Celebrities who treat their significant others like trash Getty Images Mariel Loveland Love isn't easy, but it's a whole lot harder when your significant other treats you like utter trash. Though Hollywood relationships are notoriously short-lived blame the pressures of fame and red carpet-worthy egos, some stars are undeniably terrible partners.
From Gwyneth Paltrow, who's totally willing to admit she's hard to date, to Chris Brown, who was put on probation for his disturbing crimes against Rihanna, the spectrum of inconsiderate partners is notably vast.
There are hundreds of ways to hurt the one you love — and even more if you've got money. Not every celebrity bad boy or girl stays that way, though. Some regretful partners actually do change. Take Adam Levine, for example, who allegedly apologized to his exes before settling down, or Justin Bieber, whose plea for forgiveness infected airwaves in Then there's John Mayer, who still seems sort of bitter about that one Taylor Swift song yeah, we're still waiting on the world to change , too.
If the bad press is true, these celebrities are notoriously inconsiderate partners that you wouldn't want to date. The pair met as teenagers at the Vibe Awards, and over the next few years, they grew from collaborators to best friends to totally in love. Unfortunately, not all was as rosy as it seemed from the red carpet. He was sentenced to five years probation and six months community labor, reported Billboard. He eventually did find love with model Karrueche Tran.
Unfortunately, old patterns appeared to resurface. News , Tran alleged Brown punched her in the stomach, pushed her down the stairs, and threatened to shoot her and kill her on numerous occasions. Sometimes, it appears that Depp isn't far off from the characters he portrays, at least when it comes to the drama surrounding his marriage to Amber Heard.
Depp and Heard met while filming The Rum Diary in and got engaged in Nine months after tying the knot, Heard asked for a temporary restraining order. TMZ published photos of her battered face — Heard claimed Depp smashed a phone into it, and that wasn't the only alleged incident. Then there was a leaked video of Depp apparently throwing a wine bottle and glass at his wife. Rowling , the billionaire author behind the Harry Potter franchise.
Whatever really happened between these two, Depp doesn't come out smelling like roses. Mariah Carey allegedly 'has issues' Getty Images Mariah Carey has certainly been through the ringer when it comes to love. Her early marriage to her label boss Tommy Mottola was allegedly so abusive that she had to get permission to leave the house.
Through it all, Nick Cannon seemed to be a solid support for the troubled singer. The pair split before tying the knot, with Carey's team claiming she wasn't happy with his behavior.
Packer's rep fired back, telling People , "Typical Mariah to just twist things that don't sound good to her. They split because she has issues. According to TMZ , he claimed she exposed herself to him and intentionally performed sexual acts while he was in view. Brad Pitt was 'boozing or had a spliff' every day Getty Images Brad Pitt has certainly had some tumultuous relationships, and if you asked his ex-wives, he seems to be the common denominator.
The new lovers claimed they took things to the next level only after his split with Aniston, though Pitt later said that the aforementioned movie is his favorite because it's where he " fell in love. Before his divorce from Aniston was finalized, Pitt posed for an epic W magazine photo shoot with Jolie. The piece, titled " Domestic Bliss ," cast the two "friends" as a sexy husband and wife with kids. Pitt told GQ that substance abuse was at the root of the "self-inflicted" collapse of his relationship with Jolie.
Though all that sounds awful trashy, Pitt has now reportedly embarked on a cleaner lifestyle. The Scottish DJ has a terrible track record when it comes to working with his significant others. His split with pop star Rita Ora seemed amicable, until Harris allegedly blindsided her by publicly announcing their breakup months after the fact — weird, but okay. Things got worse from there.
Ora had to cancel the performance because Harris owned the copyright. If Harris' experience with Ora didn't reach peak-level petty, the demise of his relationship with Taylor Swift certainly did.
As ill-fated as that tweetstorm was, Harris did eventually apologize. Whether it's totally warranted or not is up for debate the singer claims he hasn't dated a lot of people "in the last five, six years. The singer-songwriter famously humiliated Jessica Simpson by calling her "sexual napalm" in a Playboy interview via Us Weekly.
