Infidelity, drug use, Scientology: These are only a few of the reasons why these famous Hollywood couples decided to split.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard by now that Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, citing "irreconcilable differences." Regardless of whether you were a fan of the Hollywood couple or not, their separation has hijacked entertainment headlines and shocked the masses. The seemingly levelheaded couple was routinely praised for their activist natures, family dynamics and open communication. Like Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, they seemed solid.

But celebrity divorce scandals are hardly new—in most cases, they're even expected. However, it often takes a high-profile split, rife with malicious gossip and wild speculation, like the one between Jolie and Pitt, to cause us to look back at other headline-grabbing divorces that also shook the foundations of Tinseltown.

So we take a look at some of the more, shall we say…acrimonious…celebrity splits.
