Nobody ever said relationships were easy, but it sure seems to be exceptionally difficult for celebrities to stay together. Whether it’s the pressure of the media, or the ongoing exploitation of their personal lives, there’s just something about staying in a long-term relationship that doesn’t mesh well with the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Us Magazine reveals that as the cameras follow their every move, fans seem to be viewing way more celebrity breakups than affectionate public displays of affection.
We’re just months into 2021, yet the breakup announcements are making the headlines in a fast and furious way. Will your favorite celebrity couple be able to make it through this year? Here are a handful of celebrity couples that just didn’t have what it takes to stay together…
10 Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West created a family complete with four children, but they have fallen victim to the seven-year itch. Not quite able to stay together to the eight year mark, these two clearly had a few relationship problems throughout the course of their time together, some of which have proven to be too much for them to handle as a team. People cites Kanye’s ongoing battle with bi-polar disorder as being a weight that was too heavy for Kim Kardashian to bear, leading Kim to embark onto her 3rd divorce adventure.
9 Ben Affleck & Ana De Armas
When Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas went public with their relationship, it seemed they really bonded with one another on an intimate level. They spent so much time together and appear to remain connected despite breaking up. Sources reveal that while Ben fathered three children with Jennifer Garner, Ana is interested in kids of her own, and the two are just “in different stages of life.” They may be moving in different directions now but have left on such amicable terms that fans are hopeful they will see these two together again one day.
8 Shia LaBeouf & Margaret Qualley
Fans weren’t entirely caught off guard when 2021 rolled in and Shia LaBeouf and Margaret Qualley called it quits. This budding relationship seemed to be on its way to becoming something real, but Shia’s reputation kept dragging them down. When his ex-girlfriend, FKA Twigs blew up the media with serious accusations of abuse, Shia’s past seemed to cloud his future, and his relationship with Margaret was doomed.
7 Zoe Kravitz & Karl Glusman
It was only two years ago that actor Karl Glusman married Zoe Kravitz in a beautiful wedding that unfolded at her famous father’s home. As the daughter of Lenny Kravitz, all eyes were on this beautiful bride, and it seemed as though things were going well for the newlyweds. There were no signs of trouble visible to fans, but something must have gone very wrong along the way. They pulled the plug on their two-year marriage as a kick-off to 2021.
6 Xzibit & Krista Joiner
This is a breakup that pinched the hearts of fans in a big way. Xzibit and Krista Joiner have been together since 2001, in spite of deciding not to officially tie the knot until 2014. When she filed for divorce this year, fans were blindsided.
They’ve been through so much as a couple, including having two children. One of their babies was born prematurely and sadly passed away less than two weeks after his birth. After experiencing this journey together, fans thought these two had the lasting power it took to make it to the end… they just didn’t expect the end to come so quickly.
5 Ashley Benson & G-Eazy
Things moved quickly for rapper G-Eazy and Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson. They went from casually dating to practically living together, in no time at all. Fans loved seeing these two together, but it seems that they may have jumped in to things a tad too fast.
The couple split after just nine months together, and by the looks of things, the situation may have gotten a bit snarky. Benson unfollowed G-Eazy on social media, which in 2021, is the ultimate diss.
4 Elliot Page & Emma Portner
Elliot and Emma are no longer. Just three years after their marriage things began to fall apart, and the public was shocked to see the downward developments. They officially announced their breakup two months after Page came out as being transgender.There was decisive clarity in his social media post about this topic, as he stated; “Hi friends. I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot. I feel lucky to be writing this. To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life”, he said.
Of course fans were saddened to see this relationship fall apart but there was something very refreshing about seeing the truth take form in such a positive way. The message ended with him saying “I am enough to pursue my authentic self.”
3 Rebel Wilson & Jacob Busch
Fans were rooting for Rebel and Jacob, but it seems that starting a relationship just before the pandemic may have added too much pressure on their relationship. Spending this strange quarantine and lockdown phase with one another may have proven to be too much too soon for this couple, who recently announced that they’ve decided to call it quits.
2 Luke Evans & Rafael Olarra
Beauty And The Beast star Luke Evans seems unhappy to see his one-year relationship with boyfriend Rafael Olarra come to an end. When asked about his feelings about this situation, his response was ‘it is what it is,” suggesting that re-entering the single life wasn’t necessarily his choice. Whatever it is that happened between these two, fans are rooting for them to sort it out and maybe end up back together again soon.
1 Clare Crawley & Dale Moss
Everything about the relationship between Clare Crawley and Dale Moss seemed to move very, very quickly. Given the whirlwind romance they were caught up in, fans weren’t surprised to see the couple continue down the path of speedy progress by getting engaged quickly. Sadly, The Bachelorette stars were only engaged for five months before calling it quits. It looks like things ended just as quickly as they began.
