Examples of poorly completed marriages, whose divorce lawsuits dragged on in court for up to several years, are the easiest to find, and where else but in Hollywood, but celebrities from BiH and our region are no exception. Whether the motives were financial in nature, child custody, or something else, these couples showed their ugliest traits during the divorce
Anyone who has been through a divorce will tell you that it is not a pleasant and easy experience at all. But there are those couples who mutually accept the fact that it is the end, and part in friendly relations as much as possible, and, on the other hand, we have those where it is not possible. The world of celebrities remembers numerous examples of ugly divorces that have entertained and shocked the public for years, but also those that divorced in peace.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Once a happy married couple Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, after the divorce decision in 2012, they had major disputes over the upbringing of their daughter Suri. The biggest problem was the Scientology community, of which Tom Cruise is a proud member, and which was joined after the wedding by Katie, who was raised in the Catholic spirit. Precisely because of everything she witnessed during her six years of marriage to the famous actor, Holmes wanted her daughter to have the right to choose, and to grow up as far as possible from the strict rules of Scientology. Because of all this, the former partners could not see each other live, but left all the arrangements to the lawyers after the divorce. Although the entire lawsuit was shrouded in secrecy, details of the deal surfaced, in which Katie agreed to keep her love life under control for the next five years after the divorce and not introduce her daughter to possible partners.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Passionate and explosive, as the then extramarital affair of the most famous acting couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie began in 2005, so their long-standing seemingly idyllic romance ended.

The divorce lawsuit and the custody agreement between the former spouses Jolie-Pitt have not yet been finalized. Angelina wanted to raise the six children together with full custody, and she wanted to remove the children’s father. But Pitt made every effort to prevent this from happening and in the end, four years later, however, there was a slight shift in the relationship. For the benefit of the children, they agreed to a compromise, but the details of the agreement, which the whole world is buzzing about, are still not known to the public.
Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Man
Musician Janet Jacksonin April 2017, she didn’t surprise the public too much with her divorce decision from Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Man, as it was her third failed marriage. But what later left the public unpleasantly surprised was the divorce lawsuit around which spears were broken. The divorce came just three months after the birth of son Eisse, so logically the biggest misunderstandings arose regarding the decision of who the little one would spend time with. What caused many to doubt true and sincere love is the fact that the couple signed a prenuptial agreement before marriage, which stated that if she lasted five years, Janet would become richer by a considerable amount. Only five years and two months after that, a divorce occurred, so it is written that Janet waited for two more months to pass, so as not to speculate that she was married just for the money.
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp

A full three years after the divorce that took place in 2017, there was an unexpected denouement in which Depp comes out of everything neither guilty nor guilty. The British “Daily Mail” got hold of an audio recording from 2015, which clearly shows actress Amber Heard admitting that she physically attacked her ex-husband Johnny Depp. It was Depp who ended up in hospital with bruises, blood and cigarette butts several times because of his abusive wife, while she was very loud in public in the fight against violence against women and for women’s rights.

That’s all I can say. Now I just want to talk about it positively. I do not regret for a moment that I was married to her.
