High profile celebrity divorces...

Our relationship was intensely passionate and at times volatile, but always bound by love

Statement from Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

Johnny Depp has agreed to pay ex-wife Amber Heard seven million dollars to settle their divorce. In a joint statement the pair agreed their 18 month marriage had been 'volatile'.

The build up to the final divorce has been more dramatic by the day, with allegations of physical violence, cheating and more - and it's not the first time we've seen a high profile pair split.

Nicole Kidman and Tom CruiseDivorced in 2001

They were the ultimate Hollywood power couple who met in the early 90s while filming Days of Thunder and married on Christmas eve. They separated three days before their 10th wedding anniversary and Nicole claims that during the split she was pregnant and later miscarried. Nicole and Tom settled out of court splitting some of their assets and have shared custody of their two adopted children.

Jennifer Aniston and Brad PittDivorced in 2005

By far one of the most heartbreaking breaks-ups. Worse than Rachel and Ross. Did Jennifer really want it? Who knows? Rumour has it that during the shoot for Mr and Mrs Smith, Brad fell head over heels for Angelina Jolie thus ending his five year marriage to Jen.

Sir Paul McCartney and Heather MillsDivorced in 2008

After a four-year marriage Heather Mills came out with a fifth (24.3 million) of what she had originally wanted. The couple’s relationship was described by the judge as one of "considerable volatility" and the divorce was one of the most highly publicised splits.

Madonna and Guy RichieDivorced 2008

They made films together, adopted a kid and lived like country bumpkins, but after eight years together Guy decided to call it a day, quoted as saying "I stepped into a soap opera". The duo split and share custody of their two children, Rocco and David and it’s reported Richie was awarded ten million pounds from the divorce.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris MartinDivorced 2014

After ten years of marriage and two children Gwyneth and Chris announced their divorce as a "conscious uncoupling". The pair still remain friends, going on holiday and brunching together, and they share parenting and live independently from each other. This is a lesson in how to divorce amicably and still stay friends.
