The Most Heart-Breaking Celebrity Breakups of 2017


Well, 2017 has been quite a year. It wouldn’t be fair to call it a “good” year exactly, and looking back at all the true loves that turned out to be not-so-true is just one example of that.

In a year that has seen some devastating celebrity breakups, here are six of the ones that really tugged at our heartstrings.

When Chris Pratt and Anna Faris announced their split this year, it basically shattered our belief in true love. Luckily, the couple is still on good terms and happily coparenting their son, Jack. Two people this good couldn’t possibly have a bad breakup, right?


2. Selena Gomez and The Weeknd

After taking their love tour on the road all spring and summer, Selena Gomez and The Weeknd split this fall — followed by rumors and pictures suggesting Gomez had reconnected with longtime on-again, off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber. Then came the unfollows and Instagram purges and more and more heartbreak for Selena/Weeknd shippers.


3. Fergie and Josh Duhamel

This power couple shocked us when they announced their split this year after eight years of marriage. Thankfully, the split seems to be very civil.


4. Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill

Nicki Minaj confirmed her split from Meek Mill in January, and we still miss their adorable couple pics.

Kylie Jenner and Tyga have been on and off for years, but they seemed to split for good this April. Now, Kylie is rumored to be expecting a child with Travis Scott.


6. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom

We loved these two together so much — which made it a very sad moment when we heard they broke things off in February.

Ugh, heartbreak! Here’s to new loves and happy relationships in 2018.
