Bye Bae Blues: Top 7 wildest celebrity break-ups of 2017

7. ALL EYES ON THE DO’ : NICKI MINAJ & MEEK MILL

Nicki Minaj meek mill

Luckily for Nicki and Meek, most Hip-Hop heads forgot they even broke up at the tippy-top of 2017, thanks to all the other high profiling break-ups that followed throughout the year.

On January 5, the Queens-bred rapstar took to Twitter announcing her decision to permanently end things with her “I’m A Boss” boo of a little more than a year.

“To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year. Love you,” Nicki tweeted out to her millions of stunned supporters.

The “All Eyes On You” duo’s parting of ways came after rumors surfaced, accusing Meek of enjoying a side-romance with a Philadelphia boutique owner.

More drawn-on eyebrows were raised in suspicion when the “Super Base” rapper spent her birthday vacation to Turks and Caicos alone, and when she made solo moves on New Years Eve.

Meek’s alleged mistress denied a sexual relationship between the two of them.

In the months since their break-up, Nicki had been romantically linked to her fellow Queens representative, Nas.

Meek, briefly enjoyed the company of a lesser known baddie, before being sentenced to jail for a 2-4 year bid for probation violation.

He is currently serving out his time in Pennsylvania’s SCI Chester.

6. MESSY JESSE

Jesse Williams divorce

Everyone’s light eyed play boyfriend, Jesse Williams, broke our hearts by playing his wife, Aryn Drake Lee, and pursing a romance with actress Minka Kelly.

After 13 years together and five years of marriage, the Grey’s Anatomy star issued a divorce petition against the mother of his two small children, Sadie and Maceo, on the grounds of irreconcilable differences.

Soon after filing, rumors sparked claiming he’d been creeping with Minka for more than a year before moving to divorce Aryn, in April.

As time marched on, an arduous custody dispute between the former love birds erupted, seeing Jesse accuse his estranged boo of methodically limiting his time with their kids.

In response, Aryn informed the courts that her babies were emotionally and psychologically damaged by witnessing actor/activist’s allege rage, and being subjected to his “revolving door” of lady friends.

In the end, the feuding ex-baes reached a custody agreement, seeing them each with joint legal custody of their kids.

All Jesse and Aryn’s communication has been restricted to the “Family Wizard” application, where they’re only allowed to discuss the health, education, and welfare of heir brood.

Aryn was awarded $100K in child support, and received $60K, from Jesse, for her legal fees.

5. NAYA RIVERA PUT THEM PAWWS

Naya Rivera divorce

It’s safe to deem a marriage DEADDDD when one person is leaving in handcuffs and the other’s face is leaking blood… At least as much was true in the case of Naya River and Ryan Dorsey.

Instead of a snapping smiley selfie over an oven-fresh turkey, the 30-year-old gully Glee actress found herself posing for a droopy-faced mugshot, on Thanksgiving weekend, after being arrested on domestic battery charges for allegedly beating the burned biscuits out of her husband.

During her drunken attack on Ryan—which went down during while they visited his family in West Virginia—the actress was said to have busted his bottom lip open during an argument over their 2-year-old son.

Immediately, Naya—who, in 2014, married Ryan three months after ending her engagement to Big Sean— was taken into police custody, where she was later arraigned and ultimately released on $1,000 bond.

A few days after sis’ arrest, audio of Ryan’s call to the cop surfaced.

Per the recording, the actor informs the dispatch of his ‘bout it ‘bout it bride’s inebriation, and claims she was “getting physical” with him before he managed to escape her violence.

In December, Naya filed for divorce from Ryan—for the second time— in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The pair has reportedly opted for joint custody of their kid.

4. SH** IS GETTING SCARY AF…

Mel b divorce

Sex, drugs, and physical abuse allegations fueled the break-up between former Spice Girl, Mel B, and her husband, Stephen Belafonte.

In March, the 41-year-old British bombshell filed for divorce from now-estranged hubby of a decade, citing irreconcilable differences as the cause of their permanent separation.

From there, Mel secured a restraining order against Stephen, claiming he’d subjected her to years of violent abuse, forced her to engaged in threesomes, and got their nanny pregnant.

After months of denying his “Wanna Be” singing ex-wifey’s allegations, and crying broke and homeless to the courts, Stephen was awarded $40,000/a month in spousal support from Mel…Which also saw her ordered to cut him a one-time check of $140,000 for his legal fees.

In September, the pop star-turned-America’s Got Talent judge was accused of felony witness intimidation, sparked by a woman’s claims Mel sent threatening text messages in attempt to scare her or of testifying against her, in court, about Stephen’s alleged abuse.

Luckily for the “Say You’ll Be There” songstress, prosecutors decided against charging her with witness tampering.

A few weeks ahead of Thanksgiving, Mel withdrew her domestic violence order of protection against her hubby, which created a clearing for them to agree on joint custody of their 6-year-old daughter as well as the terms of Stephen’s spousal support… Ol’ boy even agreed to NEVER release any of his ex-wife’s sex tapes.

WHAT A PRINCE..

Last week, Mel too cutting Stephen out of her life a step further by literally removing the tattooed chuck of her skin that once bore his name.

