* 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 despite the band’s “no girlfriends in the studio” rule, and he cited her as a big inspiration to his work. The other Beatles, to their credit, have been far more fair to Yoko than the rest of the world regarding their breakup. While they maintain that she wasn't the easier person to get along with, they admitted their breakup was simply because they had been drifting apart musically and personally for some time, and Yoko just happened to be there when it all imploded.

** WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob [[https://www.facebook.com/TheCinemaSnob/posts/414403215260763 broke up with his wife Jillian]], whom the fans actually kind of liked. They instead turned their ire onto whomever Brad started dating after her. Brad tried to tone it down by insisting that [[AmicableExes the split was mutual]] and they were BetterAsFriends, but it didn't stop the hatred. They hated his first girlfriend just because she wasn't Jillian. They hated his second for better reasons, as she [[spoiler:ran off with Brad's then-friend Jake]]. They accepted Violet for a while, but then she broke up with him (when he was on the verge of proposing, no less), and they went bananas anyway.

* UsefulNotes/FormulaOne fans very much dislike Adriane Galisteu, girlfriend of champion driver Ayrton Senna. They regard her as a self-serving vulture, and hate how she used her husband’s death in a race crash to seemingly draw attention to herself. They also compare her unfavorably to Senna’s former girlfriend, porn actress-turned-children’s show host Maria Gracia Meneghel (better known as Xuxa); Senna himself even claimed that after his first wife, Xuxa was the only woman he ever wanted to marry, and Senna’s family gave Xuxa (and not Galisteu) the “widow’s seat” at his funeral.
* F1 fans also don’t like Nicole Scherzinger, one of the Music/PussycatDolls and Lewis Hamilton’s girlfriend. They claim that she’s an AttentionWhore and blame her for Lewis splitting up with his manager and his father Anthony (even though Anthony was apparently a [[StageMom Stage Dad]] by all accounts). Others think [[DieForOurShip she’s in the way]] of their favorite ship, Hamilton with Adrian Sutil.

* Tennis player Boris Becker and his wife Barbara faced considerable backlash when they married, as he was white and she African-American. So much so that the couple needed 24/7 police protection for a time. Among the ''less'' derisive comments was that Barbara was a "black witch" who had corrupted him.

* A platonic version in ''Literature/TheBabysittersClub'' book ''Claudia & The New Girl'', the very tagline of which is "Claudia might give up the Club — and it's all the new girl's fault!". As indicated by the title, Claudia befriends Ashley, a new student at school, and begins spending more time with her than her other friends, as Ashley, like Claudia, is an artist. Eventually, enough tension rises for both Ashley and the other club members to demand that Claudia choose one or the other. By the book's end, Claudia makes it clear that she will not give up either and that both parties were out of line ask such a thing. Ashley reappears in several books, and while she never again suggests that Claudia give up babysitting or the club, it's still obvious that she holds them and it in contempt.

* People were relieved when Creator/JenniferLawrence broke up with her ''Film/Mother2017'' director Creator/DarrenAronofsky, mainly due to the [[MayDecemberRomance was 21 year age gap]] and the fact that the movie wasn't so well-received.

* ''Series/QuantumLeap''. When Sam leaps into an investigative reporter, he falls in love with the psychic helping him investigate a series of murders. His partner is displeased and tells her, "Well, if we're going to break up, I guess you're a pretty good reason." She sincerely tells him that that's she ''not'' trying to ruin their partnership/friendship, but he doesn't believe her--"Really? Because it seems like that's what been happening." [[note]] It turns out he doesn't just resent her supposed interference, he's worried that she'll figure out that ''he's'' the killer they're looking for. [[/note]]

** Anya sees Willow as Yoko for her relationship with Xander. You can't say she's wrong. It's big plot point for the season 5 episode "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS5E11Triangle Triangle]]".
