A bad breakup can be rough, but it gives us the opportunity to find a new and better love. We all aspire to move on to bigger and better things once the dust settles and these stars were able to do just that. Check out 10 celeb women who upgraded to bigger and better after a big breakup.

Monica Brown

Monica and rapper Rocko ended things in 2010 after 11 years together amid rumors of his infidelity. In June of that same year, she found love again with NBA star Shannon Brown after he was asked to play her love interest in the “Love All Over Me” video. The two married in November of 2010 and in 2013 they welcomed a daughter named Laiyah. They will celebrate five years of marriage this November.


Ciara went through a very public and ugly breakup with Future last year. He has been very vocal about their past relationship and why it didn’t work out. But as for Ciara, she has kept it classy and moved onto bigger and better things with NFL quarterback, Russell Wilson.

Janet Jackson

While their nine-year relationship was shrouded in mystery (in true Jackson fashion), there were plenty of rumors about Jermaine Dupri cheating and the couple having a hard time mixing business with pleasure. She has since moved on and married Qatari business magnate and billionaire Wissam Al Mana. She looks happier than ever!


Rapper and actress Eve once dated the perpetually trifling Stevie J of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta fame. When asked about her past relationship with Stevie J, Eve said, “You meet people all the time. We just happened to fall in love. Umm, but thankfully I knew better, I know better, I am happily in love now. And the girl now, he couldn’t even see this. I would be like, ‘I’m sorry, we don’t speak the same language!'”

Eve is now married to successful businessman Maximillion Cooper.

Mariah Carey

After going through the motions during her divorce from Nick Cannon, Mariah Carey has bounced back with billionaire James Packer. Cannon wishes them well, and Carey is reportedly in great spirits thanks to her new romantic situation. Congrats, Mimi!

Nicki Minaj

While Meek Mill may have taken the biggest L of his life after Drake publicly humiliated in their entertaining beef, he is still an upgrade from Minaj’s previous beau, rapper Safaree Samuels. After ending their long-term relationship, the defunct pair had some squabbles that played out on social media. But Minaj has since moved on, and according to her, she is very pleased with her new rapper beau, Meek Mill.

Zoe Saldana

After an on-again, off-again relationship with actor Bradley Cooper finally ended in 2013, Saldana found the love of her life in artist Marco Perego. The two welcomed twins in November of last year. And Perego is so in love with his lady that he’s taken her last name.

Kim Kardashian

With a few bad relationships (and marriages) under her belt, Kim Kardashian seems to have found the right kind of love with Kanye West. The two married last year and are expecting their second child later this year.

Halle Berry

Relationship turmoil has followed Halle Berry for years. And she’s had to deal with a bitter child custody battle and monetary drama thanks to her ex, Gabriel Aubry. While the dust has finally settled when it comes to their court battles, Berry has romantically moved on to actor Oliver Martinez, whom she married in 2013. The two welcomed their son, Maceo, last year.

Meagan Good

Meagan Good had to kiss a few frogs before she found her prince. She even dated Soulja Boy briefly! Girl, why? Anyway, Good has upgraded her love life big time and is in her third year of marriage to successful film producer and preacher DeVon Franklin.
