It’s a rough world out there no matter what gender you are. Male, female and all points in between, we’re all trying to find a decent way to make a bit of money, and at the end of the day we all just want a large bucket of money to pay for food, shelter and toys. Love, companionship, whatever you want to call “shacking up with feelings” is another one of those more intangible things that everybody (most people) seeks, and while it technically costs nothing, it can be the most difficult to find and keep.

With the ongoing trend of athletes and celebrities hooking up, dating and building relationships, there is an ever-growing list of gorgeous women who have been snubbed by their athlete lovers. When you think about it though, a female celebrity and male athlete are essentially the perfect couple. Dudes who go into athletic careers stay fit, make very solid money and have egos metaphorically oozing out their ears. The vast majority of women in show business have the exact same three traits on their resumes.

Despite the similarities, however, these relationships often explode in the pair’s faces. Sometimes they grow apart, other times someone cheats (imagine that), and other times one just does something stupid and the relationship ends as quickly and unceremoniously as it started. No matter what the cause, there is always a small (sometimes huge) media frenzy whenever an athlete-hot woman couple goes to splitsville. Here are our twenty five hottest women ever to be tossed aside by an athlete. With some of these, it’s somewhat “iffy” who broke up with who, so when in doubt, just enjoy the hot women and save the questions.

A wise man once said, “for every beautiful woman in the world, there is at least one man out there who is fed up with pretending to listen.” Here are twenty-five such women and the men who got fed up with them.

25. Khloe Kardashian

Regardless of the situation with Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom (who dumped who, who the hell knows, more importantly, who cares?) she started seeing Houston Rockets guard James Harden a few months after her split from Odom. While there has been some speculation that their relationship is still going, sources have said he left her back in November or December, essentially indicating that her family and lifestyle caused him more headaches than she is worth. This is what most of North America thinks of those people feel towards her, we feel you, big fella.

As of right now, the two may be together but some sources have indicated that Harden has cheated with legions of women, so who knows where this is going.

24. Sarah Ayton

Sarah Ayton is a retired sailor who competed for Great Britain back in 2004 and 2008, winning two golds. She left the team prior to 2012 so that her husband, Nick Dempsey (also a sailor for Great Britain) could focus on competing, while she raised their two kids. Dempsey took home silver in 2012, and divorced her shortly thereafter. He went on to date Hannah Mills, a young lady who replaced Ayton on the team.

23. Halle Berry

She’ll be fifty later this year, but that number means next to nothing for Halle Berry. She’s still gorgeous. In the 90s however, she was something else altogether. In 1993, she married Atlanta Braves right fielder David Justice. They divorced four years later and there was significant controversy due to some rumors that he was abusive around the end of the relationship. Berry said shortly after her divorce that she was completely miserable when Justice left her. Unfortunately for her, she has a reputation as one of the most beautiful celebrity women who keep getting dumped.

22. Elin Nordegren

Now before any of you start shouting “well, wait a second, Chris, you miserable git, she left him!!” Let me point out that Tiger Woods slept with over a dozen women (a couple of whom actually made this list later on) while he was with now ex-wife Elin Nordegren. While she was most definitely the one who filed the proper paperwork for the divorce first, Tiger was the one who did the dumping; like I said in an earlier sentence, over twelve women worth of dumping. Prior to their relationship, Nordegren was of course a model and the nanny of Swedish golfer Jesper Parnevik.

21. Lubica Slovak

via twitter.com

Born Lubica Kucerova, she is a Slovakian-Canadian clothing designer who dated sprinter Usain Bolt a few years ago after she set up her fashion company in Jamaica. She’s a gorgeous entrepreneur but that didn’t mean much to the world’s fastest man. Back in 2012, he apparently broke up with her a few months before the Olympics because, according to sources, he didn’t want any distractions leading up to the competition. He repeated his 2008 performance in that year with three more gold medals.

20. Natasha Giggs

Ah, we come to Natasha Giggs, one of the most notorious names in English football. Ryan Giggs, who has now moved on to the managerial and ownership side of football, is a legend for Manchester United fans, having played more than two decades for the club. However, he had a lengthy affair with the wife of his brother Rhodri, Natasha. She allegedly bedded several other footballers during her marriage which ended after the brotherly affair came to light. In short, she bedded quite a few footballers, ended up with none of them, but is still insanely hot, and really, that’s all that matters.

