It's been a long year...and it's only May. So, it's safe to say 2020 hasn't been the nicest, especially for those battling a breakup. Relationships in the public-eye leave little to the imagination and sadly, these aren't the first high profile splits Hollywood has witnessed (and they surely won't be the last). Between the short-lived, and long-lived, romance and rivalry, we thought it was only necessary to round-up the celebrity breakups that hurt the most.
Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson
The couple started dating in 2018 and as their nearly two year long relationship has seen its ups and downs, sources confirmed the duo have decided to go their separate ways. Setting an example for exes everywhere, they seem to remain amicable. Delevingne released a statement on her Instagram defending Benson against harsh comments after being seen with rapper G-Eazy, "To everyone hating on @ashleybenson please stop." Cara demanded privacy as she went on to state, “You don’t know the truth, only her and I do and that's exactly how it should be.”
Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy
Divorces are messy, but a divorce during a global pandemic is all the more agonizing. Co-founder of The Row and Olsen twin, Mary-Kate, has split from Olivier Sarkozy, French banker and half-brother to former French president. The 33-year-old fashion royal has filed for divorce for reasons that are still unknown. However, due to New York courts closing because of the recent coronavirus outbreak, the couple's breakup has been halted. Olsen reportedly petitioned for an emergency separation, but after being denied she has been obligated to stay in the couple’s Hamptons home for the duration of quarantine.
Noah Centineo and Alexis Ren
The socially indulgent duo announced their celebrity breakup the normal way... by deleting all photos of one another on their Instagram profiles. After months of publicizing their relationship, they have polished off their romance with an undisguised ‘unfollow’. The actor and his model ex confirmed their relationship in November of 2019, but have decided to call it quits as of April 2020.
Timothèe Chalamet and Lily Rose Depp
Will we live to see another couple as good looking as Chalamet and Depp? That’s highly debatable. After more than a year of dating, it seems to be the end of the road for the two actors. Although neither of the French-American fashion enthusiasts have declared why they split, this celebrity breakup seems to have ended cordially.
Rihanna and Hassan Jameel
Badgalriri is officially back on the market. The two dated for nearly three years, however Rihanna and Hassan Jameel have now decided to go their separate ways. The Saudi billionaire and fashion mogul have succeeded in keeping their relationship private, their breakup however, not so much. As fans speculate the reasoning behind the separation, rumors surface that the couple had differing aspirations for the future.
Cara Santana and Jesse Metcalfe
It’s been over a decade since Santana and Metcalfe went public with their relationship in 2009, and after nearly thirteen years of dating and a marriage proposal, the couple is calling it quits. The twosome endured a lengthy engagement as Metcalfe, 41, proposed to the fashion blogger, 35, in 2016. The John Tucker Must Die star seems to be moving on quickly, following the recent breakup he’s since been spotted with multiple women.
Lana Del Rey and Sean Larkin
Only six months after the start of their relationship, Lana Del Rey and Sean Larkin are officially over. The Oklahoma-based policeman, and reality star of Live PD, confirmed they had broken up in a recent interview. A source says that Lana needed some time for herself to focus on music, is this breakup indicative of a future album, Lana? We hope so.
Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters
Pamela Anderson married Jon Peters earlier this year, and just 12 days later got divorced. The Baywatch star hosted the secret ceremony in Malibu to celebrate the rekindling of her romance with the movie mogul. The couple dated in the late 80’s and revisited their romance by tying the knot in January. Although the ceremony was held, the legal paperwork for the two’s marriage license was not yet filed. However, despite the short-lived marriage, it seems the couple is already tied up in long-term separation disputes.
