Last year one of Hollywood’s most glamorous super couples, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (Brangelina), rocked the world by announcing they had decided to split after twelve years together; which sent several adoring fans into meltdown. Accompanied by the controversial divorce of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard following a mere two-year marriage and the near-miss with Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, 2016 certainly left us uncertain about the sanctity of marriage.
Realistically, it is not unusual for celebrity couples to break up. With many obstacles to face, such as lengthy separations while working on set or performing, the constant media attention and of course, a life-long battle against their own egotism; it seems as though our favorite high profiled couples are practically doomed from the start. While we’re usually rooting for a couple to make it, there are times when we can already predict that it probably won’t work out. With this in mind, here are the odds of the couples most likely to split in 2017:
David Beckham & Victoria Beckham – 5/1 Odds:
Dubbed as “Posh and Becks”, former footballer David Beckham and Spice Girls member Victoria Beckham married in 1999 after a two-year relationship, with their wedding reception costing an estimated £500,000 and have remained one of Hollywood’s most highly followed relationships since. The couple have four children together: sons Brooklyn Joseph Beckham, Romeo James Beckham, Cruz David Beckham and daughter Harper Seven Beckham. Labelled Britain’s most famous celebrity couple, The Beckham family have made millions portraying their relationship as the perfect marriage.
However, previous revelations about the couple from their former nanny, claimed David Beckham wanted ‘to split’ from the marriage, and that Victoria was in tears over rumors of his affairs with other women. Allegations of steamy affairs with his former personal assistant Rebecca Loos, model Sarah Marbeck and the couple’s beautician Danielle Heath have also been revealed against the former England captain, although he still maintains his innocence. Could 2017 feature the final nail in the coffin for the couple?
Khloe Kardashian & Tristian Thompson – 2/1 Odds:
Although they only started dating in October 2016, the predictions of reality TV star Khloe Kardashian and basketball player Tristian Thompson splitting up are seemingly high already. Considering Thompson’s ex-girlfriend, Jordan Craig, gave birth to his first son in December, could the new arrival drive a wedge between the couple?
Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis -19/1 Odds:
Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis have some of the highest betting odds; meaning although surprising, they have clearly been doubted enough to feature on the list. The couple’s seemingly perfect love story began in 2012, when Kunis began dating her former That ’70s Show co-star Ashton Kutcher, who she became engaged to by February 2014 and married in July 2015. During their relationship, the acting duo have had two children together – daughter Wyatt Isabelle (born October 2014) and son Dimitri Portwood Kutcher (born November 2016).
Despite their seemingly perfect relationship, in October 2014, Kutcher was accused of cheating on Kunis during the early days of their relationship with make-up artist Linn Massinger, who allegedly possessed pictures which appeared to show her and Kutcher cuddling in bed together. Although the claimed affair was never confirmed, perhaps Kutcher could be tempted elsewhere?
Adam Levine & Behati Prinsloo – 2/1 Odds:
Labelled as People magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’, Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine and Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo began dating back in May 2012 and were eventually married in July 2014. Since then, Prinsloo has recently given birth to the couple’s first child, a daughter, in September 2016.
Sadly, rumors have hinted that Levine and Prinsloo are facing a lot of troubles in their marriage, which could lead to divorce. Sources have claimed that the iconic singer and the modelling beauty have been consistently fighting over several differences, with further reports suggesting that Levine hooked up with Miley Cyrus during their time on The Voice. Will the rumors be confirmed as the truth?
Jimmy Fallon & Nancy Juvonen – 3/1 Odds:
After meeting on the set of Fever Pitch, comedian Jimmy Fallon and film producer Nancy Juvonen began dating in May 2007 after Drew Barrymore invited Fallon to a birthday party, which she threw for Juvonen. A few months later, Fallon proposed to Juvonen in August 2007 and the pair married four months later. They have two daughters – Winnie Rose, born in 2013, and Frances Cole, born in 2014.
Despite being married for almost a decade, the couple have been accused of nearly breaking up several times in the past few years; with the rumors beginning in 2015 when Fallon was allegedly suffering from a drinking problem. Will they make it to their tenth wedding anniversary?
