In Hollywood, it’s normal to hear about celebrity couples split up whether married for a few months or many years. Their divorce is unpredictable and one that usually comes as a surprise to their fans.
Recently, several couples have been experiencing marital problems with some of them deciding to file for divorce.
Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger
Singer Avril Lavigne announced last September that she and husband Chad decided to go their separate ways. No fights are involved, though, as their decision to divorce was amicable and both remain to be good friends. In fact according to Avril, she and Chad “are still and will forever be the best of friends” and will care for each other as always. The two got married in July 2013.
Beyonce and Jay-Z
If there’s one issue that singers Beyonce and Jay-Z are struggling to deal with, it has to be trust. And reports say this has led to a rocky marriage that might ultimately head towards splitsville. In fact, the couple are said to be thinking about divorce.
Beyonce and Jay-Z have been together since 1999 yet up to now, they continue to face trust and jealousy problems. According to a source close to the couple, Jay-Z is a “huge flirt” and has women surrounding him most of the time causing his wife to be jealous. Although observers point out that Beyonce is only human to feel jealous, worrying about her husband all the time can indeed badly affect their relationship.
Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez
For their part, Halle Berry and partner are dealing with irreconcilable differences. Money is not an issue in their troubled two-year marriage as reports say, the couple signed a prenuptial agreement.
“Some people including celebrities often opt to have a prenup before they tie the knot to protect their own assets and to keep them financially secure should things go wrong in the future,” according to Anat Resnik, one of the Los Angeles divorce lawyer known in her field. Legal experts agree that people who have acquired assets including properties while they’re single should opt for a prenup so their assets won’t be touched in case of divorce.
Personality difference has been cited as a major issue between the couple. A recent incident involving Olivier hitting a man with a car seat has been a cause of their arguments particularly as it led to Martinez being sued. Halle Berry reportedly filed for divorce first.
Halle and Olivier earlier issued a joint statement confirming their divorce and their wish for each other’s happiness. “We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus for what is best for our son,” they said.
The couple has a two-year-old son Maceo while Halle also has a daughter from a previous relationship.
Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady
Gisele Brundchen and Tom Bray are another couple whose facing a rocky marriage. The highest-paid model and NFL pro recently revealed in the US Weekly magazine that they have been fighting intensely over Brady’s suspension. The NFL quarterback player was suspended last May and was not allowed to play in four games.
Despite their problem, though, the supermodel continues to support her hubby during his trial.
