Top 5 Celeb Breakups That Rocked The World & Our Belief In Love

We're still not over these celebrity breakups.
24 July 2023

Hands up if you have a fave celebrity couple. We fervently root for their relationship, stalk them on the Internet, and gush about their seemingly perfect romance. But most good things must come to an end, and these relationships aren’t an exception. 

We’ve rounded up 5 celebrity breakups that we’re sadly still not over. Be sure to grab a tissue or two before scrolling down. 

1. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

It’s no surprise that we’re starting the list off with Brangelina. The pair were quite literally Hollywood’s “It” couple, even having wax statues made together at the Madame Tussauds in London. But alas, they called it quits after 12 years and are currently amidst a fierce legal battle. Yikes. 

2. Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki

Viewers of the hit Korean drama Descendants of the Sun were ecstatic when male and female leads Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo announced that they were in love IRL. The couple got hitched in October 2017, but sadly divorced less than 2 years later in June 2019. And while neither party has shared the reason behind their separation, heartbroken fans can rewatch the show and pretend that their break-up never happened. #delulu

3. Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron

If you grew up during the days of High School Musical, you would’ve probably kept up with these Disney stars and their 4-year stint. While both Vanessa and Zac kept their relationship relatively private, we’d get the occasional gushing from Vanessa sharing that Zac’s “an amazing guy” and Zac calling her a “very sexy woman”. 

Sadly, 2010 was the year their relationship ended. I guess Troy and Gabriella had to go their own way. 

4. Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello

This one’s still a lil’ fresh. After months of rumours, the bombshell couple finally announced in July 2023 that they had split after 7 years of marriage. Well, at least we can look back on their opulent wedding back in 2015 where Sofia’s Modern Family co-stars and Joe’s True Blood castmates came together for the happy occasion. 

5. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck

Before 2021, the chances of Bennifer happening again were close to never. The duo first met in 2002, dated for 4 months before getting engaged, and separated in 2004 - shattering the hearts of fans. 

But after a million years, they’ve rekindled their love and tied the knot in August 2022. So for all the sceptics out there, there is a second chance when it comes to love.
