It seems the world of Hollywood has as much drama off-screen as it does on, and while some celebrity couples are in it for the long haul, others don’t work out as easily, but then there are those who make it work after an initial break-up. The old addage goes “If you love something set it free, if it comes back it is truly yours” and it applies quite nicely to these 10 celebrity couples who came back as a stronger couple than before after a break. Check out 10 celebrity couples who got back together after a break-up!
10. Patrick Dempsey and Jillian Fink
Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey surprised everyone when it was announced in January 2015 that his wife of almost 16 years, Jillian Fink, had filed for divorce. Following the news there were reports of fighting in the relationship, and Dempsey’s Malibu home went up for sale; however, reports quickly went quiet and later in the year in November photographs popped up of the two holding hands while strolling around Paris. It seems the pair are continuing to work on their relationship and have not moved forward with their divorce proceedings.
9. Gregg and NeNe Leakes
Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes and her relationship with Gregg Leakes started long before they were on reality TV, first marrying in 1997. Unfortunately the two divorced in 2011 amid reports that NeNe had turned into a diva and things with Gregg had gotten bad. It turns out, however, their love was meant to be as they not only got back together, but announced their engagement in January 2013. The two then remarried in June in a wedding taped by Bravo for I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding and seem to be happier than ever now.

After accepting, the two were married in January 2006, and after several rumors, Pink confirmed she and Hart had separated in February 2008.

The pair began dating while filming The Last Song together in June 2009, but in 2010, the two called it quits after Miley was spotted getting close to a costar while filming LOL in Detroit and Liam was seen surrounded by blonde beauties in Newport Beach. However, when Miley came back to L.A., they quickly got back together, became engaged and moved in together; however, it all fell apart again when they called off their engagement in September 2013, but in interviews always stated how much they loved each other. The two got back together and in December 2018 finally said “I Do” in a private wedding.