19. Kristina Macmillan

Kristina Macmillan earned her fame working as a dancer working for Simon Cowell’s show The X Factor. She’s about as attractive and fit as anyone would imagine such a person would be, and met English footballer Alan Smith back in 2007. They started dating a couple of years later and finally got married in June 2015. A couple of months after their wedding, Macmillan put a tracking device in Smith’s car and discovered that he was having an affair. The two divorced shortly thereafter. It has been suggested that she initiated the divorce proceedings and filled out the paperwork, but in a situation like this…we all know who dumped who. Smith was allegedly fooling around with a hot blonde used car saleswoman he met at a gym.

18. Minka Kelly

If you don’t recognize this name, we feel bad for you, but are here to educate and entertain. Minka Kelly is the hot girl who gets terrorized by the equally hot Leighton Meester in the 2011 horror movie The Roommate. It sucked, but at the same time, was kind of a twisted form of sexy. Anyway, she was also Lyla in the show Friday Night Lights. She dated now retired New York Yankees shortstop (and possibly the best of all time) Derek Jeter for a couple of years, but they had an on-off relationship between 2008 and 2012. Some have speculated that their relationship took a turn for the worse when Jeter got fed up with the attention she was getting for becoming more successful and well known on TV and in film.

17. Torrie Wilson

Remember Torrie Wilson? Around 1999 she started working with WWE and remains one of the most memorable Divas of her time, mainly due to posing twice for Playboy. The sexy blonde married Billy Kidman back in 2003 but they divorced a few years after. From 2011 to 2015 she dated Alex Rodriguez, but he left her early in 2015. A-Rod has been through a great group of celebrity women and this is only the first of a couple of mentions he will get here.  

16. Nicole Scherzinger

While most members of The Pussycat Dolls completely fell off the face of the Earth, Nicole Scherzinger actually achieved some success of her own, but probably the most impressive thing she ever accomplished was dating now three-time F1 Champ Lewis Hamilton. The two dated on and off for about five years and finally broke up back in early 2015. She has more recently been dating Bulgarian tennis player Grigor Dimitrov.

15. Vanessa Perroncel

French model Vanessa Perroncel had a lengthy relationship with now retired English left back Wayne Bridge between 2005 and 2009. They broke up around late 2009 and what followed were rumors that Perroncel had started shacking up with Bridge’s teammate and English star/Chelsea legend John Terry. The story goes that while Perroncel and Bridge were not on the same page for the last year of the relationship, she was devastated when it ended, and ended up receiving a shoulder (and possibly a few other things) to cry on, from Terry.

14. Trina

One of the most famous and respected rappers of all time, with almost 20 years in the business, Trina has worked with tons of huge stars and achieved a name for herself through her own solo work. Outside of her music career she had a lengthy relationship with Denver Nuggets (now retired) forward Kenyon Martin. Most sources consider it pretty much a fact that she was dumped and that she also tried to keep things quiet with regard to the relationship ending to save her reputation, which was already suffering after the end of her time with Lil’ wayne.

13. Kate Hudson

Now in her mid 30s, Kate Hudson has the body, face and overall look of a far younger woman. Credit is due in part to good genetics and of course the fact that she is a fitness-minded person and takes care of herself. She’s dated two of the biggest athletes in the world; Alex Rodriguez (there he is again) and Lance Armstrong. Not a lot is known about her split from A-Rod but sources have argued that it was mutual. Her relationship with the former cycling God, however, was ended by Armstrong. Yeah she’s hot, but chances are she’s crazy too. She famously bad-talked both her athlete exes for their performance enhancing drug controversies, showing off a case of what psychological professionals call “sour grapes.”

12. Thandi Mbombo

Looking to the world of African soccer and reality television, Nigerian midfielder Onyekachi Okonkwo and supermodel Thandi Mbombo had a relationship until early in April 2015. Mbombo was selected to appear in South Africa’s version of Big Brother, but Okonkwo apparently ended their relationship because he was fine with her modelling but thought the show would feature her fooling around with other guys and showering on camera.

11. Paulina Gretzky

For those of you asking, “who the hell cares about Paulina Gretzky?” Horny dudes on Instagram. Next question please. But with that out of the way, yes, the offspring of the greatest hockey player in history makes our list for her brief “relationship” with Jarrett Stoll. A few months after Stoll and Gretzky were spotted together, he started dating smoking hot sportscaster Erin Andrews. While this isn’t necessarily a step up, she’s about equally hot, so he must be doing something right.

10. Raychel Coudriet

Earlier we mentioned the ex-wife of Tiger Woods, but we need to mention at least one of the two women who fell for Woods during his booty-wrangling misadventures. In a plot that is straight out of soft core p*rn, Raychel Coudriet was Tiger Woods’ neighbor’s daughter. They had known each other for years and he seduced her at age 21. In retrospect, she described their whole sexual encounter as unpleasant.

