Celebrities break up all the time. But some are less willing to let go and move on than others. These 15 famous folks– with their childish name calling, trivial lawsuits and stuck-in-the-past mentalities – fit into this category perfectly.
Usher and Tameka
Thinking back on the devolution of this relationship, it’s hard to tell who was the more scorned of the two. Both Tameka and Usher went hard during their divorce and child custody proceedings, digging up dirt, making wild accusations and tearing each other apart limb by limb. Usher accused Tameka of having a “revolving door” of nannies watching their children, and Tameka suggested not too politely that Usher was a pill popping addict who slept with her bridesmaids. Their intense legal mudslinging lasted right on up to the judge’s final rulings and beyond with subsequent appeals.
Unlike those celebrities who are allergic to being single and boo up with the first man they can find, these women seem to genuinely just want love with their true soul mates. They want the prince charming. The fairy tale. The happy ending. But sadly, they just haven’t gotten it. These are the women whose relationship success we’re rooting for, because God knows they’re trying hard enough for it.
There’s no worse feeling than betrayal, and after discovering that her husband of nine years had been having an affair with “some sl*t in Chicago,” as she called her, for five of those said years, Garcelle had to be feeling pretty crappy. And considering that this was her second marriage (her first ended no better), I’m sure that didn’t make things any easier either.
‘I Want To Stand Alone. I’m Pretty Successful In My Own Right.’ David Otunga Talks Being Overshadowed By JHud
One can only imagine how difficult it is being the significant other of a celebrity as widely known as Jennifer Hudson, especially if that partner has a desire to establish a name for themselves in the spotlight. David Otunga, WWE personality and fiancé to songstress J.Hud recently opened up to the Chicago Tribune about that very subject, while promoting his new movie The Call. The Harvard Law graduate expressed that it is rather challenging living in his famous fiancé’s shadow and that he even had to fight for his own identity as a WWE wrestler because the organization wanted to build his character around Hudson’s celebrity status.
“It’s one of those things they kept bringing up no matter how many times I said, ‘Please don’t mention (Hudson). They kept doing it and it irritated me to the point that I changed my [WWE] character. That’s why I started a new character with a bow tie and coffee mug,’ the lawyer turned reality star said.
“I want to stand alone. I’m pretty successful in my own right. (Jennifer Hudson) still comes up, but what can I do?”
Otunga is also known for his role on VH1 reality show, I Love New York, which he starred in as one of the many men competing for the heart of Tiffany Pollard aka New York. He went on to say that people are really beginning to take notice of him and are seeking to learn more about him.
“People want to know more about me. They want to know who I am. It’s cool to finally have that attention. … That’s something I tried to do from the beginning — to be my own person. I wanted to do different things and try to establish myself. It’s great to get recognized for that.”
Well, I guess you have to respect his honesty.
What do you think of David publicly expressing his desire to step out of Jennifer’s shadow?
Nowadays, Hollywood reports, at least the one’s that get the most hits, are those about celebrity divorces and celebrity relationships that have ended. Even though it’s not often that Hollywood and happily-ever-after are combined, it does and has happened for some celebs, despite the fact that these couples fell in love during that puppy love stage. Here are 15 celebrities who married their high school or college sweetheart.
Paula Patton & Robin Thicke
During their high school years, Paula Patton and Robin Thicke met at a teen night club. In 1993, the same year they met, despite the criticism they received about their interracial relationship, decided to start dating and did so even as the two went off to college. About 12 years later, the couple said “I do” and in 2010 they had their first son together.
As we all know, Hollywood is a land full of paparazzi. With cameras everywhere and privacy a thing of yesterday, rarely are there celebs who are able to truly enjoy one of the most important days of their lives: their wedding. However, there have been some Hollywood stars who have been able to slip under the radar and quietly get married. Here are 15 secret celebrity weddings that we didn’t know about until after the fact.
Amare Stoudemire & Alexis Welch
New York Knicks star Amare Stoudemire and Alexis Welch finally got married on 12/12/12, after having three children together and another on the way this year. The couple took advantage of the unique date and got married at their NYC apartment roof deck. Sticking to the special number 12, the wedding was attended by 12 special guests.
Love and relationships are crazy things. Sometimes relationships fail, but that definitely doesn’t mean that the love is gone. In fact, there are plenty of Hollywood A-listers who have broken up with a significant other and tried another shot at their relationship, in some cases even after being divorced. A few even married again and suffered the same fate twice. Here are 14 of those pairs.
We Wish We Could Be Happy But…15 Men Who Crushed Us When We Found Out They Were In Relationships/Married
Why is it that we sometimes feel a connection to celebrities that we don’t know personally? We’re happy for their accomplishments, cry when they pass away, are supportive of them through hard times, consider them our – as Wendy Williams likes to put it – “best friends in our heads,” and even sulk when we find out that they’re no longer single – though our chances of realistically being with them are slim to none. I know I’m guilty of this – especially that last one. So I figured I’d spotlight 15 men who we were crushed to find out had been boo’d up. Click through and relive the pain with me.
Boris Kodjoe. The number of hearts he broke when he married Nicole Ari Parker in 2005 could be considered criminal. Why, we wondered, would such a fine piece of man lock himself down before we had our chance at him?! But I believe we’ve all come to our senses, and maybe even love the family man and his lady as a couple more now than ever before.
Hollywood relationships between two celebrities are all but expected nowadays, but there have been some celebrity hook ups that shocked us all. From a mismatched couple to a relationship that was so quick no one knew or talked much of it, there have definitely been some celebrity relationships that no one saw coming. Here are 15 of those.
Kathy Griffin & Jack Black
Jokesters Kathy Griffin and Jack Black had a brief fling together, but can you image all of the laughs these two had? Nowadays Kathy is dating Randy Bick, a guy 17 years younger. On the other hand, Jack Black is now married to Tanya Haden.
I am sick and tired of the amount of shade given to current and former wives of certain celebrity men. Somehow, I’ve grown accustomed to hearing harsh comments and questions about why certain men decided to be with certain women. While I know some of us believe every woman is beautiful in their own way, there are others that do not subscribe to this notion. I used to think trashing others was a female thing. But now, more and more men are jumping on the cattiness bandwagon too. I really wish more of us would make use of the old adage “if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.” But since we don’t live in a perfect world and people will continue to vocalize their opinions, however hurtful or unnecessary they may be, let’s take a look at a few wives of celebrities who have been on the receiving end of some unnecessary criticism for their looks.
Though it’s a rare instance, some couples in Hollywood really have a fair shot. On the other hand, there are some twosomes you look at in think, you all know better. It’s tough to survive as a Hollywood couple even with two good heads on your shoulders, so when some shady characters get together you immediately know they don’t have a chance from day one. We hate to say I told you so, but when it comes to these pairs, everyone could have told them so.
