Once a celebrity couple gets together, the rumor mill basically has two choices: spread gossip about a breakup or spread gossip about a pregnancy. Both stories can be hurtful to a couple and, frankly, tabloids toting the same news gets old very quickly. But if you think it's tiresome to read about, imagine being in the talked-about pairing. For example, divorce rumors about Kaley Cuoco and her husband Ryan Sweeting have been cropping up practically since they walked down the aisle — and now The Big Bang Theory actress has had enough.
But, instead of firing back at gossip sites with anger, Cuoco slammed the rumors of her divorce in the best way — with an act of love. She posted several pictures of her husband on Instagram with long captions describing her love for Sweeting and how the rumors only make them stronger. "We are totally getting divorced, can't you tell!!?! 4 weeks apart and finally reunited — I missed this guy more than anything !! #rumors #notpregnant #totallymarried," she captioned one picture, showing the two of them engaging in some cute PDA a few days ago.
But then Cuoco got serious and posted another picture for Easter of her husband playing tennis. Her long caption paid tribute to the man she loves, and it's so sweet to read.
But Cuoco isn't the only celebrity who has fired back at breakup rumors by showcasing their love. Here are nine other stars who went about slamming gossip in the best way.
Neil Patrick Harris
Last August, perfect couple Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka were subjected to false reports that their marriage was rocky. Harris put the kibosh on the lame gossip when he posted this sweet photo of his happy family.
Most of summer 2014 was dedicated to trying to figure out whether Beyonce and Jay Z were breaking up. Despite all the rumors, the couple remained happily together, and Bey posted loving picture after loving picture on Instagram. "My favorite hue is Jay Z blue," she captioned this one.
In January, the rumor mill tried to say that Roberts and fiancé Evan Peters were fighting on set, but Roberts' Instagram account told a different story. "Happy Birthday to the coolest guy I know," the actress captioned this PDA pic.
