Quickie Divorce: Celebs vs. Common Folk


While some celebrities are famous for their talent, these days a mediocre sex tape is enough get you on the cover of a magazine and cast in your own reality show. The public’s fascination with celebrity extends deeply into the romantic lives of stars and it seems like every time a celebrity gets married, the bets are on as to if they’ll get a quickie divorce and when the “D-day” comes to pass, the public appetite for all the juicy details can be insatiable.

The lives of the rich and famous are fascinating, and their multi-million-dollar quickie divorce settlements are equally compelling.  But, when you look under the surface of all the tabloid website alerts, you'll see that whether it's a quickie divorce, a divorce without lawyers or the old fashioned knock-down court battle, divorce is the great equalizer. Celebrities and common folk all feel the sting, and their breakups have a lot in common. In a piece titled "50 Unfiltered Celebrity Quotes About Their Divorces" published on Flipboard, common themes included:

  • The emotional pain that comes with divorce
  • Feelings of shame, guilt and confusion
  • The difficulty in knowing whether or not they were making the right decision
  • Dealing with how friends and family (and fans) are going to react
  • The sudden pressure of being a single parent and trying to successfully navigate co-parenting
  • The conflicting feelings of uncertainty and hope for what the future will bring
