Celebrity breakups are almost more common than celebrity marriages, engagements and babies combined, but 2013 may go down as the year of amicable, friendly splits in the entertainment industry! Well, most of them anyway!
See some of the romances which went up in flames this year, from long-time “just dating” couples to those who had officially tied the knot(sadly).
Julianna Hough & Ryan Seacrest
Before they split in March, “Safe Haven” star Julianne Hough and media mogul Ryan Seacrest would’ve been voted most likely to marry! The couple shocked fans when they confirmed their split after two years of dating.
Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder
The Vampire Diaries stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder ended their romance, crushing plenty of fans’ off-screen “Delena” fantasies. Nina got over the breakup by enjoying some girl time with newly-single BFF Julianne Hough and Ian threw himself into his “Ian Somerhalder Foundation”. Ian and Nina continue to work and support one another and rumor has it they may be reconciling in the new year!
Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth
On again off again couple Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth ended their engagement for good in September. Many speculated that the final straw for Liam was Miley’s controversial performance at the VMAs, but we may never know what really went on behind their split. The two seem to be staying on friendly terms and focusing on their work instead.
Toke Makinwa & Maje Ayida
This is one breakup that really shook the Nigerian blogosphere. It first came in as a rumor and then it was confirmed by the media personality herself Toke Makinwa during an interview. For reasons best known to the pair, they have decided to end their 11-year old relationship despite rumors that there were engaged. I hope they both find true love again.
Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner
In not so shocking news, Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner officially confirmed their separation. It wasn’t too surprising for fans of Keeping Up With the Kardashians as they watched Bruce buy his own bachelor pad “to have his own space” months ago already. The Kardashian-Jenner crew are continuing to film the show together and are staying good friends.
Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom
Khloe Kardashian officially filed for divorce from Lamar Odom in December, but they’ve been living separate lives for the most part since mid-summer. There were rumors of drug use, but the only thing Lamar freely admits to is cheating on his famous wife (in a poorly executed rap video).
