And just like that, in the blink of an eye, we are approaching not only a new year, but also a new decade.
Okay, so it didn’t happen out of the blue. Still, these last 10 years certainly feel like they zipped by in a blur, and because of that, a lot of the big news stories centered around the stars that we couldn’t stop talking about at one point, we definitely forgot about or put out of our mind. But what better way to look back at the years that have come and gone as we approach 2020 than to be reminded of the drama that came and went? Check out a few of the biggest scandals of the decade, including a few recent hot messes and some vintage drama.
The “Break” Baby Year
In 2013, NBA star Dwyane Wade and rapper Ludacris found themselves in an eerily similar situation that caused quite the conversation. Both men, though known for their high-profile relationships, had managed to father children outside of them, Wade with Aja Metoyer and Luda with Tamika Fuller. The excuse? Both couples were allegedly on a break to work on issues, so it wasn’t really cheating. Despite their behavior, both men were forgiven by their partners and went on soon after to marry them, regardless of what the public thought about it.
As for the children conceived, Luda actually obtained full custody of his daughter Cai after an ugly child support battle with Fuller. Though Wade hasn’t posted much of son Xavier on social media, the child has been spotted at a few public events with his dad, including Wade’s final game in Miami before his retirement this year.
