Celebs Who Treated Their Exes Like Trash

This feature discusses substance misuse and allegations of domestic violence.

Celebrity relationships are often put under a microscope — and that added pressure of fame likely takes a toll on their love lives. This might be part of the reason why some stars can't seem to end things peacefully with past partners. From Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez to Tyga and Blac Chyna, there is a long list of celebrity couples who had messy breakups play out online and beyond.

Iggy Azalea and Nick Young are among the famous couples who didn't end on the best terms ... to say the least. During an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," Azalea revealed that she burned Young's clothes after he cheated on her. "I burnt it all, darling," the rapper proudly admitted. "... Every designer you could think of, I've burned." She also detailed the moment she broke the news to Young. "I text him a video and I was like, 'Hey, I'm burning your s***," the rapper said. "I don't know where you're at — probably with some girl. I hope you get home quickly because we're progressing on the spectrum of cheap to expensive."

If you think their fallout was one for the books, there's plenty more where that came from — as evidenced in this list of celebs who treated their exes like trash.

Blake and Gwen reportedly left their exes blindsided

Country music star Blake Shelton and pop star Gwen Stefani first met when they were judges on "The Voice." A little over a year later, in November 2015, they confirmed the news that they were now dating. However, it turns out that their relationship got off to a messy start. Just months earlier, both Shelton and Stefani were going through divorces. They were still co-workers on "The Voice" at the time, so it's perhaps no surprise that they leaned on each other during this tough time and ultimately fell in love. 

However, their exes may have been left in the dark about their workplace romance. While speaking with Us Weekly, an unnamed source made claims about how Shelton's ex-wife, country music star Miranda Lambert, reacted to the confirmation of his new relationship. "She had her suspicions but didn't really know it was a real thing until the announcement," they alleged.

Meanwhile, Stefani's ex-husband, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale, made headlines after it was alleged that he cheated on her with their children's nanny. Speaking to TMZ, a source claimed that Rossdale thinks he wasn't the only disloyal partner in the relationship, as he believed that Stefani began seeing Blake while they were still together. If there's any truth to these claims who knows what else Shelton and the "Just a Girl" singer are hiding?

Brad Pitt's exes aren't too fond of him

If his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, is to be believed, then Brad Pitt might not be the most considerate ex. The couple tied the knot in 2000 with the "Friends" star later filing for divorce from him less than five years later. That same year, Pitt posed with his "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" co-star and future ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, in a photo shoot for W magazine. The steamy pics featured the actors posing as husband and wife accompanied by a large brood of fictional, blond children.

Aniston reacted to this photoshoot during an interview for Vanity Fair in 2006. She shared she had no idea that Pitt had actually conceptualized the photo story. "Is it odd timing? Yeah. But it's not my life," she said of her ex's photoshoot. "... We're divorced, and you can see why." She added her belief that Pitt likely probably didn't even realize how hurtful the shoot may be to her, saying, "There's a sensitivity chip that's missing."

In 2016, Jolie also filed for divorce from the "Babylon" actor. At the time, the star shared few public details about the reason for the separation. However, some allegations came to light after Pitt took her to court for selling her share of their wine company, Château Miraval, which he claimed violated contractual rights. According to The New York Times, Jolie's cross-complaint alleged that Pitt had physically assaulted both her and their children during a flight. The incident had been investigated by federal authorities, but no criminal charges were made.

Charlie Sheen isn't winning with his exes

Over the years, Charlie Sheen has had quite a tumultuous relationship with his ex-wife, Denise Richards. In 2007, People reported that the "Wild Things" star took her ex-husband to court in an attempt to protect their two daughters. The ensuing custody battle revealed shocking allegations against Sheen. Per the outlet, court documents revealed that Richards had accused him of, "Inappropriate conduct and behavior ... [including] his attraction to underage women and his sexual explicitness on the Internet, including revealing his private parts." 

