2016 may not go down in history as the year where Cupid’s arrows struck many young lovers…on the contrary, this year has seen a staggering amount of break-ups within the realm of Hollywood. Leaving behind our broken hearts, we pitied and suffered with each celebrity couple we had to bid-adieu to.

Simply put, celebrity couples that have shattered our image of ideal love have been:

  1. Kate Beckinsale and Len Wiseman officially filed for divorce.
  2. Jennifer Meyer and Tobey Maguire officially filed for divorce as well.
  3. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt – Need I say more?
  4. Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney – Needless to say, when Mother Monster and Chicago Fire beau Taylor Kinney split up, pop culture lost one of the most organic and genuine relationships we’ve seen.
  5. Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson –  Diane announced that after 8 years of relationship she won’t marry Joshua.
  6. Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris – Pop music lost a killer combo when Swift and Harris made their separate ways.

  7. Johnny Depp and Amber Heard – It was the shock of 2016, when Amber Heard filed for divorce in mid-August. Johnny Depp and the young actress seemed to have it all…guess we thought wrong.
  8. Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne – Some couples are timeless; a part of our culture; leaving behind an indelible mark. Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, through all their ups and their downs, seemed to have discovered the secret to a successful relationship. Yet, not even the countless drug battles and temporary splits could mend the couples’ deep-seeded issues.
  9. Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman – Labeled as her “biggest failure,” original Scream queen Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman called it quits after a four year engagement.
  10. Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama – After nearly 6 years of dating, no other details concerning their split have been revealed.
    To explain why we all felt so involved with each couple may seem a mystery to some. However, when iconic starlets such as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who embodied the fairy-tale romance, decided to call it quits, the generation who grew up with them couldn’t help but empathize.

A break-up is no easy task for anyone involved. As human beings, we have all been in a similar situation, and having been there, we know all the wounds we still have to mend. However, these front-page break-ups could very well trigger our past escapades, leading us to find solace in knowing that after all, we are not as alone as we thought…
