5 Loud Divorces That Amazed Everyone in 2021
Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West
The first couple we’d like to mention is Kim Kardashian West, a media celebrity, and Kanye West, a rapper and entrepreneur. The couple got married in 2014, bought a mansion in Los Angeles to live there, and had four kids together: daughters North and Chicago, and sons Saint and Psalm. The couple seemed to be one of the strongest and most extraordinary in the world show business for the last decade, yet they couldn’t settle the disagreements they had over a long time.
2021 appeared to be a tough year for them: in January, Kim announced she is going to file for divorce as she doesn’t see ways to make her relationship with Kanye get better. In February, it became known that the case was started and that the couple did not manage to restore their marriage. Later in April 2021, Kim announced that they are seeking divorce since the discrepancies they face are insurmountable: this reason is one of the most frequent grounds for divorce in Georgia as well. As of December 2021, Kim requested their marriage to be dissolved and her status to be announced as ‘legally single’.
Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish
The actress and director have been together since 2011. They met during the ‘Big Sur’ shooting: Kate was playing the role of Billie, while Michael directed the movie. They fell in love and got married in 2013. Their love story seemed to be perfect, yet the couple decided to split up in 2021.
The news became known via Kate’s Instagram, where she published a touching post with a picture of herself and Michael laughing and kissing. She mentioned that they are still close as much as they were on their wedding day, but their relationship is over. She emphasized the deep gratitude they feel for each other and said their bond was ‘true love’.
The couple did not have kids, so their divorce was finalized peacefully.
Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman
The singer and the start of the ‘Love’ drama, Zoe and Karl, started dating back in 2016. Since that time, they were inseparable which continued after the wedding that took place in Zoe’s father’s mansion in 2019. The couple was quite happy together but all of a sudden their relationship failed. Zoe submitted her divorce claim at the end of 2020, and in August, 2021 the couple was announced divorced.
A few weeks after the procedure, the rumors about Zoe dating the actor Channing Tatum arose.
Krista Joiner and Xzibit
Another couple whose split-up frustrated the publicity is Krista Joiner, an entrepreneur, and Xzibit, rapper and TV star. They have been together for more than twenty years since 2001, and no one could predict they will break up.
Krista and Xzibit met in 2001 and dated from that year until they got married in 2014. The couple had two kids, Gatlyn and Xavier (the latter died aged 11 days due to birth before the due date). Despite the deep grief that their family faced at that time, they managed to get through it. However, in 2021, it became known that Krista requested to be divorced from Xzibit. As of November 2021, Xzibit stated in his Instagram account that he was healing after the split-up and was about to record a new song about that.
Melinda and Bill Gates
The last but not least couple to mention in our overview is Melinda and Bill Gates. These two are some of the most popular philanthropists who influence the media a lot, so their marriage dissolution was covered in many news resources.
The couple met 35 years ago in Microsoft and got married 7 years later, in 1994. Since that time, Bill and Melinda created one of the most powerful charity foundations, became parents of three kids, and earned over $150 million. Their divorce was finalized in August 2021, and neither of the couples expressed the need for support from their ex.
As for their foundation, the couple stated they will attempt to run it together. The two-year trial period aims to check whether Bill and Melinda can work together for the good of their organization.
