Sweet celebs who married awful people

Not all celebs are lucky in love. In fact, some of the sweetest stars have found their way into bad relationships with less-than-stellar people. Hey — it's happened to the best of us. After all, love is blind, so it can be pretty dang hard to tell when trouble's just walked into a person's life. Still, love must also be deaf, dumb, and delusional because that's the only way these stars didn't run away screaming when they discovered the truth about their significant others. At least, that's the only way we can really explain how these otherwise delightful stars wound up tying the knot with alleged cheaters, gold diggers, control freaks, and not-so-better halves. And sure, there are two sides to every story, but the court of public opinion seems to have made up its mind about who's to blame for problems in paradise. Keep reading to find out which celebs entered some seriously dark and twisted romances.

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock is beloved by most movie-going audiences, so when she got teary thanking then-husband Jesse James at the 2010 Oscars, we all rooted for them. That also made it hurt twice as much when news broke that James allegedly cheated on America's sweetheart. He didn't just cheat, though—he cheated with a slew of women, at least one of whom had no issue rocking Nazi regalia. That may not have bothered James, though. He's reportedly been linked to Nazi-related art for quite a while, and some very unsettling photos of him in Nazi gear went public. Sources told Us Weekly that James is "into history…The swastika deal is to scare people. It's part of biker culture." Bullock kicked him to the curb and told People (via the New York Daily News), "The photo shocked me and made me sad. This was stupid, this was ignorant. Racism, anti-Semitism, sexism, homophobia, anything Nazi and a boatload of other things have no place in my life."

Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney's marriage to Heather Mills didn't seem terrible — until they divorced in March 2008. Justice Hugh Bennett, who presided over the split, wasn't impressed with Mills' efforts to snag $250 million from the former member of The Beatles. "I am driven to the conclusion that much of her evidence, both written and oral, was not just inconsistent and inaccurate but also less than candid," Bennett said (via People), noting that her requests for $400,000 annually for private flights, $80,000 for wine, and $250,000 for clothes were "ridiculous…unreasonable, indeed exorbitant." As recently as March 2015, Mills was still insulting McCartney, despite being awarded $48.6 million in the divorce settlement. She told U.K.'s The Late Late Show that McCartney was irrelevant, saying "When I go down the street, I get kids coming up to me — half of them don't even know who he is — that's why he's got to do songs with Rihanna and Kanye West, so people remember." She added, "You know, I own the biggest vegan company in the world. [McCartney] is just someone I fell in love with who to me was a normal guy that happened to write a few cool songs in the '60s and a few in the '70s."

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey's first marriage to record exec Tommy Mottola was the stuff of Lifetime movies: rich, powerful, and allegedly very controlling. Vanity Fair reported that Mottola, who was married with kids when he met Carey, allegedly wouldn't let her leave their mansion alone and employed security guards to follow her 24/7 — even to the bathroom. He also allegedly dictated Carey's entire life, even telling her when to sit and stand. Mottola was also accused of sabotaging her 2001 album and film, Glitter. Though he denied any abusive behavior, he wrote in his memoir (excerpted by Billboard) that the relationship was "absolutely wrong and inappropriate" and that he is "truly sorry for any discomfort or pain that all of my good intentions inevitably caused her, and most of all for the scars it left on my two oldest children." Sure he is, but that still hasn't stopped him from talking about Mimi every chance he gets.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez's first husband, Ojani Noa, probably seemed like a nice guy at the time, but once she became famous after they divorced, he reportedly tried selling her out. He dished about their relationship on Million Dollar Matchmaker in September 2016, complaining that she "chose her career" over their marriage. (It seems to have worked out pretty well for her, no?) That was only the most recent of Noa's offenses. In 2006, Lopez sued him to prevent him from publishing a tell-all book about their relationship, alleging that it violated a confidentiality agreement. A year later, Noa was issued a permanent injunction forbidding him from "criticizing, denigrating, casting in a negative light or otherwise disparaging" his iconic ex. He was also forced to pay La Lopez about $545,000 and give her all hard copies and materials related to the book he'd been trying to sell, according to The New York Times. In 2015, Noa reportedly tried to release an intimate video featuring Lopez that was filmed during their brief marriage.

