Breaking up is hard to do -- especially when you have a huge fortune, an even bigger ego, and want custody of your kids, as many of these stars have learned. With what would have been Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger's 20-year wedding anniversary coming up on Aug. 19, 2013, join us as we take a walk down memory lane and rehash their acrimonious divorce -- then relive more of the worst celebrity splits of the last few decades.
Kim and Alec
One of the best-looking couples of the '90s was also one of its most tumultuous. Kim and Alec's fiery romance started when they co-starred in 1991's "The Marrying Man," and by 1995, Alec had followed suit -- and welcomed daughter Ireland with his wife. But their marriage started to crumble as whispers of Alec's temper and Kim's mental health issues grew louder. A bitter custody battle ranged on for years -- will anyone ever forget the voicemail Alec left his little girl in which he called her a "rude little pig"?! The "30 Rock" star, 55, also accused Kim, 59, of parental alienation and went on to write a book about his experiences, "A Promise to Ourselves: A Journey Through Fatherhood and Divorce." Time may heal all wounds, as Alec seems to have buried the hatchet in recent years. "[Ireland's] mother is obviously one of the most beautiful women that [has] ever lived," Alec recently told Access Hollywood. "And even divorce doesn't muddy my view of that."
