7 Celebrity Couples Who Called Off Their Divorces
In Tinseltown, celebrities get married and divorced all the time. It is the one constant – that and scandals. Sometimes celebrities file for divorce only to have the divorce petition thrown out so that they reconcile. Some of these couples are so dramatic that they reconcile after filing only to file again. Regular people can’t afford all the legal fees that come with this sort of indecision, but celebrities can and they do! We have a list of 7 celebrity couples who have filed for divorce only to call it off. Some of these couples reconciled and stayed together for good, while others filed again and went through with it. You’d think that when they filed for divorce the first time they would’ve been sure – apparently not!
7. Snoop Dogg and Shante Broadus
Snoop Dogg filed for divorce from Shante Broadus, his high school sweetheart, in 2004; however, they reconciled months later and he withdrew the legal petition. According to him, the music industry is what tore apart their relationship – that and his infidelity. “I fell back in love with my wife and kids. A lot of times you get cloudy. This music industry is a mother, man, and it’ll take your vision and blur it,” he told MTV.
During Snoop and his wife’s separation, their daughter Cori was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder. This is what ended up bringing them back together. “Without (Snoop), I don’t know what I’d have done. It’s amazing how this all turned out. We were gonna get a divorce. But we wouldn’t have gotten through it (the lupus diagnosis) that way,” Shante told People magazine. “That’s what it boiled down to. Cori’s lupus showed us we need to be together forever,” Snoop added.
6. Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen
Charlie Sheen’s relationships with women have always been rocky. When he was married to Denise Richards, it was no different. Things got so bad between these two that she filed for divorce while she was pregnant with their daughter Sam in March 2005. They briefly tried to reconcile for the sake of their daughters; however, things failed to get any better. Richards re-filed her divorce petition and sought a restraining order against Sheen, alleging that he had threatened her life.
These two have been divorced for years now and, while they are sometimes on friendly terms, it takes the drop of a hat for things to get nasty. Sheen has since married and divorced Brooke Mueller and was engaged to a former porn star by the name of Brett Rossi. Richards definitely made the right choice when she re-filed those divorce papers. A life with the troubled actor would have been bad for her and their daughters.
