Who better understands this world than your favourite celebrity? They live through a rollercoaster of such drama for everyone to see. It’s one of the things the entertainment scene has embraced so dearly.

Sometimes it takes a tragedy to figure out who your “real” friends are but we don’t want you to live through this experience.
