Bexes? These Stars Managed to Stay Best Friends With Their Exes

Staying friends is the new never speaking again.

By Marianne Garvey

Not every breakup has to be The War of The Roses. In fact, remaining best friends with your ex, at least in public, is the thing to do. 

1. Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez

What started with Bruce Willis and Demi Moore has set an example for Selena Gomez, who was spotted Wednesday night at her ex Justin Bieber’s Purpose Tour concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. No bad feelings between these two, with Bieber recently posting a throwback Instagram snap of the two kissing in 2011, when they were a couple. 

2. Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin finalized their divorce Thursday, and have managed to remain friendly in the two years since they separated. Even though they’re both dating other people, the two have been spotted at their kids school plays together and have been snapped enjoying a family vacation in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. They even live next door to each other in L.A. and Chris rents a house near Gwyneth in New York’s Hamptons for the summer. Gwyneth has played nice, saying publicly they will “always be family.”

3. Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner made it through a brutal split, with Ben living in the pool house on the couple’s L.A. property, in order to remain with their three kids. They’re often spotted out and about together running errands, they’ve vacationed in Montana post-divorce and have both spoken about each other without bashing one another. 

"Jen is a superhero mom," Ben told E! News at the premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in New York City. "She is an amazing mother and I'm really lucky to have her as a partner to co-parent these kids with. We try our best, we put them first and that's what we do."

Jen called Ben the “love of her life” in a recent Vanity Fair interview.

4. Will Smith & Sheree Fletcher

Will Smith’s ex wife, Sheree Fletcher, came to the actor’s defense earlier this year after Alexis Arquette claimed their marriage broke up over Will’s cheating with a man. Sheree said publicly it never happened, and the duo continue to be friends and coparent their son, Trey. Jada Pinkett Smith is so close to Trey she calls him her “bonus son.”

5. Kris Jenner & Caitlyn Jenner

 And while we may never know if it’s for the cameras or not, it appears Kris Jenner and her ex, Caitlyn, are on good terms. The two, who were estranged for a while as Bruce Jenner transitioned, are now able to laugh over a glass of wine on a girls night out, as seen on I Am Cait.
