Celebrities are in the limelight for their talent, and all the brilliant things they do. Unfortunately, they can’t escape from the eyes of the public and could have their private life exposed any time. This includes their relationship, from the dating stage to divorce.
Divorce rates in Suffolk County and the rest of the U.S. may differ, but divorce lawyers are always involved in helping couples come to an agreement. Here are some celebrity couple breakups that will have you wondering how and why it went so wrong.
Paul McCartney and Heather Mills
When the former Beatles star made public his desire to split with Heather in 2006, she spilled a lot of scandalous details about their marriage. Tabloids accused her of being a gold digger and a woman of shady reputation. She subsequently made allegations of Paul being a physically abusive partner. The mudslinging continued until Heather walked away with almost $50 million in settlement in 2008.
Charlee Sheen and Denise Richards
It can’t get any dirtier than the acrimony-filled divorce of Charlee Sheen and Denise Richards. It all started when Sheen’s abusive and rambling mails addressed to Richards went public. Denise went on to file court papers suggesting Sheen to be a person of loose sexual morals, among other unflattering things.
Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian
This couple’s divorce battle lasted for over 500 days even if they were merely married for 72 days. The NBA star alleged Kardashian had got into wedlock with only for money and ratings, and refused to divorce her. He refused to negotiate and cried fraud, even as Kardashian’s lawyers accused him of holding their client “hostage.” The divorce finally came through in 2013 before Kim gave birth to North, her baby with Kanye West.
Celebrity or not, a divorce can be an equally stressful and emotionally draining experience. Leave the legalities to professionals, while you battle the emotional stress.
