8. Divorce Rumors

Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar may be one of the most down-to-earth and loved celebrity couples out there, but even they were targets of divorce rumors. Shortly after celebrating their 13th wedding anniversary, the pair were faced with tabloid rumors that their storied romance was coming to an end. The reports came about after Freddie Prinze Jr. stepped out looking a little disheleved while “sources” stated the problems started for the couple after Freddie underwent spinal surgery with the source saying, “Sarah took care of him when he couldn’t get out of bed, but as time went on and his injuries healed, she noticed he was in no rush to return to work. Since then, Freddie’s grown content on the couch, playing video games instead of getting paid to voice them.” Of course, there was no base to the rumors, and they are happier than ever.
