Breakups can bring out the worst in people. Especially when breakups end up bad. Bad breakups can lead to immature actions, bruised egos, and just can ruin lives. The following cautionary tales can serve as a reminder to take the high road when dealing with a bad breakup situation.
Bad Breakup Stories
Karl Thimm Jr, a New York police officer, was involved in a bad breakup. He sent his wife an enormous amount of demeaning emails during their child custody battle. Some of his angry words to his wife included “remember the phrase Welcome to McDonald’s can I take your order” and “btw you look pregnant.” Thanks to these emails along with the fact that Karl Thimm Jr. refused to take a drug test, he received a 15 day jail sentence.
Comedian Sherri Shepard and her ex-husband, Lamar Sally, are involved in an unusual custody battle, which makes the both of them look bad. While they were married, they hired a surrogate to carry a baby for them using a donor’s egg and Lamar’s sperm. However, things got bad and the relationship went south before the baby was born. Now, Sherri Shepard claims she was tricked into having this child and wants absolutely nothing to do with it. The case was taken to court and the judge ruled that Sherri Shepard is responsible. Talk about a bad breakup.
The king of all bad breakups has to be Mel Gibson. He had left a bunch of explosive voicemails for his former girlfriend, Oksana Grigoreeva. Some of the messages said “I am going to come and burn your f**king house down but you will blow me first.” Another message said “You look like a f**king pig in heat and it will get you raped by a pack of ni***rs… and it will be your fault.” This bad breakup certainly was the beginning of Mel Gibson’s fall from grace.
Avoiding Bad Breakups
When it comes to breakups, do not send your ex any messages, such as texts, emails, or voicemails, that you would be embarrassed for your own mother to hear. If things are too heated, consider having a third party mediate your breakup. Remember that the best revenge is living a good life. Nothing looks more pathetic than an adult that resorts to name calling and refuses to move on.
Be happy that you are finally free of this person. No need to have a bad breakup. Do whatever you want as long as you keep your dignity.
