And you thought your family was dysfunctional. The truth of the matter is that when it comes to dysfunctional relationships, Hollywood has more than its fair share. From cheating spouses and domestic violence to drug abuse and lavish spending, celebrities find a lot to fight about. While very few celebrity couples stay together, there are some that just make you shake your head. Here are some of the most dysfunctional relationships in Hollywood.
1) Ike and Tina Turner
Ike’s controlling ways and violent tendencies are no secret; Tina has spoken openly about the abuse she experienced at the hands of her ex-husband. However, nothing is quite as dysfunctional as Ike’s recollection of events. He said, “There have been times when I punched her to the ground without thinking. But I have never beat (sic) her.”
2) Chris Brown and Rihanna
Another relationship destroyed by domestic violence, Chris Brown and Rihanna have both openly talked about the violence in their relationship. Interestingly, though, the couple still plays with the idea of getting back together.
3) Madonna and Sean Penn
This couple ended their four-year marriage after Sean Penn was arrested and charged with felony domestic assault in 1988.
4) Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne
Back in the day, Ozzy and Sharon admittedly beat each other senseless. Coupled with Ozzy’s substance abuse issues, this violence should have put an end to their marriage, but it didn’t. They’re still going strong and are one of the most dysfunctional couples in Hollywood.
5) Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger
It’s what happened after the demise of their eight-year marriage that showed the full extent of dysfunction in this relationship. After splitting up, Kim reportedly leaked a tape of Alec yelling at his daughter, an act that led to Alec calling the actress unstable and irrational.
6) Eminem and Kim Mathers
After rapping about Kim’s drug addiction and even murdering her once in a song, Eminem has publicly flaunted the issues in this relationship.
7) Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown
It didn’t take long for Bobby to pull Whitney down in the mud with him. The star, who had a lengthy criminal and drug record when they met, soon left Whitney bruised, battered, and addicted to cocaine.
8) Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee
Married just 96 hours after meeting, this Hollywood couple aired their dirty laundry by shooting and selling their very own sex tape. They’ve been married and divorced three times in total.
9) Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson
Their fights were highly publicized in the tabloids as were their breakup tweets to each other. For the short time they were together, this relationship was extremely volatile and dysfunctional.
10) Jon and Kate Gosselin
As if eight kids weren’t enough to cause dysfunction, Kate’s shrill, controlling ways and Jon’s cheating left us all wondering who to feel sorry for.