Eight years later, Sheen celebrated Father's Day by sharing some harsh words about Richards in a since-unavailable Twitter thread. His explicit and lengthy rant included numerous insults about the star. In one, he wrote, "D Richards [is] a heretic washed up piglet." In another, he continued, "See [you] in court you evil terrorist sack of landfill [trash]. B***h couldn't act hot in a fire or wet in a pool."

Sheen had already long moved on, marrying Brooke Mueller in 2008, and welcoming twins together. On Christmas Day a year later, Sheen was arrested on domestic violence charges against his wife, to which he plead guilty in 2010. In a statement published by E! News, he commented, "I look forward to complying with the court's decision, getting on with my life, and putting this behind me"

Rob Kardashian brings the beef on social media

You might recall that Rob Kardashian's feud with Blac Chyna was so intense that he was ultimately blocked from using Instagram. To recap, the former reality TV stars went public with their relationship in January 2016. They went on to welcome a child together later that year. They faced many ups and downs over the course of their relationship and many of their squabbles took place online.

Tensions boiled over in July 2017 after Kardashian took to Instagram to share a lengthy rant and explicit photos of Chyna, alleging that she'd sent him a video of her and a new boyfriend in bed together. "This is the dude Chyna got caught cheating on me with for a minute now," he wrote in a separate post in which he shared a photo of the man. "And look, he texted me asking for help and said he needed money cuz he can't afford to pay Chyna's bill so that's why I pay her bills." The reality star went on to share a nude photo of his ex, which is likely what got his account deleted.

Kardashian also directed some anger toward his ex Rita Ora after they parted ways. In a since-deleted Twitter post, he claimed that the pop singer hadn't been faithful ... at all. "She cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes while we were together, I wonder how many she will sleep with now that we are apart?" he wrote in the post.

Tyga and Blac Chyna wronged each other

The drama between Tyga, Blac Chyna, and Kylie Jenner is certainly fascinating. Between 2011 and 2014, Tyga and Chyna were in a pretty serious relationship and even welcomed a child together. However, reports alleged that the rapper broke up with the model so he could begin dating a then-17-year-old Kylie Jenner.

After she and Tyga parted ways, Chyna seemingly directed her anger toward her ex's new girlfriend and even posted a since-deleted Instagram photo mocking Jenner's famous pout by wearing a fake set of plastic lips. Later, Chyna began dating Jenner's brother, Rob Kardashian. Of course, this romance could have formed organically. Or, as Kardashian himself appeared to theorize in a since-deleted Instagram post, his ex may have pursued him to get back at Jenner and Tyga.

Regardless, Chyna has made it clear that she isn't fond of her ex's family. In 2022, she even filed a defamation lawsuit against them. Per the BBC, Blac Chyna claimed that the Kardashian-Jenner family got her reality TV show, "Rob & Chyna" canceled after they made false claims about her attacking Rob. The star lost the case and her rivals ultimately walked away from the lawsuit untouched.

Did Calvin Harris sabotage Rita Ora's career?

Calvin Harris' relationship with Rita Ora turned sour after their breakup. Reports alleged that the DJ tampered with Ora's career after she was no longer his girlfriend, so it might be safe to say that the couple did not remain friends. In 2014, Harris was rumored to have denied his ex permission to perform, "I Will Never Let You Down" at the Teen Choice Awards — a song that he had written for her.

Ora took to "On Air With Ryan Seacrest" to make claims about how this last-minute decision unfolded. "For anybody who doesn't understand how it works, he wrote and produced the song," she explained. "... So he has to approve anything TV-wise for anybody who doesn't get it. And obviously he owns the rights to it and he didn't approve the Teen Choice Awards."

There were also rumors that Harris did not allow Ora to release other songs they had worked on together. This was said to have prevented her from releasing her sophomore album. In 2022, Harris took to Twitter to finally address these rumors in a reply to writer George Griffiths. "Entire thing is a myth, there is one unreleased song I worked on and it isn't good," he insisted. 

Taylor Swift shades her exes in songs

As Taylor Swift fans know, the musician isn't afraid to take jabs at her exes in her music. While some might say that her chosen form of artistic expression is justified, there are quite a few moments where the singer-songwriter has also shaded her former flings outside of her song lyrics. Joe Jonas may have been Swift's first target. 

