Can marriage fix an alcoholic, gambling addict, drug addict or aggressive man? These stars had little chance …
Divorced Jennifer Garner in 2015
This handsome Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez and his other exes forgave everything: spree, casinos and strip clubs all night long … But still, the girls ran away from the actor - everyone except Jennifer Garner, who managed to bring Affleck down the aisle.
However, Jen did not deceive herself with the expectation that the actor would put her at the forefront and improve. Garner took care of the house and three children and supported her husband's projects, remaining in the shadows. For a long time, she turned a blind eye to Ben's problems with alcohol and gambling, but once, when he once again escaped from the rehabilitation center, the cold-blooded beauty's patience collapsed. In 2015, the couple announced a divorce.
Divorced Madonna in 1988 and Robin Wright in 2010
The actor's track record includes Scarlett Johansson, Charlize Theron and Madonna, to whom Penn was married from 1985 to 1988. Later, from 1996 to 2010, the actor was married to Robin Wright, who gave birth to two children from the actor. Wright has gone through a lot: betrayal, scandals, breakups and reconciliation. Their marriage was like a love affair, which ended painfully - and for an abandoned husband. But the story of Sean Penn and Madonna was not called anything other than a "hellish marriage". The couple had enough problems: Sean's alcoholism, his propensity for aggression and violence, jealousy and problems with self-control.
Brad Pitt and other stars, whose wedding fell through on the eve of the celebration
Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow met on the set of the movie "Seven", on the set they had a whirlwind romance. The couple even had the same style of dress at the time! The upcoming wedding of two sex symbols seemed like an event of the year, but Brad and Gwyneth suddenly parted ways. Rumor has it that the reason was the bride's infidelity: she allegedly had an affair with colleague John Hannah on the set of "Beware, the doors are closing."
During his relationship with Madonna, Sean repeatedly ended up in the police for fights, and also underwent numerous rehabilitation courses. At first, Madonna was attracted by the passionate temperament of her husband, but in the end the singer herself declared domestic violence and humiliation. Madonna was hospitalized several times. For example, once Sean beat her … with a baseball bat. However, having filed for divorce, Madonna took the police statements, and 27 years after the divorce, in 2015, she even stated that Penn never hurt her: never hit me, never tied me up, never used any physical violence."
Divorced Britney Spears in 2007
Kevin pulled the nerves of not only the famous singer. So, one of the reasons for the discord with Britney was Kevin's indifference to family matters and the upbringing of two sons. Most of the time the dancer spent in nightclubs and shopping, and during the divorce, Federline demanded fabulous alimony from Britney, calling her ex-wife unbalanced and crazy. By the way, Federline went to the star from the singer Cher Jackson, who at that time was pregnant with her second child from Kevin.
Divorced Robin Moore in 2011
The one who knows how to surprise is Mel Gibson. The actor and director lived with Robin Moore for twenty-five years, having given birth to seven children. Their family in Hollywood was called exemplary, but in reality, Gibson was not okay. So, in 2006, the actor found himself at the center of a scandal related to his drinking. Gibson was stopped for drunk driving and reacted in unexpected ways to his arrest. “Are you a Jew ?! Gibson asked the cop.“Jews always start all wars in this world!” The officer actually turned out to be a Jew … Mel Gibson was sentenced to three years probation and rehabilitation at the Society of Alcoholics Anonymous. It was then that the fans of the actor remembered that Gibson already had problems with the law: in 1984, he was deprived of his license for drunk driving for three months. Six years later, the actor openly expressed his homophobic views, and issued a demand to apologize: “I will apologize when hell freezes over. They can fuck off. " Yes, that was Gibson, the "exemplary" family man.
In 2011, it became known that Mel Gibson was leaving his wife for the Russian pianist Oksana Grigorieva, who eventually also suffered from the actor's alcoholism and aggression. The court forbade Gibson to approach Grigorieva and her daughter from him.

Actress Yulia Yudintseva and actor Alexei Panin lived in a civil marriage until 2008. The separation of the couple turned into a loud and dirty scandal, but the actor's family life cannot be called calm. After the success of the films "Down House", "Don't Even Think" and "Blind Man's Man", the actor stopped receiving large offers, which may have influenced his passion for alcohol. Or maybe the reason for the stagnation in his career was alcohol - now you can't figure it out, one thing is clear: Panin was carried. In 2005, on the set of the film "4 taxi drivers and a dog - 2" Panin got into a fight with the film's director Fyodor Popov. After the divorce, the actor relaxed completely and began to brawl in restaurants all over the country: in Tuapse he smashed a hotel bar, in Vyazniki he beat dishes, hooligans about trifles in the city of Svobodny and Blagoveshchensk, and ran naked in Belogorsk. After the completion of these devastating tours, the actor confessed to being bisexual and started a war with his ex-wife for custody of his daughter Anya. As a result, after 10 years of litigation, Panin won custody.

Few remember the actor's romance with Sarah Jessica Parker. And the couple was together for 7 years! An obstacle on the way to a happy marriage was the actor's serious problems with hard drugs. No matter how hard Parker tried to influence the groom's addiction, it was all pointless.
But the singer and model Deborah Falconer was not afraid to marry Robert, and he continued the brawl - but already in the status of a husband.
In 1996, the actor was sentenced to three years probation and compulsory treatment, but a year later Downey Jr. did not appear for a drug test in the body, for which he spent six months in prison. In 1999, the actor again received a term - this time a real one, but for exemplary behavior he served only a year out of three prescribed.
Numerous arrests finished off Deborah, and she left, taking Indio's son. The guy, by the way, also had major drug problems, but he managed to avoid trial and undergo rehabilitation.
Divorced Leslie Manville, Uma Thurman, Dona Fiorentino and Alexandra Edenborough
The reason for all four divorces of the British actor was his alcohol addiction. Unable to influence Oldman's spree, his second wife, actress Uma Thurman, left him in 1992 after two years of troubled marriage. Oldman met his next wife in a rehabilitation clinic, but his comrades in misfortune did not manage to build a harmonious relationship. And the fourth marriage to jazz singer Alexandra Edenborough did not last long, even though Gary managed to tie.
