While it’s true the foundation of relationships in Hollywood has always been rather flimsy, 2023 was shocking as we saw couples quitting on one another who seemed so solid. Check out the ones that completely shattered us as well!
Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello
The pair released a statement: “We have made the difficult decision to divorce. As two people who love and care for one another very much, we politely ask for respect of our privacy at this time as we navigate this new phase of our lives.”
Elle Fanning and Max Minghella
The private duo kept their love life secretive, making just a few public appearances together over the years. It’s unclear when exactly their relationship came to an end.
Britney Spears & Sam Asghari
The nineties pop star and her beau for a long time went their separate ways after 14 months of marriage and Asghari had filed for divorce from the singer.
Meryl Streep and Don Gummer
It came as quite a shock when news emerged that Meryl Streep and Don Gummer quietly separated over six years ago. The former couple married in 1978, six months after meeting each other, and have since shared children: Henry Wolfe, 43, Mamie Gummer, 40, Grace Gummer, 37, and Louisa Jacobson, 30.
Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner
Probably the ugliest of breakups to have taken place this year, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s split began circulating on September 1, when Jonas filed for divorce. In his filing, Jonas stated that the marriage was “irretrievably broken.” By September 6, the pair released a joint statement that said they “mutually decided to amicably end [their] marriage,” but as more and more information came out, that statement might not have been entirely true.
Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford
In another musical relationship, Billie Eilish and Jesse Rutherford broke up after less than a year of dating in May. Their relationship became big news because of the 10-year age gap as well as their matching public appearances.
Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Jackman
Having been referred to as being solid as a rock, after 27 years together, Hugh and Deborra-lee Jackman got a divorce. They put out a joint statement, “We have been blessed to share almost 3 decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage. Our journey now is shifting and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth.”
