Marriage is something very important to many people, and it can be a struggle to keep going strong or keep healthy after some time. When that falls apart many couples face divorce or separation which is heavily difficult to handle. However, when that is additionally stressed by other struggles, drama, or heavy public attention; a divorce can become even more ugly and hard for those involved. To get a better idea of that, here are some of Hollywood’s ugliest divorces that can give you an inside look into this topic.
Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie
This couple lasts through two years of marriage before Angelina filed for divorce in September 2016. The filing followed accusations of child abuse against Pitt over an incident on a jet with their son Maddox. This divorce was particularly ugly due to the long custody battle that followed it and took two whole years to find an agreement on. The two were battling for custody over their six children and didn’t come to any agreement until November of 2018.
Wendy Williams And Kevin Hunter
Wendy Williams, a talk show host, filed for divorce after over 20 years of being married to Kevin and spoke out about the issues that caused her to leave. Allegedly Hunter fathered a child during their marriage with another woman that he had been having an affair with. Williams discussed this occurrence with some magazines but seemed to be handling it well, the two have a child together named Kevin Jr.
Jules Wainstein and Michael Wainstein
This couple debuted on Real Housewives of New York City, and Jules filed for divorce in 2016 over an alleged affair that was denied by Michael via his lawyer. Later after the divorce, Michael claimed that Jules had assaulted him heavily in 2012, which was denied by Jules’ rep. The couple had two children together during their time as a couple who are named Jagger and Rio.
Johnny Depp And Amber Heard
Information on the court battles for a divorce between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard has been muddied and ongoing, as there are many sides to the story and difficulty in getting a clear answer of what occurred. Heard accused Depp of many incidents of abuse and destruction in their marriage, but many have spoken up that Amber was in fact the abuser in the situation, not Johnny. The divorce filing began in May 2016.
Gwen Stefani And Gavin Rossdale
Gavin had been cheating on Stefani for years with their children’s former nanny when Gwen filed for divorce in August 2015. The couple had been married for over 10 years and had three kids together which they received joint custody of when the divorce was finalized in 2016. Stefani and Rossdale were a popular couple during their marriage and time together since they were well-known rock and pop stars.

It came as a surprise to many fans and publishers.
Robin Williams And Marsha Garces
Williams and Garces fell in love in 1989 and had 19 long years of marriage together until they filed for divorce and were divorced in 2010. The cited reason for this split was “irreconcilable differences”, so not many know the story behind why the divorce occurred.
