In 2015, we saw an uncharacteristically high number of break ups among celebrities. Or maybe we’re just emotional.
From decade-spanning relationships to couples who barely made it a few months, here are the biggest break ups of 2015.
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
Together since 1995, musicians Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have been plagued with infidelity rumours on Rossdale’s side throughout their two decade relationship. If we’re going by Stefani’s single Used To Love You, it sadly looks like a case of smoke leading to fire.
Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards
The two X-Factor alums managed to survive Zayn’s cheating scandal and were planning their wedding when the two decided to part ways earlier this year. If Malik’s 2015 were to have a theme, it would be ‘Breaking Up Is Easy To Do’.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
We never really ‘got’ Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner together, but when the two announced their separation following their ten year wedding anniversary, we still felt bummed for the couple and their kids.
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are two of country music’s biggest artists. Before splitting, many non-country fans knew Blake as that guy from The Voice. Since their divorce? That guy from The Voice dating Gwen Stefani. That’s an impressive title jump in only a few months.
Nick Kroll and Amy Poehler
The two comedians called it quits in September after two years of dating and like Poehler’s split from husband Will Arnett, this Facebook status change sucks. We just love Amy Poehler so much and she gives us lots of emotions (insert crying teen from Mean Girls for realz).
Gigi Hadid and Cody Simpson
As if breaking up isn’t tough enough, Simpson and Hadid were seated next to one another on their flight to LA this June following their MMVA appearances. We may have to add an award next year along the lines of ‘Most Awkward Presenter Run-In’.
Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas
We promise we had nothing to do with this one.
Nick Jonas and Olivia Culpo
If you’re going to be single after dating Miss USA for two years, it helps to have your also newly-single big bro as your wingman.
Ariana Grande and Big Sean
The two musicians got hot and heavy following Big Sean’s broken engagement with Glee’s Naya Rivera, but the good times didn’t last long. Grande’s emotional eating consisted of licking a donut, which we all know didn’t end well. And that’s why you eat the WHOLE donut.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
Spider-Man brought these two young actors together and we assume that awful beard tore them apart.
Megan Fox and Brian Austin-Green
The genetically gifted couple called it quits after 10 years together, five years of marriage, and two kids.
Kayley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting
Married after three months of dating, actress Kayley Cuoco made the talk show rounds supporting The Big Bang Theory and justifying her fast nuptials as ‘true love’. Unfortunately, this was true love that wasn’t meant to last.
Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt
After 18 years of dating, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt can still celebrate having one of Hollywood’s longest relationships. Even after their split, Hamm still thanked Westfeldt while accepting his Emmy for Mad Men this year. He’s even classier than Don Draper.
Emma Roberts and Evan Peters
The American Horror Story co-stars called off their engagement this past June, which probably wasn’t the worst idea. Their rocky relationship includes Roberts being arrested for domestic dispute, an event that left Peters with a bloody nose.
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick
Fans of the reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians have watched for years as Scott Disick struggled with substance abuse while his partner Kourtney tried to keep their family of five together. Kardashian finally had enough this year after pics of Scott with another woman surfaced, but we have a feeling the couple could reunite in the future.
Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy
Take about taking a ‘hiiiii-ya’ punch to our hearts.
