1. KATY PERRY
Katy Perry told Vogue that her ex-husband, British funnyman Russell Brand, relied on his thumbs to end their marriage. “He’s a very smart man, and I was in love with him when I married him,” the singer said graciously. Ready for the jab? She continued, “Let’s just say I haven’t heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011.” You stay classy, Russell Brand. Perry deserved muchbetter than a sayonara text.

Britney Spears was a “Slave 4 U” in her lyrics, so she probably used text speak and keyboard abbrevs when she dumped her husband and baby daddy K. Fed via text. The New York Post claimed that the backup dancer was totally thrown for a loop and had no idea that Brit Brit was bailing on their union, receiving a text indicating her intent to divorce while he was in the middle of taping an interview. That’s a brutal way to get kicked to the curb, even when you’re Mr. Britney Spears.

9. SIMON COWELL
According to USA Today, Cowell received a text from Terri Seymour ending their relationship, something he spoke openly about in a joint interview. There were no hard feelings despite such a crappy way of terminating the romance. He said, “Terri decided to dump me… you sent me a text.” Perhaps he got a taste of his own medicine, since he was such a meanie when shooting down wannabe dreams as an American Idol judge.
