14 Celebrities Who Were Blindsided By Divorce Filings
Divorce can be a tricky thing in Hollywood. For some celebrities, it comes completely out of nowhere. Just ask these 10 celebs who were completely blindsided by their spouse’s divorce filing!
14. Keshia Knight Pulliam
This past summer, Keshia Knight Pulliam was blindsided by her divorce from former NFL pro, Ed Hartwell. He filed for divorce just days after she announced she was pregnant! At the time, the couple had only been married for seven months. In an interview with ET online, Pulliam said there was no warning he wanted out of their relationship and she was completely blindsided. The Cosby Show star said he had been unfaithful during their marriage and that she was the one who brought up divorce early on in their marriage, but she decided to give him another chance. Months later, he turned around and filed on his own. “The part that hurt me the most when he filed for divorce was that he had asked me to give him another chance, and I was willing to do that and forgive him, for our family…That’s why I gave him one last chance, only for him to pullthe rug from under me and blindside me,” she said.
13. Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard were only married for 15 months when she filed for divorce in May 2016. Heard totally blindsided Depp with the divorce which was clear from the timing of it all. She filed three days after his mother passed away and just days before the premiere of his newest film, Alice Through the Looking Glass. The entire divorce played out in the media and got incredibly nasty with allegations thrown back and forth involving abuse, blackmail and even a request for a domestic violence restraining order. The divorce was finally settled in August after Depp agreed to pay Heard $7 million and both withdrew their accusations of black mail and abuse.
