With Brooke Shields dishing the dirt on Andre Agassi, we take a look at the 15 messiest splits in showbiz.

1. Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards

During their divorce, Denise claimed that Charlie had threatened to kill her and been emotionally abusive while she was pregnant. He said the claims were "inane" and "laughable". They now have a functional relationship and Denise even has temporary custody of his two children with second wife Brooke Mueller.

2. Brian McFadden and Kerry Katona

He called her a "mole-faced pig". She said that he is a "deadbeat dad". They may have split nearly 10 years ago, but every few months this pair like to bring up the past.

3. Peter Andre and Katie Price

"Something big happened, which I won’t reveal as I don’t want my kids reading it," Peter said after they split. The reasons are still unclear but they have dragged each other through the mud since.


4. Alex Reid and Chantelle Houghton

He's a cross-dresser who had a "sex dungeon" in their home, even while she was pregnant with their first child, Dolly. At least, according to Chantelle Houghton.

5. Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin

This split is still iconic. Showbiz spectators will never forget that angry phone call Alec Baldwin left his daughter Ireland, who was nine at the time, screaming profanities at her because of her mother.

6. Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren

After the number of women he was alleged to have affairs with hit the double digits, Elin filed for divorce. They may have split quietly, but you can be sure that behind closed doors, this is as messy as it got.


7. Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston

This is still front page tabloid fodder. After filming Mr and Mrs Smith with Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt left Jennifer Aniston (America's sweetheart) and adopted four of Angelina's children. Aniston later said he had a "sensitivity chip" that was missing.

8. Katy Perry and Russell Brand

Just last week, Katy revealed the end of her marriage to Russell Brand made her suicidal. He mocks their union as part of his comedy routine.


9. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

The longest 72 days of Kim's life it would seem. Their marriage, which was filmed for the Kardashian reality show and allegedly earned them €10m, lasted just 72 days. But the divorce took nearly a year after both teams relented their fighting towards the end of Kim's pregnancy with Kanye West.


10. Mia Farrow and Woody Allen

In her latest blow, Mia Farrow has sensationally claimed that Woody Allen's son may in fact be Frank Sinatra's. We'd understand why she's bitter. Woody left his then-wife Mia in 1991 for ' stepdaughter' Soon-Yi Previn, whom he is still married to and has two adopted children with.


11. Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry

Another physical fight in Hollywood. The couple never married but have a daughter Nahla together. Earlier this year, Gabriel and Halle's husband Olivier Martinez came to physical blows during a custody swap. Halle requested supervised visits only and attempted to move her daughter to Paris away from Aubry.

12. Myleene Klass and Graham Quinn

They were together for nearly a decade before marrying, with Graham subsequently leaving the singer/tv presenter four months into their marriage. Allegedly on her birthday.

13. Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher

Their May-December romance had tongues wagging from the beginning and their constant Twitter love for one another kept glossy magazines particularly busy. It was revealed that Ashton had cheated on her and now, one of Hollywood's wealthiest divorces is still in progress.

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were married for six years.

14. Kelsey and Camille Grammar

He refuses to utter her name, referring to Camille only as "her" or "she" during interviews, and says that their marriage was over long before she appeared on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. During their divorce, he said that he would only want custody of their son and let Camille have their daughter.


15. Sandra Bullock and Jesse James

Eyebrows were raised from the beginning when butter-wouldn't-melt Sandra married Jesse; but love is love. While she was still married, she secretly adopted her son Louis, before her husband's many infidelities came to light. She says now that she "exactly where she wants to be" in life.
