Top 10 Celebrity Breakups for 2016 — From The Smoothest To The Most Scandalous!
We’re just about half way through the year, but Hollywood has already had its fair share of breakups so far. Here’s the summary of the heart-breaking splits that happened so far this year.
- Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund
The two were a match made in heaven. They were both regal and classy and they looked like this perfect porcelain couple. It was actually getting serious since the couple had been dating for about 4 years before they decided to end the relationship. Though they were looking all sweet during the recent Golden Globes, the couple had a quiet breakup. There were no reported reasons for the split, but it could have been that they were too perfect for each other.
- Steve O and Kat Von D Serious Fling Split?
Jackass star Steve O and his hot ex-girlfriend Kat Von D had also called it quits this year. This rockstar couple were supposed to be perfect for each other. They both loved animals, they were both wacky and rebellious and they had single letter last names, according to Hollywood Life. For the fans, unfortunately, there were no public mentions on the reasons of the split as well. After all, they were only dating for three months, right?
- Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix Divorced!
This was a more serious case. Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix were already known as one of the strongest couples in Hollywood after being married for 10 years. However, it appears that nothing lasts forever as the two finally decided to get a divorce this year. Though 10 years of marriage is a heavy burden, the two reportedly had an amicable separation and they remained close friends.
- Jaimie Alexander Breaks Up With Fiancé Peter Facinelli
Supergirl star Peter Facinelli and Jaimie Alexander also called it quits before they even get married. The two were actually cuddly during the Golden Globes (what’s with the Golden Globes 2016 breaking people up?), so the news also came as a surprise. However, for the two, there might be a good reason for the breakup. Reports say that the two are still good friends. It just so happened that they have very busy work schedules meaning that they couldn’t prioritize their relationship at the moment.
- Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne
Before we even knew about the Kardashians on reality TV, there were the Osbournes. This rock n’ roll family used to be front and center, and their unorthodox parenting style won the hearts of the viewers. Sharon and Ozzy were the perfect couple. Unfortunately, their 34 years of marriage hit a “tipping point.” Though rumors mentioned Ozzy’s alcohol and drug abuse as the reason for the split, Ozzy personally clarified that it was not his sobriety that caused the separation.
- Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman Divorce
This was a hard one because we’ve seen Drew Barrymore’s heart broken up a couple of times now and we just want her to meet Mr. Right. However, it was regretful news that she has just divorced Will Kopelman after 3 years of marriage. This was an extremely hard separation especially since Kopelman had stood as father to Drew Barrymore’s children. At present, Drew is just trying to move “one foot in front of the other.”
- Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris Breakup, Another Hit Song For Taylor?
Now that these two have broken up, the fans are just waiting in line for Taylor’s next hit about her breakup with music producer Calvin Harris. The two were looking fly during the past year with Harris supporting Taylor Swift on all awards shows. The two did not publicly humiliate each other when they announced the breakup, but Harris tweeted about his thoughts on the news, writing his final remarks
“The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect.”
- Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
The fashion world finally had the perfect Barbie and Ken when Gigi Hadid started dating Zayn Malik. They even made a steamy music video for Zayn’s single, “PILLOWTALK.” This breakup is a little sketchy because the two were known to fight and make up. Some say that they could just get back together “tomorrow.” This might just be another road bump in their hot celeb pair-up, but this still stirred most of their fans.
- Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama
Because this was not just some older guy dating a younger popstar. Demi and Wilmer were truly in love with each other. During the six years the couple shared together, Demi has actually lit up. She made multiple hit singles and toured the world, with Wilmer in her support system. You’d see snaps of Wilmer watching backstage and you’d see paparazzi photos of them hanging out on the beach. Even their breakup feels so “in love.” Well, good things come to an end, but most of their fans hoped this did not happen.
The last but not the least…
- Amber Heard and Johnny Depp
With more than $400 million at stake, this divorce is getting quite scandalous. Amber Heard has filed a restraining order from Johnny Depp and has claimed domestic abuse, while Depp’s family and friends revert Amber’s claims.
So far, we have yet to see who is telling the truth, but police reports are already denying Amber’s claims for assault.