In 2009, she claimed he broke up with her over the phone during an interview on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." She pithily added that she imagined the star would be far from her mind once she found her soulmate. "When I look at that person, I'm not even gonna be able to remember the boy who broke up with me over the phone in 25 seconds when I was 18," the "Anti-Hero" singer said. She also shaded Jonas as part of her "Saturday Night Live" monologue that same year. "You might think I'd bring up Joe, that guy who broke up with me on the phone, but I'm not gonna mention him," Swift jokingly sang on the show. 

Meanwhile, fans have long speculated that the singer's song, "All Too Well," is about her relationship with actor Jake Gyllenhaal. In 2021, she rereleased the song with new lyrics that appeared to hint at her ex finding their age gap a problem. However, in the song, she dryly quips, "I was never good at telling jokes, but the punchline goes, 'I'll get older, but your lovers stay my age.'"

Joe Jonas has been quite the blabbermouth

We know that Swift shared her story of being dumped by Joe Jonas, so it's not all that shocking to hear that he may have treated some of his other exes similarly. For starters, he briefly dated Demi Lovato for a month in 2010. The "Holy Fvck" performer has been open about her experiences with substance misuse and their journey to sobriety, so you would think that Jonas would have been considerate of this when discussing his past relationship with the star. However, he discussed details of his ex's drug use during a 2013 interview with Vulture, including an incident where the star allegedly punched a woman on a plane. Jonas even claimed he used marijuana for the first time with Lovato and Miley Cyrus.

The Jonas Brothers star also revealed super intimate details about his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Ashley Greene. During a 2016 Reddit AMA he disclosed details of losing his virginity to the "Twilight" actor, writing that he had to steal condoms from his roommate for the encounter. "I demolished his room looking for them," the musician wrote. "Found them underneath his underwear drawer. When he came home, he thought somebody broke into his room because his whole room was demolished. After all, I was in dire need. Needed to happen then and now. Safety first, kids." We wonder how Greene felt after seeing that her ex went public with this information.

Karrueche Tran filed a restraining order against Chris Brown

Chris Brown just couldn't move on after parting ways with actor Karrueche Tran. In 2014, the "Claws" star shared a since-deleted Instagram post announcing that she'd decided to end her relationship with Brown. "I refuse to be repeatedly mistreated especially by someone who claims to love me," she penned in the lengthy post. "That's not love. Yes, I have not been so smart before in the past but I made a promise to be a better and stronger woman and I'm keeping that promise." At the time, reports had emerged claiming that the actor called off the relationship because Brown got another woman pregnant while they were together.

Brown seemingly addressed Tran's statement in a since-deleted post he shared on his own Instagram account. "That ride or die act we have been fooling the world with obviously ain't working," he wrote, in part. "I was locked up for damn near four months and only got one visit from you while [you] was hosting parties and taking secret trips to Toronto, going on dates with Drake!" 

Brown was then accused of having harassed Tran and her then-boyfriend Victor Cruz after the breakup. The "Under The Influence" singer's behavior allegedly became so concerning that Tran was granted a 5-year restraining order against him in 2017, per TMZ. In court, she shared threatening text messages she had received from Brown and claimed he had been violent against her in the past.

Justin couldn't shut up about Britney

When the "Framing Britney Spears" documentary was released in 2021, fans revisited Justin Timberlake's relationship with Britney Spears. The film suggested that the "Sexy Back" singer may not have been the nicest ex, and he immediately came under fire for his treatment of the star. In 2002, during an interview with Barbara Walters (via New York Post), he refused to confirm or deny the rumors that Spears had cheated on him. However, he seemingly made reference to the allegation in the unreleased track, "Horrible Woman," performed during their conversation.

