* At the height of Tony Romo’s career as [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback]], many fans blamed his [[EveryYearTheyFizzleOut failure to perform in big games]] on his dating Music/JessicaSimpson and thinking about her more than football. Or just their dating, given how superstitious sports fans can be. Simpson’s detractors even called her “Yoko Romo”. In hindsight, it clearly had nothing to do with his play, as Romo’s reputation continued even after they broke up, and his most famous gaffe (a botched snap on what would have been a playoff game-winning field goal) happened nearly a year before they began dating.

Romo's most infamous moment involving Simpson took place in the 2007 season, when after the Cowboys finished with an NFC-best 13-3 record and with it, the NFC's first seed, Romo, along with Simpson and tight end Jason Witten, among others, went on a trip to Cabo San Lucas during the bye week. The Cowboys were defeated by the New York Giants in the Divisional Round.

* Nancy Spungen is often considered the “Yoko Ono” of seminal British punk band Music/TheSexPistols. She’s the subject of considerable controversy, as she was a troubled and possibly mentally ill teenage groupie who got involved with troubled Sex Pistols “bassist” Music/SidVicious. The rest of the band hated her (being an American didn’t help), and the press ridiculed her. She is often blamed for Sid’s heroin addiction and degeneration; while she did introduce him to heroin, he was well-known to have already been regularly abusing a number of other drugs (mostly speed) before they met, and her influence on his already dramatically self-destructive behaviour is very likely exaggerated. Then she was murdered shortly after the Sex Pistols broke up; Sid was arrested for it, although many now believe that she was killed by a drug dealer in a deal gone bad. [[DestructiveRomance Maybe those crazy kids were just meant for each other.]]

* Erik Nelson, Frank Chin, and Blake Anderson all left Music/{{Vektor}} at the very end of 2016 after a lengthy history of progressively worsening tensions between them and Katy [=DiSanto=] (the wife of frontman Dave [=DiSanto=]) eventually grew to include Dave himself as she gained progressively more control over how the band was run.

** John Lennon married his first wife, Cynthia, in 1962; band manager Brian Epstein tried to keep that marriage a secret precisely because he was concerned about the fans’ reaction to a married Beatle. Their cover was blown on the Beatles’ first appearance on ''Series/TheEdSullivanShow'' in 1964, when John got the captain, “SORRY GIRLS, HE’S MARRIED.”

* Israeli sitcom ''The Foxes'', revolving around a group of friends making a poor quality horror series on Website/YouTube, made an ''[[CaptainErsatz ersatz]]''-Yoko girlfriend for the group writer and director [[UnfortunateNames Schmuckler]]. Her skin had a rather dark complexion and her eyes were always covered by sunglasses, making her appear more Asian. She frequently meddled with the production, whispering ‘suggestions’ to Schmuckler ([[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything who took the habit of wearing round sunglasses]]) and never uttering a word besides that. The rest of the group hated her guts, but let her stay because Schmuckler was a [[AManIsNotAVirgin virgin]] and they wanted to [[YouNeedToGetLaid give him an opportunity to finally get lucky]]. This got so bad she made him declare their break up (and smiled in ''Schadenfreude'' as he obeyed), but was soon allowed to be in the group’s new short instead. The actor playing the murderer in the scene was extra-cruel to her and wound up legitimately hurting her, leading to her leaving the group for an acting gig (apparently, no-one could play a dead body as well as her), and it turned out Schmuckler [[StatusQuoIsGod never got to do anything with her]].

* In the episode "Fallen Arches" of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBros'', the trope is discussed when Dr. Venture attempts to have TheTalk with his son Dean. The TimeCompressionMontage inexplicably ends with him ranting that Tawny Kitaen broke up {{Music/Whitesnake}}. (David Coverdale did replace most of the band around the time she [[ThreeMinutesOfWrithing appeared]] in their videos, and later they got married and divorced some time later.)

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}'': Some fans of the show feel this way about Tom Sloan. He starts dating Jane near the end of season 3, but his growing attraction to Daria causes a serious rift between the two girls, who, up until then, were inseparable for most of the show. This fact is not lost on Daria, and when she and Tom kiss each other it hurts her friendship with Jane for a while.

* Creator/KimKardashian got hatred on hip-hop sites and forums after she started dating Music/KanyeWest; it intensified when he impregnated her. Fans were concerned about her [[LoveMakesYouUncreative negatively impacting his image and street cred]]; it didn’t help that one of Kanye’s biggest hits is called “Gold Digger”.

** Music/{{Exo}}’s Baekhyun and Music/GirlsGeneration’s Taeyon were caught dating in 2014, and since both bands were wildly popular, they each got a ton of flak from each other’s fanbase. The fans insanity extended to claims that they shouldn't be allowed to talk to each other on social media (this being reserved for the fans) and that fans are “entitled” to vet their personal lives [[FanDumb because they buy their merchandise]]. But everyone knows it’s really because it destroyed their [[{{Shipping}} slash pairings]].

* Both former members of [[Music/{{Tatu}} t.A.T.u.]] [[OldShame have long since moved past their]] [[BaitAndSwitchLesbians “lesbian”]] days, but fans still want them to be together. Yulia's ex-“husband” (they weren't legally married but she called him such), Parviz, wasn't seen as good enough or attractive as her. The other vocalist Lena Katina got married, and her husband got [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aX_ISxOuh2Y about the same reaction as Yulia’s]] as shown in the comments. The fans don’t seem so upset about Lena and Yulia having kids; they [[LesYay just want them to reconcile and get back together]]. Yulia completely nixed any chance of a reunion with her “my way or the highway” attitude; the ironically-named “Love in Every Moment” single was filmed separately because Lena didn’t want to be in the same room as Yulia.

* Both Creator/DitaVonTeese and Music/MarilynManson got flak from each other’s fans when they got together and later married. In addition to the usual insane “removal from the dating pool” reaction, many fans expressed concern about Von Teese [[LoveMakesYouUncreative negatively affecting Manson’s art]]. Then they broke up just as fans were getting used to it (and Von Teese’s fans were blindsided when she started dating a dashing French aristrocrat).



