Breakups are hard, and the difficulty intensifies when they happen in the public eye. However, some celebrities found comfort in exacting revenge as a form of emotional release. Whether through tell-all memoirs or vicious legal battles, these well-known individuals have resorted to extreme measures to retaliate against their former flames, driven by grudges or injustices.
Any guy foolish enough to get involved with Taylor must know that if he wrongs her, he’ll end up in a song.
Just ask Joe Jonas (among others). Taylor penned Mr. Perfectly Fine about how Jonas dumped her over the phone in 25 seconds.
Who can forget the infamous Cry Me A River video featuring a lookalike of the Trousersnake’s ex, Britney Spears, who is said to have cheated on him?
Justin clapped back with this revenge video that is all about that – revenge.
“I feel like he pooed on my soul, so I pooed on his sole”
American comedienne Tiffany Haddish had a unique way of exacting her pound of flesh when her ex cheated on her. First, she pooped in his shoe. Yes, you read that right. She squatted and dropped a log in his brand new Jordans and waited until he slipped his foot in it before making a quick exit!
Sticking on poop for a second (sorry, guys). Those who followed the infamous Depp vs. Heard trial in 2022 will be familiar with Heard‘s revenge tactic when her marriage to Johnny Depp started to break down.
She allegedly pooped in his bed and blamed it on the dog.
Kim Kardashian’s ex, Reggie, didn’t take the breakup gracefully.
Not only did he embark on a fling with her then-boyfriend Kanye West’s ex, Amber Rose, but he also married a Kim lookalike.
Never one to tiptoe around his (or anyone else’s feelings), Eminem penned a song that outed his mother’s behavior when he was growing up. The aptly named Cleaning Out My Closet detailed his mother’s shortcomings as a parent in his usual sweary, no-nonsense way.
Stay on Nicki’s right side! She might take it out on your prize possession! Just ask her ex.
After an argument, Nicki allegedly smashed up ex-Safaree Samuels’ car with a baseball bat. And not just any vehicle – a Mercedes. She also reportedly threw all his clothing in the trash.
Actor Sudeikis decided to wait until the perfect moment to plan a revenge move on ex Olivia Wilde.
He waited until she was on stage at a CinemaCon presentation to serve her papers explaining that he was seeking custody of their children.
The deranged rapper publicly announced his disdain for ex-Kim Kardashian’s new partner, the former SNL star Pete Davidson, by more or less threatening his life.
West used his Instagram account to post a series of now-deleted images detailing the “death” of Pete Davidson.
Has-been pop-punk star Deryck Whibley (of Sum41 fame) made a public pop at his ex, Avril Lavigne, by dressing up as her for Halloween.
His partner dressed up as Avril’s then-husband, Chad Kroeger. Kroeger clapped back with a tweet to Whibley saying they were “going to dress up as him, but all the parties were celebrity themed.” Touché, Chad!
Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes
The now-deceased TLC singer made global headlines in 1994 when she accidentally burned down the mansion of ex-Andre Rison. What started as just setting his sneakers ablaze in the bathtub quickly got out of hand and damaged much of the property. Lopes was under the influence of alcohol at the time and allegedly burned the shoes after Rison “beat” her.
Rose took to Twitter to give us all mental images we didn’t need after her highly publicized breakup with Kanye West.
