22 Messy Celebrity Breakups That Were Hard to Watch

As the saying goes, breaking up is hard to do. But when you're a celebrity couple under constant media scrutiny, parting ways is that much tougher. Infidelities, substance abuse issues, custody battles, and bitter arguments all tend to become public knowledge, making the experience all the more emotionally taxing and humiliating. Oftentimes, the parties involved only add salt to the wound by airing their own dirty laundry, badmouthing their exes or making thinly veiled accusations.


From Amber Heard and Johnny Depp's acrimonious divorce to the Angelina Jolie cheating scandal that ended Jennifer Aniston's marriage to Brad Pitt, here are some of Hollywood's messiest and most cringeworthy breakups.
