High-Profile Celebrity Divorces through the Years
From one of the most celebrated American athletes to the current President of the US, we have compiled a list of famous divorces that caught the attention of the press in their day. According to the 2017 US Census data, about 23% of American marriages end in a divorce. But among celebrities, this percentage is higher, with 52% of the Hollywood couples eventually divorcing.
