10+ Celebrities On Their Worst Breakups Ever

Breakups suck.

You probably already know that from the heartache and the pain of seeing your ex with someone new.

As elite as they are, celebs aren't immune to heartbreak. Theirs are even much worse. Did the world have a front-row seat to your ex breaking up with you via Twitter?

Didn't think so. Here, 10+ celebs share their worst breakups.

1. Katy Perry

There's no love lost between the singer and her ex-husband, Russell Brand.

That's because the comedian ended their marriage in a text message (!!!). A breakup is one thing, but a divorce? Yikes. She eventually spoke about this in 2013.

"He didn't like the atmosphere of me being the boss on tour. So that was really hurtful, and it was very controlling, which was upsetting," she told *Vogue*.

She also revealed that she found out the "real truth" of why things ended.

"I can't necessarily disclose because I keep it locked in my safe for a rainy day."

2. Perrie Edwards

The Little Mix's breakup from Zayn Malik was truly rough.

In addition to the former One Direction star ending their engagement via text, she was also left homeless.

"It was horrible, the worst time in my life," she wrote in the group's memoir.

3. Selena Gomez

After being in and out of each other's lives so much over the years, Selena and Justin Bieber two finally called it quits for good in 2015.

A lot of this had to do with Justin's cheating rumors.

He even admitted to some of them to *i-d* magazine when he talked about getting into trouble with beautiful girls on the road.

Selena shared her thoughts to W magazine in February 2016.

"I'm so exhausted. I honestly am so done. I care about his health and well-being. But I can't do it anymore."

4. Minnie Driver

Imagine finding out that your boyfriend dumped you... on television.

This is what happened to the actress when, after a year of dating, Matt Damon went on Oprah and said that he was single. That's gotta hurt.

She shared how "inappropriate" this breakup was to the *Los Angeles Times*.

"It seemed like a good forum for him to announce to the world that we were no longer together, which I found fantastically inappropriate," she said.

She added that he had declared his love for her on David Letterman just a month earlier.

5. Cazzie David

In case you don't know who she is, she's an actress, writer, and the daughter of Larry David.

She was also known for dating SNL's Pete Davidson. But that ended badly when Pete broke up with her via text and then started dating Ariana Grande the next day.

6. Laura Dern

Fun fact: the Jurassic Park star was once engaged to Billy Bob Thorton.

Not-so-fun fact: “I left our home to work on a movie, and while I was away, my boyfriend got married, and I’ve never heard from him again," she told Talk magazine.

That other woman was Angelina Jolie. She and Billy Bob had quite the whirlwind marriage for a few years.

“It’s like a sudden death. For no one has there been any closure or clarity," Dern shared about their breakup.

7. Rita Ora

After dating DJ Calvin Harris for several years, she found out that he had dumped her via Twitter.

She eventually spoke to Wonderland magazine about the breakup, saying how she wanted to "crawl in my bed and die."

8. Jennifer Aniston

Who could forget the Friends alum's infamous divorce from Brad Pitt? This happened after he fell in love with Angelina Jolie while filming Mr. And Mrs. Smith.

“There are many stages of grief,” she told Vanity Fair. “It’s sad, something coming to an end. It cracks you open, in a way—cracks you open to feeling."

9. Kiefer Sutherland

Julia Roberts didn't just play a runaway bride on-screen — she was one in 1991 when the actress abruptly called off her wedding to Sutherland.

That's not even the most dramatic part.

In a true turn of events, Roberts ran off to Ireland with Kiefer's friend, Jason Patric.

“When I get hold of Jason I am going to tear him limb from limb,” Sutherland was rumored to have said at the time via The Standard.

Years later, though, he was grateful for her ending things.

10. Blac Chyna

She and her ex, Future, clearly weren't on the same page.

During the time she got his name tattoed on her hand, he tweeted that he was "single and focusing on what makes me happy." She later had the tattoo covered up.

11. Iggy Azalea

The rapper ended her engagement to Nick Young after she found out that he was cheating with other women in their house.

She also found out that he was expecting a second child with his ex through the media.

"I find it baffling anyone would make the choice to bring a child into the world under these circumstances + want attention and $ for it," she tweeted abut the news.

She also tweeted: "I feel like I don't even know who the hell it is I've been loving all this time."

12. Taylor Swift

With a long history of ex-boyfriends, it must be hard to decide which breakup has been the worst!

But given how bad this one was, we're going to go with Joe Jonas who broke up with her on the phone.

She spoke about this while on *The Ellen Degeneres Show*.

"I’m not even gonna be able to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18." Thankfully, she's with a better Joe now!

13. Pete Davidson

Pete Davidson was once engaged to Ariana Grande. He has also struggled greatly (and publically) with mental health issues in the past.

The SNL star said his and Ariana's relationship was over shortly after the heartbreaking suicide of Ariana's ex, Mac Miller.

14. Isabelle Adjani

Daniel Day-Lewis decided to end his six-year relationship with French actress Isabelle Adjani via fax machine — how retro!

Isabelle claims that Daniel broke the news to her shortly after he learned that she was pregnant with his son.

15. Kris Humphries

Kris Humphries' marriage to Kim Kardashian was turbulent, to say the least.

They were divorced after only 72 days of marriage and Kris claims to have only discovered the heartbreaking news via media headlines. According to the former NBA player, he was absolutely blindsided.

16. Khloé Kardashian

Khloé Kardashian did everything in her power to make her marriage to former NBA star Lamar Odom work. Sadly, Odom was battling personal demons as well as a substance abuse problem.

Khloé says that she misses Lamar all the time, but that they are no longer on speaking terms.

17. Jennifer Lopez

JLo wrote about her engagement to Ben Affleck in her latest memoir, "True Love." She said:

"When Ben and I split up at the moment when I thought we were committing to each other forever it was my first real heartbreak, it felt like my heart had been torn out of my chest."

18. Ben Affleck

Around the time that Ben was filming Justice League he was quietly battling alcoholism, and it didn't take long before it started to take a toll on his marriage to Jennifer Garner.

Since the split, Ben has said that the divorce is without question the biggest regret of his entire life.

19. Jon Hamm


Jon Hamm spoke to In Style about his split from ex-girlfriend Jennifer Wesweldt; they were together for more than 18 years.

"It's hard," Jon admits. "It's hard to be single after being together for a long time. It's really hard. It sucks."

20. Kim Kardashian

After more than six years of marriage, Kim decided that she could no longer stay married to Kanye West.

On a particularly heartwrenching episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim admitted to feeling like a failure and a loser.
