2 years ago

Breaking up is a healthy way to deal with challenges with your significant other when things get rough and start to crumble. Despite all the fame and fortune, celebrity power couples also juggle the same relationship problems as we have behind the limelight. However, in all this heartache, one thing is for sure — second chances sometimes are worth a try!

Bright Side decided to take a trip down memory lane and share great love stories from our favorite celebrities on how they got through a rough patch and found themselves in each other’s arms again.

1. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen

We wouldn’t be listening and singing to the lyrics of All of Me on a loop if John Legend and Chrissy Teigen had broken up for good. John revealed in an interview that he and Chrissy briefly broke up one time because he just missed the single life. It didn’t take long for the 2 to reconnect with each other and tie the knot twice!

2. Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith

The duo has always been seen as “couple goals” since their marriage back in 1997. However, even this iconic couple was not immune to hiccups in their married life. Jada confessed in her online show that she was seeing a younger man 6 years ago when she and Will were secretly separated.

Despite what she had done, their enduring love for each other overshadowed their marital woes. Will welcomed her back with open arms and trusted their relationship again the second time around.

3. Mark Consuelos and Kelly Ripa

Mark and Kelly’s more than 20 years of romance quietly began when sparks flew during their screen test for the TV series All My Children. The lovebirds called it quits a year later, but still had to work together on the show. Mark couldn’t handle it and proposed, and they eventually decided to get hitched on a night out together in Las Vegas.

4. Beyoncé and Jay-Z

Even the ultimate power couple in the music industry was not safe from dating drama. The diva and multi-award-winning rapper cozied up during a music collaboration, and the rest is history. However, it was not all a fairy tale for the 2 as they made headlines with a brief split in 2005 and almost a divorce because of cheating allegations against Jay-Z.

According to Jay-Z, it turned out that coming clean and helping out in their marriage was the key. Now, the 2 have been inseparable and are stronger together with 3 adorable kids!

5. Offset and Cardi B

These rappers make an iconic duo with an equally iconic love life! Famous for their public on-and-off surprises, like a secret wedding, a cheating scandal, a divorce, and the calling off of a divorce, there’s no stopping the 2 of them. Now, they share 2 little ones, leading love into their household.

6. Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne

The 40-year marriage between rock and roll legend Ozzy Osbourne and TV personality Sharon Osbourne has had its fair share of twists and turns. From meeting each other and falling in love while on music tours, it wasn’t until 33 years afterward that they drew a line between each other.

However, Sharon decided to face the music and gave Ozzy a second chance. When Ozzy was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, Sharon and their 3 children have made sure they are in every step of his recovery.

7. Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union

The actress truly has a forgiving soul when she and her husband, basketball superstar Dwyane Wade, worked it out after the latter had a son while they were on a break. A year later, the 2 have continued facing challenges and staying in love together with their big family.

8. Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink

The makeup artist and stylist to the stars and McDreamy himself have been married for more than 2 decades already! But those 22 years were not easy for the 2, as they called it quits for almost a year back in 2015. Luckily, a trip to Paris ignited the sparks again, and the 2 have been supportive of each other since then.

9. Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner

The beauty mogul and rapper were on-and-off for quite some time before sealing the deal with a sweet family of 4. They only had one long break in 2019 when Kylie and Travis split after nearly 2 years together.

The pair were co-parenting their daughter, Stormi when they decided to give their love another go. Now, Stormi is a big sister to her little brother.

10. Michael and Nicole Phelps

You know you’ve laid eyes on a good-looking pair when you see an Olympian and a beauty queen together. However, even beautiful people can be subjects of heartbreak. Before their engagement in 2015, Michael and Nicole broke up and hated each other.

It only took time and emotional growth for the 2 to realize they still felt something for each other. The hate faded away, and love took over. Michael and Nicole now celebrate their milestones with their 3 boys!

11. Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor

From having an instant connection while filming a TV series, Ben and Christine were going on 18 years of being together and sharing 2 kids. However, the comedic actor and actress announced their split because they were growing apart while Ben secretly battled a cancer diagnosis and dealt with his father’s death.

Luckily, they were still game to continue their love story by accepting their differences and reuniting 2 years later.

12. Billy Porter and Adam Smith

Indeed, love wins and conquers all challenges. The Broadway star and fashion mogul can attest to that! The 2 briefly dated, but eventually split because they didn’t know if it was serious or just a fling.

However, they both realized that they had made a huge mistake years later, and Adam confessed to Billy that he had always loved him. The 2 just recently celebrated 5 years after exchanging I Dos.

13. Snoop Dogg and Shante Broadus

The love of these high school sweethearts is so strong that it has helped them stay together for the past 2 decades. But sometimes, love is not enough. Snoop Dogg once tried to divorce Shante due to irreconcilable differences, but had a change of heart.

The hitmaker and his manager-slash-wife renewed their vows in 2018 and now enjoy their music and family successes together.

14. Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman

After celebrating 30 years of blissful married life, the comedic duo took some time apart when rumors of Danny’s affair went public. They handled it quite nicely without a messy breakup and fell for each other again. Even though they do not live together anymore, they still see each other often and have promised not to divorce.