[[folder:Other Famous People's Love Interests]]
* Creator/OrlandoBloom's old girlfriend Kate Bosworth was despised by a large number of fans, and his ex wife (and the mother of his child) Miranda Kerr wasn't doing so well either. An example is [[http://www.journalfen.net/community/dl_anon/339373.html here]]. It's apparently [[http://deadpan.wordpress.com/2009/02/06/live-from-the-set-of-sympathy-for-delicious/ okay]] to yell "A dingo ate my baby" to Miranda because she's Australian, UnfortunateImplications (sexism ''and'' xenophobia) be damned.
** For the most part it seems that the people bashing Kerr are the ones who were either most enamored of Bosworth or fully buy into the notion that [[ActorShipping he and]] [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Viggo Mortensen]] [[ActorShipping (or]] [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Johnny Depp]] [[ActorShipping or]] [[Film/{{Troy}} Eric Bana)]] [[ActorShipping are in a long term relationship]], so there may be some ShipToShipCombat going on.
* Male example: Some Katie Holmes fans bash her ex-husband Creator/TomCruise, accusing him of casting a corrupting influence on her personal life (her conversion to Scientology, her not appearing in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', etc). It is notable that her promising rising career after ''Batman Begins'' took an immediate downturn into significantly smaller low-brow films during their marriage.
* Creator/TedHughes endured a negative reputation among Creator/SylviaPlath fans due to his infidelity and divorcing an emotionally fragile wife such as Sylvia Plath, [[DrivenToSuicide driving her to suicide]]. Editing her poems and shuffling the sequence of her poetry collections did not help matters at all. The fact that his second wife [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assia_Wevill Assia Wevill]] (the woman for whom he left Plath) killed herself and their daughter in the same way Sylvia did doesn't help...
** Ted had been more successful than Sylvia before her death, making her widely resented. Her poorly treated mental problems and equally MadArtist temperament made it relatively easy for Ted to find a FreudianExcuse to cheat on her.
* Spice Girl Mel B was rather despised due to her dating and breaking up with Creator/EddieMurphy, and being the mother of his baby. Eddie also got a lot of hate for this, mainly because they broke up after she became pregnant and '''then''' went on to claim that he wasn't the father (which, as it turned out, he was).
* Sophia Myles, former girlfriend of ''Series/DoctorWho'' star Creator/DavidTennant. Some outraged fans insisted that Myles had ''only'' appeared on the show because Tennant demanded she be given a part, despite reports that they actually met on the set while she was filming her role.
** Oddly, though, Tennant's now wife Creator/GeorgiaMoffett doesn't get much ire...likely because the rather amusing fact that she's ''also'' the daughter of Fifth Doctor Peter Davison outweighs any DieForOurShip tendencies. (Yes, the Doctor married the daughter of the Doctor, and the Doctor's daughter later gave birth to the Doctor's daughter. Talk about Tennant being a PromotedFanboy.)
* After the release of ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movies, a fanbase sprang up believing that Creator/ElijahWood and Dominic Monaghan were a couple in real life. There was a great deal of SlashFic and one of the first known examples of "[[NewMedia wingfic]]". This led to quite a bit of vitriol being directed at both actors' respective girlfriends, but it seems to have died down now.
* There was once a hatelisting for actress Creator/TeaLeoni. For her acting, her roles, or something else? No. Because she married Creator/DavidDuchovny and took him away from his "Twu Wuv", Creator/GillianAnderson. The owner of the site went as far as swearing that Téa and David's kids were not his and Téa tricked him into marrying her, while on the other hand, she also swore Gillian's child was David's and that made them soulmates. One like-minded person even went so far as to claim that Duchovny and Leoni's oldest child was really Gillian's daughter. There was also once a website dedicated to supposedly proving that Leoni has had massive amounts of plastic surgery and was therefore evil. These folks are still around, albeit not as prominent as they used to be. They call themselves Snoggers and still pop up from time to time in the few remaining X-Files message boards. That said, Duchovny's relationship with Leoni supposedly did have a tangible effect on ''Series/TheXFiles'': Duchovny, wanting to be near his wife and encourage her movie career, managed to get the shooting location of the show shifted to Los Angeles from Vancouver. That's why there were fewer episodes set in the woods, and more in the desert, in later seasons. Still no excuse for the bashing, though. Téa Leoni, however, was more than good-natured about all of it -- [[ShipperOnDeck she was practically shipping her husband with Anderson herself!]] It was supposedly Leoni's idea that Scully be naked when Mulder carries her out of the spacecraft in the first movie. She then claimed that when she watched the movie and got to the near-kiss scene, she was saying, "Do it! Do it!" Which makes [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQ4T2_eWbTc this outtake]] even more hilarious.
* Poor, poor Creator/MamoruMiyano. This famous {{seiyuu}} hid the fact that he was getting married and his wife was pregnant (a big deal for him, due to [[IllBoy some health issues]] that almost rendered Miyano infertile) . When he announced his marriage in an interview and a video was uploaded to [[http://www.nicovideo.jp/ Nico Nico Douga]] (the Japanese equivalent of Youtube), Miyano's most rabid Japanese fans started writing ''very'' nasty insults at him and his wife in the comments, even wishing for his career to go down or for the lady to miscarry. [[http://community.livejournal.com/vampire_knight/468566.html Info here.]]
* A mix of this and TheOtherDarrin happened to another VoiceTalent, [[Creator/{{Yukana}} Yukana Nogami]]. Once she got to replace Creator/SaekoShimazu as Four Murasame in the ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' movies, it was rumored that she had slept with the cast director to get the role (they ''were'', apparently, involved in the past, and it wasn't pretty for his marriage). Said rumors never were confirmed, but Japanese fans immediately accused her of being a homewrecker (the guy was divorced again and they blamed Yukana for it) and keep trolling her blog, calling her "slut", "whore" and "bitch"; it got so bad that Yukana had to close her blog temporarily to not get more online slutshaming. However, this [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap didn't stop her popularity from regrowing immensely]] when she played [[Anime/CodeGeass C.C.]].
* Supposedly, the reason Creator/JackieChan doesn't discuss his personal life in interviews anymore is that a Japanese {{fangirl}} jumped in front of a moving subway and killed herself after learning Chan had a girlfriend. Jackie relates that story in his autobiography, as well as an incident where a girl went into the lobby of his production studio's office and drank poison when news of his marriage came out.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' fandom has become ''[[http://www.journalfen.net/community/fandom_wank/1202644.html very]]'' [[http://www.journalfen.net/community/fandom_wank/1206633.html notorious]] for this, much to the ire of those fans who'd rather not get lumped in with the crazies. UpToEleven now that Jared Padalecki announced his wife's pregnancy.
* Deborra-Lee Furness, wife of heartthrob Creator/HughJackman, seems to get a lot of this, intensified by the fact that [[MayDecemberRomance she's a good ten years his senior]]. Never mind that they're actually ''[[HappilyMarried happy]]'' [[FanDumb together]]. Then there are those who insist he's gay and she's a beard, because in some minds, the only possible explanation for such an attractive man to be with an older, slightly plump woman is subterfuge.
* Japanese voice talent Creator/MegumiOgata gets married. [[MayDecemberRomance To a man 13 years her junior]]. The fangirls flipped out because they want her to be a lesbian.
* Some ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fans would like to see Creator/DanielRadcliffe and Creator/EmmaWatson, who play Harry and Hermione respectively in the [[Film/HarryPotter film adaptations]], become a couple offscreen. (This is partly connected to the ShipToShipCombat over Harry/Hermione vs. Ron/Hermione.) Thus a small contingent of fans go up in arms whenever either actor is romantically linked in the press to someone else, although this has died down somewhat since the release of the last book (in which [[spoiler:Ron ]] gets the girl).
** Also from Harry Potter, Jade Olivia. She gets a ''lot'' of hate from fans for dating Creator/TomFelton. To add to this jealousy, she also is criticized for---in their words---looking too thin, having a fake tan and makeup, looking cheap, looking like a smoker, the list goes on. Ironically, Tom is a smoker; or so it's been said.
* Some ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' fans are desperate for Ben Browder and Claudia Black, who play John Crichton and Aeryn Sun respectively, [[ActorShipping to become a real-life couple]]. (Admittedly, they have ''astonishing'' on-screen chemistry, but Ben was married ''ten years'' before the show started; Claudia, meanwhile, postponed her honeymoon to shoot the ''Peacekeeper Wars'' miniseries.) As a result, some despise Ben Browder's wife, Francesca Buller (who has appeared in the show playing four different characters) for "getting in the way of Ben and Claudia". Not only that, but [[{{Hatedom}} some fans]] have [[FanDumb accused her of being a "bad actress"]], [[{{Nepotism}} of only getting to be on the show in the first place because she's Ben's wife]], and apparently, at a convention, someone even told her ''to her face'' that they hated her. Possibly as a result of this, Claudia's husband Jamie has kept a much lower public profile (though as he apparently isn't in show business, this is probably easier)--his last name isn't even known to fans.
* Creator/TetsuyaKakihara provoked many fans, especially of the yuri type, when he posted pics of him dating Creator/MamikoNoto; voice talent romances are very fickle things, but when you date one of Creator/HitomiNabatame's "secret wives", it takes a lot of balls to admit that you are in love with her. Nabatame may be a good sport about her wives, but the fans are not.
** Just for the benefit of the doubt, apparently Japanese otakus have no qualms with same-sex romances (especially the LesYay type), but woe be on to you if you are romantically involved with the opposite sex, especially a voice talent. Since Creator/ShizukaIto and Creator/HitomiNabatame [[LesYay are lesbians]] and in a relationship...or so people thought when Shizuka Ito herself married another man on her 32nd birthday...
* Pick any interview with Creator/KateWinslet and Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio on Website/YouTube and there will be some comment on how they should ditch their current love interests for each other. After all, they had such great chemistry in ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}''! Who cares if Creator/SamMendes and Bar Rafaeli get upset? Who cares that they themselves have repeatedly said that they're LikeBrotherAndSister and now find ''kissing'' awkward? At least Kate and Leo will be together forever.
* Male example: Some of Creator/DitaVonTeese's male fans aimed a lot of hate towards Music/MarilynManson when he got together with her. For that matter, fans of both sexes aimed a lot of hate towards Von Teese for marrying Manson. Many female fans complained about her "stealing" him, while male & female fans both complained about her "tying him down" or "distracting him from his art".
** When the fans began to accept the marriage, Von Teese divorced him and he began to date Creator/EvanRachelWood. They broke up in 2010.
** Dita's latest relationship, with Louis-Marie de Castelbajac, is something of a subversion of this trope. Her fanbase is virtually unanimous in approving of this romance (which may have something to do with the fact that he's tall, gorgeously handsome, possessed of an elegant sartorial sense, a French aristocrat, '''and''' the son of a well-known couturier); in fact, the trope is occasionally inverted in that some people think he's too good for ''her''.
* It's common for fans of film director Creator/FritzLang to blame his wife, screenwriter Thea von Harbou for anything undesirable in one of his early films, in spite of the fact that they often co-wrote the screenplays together. (In the second half of his career the blame is placed on ExecutiveMeddling.) It certainly doesn't help matters that von Harbou joined the Nazi party and wrote propaganda films during the war, while Lang fled to Hollywood and basically had to start his career over.
* Several people think that marrying Music/{{Madonna}} was bad for Creator/GuyRitchie's career - his most critically panned and at the same time least successful movies, ''Swept Away'' (which was [[VanityProject a vehicle for her]]) and ''Revolver'', were [[LoveMakesYouUncreative made during their marriage.]] After they divorced, Ritchie bounced back with the ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' films which were by far his most commercially successful movies.
* Go to Website/YouTube. Type "Ryan Higa and Tarynn Nago" into the search engine. Click on any video about them dating. Chances are, there ''will'' be comments from jealous girls saying things like "Ryan's mine!" and insulting Tarynn. Although Ryan and Tarynn aren't dating anymore, this only shows that any girlfriend Ryan gets will inevitably have to put up with those kinds of fangirls.
* And while you're on Website/YouTube, you may come across Kalel Cullen aka QueenBeeuty/Cozplai. She is the girlfriend of WebVideo/{{Smosh}} member Anthony Padilla. Many hardcore Smoshers look for any reason to badmouth her, make her out to look like a pathological liar, or even say she is going to break up Smosh (this came about when many fans suspected she was moving in with Anthony). Ironically, other Smosh member Ian Hecox's longtime girlfriend Melanie Moat is beloved by even the most hardcore Smoshers, even though she is good friends with Kalel Cullen.
** Thankfully, all of the hate (or most of it, at least) is gone, and a lot of fans say that they are very cute together. It could be possibly that this was assisted by her channel WonderlandWardrobe and then WatchUsLiveAndStuff with Anthony, where the fans got to know her and see her with Anthony better.
* A politics example, more from a PR perspective than actually changing policy: former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau's wife, Margaret, could count as a combination of this and TheLoad. In the leadup to his first election victory in 1968, Trudeau was embraced as a breath of fresh air in the eyes of Liberal Party supporters and Canadians in general: he was young, charismatic, attractive, bilingual and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuddle_duddle incredibly outspoken]]. Traditionally, unlike America's First Lady, Prime Ministers' wives don't play much of a role outside of moral support for their husbands, but Margaret Trudeau grabbed headlines for her wild lifestyle and a supposed affair with Music/MickJagger. [[NeverLiveItDown Most notoriously]], when her husband lost the May 22 1979 election to [[ButtMonkey Joe Clark's]] Conservative Party, she was off partying with Music/TheRollingStones in New York. Margaret fits this role because of the impact her actions had on Trudeau's image; his critics almost always brought up Margaret's lifestyle whenever they wanted to criticize the Prime Minister.
** Of course, Margaret was [[MayDecemberRomance 29 years Trudeau's junior]]; they married when he was 51 and she 22 (having been dating on and off for four years). In the end, she divorced him in 1984, just as his second stint as PM (Joe Clark lasted all of ten months) was ending.
* Some fans of the House/Cuddy ship from ''Series/{{House}}'' desperately wanted Creator/HughLaurie and Lisa Edelstein, who played House and Cuddy, respectively, to hook up in real life. When other fans pointed out that Laurie has been married to his wife, Jo, since 1989 and they have three children together, the shippers [[FanDumb angrily responded that Jo and Hugh had no chemistry and that his on-screen chemistry with Edelstein was enough to "prove" that Laurie and Edelstein belonged together.]]
* Creator/IoanGruffudd was once so receptive to his on-line fans that he even funded ioanonline.com, then the largest fansite dedicated to him, ''out of his own pocket'' and would interact with fans regularly on the board. That all changed when he got engaged to actress Alice Evans. The fans began to post disparaging comments about Evans, attacking her choice of past acting jobs and her character. Gruffudd responded by withdrawing his funding and support for ioanonline, which soon folded because the owner was unable to maintain the substantial monthly cost of running the site.
* Creator/AngelinaJolie. She ''still'' gets flak for getting together with Creator/BradPitt right after his divorce from Creator/JenniferAniston. The couple insist that [[RomanceOnTheSet they fell in love on the set]] of ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith'', ''but'' got together after his divorce, and EVEN Creator/JenniferAniston agreed with that, but jealous Angelina-haters will never let her off.
** What's worse is that many of the haters seem to write for the tabloids, given the countless cover headlines claiming that [[PortmanteauCoupleName Brangelina]] are about to break up (the couple were able to sue [[UsefulNotes/BritishNewspapers The News of the World]] for libel after such a story was published), that Brad hates every relationship Jennifer gets in, that Angelina has threatened Brad and their children with physical abuse, that Angelina is out to ruin Jennifer's life and that she's been secretly working to sabotage Jennifer's movies (somehow), that Brad has openly insulted Jennifer via dismissing their married years, that Brad and Jennifer are secretly sleeping with each other behind Angelina's back, that both Brad and Angelina are bad parents... (et cetera, et cetera...) It's as close to real-life DieForOurShip as you can get.
** On the flipside, Jennifer Aniston gets as much hate from some fans of [[PortmanteauCoupleName Brangelina]]. Lots of tabloids and gossip magazines will not let the woman in peace and insist that Jennifer still can't let go of Brad Pitt, never mind that ''years'' have passed and she dated plenty of people since then. Also, expect fans of Angelina calling her an old maid, make fun of her appearance as well as many {{Take That}}s about how it's all her fault for having rejected Brad's request of kids back then [[UnfortunateImplications instead of fulfilling "her natural role as a mother"]] unlike Angie. It doesn't help that in 2016 when Angelina filed for divorce on Brad which made a lot of people speculate that "Jennifer is celebrating!" despite that Jennifer had already moved on with her life.
** The tabloids... all one needs to do is look at a wardrobe review given by one gossip magazine for the Oscars. They gave Angelina's dress an incredibly low score solely because her being there with Brad must've caused Jennifer "stress and pain". Meanwhile, they gave Jennifer's dress a high score for being "brave enough to be at the Oscars and present an award knowing Brad and Angelina were there". And this was back in 2009!
** In addition, when Angelina appeared in ''Film/TheTourist'' with Creator/JohnnyDepp, several people got into an uproar, instantly assuming, based solely on the fact that Brad, along with Angelina's ex-husbands and ex-girlfriend were [[RomanceOnTheSet co-stars in movies]], that Angelina was going to cheat on Brad with Johnny.
** And then Angelina got a double mastectomy in 2013. Cue several people making nasty, sexist comments amounting to little more than "lol Brad's gonna leave her now".
** Then Angelina filed for divorce on Brad in 2016 which, as expected, got a lot of people going bonkers. Speculations and rumors rose about the reason of the divorce which ranged from Brad "allegedly being abusive to his kids" to "sleeping with his ''Allied'' co-star Creator/MarionCotillard" despite that Marion is happy with the love of her life and had a son, to eagerly awaiting Jennier's thoughts on this while mess despite Jennifer understandably keeping mum about this (to the point of mistaking [[http://colorsofsocialjustice.tumblr.com/post/150758788358/demho3zhatinq-angelina-jolie-filed-for-divorce a parody post on the issue]] for a real interview.)
* Creator/RussellCrowe's wife Danielle Spencer gets quite the hate from her husband's rabid fangirls. I.e, [[http://www.journalfen.net/community/the_hms_stfu/473113.html?thread=15019033#t15019033 this one]] refers to Danielle as "The Wife and Womb Unit" for committing the horrendous sin of being married to him.
* Even if their relationship is denied by those involved, the Nonsten fans have started to talk about the nasty things they will do to Creator/KristenStewart if she is indeed romantically involved with [[strike: Edward]] Creator/RobertPattinson from the Literature/{{Twilight}} movies. Most fans want Robsten to be true and root for the couple to make it.
** And some Robsten fans really don't like Nikki Reed, the actress playing Rosalie Hale. [[http://www.journalfen.net/community/fandom_wank/1244151.html In their words:]]
--> "She (Kristen) and Rob started to get really close again, taking it slow, then MA visited. This was during the Juno weekend. Rob was really upset to say the least. He felt Kristen might be stringing him along or that MA's presence there would change her mind. Nikki apparently tried to comfort him that night by the way....offering Rob her support if he needed her. Fucking bitch."
** And now it's all gone to hell with the revelation that Kristen cheated on Robert with the married director of ''Film/SnowWhiteAndTheHuntsman''. Even when [[YourCheatingHeart it takes TWO to tango and cheat]], all of the heat has gone towards Stewart and not towards the other dude, paired up with the already existing fangirl sexism.
* On Robert Pattinson's side, the above mentioned group viciously descended on singer/musician [[{{Music/FKATwigs}} FKA twigs]] for daring to hamper the (already minuscule) chances of a Kristen Stewart reunion. And as twigs just so happens to be black, the abuse she was made to endure naturally manifested as [[http://jezebel.com/racist-trolls-stalk-fka-twigs-because-shes-dating-rober-1640152835 disgustingly racist.]]
* Director Mitsuo Fukuda has his wife Chiaki Morosawa serve as the story writer for many of his series. Fans tend to blame Morosawa for the dip in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEEDDestiny'''s plot quality... While it ''is'' true that Morosawa was often late with the series's scripts, rumors about her ''[[KickTheDog deliberately]]'' [[{{Chickification}} derailing]] Princess Cagalli's personality out of personal hatred towards [[Creator/NaomiShindo her voice actress]] are simply ''ridiculous''... but the FanDumb love to believe them and eat them like candy, even when there's ''no'' proof about it.
** And it sure didn't help matters that Morosawa was developing ''cancer'' during Destiny's production [[AuthorExistenceFailure and ultimately died of it]], which is the reason why she was late with the scripts of the series. When fandom learnt it, more than one idiot said [[KickTheDog "How the bitch dies, she ruined my series!"]], and some even [[http://khandri.tumblr.com/post/85172578225/things-i-wish-the-gundam-fandom-would-stop-doing made tasteless jokes about her demise.]]

