10 failed celebrity relationships that broke hearts

The High Life legend speaking about his failed relationship said "if you are going to look at it objectively, I think especially for the women, she is actually very sentimental and very emotional about the little things that we don't give too much care to. For instance, if I should travel to the United States for just ten days and I'm not able to call back home that's an issue".
But according to Akosua Agyapong, “we were married for over 10 years and had four children and you think I would easily call for a divorce because I didn’t hear from him in 10 days? Then it means I am a mean person. Even though I haven’t regretted leaving him I would only say the marriage didn’t go well for us,”
