Fame and wealth can do funny things to your brain. You start believing your own hype, and if you happen to be a dude, the dating world often becomes a unique playground where the most beautiful women do the chasing so it’s little wonder many famous men (as well as women) ditch their partners upon realising they can pretty much have whoever they want.
With that said, here are 10 stars who left their partners for someone else shortly after their entertainment careers took off.
1. Morgan Freeman
Morgan Freeman seems like a nice guy, but it was still cruel of him to leave his first wife Jeanette Bradshaw in 1979 shortly before he became an A-list star.
However, Morgan Freeman’s ascent to Hollywood fame was a long one, and it wasn’t until he was in his 40s that he started to become a household name, so we presume Freeman wanted to experience the bachelor Hollywood lifestyle before he became too old.
