Celebrities are people just like the rest of us, but that doesn’t mean that they’re immune to the same ups and downs that plague the rest of us! In fact, sometimes it seems like celebs have even bigger problems than the rest of the population… but maybe that’s just the effect of the spotlight. Either way, here are some celebrities whose epic love stories actually turned out to be tales of total tragedy!
Phil Hartman and Brynn Hartman
Born in Canada, Phil Hartman was well-loved thanks to the eight years he spent making audiences laugh with his hilarious impressions on Saturday Night Live. However, his personal life wasn’t nearly as funny! Hartman was married three times during his life, and his third wife was a mentally unstable drug addict named Brynn Omdahl. In 1998, Omdahl shot Hartman while he slept, and then committed suicide a few hours later! So much for ‘happily ever after’.
