Indeed, we're often reduced to derisive laughter when we hear celebrities proclaim their love for each other. Each and every one of them is so convincing in their love for another and usually willing to publicize that love with reckless abandon. Before you know it, couples announce the vogue way to say they are sick of each other: "amicable split" - as if there were such a thing. Saying that it was a friendly and mutual break-up has become the new norm amongst celebrities when announcing a divorce.
Well you know what? We're fed up and so is this man.
J. Robert Butler is convinced his daughter's divorce was somehow prompted by the rampant divorce rate among celebs. He is the founder and president of the Society for the Prevention of Celebrity Divorce and has put up the following billboards and text on cars around LA saying:
"Dear Hollywood. When you consciously uncouple, millions unconsciously uncouple too" - a direct hit at the recent revelation of Gwentth Paltrow's and Coldplay's Chris Martin divorve
"When you make divorce popular, you make divorce possible."
"Dear Hollywood. Please remember marriage is a commitment not a sponsorship opportunity"
Here are some of the shocking celebrity divorces that took the world by surpise.
