* LetsPlay/DarksydePhil was [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment pretty divisive]] to begin with, but it only got worse when he shacked up with [=PandaLee=], whom fans consider to be a nuisance whenever she appears in any of his Let's Plays. Finally getting a job of her own hasn't averted accusations of being a mere gold digger because she repeatedly insults her employers on Twitter, and the couple have a very odd relationship dynamic that has been compared more to a father-daughter relationship than a romantic one (e.g. they go out on dates to places couples usually don't go to, like the zoo). They haven't been observed being romantic with each other either, and all of this is to say nothing about the [[MayDecemberRomance considerable gap in their ages]], to the point that trolls call her [[PaedoHunt his daughter]].

* Producer Glenn Fricker has never been through this himself, but he has seen it ruin so many promising careers it's something he warns about ''very'' often on his YouTube channel. He is very much against romantic partners being in the same band, or any romantic partner who isn't in the band hanging out at the studio during recording. He claims to have designated a specific uncomfortable spot in the corner for the LoveInterest to sit while his/her partner works in the studio. He says it works so well they leave and never return. His main examples are of girlfriends tailing their rockstar boyfriends, but he [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwuzIIPZ9A8 will gladly swap the genders around to show he's an equal-opportunity opponent here]].

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' fandom, many people bash Creator/MattSmith (the 11th Doctor)'s girlfriend, DaisyLowe, in favor of him hooking up [[ActorShipping with his on-screen former "love interest"]] Creator/KarenGillan (Amy Pond), or with themselves.

* Creator/BradPitt can’t catch a break, because he’s been in tabloid-fodder romances with first Creator/JenniferAniston and then Creator/AngelinaJolie. Fans who ship him with one girl will routinely hate on the other one. Angelina-haters consider her a vulture who swooped in on him right after he divorced Jennifer; they insist that he’s still in love with Jennifer, that Angelina is a horrible person and mother, and that they’re always on the verge of breaking up (before they actually did in 2016). The tabloids are very keen to get in on the act, enough that Brad and Angelina once successfully sued the ''[[UsefulNotes/BritishNewspapers News 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 are also in on ''this'' side, judging everything she’s done since she broke up with Brad under that microscope.

* Fans of Creator/KatieHolmes routinely bash her ex-husband 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 having a corrupting influence in her personal life, including converting her to Scientology.

* The {{Trope Namer|s}} is Music/YokoOno, widow of Music/TheBeatles’ Music/JohnLennon. She’s [[{{Misblamed}} frequently blamed]] for breaking up the Beatles; fans and the media accuse her of monopolizing John’s attention, influencing his music and opinions, and just upsetting group dynamics. It is known that John would routinely bring her to recording sessions (in violation of the band’s longstanding “no girlfriends in the studio” rule), and he cited her as a big inspiration to his work. The other Beatles, for their part, don’t specifically blame her for the breakup, or at least don’t consider her scheming or malicious; they instead blame it on the group drifting apart musically and personally for some time. Yoko just happened to be there when it all imploded (although they do maintain that she wasn’t the easiest person to get along with).

* 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. The most she ''can'' be blamed for (whether or not she should) is taking Romo and some teammates to Cabo San Lucas in the team's week off before a playoff game, which they would up losing.

** There are fans who hate Wrestling/JohnCena's girlfriend, [[Wrestling/BellaTwins Nikki Bella]], and call her a GoldDigger based solely on her behavior on ''Series/TotalDivas''.
** When Wrestling/{{Lita}} left Wrestling/MattHardy for Wrestling/{{Edge}}, the scandal forced her to retire because she couldn't shake off the XPacHeat.

** There are fans who hate Wrestling/JohnCena's girlfriend, [[Wrestling/BellaTwins Nikki Bella]], and call her a GoldDigger based solely on her behavior on ''Series/TotalDivas''. \n Then there are the opposite set who vilify ''him'' for not wanting children or marrying Nikki - despite the fact that he stated it openly and reasonably to her from the start, and Nikki herself affirms to her family that she knew what she was getting into.
** When Wrestling/{{Lita}} left Wrestling/MattHardy for Wrestling/{{Edge}}, the scandal forced her to retire because she couldn't shake off the XPacHeat. After Matt Hardy became an internet laughing stock in 2011, fans switched their sympathy to Lita for how she was essentially forced out of a job.
** Due to John Morrison's on-again-off-again relationship with {{Wrestling/Melina}}, she tends to get blamed for everything he does involving her. Apparently it's her fault that he infamously snubbed Trish Stratus after their match at [=WrestleMania=] 27 because he thought she should have been in the match instead, or that he kept bringing her to shows after she was released. The IWC paints him as an innocent henpecked boyfriend under her cruel spell. It's also apparently because of Melina that he never became a world champion, despite the company having no problem putting five titles on her during her time with the company.
** Wrestling/VickieGuerrero received massive amounts of smark hate over appearing as an on-screen character after Eddie's passing, as she was apparently exploiting his memory by working in the same company - to the point where one sign read "The wrong Guerrero died" in the crowd. [[XPacHeat And because they found her annoying]]. She did however turn this around and evolve into a popular character in her own right.
** A gender flipped example came when the WWE management disliked that ''Series/TotalDivas'' showed the female employees in relationships, effectively ruining their desirability for a lot of male fans. Trinity angsts over this on an episode, where she's hesitant to be seen wearing her engagement ring on TV.
** Kristal Marshall claimed that she was released from WWE because her boyfriend Bobby Lashley was unhappy at some of the segments she was being asked to do, and he kept complaining to management. She suspects that they hoped if she was released, he would simply find another Diva on the roster.

* UsefulNotes/AnneBoleyn at the time she was at court was imagined as an evil, ambitious homewrecker who seduced Henry VIII away from his wife Catherine of Aragon. This ignored the fact that Henry had doubts about his marriage long before Anne arrived at court, and had affairs with other women and produced at least one illegitimate child out of it (Henry Fitzroy, son of a woman called Bessie Blount). Anne simply refused to become his mistress, and ended up becoming Queen instead. Most of this is because we actually know less about her than we should - since all her letters and writing were destroyed after her execution. Plenty of HistoricalFiction uses this narrative - most famously ''Literature/TheOtherBoleynGirl''.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Talisa marrying Robb was already widely frowned upon while they were still alive. Years after the Red Wedding, even previously loyal Stark bannermen don't remember her as their late queen, but instead as a "foreign whore" (- Robett Glover) who brought the bane of House Stark and the whole Northern cause.