9. Pippa Middleton

"Shadow Dancer" UK Premiere - Arrivals

Pippa Middleton is, of course, the sister of an attractive brunette famous for marrying a balding dude whose family is running an ongoing scam on a country. The sister of the future Queen of England was dumped by retired cricket player Alex Loudon back in 2011. He had nothing negative to say about her as a person, but considered himself a private person, and despised the amount of press that followed them everywhere they went.

8. Bridget Moynahan

When you’re Tom Brady, you can do just about whatever you want. Feel like deflating some footballs and then trouncing the Colts? Knock yourself out. Feel like leaving your actress girlfriend for a supermodel while she’s pregnant with your kid? Have fun, champ! Get’r done!

But seriously, Bridget Moynahan spent a few years as one of the most stunning brunettes in show business and ol’ Tom Brady chucked her aside in favor of Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

7. Caroline Wozniacki

Being one of the sexiest women in tennis (a sport made barely watchable because of hot women) is not enough to keep some women in relationships. The 25 year old Danish stunner and former world number one was dumped by golf’s current best, Rory McIlroy in late 2013, only to take her back and split with her after the two got engaged in May of 2014. He said that he realized that he is not ready to live a married life but that he wishes Wozniacki the best.

If these two had bred, their offspring would have been the king/queen of boring old white people sports. This is something worth mentioning.

6. Danielle Lloyd

For any North Americans out there, I’ll give you a brief synopsis on the career of Danielle Lloyd and save you the trip to Wikipedia. She’s a former Miss England and Miss Great Britain, has posed for Playboy and is in possession of a set of sweater puppies that walk that fine line between large and perky with uncommon grace and beauty. Actually, now that I think about it, just about everything about her is great.

She dated and then married soccer player Jamie O’Hara for years and had three kids with him. His deny game was obviously not very effective because the marriage didn’t last through an alleged cheating scandal. O’Hara was apparently found out for a “night on the town” with one of his wife’s “friends.”

5. Elisha Cuthbert 

shutterstock_Elisha Cuthbert (2)

Before she was the arm-candy of Toronto Maple Leafs trophy pylon, Elisha Cuthbert was the nighttime material for a generation of Canadian boys. In between these two resume points she dated Sean Avery, one of the most notorious dirtbags the NHL has ever known (but who now seems like he might be a pretty decent and intelligent guy). It’s still unclear who dumped who when their relationship went down in flames, but Avery once said of her ““I just want to comment on how it’s become like a common thing in the NHL for guys to fall in love with my sloppy seconds. I don’t know what that’s about, but enjoy the game tonight.”

Probably the most classless thing ever said to a gaggle of reporters, but also pure gold. Avery with the win, ladies and gentlemen.

4. Eva Longoria 

shutterstock_Eva Longoria

The only actual reason any male should have ever watched that show Desperate Housewives was Latina beauty Eva Longoria. Her second marriage was to then San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker. Like quite a few other women on this list, she filed for divorce, but her reason was that she found a computer full of text messages between Parker and a wife of one of his teammates. These texts left nothing to the imagination. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, she can brag about having filled out the papers, but she was dumped for a while before anything was finalized.

3. Irina Shayk

shutterstock_Irina Shayk

Who on God’s green Earth has any idea who dumped who here? Cristiano Ronaldo is almost as good at wheeling world-class tail as he is is playing soccer (football, whatever). But he’s dealt with more models than bulimea (is that in bad taste? No bulimia is double the taste, none of the calories). Thirty year old Russian supermodel Irina Shayk is just one of his finest conquers, and at some point in early 2015, their relationship turned to garbage. There were rumors that he dumped her after she wouldn’t attend a party for his mother and others said she took a look in his phone and dumped him shortly thereafter.

2. Jamie Jungers

via bt.dk

For those of you who don’t recognize this name, Jamie Jungers was Tiger Woods’ hottest mistress during his booty-wrangling days. She was a stripper and lingerie model who, after their affair was exposed, said she still loved Tiger and unequivocally did not apologize to Elin Nordegren (class act). We don’t want to be disrespectful, but visually at least, Tiger let a real gem go here. She has been in and out of the tabloids and rehab after her “relationship” with the former golf star ended, but she still looks like someone who could get a decent contract with Vivid or Naughty America. Just saying…

1. Megan Rossee

via sportsport.ba

Megan Rossee is a model and what we like to call “a perfect ten”. She dated Michael Phelps, the greatest Olympian of all time, for a while back in 2012 and 2013. Ultimately, however, it was not meant to be, as according to Rossee’s family, the couple broke up after just under a year together. It was said at the time that Phelps didn’t see the relationship going anywhere and that they were both too young to settle down.