Zsa Zsa Gabor

Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, seemed to capitalize on her December 2016 death as much as he could. According to The Hollywood Reporter, von Anhalt made much of his speech at her memorial service about Hollywood and about himself, even admitting that he met her because he paid a photo agency $5,000 to snap him with a star to establish himself as a celebrity—and that star was Gabor. He also used his platform to call Elizabeth Taylor fat when she was wheelchair-ridden at the end of her life, because, you know, he's classy.

Robert Kardashian

The late Robert Kardashian married Kris Jenner in 1978, but according to her own daughter, Jenner "destroyed" his life. Khloe Kardashian said in March 2016 (via Us Weekly) that she's committed to remaining faithful in relationships because "I saw what it did to my dad, so I don't want to do that. I also saw the regret from my mom." Jenner has said cheating on her husband was her life's biggest mistake. She had an explosive affair with Emmy-nominated animator Todd Waterman, who says they were still hooking up after she got together with her second husband, Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn Jenner).

Kim Kardashian

Before Kanye West, Kris Humphries, and Reggie Bush, Kim Kardashian married Damon Thomas. Kardashian was 19 when they eloped in 2000, and by February 2004 they'd split. Court documents obtained by Daily Mail paint a terrifying picture of the marriage. Kardashian accused Thomas, who was 10 years her senior, of "poisoning" her against her friends and family, urging her to drop out of college. She also claimed he was violent and slammed her into walls, pulled her hair, and punched her in the face. Kardashian alleges that Thomas encouraged her to get plastic surgery in order to become "perfect." He denied the claims to In Touch Weekly and alleged that Kardashian was trying to get more money out of him in their divorce settlement, claiming she cheated on him with Jennifer Lopez's second husband, Cris Judd.

Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel's divorce proceedings from ex Jason Hoppy lasted longer than her two-year marriage. The pair tied the knot in 2010 but were separated by 2012, and by Frankel's account, the split was very ugly. However, it was Hoppy's alleged behavior after their divorce that was most unsettling. TMZ reported that in November 2016, Frankel's boyfriend, Dennis Shields, had his lawyer send Hoppy a cease and desist letter after Hoppy allegedly sent him more than 100 harassing emails about Frankel. In January 2017, Page Six reported Hoppy was arrested for allegedly threatening Frankel when she picked up their daughter, Bryn, from school in New York—and it was revealed that he allegedly sent more than 150 emails of various insults and threats to her and Shields, allegedly calling her "ugly," "old," and "irrelevant."

Christie Brinkley

Christie Brinkley married Peter Cook in 2001, but by 2007, he got sloppy with his alleged cheating. Around 2005, Cook supposedly began hooking up with an 18-year-old assistant, Diana Bianchi, behind Brinkley's back. Bianchi's stepfather reportedly learned about the affair and spilled the beans to Brinkley, who quickly filed for divorce. They had a bitter custody battle over their daughter, Sailor, and a nasty battle over money — and he lost, taking home only $2.1 million of Brinkley's estimated $60 million fortune. Cook's subsequent wife, Suzanne Shaw, faced similar infidelity. After their split in 2014, she publicly apologized to Brinkley for ignoring her warnings about Cook, who later was accused of allegedly photographing women without their knowledge. Shaw even wrote him an email leaked to Page Six that read, "To think you fought Christie, the mother of your children, for custody, knowing what you were, knowing what you did…trolling the internet…filming your prostitute. Covertly photographing…and so much more." Yikes.

Anne Hathaway

Anne Hathaway wasn't married to Italian businessman and alleged swindler Raffaello Follieri, but he said he'd bought her an engagement ring and was getting ready to ask for her hand when their world came crashing down. In 2008, four years into their relationship, Follieri was arrested for money laundering. According to the Daily Mail, authorities seized personal photos and even Hathaway's diaries from his Trump Tower apartment as evidence in the crimes. The tabloid claimed relationship problems surfaced days earlier when news broke that Follieri's charity organization was being investigated by authorities, prompting Hathaway to resign from its board. "I was devastated," Follieri lamented (via the Daily Mail). "I knew as soon as I was arrested that our relationship was over because this situation was not comfortable for her. That was it."

