Parting ways for the better… celebrity couples who split in 2015
Relationships are sometimes like playing jenga, you never know which move could get your relationship tumbling down. Like every year, 2015 also saw its fair share of celebrity breakups. Some were bound to break and while some shocked us, some broke our hearts. Here is a list of celebrity couples who split this year, be sure to grab a box of tissues…
1 Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
This couple really did make us weep, as in really weep! We loved these two together. Garner always seemed so sensitive and supportive of her husband. But they decided to split in June and what seems to be more tragic is that they were less than a week away from celebrating their 10th anniversary. Sigh!
2 Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting
2015 didn’t see much of bang for The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco as she announced her that she was splitting-away from Ryan Sweeting, her beau and husband of 21 months in a terse press release in September. Soon after, she dropped the ‘Sweeting’. She also went ahead to clean her Instagram account of his remains. Looks like Sweeting, a Tennis pro wasn’t really a pro at marriage.
3 Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert
Bake Shelton and Miranda Lambert announced their split by saying “This is not the future we envisioned.” Looks Shelton and Lambert weren’t in tune anymore, their split shocked their fans. These two aren’t the top couple country hit makers anymore.
4 Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
Although, many people expected it, it did shock us a bit. Brilliant musicians Stefani and Rossdale ended their marriage in August. Both vouch irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split. Well, a very famous celebrity magazine reported that Stefani had begun dating her Voice co-star Blake Shelton. We have to wait and watch if Miranda Lambert pairs up with Rossdale, and then maybe the circle will be complete.
5 Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog
Hey! Come on now, the most beloved interspecies couple deserve to be on this list. They broke our hearts as much (actually more) as the other celebrity couples who split this year. Their romantic relationship of nearly four decades ended in August, probably due to the ABC’s press campaign for the pair’s new sitcom, The Muppets. They got many of us weeping with their statement, “We will continue to work on television and in all media now known or hereafter devised, in perpetuity, throughout the universe.”
6 Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger
Their marriage was pretty short lived, okay maybe not as short as Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting’s marriage but still! They ended their marriage of two years with the statement “Through not only the marriage, but the music as well, we’ve created many unforgettable moments.” Well, they are no Sony and Cher but we kind of liked them together.
7 Reba McEntire and Narvel Blackstock
This was a bomb! The country-music mega couple announced the break-up in August. These two were an inspiration to many couples due to their 26 years of companionship. Even though, the couple quietly made a sale on their Beverly Hills estate for $22.5 million, their split shocked the fans.
8 Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt
This is yet another devastating reality of amazing couples who split. Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt gave us hope for true love and companionship. Even though they never tied the knot legally, they were together for 18 years! (Talk about relationship goals) but they split in September. Westfeldt was with Hamm even before Mad Men fame and also stood by him during rehab stay. They issued a statement, “With great sadness, we have decided to separate”; it is indeed a great sadness.
9 Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams
These two didn’t make a picture perfect couple, you know, they seemed a bit off. The goody pop princess-actress and the moody singer-songwriter didn’t quite have the vibe. They did look adorable tough, but they called ‘splitsies’ a few weeks before their 6th anniversary and we heard the news in January making them one of the earliest celebrity couples who split this year.
We sure hope 2016 is a better year for couples and we don’t have to witness anymore marital drama or heart breaking splits.
