9 Celebrity Divorces That Were A Long Time Coming
Some celebrity divorces catch people off guard because they seem to come out of the blue; however, there are other divorces that we knew were coming – it was just a matter of when! We have a list of 9 celebrity couples who were obviously headed for splitsville long before their marriages ended:
9. Sean Penn and Robin Wright
Sean Penn and Robin Wright had a notoriously volatile relationship, which made it seem as though it was only a matter of time before things completely blew up. They began dating in the late ‘80s after his marriage to Madonna ended and the two proceeded to break up and make up long before they were finally married in 1996. Once they were married, the couple continued their pattern. They filed for divorce in 2007, only to have the divorce petition withdrawn in 2008. Then Penn filed for separation in 2009 and withdrew the petition only a month later, and a few months later in 2009, Wright filed for divorce, declaring that she had no intention of reconciling. This marriage was doomed before it began, and most people saw the writing on the wall.
8. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline
When Britney Spears announced that she was going to marry her backup dancer turned lover, Kevin Federline, everyone knew that it wouldn’t last. Even as they two began having children together, people were waiting for a divorce announcement from the two. The marriage only lasted two years and, while Federline was blindsided by Spears’ divorce filing, the rest of us knew that this breakup was a long time coming.