Timberlake clearly isn't fond of whoever the lyrics refer to, with one line stating, "So, you had your chance to be my lover. I guess you needed something more undercover." The "Mirrors" singer even included a Spears look-alike in the music video for his song, "Cry Me a River." As if that wasn't harsh enough, during interviews, the star also made repeated comments about sleeping with Spears — who had become renowned for her stance to remain a virgin until marriage. 

Timberlake received so much backlash from these details being unearthed in the documentary, that he issued a lengthy apology on Instagram. The statement also addressed his treatment of Janet Jackson following the 2004 Super Bowl Halftime Show controversy. "I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem," he wrote. "Where I spoke out of turn or did not speak up for what was right," 

Nick Loeb took Sofía Vergara to court

Businessman Nick Loeb and "Modern Family" star Sofía Vergara split in 2014. Following their breakup, they entered a legal battle because he wanted custody of the two embryos he and the star froze while they were still together. According to Nola, court documents indicated that the businessman hoped to prevent Vergara from destroying the embryos, which he referred to as Emma and Isabella. The lawsuit stated, "Emma and Isabella seek that they be entrusted to their natural father Loeb, who is willing and desirous that they be born and become eligible to receive their inheritance."

However, her ex was not successful in obtaining custody. Seven years later, People reported that a court had finally agreed Loeb could not use the embryos to create children without Vergara's written consent. It turns out that this lengthy legal battle may have been part of his efforts to remain associated with his ex. Page Six reported that his anti-abortion film, "Roe v. Wade," may have also been an attempt to get back at Vergara. An unnamed former friend of the star told the outlet, "He is obsessed with Sofía. [And] he's using [the embryo battle and the movie] to promote himself."

John Mayer was a loose-lipped ex-lover

When it came to his relationship with Jessica Simpson, musician John Mayer left nothing to the imagination during an interview with Playboy in 2010. "Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me," he said of the star. "Sexually it was crazy. That's all I'll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm."

Ten years later, in her memoir "Open Book" (via Refinery 29), Simpson alleged that Mayer had been a toxic boyfriend, and had broken up with her nine times via email during the course of the relationship. Addressing her ex's Playboy interview during a 2021 interview for the "Tamron Hall Show," she revealed that she hadn't been expecting an apology from Mayer. "I mean, you can't take it back," she said. "And I'm a very forgiving person but I'm also honest. So, in the memoir, if I'm gonna talk about stuff that caused me pain, I'm going to be honest about it. And that was a time in my life where I was very manipulated and also in love, or seemingly."

In the same shocking Playboy interview, Mayer also spoke about his former relationship with Jennifer Aniston. As you may have guessed, he didn't exactly keep his statements classy and seemingly took a dig at the actor's age and her subsequent inability to move with the times. "The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter," he said. "I think she's still hoping it goes back to 1998."

Wilmer Valderrama bragged about his conquests

Much like John Mayer, Wilmer Valderrama has also come under fire for sharing a little too much information about his exes in interviews. During a 2006 appearance on "The Howard Stern Show," Valderrama claimed he took his ex-girlfriend Mandy Moore's virginity. He also laughed along while Stern and his crew made vulgar comments about the "This Is Us" star. Despite stating how much he enjoys taking a woman's virginity, he added, "It is not like warm apple pie." He was then asked to rate his former flings on a scale of one to 10. While he successfully avoided giving scores for most of the women, he regardless labeled his ex Jennifer Love Hewitt an eight.

Twelve years later, Moore shared her reaction to Valderrama's comments when she appeared on "The Howard Stern Show" herself. As you might imagine, she wasn't happy with what he had to say about their relationship and suggested he had lied about the situation. "I dated him when I was 16 and 17. No," she said. "I love him and I still love him and he's a very good friend, and that's why I was so shocked by it. Because not only was it a fib, but it was so unlike him — it was so uncharacteristic." Stern told Moore that Valderrama asked if they'd be willing to not air the interview, so perhaps he regretted what he said. Moore clarified that she thinks he's a good guy and that they've remained friends.

Did Kim Kardashian marry Kris Humphries for views?

