From Paul McCartney to Johnny Depp, here’s a look at some of the ugliest separations Hollywood has seen over the years.

Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger

Seven years of blissful marriage between actors Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger turned ugly when Basinger accused Alec Baldwin of emotional and physical abuse. Alec’s brother Billy even called Basinger a ‘nutcase’.The two divorced in 2002 and despite the divorce coming through, the feud between the two actors continued for the custody of their daughter Ireland.

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore

Actor Ashton Kutcher’s fling with the 22-year-old San Diego-based administrative assistant Sara Leal was the breaking point for his six -year-old marriage with Demi Moore. The two separated in 2011 and their divorce was finalised in 2013, which was not before Ashton was accused of having a series of flings while staying married to Moore. Following the split, the latter was even hospitalised for a while.
