As they say, there is only one step from love to hate, and lush bouquets of flowers can be replaced overnight by sleazebags. If your relationship with your ex-lover ended in a small verbal skirmish, you are very lucky. Sometimes the situation literally turns into a phase of war – and not the most honest means are used. “The Secret” recalls how celebrities took revenge on each other after a high-profile breakup. Spoiler: both funny and sad.
Shakira and Gerard Pique
In the summer of 2022, singer Shakira announced her breakup with Spanish Barcelona footballer Gerard Pique, with whom she had been in a relationship since at least 2011. Celebrities have two children, but they never got married. Insiders interpreted that the athlete in recent years led a wild life, spent evenings in nightclubs and cheated on the artist. Subsequently, it turned out that Pique really had a mistress.
There was no amicable parting. Shakira planned to take the children from Barcelona to Miami, which categorically did not suit Gerard. The football player demanded from the ex-lover that she annually paid him five tickets a year for a first-class plane to Miami so that he could see his children. Moreover, he insisted that Shakira return his $400,000 debt. And then the fun began.
It turns out that Gerard Pique really had an affair on the side. His mistress was 23-year-old Clara Chia Marti.
In January 2022, Shakira released a track where she told her ex everything she thinks about him and his mistress. In the new song, the artist quipped that Pique traded “Ferrari for Renault Twingo” and “Rolex for Casio”, as if hinting that she is much “more expensive” than the one with whom he is now. The football player was not taken aback and answered the artist on the stream of the Spanish media league King’s League. On the air, Gerard Pique boasted of the Casio brand watches, which the singer mentioned in the track, and then handed out the accessories to the stream hosts, announcing his collaboration with the brand. That’s not all. For one of the matches of the media league, Piquet arrived in a Renault Twingo.
On January 15, celebrities hit the headlines again. Shakira, apparently, decided to annoy her former mother-in-law as well. The artist installed a full-size witch doll on her balcony (opposite the windows of Gerard Pique’s mother) and turned on the scandalous track to its fullest.
Insiders say that the relationship between Shakira and her failed mother-in-law deteriorated after she supported her son’s new romance. Now the artist plans to isolate herself from her relative as much as possible and has already begun to build a wall on her site in Barcelona.
We are waiting for a response from the player.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
The public followed the relationship of socialite Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West like a reality show. Their luxurious wedding took place in 2014, and over the years of marriage, the couple got four children.
For a long time, the union looked flawless from the outside, but the more popular the rapper became, the more his mental health suffered. In 2016, Kanye was admitted to a psychiatric hospital, where he was diagnosed with bipolar personality disorder. And in 2020, in the midst of a pandemic, the rapper decided to enter politics and put forward his candidacy for the presidency. Here the most interesting began.
We have already talked in detail about how Kanye blew the roof. He repeatedly compared himself to Jesus Christ, clashed with other artists (he took the microphone from Taylor Swift at the MTV Awards, and subsequently insulted her in his songs), made strange friendships with Donald Trump, and even once attacked his fan. Just against the background of his mental problems and the scandalous political campaign, problems began in the family.
In 2021, in one of the episodes of the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim officially announced her separation from the artist: “He is an amazing father, he did an amazing job. <...> He should have a wife who supports his every step, travels with him and does everything, but I can’t. I feel like a failure. This is my third fucking marriage.”
At first, the rapper tried to return his beloved, but when the attempts were unsuccessful, he went on the attack. On social media, Kanye complained that Kim wouldn’t let him see his kids. The secular diva, in turn, denied the words of the ex-spouse and until the last remained calm and neutral.
But for the time being. In November 2021, when Kim started a joint TikTok account with her eldest daughter, things took a turn for the worse. Kanye did not like the fact that the ex-wife makes videos with the child and puts them on public display, to which the businesswoman sarcastically joked:
“Kanye’s constant attacks on me in interviews and on social networks are actually more harmful than any TikTok Nord (daughter of celebrities. — Approx. “Secret”). I do my best to protect our daughter and also allow her to express her creativity in the environment she wants under adult supervision because it brings her happiness.”
