10 celebrities describe their most horrible breakups
The scandalous footage of Tristan Thompson cheating on Khloé Kardashian couldn't have come at a worse time. In the same week that she was preparing to give birth to her precious bébé (which she just has, yay!), news broke that her boyfriend and the father of her child had been cheating on her. I mean, it's in times like that that she needed to rely on his support rather than thinking about breaking up with him.
While nothing official has been said from the family about the situation, you've got to wonder what will happen with the new parents moving forward. Unfortunately, Khloé isn't the only one who has gone through heartache so publicly. While we all feel a bit of secondhand heartache when our favourite celebrity couples split, it's so much worse for them, as these 10 celebs have revealed.
1. Ariana Grande on her text message breakup
"The worst way I've been broken up with would probably be over a text message the opening night of my tour right before I was about to go on stage," she revealed to Complex.
2. Emma Stone on her very first big breakup
"I was crawling on the floor. I remember throwing up. I remember being on the floor... I have never felt anything quite like that. It was so visceral. It's like someone has killed you and you have to live through it and watch it happen. It was awful," she told Interview Magazine.
3. Katy Perry on Russell Brand's divorce text
"He's a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him. Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011," said Katy, according to Gossip Cop.
4. Ryan Phillippe on his divorce from Reese Witherspoon
"[Divorce was] the darkest, saddest place I had ever been," he told W. "It was a struggle — there were a good four or five months of not being able to get out of bed. It was the worst time in my life. You get through it. It's a process that's not easy, but I get less and less sad about it every day."
5. Jennifer Aniston on Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie getting together right after her and Brad's divorce
"Is it odd timing? Yeah. But it's not my life," she told Vanity Fair. "He makes his choices. He can do — whatever. We're divorced, and you can see why."
6. Taylor Swift about her over-the-phone breakup with Joe Jonas
"We haven't talked since actually so it's like yeah. But you know what? Someday I'm going to find someone really, really great who's right for me," she told Ellen DeGeneres
"You know what? It's like when I find that person that is right for me, he'll be wonderful and when I look at that person I'm not even going to be able to remember the boy who broke up on the phone with me in 25 seconds when I was 18. Sorry, I had to. Yeah, it was like a record for how quick. I looked at the call log — it was like 27 seconds. That's got to be a record!"
7. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
"We were working out how to be in a relationship, how to be ourselves, who we were, in the middle of having people judge our relationship through the media. I think that really messed my head up too. Because then, it's like trust and all this other stuff that starts messing with your mind. You're on the road. And there are beautiful women on the road. And you're just getting yourself into trouble," Justin confessed to i-D.
Selena said in a separate interview to W: "I'm so exhausted. I honestly am so done. I care about his health and well-being. But I can't do it anymore."
8. Kate Moss on Johnny Depp
"There's nobody that's ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit," she revealed to Vanity Fair. "I believed what he said. Like if I said, 'What do I do?,' he'd tell me. And that's what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!"
9. Rita Ora on Calvin Harris unknowingly announcing their breakup over Twitter
A source told The Sun that she didn't know: "Rita was left embarrassed when he tweeted that it was all over. She didn't think he was going to make the announcement, so she was shocked."
Rita told Wonderland magazine: "At the time, I just wanted to crawl in my bed and die. But I got out of it the other side, I'm surviving."
10. Miley Cyrus on her breakup with fiancée Liam Hemsworth
"I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year," she told Barbara Walters.
Well, as the last case proved, breakups can be healthy for a person too. Spending some time alone to focus on improving yourself instead of wallowing in your heartbreak is so much more worthwhile, and as it turns out, it was exactly what Miley and Liam needed to rekindle their love.