* Creator/OrlandoBloom's old Creator/OrlandoBloom’s former girlfriend Kate Bosworth was despised by a large number of fans, and his ex wife ex-wife (and the mother of his child) Miranda Kerr wasn't doing so well either. An example is [[http://www.journalfen.net/community/dl_anon/339373.html here]]. It's apparently both got some measure of this treatment by the fans. Most of it seems to be ShipToShipCombat (''i.e.'' people who prefer Bosworth don’t like Kerr, or people [[ActorShipping ship Bloom with his costars]]). That still doesn’t make it appropriate to [[http://deadpan.wordpress.com/2009/02/06/live-from-the-set-of-sympathy-for-delicious/ okay]] to yell "A dingo ate my baby" to Miranda harass Kerr with lines about dingo-eating babies]] just because she's Australian, UnfortunateImplications (sexism ''and'' xenophobia) be damned.
** For the most part it seems that the people bashing Kerr are the ones who were either most enamored

* Male example: Some Katie Holmes fans
Creator/KatieHolmes routinely bash her ex-husband Creator/TomCruise, accusing him Creator/TomCruise. They claim her career took a sharp nosedive after they got married (''e.g.'' she was in ''Film/BatmanBegins'' but [[TheOtherDarrin was replaced]] for ''Film/TheDarkKnight''), and they accuse Cruise of casting having a corrupting influence on in her personal life (her conversion to Scientology, life, including converting her not appearing in ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', etc). It is notable that her promising rising career after ''Batman Begins'' took an immediate downturn into significantly smaller low-brow films during their marriage.

* Creator/TedHughes endured a negative reputation among Creator/SylviaPlath fans due to of his wife Creator/SylviaPlath; they blame [[DrivenToSuicide her suicide]] on his infidelity and divorcing an emotionally fragile wife such as Sylvia Plath, [[DrivenToSuicide driving her to suicide]]. Editing her poems and shuffling the sequence of their divorce. He also edited her poetry collections did not and shuffled her works around in her poetry collections, and he became more successful than Sylvia after her death as well. They acknowledge her existing emotional fragility and untreated mental problems, but claim those just provided him an excuse to cheat on her. And it doesn’t help matters at all. The fact that his second wife [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assia_Wevill Assia Wevill]] (the Wevill]], the woman for whom he left Plath) Sylvia, also killed herself and (and their daughter daughter) in the same way Sylvia did doesn't help...
** Ted had been more successful than Sylvia before her death, making her widely resented. Her poorly treated mental problems

* Spice Girl

Eddie also got a lot of hate for this, mainly because they subsequently broke up after up. It got more complicated when she became pregnant and '''then''' went on to claim pregnant, Eddie denied that he wasn't was the father (which, as father, and then it turned out, out he was).

* Sophia Myles, Creator/DavidTennant’s former girlfriend of ''Series/DoctorWho'' star Creator/DavidTennant. Some outraged fans insisted that Sophia Myles had ''only'' got a lot of hatred from fans of ''Series/DoctorWho'', for the usual reasons. Fans even claim she only appeared on the show because Tennant demanded she be given a part, despite reports at Tennant’s insistence, ignoring that [[RomanceOnTheSet they actually met on the set while she was filming her role.
** Oddly, though, Tennant's now

Tennant’s current wife Creator/GeorgiaMoffett doesn't doesn’t get nearly as much ire...ire, but that’s likely because the rather amusing fact that she's ''also'' she’s also the daughter of Fifth Doctor Peter Davison Creator/PeterDavison, which outweighs any DieForOurShip tendencies. (Yes, all the Doctor married {{Shipping}} considerations in the daughter of the Doctor, and the Doctor's daughter later gave birth to the Doctor's daughter. Talk about Tennant being a PromotedFanboy.)
nerdiest communities.
* After Shortly after the release of ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' movies, a fanbase sprang many of the actors’ girlfriends were vilified for breaking up believing that the fans’ ActorShipping slash pairings; the most popular such pairing was Creator/ElijahWood and Dominic Monaghan were a couple in real life. There was a great deal of SlashFic Creator/DominicMonaghan, which led to much hand-wringing and one FanFiction writing.
* Creator/DavidDuchovny’s marriage to Creator/TeaLeoni is much reviled by fans of ''Series/TheXFiles''. The (relatively) saner ones claim that Duchovny, wanting to be closer to his wife, forced the shooting location to move from [[HereThereBeLions Vancouver]] to [[SoCalization Los Angeles]], shifting the tone
of the first known examples of "[[NewMedia wingfic]]". This led to quite a bit of vitriol being directed at both actors' respective girlfriends, but it seems to have died down now.
* There was once a hatelisting
show somewhat. The truly crazy ones [[DieForOurShip hate her for actress Creator/TeaLeoni. For her acting, her roles, or something else? No. Because she married Creator/DavidDuchovny and took him away from interfering with their preferred ship]]: Duchovny [[ActorShipping with his "Twu Wuv", co-star]] Creator/GillianAnderson. The owner of At their height, the site went as far as swearing crazy ones had message boards and hatelistings suggesting that Téa and David's kids were not his and Téa tricked him Leoni “tricked” Duchovny into marrying her, while on the other hand, she also swore Gillian's child was David's and that made them soulmates. One like-minded person even went so far as to claim that Duchovny Leoni’s children were not Duchovny’s (but Anderson’s were), and Leoni's oldest child was really Gillian's daughter. There was also once a website dedicated to supposedly proving that Leoni has had massive amounts of plastic surgery and was therefore evil. These folks are still around, albeit not as prominent as they used to be. They call themselves Snoggers and still pop up from time to time in the few remaining X-Files message boards. That said, Duchovny's relationship with Leoni supposedly did have a tangible effect on ''Series/TheXFiles'': Duchovny, wanting to be near his wife and encourage ([[BeautyEqualsGoodness this apparently making her movie career, managed to get the shooting location of the show shifted to Los Angeles from Vancouver. That's why there were fewer episodes set in the woods, and more in the desert, in later seasons. Still no excuse for the bashing, though. Téa evil]]). Leoni, however, was more than good-natured about oddly, took it all of it -- in stride, practically [[ShipperOnDeck she was practically shipping her husband with Anderson herself!]] Anderson]] herself! It was supposedly Leoni's her idea that Scully be naked when Mulder carries her out of the spacecraft in the first movie. She then movie, and she claimed that when she watched the movie and got to the near-kiss scene, she was saying, "Do it! Do it!" Which openly cheering them on during the AlmostKiss scene (which makes [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQ4T2_eWbTc this outtake]] even more hilarious.
hilarious).
* Poor, poor Creator/MamoruMiyano. This famous {{seiyuu}} hid the fact that he [[{{Seiyuu}} Japanese voice actor]] Creator/MamoruMiyano was getting married aware of this phenomenon and his wife was pregnant (a big deal for him, due tried to [[IllBoy some health issues]] that almost rendered Miyano infertile) . When he announced keep his marriage a secret. But when the nearly-infertile Miyano successfully impregnated his wife, he couldn’t contain his excitement and announced everything in an interview and a video was uploaded to [[http://www.nicovideo.jp/ Nico Nico Douga]] (the Japanese equivalent of Youtube), Miyano's most rabid Japanese fans started writing ''very'' nasty insults at him and his wife in Website/NicoNicoDouga. Fans reacted poorly; the comments, even wishing craziest ones wished for his career to go down or for the lady collapse and his wife to miscarry. [[http://community.livejournal.com/vampire_knight/468566.html Info More details here.]]
* A mix of this and TheOtherDarrin happened to another VoiceTalent, Voice actress [[Creator/{{Yukana}} Yukana Nogami]]. Once Nogami]] was widely vilified when she got to replace Creator/SaekoShimazu replaced Creator/SaezuShimazu as the voice of Four Murasame in the ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' movies, it movies. It was rumored bad enough that she had slept was the ReplacementScrappy; then rumors suggested that she [[CastingCouch got the role by sleeping with the cast director to get the role (they ''were'', apparently, involved director]]. They ''did'' apparently have a relationship in the past, and it wasn't wasn’t pretty for his marriage). Said rumors never were confirmed, but Japanese fans immediately accused her of being a homewrecker (the guy was divorced again and they blamed marriage. Yukana for it) was called a slut and keep trolling her blog, calling her "slut", "whore" and "bitch"; it got a homewrecker; the abuse was so bad nasty that Yukana had to close she briefly shut down her blog temporarily to not get more online slutshaming.

