Rain Man actor Tom Cruise married his second wife actress Nicole Kidman in 1990. The two met while filming the movie Days of Thunder. They were married for just over 10 years during which they adopted two children.
The marriage ended on good terms, and they chose to settle the divorce privately rather than in a nasty public court battle. Kidman still talks of her love and adoration of Cruise.
Comedian and former cast member of Saturday Night Live, Chris Rock and Malaak Compton were married for 18 years. Malaak is the founder of StyleWorks, a non-profit salon that provides free services to women leaving welfare and entering the workplace.
Sadly, Chris cheated on her with three different women and has admitted that the divorce was a wake-up call. He also confessed to dealing with a porn addiction. The four-time Emmy Award winner and three-time Grammy winner has since started dating actress Megalyn Echikunwoke, but they broke up in 2020 after a four-year relationship.
The world went crazy when Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise started to date and got married and had a daughter, Suri. They went even crazier after their six-year marriage ended in divorce.
They split in 2012 reportedly due to Tom Cruises’ growing obsession with Scientology. Katie wasn’t a fan and was reportedly worried about their daughter’s well-being. There aren’t very many details about the divorce settlement just like the Church of Scientology’s doctrine.
The pop princess Britney Spears has always been the focus of media attention since the release of her first studio album Hit Me Baby One More Time in 1999. We all gawked in excitement when the singer dated her former costar on The Mickey Mouse Club, Justin Timberlake.
Britney is infamous for having short marriages. Her very public relationship with Kevin Federline was for a brief time all over the tabloids. We say brief because they were only married for two years. Britney filed for divorce and Kevin got $1 million-plus child support.
The late Burt Reynolds was an American actor, director, and producer. He received an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Character for his performance in Boogie Nights. He married actress Loni Anderson in 1988 and the two were married until 1993 during which they adopted a son together, Quincy.
They split in what was a very nasty divorce, the divorce apparently brought on by Reynolds falling for a cocktail waitress. Reynolds declared bankruptcy before he paid Anderson the entire divorce settlement and only was able to pay her the remaining money in 2014.
