Perezmas 2019: 12 Brutal Celebrity Breakups
On the 12th day of Perezmas, pop culture gave to us…
12 BRUTAL celebrity breakups!
Love is patient, love is kind… until it’s impatient and nasty. As we know, many Hollywood relationships end in dissatisfaction and heartbreak — and this year proved to be quite a wrecking ball for many beloved celeb couples!
We’ve said goodbye to OTPs that have been together for nearly a decade, and couples that have been hooking up for mere months.
No matter the span of time, however, the death of any celeb romance is tragic; so let us mourn the losses of these once loving relationships…
Liam Hemsworth & Miley Cyrus
The on-again-off-again romance between the Wrecking Ball singer and Last Song actor swung back to “off” mode on August 11, when news broke that the longtime couple had split less than a year after finally tying the knot.
Sources told E! News the couple “were drifting apart” and had been “trying to make it work for months.” But, alas, they just had to keep on movin’ their separate ways. A rep for Miley quickly confirmed news of the split, telling fans in a statement:
“Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers. They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.”
Miley’s “process” involved climbing onto formerly platonic lady friend Kaitlynn Carter, who the songbird was spotted making out with in Lake Como in Italy just a day after the news of her breakup with Liam broke.
The Disney darling and Brody Jenner‘s ex didn’t last longer than a #HotGirlSummer, though, and Miley quickly moved on to fellow singer Cody Simpson.
With Miley going back to the city lights, Liam, per her instructions , slid away to the shores of Australia, where he spent months hanging out with his family, surfing, and eventually finding a new love interest in actress Maddison Brown.
According to reports, Liam and his new girlfriend have been laughing at Miley and Cody’s over-the-top Instagram PDA, suggesting he and Miles won’t be getting back together, as they’ve done in the past. Sadz!
Brody Jenner & Kaitlynn Carter
Weeks before Kaitlynn was spotted locking lips with Miley, news broke that she and her “husband” had ended their five year relationship — which was easy to do, seeing as they weren’t technically married in the first place. While The Hills: New Beginnings stars pulled out all the stops for a wedding in Bali last year, they never actually finished getting their marriage legalized in America.
It’s not totally clear what caused their relationship to go sour. A source claimed Kait wanted to make their union official and wanted a baby, but Brody did not, while a separate source noted:
“The show didn’t help.”
Insiders also said the couple split up a while before the news broke — which makes sense, as they both quickly moved on to other love interests.
Kait, like we said, was quickly seen on Miley’s arm, while Brody began dating 22-year-old model Josie Canesco. (Neither rebound relationship lasted long.)
Unlike many exes, however, it appears the two are still on good terms. When Kaitlynn and Miley were still together, they sent Brody a joint present for his birthday: a gift box from marijuana dispensary Lowell Farms, complete with a weed bouquet.
Adele & Simon Konecki
On April 19, Adele‘s representatives Benny Tarantini and Carl Fysh said in a statement to the Associated Press that she and Simon Konecki were breaking up after more than seven years together.
The 30-year-old Grammy winner and 44-year-old entrepreneur-philanthropist met in 2011, and she first addressed their relationship in a since-deleted post on her blog around January 2012. Five months later, she announced they were expecting a child together — and went on to give birth to son Angelo on October 19, 2012.
The couple have since lived a quiet life in her native London and Beverly Hills, where they bought a home together in 2016. Despite their private relationship, however, there were a few signs the pair were headed for splitzville over the past year.
Since last June, the songstress has been seen out on the town without her husband, attending concerts and events with her famous pals instead. In 2018, she joined Taylor Swift backstage during her Reputation stadium tour, and surprised Drake several months later by giving one of his concerts a rave review.
Earlier this year, Adele attended one of Robyn’s concerts in El Lay and posted a video of herself singing along to the star’s 2010 hit Dancing On My Own.
