It can be hard to find friends that you can trust and depend on to have your back no matter what! It must be even harder for those with celebrity status to find those types of friends. Especially since so many people would love to use that status to their advantage. We’ve compiled a list of celebrities who may have thought they found their lifelong BFF (Best Friend Forever) but sadly couldn’t make it in the long run. Find out who used to be friends, and why they ended their friendships.
Let us know if you think there are any other ex-Bff’s that should be included, or chime in with your thoughts on the feuds that were started.
#15 Tiffani Amber Thiessen & Jennie Garth
Tiffani and Jennie met back in the 90’s on the set of 90210. These girls were two peas in a pod and should have had a friendship to last the ages, but unfortunately, it didn’t stand the test of time.
Tiffani claimed to be the victim in their fallout, but the details have never been made public. Jenni has never made any comment about their past friendship. So we may never know why this great friendship didn’t make it. Share your thoughts on why they had a fallout below!
#14 Gwyneth Paltrow & Winona Ryder
Nothing causes tension like stealing your best friend’s movie role! Winona was set to star in the movie ‘Shakespeare in Love’ but Gwyneth stole it from her. Gwyneth even won an Oscar! Now that’s got to hurt!
Do you think that is enough to end a friendship? Or should it be viewed as a little professional competition? Let us know your thoughts!
#13 Elton John & George Michael
Their decades-long friendship seemed like it would never end. That is, until in 2004, when George Michael’s drug problems came out and became public knowledge. Elton John didn’t want anything to do with it, and so distanced himself from George. The two still speak from time to time, but the friendship has never been the same. Do you think that they will find a way to rekindle their amazing friendship?
#12 Kobe Bryant & Shaquille O’Neal
When they played for the LA Lakers together, they were BFF’s on and off the court. No one really knows why they drifted apart, but both of them being star players for the same team could have caused some issues. Kobe said that Shaq was, “fat, out of shape, and over-dramatizing injuries to avoid blame for the lack of conditioning.” Best friends are supposed to be supportive no matter what, and that doesn’t sound very friendly!
#11 Lauren Conrad & Heidi Montag
Remember these two? They were the best of friends when they were starring together in ‘The Hills’. In 2007 Heidi did the one thing that no best friend should ever do. She starting dating Lauren’s crush Spencer Pratt. Things obviously went downhill fast for the two stars, and they aren’t even on speaking terms today. Plus Lauren and Spencer are now married, so we see how well all that turned out…
Have you been in Lauren’s situation? Would you want to be friends again?
#10 Rachel Zoe & Brad Goreski
These two were super close and probably the most well known Stylist duo in Hollywood. Many saw their partnership as perfect, not too mention how good of friends they had become. That is until Brad decided to start his own solo career in 2010. No doubt Rachel felt like she had been stabbed in the back, and Brad moved on with his career without a second thought. Poor Rachel!
Do you think these two will ever work together again?
#9 Madonna & Gwyneth Paltrow
No one knows why Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow stopped being best friends in 2010. It was not made publicly known or confirmed by either one of them. It has been suggested that Gwyneth was competitive and very jealous of Madonna. Whatever the reason, we think they should be friends again! Do you think they should try and rekindle their friendship, or at least tell us what happened?
#8 David Letterman & Jay Leno
Since 1975 Jay Leno and David Letterman had been best friends. Unfortunately, fame or TV ratings could be to blame for ruining this long-running friendship. In 1992, Jay Leno became the host of the ‘Late Night Show’ and the two became rivals on TV. Whether the show is to blame or something else happened, they ended up also becoming rivals in real life. How great would it be if these two reconciled on the ‘Late Night Show’?
#7 Taylor Swift & Katy Perry
No one should ever go after their best friends ex-boyfriend. That’s just common knowledge. Well either Katy Perry didn’t know this, or she just didn’t care. She started dating Taylor Swift’s ex-boyfriend John Mayer. Taylor who was furious broke off their friendship in 2012. She even went so far as to accuse Katy of trying to sabotage her tour!
Do you know of anyone else Taylor used to be friends with and it ended in drama? Let us know below!
#6 Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, & Lindsay Lohan
It’s no secret that when Paris was younger she went through a bit of a party animal phase. She became best friends with Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. In 2006-2007, you could find the three of them hitting up every major night club and party together.
No one knows why, or can confirm what made the three split ways. Since 2007, the three of them haven’t been seen together. If you have an idea what happened, let us know below!
#5 Nicole Ritchie & Paris Hilton
It was hard for these two to not have been friends growing up, as they were next door neighbors. They were friends since they were little, and for a time were inseparable. They even made a TV show together called ‘The Simple Life’. So how did two inseparable childhood friends come to an end? Apparently, Nicole became jealous because Paris was more famous than her. It ruined their friendship, although they are now on speaking terms. Do you think they could be BFF’s again? And if they did, would you watch another show with them in it?
#4 Paris Hilton & Kim Kardashian
Ever wonder how Kim Kardashian got into the spotlight? Well, Kim and Paris Hilton used to be really good friends! She was part of Paris’ entourage, and they could be seen almost everywhere together. Kim got noticed and was able to land a reality TV show deal. Paris thinks that Kim used her to become famous and get the TV show deal. No wonder we never hear of the two of them together! Now that they are older, do you think that Paris should get over it, or just move on?
#3 Nicole Richie & Lindsay Lohan
Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan used to be great friends. That is, until, Nicole got shut out of Charlotte Ronson’s private party in 2009 which was being held at Chateau Marmont. Nicole later responded by literally giving Lindsay the cold shoulder. She walked right past Lindsay and completely ignored her. When Lindsay was asked about it, she said that “everyone’s turned on me”. Who do you think is to blame here?
#2 Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato
Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato were both in Disney shows, so it’s no wonder that the two of them ended up becoming BFF’s. Although, in an interview in 2014 Demi said that they were only “acquaintances”. She did go onto say that, “yeah, it’s life and people change… And you, know, I don’t have anything in common with her anymore, and I wish her all the best.” That sounds like they may have just drifted apart over the years. What do you think?
#1 Demi Lovato & Selena Gomez
Selena is also a Disney Alumni and co-starred with Demi in the movie ‘Princess Protection Program’. These two talented ladies were once inseparable! So what caused them to part ways? Well, when Demi was asked about it in January 2010 she said quite coldly responded, “ask Taylor”. Selena and Taylor Swift quickly became friends after meeting, and Demi clearly blames Taylor for ruining her friendship with Selena! Do you think Taylor would do such a thing?
Finding true friends as a celebrity, that stick around for good, seems to be really hard! Not only do you have to deal with the normal issues of your friends being jealous, misusing drugs, trash talking, or trying to steal your boyfriend. They are also having to deal with people using them for their fame, just to try and make themselves famous! For the actors and actresses, they are dealing with friends who could steal their roles and win Oscars (We’re looking at you, Gwyneth!). Let us know if you think that there are any other ex-BFF’s that should have been included in the list!
