Per TRS, this is now In-Universe Examples Only and No Real Life Examples, Please!:
Cut request declined. A single troper does not decide if a trope should be removed or not. If it's valid of TRS, it should be taken to TRS.
Is there a side trope, or should some note be included, about the tendency in some areas for the backlash to go the other way? In particular, Japanese idols and stars often seem to wind up rejected, ostracized and slandered if they reveal they have a love life. Yes, the boyfriend/girlfriend will also receive a more direct version of this as well once identified, but that doesn't change the fact that the star him/herself will often suffer a lot of personal attacks for "cheating". Some stories imply an idol could be labeled a "slut" and lose all her fandom simply because she was caught holding a boy's hand once.
That seems like Contractual Purity.
Really, there's no trope page for a woman breaking up a group? Well, whatever, I'm altering the line about "sister trope" because this is not a trope page.
There IS a reason why fans of Journey's Steve Perry hate his ex-girlfriend Sherry—he loved her deeply, and she cheated on him with (if I remember the story correctly) her personal trainer. The breakup led to the song "Oh, Sherry", so YMMV on the whole fiasco. (I heard this directly from a former Journey roadie who saw the breakup firsthand, and saw what Perry went through afterward. Even so, to still hate the woman 10 years after the fact is carrying a grudge a little too far...)
Any one think culling the Real Life non-Trope Naming examples as a bad mixture of Thread Mode and complaining about ComplainingAboutPeopleYouDontLike.
I know I'm responding to an entry that's four years old but I strongly agree. However, I must admit I am a big hypocrite with regard to this matter because I just added an entry to the Real Life examples.
In any case, this trope should definitely go to the Trope Repair Shop.
It won't anywhere soon. We have lots of other work to do there, adding more is unproductive.
Do we have a separate trope where the Yoko is actually part of the group? Or does that fall into this one?
This seemed to be getting a bit Thread Mode-y — in particular, we probably don't need the tangental discussion about which Beatle had the biggest ego — so I tried to summarise it and moved the excess here.
The summary should at least have some sort of mention of how Yoko Ono was the one that got John into heroin and other hard drugs during the Let It Be sessions, and she was known for her open contempt, both in public and at the sessions themselves, for George, Ringo, and Paul and how she belittled their accomplishments both individually and as a band. As a result, John was prone to some very horrible mood swings and he essentially had a very influential voice on his shoulder encouraging him to move on.
So yeah, maybe there were more factors in the breakup than just her but that doesn't change that she definitely played a big part in it.
Adam C: Yeah, the page image refers to John's first wife, not Yoko. Could we put up a picture of them together instead? Maybe in that bed conference they had or something?

How well does it match the trope?
