8 Stars Who Have Opened Up About Toxic Relationships
1. Khloé Kardashian
Khloé Kardashian has been in her fair share of tumultuous relationships, including her first marriage to ex Lamar Odom. During their relationship, Lamar was allegedly unfaithful on multiple occasions, which she says she never anticipated at the time.
“Lamar was so great at making me feel like I was the only one and I was this princess, so I never speculated about his cheating. He was so good. Nothing was on his cell phones,” Khloé later recalled in a discussion on The Howard Stern Show.
She claimed that most of his affairs were organized on an assistant’s phone and when she made the discovery, she was “genuinely blown away” and “humiliated.” Despite the situation, Khloé says she doesn’t have regrets and still cares for him — and understands he’s “had a really f–ked up deck of cards dealt to him his entire life.”

Gwen Stefani went through a public divorce with ex Gavin Rossdale after he allegedly cheated on her with their children’s nanny. Looking back, Gwen says the revelation “shattered” her dreams and was the beginning of a dark period in her life — but she decided to keep quiet at the time in order to protect her children.
“It was the beginning of hell. Like six, seven, eight months of torture, trying to figure out this big secret,” Gwen told Harper’s Bazaar. “My dreams were shattered. All I wanted my whole life was to have babies, be married, like what my parents have. Then I remember thinking, ‘There’s gotta be a reason for this.’ Of course you go through the ‘Why me?’ and feel sorry for yourself. But then I was like, ‘No, this happened to me already and I made something good out of it,’ and that was ‘Tragic Kingdom.’”

3. Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez admits she’s been cheated on in past relationships and although she hasn’t specified which former partner was unfaithful, she says she’s learned some important lessons thanks to the relationship.
“It’s about realizing it’s not about you. When someone cheats on you, it’s about them…about their shortcomings. It makes it feel like it’s about our shortcomings, like there was something wrong with us. But the truth is, it’s really their ego, and what they need to fill within themselves that drives them to do things like that. Not because you weren’t enough,” she said in an interview with Glamour UK.

“I had moments of, ‘Am I not sexy enough? Am I not pretty enough? Am I not smart enough?’ But in so many of those questions, I immediately stopped and said, ‘No, don’t start doing that.’ Because you can get stuck in that cycle,” Eva said on “The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet.”
She continued, “Society usually thinks there’s something wrong with the woman: Oh, he cheated on her, so she must not have been sexually satisfying him. She must have been a ball and chain! Why did he have to have a reason to cheat that had do with me? … I am so secure in who I am. I really am. And I’m not conceited. I just think, ‘Wow, okay, that’s the life you want to live.’”

“It’s all blood under the bridge. You can’t hold on to anything like that. You can’t hold on to anything like that. It’s pointless. I haven’t got the energy for it. Helena and I made our peace years and years ago,” Emma said in an interview with the Sunday Times. “Oh, we are [alike]. Being slightly mad and a bit fashion-challenged. Perhaps that’s why Ken loved us both. She’s a wonderful woman, Helena.”

This community never fails to amaze me,” Sophia wrote. “I know that I’ve lost a lot of weight. It’s not intentional. The betrayal in my last relationship just really took a toll on me, but I have the most amazing support system… I don’t wish what I went through on anybody.

And when I looked back at our relationship, I saw the flags…but I wanted this relationship. I loved this man so much that I made up in my mind it wasn’t a flag,” she said on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” adding, “As your committed partner I have a right to know where you were at 4 o’clock in the morning. And that doesn’t make me insecure, and it doesn’t make me needy.”

Because with that level of public heartbreak, to have to get out of a bed, let alone stand in front of 800 people every night, it’s just the last thing you want to do,” she shared with the Daily Beast. “There’s a whole six weeks of that experience that I don’t remember. I have no recollection of it. People who came to see me said we had dinner, and I don’t remember. I was in so much shock over it all.”