He later referred to his, um, little John yup, his penis as a "white supremacist" because he had never been with a person of color. Despite those poorly thought-out comments, Mayer somehow found himself in the arms of America's sweetheart — Taylor Swift. His relationship with the thenyear-old was short-lived, but his alleged breakup song will live on forever.
Swift penned a scathing track titled " Dear John ," and rumors swirled about Mayer being her manipulative muse. Mayer called the move "cheap songwriting" and said he was "humiliated. So, who occupies the moral high ground on this one? It's unclear, but one thing is clear: Mayer still hasn't let it go. Justin Bieber's sorry track record Getty Images Jalena is an inescapable force, even in Oh, how things went so wrong in a few long years it felt like a lifetime, did it not?
Bieber was reportedly not the best boyfriend to sweet Selena. After all, he allegedly penned the track " Sorry " about the " Good For You " songstress.
What does he have to be sorry for? Some highlights include that time he got into a fist fight with Orlando Bloom after allegedly hooking up with Bloom's ex-wife. This move seemed purely spiteful because Gomez was rumored to be canoodling with Bloom at the time. Though they've both dated other people, these two keep winding up together. In , after reportedly reuniting for the umteenth time, Gomez's mom, Mandy Teefey, admitted she was " not happy " about the rumored return of the Biebs.
Adam Levine owed a lot of ladies apologies Getty Images Adam Levine may have a voice that's sweet as sugar , but the way he's acted in past relationships is anything but. Lavine allegedly dumped his supermodel girlfriend Nina Agdal by completely ghosting her. According to Us Weekly , he stopped answering her calls, then eventually informed her of his engagement to on-off flame and fellow model Behati Prinsloo through a text message. Levine certainly has a way with words in his songs, but when it comes to real-life communication, that's apparently not the case.
What we don't remember are how those love stories played out. Amidst his growing dedication to Scientology in , Cruise abruptly filed for divorce from Kidman after 10 years of marriage.
Though Kidman admitted it was a " shock to [her] system ," she did quip to David Letterman , "At least I can wear heels now. Impossible commendable behavior, but apparently Cruise did it anyway. His relationship with Katie Holmes, which was long-rumored to be a contract marriage, may have been even more out of control. She allegedly wasn't allowed to utter a single peep while delivering Suri, and according to some reports , she feared for her safety after filing for divorce because of the church.
Of course, this is speculation at its finest, but it's certainly the kind of trash-talking that would make us wary of another Cruise wedding. Getty Images Gwyneth Paltrow has painted herself as a well-intentioned albeit sometimes clueless wealthy single mama. Nothing about her carefully-crafted image would lead us to believe she's a terrible romantic partner, but the actress admitted she has her flaws. Paltrow does at least make an effort to " consciously uncouple " rather than ghosting her flames, and that's probably why she remains in good-standing with most of her exes.
However, that doesn't mean dating the Oscar-winning actress is all roses. Rob Kardashian is the exception to the rule. Rob's relationship with Blac Chyna seems insanely tumultuous by tabloid accounts. In , after an exhausting year and a half of on-and-off dating, Chyna took to Snapchat to claim Rob beat her up.
Rob countered by posting several explicit photos of her online in what appeared to be some sort of deranged and potentially criminal hours-long social media rant. This incident was the final straw for Chyna, who filed a restraining order. Her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, had this to say in a statement: Kardashian, you are now on notice: Getty Images Actress Emma Roberts may look like an innocent girl next door, but that doesn't mean she isn't vicious when it comes to matters of the heart.
Rumor has it the actress physically abused her boyfriend, actor Evan Peters. For the first year or so of their relationship, they were the poster children for millennial power couples. Though Peters reportedly suffered a bloody nose and bite marks, he didn't press charges, and Roberts was released.
According to a totally real and not at all made-up source that spoke to OK! That is, if they're not screaming at each other," said the anonymous insider.