* Supposedly, the reason Creator/JackieChan doesn't discuss has seen this sort of thing happen to his girlfriends and fans, and it unnerves him to the point that he no longer discusses his personal life in interviews anymore is that interviews. In his autobiography, he cites two particularly disturbing instances: one where a Japanese {{fangirl}} {{fangirl}}, upon learning he had a girlfriend, [[DrivenToSuicide jumped in front of a moving subway train]], and killed herself after learning Chan had a girlfriend. Jackie relates that story in his autobiography, as well as an incident second where a girl went reacted to news of his marriage by strolling into the lobby of his production studio's studio’s office and drank poison when news of his marriage came out.
guzzling poison.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' fandom has become ''[[http://www.[[http://www.journalfen.net/community/fandom_wank/1202644.html very]]'' very]] [[http://www.journalfen.net/community/fandom_wank/1206633.html notorious]] for this, much to the ire of those the fans who'd who would rather not get lumped in with the crazies. UpToEleven now that The worst came when Jared Padalecki announced his wife's pregnancy.
wife’s pregnancy; the poor woman was flooded with hateful comments.
* Creator/HughJackman’s wife Deborra-Lee Furness, wife of heartthrob Creator/HughJackman, seems to get Furness gets a lot of this, hatred, intensified by the fact that [[MayDecemberRomance she's she’s a good ten years his senior]]. Never mind that they're actually ''[[HappilyMarried happy]]'' [[FanDumb together]]. Then there are those who They’re HappilyMarried nonetheless. Many fans insist he's Jackman is gay and she's a beard, because in some minds, she’s TheBeard, laboring under the bizarre belief that the only possible explanation reason for such an attractive man to be with an older, slightly plump older woman is subterfuge.
* Japanese voice talent actress Creator/MegumiOgata gets caused no end of headaches from her {{fangirl}}s when she got married. Some were mad because [[MayDecemberRomance To a man he’s 13 years her junior]]. The fangirls younger than she is]]. Others flipped out because [[LesYay they want wanted her to be a lesbian.
* Some ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fans would like to see Creator/DanielRadcliffe and Creator/EmmaWatson, who play Harry and Hermione respectively in the [[Film/HarryPotter film adaptations]], become a couple offscreen. (This is partly connected to the ShipToShipCombat over Harry/Hermione vs. Ron/Hermione.) Thus a small contingent of fans go up in arms whenever either actor is romantically linked in the press to someone else, although this has died down somewhat since the release of the last book (in which [[spoiler:Ron ]] gets the girl).
** Also from Harry Potter, Jade Olivia. She gets a ''lot'' of hate from fans for dating Creator/TomFelton. To add to this jealousy, she also is criticized for---in their words---looking too thin, having a fake tan and makeup, looking cheap, looking like a smoker, the list goes on. Ironically, Tom is a smoker; or so it's been said.
* Some ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' fans are desperate for Ben Browder and Claudia Black, who play John Crichton and Aeryn Sun respectively, [[ActorShipping to become a real-life couple]]. (Admittedly, they have ''astonishing'' on-screen chemistry, but Ben was married ''ten years'' before the show started; Claudia, meanwhile, postponed her honeymoon to shoot the ''Peacekeeper Wars'' miniseries.) As a result, some despise Ben Browder's wife, Francesca Buller (who has appeared in the show playing four different characters) for "getting in the way of Ben and Claudia". Not only that, but [[{{Hatedom}} some fans]] have [[FanDumb accused her of being a "bad actress"]], [[{{Nepotism}} of only getting to be on the show in the first place because she's Ben's wife]], and apparently, at a convention, someone even told her ''to her face'' that they hated her. Possibly as a result of this, Claudia's husband Jamie has kept a much lower public profile (though as he apparently isn't in show business, this is probably easier)--his last name isn't even known to fans.
* Creator/TetsuyaKakihara provoked many fans, especially of the yuri type, when he posted pics of him dating Creator/MamikoNoto; voice talent romances are very fickle things, but when you date one of Creator/HitomiNabatame's "secret wives", it takes a lot of balls to admit that you are in love with her. Nabatame may be a good sport about her wives, but the fans are not.
** Just for the benefit of the doubt, apparently Japanese otakus have no qualms with same-sex romances (especially the LesYay type), but woe be on to you if you are romantically involved with the opposite sex, especially a voice talent. Since Creator/ShizukaIto and Creator/HitomiNabatame [[LesYay are lesbians]] and in a relationship...or so people thought when Shizuka Ito herself married another man on her 32nd birthday...
* Pick any interview with Creator/KateWinslet and Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio on Website/YouTube and there will be some comment on how they should ditch their current love interests for each other. After all, they had such great chemistry in ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}''! Who cares if Creator/SamMendes and Bar Rafaeli get upset? Who cares that they themselves have repeatedly said that they're LikeBrotherAndSister and now find ''kissing'' awkward? At least Kate and Leo will be together forever.
* Male example: Some of Creator/DitaVonTeese's male fans aimed a lot of hate towards Music/MarilynManson when he got together with her. For that matter, fans of both sexes aimed a lot of hate towards Von Teese for marrying Manson. Many female fans complained about her "stealing" him, while male & female fans both complained about her "tying him down" or "distracting him from his art".
** When the fans began to accept the marriage, Von Teese divorced him and he began to date Creator/EvanRachelWood. They broke up in 2010.
** Dita's latest relationship, with Louis-Marie de Castelbajac, is something of a subversion of this trope. Her fanbase is virtually unanimous in approving of this romance (which may have something to do with the fact that he's tall, gorgeously handsome, possessed of an elegant sartorial sense, a French aristocrat, '''and''' the son of a well-known couturier); in fact, the trope is occasionally inverted in that some people think he's too good for ''her''.
* It's common for fans of film director Creator/FritzLang to blame his wife, screenwriter Thea von Harbou for anything undesirable in one of his early films, in spite of the fact that they often co-wrote the screenplays together. (In the second half of his career the blame is placed on ExecutiveMeddling.) It certainly doesn't help matters that von Harbou joined the Nazi party and wrote propaganda films during the war, while Lang fled to Hollywood and basically had to start his career over.
* Several people think that marrying Music/{{Madonna}} was bad for Creator/GuyRitchie's career - his most critically panned and at the same time least successful movies, ''Swept Away'' (which was [[VanityProject a vehicle for her]]) and ''Revolver'', were [[LoveMakesYouUncreative made during their marriage.]] After they divorced, Ritchie bounced back with the ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' films which were by far his most commercially successful movies.
* Go to Website/YouTube. Type "Ryan Higa and Tarynn Nago" into the search engine. Click on any video about them dating. Chances are, there ''will'' be comments from jealous girls saying things like "Ryan's mine!" and insulting Tarynn. Although Ryan and Tarynn aren't dating anymore, this only shows that any girlfriend Ryan gets will inevitably have to put up with those kinds of fangirls.
* And while you're on Website/YouTube, you may come across Kalel Cullen aka QueenBeeuty/Cozplai. She is the girlfriend of WebVideo/{{Smosh}} member Anthony Padilla. Many hardcore Smoshers look for any reason to badmouth her, make her out to look like a pathological liar, or even say she is going to break up Smosh (this came about when many fans suspected she was moving in with Anthony). Ironically, other Smosh member Ian Hecox's longtime girlfriend Melanie Moat is beloved by even the most hardcore Smoshers, even though she is good friends with Kalel Cullen.
** Thankfully, all of the hate (or most of it, at least) is gone, and a lot of fans say that they are very cute together. It could be possibly that this was assisted by her channel WonderlandWardrobe and then WatchUsLiveAndStuff with Anthony, where the fans got to know her and see her with Anthony better.
* A politics example, more from a PR perspective than actually changing policy: former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau's wife, Margaret, could count as a combination of this and TheLoad. In the leadup to his first election victory in 1968, Trudeau was embraced as a breath of fresh air in the eyes of Liberal Party supporters and Canadians in general: he was young, charismatic, attractive, bilingual and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuddle_duddle incredibly outspoken]]. Traditionally, unlike America's First Lady, Prime Ministers' wives don't play much of a role outside of moral support for their husbands, but Margaret Trudeau grabbed headlines for her wild lifestyle and a supposed affair with Music/MickJagger. [[NeverLiveItDown Most notoriously]], when her husband lost the May 22 1979 election to [[ButtMonkey Joe Clark's]] Conservative Party, she was off partying with Music/TheRollingStones in New York. Margaret fits this role because of the impact her actions had on Trudeau's image; his critics almost always brought up Margaret's lifestyle whenever they wanted to criticize the Prime Minister.
** Of course, Margaret was [[MayDecemberRomance 29 years Trudeau's junior]]; they married when he was 51 and she 22 (having been dating on and off for four years). In the end, she divorced him in 1984, just as his second stint as PM (Joe Clark lasted all of ten months) was ending.
* Some fans of the House/Cuddy ship from ''Series/{{House}}'' desperately wanted Creator/HughLaurie and Lisa Edelstein, who played House and Cuddy, respectively, to hook up in real life. When other fans pointed out that Laurie has been married to his wife, Jo, since 1989 and they have three children together, the shippers [[FanDumb angrily responded that Jo and Hugh had no chemistry and that his on-screen chemistry with Edelstein was enough to "prove" that Laurie and Edelstein belonged together.
lesbian.]]
* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fandom is already terrible for its ShipToShipCombat, and this extends to ActorShipping as well. Anyone who dates someone who played in [[Film/HarryPotter the film adaptations]] is going to get a massive dose of irrational fan hatred. The craziest ones insist that Creator/DanielRadcliffe should get together with Creator/EmmaWatson, even though their characters Harry and Hermione don’t hook up in the books or films; that’s how crazy it gets. Perhaps the worst hatred went to Jade Olivia, who dated Creator/TomFelton, portrayer of Draco Malfoy, by-word for [[DracoInLeatherPants bad boy the fangirls lust after]].
* Some ''Series/{{Farscape}}'' fans are desperate for Ben Browder and Claudia Black, who play John Crichton and Aeryn Sun respectively, [[ActorShipping to become a real-life couple]] after seeing how good their chemistry is on screen. Problem is, they’re both married to other people. As such, their significant others get a lot of hate for [[DieForOurShip being in the way of the preferred ship]]. Claudia’s husband Jamie is not in show business and can thus keep a low profile. Browder’s wife Francesca Buller is not so lucky and has even appeared in the show (playing four different characters). The amount of irrational hatred and criticism of her looks, her acting, and [[{{Nepotism}} her being on the show]] is staggering.
* Creator/TetsuyaKakihara provoked many fans by admitting to dating fellow voice talent Creator/MamikoNoto. Part of the problem was that Mamiko was also one of Creator/HitomiNabatame’s “secret wives”, and the {{Otaku}} absolutely ''love'' lesbian romances, so [[HetIsEw if some guy gets in the way of that]], woe betide that guy. At least Nabatame herself is a much better sport.
* Many fans actively ship Creator/KateWinslet and Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio solely on the basis of their chemistry in ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}''. They’re both married to other people (who are repeatedly vilified by the shippers), and they insist that they’re LikeBrotherAndSister and now even find kissing awkward.
* Fans of film director Creator/FritzLang commonly blame his wife, screenwriter Thea von Harbou, for anything they don’t like about his early films. They were a CreatorCouple early in his career; they often co-wrote screenplays. Von Harbou went on to join the Nazi party and wrote propaganda films during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, while Lang fled to Hollywood and basically had to start his career over.
* Music/{{Madonna}} and Creator/GuyRitchie’s relationship is an odd one in that it’s the musician, Madonna, getting more of the hatred for ruining the other artist’s career. In this case, fans consider two of Ritchie’s worst movies, ''Film/SweptAway'' and ''Film/{{Revolver}}'', to have suffered under her direct influence; ''Swept Away'' was even a NonActorVehicle for Madonna. After they divorced, Ritchie bounced back with the ''Film/SherlockHolmes'' films, by far his most commercially successful movies.
* Some fans of ''Series/{{House}}'' want the actors who play House and Cuddy, Creator/HughLaurie and Creator/LisaEdelstein, to [[ActorShipping hook up in real life]]. Laurie has been married to his wife since 1989 and has three children with her; when reminded of this, these fans lambast her for [[FanDumb not having any on-screen chemistry with him.]]
* Creator/IoanGruffudd was once so receptive to his on-line fans that he even funded ioanonline.com, then funded, out of his own pocket, the largest fansite dedicated to him, ''out of his own pocket'' and would interact with fans regularly on the board. him. That all changed when he got engaged to actress Alice Evans. The Evans; fans began to post started posting disparaging comments about Evans, attacking her choice of past acting jobs and her character. her. Gruffudd responded by withdrawing his pulling funding and support for ioanonline, the site, which soon folded because the owner was unable to maintain the substantial monthly cost of running the site.
* Creator/AngelinaJolie. She ''still'' gets flak
collapsed for getting together with lack of funding shortly thereafter.
*
Creator/BradPitt right after his divorce from Creator/JenniferAniston. The couple insist that [[RomanceOnTheSet they fell can’t catch a break, because he’s been in love on the set]] of ''Film/MrAndMrsSmith'', ''but'' got together after his divorce, and EVEN tabloid-fodder romances with first Creator/JenniferAniston agreed and then Creator/AngelinaJolie. Fans who ship him with that, but jealous one girl will routinely hate on the other one. Angelina-haters will never let consider her off.
** What's worse is that many of the haters seem to write for the tabloids, given the countless cover headlines claiming that [[PortmanteauCoupleName Brangelina]] are about to break up (the couple were able to sue [[UsefulNotes/BritishNewspapers The News of the World]] for libel
a vulture who swooped in on him right after such a story was published), he divorced Jennifer; they insist that Brad hates every relationship Jennifer gets in, that Angelina has threatened Brad and their children he’s still in love with physical abuse, Jennifer, that Angelina is out to ruin Jennifer's life a horrible person and mother, and that she's been secretly working they’re always on the verge of breaking up (before they actually did in 2016). The tabloids are very keen to sabotage Jennifer's movies (somehow), get in on the act, enough that Brad has openly insulted Jennifer via dismissing their married years, that Brad and Jennifer are secretly sleeping with each other behind Angelina's back, that both Brad and Angelina are bad parents... (et cetera, et cetera...) It's as close to real-life DieForOurShip as you can get.
** On
once successfully sued the flipside, Jennifer Aniston gets as much hate from some fans ''[[UsefulNotes/BritishNewspapers News of [[PortmanteauCoupleName Brangelina]]. Lots of the World]]'' for publishing such a story. Jennifer-haters hit back, essentially saying she deserved everything her may or may not have done to her; the tabloids and gossip magazines will not let the woman are also in peace and insist that Jennifer still can't let go of Brad Pitt, never mind that ''years'' have passed and she dated plenty of people on ''this'' side, judging everything she’s done since then. Also, expect fans of Angelina calling her an old maid, make fun of her appearance as well as many {{Take That}}s about how it's all her fault for having rejected Brad's request of kids back then [[UnfortunateImplications instead of fulfilling "her natural role as a mother"]] unlike Angie. It doesn't help that in 2016 when Angelina filed for divorce on Brad which made a lot of people speculate that "Jennifer is celebrating!" despite that Jennifer had already moved on with her life.
** The tabloids... all one needs to do is look at a wardrobe review given by one gossip magazine for the Oscars. They gave Angelina's dress an incredibly low score solely because her being there
she broke up with Brad must've caused Jennifer "stress and pain". Meanwhile, they gave Jennifer's dress a high score for being "brave enough to be at the Oscars and present an award knowing Brad and Angelina were there". And this was back in 2009!
** In addition, when Angelina appeared in ''Film/TheTourist'' with Creator/JohnnyDepp, several people got into an uproar, instantly assuming, based solely on the fact
under that Brad, along with Angelina's ex-husbands and ex-girlfriend were [[RomanceOnTheSet co-stars in movies]], that Angelina was going to cheat on Brad with Johnny.
** And then Angelina got a double mastectomy in 2013. Cue several people making nasty, sexist comments amounting to little more than "lol Brad's gonna leave her now".
** Then Angelina filed for divorce on Brad in 2016 which, as expected, got a lot of people going bonkers. Speculations and rumors rose about the reason of the divorce which ranged from Brad "allegedly being abusive to his kids" to "sleeping with his ''Allied'' co-star Creator/MarionCotillard" despite that Marion is happy with the love of her life and had a son, to eagerly awaiting Jennier's thoughts on this while mess despite Jennifer understandably keeping mum about this (to the point of mistaking [[http://colorsofsocialjustice.tumblr.com/post/150758788358/demho3zhatinq-angelina-jolie-filed-for-divorce a parody post on the issue]] for a real interview.)

