These Celebrities Split Up Right After Their Spouse Got Really Famous

We’re not sure how we would feel about being a celebrity. While all of the money and power seem nice, fame seems like a terrible price to pay for it. If you really think about it, celebrities sacrifice a lot. Even when they are careful to be ultra-private, details about their family lives and their relationships always find their way into the media. In fact, romantic relationships seem to suffer the most when it comes to being a celeb.

Things can go array when a Hollywood couple starts off at the same level of success and suddenly one-half of the couple skyrockets onto the A-list becoming a household name overnight. Whether its due to massive scheduling differences, jealousy, or if a relationship had merely just run its course, these celebs split when one person’s fame eclipsed the other.

Well before Miranda Kerr was strutting down Victoria Secret’s runways, we knew of hunky British actor Orlando Bloom for his role in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The former couple began dating in 2007 when Bloom was at the height of his fame, and Kerr had just been given her angel wings.

The pair tied the knot in 2010 but split up just three years later as Kerr’s fashion campaigns and magazine covers began to quadruple. Meanwhile, though Bloom was still a significant part of the Pirates of the Carribean franchise, he has been in much less demand than he was in the early 2000s.

Next: This couple couldn’t remain “friends”.
