Some relationships end cordially, with a minimum of hurt feelings or broken possessions. Others look a little more like War of the Roses. Here are five breakups that make that time your ex deleted your Level 60 Orc Warrior look like nothing:
1. The end of Streety Bird and Sharon The worst part of this bad breakup? The horrible behavior came from someone outside the relationship! CollegeHumor employees Streeter and Amir engaged in a long, endlessly escalating prank war. About eight pranks in, Amir spent $500 buying time on the JumboTron at a Yankee’s game. His plan? A romantic, super public proposal from Streeter to his girl. Streeter, however, had no idea that he was about to propose. Sharon’s reaction quickly turns from joy to anger as Streeter explains that the whole thing was a prank. The last time we see them, she’s stalked off after slapping his face:
2. Theo One of the most referred-to reddit threads of all time involves a guy who found out that his girlfriend was cheating on him with a guy named Theo. He spends the next week hatching an elaborate and cruel breakup that involves throwing a fake wedding ring in a lake, making up an STD scare and sending fake text messages from the other guy.
3. Poor Listening Skills + Bad Temper Em forgot that her boyfriend was spending two weeks in Europe, and sent a series of progressively hostile emails because she thought he was simply blowing her off. At the height of her break-up rage, she had a drunken rebound one night stand. It wasn’t until she went to his mother’s house to drop off some stuff that she learned that he was merely traveling. By then, it was too late:
4. My Angel Is a Hardcore Porn Star One Taiwanese man, identified as Lee, found out that his wife was cheating on him in the worst way possible: he found her and their neighbor featured in a porno. The video, entitled Affairs with Others’ Wives, was shot at a motel using hidden cameras. He immediately sought a divorce. However, the story does not end there. The neighbor, who’d fled for his life, encountered the cuckolded husband eight years later in another city. Lee stabbed the neighbor in the thigh with a butcher knife.
5. Cheat on Left Eye, Lose Your $1.3 Million Mansion and All Your Possessions When Lisa Lopes, gods rest her crazy soul, learned that her NBA player boyfriend Andre Rison was cheating on her, she attempted to burn a pair of his shoes. The fire got out of hand, and his entire home and all its contents were destroyed. Apparently, neither the infidelity nor the arson were dealbreakers: the couple reconciled, spent several years together and were even engaged for a period of time shortly before her death.
