Amid numerous rumors of a break-up in their near future- Beyoncé and Jay-Z landed in New York this weekend and were seemingly putting on a united front that we’ve seen a number of times before. We don’t know why celebrities feel the need to keep frontin’ that all is well in their faltering relationships, but here are ten couples that did just that. Here’s Top Ten Celebrity United Fronts.
10. Ariana Grande and Nathan Skyes:
This couple was just as trivial as the Wanted‘s legitimacy as a boy band. After a very confusing, one-and-off again relationship, sources say the couple officially split because,
“They just weren’t into it anymore.”
9. Katy Perry and John Mayer:
This is the couple that tried indefinitely to make us to believe that they were together despite inevitable rumors that they were on the verge of breaking up. Katy hinted that the breakup was due to John’s “wild” ways in an interview with Elle UK magazine,
“The men I have gone for are challenging, yes, but they’re also wildly intelligent and poetic. I’m not interested in taming anyone–I’m pretty wild myself.”
8. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban:
After Keith was absent from the Cannes Film Festival in which his wife of eight years, Nicole Kidman, attended alone, speculations went wild that Keith and Nicole were most likely going to call it quits in the near future. That was until they attended the Country Music Awards hand-in-hand, most likely in an effort to put such pesky rumors to rest.
“It seems she and Keith really are on shaky ground. Keith didn’t appear to want to free up one day in his schedule to be with her in Cannes when she needed his support the most.”
7. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez:
Presented without comment.
6. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin:
Despite breakup rumors circulating far before they announced their “conscious uncoupling,” Gwyneth and Chris crusaded hard to make their relationship appear to be anything but on the rocks prior to their divorce. Seen here in one of their last public appearances together in January 2014. Chris seemingly is taking full responsibility for the failed marriage,
“About two years ago I was a mess, really, because I can’t enjoy the things that we are good at and I can’t enjoy the great things around me because I’m burdened by this,” he said in the British interview. “Up to a certain point in my life I wasn’t completely vulnerable and it caused some problems. If you don’t let love really in then you can’t really give it back.”
5. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson:
Robert Pattinson made a very rational decision when he kicked Kristen Stewart to the curb after catching her cheating with director, Rupert Sanders in the summer of 2012. He made a very irrational decision by ever deciding to get back together with her in the first place. After giving their relationship go for the second time, it was evident that Rob just wasn’t as into her as he once was. The saddest part of all of this, as you may recall, was that Robert was thisclose to proposing to Kristen before she ruined the relationship in it’s totality. Through US Weekly,
The magazine also reports that the lovestruck heartthrob had urged the media-shy Stewart to talk more openly about their relationship and that she was then heard gushing at a June 23 wedding in New Jersey that she was ready to have a baby with Pattinson.
4. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth:
Jesus Christ, we’re so happy he left her ass. Miley still likes to play it off that their relationship ended because it was entirely her decision.
“I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year,” Cyrus said of her breakup with Hemsworth, adding, “I don’t ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like, without them, you can’t be yourself.”
3. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore:
There were always constant rumors flying around that Ashton’s cheating ways were likely going to end his marriage to Demi Moore in some way or another. But do you remember when they made a camping trip in an effort to make us believe all was well after Ashton cheated on Demi with some nobody named Sara Leal? We do.
“Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher used Yom Kippur, the holiest and most solemn day of the year for Jews, to beg his heartbroken wife Demi Moore for forgiveness — at a campfire heart-to-heart in Santa Barbara, Calif., RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
As these exclusive photos obtained by Star magazine reveal, the 33-year-old serial cheater used the Day of Atonement to make amends for his ultimate sin: cheating on Demi with blonde Sara Leal, 23, on September 24 — the morning of their sixth anniversary.
The fireside chat is one of the rare times the embattled pair has been seen photographed together in three months and since news broke of Ashton’s wild hot-tub party awash with booze and blondes.
Reuniting at Cachuma Lake in the Santa Ynez Valley, Demi and Ashton had desperately wanted the October 8 rendezvous to remain a secret — their last ditch attempt to resurrect a faltering union.”
2. Beyoncé and Jay-Z:
Jay-Z is another husband that is notorious for being unfaithful to his beautiful and talented wife. We’re beginning to believe that Beyoncé’s family is definitely aware of his affairs and have been acting out against him in recent events. This part is mere speculation however, seeing as though they are making a constant, strenuous effort to convince us that their relationship has never been better. Through In Touch Weekly,
“Multi-millionaire hip-hop star Jay Z has been two-timing his wife with a New York hostess named Casey Cohen, who he reportedly sees at least twice a month.
The allegations come less than a month after a video surfaced of Beyonce’s sister attacking Jay Z in an elevator at the 2014 Met Gala – supposedly for having a girlfriend on the side.”
1. Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas:
After a tumultuous eighteen-year relationship that was rumored to have consisted of relapses in addiction, cheating scandals, and copious amounts of botox injections, we were actually really hoping that Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas were in it for the long-haul and would challenge the odds of stereotypically short Hollywood Marriages. However, after numerous public appearances together despite such allegations, Melanie filed for divorce from her husband Antonio this month and we’re still really sad to accept it.
“‘They have not been happy for a long time and they have taken a lot of breaks already so their estrangement is nothing new,’ a friend has revealed. ‘They wanted to wait till the timing was right to announce their divorce. It’s not a rash decision.'”
