The Most Surprising Celebrity Breakups Of The Decade
UPDATED: 9:02 A.M. ET, September 10, 2020 —
For the final day of the decade, it’s important we spend time on what really matters: celebrity breakups.
A lot has happened over the past 11 years. It seems like just yesterday Kim K was on Keeping Up With The Kardashians talking about her boyfriend Reggie Bush and Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey were making headlines for their secretive wedding–but a lot of our favorite celebrity couples met their demise during the last decade. Some have welcomed children, and have gone on to find love elsewhere. Others are still fairing the rocky waves of their relationship. Some, are no longer here with us like Glee actress Naya Rivera who tragically passed away in July of this year.
Now that 2020 is here, let’s take a look at the most surprising celebrity breakups of the decade and where they are now:
Kim Kardashian & Reggie Bush (2010)
Thankfully, just like “The Bush and The Tush,” celebrity couple names in general seem to be a thing of the past.
The reality star and her baller boyfriend dated for 3 years and briefly split in 2009 before reuniting, but ended up breaking up for good in 2010. According to reports, Reggie was unable to deal with Kim’s rising level of fame–and the fact that their relationship was plastered all over the internet thanks to storylines on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
In the end, Kim ended up with her match made in heaven and probably the only person in the world just as used to fame as her: Kanye West. As for Reggie, he seems to have found happiness too…with a woman a lot of people think look just like Kim K. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with having a type…right?
Kim and Kanye currently have four children together, but things haven’t always been easy. Back in July, Kanye experienced another meltdown via Twitter following his presidential rally appearance (Yes he’s attempting to run for president). The rapper and Grammy award-winning producer made claims that Kim and her mother Kris Jenner, tried to “lock him up.”
Kanye was officially diagnosed with bi-polar disorder in 2016 according to News.
Since then, we’ve seen him struggle publically with his mental health issues. In an interview with Vogue in 2019, Kim opened up about her husband’s battle with the condition and that he wasn’t taking medication:
“For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is,” she explained during the interview.
“Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them.”
“I think some of the hurtful things that I read online: ‘What is she doing? She’s not stopping him …’ Like it’s my fault if he does or says something that they don’t agree with?
“That’s my husband,” she said. “I share every opinion that I have and let him know when I think something’s wrong. Or if it comes to him being in the middle of a bipolar episode, I’ll do everything to be supportive and help to calm the situation.”
It seems as though Kim is making every effort to keep her marriage strong with Kanye and protect their happy family.
