We have all experienced a difficult breakup at some point in life. However, probably the worst thing they could do to you is if your partner decides to end their relationship with a simple text message or a call, without giving you a face, explanations or the opportunity to have a good closure.
As we see them, Hollywood celebrities also have their little hearts and, like you and me, their souls have been broken into a thousand pieces. These eight celebrities have experienced being dumped – or someone else – on the phone, some of them even found out that they were about to get divorced through a text message.
1. Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas
What happened? Although neither has spoken about it, their year-long romance ended with a phone call after they had been having many arguments, prompting them to end their relationship by mutual agreement.
2. Rebel Wilson y Jacob Busch
What happened? After a little less than a year as a couple, the actress announced in networks that she was single again. Weeks later, the news that she had cut off the billionaire heir by text message caused a stir.
