Ex-Celeb Couples Who Had An Ugly, Public Breakup, From Ranbir-Deepika To Hrithik-Kangana

Love and breakup have been quite a common attribute in modern relationships these days. While it is easy for a couple to fall in love despite all oddities, it is ironic that in some instances, these much-in-love couples fall out of love and end up parting ways. However, while there have been a few of them who have maintained their dignity and have broken up mutually, there have been some others who chose the other way and separated with an ugly spat. Well then, take a look at some of these ex-celeb couples who chose to break up with their partners while citing their ugly secrets in public!

#1. Deepika Padukone cited Ranbir Kapoor’s frequent cheating as the reason for their break up

Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor have been one such couple who had hit the headlines both during their relationship, as well as after it ended. For the unversed, the duo developed feelings for one another when they came together for their film, Bachna Ae Haseeno. Thereafter, rest became history. Nevertheless, after what seemed to be some serious relationship goals between the couple and even their fans speculated about them walking down the aisle, the duo called it quits.

While the reason was unknown to many initially, it was much later when Deepika herself spilled beans about their breakup and cited Ranbir’s cassanova behaviour for the same. Moreover, she also mentioned how such a distressing period of time made her fall down in her career graph and succumb to depression. In her words:

“When I am in a relationship, I give it my all. I am totally committed and devoted. Somehow in all my relationships, it has been the guy who has strayed. You can ignore something if it happens once, but if it keeps happening, you have to realise that something is wrong."

Preity Zinta dated her IPL Team, Kings XI Punjab’s co-owner, Ness Wadia for a long time. Interestingly, it had been their shared love for the sport that had made them to own a team of their own. Unfortunately, this couple, too had an ugly fallout in their relationship at a time when they happened to be at the peak of their relationship.

Their embroilment took place during the IPL match in 2014, where Ness had reportedly threatened Preity publicly in the Wankhede Stadium. Their angry conversation had gone so far that the actress had to file a case against him. In her report, she mentioned:

“Ness intimidated me by saying he could make me disappear as I was a nobody and only an actress and he's a powerful person...this afore-stated incident in Mumbai in the Wankhede Stadium has left me shattered and fear for my life. He came up to me at my seat and started screaming and abusing me in front of everyone... He used foul language, which was demeaning to my reputation and character." 

#3. Sajid Khan broke up with Jacqueline Fernandez citing her as the reason for his failure of films

Filmmaker, Sajid Khan has been quite infamously known for his close proximity with scandals and controversies. Proof of the same was found at a time when he publicly dragged his relationship with Jacqueline Fernandez and broke up with her during the same.

According to Sajid, Jacqueline had been a demanding woman in his life, and therefore she was the reason for creating distractions in his professional life. While the ex-couple had stayed mum about their breakup for the longest time, it was much later when he spilled beans about the same, and mentioned:

“When you don't have a woman in your life, you don't have someone constantly nagging you, so you end up working better and are more focused. I went for a holiday with her for five days in the middle of making Himmatwala and felt so bad when the film didn't do well. For Humshakals, I have not taken a single holiday."

#4. Aishwarya Rai broke up with Salman Khan after publicly revealing his abusive alcoholic behaviour

Aishwarya Rai and Salman Khan’s break-up story has been one of the juiciest scandals ever in Bollywood. The duo had fallen head-over-heels in love while working on their first film together, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. While their relationship backstory needs no more introduction, it was quite shocking for their fans when the couple broke up.

While the reason behind the same was unclear initially, it was after Aishwarya’s shocking revelation about Salman’s dangerous abusive behaviour after alcohol consumption that brought to surface one of the nastiest break up battles. According to Aishwarya:

“After we broke up, he would call me and talk rubbish. He also suspected me of having affairs with my co-stars. I was linked up with everyone, from Abhishek Bachchan to Shahrukh Khan. There were times when Salman got physical with me, luckily without leaving any marks. And I would go to work as if nothing had happened.”

Shockingly, within four months of their marriage, Dimpy reportedly walked out of the Worli home and filed for divorce after she publicly levied allegations against Rahul for meting out domestic violence on her. In her words:

“Rahul beat me up early in morning, after waking me up to know the contents of a message that had beeped on my phone. When I asked him to go back to sleep, he flew into a rage and began hitting me. He punched, kicked and dragged me by hair."

But unexpectedly, just a year later, Sana announced on her social media handle that she broke up with Melvin, and cited Melvin’s repeated incidences of cheating on the actress as the reason behind the same. In an interview with the Times Of India, she mentioned:

“I broke up with Melvin because he was cheating on me. I had loved him with all my heart and was committed to him. What I got in return has disturbed and shaken me. I have developed anxiety issues and am dealing with depression ever since.”

Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan started dating each other secretly while shooting for their film, Kites. Nevertheless, gossip mongers were quick to make two out of two and soon enough their affair hit the headlines in no time. While the couple was mum about it for the longest time, it was Kangana who took an ugly turn in their relationship.

Opening up to a tabloid, she tagged Hrithik as her silly old ex, who had been spreading rumours of their broken relationship for the sake of getting attention. In her words:

“Yes, many lame rumours are doing rounds, even a dumb ass can tell where these rumours are coming from. I don't know why exes do silly things to get your attention. For me that chapter is over and I don't dig graves."

Thereafter, the ex-couple washed their dirty linen in public and exchanged in an angry battle of allegations and counter allegations. It went on to the extent where Kangana even mentioned Hrithik of emotionally raping her. On the other hand, Hrithik revealed how the actress had stalked him and sent him threatening emails frequently.

Akshay Kumar and Shilpa Shetty had been a hit jodi in the 90s decade of Bollywood. Their on-screen chemistry was a treat for their fans, and it even left people guessing whether the couple was actually dating in real life. Interestingly, this piece of gossip was indeed true, and the duo was madly in love with one another, to the extent of contemplating getting married soon.

However, Shilpa was left aghast when Akshay got married to Twinkle Khanna suddenly, breaking her trust and their love midway. Therefore, she too held back no barriers and in a public interview, defamed Akshay for having conveniently used and dumped her. In her words:

“Akshay Kumar used me and conveniently dropped me after he found someone else. The only person, I was upset with, was him. But I'm sure he'll get it all back. It's not easy to forget the past so soon, but I'm glad I've had the strength to move on. Today, he's a forgotten chapter as far as I'm concerned. I will never work with him again. Professionally, things have never looked better."
