I know that this trope doesn't allow real life examples, but from this troper's personal experience, it's just a common thing in real life as it is in the fictional world, if non-celebrities also apply. Those who have experienced betrayal or have someone whom you thought respected you turn on you or never respected you to begin with may understand. (Or does this belong to some other trope?)

"In Matthew Stover's novelization of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, it is explained that Mace Windu has an abiding love of the Republic and what it represents, and thus idolizes Chancellor Palpatine as the embodiment of the Republic. So when Anakin tells him that Palpatine is actually Sidious, hoo boy..." Mace Windu may have loved the Republic, but he never idolized Palpatine or saw him as the embodiment of it. In fact, one of his first lines in the book is, "Palpatine has stripped away so many civil liberties it's hard to know where his authority stops."
