In some cases, things can be privately and peacefully sorted out and finalized in a reasonable amount of time. But in other cases, it can be a long uphill journey to freedom, especially if you’re a celebrity with a lot on the line. Need an example? Here are 10 celebrity couples who split a while ago, but on paper, are still very much married.

Keyshia Cole and Daniel “Boobie” Gibson

It’s been years. Keyshia Cole and Daniel “Boobie” Gibson were married in 2011, but have been separated since 2014 following claims of infidelity on Gibson’s part. However, real progress towards legally ending their marriage hasn’t happened since 2017. The two were recently ordered to show up for a hearing next spring to deal with the divorce once and for all or deal with a fine. Meanwhile, Cole has been dating boyfriend Niko Hale since 2017 and they just welcomed their first child together.
