Celebrities who exploited their breakups for publicity – While the public often views fame as something hugely positive, the same cannot be said for all celebrities. The idea of being instantly recognizable by millions and having the opportunity to travel the globe can seem like something that anyone would strive towards.

One of the biggest negatives to fame involves the constant curiosity by the public about every minor detail of a celebrity’s life. While the paparazzi have always been a problem in the past, the struggle to get the hottest picture has emboldened the media in unprecedented ways. From Princess Diana’s fatal car crash to citizen journalists using their camera phones to document celebrities in their daily lives, fame doesn’t always come with the best advantages to life.
While there are a number of celebrities that have lashed out because of the lack of privacy and immense criticism, there are still those that strive to stay in the limelight. From fake relationships to try and reach a bigger audience to publicity stunts to make the latest headlines, there isn’t much someone won’t do to build their fame. While people wouldn’t generally choose to divulge the details surrounding marital problems or heartbreak, there are some celebrities that choose to exploit these events to try and further their careers. Rather than choosing to keep these details private, some celebrities have chosen to dish out all the dirt and even prolong the attention. Check out our list of 15 celebrities that milked their breakups to get ahead and garner increased publicity, and see how some of the hottest names in Hollywood have exploited themselves for fame.
Madonna has always had an issue with trying to stay relevant in today’s ever-changing music industry. She has seemingly tried everything to remain current, whether it was kissing Britney Spears on stage at the VMAs or dressing half-naked on the red carpet. It has seemed like she would do anything and everything to try and remain part of popular culture, and that includes milking her breakup with her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie. While her concerts continue to draw in thousands of fans with each new show, many of her fans don’t exactly want to hear any of her new music. Madonna fans want to hear favorites like “Papa Don’t Preach” and “Like A Virgin.” Since it can be difficult to get media coverage for a concert that’s just playing hits from the ‘80s, Madonna decided to bring up her breakup and custody battle on stage. In March 2016, Madonna reportedly performed at an Australian concert, and started calling out her ex-husband. She called him “a son of a b****” when speaking about the drama with their son, Rocco, but this wasn’t the first time she had used her personal heartbreak to promote her concerts. In January 2016, she called Ritchie the C-word on stage in Nashville during a concert, as well.
