Unexpected celebrity breakups have shaken the world and continue to do so. But what influence does astrology have on these relationships?
It turns out that Katy Perry and Russel Brand were the most astrologically incompatible celebrity couples by far – doomed for relationship problems from the start.
Top 5 Most ‘Astrologically’ Incompatible Celebrity Couples

1. Katy Perry and Russell Brand - Scorpio and Gemini
Katy Perry and Russel Brand’s relationship was astrological hell - a Scorpio and a Gemini are so incompatible that it requires a lot of hard work and dedication for a relationship to truly work.
Only married for 14 months, the couple blamed the demise of their relationship on clashing work schedules, but it is clear to see that their astrological incompatibility took its toll. So what does astrologer Inbaal think of their compatibility?
"Katy and Russel is the least compatible celebrity pairing by far, they shocked audiences when they got together. Gemini Russell can chat anyone up. It's a gift from Gemini's ruling planet - Mercury, the planet of communication. Sociable and outgoing, those born under the sign of the Twins love being surrounded by people, but also need to keep their freedom.
Scorpio Katy likes to keep her private life private. Think of the sign's emblem, the Scorpion, always in its shell. An oversharing partner like Russell Brand is a Scorpio's worst nightmare.
Where Scorpio wants peace, Gemini wants a party. Where Gemini wants a conversation, Scorpio prefers brooding silence. Where Scorpio demands absolute loyalty, Gemini struggles with fidelity. Their 14-month marriage ended 12 years ago, and Katy and Russell have never spoken since.”
2. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes - Cancer and Sagittarius
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were married for six years before they finally called it quits in 2012. With completely different astrological traits, their relationship ultimately failed. So what does astrology expert Inbaal have to say about their relationship?
“The lack of compatibility between Tom and Katie was apparent to all, except for the happy couple themselves. Cancer Tom is a sincere and family-minded person. He will go to the ends of the earth, to ensure that he can take care of his home, and his nearest and dearest. By nature, those born under the sign of the Crab are introverted and indoorsy, only letting their guard down in very safe spaces. They need a tight and faithful community around them, and lots of emotional support.
Sagittarius Katie, in contrast, is outdoorsy and extroverted. Those born under the sign of the Archer need no family nearby, no community and no security - all they want is a passport and some sunscreen, and they'll go where their feet take them. These two signs are so different, that it is hard to bridge the gap between them.”
3. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth - Sagittarius and Capricorn
The famed ‘Flowers’ singer has recently hit the headlines for her catchy diss track aimed at Liam Hemsworth following their divorce in 2020. Despite their tumultuous relationship lasting for over a decade, Miley and Liam were never truly compatible. Inbaal says:
“The tragic attraction between two opposite signs means that finding someone 'who completes us' equals finding someone we can never quite understand. Capricorn Liam is a focused and driven human. He will make a plan, and follow it through. Those born under the sign of the Sea-goat are all about business and will make whatever sacrifices necessary, to get their work done.
In contrast, Sagittarius Miley will only do something if it sounds like fun at that very moment. Free-spirited and generous, those born under the sign of the Archer have no taste for goals. They prefer to go with the flow and hope for the best. These two signs struggle to let the other one be. Differences can give way to resentment, control or even coercion.”
4. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West - Libra and Gemini
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were once Hollywood’s ‘it’ couple, but the astrological failures of their relationship have become evident since their recent divorce. Geminis can be very opinionated, which Libras can take personal offence to - creating rifts in the relationship. Inbaal says:
“Both Libra and Gemini belong to the air element, so they're motivated by thoughts and ideas. This is a big thing they have in common, but how they manifest those ideas is very different. Libra Kim is a people pleaser and a peacekeeper. She is true to her sign's symbol of the scales - liking to keep the balance. She likes for people to get along and will go out of her way to ensure kindness.
Gemini Kanye on the other hand will say whatever he feels like saying, whenever he feels like saying it. Those born under the sign of the Twins are born communicators and don't follow convention. Geminis are deep thinkers and tend to act on their thoughts. The Libra will feel stressed, in case the Gemini embarrasses them, and the Gemini will feel abandoned whenever the Libra won't take their side. This can only work if both people share the same ideologies in life.”
5. Jay-Z and Beyonceì - Virgo and Sagittarius
From cheating scandals to the infamous Solange Knowles elevator incident, the relationship between JayzZ and Beyonceì has been a rocky ride. Married in 2008, the couple is arguably one of the most famous in Hollywood, yet their Virgo and Sagittarius sun signs are very incompatible. Here’s what Inbaal thinks about their compatibility:
“When one sign is very conventional, and the other likes breaking convention, things can get complicated. Sagittarius Jay-Z is experimental by nature. Those born under the sign of the Archer won't believe it till they see it, so they need to try stuff out before they accept it as truth.
In contrast, Virgo Beyonceì loves to live according to standard rules and habits. She will accept her husband's free spirit, as long as he can touch base where it matters to her. Those born under the sign of the Virgin enjoy living within habits, traditions and planned practices. Despite their differences, both Virgo and Sagittarius are mutable signs, meaning they can be flexible and adapt. This is a massive strength of this potential mismatch."
