Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis
Jackie and Kelso forever! The That '70s Show alumni had the perfect response to a tabloid report that they'd broken up. In a video posted to Instagram, Kutcher asked his wife some questions about their relationship status: "Babe, what's happening? What's going on?"
Showing a photo of a recent cover, Kunis replied, "It's over between us." During their playful exchange, Kunis reported that she "felt suffocated" and added, "Also, I took the kids."
"You got the kids? I don't get the kids?!" Kutcher joked.
The couple, who married in July 2015 and are parents to daughter Wyatt, 4, and son Dimitri, 2, continued to laugh off the rumors.
The model assured fans that her marriage to Justin Bieber is going strong after an outlet claimed that the couple was contending with "trust issues" and going through a "hard time."
"Don't believe what [you] read on the internet, folks," she wrote alongside a "fake news" graphic on her Instagram Story following the report.
While their relationship is still sturdy, Bieber has been open with fans about the personal difficulties he's currently experiencing. "Been struggling a lot. Just feeling super disconnected and weird. I always bounce back, so I'm not worried just wanted to reach out and ask for [you] guys to pray for me," he wrote on Instagram earlier this month. Days before Baldwin's denial of marriage tensions, the spouses were spotted having what appeared to be an emotional conversation while spending time together in Laguna Beach.
After a photo of a man who looked like Scott making out with a woman surfaced, the “Sicko Mode” rapper addressed the photo and false allegations of cheating head-on. “Trolls always wanna create some fake s— to destroy real love,” Scott wrote on his Instagram Story. “I hate acknowledging s—. But quit [trying] to take joy from s— that’s good. I pray god blocks out all evil,” Scott continued. It looks like all is more than well with Stormi’s mom and dad.
Reynolds’ trademark wit was on overdrive in 2018 thanks to breakup rumors sparked by a headline that he and wife Blake Lively were “struggling to spend quality time” together. Continuing the cycle of his and Lively’s hilarious tendency to troll each other, he retweeted the article, joking, “I wish. I could use a little ‘me time.'”
His joke fanned the flames, but the Deadpool actor can’t seem to resist playing with fire. Responding to yet another headline about the couple stepping out with Reynolds’ mom for the A Quiet Place premiere amid split rumors, Reynolds reassured fans once again, tweeting, “We’re never splitting. She’ll always be my mom. No matter how much jazz-cabbage she smokes with her rollerblading friends.”
When a fan left a comment on the athlete's Instagram account, insinuating Fisher and wife Carrie Underwood were on the brink of a split, the NHL player took matters into his own hands. "We've never been better. Thanks," the athlete swiftly responded after a fan wrote that she was "praying for you and Carrie."
After a fan tweeted she was sick of the breakup rumors surrounding Fixer Upper stars and real-life couple Chip and Joanna Gaines, Chip assured Twitter a split isn't in their future. "Won't ever happen.. you can take that to the bank!" he wrote, adding the hashtag: "#loveOfMyLife."
After a magazine published that the marriage between the Modern Family actress and her husband, Joe Manganiello, was ending because of an alleged affair, the couple took to social media to shut down the rumors and slam the editor.
"The editor of this magazine is an idiot," Vergara wrote on Instagram with a laughing emoji. "If he is going to have my ring removed to created a 'fake' 'news' he should have made sure that he removed from social media all the other pictures of that award night in Rome where Im wearing it. By the way…thats my friend the producer of the movie Bent that I was shooting in Rome and who came to spend Easter at my home the week later."
As for Manganiello, the actor wrote: "They are run by malicious trash. Do the world a favor and don’t buy their garbage."
The Thor star and his actress-wife, Elsa Pataky, are on the road to becoming Hollywood's next big breakup — if you believe the tabloids, that is. Hemsworth and Pataky put the rumors to rest with a playful Instagram caption: "Looking for a new wife according to … misleading outlets!" he writes, sharing a snap of the duo on a boat with Hemsworth shielding his eyes to look out into the distance. "Honey you still love me right?!"
Neil Patrick Harris
True love needs #nofilter. We'll take any excuse to look at Harris and husband David Burtka's adorable 8-year-old twins, but the August 2014 Instagram posted by the How I Met Your Mother alum came with a firm message: "I couldn't be more in love with my family," he wrote, sharing a photo of Burtka holding Harper and Gideon. "Any reports to the contrary are woefully mistaken."
Back in 2015, the Aladdin star and wife Jada Pinkett were flooded with reports of their supposed divorce — a rumor the actor took to his Facebook page to address: "Under normal circumstances, I don't usually respond to foolishness. (Because it's contagious)," he writes. But, after receiving what he calls "deepest condolences" from numerous people, he decided to set the record straight. "So, in the interest of redundant, repetitious, over & over-again-ness … Jada and I are … NOT GETTING A DIVORCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!" he stated.
The Sports Illustrated swimsuit model took on breakup rumors the only way she knows how: with a sense of humor. After the New York Post made claims that the Cravings author's husband, John Legend, was spotted kissing an unidentified woman in a N.Y.C. bathroom in 2013, the model took to Twitter, where she tweeted: "@johnlegend my tummy hurts and I think it's the chicken you made me last night are you trying to kill me so u can be with your bathroom GF?" And because the pair are #RelationshipGoals, the Grammy winner quickly responded: "my tummy kinda hurts too. It was a murder-suicide attempt."
