Brangelina’s jaw-dropping divorce caught everyone by surprise. But they’re not the first celebrity couple whose split got nasty. Here are the 11 nastiest divorces ever!
No one ever expected Brad Pitt, 52, and Angelina Jolie, 41, to get divorced, and no one expected their divorce to get as nasty as it has gotten so quickly. Angelina was the one to pull the plug on the relationship by filing for divorce on Sept. 19. She asked for sole physical custody of their six children and joint legal custody. Brad was also investigated for alleged child abuse. Just when you think their divorce is headed in a good direction, the split takes another turn for the worse.
Before Brangelina’s divorce, there was Kim Kardashian, 35, and Kris Humphries’ nasty split. Kim and Kris married in a TV wedding in Aug. 2011, but their bliss was short-lived. Kim filed for divorce after 72 days of marriage. And that’s when things started to get really crazy. Kris, 31, responded to Kim’s petition and requested an annulment on the grounds of fraud. They went through a long legal battle, with their divorce finally reaching a settlement in June 2013!
Brangelina’s divorce overshadowed the nastiest divorce of summer 2016: Amber Heard, 30, and Johnny Depp’s divorce. Amber filed for divorce in May 2016, and only a few days later she alleged that Johnny, 53, had hit her. She claimed that Johnny had allegedly been “verbally and physically abusive” throughout their marriage. After a roller coaster few months of nasty back-and-forth between the two, their divorce was settled in Aug. 2016 with Amber receiving $7 million.
Other nasty Hollywood divorces include Katy Perry, 31, and Russell Brand, 41, Nicole Kidman, 49, and Tom Cruise, 54, Britney Spears, 34, and Kevin Federline, 38, and more! Check out the rest of the divorces that shocked the world in our gallery!
