6 times celebs were open about their relationship struggles
Celeb couples don’t have it easy. Their relationships are talked about, hyped, looked down upon, questioned and even made fun of. All thanks to the media. Celebrities have a crazy fandom and everyone wants to know what’s happening in their lives giving the media a good enough reason to leverage that and make money. Well, we can’t blame them for it. It’s their job! Like any other relationship, even celeb couples have problems dealing with their better halves. And considering the number of breakups that we’ve witnessed, we’re anyway left to question the concept of love altogether. But then, there are also the ones who stick through it all and make it work. Here’s a mixed bag of all; some successful, some unsuccessful relationships where these celebs got real and opened up about their relationship struggles.

Anna Faris and Chris Pratt

Ellen and Portia De Rossi

The ex-couple announced their legal separation and shattered the world. They mentioned that they “tried hard for a very long time”, but things didn’t work out (obviously). Shortly after, Anna opened up about toxic relationships and how it only makes sense to get out of relationships where someone doesn’t have your back, or doesn’t fully value you. We couldn’t agree more!


Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt

Ellen and Portia De Rossi

Everyone sympathized with the heartbroken Jennifer Aniston when Brad Pitt cheated on her with Angelina Jolie while being married to her. She told Vanity Fair how she wished she wouldn’t have had to go through her feelings in front of the world and how she really tried hard to “rise above it”.


Victoria and David Beckham

Ellen and Portia De Rossi

One of the most loved couples of all time and parents to four adorable children, Victoria and David Beckham have been now married for 18 years and are still going strong. They’re the ideal couple giving everyone around the world some serious relationship goals. In an interview, David opened up about the inevitable mistakes he made in his marriage. He said, “We all know marriage is difficult at times” and how “working through the mistakes” made his marriage strong again.


Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner

Ellen and Portia De Rossi

Kris Jenner handled the whole Bruce Jenner (Now, Caitlyn) scenario extremely level-headedly. She addressed themselves as “well-rounded human beings going through a tough time”. She started how they “work together” to make sure they’re both happy. Honestly, that’s very sweet and an extremely matured thing to do. We love how they hang out together and have their share of fun even after all those years of relationship problems.


Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds

Ellen and Portia De Rossi

Social media is full of Blake-Ryan appreciation posts and videos but according to Blake, that’s just one aspect of their relationship. In an interview, she talked about her marriage coming with its fair share of problems and how she and Ryan talk it out more in a best friend way rather than a conventional couple. You go Blake and Ryan.


Ellen and Portia De Rossi

Ellen and Portia De Rossi

The couple had been going through quite some relationship problems but everything seems to be well now. They celebrated their 9th wedding anniversary in August, but there were also divorce rumours that Portia denied by stating that they “talk about everything and never ever, ever lie to each other”. She described Ellen as her “best friend” and claimed that she wants to be with her all the time. Awwdorable!