In January 2022, the rapper complained that he was not invited to his daughter Chicago’s birthday party. True, the footage taken by the paparazzi disproved the words of the rapper. Kanye lit up in several photos, and then came up with an excuse: they say, he found out about the time and place of the event and came himself.
In February 2022, Kim herself began to actively discuss her personal life with the press. The star said that she is not only the main guardian of the children, but also the main breadwinner. This revelation hit Kanye hard.
The stars not only exchanged barbs at each other, but also fought legal battles over divorce and custody of children. In February of that year, Kanye complained that Kim not only prevented him from communicating with the heirs, but also did not give permission for him to take them to Chicago, his hometown.
However, the rapper did not miss the opportunity to prick not only Kim, but also Pete Davidson, with whom she was already in a relationship at that time. On social networks, Kanye posted a photo of Pete and Kim (however, their faces are not visible on it) and wrote: “Look at this jerk, I wonder if Instagram will close “) my page after I insulted Hillary Clinton’s boyfriend.” A few weeks later, the rapper wrote angry messages directly to Pete. Kanye leaked one of the correspondence to the network. In the message, the comedian asked the artist to leave them alone with Kim, in response, the rapper asked where he was. “In bed with your wife,” Pete replied, accompanying the text of the selfie.
In March 2022, celebrities were officially divorced, but the scandal did not end there. Kanye continued to terrorize his ex-wife with controversial press comments and controversial posts.
In November 2022, the scandalous “exes” were again at the epicenter of discussions. Employees of Yeezy (West’s company) wrote an open letter to Adidas (whom they were collaborating with at the time) that the rapper was allegedly cruel to employees. It also said that the artist even showed nude photos of his then-wife to company employees.
According to media reports, Kim did not take any serious action, but began her own investigation into the case.
Singer Taylor Swift is sticking to a tried and tested way of getting revenge. The feeling of resentment and the bitterness of parting usually inspire the star to write songs – and even there she doesn’t pick up words and splashes all emotions out.
Perhaps each of her ex-boyfriends got a hit. Joe Jonas, who broke up with the singer in 2008 and made it a phone call, she dedicated two musical compositions at once – Forever and Always, Better than Revenge. On her relationship with Joe Mayer, which lasted from 2009 to 2010, Taylor released the hit Dear John. The artist accused the former of using the girls. “Don’t you think it’s too early to play your dark, confusing games with a nineteen-year-old?” One of the lines sings. Meyer called the composition the worst of all that he had ever heard, and then recorded an answer for Taylor – Paper Doll, which literally translates as “Paper Doll”.
The song also fell to Harry Styles, with whom the artist met in 2011-2012. After the breakup of the couple, Out of the Woods was born. Perhaps someday Taylor Swift will learn not to endure quarrels in public. But it is not exactly.
Daniel Craig and Satsuki Mitchell
In 2011, before marrying Rachel Weisz, actor Daniel Craig was engaged to Hollywood producer Satsuki Mitchell. The lovers were together for about 7 years, and then the actor began filming in the “House of Dreams”, it was there that he became interested in his future wife. However, Satsuki was not at a loss and found a way to take revenge on her unfaithful boyfriend.
According to media reports, one morning Daniel went to the set as usual. Only that night he did not return home. Satsuki persistently called, texted, and cut off all his emails, but the actor was probably with Rachel and therefore did not answer. Satsuki retaliated in the only way she could – withdrew about a million dollars from Daniel’s bank cards, to which she had access. This is what we understand – the knight’s move!
Calvin Harris and Rita Ora
Singer Rita Ora and musician Calvin Harris broke up in 2014 after 9 months of relationship. At first glance, it seemed that the lovers parted on a good note, but, apparently, the artist still harbored a grudge.
Firstly, he publicly announced the breakup (although before that he was a supporter of confidentiality), and secondly, he forbade his ex-girlfriend to perform the song I Will Never Let You Down, which he wrote for her – and this is already a blow below the belt. Rita found out about this shortly before the start of the festival, at which she was supposed to perform, among other things, this composition.
“The show was supposed to be amazing and we put so much work and money into it. I invested my own money, however, as always, ”the artist complained.
When the slippers flew into Harris, he wrote on Twitter that, they say, there was a good reason for this. Which one exactly is not clear.
