12 Celebrity Couples Who Called Off Their Weddings
Through the years, there have been so many broken celebrity engagements. Celebrities are always getting engaged and then calling it off. Many of them never even make it to the wedding planning stage; however, some do! We have a list of 12 celebrity couples who were in the middle of planning their wedding or were days away from their nuptials when they suddenly called it off – check it out:
12. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez had been set to tie the knot in September 2003 in a lavish $2 million ceremony, but they called the wedding off just four days before the planned ceremony because of “excessive media attention.” It took another four months, however, for the couple to finally call off the engagement and totally cut ties. The breakup really hurt Lopez. She later told VH1, that she’d never experienced that kind of heartbreak. “I don’t think I had ever been heartbroken in that way before,” she said. “I had so many hopes and dreams on something.”
11. Mariah Carey and James Packer
Mariah Carey and James Packer were in the middle of planning their wedding when it was suddenly called off. Carey had already bought her wedding gown and they were planning to have their wedding aboard his yacht when he reportedly got cold feet and called the whole thing off. Things then turned bitter between the two former lovers. Carey tried to sue him for $50 million for the expense of her moving out to L.A. to be with Packer. While the lawsuit has been settled, which had Carey receiving between $5 to $10 million instead of the $50 million she requested, there still seems to be hard feelings between the two. Packer told The Australian in 2017 that his relationship with Carey was a “mistake.” “I was at a low point in my personal life. She was kind, exciting and fun. Mariah is a woman of substance. But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me,” he said.
