Relationships are hard for anyone. If you live in the public glare of a 24/7 spotlight, relationships have an added pressure that we mere mortals really can't fathom, and that leads to some pretty nasty celebrity breakups. Fortunately for us, we don't have to live through that type of humiliation, but we can enjoy savage stories about celebrities who trolled their exes. In doing so, these celebs reiterate two very important points about human nature. One, that although they may be zillionaire superstars, they aren't immune to recrimination and vengeance. And, two, they prove once again that revenge is a dish best served cold… and brutal.
In some of these funny ways stars got back at their exes, they used their own creativity and chosen art form to instigate their revenge. In different cases, they thought outside the box and trolled in epic ways. And in others, they took the familiar but nonetheless still-delicious route of blasting their exes in public and in interviews.
Whether these tactics are in bad taste is in the eye of the beholder and beside the point. After all, we can find something to enjoy in each of these stories about how famous people troll their former partners. We might even learn a few tips along the way.
Satsuki Mitchell Spent Away Her Heartbreak
From 2005 to 2010, Daniel Craig dated producer Satsuki Mitchell. When he ended the relationship, the rumors were rampant that he dumped her for Rachel Weisz, to whom he is now married. But Mitchell got her revenge, and she got it good. Since she was an authorized user on Craig's credit cards, Mitchell reportedly went on a spending spree.
A one-million-dollar spending spree, to be exact. That is some A-level revenge right there.

TLC's Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and football player Andre Rison were together for six years in the 1990s.

Neither Amber Rose nor Kanye West, who dated from 2008 to 2010, are known for taking the high road when it comes to their opinions. Even years after their split, they still fling the occasional mud at one another. One of the best examples of their still-obvious discord is the exchange that went down between the two after Kanye dissed Rose's then-husband Wiz Khalifa. Rose tweeted: "Awww @kanyewest are u mad I'm not around to play in ur a--hole anymore?"
Kanye's response was equally epic: "That b*tch never stuck no fingers in my a**."
Stay classy, you two!

The Brandi Glanville/Eddie Cibrian/LeAnn Rimes love triangle was the gift that keeps on giving. For the handful of you who don't know, Eddie left Brandi for LeAnn back in 2009, and all three of them seemed to have issues moving on. But Glanville took it to a whole new level when she dressed as the country star for Halloween in 2017. The theme of the party was "Celebrity Scandal Couples." Adding insult to injury, Glanville's boyfriend dressed up as Cibrian.
Glanville and Rimes have since buried the hatchet and are co-parenting Glanville and Cibrian's children together.
