Our lives revolve around our phones. Calls, messages, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp– we cannot live without them! Technology has now advanced so much, that we can use our phones to do pretty much everything. Even socializing does not require us to be within physical proximity of people. When the situation is especially uncomfortable, a chat over the phone always seems like the preferable option. And what causes more discomfort than a breakup? Not just normal people, even celebs are using phones as their medium of dumping their SOs. Voicemails, texts, WhatsApp messages are the go-to choices rather than a one-on-one conversation. Take a look at the celebrities who were dumped over the phone:
Remember when the Dark Horse singer used to be married to comedian Russell Brand? According to Katy, Brand ended their marriage via a text message saying he wanted a divorce.
As Rachel, Aniston left her fiancé at the altar, dumped Ross countless times, and even broke Joey’s heart. But in reality, she was left heartbroken, first by her husband Brad Pitt, and later by singer John Mayer, who broke up with her by text message.
Over the years, the Bad Blood singer has been linked to many men, and each split became more scandalous than the last. But Joe Jonas takes the cake of bad breakups when he dumped her through a 27-second voice message.
Taylor later did the bad deed herself when she split from the Summer singer after his car accident. Apparently, she called him on the phone, saying she needed some space.
Zayn Malik once admitted being dumped over the phone before he became famous. He later used the same technique on his fiancée to end their relationship.