[[FromBadToWorse The hate only intensifies if she happens to outlive him.]]

Seems to be most prevalent with musicians, but also happens with actors' and athletes' love interests. Whether or not they ''deserve'' the hate is another matter entirely. Here there be FanDumb, for you can rest assured that it will never, ''ever'' occur to any of the people who buy into this trope that the lives and relationships of celebrities are simply ''none of their business'', or that celebrities are as entitled to pursue relationships with whomever they choose as anyone.

Characters like this pop up in fiction, of course, and not just with musicians - any group of friends is liable to complain that the hero's new girlfriend is trying to "break up the FiveManBand". If she's a TemporaryLoveInterest introduced solely to use this plot, the girl in question may even be a direct parody of Music/YokoOno herself. Whether this character is treated with cynicism, sympathy, or indifference varies from show to show.

Related to DungeonmastersGirlfriend, if the love interest and the rest of the band don't see eye-to-eye. Also see LoveMakesYouUncreative if the love interest somehow manages to adversely affect the performance of the musician, actor, athlete, writer, or artist.

Some claim Yoko upset the group dynamic by suggesting changes to the music or influencing John's opinions. While John was indeed inspired by Yoko and her work, arguably at the expense of his friendship with the others, the other Beatles themselves have acknowledged that the break-up was caused less by any scheming or maliciousness on her part (though they maintain that she wasn't the easiest person to get along with) and more by the fact that they'd simply been drifting apart musically and personally for some time, and she just happened to be there when it all imploded, leading to her becoming a scapegoat in the media.

* Music/AliciaKeys has been getting some of this, since she had an affair with Swizz Beats while he was married to Mashonda (though they were separated at the time).
* Music/CourtneyLove, widow of Music/{{Nirvana}} lead Music/KurtCobain. Frequently accused by conspiracy theorists of having Kurt Cobain killed. The fact that she referred to Cobain as an "asshole" shortly after his death didn't help (although she called him an asshole [[HowDareYouDieOnMe for killing himself]], and anger '''is''' a natural stage of grief.) Courtney's hostile relationship with the surviving members of Nirvana and Kurt's family didn't help. She also made a lot of enemies among fellow musicians. Suffice it to say that when Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, Courtney was booed when she stepped up to make a speech.
** The more rational Cobain fans/Love haters will sometimes suggest that Love ''indirectly'' killed Cobain by introducing him to the infamous bad habits that ''did'' take his life. Even when Cobain was ''already'' on the road to addiction way before he met her.
** The timing of Cobain's death right before the release of Hole's ''Live Through This'' makes one wonder. There's also the matter than Eldon Hoke, aka El Duce of Music/TheMentors, claims Love once offered to pay him a large sum of money to off Cobain (though the fact that Hoke was a deranged sex offender who later ended up being killed by a train while drunk doesn't make him the most credible source in the world). Also, Cobain's suicide note didn't actually mention suicide; it read more like a rationalization for Cobain's merely wanting to ''quit the band''.
*** The sheer ''logistics'' of somebody having somehow killed Cobain are absurd. But don't tell that to the [[FanDumb Fandom]]. They'll go apeshit if you even ''DARE'' suggest Courtney Love isn't a horrible human being.
** Nevermind ([[Music/{{Nevermind}} pun definitely intended]]) that Cobain exuded every conceivable sign of being suicidal and severely bipolar for his entire life (including trying to name an album "I Hate Myself and I Want to Die", but producers forced him to change the unsubtle title to "In Utero") and left a suicide note, and that Courtney Love was probably incapable of pulling off such a scheme without getting caught. In fact, Courtney and others staged an intervention shortly before Kurt's death. He went to rehab but then escaped back to Seattle, where he committed suicide.
** Kurt Cobain overdosed quite a few times in his last years, and Love is blamed as trying to "poison" him. Except that she ''[[http://www.alternativenation.net/10-reasons-why-kurt-cobain-wasnt-murdered/ revived him each time]]''. If she wanted to poison him, or wanted him to die, she would certainly wait for him to die before she phoned paramedics to say she "found him" dead.
** Some Nirvana fans claim that Kurt Cobain wrote Hole's ''Music/LiveThroughThis''. Everyone involved in making the record had said that it was Hole's work (although Music/KurtCobain did sing backup on two songs, and you have to actually listen carefully to hear him.)
** Music/{{Primus}} and Music/TomWaits have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxiLXiWRqQs their take on it too]]. Maybe.
* One case where the hate actually turned out to be ''entirely deserved'' (though only seen [[HarsherInHindsight years later]] by all involved ''except'' the other band members, his relatives, and an angry VocalMinority of fans) was when ex-IdolSinger Kaori Moritani married [[Music/ToshimitsuDeyama Toshi]] of Music/XJapan. Soon after the marriage around 1996, Kaori recruited Toshi into a religious group called Home of Heart led by her friend (and likely lover) Masaya/Tooru Kurabuchi, and as a result of joining the religious group, Toshi left Music/XJapan and renounced rock music and VisualKei entirely in 1997, denouncing it as evil, breaking up the band and destroying or straining his friendships with all of his bandmates for around ten to twelve years. It would take until late 2009 for him to realize that the religious group was a ScamReligion and he had been a victim of FinancialAbuse, and to seek a divorce and bankruptcy protection as a result.
* Heather Mills, ex-wife of Beatle Music/PaulMcCartney. Their very public breakup made matters worse, and Mills certainly didn't endear herself to the public after the divorce. The [[AnimalWrongsGroup extremist and confrontational]] approach Mills took to animal rights, in contrast to Linda's and Paul's more moderate stance, didn't help matters. It got to the point where some commenters claimed she had ''beaten out Yoko'' as most hated Beatles love interest.
** Before Heather Mills, there was Linda Eastman. She got far less hate, however (indeed, approximately half the shit that Mills received was based on the fact that [[ReplacementScrappy Paul met and married her not very long after Linda died]]). Linda did get flak for not being [[{{Ojou}} ladylike and upper class]] like Paul's first girlfriend Jane Asher, but most of it was during the period she and Paul performed, with other musicians, as Music/{{Wings}}. Her perceived lack of musical talent led to such cruel jokes as "What do you call a cow with wings?" This ended after Paul returned permanently to his solo career, and the fact that she was [[IllGirl struggling with cancer]] made the public averse to heckling her.
*** There's an in-concert recording in circulation, the authenticity of which was never denied by the [=McCartneys=], of [[BrainBleach Linda's singing isolated off the mixing board]]. Apparently, her microphone was always turned off, and she was just allowed to think that she was up there singing. Being a bad singer doesn't mean she was a horrible bitch like her haters used to say, though.
*** Besides, it was Paul's idea to put Linda in the band. Linda was a photographer, not a musician, and she had her own career before she met Paul. She always admitted that she was no virtuoso. The fact that she and Paul were HappilyMarried for 29 years helped diffuse the hate.
** The other Beatle wives and girlfriends had to deal with this in spades, particularly during the initial rush of Beatlemania. Pattie Boyd and Maureen Cox, the first wives of Music/GeorgeHarrison and Music/RingoStarr respectively, were subjected to beatings, scratchings, and death threats from fans who were upset that "their" boys had been stolen.
* Nancy Spungen was often considered the "Yoko Ono" of seminal British punk band Music/TheSexPistols and has been the subject of considerable controversy. A troubled and possibly mentally ill teenage groupie who got involved with troubled Sex Pistols "bassist" Music/SidVicious, Nancy has been blamed for Sid's heroin addiction and degeneration. She was hated by other Pistols members (being an American didn't help) and ridiculed by the press. While most agree that she did introduce Sid to heroin, he was well-known to have already been regularly abusing a number of other drugs (mostly speed) and her influence on his already dramatically self-destructive behaviour is very likely exaggerated. She was murdered shortly after the Sex Pistols broke up. Although Sid was arrested for the murder, many believe that her murder was committed by a drug dealer in a deal gone bad. [[DestructiveRomance Those crazy kids may just have been meant for each other.]] Keep in mind that Sid's own ''mother'' Anne was a heroin addict, who provided him with his fatal dose. For some, intentionally.
* Brad Nowell of Music/{{Sublime}} was married to his wife, Troy, for all of two weeks before dying of a heroin overdose on the very day the band finished recording the album that would make them famous. It didn't help that the name "Sublime" was copyrighted only under Brad's name, leaving full rights to all of the band's music and merchandising in the hands of his widow, and not his former bandmates, Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh. This culminated in a fierce legal battle when Wilson and Gaugh attempted to reunite the band with a new singer. Although many fans opposed the use of the Sublime name themselves, the argument that the decision to use it should be in the hands of the surviving band members and not the singer's girlfriend has some merit.
* When she was dating Ritchie Neville from the BoyBand ''Five'', Creator/BilliePiper was subject to this. These days, Billie Piper is a household name and well-accepted actress in Britain and no one cares about ''Five'' any more.
* Another Japanese victim: Ami Onuki from Music/PuffyAmiYumi, the wife of Teruhiko "Teru" Kobashi from GLAY. Western fangirls keep insisting they're "just about to get divorced", no matter what Ami does and says about that (like, you know, using ''both'' her engagement and wedding rings ''in almost any Puffy picture she's featured in'').
* The other half of Puffy, Yumi Yoshimura, was subject to a lot of fangirl ire when she married very popular singer Takanori Nishikawa, better known as T.M.Revolution. When Nishikawa divorced her four years later after evidence she had cheated on him surfaced, the hatred intensified, but was surely accompanied by plenty of schadenfreudic glee.
* Megumi Oishi, media talent wife of the J-Rock star Hyde. For his part, Hyde never made a secret of his longtime crush on her, which dates to from before he even met her in person; consequently, there are just as many fans that were very happy at the news of their engagement and marriage.
* Miyavi (first from Due Le Quartz, now in S.K.I.N) marries IdolSinger Miyuki "Melody" Ishikawa. [[http://community.livejournal.com/jrocksecret/30843.html#cutid1 Fangirl wankery ensues.]]
* Rare male example: some fans of the Music/SpiceGirls went up in arms for this reason when David and Victoria Beckham first got engaged. These days feelings seem to be reversed, with Victoria getting flak from David Beckham fans, and even worse if said fangirls are into slashing Beckham with Michael Owen.
* Iman, wife of Music/DavidBowie, gets some of this. (If you believe the Areaologists, it's because she's officially ended the age of Free [=ShArea=].)
** Not as much as Angie, despite the fact that she didn't really ''have'' to DieForOurShip.
* Tiffany Darwich was a popular IdolSinger during the mid and late [[TheEighties 1980]]s. When she had the Music/NewKidsOnTheBlock as back-up artists during her tour, their fame sky-rocketed and soon they were more famous than she was. When Tiffany briefly dated one of the New Kids, Jonathan "Jon" Knight... well, Hell broke loose, and Tiffany was hotly bashed by the same teenage girls who used to love her.
** Made HilariousInHindsight by the fact that Jonathan later revealed he was StraightGay, and that he and Tiffany actually were more like PlatonicLifePartners: ''Tiffany'' was among the first ones who said so, which later Jon himself confirmed. She was rather worried because she was the one who (accidentally) outed Jon to the public, but he told her not to worry about it; he had came out to friends and family years before, and although he never made any real public announcement, it was never really a ''secret.''
* [[HappilyMarried Gerard Way from My Chemical Romance and Lyn-Z from Mindless Self Indulgence]]. Somewhat unusual in that the bitching comes from both bands' fanbases.
** Two words: Eliza Cuts. His marriage to the lovely and talented Lyn-Z is considered by some to be an upgrade by several miles, especially since reading the "I am not just Mrs. [[Music/MyChemicalRomance Gerard Way]]" article.
* Many fans of the progressive metal band Music/{{Queensryche}} feel that ever since lead singer Geoff Tate's wife, Susan, took over the band's management, things have gone downhill. [[http://www.anybodylistening.net/breakdownroom/index.php?topic=1449.0;viewResults This discussion elaborates further on the point]], and Michael Wilton's testimony [[http://www.blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=176587 confirmed as much]] once the band fired both Geoff and Susan Tate in June 2012.
* Marcello Cabuli. The husband of Tarja Turunen from Music/{{Nightwish}}, who's earned a lot of the flak for Tarja's problems with the band, ending in a rather nasty TakeThat firing.
** Also, you wouldn't even ''believe'' how crazy some of Tuomas Holopainen's fangirls can get if they even vaguely suspect someone is his girlfriend. Death threats have been involved.
* Inversion: pretty much nobody doubts that Music/OzzyOsbourne's success and wealth since TheEighties (not to mention his not having died yet from his drug and alcohol abuse) is almost entirely due to his wife and manager Sharon.
** Somewhat inverted inversion: the involvement of Sharon Osbourne in Blizzard of Ozz caused significant discord between Ozzy and his bandmates, the bassist Bob Daisley and drummer Lee Kerslake, and they soon departed from Ozzy's band.
** And don't let us get started on what she did to Music/IronMaiden in Ozzfest 2005...
* Rock guitar hero and nice guy extraordinaire Music/BrianMay got some flak from the press in the late 80's when he left his wife and children for actress Anita Dobson, with whom he'd already been involved for a few years but hitherto strongly denied there'd been anything going on. Fans seemed not to mind, though, and they welcomed her. When it was later revealed Brian had cheated on Anita as well, for a while, with his secretary, both Brian and Anita got redemption and it was the other woman who received public humiliation. She's probably relieved there was no Twitter back then.
* Some Music/{{NSYNC}} fans still blame their demise on Creator/CameronDiaz, who Music/JustinTimberlake began dating around the same time he started to seriously work on his solo career. Music/BritneySpears also received a lot more hatred than was warranted back in the late 90's/early 2000's, when she was dating Timberlake. It was pretty much impossible to go on an *NSYNC message board/chat room where Spears wasn't being bashed ([[DieForOurShip to the point of wishing her dead)]]. Granted, all the Britney-hatred has eased up since then and people who dislike her nowadays will state reasons more valid than [[FanDumb "OH MY GOD SHE STOLE MY MAN!".]]
* Some of [[Music/NineInchNails Trent Reznor's]] fangirls predictably started whining after his engagement about how his relationship distracts him from music (they're just jealous it's not them, clearly). What's weird is seeing a ''[[http://www.theninhotline.net/news/archives/backissue.php?y=09&m=5#1242308700 46-year old fanboy]]'' whining about it. The guy who got sent his thoughts on Trent to assumed he was a disgruntled ''groupie'' at first (being named Irit doesn't help, though).
* David Gilmour's then-girlfriend/now-wife, Polly Samson, wrote the lyrics for Music/PinkFloyd's 1994 album, ''Music/TheDivisionBell''. Gilmour said this was because he's never felt like he was particularly good at writing lyrics (with the lone exception of "Sorrow") - Music/SydBarrett and Music/RogerWaters always took care of that, and once he buggered off Gilmour had to pick up the slack.
* A notable aversion is [[CreatorCouple Rasa Davies, first wife of]] Music/TheKinks' Ray Davies. She contributed some well-regarded backing vocals to several of the band's greatest songs (e.g. "Sunny Afternoon", "Waterloo Sunset", "Autumn Almanac") and acted as a peacemaker between Davies and the rest of the group. After she divorced him, the group recorded some of their worst albums.
* [[Music/TheJonasBrothers Nick Jonas]] dated Music/MileyCyrus. Both of which received a lot of hate for doing that.
** Cyrus' current boyfriend, actor Liam Hemsworth, who she [[RomanceOnTheSet met on the set]] of ''Literature/TheLastSong'', tends to get backlash from "Niley" ''supporters''. It probably didn't help that Miley's move to a more mature image occurred around the same time as her romance with Liam.
** And now, Nick and Delta Goodrem are both getting this since they got together in June 2011.
*** News that, ironically enough, Goodrem was/is a rabid Miley fangirl made some waves online.
*** Music/NickJonas is almost due for a bunch of flak from Delta fans (And former Delta fans) for "Distracting her from her music".
** Music/SelenaGomez also got hate while dating Nick. Pretty much any girl dating a Jonas Brother has to go through this; even Kevin's wife has this problem sometimes.
* Music/{{Gorillaz}}'s ex-guitarist Paula Cracker is not popular among the fans, even though she left before the band ever recorded an album and was replaced by Noodle. Admittedly they have some reason; she was 2D's girlfriend and cheated on him with Murdoc... [[DoubleStandard but HE isn't blamed by the fangirls]].
* Adrienne Armstrong. Music/GreenDay has some pretty crazy fangirls who start online petitions calling for Billie Joe to divorce Adie (with [[{{Yandere}} a select few]] expressing desires to ''[[MurderTheHypotenuse kill]]'' her). Creepy thing is, most of these girls are between the ages of 13 and 16.

