2015, the year that love died.
Yep, it seems that the past twelve months have been the ultimate worst when it comes to romances with cruel cheating allegations, broken relationships and shattered marriages permeating the headlines from every corner of the globe. And it seems that Hollywood hasn't escaped the onslaught of heartbreak either.
In no particular order, here are ten couples that bit the dust in 2015:
1. Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick
We have observed Kourtney and Scott's relationship for years on Keeping Up with the Kardashians so were devastated to see them call it quits over last year's Fourth of July holiday weekend.
2. Megan Fox & Brian Austin Green
After eleven years together and two adorable children, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green came to the hard decision that married life was simply not working for them. Apparently, their work commitments got in the way of their relationship, with Megan notably spending a lot of time away from home working on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2:
Thankfully, since going their separate ways, they have remained on friendly terms for the sake of the kids.
3. Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner
For years, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner were the ultimate Hollywood power couple, after falling in love on the set of Daredevil back in 2002. Here they are in the movie's trailer:
Many years down the line however, the couple sadly split amid heartbreaking rumors that he was cheating with the nanny about six months ago. In June, they issued the following joint statement:
"We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time."
Although they are still broken up, recently reports have claimed that they are trying to work it out -- fingers crossed!
4. Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale
Yep, another nanny cheating scandal ended the thirteen year marriage between Gwen and Gavin, with both parties allegedly seeking joint custody of their three sons.
5. Gigi Hadid & Joe Jonas
They seemed like the ultimate power couple of the summer, but it was not meant to last. Distance took its toll as Gigi focused on her modeling career, and Joe continued to work on his music.
She's now swiftly moved on to ex-One Direction member Zayn Malik, it seems.
6. Kaley Cuoco & Ryan Sweeting
Citing irreconcilable difference, these two ended their short marriage after a lavish wedding in December 2013. Luckily they had a pre-nup.
7. Amanda Seyfried & Justin Long
After two years, Amanda Seyfried and Justin Long waved love goodbye after bonding over Instagram way back in the summer of 2013. Back then, Amanda spoke of the chance encounter that blossomed into romance:
"It was a beautiful picture of a snail, and the caption said, "F**king MOOOOOOOOVE." It made me laugh out loud, so I texted him."
8. Charlize Theron & Sean Penn
Much to our shock, Charlize Theron and Sean Penn abruptly ended their engagement after a year and a half of being together. Apparently, their once sizzling romance just fizzled out over time.
9. Glenn Close & David Shaw
It looks like it wasn't third time lucky for Glenn Close at all, after she divorced her husband of nine years this year. According to sources:
"They've been separated for some time, and things are amicable between them."
10. Elizabeth Olsen & Boyd Holbrook
It recently came out that Elisabeth Olsen shockingly dumped her fiancee, Narcos star Boyd Holbrook, on the same day that his best friend died. Recently speaking to GQ magazine, the actor revealed:
“On the same day that my best friend died, I got a call from my girl to tell me it was over."
Let's just hope for a better 2016, shall we?
