Alec Baldwin & Kim Basinger

Baldwin and Basinger – a beautiful, glamorous, seemingly perfect couple that generated envy all across Hollywood. But beneath their pearly white smiles and glamorous appearance a highly dysfunctional relationship loomed. The two got together in 1991 after co-starring in The Marrying Man in which Baldwin played a playboy and Basinger a sultry nightclub singer. This appeared to be a textbook case of art imitating life as their on-screen chemistry seemed obvious to everybody. But almost right from the start their romance was rocky and filled with high-octane arguments and the two quickly grew apart. In 1992, Basinger is forced to file for bankruptcy after backing out of a movie role. By 2001, the couple is kaput. But – the most dramatic, most scandalous and most explosive arguments were still to come. The split reaches a pinnacle with the voicemail heard ‘round the world – Baldwin’s scathing message to his daughter which will haunt him for years and years to come. But do we know all there is to know about this hotheaded pair?

Brad & Angelina

Was this couple just too good to last? Hollywood’s golden couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, aka Brangelina, seemed picture perfect with buckets of money and a gaggle of adorable children. The relationship made headlines from day one and the tabloids track their every move and detail their lives in excruciating fashion for years to come. From the outside, this pair looked unstoppable but all illusions came crashing down just two years after legally marrying. What our experts refer to as “the plane incident” shattered myths surrounding the couple and gave the public insight into their crumbling marriage.

Charlie Sheen & Denise Richards

Charlie Sheen is an actor who is almost more famous for his wild lifestyle than his body of work. But back in 2004 actress Denise Richards did her best to tame the legendary Hollywood bad boy. Some hoped she could set the infamous lover of drugs, alcohol and women on the straight and narrow but this love affair failed hard. The wealth of tangled tales between Sheen and Richards includes reports of gambling addiction, liaisons with prostitutes and disturbing abuse claims. But, this is just the tip of the iceberg with this notorious pair. The couple’s 2006 divorce wasn’t any better than their marriage. The split was contentious right from the start with Richards accusing the actor of drug abuse and threatening to kill her in the divorce proceedings. We think we have heard everything about this dysfunctional twosome – but that couldn’t be further from the truth. As it turns out there is a lot left to uncover.

Travelling upwards of 300 days a year proved difficult for the young couple and Hulk was not always the ideal, faithful husband. In 2005, the family begin filming their VH1 reality show Hogan Knows Best but life in the ever-increasing spotlight only magnifies the couple’s issues. Hulk thinks Linda’s drinking is out of control and Linda’s obsession over Hulk’s suspected infidelities is becoming all-consuming.