BOOOP…

3. MARY CAN’T DO KENDU, NO MO’

Mary J blige divorce

Though Mary J. Blige filed for divorce from her funds-hungry husband, Kendu Isaacs, back in 2016… The “No More Drama” singer’s spousal support drama has seeped into 2017, with her ex attempting to suck her pockets alllllllll the way dry.

In response to his wife’s moves to forever end their holy matrimony, Kendu filed legal documents against Mary, seeking over $129K/ a month in spousal support.

Per his request, the “Not Gon Cry” vocalist’s former sweetheart/manager said he need the staggering amount in order to financially care for his elderly parents, adult children from a previous relationship, as well as his own housing, car maintenance, traveling expenses, rental properties, and food.

Kendu claimed he was unable to provide for himself or secure work in the wake of rumors his extramarital affair with Mary’s protege, Starshell, played a major role in their pending divorce.

In July, a judge ordered the “Deep Inside” crooner pay her ex $30K a month in temporary spousal support, plus give him coins in retroactive support and pay his legal fees…bring Kendu’s check to a whopping $235K.

Later, homie attempted to increase his month support income to $65K, but a judge denied his request.

After being hit with a multi-million dollar federal tax lien, Mary filed documents asking Kendu to pay her $6 million dollars to cover his share of their debts.

So far, the judge hasn’t made a ruling in the singer’s request.

2. BLUEBIRD OF BYE BYE

Tamar and Vince

Cheating, domestic violence, and an alleged side baby ended up being just a few of the unsavory ingredients in the mess-pot that is the break up between Tamar Braxton and Vincent Hebert.

Just a few months before reaching their 9th year of marriage, the “My Man” singer filed for divorce from her husband/manager, in October, citing irreconcilable difference as her reason for budding him an official farewell.

In the wake of their split, Tamar’s mom, Evelyn Braxton, unveiled the alleged abuse in their marriage by publicly begging Vince to keep his hand off of her child.

“It was definitely a volatile relationship. This has been going on for years,“ the Braxton Family Values starring matriarch said.

“Everybody saw Vince as a knight and shining armor, [but] behind closed doors that’s a horse of another color,” she added. “I’m tired of [Tamar] being abused and misused.”

Evelyn went on to confirm rumors that Vince assaulted the “Love And War” chanteuse during a 2016 incident, in which police were called to an Atlanta hotel to break up a fight between the power couple.

On December 30, Tamar hopped on Instagram revealing her estranged hubby is expecting a baby with “his whore.”

“Vincent Herbert is having a baby and his whore decided to tell me about it tonight!! That’s stupid broke ass whore should check public records on Christmas before she goes through with it!!,” an understandably pissed Tamar said in reference to Vince’s Dec. 25th arrest.

“He called back (despite his protection order parentheses 🙄)begging and lying…like he’s handing out with joe and Rocco (from BET) oh yeah..🙄 that’s credible..no shade..however, before u judge me know the FACTS!! He’s a real price of work!! Smh happy new year folks!! Ladies and gentlemen know threat 2028 is a FRESH start and If is can leave this list you can leave yours too🤷🏽‍♀️.

So far, Vincent had neither confirmed nor denied his supposed violence against Tamar nor has he publicly commented on his alleged incoming love child.

1. KEEPING UP WITH THE BREAK UP

Blac Chyna Rob Kardashian

Social media served as center stage for 2017’s most OD celebrity mess: the break up of Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna.

Turning an average Wednesday in July into a treacherous tornado of digital drags and tormenting trolls, Dream Kardashian’s famous parents held nothing back as they maliciously exposed one another’s wrongdoings across Snap Chat, Instagram, and Twitter.

Armed with a series of incriminating text-message screenshots, nasty-girl nude, dirty drug abuse allegations and messy cheating receipts, Rob Kardashian hopped on IG blasting his 29-year-old then-fiancé for her many relationship infractions… after she went public with her new boo, at the time.

Kim Kardashian’s 30-year-old brother took his vengeance a step further by sharing intimate pictures of Blac Chyna, in the nude, and on a hospital bed preparing to undergo over $100K plastic surgery after birthing their daughter.

As a result of Rob’s angry posts, the ex-stripper—alongside famed attorney Lisa Bloom—filed a 7-figure revenge porn lawsuit against him, accused the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star of abuse, had sought a domestic violence restraining order against him.

In response, Rob and his clan of K-named sisters have clapped back at Chyna with official claims of abuse, vandalism, and child neglect.

Most recently, Chyna agreed to drop her restraining order request in exchange for $20K/a month child support payments from Rob.

She’s in the throes of suing his entire family for allegedly using their influence of the E! Network to have her reality series Rob And Chyna prematurely cancelled.

The Kardashians have reportedly denied sis’ assertions, and blame HER for the show’s ending.

LAAAAAAWWWWWD….

With a bevy of our other fave relationships either knocking at deaths door or all the way done for–such as Janet Jackson and her billionaire bae, Mariah Carey and her well-to-do bae, Nipsey Hussle and Lauren London(kinda), Jhene Aiko and her hubby–It’s hard to say if any celebrity marriage can truly stand the test of time.