Some elements of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries' 72-day marriage may have been staged to line the reality star's pockets because Kris' family once alleged their wedding ceremony was all for ratings. The basketball player's aunt and uncle, Dedria and Mike Humphries, suggested that their nephew's wedding ceremony wasn't authentic during an interview with The Sun (via Radar). "It was a sham," Dedria told the outlet. "My understanding of marriage is people are going to give it more than 72 days unless there's serious abuse."

She went on to share why she felt Kris needed to get the marriage annulled. "If I felt somebody had duped me and used me in front of the whole world, I would be very angry," Dedria said. "An annulment says it wasn't valid in the first place. She should admit that it was a sham at the very least." Kardashian later acknowledged some of her wrongdoings during a "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" reunion special in 2021 (via Insider). During it, she suggested she went forward with the wedding partially because it was being aired on her family's reality TV show, and she felt pressured to follow through on her commitment. Does this confirm the allegations made by the basketball player's family? We'll let you decide.

Kanye had a lot to say about Kim and Amber

Rapper Kanye West has a lengthy history of treating his exes like trash. Let's start with model Amber Rose, who dated the rapper from 2008 until 2010. The drama that unfolded after their breakup often made headlines. During an interview with Power 105.1's "The Breakfast Club" in 2015, West took a dig at Rose by suggesting that women were repulsed by him having been with her. "It's very hard for a woman to want to be with someone that's with Amber Rose," he quipped. "I had to take 30 showers before I got with Kim." As you may have guessed, the model wasn't too fond of his statement. In response, she took to Twitter to suggest West's comments were rich considering that his then-wife had once made a sex tape with the rapper, Ray J. 

Kardashian became West's next target during their divorce in 2022. In a since-deleted Instagram post, the rapper alleged that Kardashian didn't get his approval to allow their daughter, North West, to post videos to TikTok. West later claimed (via The U.S. Sun) that he also wasn't allowed to attend their daughter, Chicago West's birthday party. When Khloe Kardashian denied this allegation, he fired back with a lengthy social media post, writing, in part, "You are lying and are liars. Y'all basically kidnapped Chicago on her birthday so she could remember her father not being there." You might recall that West also attacked Kardashian's now-ex Pete Davidson on social media.

Pete Davidson quickly moved on with Ariana Grande

Pete Davidson was on the receiving end of Kanye West's online attacks while he was dating the rapper's ex-wife, but it turns out that the comedian might not be all that innocent himself. Cazzie David, who is the daughter of comedian Larry David, revealed shocking details about her split from the "Saturday Night Live" alum in her book, "No One Asked For This: Essays." After having dated for over two years, Cazzie asked the comedian if they could take a break. However, it seems that she quickly regretted her decision because when she attempted to repair the relationship soon after, Davidson had already moved on. After the comedian broke things off via text message, Cazzie found out that he had begun dating Ariana Grande.

The chaos that followed Davidson and Grande's highly publicized relationship trickled over into his ex's life. In her book, she claimed that she was bullied by the fans of the couple online. "It was a really pivotal moment in my life," the writer told the Los Angeles Times. "And writing about it has caused me a ton of anxiety, especially because I talk so much about hating the attention it brought me." Although Davidson didn't end the relationship on the best terms, he did praise his ex-girlfriend's book during an interview with Insider.

Ray J denied Kim Kardashian's sex tape claims

Ray J has had a lot to say about the infamous sex tapes he filmed with Kim Kardashian. Although the reality TV star probably wishes her ex would stop speaking out about the scandal, he dropped bombshells in an interview with Daily Mail in 2022. 

On an episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" that aired that year, Kim claimed that she didn't want the original tape to be made public and that she had concerns that Ray J might leak their second tape. "'I've never leaked anything," he told Daily Mail. "I have never leaked a sex tape in my life. It has never been a leak. It's always been a deal and a partnership between Kris Jenner and Kim and me and we've always been partners since the beginning of this thing." He went on to claim that Kardashian had always been in possession of all three of the tapes they filmed and that she kept them in a shoe box under her bed. That includes the Cabo tape that she alleged he may have had during the episode of her show. 

