This seems to be a drill for us now, but: love dies. As if all the breakups in the world is not testament to that. Here are celebrity breakups that broke our hearts. (This list will be updated whenever love dies. Which could be quite often.)
Suzy and Lee Dong Wook
Just four months after they confirmed they were dating, Suzy and Lee Dong Wook have confirmed that they have reached Splitsville. They cited their busy schedules that led them to drift apart as the main reason for their breakup.
Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne
The pair shocked the world when they announced they were dating in 2016. The second shocker came when they said they were expecting a son. Last week, they dropped another bomb: they would be going their separate ways. Liam wrote on Twitter, “Cheryl and I are sad to announce that we are going our separate ways. It’s been a tough decision for us to make. We still have so much love for each other as a family. Bear is our world and we ask that you respect his privacy as we navigate our way through this together.”
Ariana Grande and Mac Miller
About two years after going public with their relationship, Ariana and Mac have parted ways. The singer confirmed their breakup in May through an Instagram story, where she wrote, “This is one of my best friends in the whole world and favorite people on the planet. I respect and adore him endlessly and am grateful to have him in my life in any form, at all times regardless of how our relationship changes or what the universe holds for each of us!” She is now dating Pete Davidson.
Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan
What is love? Channing and Jenna were such #couplegoals, but they announced today that they have split after eight years of marriage. The couple released a joint statement via Twitter, writing, “Hey world! So… we have something we would like to share. … We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths now.” They ended it off by saying they’re still a family and will continue to be loving parents to their daughter.
Alessandra Ambrosio and Jamie Mazur
The Victoria’s Secret Angel split with her fiancé last month after being together for more than 10 years. The couple were engaged for a decade and have two kids together. They reportedly celebrated Easter together with their kids even though they have broken up. Alessandra told Cosmopolitan in an interview two years ago, “If I have been engaged to him for eight years, then it’s not my priority. I have a lot of things going on, and I haven’t got married because I’m so busy. I’ll think about that when I have time off.”
Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid
Power couple ZiGi who has even graced the cover of Vogue has gone their separate ways two years after they confirmed their relationship. They were the It couple of 2017 and were seen together everywhere. After news of their breakup broke, Zayn tweeted, “Gigi and I had an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect for Gigi as a woman and a friend. She has such an incredible soul. I’m grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time, we wish this news could have come from us first. We love you all.”
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
Are they dating or are they not? The rumours will probably continue till one of them gets married. Although Jelena rekindled their love not too long ago, they are reportedly on a “break”. According to news reports, it might be because Selena’s mum doesn’t approve of Justin.
Song Seung Hun and Liu Yi Fei
The couple, who had been dating for three years, called it quits earlier this year, citing busy schedules and long distance as their reasons for breaking up. However, their agencies maintained that the two remained good friends.
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux
The couple took everyone by surprise when they announced their split last month. However, they will reportedly see each other from time to time as they have joint custody of their four dogs. The couple were married for two years.
