If you were a celebrity in 2015 who was married or involved in a serious relationship, the stars seemed to be against you. From Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert to Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale to Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, celebrity splits appeared more frequently in the news than Justin Bieber’s romances. Ready to wind back the clock and see who ranks on the top 10 list?
Celebrity Split #1
Yolanda Foster and David Foster shocked many fans of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills when they announced plans to divorce, pointed out ET.
The reality TV celebrity revealed her plans to split with David on December 1.
“Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways,” said the Fosters. “We’ve shared nine beautiful and joyous years together. During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues.”
Celebrity Split #2
Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting apparently no longer got a big bang out of each other. The tennis player and the Big Bang Theory actress were married for only 21 months before they called it quits. And as a hint that knowing each other before marriage might help, Kaley and Ryan had been dating for only three months prior to their December 2013 wedding.
Soon after the split, Cuoco was rumored to be renewing her romance with her Big Bang Theory co-star Johnny Galecki, as the Inquisitr noted. Some reports even indicated that the reason from her split with Ryan had to do with her hot hook-up with Johnny.
Celebrity Split #3
As sweetly as the Sound of Music crew singing goodbye, farewell, Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas broke up. No drama and no hostility, a source told ET.
“Before they dated, they were already good friends and they will definitely stay friendly. No bad blood there. It was amicable.”
Celebrity Split #4
But it’s not always roses and gentle adieus to a celebrity affair when it comes to splitting, pointed out Gossip Cop.
No confirmations of cheating leaked, but when Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert revealed their divorce, it was known that accusations of infidelity existed. Even their official statement showed the emotional pain that both felt.
“This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately,” stated the no-longer-together country couple.
Celebrity Split #5
Gwen Stefani never saw it coming. She and Gavin Rossdale announced their divorce following a 13-year marriage. With three sons, Gwen suffered when she learned Gavin had been cheating on her, although they sought to work out an amicable custody arrangement.
And the title of her hit song, “Used To Love You,” says it all. But helping Gwen heal is Blake Shelton, who turned their platonic friendships as coaches on The Voice into passion, as the Inquisitr reported.
Celebrity Split #6
Problems arose when Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez decided to divorce. He wanted to determine spousal support, whereas she wanted the joint custody arrangement for the couple’s 2-year-old boy Maceo to include a requirement that Martinez get a formal okay before he took him beyond California state limits.
And just as with Blake and Miranda, their statement showed their sadness.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” they announced.
Celebrity Split #7
Viewers of Keeping Up with the Kardashians saw this one coming. Scott Disick finally got shown the door by Kourtney Kardashian when Scott went on a party binge, with pictures of the playboy canoodling with Chloe Bartoli going viral.
Frustrated by once again being left alone to single-parent the trio of kids they shared, Kourtney made it clear that she’d finally had enough. And just to make it extra-evident that she’s done with Disick, as the Inquisitr reported, Kardashian has been enjoying a hot hook-up with Justin Bieber.
Celebrity Split #8
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green enjoyed five years of wedded bliss along with parenting two little boys before they decided to join the split train. No prenuptial agreement existed. Consequently, because Megan’s success tops Brian’s, she probably will be shelling out spousal support.
Celebrity Split #9
Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards seemed to be doing just dandy — until they weren’t. Malik reportedly was the one who did the dumping but refuted allegations that he texted her to notify he was calling it quits.
“I have more respect for Perrie than to end anything over text message,” defended Zayn. “I love her a lot, and I always will, and I would never end our relationship over four years like that. She knows that, I know that, and the public should know that as well.”
Celebrity Split #10 And Beyond
Miley Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger took a never-ending hiatus. Just as with Kourtney and Scott, Patrick got in trouble for a party that involved other gals.
Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne added themselves to the split list but emphasized that they were staying friends. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner sought to maintain their own friendship for the sake of their children.
Who else split in 2015? Charlize Theron and Sean Penn, Britney Spears and Charlie Ebersol, Kate Beckinsale and Len Wiseman, Big Sean and Ariana Grande, Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods, Olivia Culpo and Nick Jonas, Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock, Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge, and Sophia Smith and Liam Payne also suffered through splits.
