Another year gone by, another year filled with break ups that sometimes hit us harder than our own.
While 2017 was filled with plenty of great moments, we also saw the demise of celebrity pairings that we were (mostly) rooting for. And although the lives of the rich and famous are presented to us through a glossy screen and even glossier filters, we still feel a pang of heartbreak when we see them go through heartbreak. As it turns out, they’re just like us – except they have the world watching them and also millions of dollars.
So take a walk through heartbreak with us. We promise it’s the last you’ll see for this year.
Selena Gomez & The Weeknd
The two crooners hooked up not long after The Weeknd and Bella Hadid called it quits towards the end of 2016. After ten months together, Selena and Abel (his real name) broke up, citing conflicting schedules. It’s also interesting that it occurred around the same time that Selena was getting friendly with ex/possible soulmate Justin Bieber and now the two have been spotted getting close at hockey games and church masses.
We’re secretly hoping this means Bella and The Weeknd may rekindle something.
Jennifer Lawrence & Darren Aronofsky
Working together on mother! brought Jennifer and Darren together last September, despite their 22-year age difference. It seemed as though they were another couple proving that age is just a number, although they kept their relationship as private as possible, until their split just before Thanksgiving.
Our hearts broke a little when we heard that Fergie and Josh were ending their marriage after 8 years together. Following the announcement, they released a joint statement saying, “we are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family,” and settling on joint custody of their-year-old son, Axl.
After a tumultuous relationship together, filled with enough break ups and reconciliations to fuel seasons worth of KUWTK, Kylie and Tyga finally called it quits (for real this time). Kylie Jenner has since gotten with Travis Scott and has been fueling pregnancy rumours for the last few months, leaving Kardashian/Jenner fans on the edge of their seats.
