With the Brad-Angelina Split news on media, everyone looks so upset, and it seems like they want me out of the shock. I know we loved the Troy star and A-lister Angelina together. I mean, they lived together for more than 12 years, and now it has come to their divorce when they have only been wed for just two years. Our grievances aside, let’s look into the matter.
On the 15th of September, Oscar Winner Angelina filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, stating irreconcilable differences (we are waiting for details, of course) and asking for full custody of the six kids with visitation rights given to Brad Pitt. The sad news brought tears to many Brangelina fans, and much more of Jennifer Aniston’s fans called it ‘karma’s doing.
It has happened before. Here’s an account of the most shocking celebrity divorces of all time. Most of the divorces listed here came as a surprise and shocked most of us. We didn’t expect these rock-solid couples to get separated, yet they did.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
They have been married for more than ten years, and now the beautiful couple has announced their separation. They have three children together. They announced their divorce in June 2015, and this break-up came as a huge surprise. Rumors of trouble between these two made headlines on the front pages, and one day they just revealed it in a joint statement saying, “We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this sad time.” That was just too sad for all their fans.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston
This couple was so happy and so cute together as compared to many other celebrity couples. It seemed that they would grow old together, but then Angelina Joli e came along. And then this golden couple of the early 2000s got divorced. They were in a relationship for seven years and were married for four years. But when Pitt got closer to co-star Angelina, Jennifer filed for divorce, and this happy couple got divorced in January 2005.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
In June 2012, the beautiful Katie Holmes filed for divorce after marrying Tom Cruise for more than five years. They have a daughter Suri together. Holmes stated that her marriage to Cruise was irretrievably broken for more than six months before considering filing for divorce. It was settled and finalized within two months.
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
Nobody could deny how happy this couple seemed together. Everything was so perfect about them, and they even had their twins. But then the sad moment came when in July 2011, they announced their split, and everyone so grieved, mainly because they had performed together on American Idol months earlier. It was the split of a seven years marriage.
Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom
Apparently, everyone was shocked at the news of the split between Victoria’s Secret’s top model Miranda Kerr and actor Orlando Bloom. This story struck us in October 2013 when we all thought the couple would last forever. They had been married for over three years and had a son Flynn. Oh, they were so adorable together. A reporter once asked Orlando if he was friends with his ex, and he replied: “We’re not friends; we’re family!”
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
We weren’t sad about this divorce because the marriage lasted just 72 days. Yeah, so you have an idea that there wasn’t any real bonding in the first place. It shocked us because everything about this couple was featured on the TV show ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’; the marriage, the honeymoon, and whatnot. It was reported that the newlyweds had problems with living arrangements. Kris used to split his time between Miami and Minnesota while Kimmy lived in Los Angeles. They simply lived where their work required.
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher
In November 2011, Demi filed for divorce, stating, “As a woman, a mother, and a wife, there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life.” Yes, cheating rumors were surrounding their marriage. They unfollowed each other on Twitter, and Moore later changed her username from @MrsKutcher to @justdemi. Their marriage lasted six years, and it ended when Demi learned that Ashton slept with a random 22-year-old girl on their sixth wedding anniversary. Demi was 15 years senior to Ashton, but they did look nice together. We hope that in the case of Angelina and Brad, things get better because we really can’t see them apart as they are the perfect couple!