* Yoko is not the only love interest of a Beatle to be harangued by the fans:
** John Lennon married his first wife, Cynthia, in 1962; band manager Brian Epstein tried to keep that marriage a secret precisely because he was concerned about the fans’ reaction to a married Beatle. Their cover was blown on the Beatles’ first appearance on ''Series/TheEdSullivanShow'' in 1964, when John got the captain, “SORRY GIRLS, HE’S MARRIED.”
** Music/GeorgeHarrison’s first wife Pattie Boyd and Music/RingoStarr’s first wife Maureen Cox were routinely subject to attacks and death threats, just because fans were upset that “their boys” had been removed from the dating pool.
** Music/PaulMcCartney’s first wife Linda Eastman got a lot of flak from fans. From the start, they compared her unfavorably with Paul’s previous girlfriend, the upper-class and ladylike Jane Asher. The hatred intensified when Paul invited her to join his post-Beatles band Music/{{Wings}}; she was a photographer, not a musician, and by her own admission wasn’t very good. Persistent rumors suggest she was so bad that they would just turn off her microphone during recording sessions. But she and Paul were HappilyMarried for 29 years before her death from cancer, and her struggle with the disease (and Paul’s return to his solo career) [[IllGirl endeared her more]] to the public.
** Paul’s second wife Heather Mills was not so lucky. She was behind early for being a ReplacementScrappy, Paul having met and married her not long after Linda died. She wasn’t as nice a person as Linda either; in particular, the public was put off by her [[AnimalWrongsGroup extreme and confrontational approach to animal rights]]. And she and Paul broke up very publicly and messily; she didn’t endear herself to the public after that either. Some fans claim that she was even worse than Yoko.
* Music/AliciaKeys has been getting got some of this, since she had flak for having an affair with Swizz Beats while he was married to Mashonda (though (although they were separated at the time).
* Music/CourtneyLove, widow of Music/{{Nirvana}} lead Music/KurtCobain. Frequently accused by frontman Music/KurtCobain, is a particularly famous example. Fans blame her for Cobain’s untimely death; conspiracy theorists of having Kurt Cobain killed. The fact that she referred go so far as to Cobain as an "asshole" shortly after his death didn't help (although she called him an asshole [[HowDareYouDieOnMe for killing himself]], and anger '''is''' a natural stage of grief.) Courtney's hostile relationship with the surviving members of Nirvana and Kurt's family didn't help. She also made a lot of enemies among fellow musicians. Suffice it to say that when Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014, Courtney was booed when she stepped up to make a speech.
** The more rational Cobain fans/Love haters will sometimes
suggest that Love ''indirectly'' killed Cobain by introducing him to the infamous bad habits that ''did'' take his life. Even when Cobain was ''already'' on the road to addiction way before he met her.
** The timing of Cobain's death right before the release of Hole's ''Live Through This'' makes one wonder. There's also the matter than Eldon Hoke, aka El Duce of Music/TheMentors, claims Love once offered to pay him a large sum of money to off Cobain (though the fact that Hoke was a deranged sex offender who later ended up being killed by a train while drunk doesn't make him the most credible source in the world). Also, Cobain's suicide note didn't actually mention suicide;
she caused it read more like a rationalization for Cobain's merely wanting to ''quit the band''.
*** The sheer ''logistics'' of somebody having somehow killed Cobain are absurd. But don't tell that to the [[FanDumb Fandom]]. They'll go apeshit if you even ''DARE'' suggest Courtney Love isn't a horrible human being.
** Nevermind ([[Music/{{Nevermind}} pun definitely intended]])
or ordered it. It is known that Cobain exuded every conceivable sign of being suicidal and severely killed himself after a long battle with depression, bipolar for his entire life (including trying disorder, and drug addiction; he even tried to name an album "I “I Hate Myself and I Want to Die", but producers forced him to change the unsubtle title to "In Utero") and Die”. He even left a suicide note, and that Courtney Love which fans claim was probably incapable of pulling off such either forged or just a scheme without getting caught. In fact, Courtney and others staged an intervention shortly before Kurt's death. He went to rehab but then escaped back to Seattle, where he committed suicide.
** Kurt Cobain overdosed quite a few times in his last years, and Love is blamed as trying to "poison" him. Except
rationalization for quitting the band. Some claim that she ''[[http://www.introduced him to his destructive habits (ignoring that he was well on the way to addiction before they met), or that she tried to induce a fatal overdose (ignoring that she’s on record as [[http://www.alternativenation.net/10-reasons-why-kurt-cobain-wasnt-murdered/ revived having saved him each time]]''. If she wanted to poison him, or wanted him to die, she would certainly wait for him to die before she phoned paramedics to say she "found him" dead.
** Some Nirvana fans claim
from several such overdoses]]). It didn’t help that Kurt’s family and bandmates didn’t like her, she made several enemies among other musicians, and she called Kurt Cobain wrote Hole's ''Music/LiveThroughThis''. Everyone involved in making the record had said that it was Hole's work an asshole after his death (although Music/KurtCobain did sing backup on two songs, and you have that might be a [[HowDareYouDieOnMe natural reaction to actually listen carefully to hear him.)
** Music/{{Primus}} and Music/TomWaits have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxiLXiWRqQs their take on it too]]. Maybe.
* One case where the hate actually turned out to be ''entirely deserved'' (though only seen [[HarsherInHindsight years later]] by all involved ''except'' the other band members,
his relatives, and an angry VocalMinority of fans) was suicide]]). Fans still haven’t forgiven her, booing her when ex-IdolSinger she tried to make a speech on Nirvana’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2014.

