Being in a relationship with someone that is emotionally or physically abusive is an experience that we wish you would never experience. Loving an individual and being abused by the very same person is devastating no matter who you are.
People often see such issues as the common folk’s problem; never thinking that our favorite stars might be in the same situation as us.
Being famous doesn’t change that fact that people do abuse their significant other. There are so many cases where the person getting abused doesn’t dare to come out into the open about it all. If you too are going through something similar, here are a total of 10 famous couples that were in a very toxic relationship.

Ok, we’re starting off strong; the relationship between Rihanna and Chris Brown was a match made in heaven. They were a beloved couple; both were successful in the music industry and on the surface, it seemed that they were madly in love with one another.
All that love ended when Chris was sent to jail on domestic abuse charges. There are pictures and video available online where it is clearly visible that Rihanna was physically harmed. The persona that Rihanna has makes her look like this badass woman that wouldn’t take s**t from no one, but you have to consider that love is a powerful tool. People get manipulated by their loved ones all the time, and superstars are no exception.

Considering that Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson got married after knowing each other for only four days, it wasn’t a surprise that they would eventually get divorced.