Robin Wright and Madonna

Madonna and Robin Wright were both married to Sean Penn (Madge from 1985 to 1989, and Wright from 1996 to 2010), and he's been accused of treating both of them horribly. People and the Daily Mail reported that Penn's jealous rages during his relationship with Madonna led him to allegedly physically attack not just her, but also some of her friends and business associates…you know, when he wasn't in jail for other myriad legal offenses. As far as his relationship with Wright, well, look at everyone he dated during their marriage—some while on "breaks;" celebs Jewel, Petra Nemcova, Elle Macpherson, Jessica White, and Natalie Portman all allegedly became notches on his belt before he and Wright divorced. Is it any surprise Charlize Theron got out while the going was good?

Tina Turner

Ike Turner helped propel Anna Mae Bullock to superstardom when he took her under his wing and changed her stage name to Tina Turner. Unfortunately, with his tutelage and musical genius came reported domestic abuse, which Tina detailed in her memoir, I, Tina, and which was dramatized in the film What's Love Got to Do With it (1993). Before divorcing Ike in 1976, Tina claimed his abuse was so severe that at one point, he broke her jaw.

Britney Spears

Britney Spears may have dodged a bullet when she annulled her ultra-brief marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander. They were husband and wife for just 55 hours in 2004, but by 2012, he still wasn't over it "[The annulment was] bulls**t. That was probably the hardest part about it. I had obviously got my feelings involved," he said. "Nice guys finish last. Look out for yourself. If you are going to really get involved into a relationship with a celebrity and you are just an average Joe, make sure you are thinking business!" Of Spears' engagement to then-manager Jason Trawick, which ended in 2013, Alexander said, "I think it's fake and I think people are afraid to say it." In February 2016, court documents obtained by Us Weekly revealed that Alexander spent four months behind bars on domestic violence charges in 2015, pleading guilty to a count of felony assault.

Melanie 'Mel B' Brown

Former Spice Girls member Melanie "Mel B" Brown filed for divorce from estranged husband Stephen Belafonte after more than a decade together. Belafonte reportedly had quite the rap sheet before they got together. In 1994, he was charged with receiving stolen property after allegedly pleading down from burglary and theft. In 2000, he was accused of assaulting two men in a road rage incident; that charge was reduced to vandalism. In 2003, Belafonte pleaded no contest to allegedly battering his then-common-law wife while he was drunk. He also admitted to bludgeoning a duck to death with a brick outside of his New Jersey home when he was a teenager. He reportedly fled to Los Angeles and never paid his court fine for that incident. His behavior reportedly didn't improve after marrying Brown. In 2010, he was allegedly involved in a physical altercation with three men at a London hotel, leaving one hospitalized, but he was never charged in relation to that incident. As if all that wasn't bad enough, there's everything that happened post-split from Brown. She accused him of physically abusing her throughout their marriage, alienating her from her family, cheating on her with their nanny (who he allegedly got pregnant and forced to get an abortion), and sexually exploiting her for money. Belafonte denied all of those claims. Their contentious divorce was finalized in December 2017.

Ali Landry

Mario Lopez may be charming on TV, but he seems like a bit of a cad in real life — at least he did when he was married to model and actress Ali Landry. Lopez confessed to cheating on Landry during his bachelor party just days before their wedding in 2004. He told Howard Stern in 2011 (via Us Weekly), "It was spring break…everybody was hanging out. That was a situation where I was not mature enough and not man enough. I had no business of being in that position." Their marriage was annulled after just two weeks, but in his memoir, Just Between Us, Lopez poured salt on the would by writing that he never loved Landry in the first place. He claimed "lightning hit me with the truth" during that scandalous bachelor party. "I wasn't in love. But I walked down the aisle [anyway]."

Lana Turner

Old Hollywood screen siren Lana Turner wasn't married to Johnny Stompanato Jr., but she was trapped in an abusive relationship with him — and she claimed that, when she tried to leave him, he held a razor to her face and threatened to kill her. In the book Lana Turner: Hearts And Diamonds Take All (via The Daily Mail), it's claimed that the sweet celeb caught Stompanato, who was allegedly affiliated with The Mob, in bed with her 14-year-old daughter, Cheryl Crane. When she confronted him and told him it was the last straw and she was leaving him, he allegedly got violent and shook her. Crane rushed to her mother's defense and stabbed Stompanato in the stomach, killing him. It would be ruled justifiable homicide, but insiders later claimed Turner killed Stompanato herself and had Crane take the fall for the crime.
