This Is Why Celebrities Are Leaving Social Media

Just like us, celebrities sometimes get sick of social media — it's then that they decide they need to take a break. Sometimes this means a short detox that gives them a much-needed breather from the internet. Other times it requires a longer hiatus that allows them to get back to the real world. You know, the one beyond the screen.

For other stars, the break is really a chance to go cold turkey. A permanent decision that will forever allow them to break the chains that bind them to all the likes and retweets.

Whatever the reason though, the decision to leave social media for however long one chooses is a personal one. These celebrities, at varying degrees, have all broken up with social media. Now, it's time to find out why.

Who knows, you may even decide to follow their leads.