Kaori Moritani Moritani, a former idol singer, married [[Music/ToshimitsuDeyama Toshi]] of Music/XJapan. Music/XJapan’s Music/ToshimitsuDeyama (better known as Toshi) in 1996. Soon after the marriage around 1996, Kaori after, she recruited Toshi him into a religious group called Home of Heart led by her friend (and likely lover) Masaya/Tooru Kurabuchi, and as a result of joining the religious group, Tooru Kurabuchi. By 1997, Toshi left Music/XJapan would leave the band and renounced denounce rock music and VisualKei entirely in 1997, denouncing it as evil, breaking up evil; the band broke up shortly thereafter, and destroying or straining his friendships with all of his Moritani was vilified by fans and bandmates for around ten to twelve years. It would take until late 2009 for him to realize alike. The fans were vindicated in 2009, when it emerged that the religious group was a ScamReligion and he had been a victim of FinancialAbuse, and to seek a divorce and bankruptcy protection as a result.
* Heather Mills, ex-wife of Beatle Music/PaulMcCartney. Their very public breakup made matters worse, and Mills certainly didn't endear herself to the public after the divorce. The [[AnimalWrongsGroup extremist and confrontational]] approach Mills took to animal rights, in contrast to Linda's and Paul's more moderate stance, didn't help matters. It got to the point where some commenters claimed she had ''beaten out Yoko'' as most hated Beatles love interest.
** Before Heather Mills, there was Linda Eastman. She got far less hate, however (indeed, approximately half the shit
that Mills received was based on the fact that [[ReplacementScrappy Paul met and married her not very long after Linda died]]). Linda did get flak for not being [[{{Ojou}} ladylike and upper class]] like Paul's first girlfriend Jane Asher, but most of it was during the period she and Paul performed, with other musicians, as Music/{{Wings}}. Her perceived lack of musical talent led to such cruel jokes as "What do you call a cow with wings?" This ended after Paul returned permanently to his solo career, and the fact that she was [[IllGirl struggling with cancer]] made the public averse to heckling her.
*** There's an in-concert recording in circulation, the authenticity of which was never denied by the [=McCartneys=], of [[BrainBleach Linda's singing isolated off the mixing board]]. Apparently, her microphone was always turned off, and she was just allowed to think that she was up there singing. Being a bad singer doesn't mean she was a horrible bitch like her haters used to say, though.
*** Besides, it was Paul's idea to put Linda in the band. Linda was a photographer, not a musician, and she
had her own career before she met Paul. She always admitted that she was no virtuoso. The fact that she and Paul were HappilyMarried for 29 years helped diffuse the hate.
** The other Beatle wives and girlfriends had to deal with this in spades, particularly during the initial rush of Beatlemania. Pattie Boyd and Maureen Cox, the first wives of Music/GeorgeHarrison and Music/RingoStarr respectively, were subjected to beatings, scratchings, and death threats

A controversy, as she was a troubled and possibly mentally ill teenage groupie who got involved with troubled Sex Pistols "bassist" Music/SidVicious, Nancy has been “bassist” Music/SidVicious. The rest of the band hated her (being an American didn’t help), and the press ridiculed her. She is often blamed for Sid's Sid’s heroin addiction and degeneration. She was hated by other Pistols members (being an American didn't help) and ridiculed by the press. While most agree that degeneration; while she did introduce Sid him to heroin, he was well-known to have already been regularly abusing a number of other drugs (mostly speed) before they met, and her influence on his already dramatically self-destructive behaviour is very likely exaggerated. She Then she was murdered shortly after the Sex Pistols broke up.

* Brad Nowell of Music/{{Sublime}} was married to his wife, Troy, for all of two weeks before dying of a heroin overdose on the very day the band finished recording the album that would make them famous. It didn't help that the The name "Sublime" “Sublime” was copyrighted only under Brad's name, Brad’s name alone, leaving full rights to all of the band's band’s music and merchandising merchandise in the hands of his widow, and not rather than his former bandmates, bandmates Eric Wilson and Bud Gaugh.

** A lot of people on these same forums criticised Kanye (and Kim by extension) for mentioning her on [[ProductionPosse GOOD Music]]'s collaboration album ''Cruel Summer'' three times (in the three singles) - "Mercy", "Clique" and "Cold" (the last one of these three is a good TakeThat at Kim's ex Kris Humphries).

His first album after his marriage completely tanked, and everyone blamed Tameka for that, to the point that Usher had to defend his married life on live TV. Even after the birth of their second kid, the pressure on them didn't diminish, and soon they got divorced.

* Even Gail Zappa, widow of Music/FrankZappa, gets a lot of hate nowadays. But this has more to do with how she handled Zappa's career after his death than during his life. Two things seem to irk fans the most: 1) Only releasing new albums with Zappa music in small quantities, despite the fact that there are literally four vaults with unreleased recordings by Zappa available in his archives. 2) Protecting Zappa's musical copyright to the point that even people who organize festivals to honor Frank's music are sued.

* The biggest sports equivalent of John and Yoko may be Wayne Gretzky and wife Janet. Many Edmonton Oiler fans still believe Janet's acting career was one of the main reasons Gretzky OK'd the 1988 trade to Los Angeles, beginning the breakup of an Oilers team that won the Stanley Cup five times in seven years.
* Music/JessicaSimpson caught a rather ridiculous amount of flak for dating Dallas Cowboys' QB Tony Romo. In this case, it was from other ''men'' because Romo had a few high-profile bad games shortly afterwards.
** And as befits the trope, some of Simpson's detractors nicknamed her "Yoko Romo."
** Obviously a parody, but Artie Lange referred to her as "the cunt who broke up 98°".
** The Music/JessicaSimpson example is probably the purest version of this trope due to some sports fans, particularly US football fans, being rather superstitious. If his game goes downhill around the same time that he starts dating or marries someone, that someone is to blame for upsetting the apple cart. If it wasn't her, it would have been something else that was going on at that time. Some Cowboys fans accused Jessica of ruining Romo's concentration simply by being in the stands during the games (which begs the question: if he couldn't concentrate on the game--and he actually DID concentrate perfectly fine as far as we can tell--wouldn't it be ''his'' fault and not hers?)
*** In hindsight, it seems unfair to hang Romo's failures on Music/JessicaSimpson. As of 2013 Romo has well established himself as a "December Dud". Playing very poorly late in the season and often choking in clutch situations where the whole season is on the line. As of Summer 2013, in 9 seasons cowboys he has led them to the playoffs only 3 times and only won a single playoff game.
*** Need more proof? His infamous "botched snap" against Seattle, occurred nearly a year before they began dating.
* Romo and Jessica was preceded by Jason Sehorn and Angie Harmon. The fact that Sehorn played for the New York Giants while Harmon was a Cowboys fan didn't help.
* Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has become subject to the ire of many of New England Patriots quarterback Creator/TomBrady's fans for supposed negative influence on his postseason performances. Since the two began dating in 2007, Brady has failed to lead his team to a championship despite winning two MVP awards and twice taking them to the best regular season record in the league (including an undefeated 16-0 in 2007, which ended in one of the biggest upsets in sports history when the Patriots lost the Super Bowl to the New York Giants). Couple this with Bundchen's occasionally controversial public statements, ''especially'' when she was caught on camera criticizing the Patriots' receivers, after she endured being taunted and heckled by rowdy Giants fans, you can see why football fans would be wary of her.
-->''You've got to catch the ball when you're supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can't believe [the Patriots' receivers] dropped the ball so many times.'' -- '''Gisele Bundchen'''
** Brady's Patriots did lose the next two Super Bowls, both of them against the Giants ''and'' Eli Manning, since he, in late 2006, dated and, in 2009, married Gisele. During a roundtable discussion at a fundraiser appearance in California, [[http://boston.cbslocal.com/2012/09/27/tom-brady-recalls-embarrassing-super-bowl-memory-created-by-gisele-bundchen/ Brady regretted what Gisele said]] after learning of the news, and even told her, "Why did you say that?" It remains to be seen if all will be forgiven now that Brady and the Patriots won Super Bowl XLIX against the Seahawks.
* When UsefulNotes/FormulaOne champion Ayrton Senna was killed, his girlfriend Adriane Galisteu managed to get media prominence, in a Creator/ParisHilton kind of way. F1 fans regard her as a self-serving vulture.
** Some people compared her unfavorably to Senna's former girlfriend, ex-porn actress turned children show's host Maria Gracia Meneghel aka Xuxa. Really not helped by Senna saying in two interviews that, after his first wife, Xuxa was the only woman he ever wanted to marry.
*** Even his family ''hated'' Adriane: they gave Xuxa the 'widow's' seat.
** Going to present day F1, Nicole Scherzinger, one of the Pussycat Dolls and Lewis Hamilton's girlfriend, gets a lot of ire from fangirls, mainly for drawing attention to herself and showboating when the camera's on her. She's been blamed for the splitting of Lewis and his manager and father Anthony, nevermind that Anthony apparently was a [[StageMom Stage Dad]]. Yes, some number of people that hate her want to ship Hamilton with Adrian Sutil, but let's note that as of this edit, she's the only present day F1 WAG to get this much ire.
** Ashley Judd is UsefulNotes/IndyCar's equivalent, getting as many accusations about showboating and drawing attention to herself as Scherzinger. It doesn't help that, since UsefulNotes/IndyCar is not as well known as F1 or NASCAR, she ''does'' get more attention than her husband Dario Franchitti in the press, even in his home country of the UK. They have since divorced. WildMassGuessing immediately ensued as to why. (Popular theories include that she was clingy, a view shared by fellow driver Tony Kanaan, chose her family over him, or because it'd be awkward to have who is technically an immigrant for a husband when she's trying to get a Senate seat, back when it was thought she would run for one.) No one was very shocked when they announced they were divorcing, but few were impressed when Ashley tried to use Dario's career ending crash as a reason to get back together with him and claimed they ''were'' back together, despite Dario having already found a new girlfriend.
** Teresa Earnhardt is this in UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}}. She took over Dale Earnhardt, Inc. after Dale Sr.'s death, and did such a good job of running it into the ground that she ended up driving both Michael Waltrip and Dale Earnhardt Jr. from the team (Waltrip moved his own race team to full-time status in response; Junior now drives for Hendrick Motorsports, which initially caused a row since this makes him a teammate to Dale Sr.'s one-time rival Jeff Gordon). After being forced to sell the team in early 2009 due to financial difficulties, she became an InNameOnly partner at the merged Earnhardt Ganassi Racing, and all but stopped showing up at the racetrack (instead, fellow owners Chip Ganassi and Felix Sabates took public duites); the last of "her" drivers, Martin Truex, Jr., fled to Waltrip's team in 2010, and was replaced by a former/returning Ganassi driver, Jamie [=McMurray=]. Three years later, EGR abandoned the engine alliance that she had established with Dale Sr's former owner Richard Childress and became a client of the aforementioned Hendrick Motorsports, which foreshadowed her complete removal from the team's ownership group the next year.
*** It didn't help that she rejected Junior's offer to take over Dale Earnhardt, Inc. back in 2007, which ultimately led to his decision to leave for Hendrick. Junior would later prove that he's an excellent team owner, as seen by his Xfinity/Truck series team JR Motorsports, which regularly fields top-tier teams in each series and won the 2014 Xfinity championship with Chase Elliott behind the wheel. Note that Junior is her stepson, also making her a WickedStepmother of sorts.
* While supporters of the Spanish football team didn't have anything against Sara Carbonero, the HotScoop girlfriend of goalkeeper Casillas (except maybe some jealous female fans), after Spain lost to Switzerland in the 2010 {{FIFA World Cup}}, some put the blame on Sara, accusing her of distracting Casillas ([[http://thelede.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/06/18/spanish-goalkeepers-girlfriend-distracts-british-press/ the foreign press in particular...]]). All was forgiven and forgotten after Spain won the tournament (specially after [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CMmAXEIjuhw this]]).
* R&B singer Toni Braxton is particularly despised by [[UsefulNotes/{{Basketball}} Dallas Mavericks]] fans: During the early 1990's, she allegedly was dating team stars Jason Kidd and Jim Jackson at the same time, sparking a rift between the two and eventually leading to the break up of a potentially powerful Mavericks team. Both Kidd and Jackson have denied ever dating Braxton. Braxton never confirmed or denied it, further stoking fan hate.
* Actress Noureen Dewulf got this treatment from fans of [[UsefulNotes/NationalHockeyLeague the Buffalo Sabres]]. Having married the Vezina Trophy winning goaltender Ryan Miller not long before the start of the 2011-2012 NHL season, she was targeted by Sabres fans and ''[[SeriousBusiness the local media]]'' not long after Miller struggled during the first half of the season. The rumors of Miller requesting a trade to the Anaheim Ducks so he could be closer to his wife only made it worse.
* Roger Federer's wife Mirka is a somewhat complicated case. His most dedicated and knowledgeable fans tend to think highly of her, knowing how much she's contributed to her husband's career. But her looks has been the target of very nasty comments from both fans and media, especially after they had started out with her being the prettier of the pair, he turned out to be BeautifulAllAlong and she lost her athletic build after her own tennis career ended and got fat. Meanwhile, the media has occasionally gone after her, particularly at the end of 2003/beginning of 2004, when she was blamed for his parting with his then-coach (shortly after that she stopped giving interviews). The yellower Swiss press has especially told stories about her dating an older member of the United Arab Emirates royal family before she got involved with Roger, and tried to portray her as controlling.
* This happened to the fastest man in the world and Olympic gold medalist, UsainBolt, who caved in to the pressure from his fans as well as his countrymen's disapproval of his dating a white woman and ended up dumping his girlfriend, stating that he need to focus on the 2012 Track & Field trials and the upcoming the Olympic games.
* As a result of her boyfriend Kevin-Prince Boateng's poor start of the 2012-2013 season, Melissa Satta is getting this not just from [[UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball AC Milan]] fans, but from the manager Massimiliano Allegri as well.
* When Albert Pujols signed a 10-year, $254 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in December 2011, his wife, Deidre, started appearing on St. Louis TV and radio news shows, making statements about why Albert made his decision and what would have made him stay, which led to St. Louis Cardinals fans viewing "DeeDee" as a Yoko figure. Their ire has died down considerably since then, but some people still think he left because she wanted to move to California (but ultimately, she and Albert kept their family in St. Louis).
* The saga of then Manchester United star David Beckham and love interest Victoria ("Posh Spice"). Many Manchester United fans despise her, blaming her negative influence for his move away from the club. Folklore has it that she was too snooty and London-biaised to want to slum it in a [[OopNorth Third World city]] like Manchester, an impossible 200 miles away from London and therefore hideously remote. And besides, Manchester ''had no shops!'' No Selfridges, No Harrods, no Oxford Street... Reality is a lot more complicated than this, and involved famously autocratic boss Alex Ferguson screaming into Beckham's face from two inches away, when Beckham dared imply that (just sometimes) football was less important than, say, his wife's difficult pregnancy with their first child... the breakdown in trust and respect between Beckham and Ferguson was probably a far bigger factor than Victoria in his electing to leave the club. But try telling the fans this...
* Yana Rudovskaya, the second wife of Russian skater Evgeni Plushenko, is apparently [[http://community.livejournal.com/fandomsecrets/611809.html?thread=384095201#t384095201 "too old and wringly and ugly" AND "too opinionated and bitchy" for him.]]
** [[VocalMinority That person was in the minority.]] Most of the Plushenko fans adore her, especially since she had a hand into him coming out of retirement. Everyone agrees that his first wife (and mother of his first child) Maria Ermak was a bitch, though. (Not so surprisingly, she's been blamed for his retirement.)
** The real people who have gone after Rudovskaya are those who objected to Plushenko's less than gracious behavior when he lost the gold in Vancouver, especially those that liked him in general; it was easier for them to believe she spurred him to it, rather than fully blame him alone.
* Although Andre Agassi's marriage to BrookeShields didn't seem to attract much criticism, it didn't escape notice that it was only after the divorce that he began to be seen as something more than unfulfilled promise. Fortunately, his marriage to his second wife (and eventual mother to his children) did not attract any notion of him possibly getting distracted from tennis, what with his second wife being 22-time Grand Slam winner Steffi Graf.

