Justin, Selena and Music's Top 10 Heartbreaking Split-Ups
7. Gwen Stefani and Tony Kanal
Gwen has since gone on record stating that being forced to confront the breakup and her ex for 28 consecutive months on tour opened her up creatively, paving the way for future expressions such as, uh, "Hollaback Girl." The failed relationship certainly didn't put her off musical partnerships, either -- she's been married to Bush's Gavin Rosdale since 2000.
6. Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean
The relationship between Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill was so combustible that it blew up one of the most celebrated hip-hop groups of the '90s. The insanely talented pair began hooking up around the time the trio's classic multiplatinum smash, The Score, was released in 1996. Problem was, Wyclef was married at the time. The illicit relationship led to intense fights that killed the Fugees at the very height of their success.
The hurt feelings did prove, however, to inspire another classic record. The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill went on to be a Grammy-winning superhit, and it's no secret today that the groundbreaking tunes were written as a major-league kiss-off to 'Clef. Lauryn Hill went on to conceive five children with Rohan Marley, one of Bob's many sons. "Stability" may not be a word closely associated with her these days, but it's tough to claim that she hasn't moved on.
