What would you do if you found out your partner had been stepping out with not just one woman, but multiple? According to Shaunie O’Neal, she went ahead and tore up ex-husband Shaquille O’Neal’s property.
“Our Blackberries got switched,” she said, according to BET, during a recent episode of Basketball Wives. “I went to my baby’s play at school and I was like, ‘Damn, my phone is going off a lot.’ Just girl, after girl, after girl — like, ‘Baby, last night what you did.’ And I went in the arena and I went in that garage, not only did I flatten tires, bust a few windows, I wrote on the hood [of his car], ‘I cheat on my wife. I ain’t s–t,’ with a knife.”
One could say she overreacted, but I’m sure the ladies on this list would understand. While some are inspired by such heartbreak to make great music (i.e., Adele, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé), others just want to hurt their significant others as much as those individuals hurt them.

Arnold embarrassed the hell out of her ex-husband Rico Hines after he embarrassed himself. After finding out he cheated, she sent a mass text to friends and family with a video of him having sex with another woman, or as she put it, sleeping with “ONE of his MANY extraneous whores that trick on him for his money.” The initial text read, “It’s over between Rico and I. This is where I part ways and all bets are off.” She was not kidding.

“The door comes open and as soon as the door came open I kicked it just so I could get in,” she said. “I wasn’t sure if they were going to have the latch on. I see some chick standing there, you know, fully dressed like she had on a Catholic uniform. I mean, she obviously wasn’t a kid, but she had on a pleated miniskirt. I see him sitting over there . . . all of this was in a split second. As soon as I kicked in the door and saw her I just started to *punches fist*”
“I don’t even know if she got a chance to say anything and I just looked over at him as I’m still hitting her,” Evans continued. “He’s sitting there like, ‘Wow Faye. Why are you doing that to her? I didn’t even f–k her.’ I was like, ‘Well you shoulda . . . ’cause you see what happened to her.'”

The comedian said she retaliated against her man in a pretty interesting, albeit gross, way.
“He didn’t have no car, so I couldn’t slash his tires,” she said. “He didn’t really have no nice clothes, so I couldn’t throw bleach on them. What he did have was a pair of brand new Jordans. So I pooped in them, ’cause he put me through a lot of defecation, so I defecated in his shoes.”
One half of Mary Mary, Tina Campbell admitted on the sisters’ We TV reality show that after she found out her husband Teddy cheated “countless” times, she tore up his car.

“Hello ladies, this is elaina Victor cruz’s fiancée,” the message reportedly read. “You all know about me and I seem to be the topic of conversations with vic.

Beyoncé would eventually get to let her anger out on 2016’s epic album, Lemonade.
