The only difference between celeb couples and everyday couples is the public’s eyes prying in on every obstacle these lovebirds face. Imagine waking up one day and seeing on the front page of every magazine that you and your man have officially split up, or one of you were caught red-handed slipping between the sheets with another. Its an everyday battle for celeb couples, but like most duos in love, letting go even after crazy turmoil, like infidelity, abuse and so called ‘irreconcilable’ differences, can still be tough. Breaking up to eventually make up seems to be the game to play nowadays. It’s like a media-broadcasted break-up serves as a relationship remedy aka counseling because in no time you see the same couples back in the club or out on the beach in full force cuddle mode. Here are 9 celeb couples who take the cake when it comes to splits that don’t last.

Kobe and Vanessa Bryant

This NBA star with enough championship rings to start a collection has had his share of broadcasted ups and downs with his wife Vanessa. His marriage first hit some rocky roads when he admitted to infidelities after being charged of sexually assaulting a woman in Colorado in 2003. Although the young woman eventually dropped the charges, and Kobe copped a $4 million make-up ring, Vanessa filed for divorce in December 2011. Even with the legal step forward to end the 10-year marriage, Vanessa could be seen cheering him on at his games, and even going back to the locker rooms decked out in heels and a fur to ‘support’ her ‘soon to be ex’. Anyway, the ‘ex’ can be chopped off now because they have both recently used their social networks to announce a reconciliation, and a bright future ahead.


Nene and Greg Leakes

“I don’t keep up with the Joneses, I am the Joneses’ is the signature quote from our favorite RHOA wife Nene Leakes. And who can keep up with her and her ex-husband/boo/lover/fiance Greg. The two seemed to be going through some rough patches in season 3 of RHOA, and the arguments and tears must not have just been for ratings because on April 29,2010 she filed for divorce due to Greg’s “wandering eye,” and by september 29, 2011 the divorce was finalized. Yet, ever since then the two have seemed to become more inseperable then they were before the divorce. Often out with one anohter, spending the night at one another’s place and even vacationing together recently amongst the rest of the RHOA wives and their hubbies. To top it all off, Greg has been working extra hard to win back the heart of his woman succceeding with a proposal on new years eve! What better way to bring in the new year than with the man of your dreams/reality.

Megan Fox and Brian Greenenick

This “Transformers” sex symbol, and 90210 heart throb first met when guest starring on the sitcom “Hop and Faith.” Since then the two, despite a 12-year age difference, have come a long way. Its hard being two Hot, famous, hard-working people, actually wanting to make the next steps to ensure a healthy relationship. Although the pair had some barriers to break through after their brief break-up in early 2009, they managed to get it back together and reconciled later that same year. Now after wedding in sultry Hawaii, they are expecting the arrival of their first child together. Age ain’t nothing but a number for these two.


Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo

Although I’ll forever be a fan of Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson, my fav couple even after their reality show, the two have found love in other places now. Nick and Vanessa have had a long relationship, going public as a couple after the split between him and Jessica in 2006. The two have shared many publicized moments of affection from TRL to paparazzi flicks. Although the two have had an off and on again relationship, their chemistry always remained strong even after a split in 2009, which was explained as amicable. Now the two look forward to a future together as a married couple and parents to one son.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

This couple reportedly started dating in early 2007, and brought swexy back literally. Not only do Justin and Jessica both have banging bodies, but they compliment each other so well. Although by 2009, rumors that they had split were surfacing, the duo tried to keep their relationship (and its up and downs) their business. They did publicly admit to a mutual split deciding “it was time to move on” March 2011. Even after this so called “mutual split” the two were still seen together at mutual friend’s get togethers, bike riding and jogging, and then engaged. This time last year Justin popped the question and Jessica accepted, now they’re happy newlyweds still looking better than ever: Together!

Selena Gomez and Justin Beiber

These two youngsters stole our hearts from before their teen years and now their stealing each others — but they just can’t seem to keep it pocketed. Lets keep it real, the two break up and get back together quicker than you can belt out the chorus to one of their songs, but when your young, rich and beautiful, you can afford to do that.

Pink and Carey Hart

Both the talented tattoo-covered Pink and her motocross racing hubby Carey may have some tough exteriors but they’re softies when it comes to one another.They began dating after they met at the 2001 X Games, and four years later Pink took the initiative and proposed to her beau. They married in 2006, and even though they announced a separation in 2008, Pink continued to offer a great deal of support after the death of Carey’s brother. Out of everything bad comes good, because in 2009, the couple started back dating, went to marriage counseling, got back together, and made the joyous announcement that they were expecting their first child by November 2010. Tough girls can have fairy tale endings too.

Lewis Hamilton and Nicole Scherzinger

By far one of the sexiest women in the world, this ex-pussycat doll has made a name for herself in the music world and in the life of her on-and-off-again boyfriend Hamilton. The Hot duo started their steamy love affair in 2008, and there’s been speculations, rumors and break-ups ever since than. Only a year later sources would say that the couple split due to the F1 Racing Driver not being ready to settle down and start a family, but this would later be denied by Hamilton. Since then, they have been rumored to suffer other splits due to conflicting work schedules.  Yet since her being voted off from X Factor, the two have been seen blissfully hand in hand.

Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola

Our favorite couple on the Jersey shore, it beats me how you can make a relationship work when you’ve constantly got cameras around. Not to mention there’s partying, drinking, sex, and hook-ups going on all around you. Yet the two became an item during the first season of the show and ever since then the young love birds have had volatile splits, arguments and gotten back together faster than a Jersey girl can pump her fist. With Twitter statements such as “Single Ronnie”, unfriending and unfollowing, then being caught smooching a few weeks later, it’s apparent these two need to grow up a little more before they try to make it work for real instead of for the billionth time.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick

The Kardashian family has never been too fond of boyfriend/baby daddy Scott Discick yet Kourtney must really be head over heels because no matter how crazy the slicked hair, flashy suit wearing party boy behaves they never seem to call it quits altogether. When first pregnant with son Mason Dash Disick , Kourtney often questioned staying with Scott even after the birth of their child but obviously sticking together has been the final decision since they welcomed another new edition to the family in 2012, daughter, Penelope Scotland Disick.