Sex tape aside, Ray J has also had a rather tumultuous relationship with his ex-wife Princess Love. He's filed for divorce from Love numerous times, but as of this writing, they always seem to find their way back to one another. 

Jesse James was insulting to Sandra Bullock

In 2011, Jesse James took to "The Howard Stern Show" (via Daily Mail) to insult ex-wife Sandra Bullock's bedroom skills after he previously cheated on her with several other women. Yep, you read that right. The former reality TV star seemingly didn't hesitate to share super intimate details about his relationship with his ex, just a year after she'd filed for divorce from him. When asked if Bullock or his then-partner Kat Von D was better in bed, he responded, "That one is an easy no-brainer. One hundred percent [Von D]. She's a vixen."

James then went on to discuss his infidelity. "I think I subconsciously did want to get caught, but I didn't think it would be as crazy as it got," he admitted. "The problem was me ... I could marry anyone and it didn't matter because I would always screw it up and sabotage it because I couldn't live with myself. She could stand there in front of the world and say she loved me, but in my mind, I was thinking, 'Yeah? Bulls***. You don't love me. I'm just some biker kid.'" 

Some might say that this isn't exactly a valid excuse for James' cheating, especially considering he allegedly spent big bucks on the women he cheated with. Still, he was at least consistent. Just a short while after trashing his ex, his relationship with Von D similarly fell apart after she accused him of cheating on her with 19 other women. 

Marilyn Manson flaunted his new relationship

Marilyn Manson and Dita Von Teese divorced in 2007 reportedly due in part to Manson's infidelity. "It was difficult, because I was trying to get him help for his problems, and eventually I realized that he didn't want help," Von Teese told The Daily Telegraph (via People) the year of the split. "I wasn't supportive about his partying or his relationship with another girl and as much as I loved him I wasn't going to be part of that."

The other "girl" the burlesque star was likely referring to was actor Evan Rachel Wood, who Manson allegedly cheated on her with while they were married. Per Insider, the "Westworld" actor has since come forward with allegations that she experienced a variety of abuse during their relationship. He denies the allegations, and filed a defamation lawsuit against her in 2022, per NBC News

Manson went public with his relationship with the then-18-year-old soon after he and Von Teese split. Seeing the two flaunt their love for one another in the public eye might have been hard for the performer. It likely didn't help that the shock-rocker didn't appear remorseful about cheating on Von Teese. "She said she had tolerated the lifestyle because she hoped I would change and threatened to leave if I didn't," he told Spin in 2014. "I was sleeping on the couch in my own home. I was no longer supposed to be a rock star. I was someone who had to be apologized for."

Future publicized his custody battle with Ciara

Future and Ciara appeared to be in it for the long haul before they parted ways in 2014. The celebrity couple dated for a year got engaged and even welcomed a child together over the course of their two-year relationship. They reportedly broke up after Future cheated. The star took to Twitter to make his custody battle public. "This b***h got control problems," Future said of his ex in a since-deleted Tweet. "I gotta go through lawyers to see Baby Future ... The f***ery for $15k a month."

The rapper later shared his opinion on Ciara's new relationship with NFL player, Russell Wilson. It seems that Future really didn't like his child being around the sports star, and he wasn't shy about it. "Like, if I was a kid and my mom had a dude pushing me, I would've jumped out of the stroller and slapped the s***t out of him," he said during an interview with "The Breakfast Club." "You never do that in our community. You don't even bring a man around your son." 

It might be safe to say that Ciara wasn't fond of Future's decision to speak out about her and her new relationship. In 2016, she filed a $15 million defamation lawsuit against him, per TMZ. The singer dropped the lawsuit in October of the same year due to an increase in income.

Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber fought online

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez aired much of their drama on the internet over the course of their tumultuous relationship. In 2016, one of their spats even played out live on Instagram for all of their fans to observe. The series of since-deleted posts seemingly suggested that the two couldn't maintain peace during their (temporary) split. It all started after Bieber posted more than a few photos of his then-girlfriend Sofia Richie to Instagram. Gomez's fans then flooded the star's posts with some not-so-nice comments about the model.

