The stars have a lot of stuff that we don’t have. Including money, money, and money. But when it comes to feelings, hearts and relationships, they are made like us. They fall in love, like us. Then end up suffering from love after having run straight into a wall, like us. While breakups naturally hurt a lot, let me tell you that they are all the more difficult when they are public AND they lead to the annulment of a marriage. Not easy life, huh? How are you, otherwise?

It was in 2016 that the capricious diva (oops, that’s said) and the billionaire got engaged. A few months later, under the pressure exerted by the agent of the singer, the marriage takes water. Bad luck: Mariah had already bought a little Valentino dress for $250,000 (yes, the price of a nice house). You say to yourself that she must have sold it for a good price? Well no ! She just burned it for her “I don’t’” music video. It’s clever…