* The biggest sports equivalent of John and Yoko may be [[UsefulNotes/IceHockey Wayne Gretzky]]’s wife Janet has been explicitly compared to Yoko Ono. When they married, Gretzky and wife Janet. Many was in the midst of a streak of four [[UsefulNotes/TheStanleyCup Stanley Cups]] in five years with the Edmonton Oilers. Then he got traded to the Los Angeles Kings, and the Oilers were never quite the same again. Oiler fans still believe Janet's blame Janet for the trade, thinking she wanted to be in L.A. to further her acting career.

** And as befits the trope, some of Simpson's
and thinking about her more than football. Or just their dating, given how superstitious sports fans can be. Simpson’s detractors nicknamed even called her "Yoko Romo."
** Obviously a parody, but Artie Lange referred to her as "the cunt who broke up 98°".
** The Music/JessicaSimpson example is probably the purest version of this trope due to some sports fans, particularly US football fans, being rather superstitious. If his game goes downhill around the same time that he starts dating or marries someone, that someone is to blame for upsetting the apple cart. If it wasn't her, it would have been something else that was going on at that time. Some Cowboys fans accused Jessica of ruining Romo's concentration simply by being in the stands during the games (which begs the question: if he couldn't concentrate on the game--and he actually DID concentrate perfectly fine as far as we can tell--wouldn't it be ''his'' fault and not hers?)
***
“Yoko Romo”. In hindsight, it seems unfair clearly had nothing to hang Romo's failures on Music/JessicaSimpson. As of 2013 Romo has well established himself do with his play, as a "December Dud". Playing very poorly late in the season Romo’s reputation continued even after they broke up, and often choking in clutch situations where the whole season is his most famous gaffe (a botched snap on the line. As of Summer 2013, in 9 seasons cowboys he has led them to the playoffs only 3 times and only won what would have been a single playoff game.
*** Need more proof? His infamous "botched snap" against Seattle, occurred
game-winning field goal) happened nearly a year before they began dating.
* Romo and Jessica was preceded by Jason Sehorn and Angie Harmon. The fact that Sehorn played for the New York Giants while Harmon was a Cowboys fan didn't help.
* Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has become subject to the ire of many of
New England Patriots fans aren’t very enamored with supermodel Gisele Bundchen, wife of Patriots quarterback Creator/TomBrady's fans for supposed negative influence on his postseason performances. Since the two began dating in 2007, Creator/TomBrady. While Brady has failed to lead his team to a championship despite winning two MVP awards and twice taking them to the best regular season record in the league (including an undefeated 16-0 in 2007, which ended in one of the biggest upsets in sports history when had led the Patriots lost to three UsefulNotes/SuperBowl titles in four years, that was before they started dating in 2007. Then the Patriots underwent a bit of a title drought, including losing the 2008 Super Bowl after having won every single game that season. (They finally won another Super Bowl in 2015, though.) Gisele didn’t endear herself to the New York Giants). Couple this with Bundchen's occasionally controversial public statements, ''especially'' fans when she was caught on camera criticizing criticized the Patriots' receivers, after she endured being taunted and heckled by rowdy Giants fans, you can see why football fans would be wary of her.
-->''You've
Patriots’ receivers for not helping Brady (which Brady himself [[http://boston.cbslocal.com/2012/09/27/tom-brady-recalls-embarrassing-super-bowl-memory-created-by-gisele-bundchen/ called her out on]]):
-->''“You’ve
got to catch the ball when you're you’re supposed to catch the ball. My husband cannot [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can't can’t believe [the Patriots' receivers] they dropped the ball so many times.'' -- '''Gisele Bundchen'''
** Brady's Patriots did lose the next two Super Bowls, both of them against the Giants ''and'' Eli Manning, since he, in late 2006, dated and, in 2009, married Gisele. During a roundtable discussion at a fundraiser appearance in California, [[http://boston.cbslocal.com/2012/09/27/tom-brady-recalls-embarrassing-super-bowl-memory-created-by-gisele-bundchen/ Brady regretted what Gisele said]] after learning of the news, and even told her, "Why did you say that?" It remains to be seen if all will be forgiven now that Brady and the Patriots won Super Bowl XLIX against the Seahawks.

* When UsefulNotes/FormulaOne champion Ayrton Senna was killed, his fans very much dislike Adriane Galisteu, girlfriend Adriane Galisteu managed to get media prominence, in a Creator/ParisHilton kind of way. F1 fans champion driver Ayrton Senna. They regard her as a self-serving vulture.
** Some people compared

They also compare her unfavorably to Senna's Senna’s former girlfriend, ex-porn actress turned children show's porn actress-turned-children’s show host Maria Gracia Meneghel aka Xuxa.

* F1 fans also don’t like
Nicole Scherzinger, one of the Pussycat Dolls Music/PussycatDolls and Lewis Hamilton's girlfriend, gets a lot of ire from fangirls, mainly Hamilton’s girlfriend. They claim that she’s an AttentionWhore and blame her for drawing attention to herself and showboating when the camera's on her. She's been blamed for the Lewis splitting of Lewis and up with his manager and his father Anthony, nevermind that Anthony (even though Anthony was apparently was a [[StageMom Stage Dad]]. Yes, some number Dad]] by all accounts). Others think [[DieForOurShip she’s in the way]] of people that hate her want to ship their favorite ship, Hamilton with Adrian Sutil, but let's note that as of this edit, she's the only present day F1 WAG to get this much ire.
** Ashley Judd is UsefulNotes/IndyCar's equivalent, getting as many accusations about showboating and drawing attention to herself as Scherzinger. It doesn't help that, since
Sutil.
*
UsefulNotes/IndyCar driver Dario Franchitti’s wife Ashley Judd is not as well known as F1 or NASCAR, she ''does'' get more Indy Car’s Scherzinger equivalent. Fans considered her an attention whore and resented her being even more popular than her husband Dario Franchitti in the press, even in his home country of the UK. They have since divorced. WildMassGuessing immediately ensued (at least partly because Indy Car is not as to why. (Popular theories include that well-known as F1 or NASCAR). When they divorced, speculation ran rampant; they said she was clingy, a clingy (a view shared by fellow driver Tony Kanaan, Kanaan), chose her family over him, or because it'd didn’t want to be awkward married to have who is technically an immigrant while she was running for a husband when she's trying to get a Senate seat, back when it was thought seat (which she would run for one.) No one was very shocked when never did anyway). And after Dario’s career-ending crash, she claimed that they announced they were divorcing, but few were impressed when Ashley tried to use Dario's career ending crash as a reason to get had gotten back together with him and claimed they ''were'' back together, despite in spite of Dario having already found a new girlfriend.
** * Teresa Earnhardt is this in UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}}. She Earnhardt, wife of UsefulNotes/{{NASCAR}} driver Dale Earnhardt, Sr., took over Dale Earnhardt, Inc. after Dale Sr.'s death, and his fatal crash in 2001. She did such a good job of running it into the ground that she ended up driving drove both Michael Waltrip and her own stepson Dale Earnhardt, Jr. to leave the team. The younger Earnhardt Jr. from the team (Waltrip moved his own race team even jumped ship to full-time status in response; Junior now drives for Hendrick Motorsports, which initially caused a row since this makes him a teammate to Dale Sr.'s one-time home of the elder Earnhardt’s longtime rival Jeff Gordon). After being forced Gordon. Teresa wound up having to sell the team in early 2009 due to financial difficulties, she became an InNameOnly partner at the merged Earnhardt Ganassi Racing, and all but stopped showing up at the was slowly excluded from racetrack (instead, fellow owners Chip Ganassi activities, and Felix Sabates took public duites); saw the last of "her" “her” drivers, Martin Truex, Jr., fled flee to Waltrip's Waltrip’s team in 2010, and was replaced by a former/returning Ganassi driver, Jamie [=McMurray=].

team’s ownership. Dale Jr., meanwhile seems to be quite adept at running his own team, which makes Teresa’s unilateral decision to not let him take over Dale Earnhardt, Inc. back in 2007, which ultimately led to his decision to leave for Hendrick. Junior would later prove that he's an excellent team owner, as seen by his Xfinity/Truck series team JR Motorsports, which regularly fields top-tier teams in each series and won 2007 all the 2014 Xfinity championship with Chase Elliott behind the wheel.
