Not everyone who says "yes" to a proposal ends up saying "I do." According to a 2013 research by The Wedding Report (via The New York Times), around 13% of engagements — roughly a quarter million — do not end in marriage. When worries grow, some couples may decide to postpone their wedding rather than cancel it completely. Other couples, on the other hand, may opt to go ahead with their wedding plans despite their doubts.
While celebrity couples aren't precisely like the rest of us, they aren't immune to marital problems. According to the Marriage Foundation (via The Telegraph), prominent people are roughly twice as likely to divorce as the general population.
1.Birdman and Tony Braxton
Toni Braxton revealed how she and rapper Birdman met during an interview on The Wendy Williams Show in November 2018. Before they became romantically involved, the singer said that they had been friends for almost 17 years. They eventually got engaged, and Braxton told Wendy Williams that she and her fiance hadn't set a date yet, but Birdman was planning something "before the end of the year."
Despite the fact that neither Birdman nor Braxton have announced a breakup, it appears all too plausible. According to E! News, Birdman posted an Instagram Story in January 2019 with the caption "It's over..." Eek. Shortly after, he erased the message and took down all of his other social media accounts.
2.Kiefer Sutherland and Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts played as the female lead in The Runaway Bride in 1999, a role she was perfectly suited for. Roberts gained real-life experience as a runaway bride in the early 1990s. People magazine predicted that the wedding of 23-year-old Roberts and 24-year-old actor Kiefer Sutherland would be "the fantasy wedding of the decade" in July 1991. Roberts, however, called off their wedding just two days before it was to take place.
3.Taylor Kinney and Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga was busy organizing her wedding to actor Taylor Kinney in March 2016. The singer said on Ryan Seacrest's radio show (via E! News) that she was planning a "family-style wedding," contrary to popular belief. "We are not planning anything worth writing about," she continued. Her entire family was extremely involved in the preparations. "I suppose if I hadn't let my mother do this with all of us and my family — if I hadn't let my mother arrange the wedding, the women in my life would definitely kill me," she joked.
Nonetheless, only four months after their engagement ended, the pair decided to call it quits.
4.jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
Do you recall Bennifer? Sigh. How could anyone forget Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck in the early aughts? Despite the fact that the movie Gigli should've given us a hint that these two wouldn't get along, we were ecstatic when they announced their engagement. What happened when they decided to postpone their wedding? For a while, that was the topic of conversation at the water cooler.
Lopez and Affleck put off their California wedding just four days before it was set to take place. "We have decided to postpone the date due to the increased media attention surrounding our wedding," the couple said in a statement to People. Despite being postponed at first, the ceremony never took place.
5.Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow existed before Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. Pitt proposed in 1996 to the super couple, who had been dating since 1995. However, it's debatable how far the two went with their wedding planning. People reported in the late 1990s that "one source familiar with the couple's plans" said the planning never got that far. The "hush-hush wedding," however, was reported to be slated for late summer in The Hamptons – ironically, where Paltrow and Brad Falchuk would finally marry. Paltrow's visit to bridal gown guru Vera Wang is also mentioned. Hmm. Despite this, in 1997, the two called off their engagement.
6.Naya Rivera and Big Sean
Glee actress Naya Rivera lauded her fiancé, rapper Big Sean, in late January 2014. "I think he'll make a terrific father eventually," she continued, "and I think he'll make an excellent husband." Despite this, the pair split up in early April of the following year. Sean "made the difficult decision to call the wedding off," according to a statement obtained by E! News at the time.
