Celebrities, they are just like us. They meet someone, fall in love and, at times, break up. The only difference, of course, is the millions of dollars in the bank account and the hundreds of cameras they point at her all the time. So it’s no surprise, then, that there has been a long list of actors and musicians who have publicly tried to reconcile with their ex-wives, but were met with heartbreak.
1) Offset and Cardi B
Fans were understandably upset when Cardi B initially announced her split from rapper Offset over allegations of cheating. It seemed like a highly publicized relationship was on the way to divorce, until Offset tried to straighten it out.
Back in 2018, the Atlanta rapper broke Cardi’s performance by having him on stage with a “Take Me Back Cardi” flower show. If that wasn’t enough, he added to his feelings by saying, “In front of the world, I love you.”
2) Lamar Odom and Khloé Kardashian
The Kardashians find a way to stay in the headlines for one reason or another. Back in 2016, that split was caused by the split between former NBA player Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. After a very public divorce and a period of rehabilitation, Odom appeared on the daytime talk show “The Doctors” where he expressed his desire to improve things with his ex-wife at the time. When asked what he was looking forward to in the future, he said, “Honestly, I want my wife back.”
3) Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus
What happens when two famous musicians break up with each other? You can get more music, of course. After their split in 2007, Nick Jonas wrote a song called “Wedding Bells” after rumors started circulating about Miley’s engagement to Liam Hemsworth. Just to give you an idea of how heartbreak Jonas is, here’s what the lyrics read: “No, I don’t want to love / If it’s not you / I don’t want to hear the wedding bells prove / We couldn’t have tried one last time.”
4) Robin Thicke and Paula Patton
The “Blurred Lines” singer was seen sad in all his looks after announcing his split from Paula Patton. To win her back, Thicke recorded an entire album dedicated to his estranged wife, with songs called “Forever Love,” “Get Her Back” and “You’re My Fantasy.” Unfortunately, things didn’t quite work out as Thicke had expected them to.
5) Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
They say Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had to walk so that Kim and Kanye could run. Back in the day, the couple’s relationship was discussed again, again everywhere from school cafes to major news channels. So when the relationship seemed to finally come to an end, Biebs came out with an honest piano song “No One Like Us” as a message to Gomez. Lyrics of the song that says: “Because nothing can ever replace you / Nothing can make me feel like you do There’s nothing like us, there’s nothing like you and you I gave you everything, baby, all I had to give / Girl, Why are you pushing me away?”
