“All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” ~  Leo Tolstoy  

Here is what the celebs are saying about their parents’ divorce:

.

Nicole Richie:

 In a 2004 interview with Oprah,
Nicole Richie revealed how her dad Lionel Ritchie’s 1993 divorce from her mother, Brenda, affected her at eight years old: “When my dad divorced my mom it was kind of like him leaving me also.”

 

Justin Bieber:  

During a 2010 concert, Justin Bieber reportedly broke down after performing “Down to Earth,” a song inspired by his parent’s split, which happened when the pop star was three.

“My parents splitting up is definitely not one of the highlights of my life. It’s sad, the kid experiences feeling like one of his parents left,” Bieber reportedly told Twist magazine in June 2010. “It makes you not feel so good. I think a lot of kids have had their parents split up, and they should know that it wasn’t because of something they did.”

 Pink: 
In a 2007 interview with the Sunday Telegraph, singer Pink said she morphed into an angry teen following her parent’s divorce. “I was never allowed to go over to any of my friends’ houses when I was little, because I was the bad influence,” she said. “None of their parents liked me and my own parents were scared to death of me — and for me.”

 Justin Timberlake: 
In the August 2011 issue of Elle, Justin Timberlake talked about the impact his parent’s divorce had on him. “My parents divorced when I was three. I’m humbly and honestly finding out that I have a lot of issues with that,” Timberlake told the magazine. “I’m finding more and more that… I’m going to break the chain because that’s what you want to do, break the chain of your parents. But at some point, it’s in your blood and you have a thing that happens and you’re like, ‘Holy s**t, my parents did that.'”

Mary Kate Olsen and Ashley:

A co-celeb shared their observation: “They saw dad and mom fight alot- and then suddenly dad was gone. He stays an active part of their lives, but he isn’t there to tuck them into bed or read them stories.”

“They’re unhappy. It’s sad to see them.”
