While relationships sometimes get challenging in itself, having to deal with the coming of a child can be the make or break of any couple. Here’s a look at nine celebrities who chose to split after having a child.

If there’s one family that has all eyes on them all the time, it’s the Kardashians. Hence, it comes as no surprise that the public immediately speculated Khloe’s relationship with Tristan Thompson.
After confirming their relationship in 2016, the couple welcomed their first child, True, in 2018. All was well for the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star until rumors about her beau cheating on her developed.

A video of the athlete walking into a New York City hotel with a woman and kissing another two in a Washington D.C. hookah lounge was leaked online.
Although the couple reportedly patched things up for their kid, Thompson, once again, allegedly cheated on Kardashian with Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods.
The two were officially done for good yet continued to co-parent true. However, with communication still intact, it is not impossible that the two reconcile.

Together they welcomed two children, Sean Preston and Jayden James. However, two years after their union in 2004, the “Lucky” singer filed for divorce.
A source told People that the backup dancer left his wife three weeks after giving birth to party in Las Vegas. The source said:
“This was her last straw. He said, ‘I have to go to Vegas.’ He didn’t have to go to Vegas. He uses any excuse to party. She said, ‘I’ve had enough.’”
JANET JACKSON AND WISSAM AL MANA
In 2013, famous singer Janet Jackson married billionaire businessman Wissam Al Mana. After four years, the couple had a son, Eissa.

Ten weeks after going public about their relationship, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian announced their engagement and pregnancy. As reported by People, a source said:
“Rob has fallen hard for Blac Chyna. She makes him super happy, and this is the first time that he’s felt so optimistic about life in years.”
Though gossip about their relationship being shakey already circulated media outlets, it wasn’t until a month after their daughter Dream Renee came that the drama followed.
Chyna’s Instagram was hacked by someone who threatened to post private messages between Chyna and several men whom she allegedly cheated with.
While the model claimed the hacker was her husband, it only took a while before the couple eventually separated.
CIARA AND FUTURE
All eyes were on Ciara and Future after he proposed to her with a 15-carat diamond ring, but the two didn’t even make it down the aisle to say their “I do’s.”
