2019 has been a series of highly emotional ups and downs for many of your favorite celebrities. And no, we’re not just talking about the ones on Game of Thrones!
Many celebrity couples have called it quits in 2019. It breaks our hearts, but here is a list of the couples whose relationships died this year.
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson
Reality star Khloe Kardashian gets a lot of criticism online. One good thing about her, though? She knows how to keep things real!
When she broke up with Cavs player Tristan Thompson in February, she didn’t sugarcoat her reaction. She described the breakup as being “raw” and that it “sucks,” having been together since 2016. Complicating things is the fact that she and Thompson have a one-year-old daughter together.
Adele and Simon Konecki
Many people assumed superstar singer and Adele and her husband enterpreneur Simon Konecki would be together for life. After all, they’d been together since 2012, have a six-year-old son, and got married in 2017.
Nonetheless, the two ended up growing apart over the years, and the couple announced their split in April. They’ll still regularly see each other as they raise their kid, so it seems Adele will still be able to say “hello from the other side.”
Nicolas Cage and Erika Koike
Hollywood is a place known for its whirlwind romances. However, Nicolas Cage may hold the record for getting together and splitting in the shortest period of time!
The 55-year-old actor stayed married to 36-year-old makeup artist Erika Koike for a whopping four days before requesting an annulment. The couple had dated for a year previously, but all it took was a night of partying in Vegas for Cage and Koike to tie the knot on March 23. Four days later, Cage called it quits, claiming he was drunk when he married her.
Now, annulment request or no, Koike is hitting Cage up for spousal support!
Demi Lovato and Henry Levy
They say the couples who work together don’t always work out. Demi Lovato and Henry Levy may have proved this true in 2019!
She’s a musical sensation and he’s a fashion designer, and they combined their skills to create the clothing company Henry Alexander. They began dating shortly after Lovato checked herself into rehab in late 2018, but she decided she needed to focus on her own life and health after she went to rehab for a second time. The couple split in March.
Lady Gaga and Christian Carino
Lady Gaga took her 50-year-old fiancé Christian Carino to the Golden Globes this year, where she memorably dressed as Cinderella. Unfortunately, it looks like Carino did not turn out to be her Prince Charming.
After dating Carino since 2017, Lady Gaga broke off the engagement and the relationship in February, shortly before the Oscars. Fans wondered if she would reveal a relationship with her A Star Is Born co-star and director Bradley Cooper, after the pair exhibited insane levels of chemistry performing their hit song “Shallow” at the Oscars, but nothing has come of it.
Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus
Recently, Ben Affleck made waves by saying goodbye to “Batman” after Variety announced the role will likely be passed onto Twilight star Robert Pattinson.
However, Affleck’s biggest split of the year was with Saturday Night Live producer Lindsay Shookus. After getting together in 2017, they split in August 2018 and were seen back together earlier this year. However, the stress of keeping together a long-distance relationship (he lives in L.A., she lives in New York) may have permanently ended everything. The couple split in April.
Adriana Lima and Metin Hara
“New year, new me” is a popular saying when January rolls around. And it seems like Adriana Lima may have taken this saying seriously when it comes to love.
It was in January of 2019 that we got confirmation the Brazilian model had broken up with her self-help guru boyfriend, Metin Hara, after dating him since 2017. The irony is that his self-help wisdom may help her get over the split that much more easily!
Jeff and MacKenzie Bezos
High-profile breakups aren’t limited to the world of movie stars and musicians. For example, when Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie Bezos announced their divorce in January, it sent ripples throughout the world!
The couple spent a whopping 25 years together (they started dating in 1993 and got married that same year), before Amazon was ever founded. When the smoke cleared after the divorce was finalized in April, MacKenzie became the third richest woman in the world, retaining 25 percent of the couple’s stock in Amazon, a four percent stake in the company overall.
It’s like Ivanka Trump says in The First Wives Club: “Don’t get mad, get everything.”
Big Sean and Jhene Aiko
Sometimes, love is like a slow burn instead of a huge explosion. And falling out of love can be the same way!
For example, many fans assumed that rapper Big Sean and singer Jhene Aiko had broken up last year when they stopped posting about their relationship online. But it wasn’t until March of 2019 that Aiko confirmed that the two had officially split up, after dating since 2016.
While the breakup was amicable, Aiko wasted no time getting a new tattoo to cover up Big Sean’s face inked onto her body.
Charlie Weber and Liza Weil
There is nothing fans like to see more than their favorite onscreen characters get together in real life. And that’s exactly what happened when the stars of ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder Charlie Weber and Liza Weil began dating way back in 2016.
The two actors kept mum on the details, but confirmed that their relationship ended in February and they have gone back to being simply great friends and colleagues.
