Being handsome, famous, and wealthy may attract more women, but it doesn’t always lead to success in relationships. Some of the most charming (Leonardo DiCaprio), talented (John Mayer), and successful (Lance Armstrong) have been failures when it comes to healthy, stable relationships. Thankfully, you can learn from the failures of the rich and famous.
The hook of following celebrity relationship disasters comes from the importance we place on our own relationships, says Theresa DiDonato, PhD, a social psychologist and assistant professor at Loyola University who specializes in relationships. Though she does caution, “That’s one way to learn about relationships while you form your own. But the only people who know exactly what is going on are the two involved.”
In these cases, however, dirty laundry was aired for all to see. Learn from the men who lost the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Gisele Bundchen, and Anne Hathaway. Even if you never date a starlet, you’re still not learning these lessons the hard way.
