Selena Gomez and The Weeknd

The duo split after almost a year of dating in October. According to sources, their busy schedules made it hard for them to stay together. Selena has since rekindled her romance with Justin Bieber and The Weeknd has been making the most out of his newly single status.

Chris Pratt and Anna Faris

In August, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced their plans to separate after six years of marriage, saying, “We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed,” adding, “We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.” They have one child together, son Jack.

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen

Rachel and Hayden reportedly called it quits after nine years together in September. It’s still unclear why they broke up, but according to Us Weekly, the two have “been on the outs for a couple of months” and Rachel is “full-time back in LA,” while Hayden is in Toronto. Rachel and Hayden are parents to a daughter named Briar Rose, who they welcomed in November 2014.

Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs

In October, news broke that Rob and Twigs reportedly ended their engagement. According to a source, “They broke up several months ago.” The couple has yet to confirm their split, but breakup rumors first began circulating in July, when Rob told Howard Stern he and Twigs were “kind of” engaged. The singer later added to the reports when she was spotted getting cozy with a male model in Spain a month later.

Jennifer Hudson and David Otunga

Jennifer and David ended their ten-year relationship in November. “They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months,” Jennifer’s rep told People. The couple, who first got engaged in September 2008, share an 8-year-old son named David Daniel Otunga Jr and Jennifer has also “requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé” in “the best interest of their son.”

Tyra Banks and Erik Asla

The couple of five years broke up in September. Though it’s not clear what led to their split, a source tells Us Weekly it was “drama-free” and they are still friends. The two are parents to a son, whom they welcomed via surrogate in January 2016.

Jesse Williams and Aryn Drake

The Grey’s Anatomy actor split from his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, after nearly five years of marriage in April. TMZ reported the breakup is “amicable,” though it wasn’t clear which of them initiated the process. The two first began dating in 2008, and the couple married in September 2012. They share two children, son Maceo and daughter Sadie, and Aryn is also a cofounder of Jesse’s Ebroji app.

Mariah Carey and Bryan Tanaka

Mariah split from her backup dancer in April after five months of dating. Though after a few PDA-filled date nights, the two have restarted their relationship.

Adriana Lima and Julian Edelman

After privately dating since last Summer, the supermodel and New England Patriot broke up shortly before the Oscars in February due to conflicting schedules.

Amber Heard and Elon Musk

The couple, who were first linked last July, have called it quits. “The timing wasn’t good for them,” a source tells Us Weekly. “He’s super busy and works all the time. Amber is filming [Aquaman] in Australia until October. She’s in no position to settle with him. She feels her career is just starting.”

Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill

In January, Nicki confirmed her split from the rapper, telling fans via Twitter, “To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year.” The couple dated for nearly a year.

Chris Evans and Jenny Slate

The Gifted costars broke up in February after almost one year of dating, but in November People confirmed the couple was back together. Jenny also spent the holidays with Chris’s family, silencing any doubts that the two were still broken up.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom

At the end of February, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom called it quits. Their reps released a statement, saying, “Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.” Katy and Orlando began dating in January 2016 and were last spotted together at Vanity Fair‘s Oscars afterparty, just a few days before their breakup.


Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac

Scarlett and her French journalist husband announced their split in January, but had reportedly been broken up since the Summer. The couple began dating in 2012 and tied the knot in September 2014, just a month after their daughter Rose was born.
