From Meghan Markle To Khloe Kardashian: 11 Celebs Whose Family Was Not Impressed With Their Other Half
That's got to be the absolute worst...
Celeb relationships take up a lot of time for us. We like to ship them, search for cute photos and generally just be pretty depressed that we’re single. We want to be hugged from behind on a sunny day in LA while paps take photos of us. SIGH.
But the moment we’re super chuffed that’s not us is when it comes out that the celebs’ families are NOT down for their relationship and a lot of the time make it public knowledge. Awkwaaaaard.
BUT FIRST CHECK OUT THE CELEBS THAT WENT ON A BREAK A LA FRIENDS...
1. Khloe Kardashian
Koko’s recent scandal with baby daddy Tristian Thompson has seemingly made the Kardashian klan turn their backs on the basketball player. Just days before Khloe gave birth to their daughter True, it came out that Tristan had cheated on her multiple times during their relationship.
Her sister Kim has since said of the incident: “Poor Khloé. Like, I don’t even know how to describe it besides it’s just so f*cked up. We really were rooting for Khloe and we still are. She’s so strong and she’s doing the best that she can. It’s a really sad situation all over. I kind of made this rule with my brother. If there’s a baby involved, I’m going to keep it cute and classy and try not to say anything negative because one day True is going to see this. It’s just so messed up.”
2. Sofia Richie
Sofia’s dad Lionel Richie joked about her relationship with Scott Disick when the pair first started dating but according to sources it was no laughing matter. When is came out that Scott had cheated on Sofia, insiders said Lionel was livid. A source revealed to People: “Lionel hasn’t approved of the relationship since the beginning. He joked about it publicly but he was livid.”
Unless you live under a rock or haven’t stopped watching Netflix for two years straight, you’ll have seen the video of Bey’s sister Solange Knowles attempting to attack Jay-Z in that elevator. According to sources, Solange was livid at the rapper for cheating on her sister and the pair haven’t been pictured together since. But according to Jay the pair worked out their differences.
4. Meghan Markle
When it came out that the Suits actress was dating Prince Harry the world was shocked. Cue a million stories coming out about the star. But perhaps the most surprising was her very own half brother who begged the prince not to marry her saying: “Dear Prince Harry, It's not to [sic] late. Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you. As more time passes to your royal wedding, it become [sic] very clear that this is the biggest mistake in royal wedding history." WOW.
5. Dorinda Medley
Fans of The Real Housewives Of New York City will have noticed the extreme tension between Dorinda’s daughter Hannah and her boyfriend John Mahdessian. Hannah has struggled to bond with John and Dorinda has tried to keep the two apart for the entirety of her relationship. That’s got be be hella awkward.
6. Ashley Graham
The model admitted in her memoir, A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty and Power Really Look Like, that when she first started dating her now husband Justin Ervin some members of her fam were not on board because of the colour of his skin.
She wrote: “I never told my grandparents that the man I was bringing home was black. I naively hoped everyone would be colour-blind—which is not what happened. When my grandparents met Justin, my grandmother was cordial but cold. She greeted him and immediately walked away. When it came time for them to leave, my grandparents didn’t even acknowledge him. Instead my grandmother looked me in the eye, with Justin standing behind me, and said, 'Tell that guy I said goodbye.' I had never seen my loving, hardworking, and wonderful grandma be so hurtful and so racist. I was in shock."
7. Kim Kardashian
Her fam may love Kanye West but they weren’t such fans of her previous marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries. Khloe was the most vocal of her sisters telling Kim: “He's a f*cking loser. Why are you marrying this f*cking dog?" Kim admitted after the split that her mum Kris Jenner had also tried to put her off marrying him, saying: “This isn't it for you. Why don't you go away and I'll handle it?"
8. Jenelle Evans
Fans of Teen Mom 2 saw Jenelle and her mum grow increasingly apart due to her hatred for Janelle’s boyf David Eason. Her mum even refused to come to her wedding in 2017 because of the beef and said on an episode of the show: “David has alienated her from me. She has chosen David over her own family and that's just how it is."
9. Lamar Odom
Shockingly, Lamar’s kids Lamar Jr and Destiny weren’t keen on his super famous ex-wife Khloe Kardashian. After the couple split, Destiny voiced her opinion on her Ask.fm page saying: “No one thought they were going to last, so honestly, who (cares)?” Later in 2015 when Khloe rushed to Lamar’s bedside after his overdose, Destiny slated her to People: “A lot of people in our circle were confused. Their relationship is very toxic."
10. Brad Pitt
Apparently when Brad and Angelina Jolie first got together, his parents was NOT chuffed because they were still so close to Jennifer Aniston. A source told Now: "Jane's seen, first hand, how difficult Angelina is. She never comes to visit the family in Missouri and is always prickly on the rare occasions they have got together. Jennifer was the total opposite—charming, friendly and the perfect daughter-in-law. She always made time to be an active part of the family, whereas Angie just turns her nose up."
11. Rob Kardashian
The Kardashian fam tried to play nice with Blac Chyna, who they’d had many a beef with, until it was just too much. Previously having slated Kylie Jenner for dating her ex Tyga, Chyna was welcomed into the family by Rob’s sisters with more open arms that maybe she deserved. When Kylie squashed her beef. But when her and Rob had their umpteenth split, the fam declared they had had enough.
Kim announced on KUWTK: “I’ve always felt like them as a couple just isn’t that healthy and I think they know that too. It isn’t a secret. Rob can be really irrational and he just has to learn to take responsibility for himself and not blame it on Chyna. This all has to stop. It’s so clear what this relationship is - and that they’re just not meant to be with each other."