This prompted Bieber to come to his new girlfriend's defense. "I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand," he wrote in the caption of a post. "If you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like." The "Peaches" singer may have ruffled Gomez's feathers with that one because she also issued a response herself, writing, "If you can't handle the hate, stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol — it should be special between you two only."

In 2020, after they'd ended things for good, Gomez alleged in an interview with NPR that she'd experienced emotional abuse within the relationship. As of this writing, Bieber has never responded to the claims. However, in a 2015 interview with Complex, he suggested he had been too young to adequately handle such a big relationship.

Eminem loves a good diss track

Many seemingly tumultuous aspects of Eminem's relationship with his ex-wife Kim were played out in the public eye. For example, the rapper released a number of songs with gruesome lyrics about her after they broke up. In his song "97 Bonnie and Clyde," he tells his daughter the fictional story of how he drowned her mother. The song "Kim" includes similarly violent lyrics.

Kim opened up about Eminem's behavior toward her during an interview for "The Dr. Keith Ablow Show." "I believe that Marshall has issues on how to express his love, and I don't think he knows how to treat women because he wasn't treated well by his mother," she speculated. "He had a lot of anger towards her."

Kim wasn't the only woman the rapper penned cruel lyrics about. Eminem's feud with Mariah Carey erupted after the singer insisted that she never dated the hip-hop star. He argued otherwise within many of his song lyrics. In "Bagpipes from Baghdad," he even pulled Carey's then-husband into the fray by wishing him luck with the marriage before calling the singer a sexist slur. However, the "Heartbreaker" singer swiped back with her 2009 diss track, "Obsessed," in which she implied that Eminem had lied about their previous relationship. 

Big Sean wrote a vulgar song about Naya Rivera

In 2014, it was hard to escape Big Sean's vulgar hit song, "I Don't F*** With You." Fans questioned who the rapper was directing all of his anger toward in the song, and he finally revealed the truth in an interview with Complex. Apparently, the line "Every day I wake up celebrating s***. Why? 'Cause I just dodged a bullet from a crazy b***h,'" was in reference to his past relationship with ex-fiancée Naya Rivera. Although Big Sean told Complex that some lyrics were about Rivera, he also made it clear that there were no harsh feelings. He insisted, "[The song] did not come from a bitter place at all." Hmm ... some might say that those lyrics suggested otherwise.

The rapper spoke about the song once again during an interview with Vulture in 2020. He shared that his feelings toward the tune changed following Rivera's accidental death in California's Lake Piru in July of that year. "We had a breakup that was very public, and we were young and we forgave each other and moved on from that," he stated. "If I would have known something this tragic would have happened, I would have never made the song." He also revealed that the track had received Rivera's approval. "It wasn't a diss to her," Big Sean said. "I truly made the song and played it for her. She knew about it, and she liked it."

Did Zayn Malik dump Perrie Edwards over text?

Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards went public with their relationship in 2012 and got engaged just one year later. Unfortunately for fans of the couple, they never made it down the aisle. The pop stars parted ways in 2015 after rumors of Malik cheating on his fiancee came to light. Edwards wrote about the breakup in a book collectively written by herself and the rest of the members of Little Mix titled, "Our World." Since she was living with Malik at the time, the breakup left her without a home. "After I split with my partner, out of the blue, I had nowhere to go, which was incredibly stressful," she wrote. She went on to explain that her bandmates offered her a place to stay but didn't have the space to properly accommodate her.

Edwards added that her mother and management team were able to eventually set up a proper living arrangement for her. The singer went on to write that Malik ended the relationship over text. If true, some might be inclined to say that the former One Direction member seems like a real jerk. However, he insisted that this wasn't how things unfolded. "I have more respect for Perrie than to end anything over text message," Malik said in a 2016 interview with The Fader. "I love her a lot, and I always will, and I would never end our relationship over four years like that."
