Howard referred to Kim as the “world’s most famous p*rn star” due to the common idea that Kim’s sex tape is what ultimately launched her reality television career Nick responded:
“I think she’s a great businesswoman if you ask me.”
We can totally respect Nick’s reasoning. The past is the past, but you begin to blatantly lie to your partner, and things generally begin to go south. There’s no use crying over spilled milk though. It seems that both Nick and Kim have moved on since then and are both in loving relationships.
What do you think of Nick’s revelation?
Some Hollywood couples seem to thrive in a media spotlight, but for these couples, being in the public eye seemed to do them more harm than good. In fact, being in the public eye was completely disastrous for them. Not only did they have to deal with whatever drama they were dealing with, they had to do it with constant public speculation and criticism. In some cases, these couples learned their lessons, but in other cases, they didn’t learn a damn thing! Either way, here are 10 couples that publicly fell apart.
Usher and Tameka Raymond
This is probably one of the most public custody battles we’ve seen from any divorced celebrity couple in recent times. To make matters worse, in the midst of the intense battle, Tameka lost her son in a Jet-Ski accident that took the 11-year-old’s life. Despite mourning her son she then had to continue the awful custody battle, only to lose primary custody in the end.
