Or maybe you look at it from a monetary standpoint and decide
that Guy Ritchie and Madonna divorce was worse because
they were married so long and have children and there is a lot of money involved.

Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan had a rough battle, when the
movies related to them were released at the same time.
As a consequence it can be contended the media is directing many persons astray moving away from what should be its
aim of presenting discerning news and analytic thinking
of pressing topics for this celebrity frippery.
