In one way, 2020 was a year like any other: Celebrity couples uncoupled. Even as the COVID-19 pandemic brought many changes to our modern world, Hollywood remained a tough place to form lasting relationships. The marriages of Kelly Clarkson, Kacey Musgraves and Armie Hammer crumbled. Karamo Brown, Gerard Butler and Jennifer Garner all saw long-term relationships end. Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart couldn’t make their on-and-off relationship come back on one more time. And, depending on your sports-metaphor preference, Aaron Rodgers and Danica Patrick either spiked the ball, or hit the brakes on their once-promising love. Here’s a look at the more than 50 and counting celebrity couples who broke up in 2020. Read it, and literally weep.
Lindsey Vonn and P.K. Subban
After three years of dating, the Olympic gold medal skier and the Canadian hockey pro announced they were ending their engagement in separate Instagram posts shared on Dec. 29. "Over the past 3 years PK and I have had some incredible times together. He is a kind, good man, and someone I respect a great deal," Vonn wrote, alongside a snapshot of her and her former fiance. "However, after much consideration we have decided to move forward separately. We will always remain friends and love each other immensely. We ask that you please respect our privacy during this time." Subban shared a similar message, alongside an identical photo, writing in part, "Lindsey is one of the most kind and caring people I know. I will always treasure our time as a couple together and the many laughs we shared."
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis
A source confirmed to ET on Nov. 14 that the couple split and called off their engagement after nine years together.
"There was absolutely no drama or scandal, they just didn’t work as a couple anymore,” the source said. "If you’re looking for a juicy story, there just isn’t one."
“Of course their kids are their number one priority and at the forefront of any decision they make,” added the source, who explained that they are both 100% involved in their kids’ lives.
The Booksmart director and the Ted Lasso star began dating in November 2011, with Sudeikis proposing in late 2012. The actors are parents to two children; son Otis, 6, and daughter Daisy, 4.
Gleb Savchenko and Elena Samodanova
On Nov. 6, the Dancing With the Stars pro and his wife both announced that they were calling it quits after 14 years of marriage.
"It is with a heavy heart that I tell you my wife and I are parting ways after 14 years of marriage," Gleb told ET in an exclusive statement. "We still intend to co-parent our wonderful children together who we love so dearly, and we will strive to continue to be the best parents that we can to them."
Bethenny Frankel and Paul Bernon
The former reality star called it quits with Paul Bernon after two years together.
"Not everything works out and so many people have tried to define my life with our lives -- when are you getting engaged, when are you having a baby, when are you getting married? I just realized more in life with people being more open and honest with their lives and what they want that everything doesn't have to sort of end in a blue box and a bow," she said of their split while on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October. "We've had a great, great relationship and I'm really, really happy. Not everything has to end badly, some things just don't continue and it's not negative, it's just life."
Christina and Ant Anstead
The Flip or Flop star announced on Sept. 8 that she and her second husband were going their separate ways. The breakup came less than two years after the pair tied the knot and just weeks after their son, Hudson, celebrated his first birthday.
Taraji P. Henson and Kelvin Hayden
In 2018, Henson took to Instagram to proclaim, hashtag-style, that “#sheisofficiallyoffthemarket.” The Empire star had accepted the proposal of Hayden, the retired NFL cornerback who won a Super Bowl ring with the Indianapolis Colts. The couple dated for about two years prior to their engagement and Henson sounded as if she was confident she’d won a forever love. "I'm happy in my personal life. Finally it has happened to me," the actress shared on Essence's Yes, Girl podcast.
But Henson and Hayden were not to be -- and they were not to be married. In October, Henson, 50, told Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club that she and the 37-year-old Hayden had split. "I tried,” Henson said on the show. “I said, 'let's do the therapy thing,' but if you're both not on the same page with that, then you feel like you're taking it on yourself and that's not a fair position for anybody to play in a relationship."
Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich
This relationship went from zero to 60 and back to zero in virtually nothing flat. In March, Lovato and Ehrich began dating. In May, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer and the former daytime soap star (The Young and the Restless) went public with their relationship via a canoodling cameo in Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s music video for “Stuck With U.” In July, Lovato announced their engagement in an Instagram slideshow. "When I was a little girl, my birth dad always called me his 'little partner' - something that might’ve sounded strange without his southern cowboy like accent," Lovato wrote. "To me it made perfect sense. And today that word makes perfect sense again but today I’m officially going to be someone else’s partner."
About two months later, Lovato, 28, and Ehrich, 29, were history. "It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers," a source told ET on Sept. 24. "They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together."
Karamo Brown and Ian Jordan
In 2018, Brown presented Jordan with a very special surprise birthday gift: an engagement ring. "You are the funniest man I know, the kindest man, my biggest cheerleader," the Queer Eye culture guru said to his longtime beau. "You made me feel like I could do anything." Jordan, an assistant director on Disney Channel’s Raven’s Home, accepted, and the couple, who at the time had been dating for eight years, seemed to be ready to walk down the aisle.
But then the COVID-19 pandemic happened, and the couple’s planned Summer 2020 wedding was postponed. Soon, there wouldn’t be any wedding to plan at all. On the Sept. 25 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Brown, 39, revealed that he and Jordan had split. “We're still good friends," he said. "It's very nice when it's like, 'I still love you and support you.' I want him to be happy, he wants me to be happy."
"But yeah, no more wedding, so if y'all got any friends...!" Brown jokingly added. "I'm lying, I'm not ready to move on that quick, I'm not ready."
Victoria Fuller and Chris Soules
The pair made headlines with their quarantine romance earlier this year, but now that Fuller has left Soules' Iowa home, she says they've split. "I am just living my best life. We went a separate direction, but I, like, respect him so much and I think he's an amazing man," Fuller shared on Nick Viall's Viall Files podcast. "I just think that right now, I’m in a different place than he is. I’m not moving to Iowa anytime soon, so I just want to focus on me. It’s been so much about other people this year, that I just really want to hone in on what I want to accomplish. Fuller, 26, and Soules, 38, seemingly confirmed their relationship as they stepped out for a lunch date in her hometown of Virginia Beach in July, months after fans noticed via social media posts that they were quarantining together in Iowa. The Bachelor alum said on Sept. 9 that she and Soules still talk "all the time" and left the door open for a possible reconciliation in the future. In a July interview with ET, Kelley Flanagan said that Fuller and Soules were introduced by Kelsey Weier, who also appeared on Peter Weber's Bachelor season and was crowned Miss Iowa USA in 2017.
Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen
Just over two years after they got engaged on her season of The Bachelorette, Kurfin revealed on her Bachelor Happy Hour podcast that she and Yrigoyen had gone their separate ways. "I know that there has been so much speculation and curiosity out there regarding where him and I stand... No one else has the right to confirm this unless it comes directly from the source, from the horse's mouth, which is, in this moment, me," she said, in part, before getting choked up as she shared the breakup news. "I don’t think it’s going to come as a shock to anyone, but Garrett and I have decided to end our engagement. And if you have followed us on Instagram the past couple of months, you'll have noticed that I spent a lot of time in Minnesota. I was with family and close friends, and he was out on the West Coast doing the same. We were just trying to take time and gain some clarity as to what was the next best step in our lives together or as individuals." Kufrin noted that the split decision was reached "after many conversations" and wasn't something "we just arrived at one night" or something that was "based solely off of one Instagram post or somebody else’s opinions or comments."
Gerard Butler and Morgan Brown
Butler and Brown began dating in 2014. He is the ruggedly handsome star of 300 and the Fallen franchise. She is a real-estate developer and designer.
The two were an on-again, off-again couple who seemingly went off for good in 2016. But they were linked again in the press when PDA pics of them at the beach surfaced in 2017. In photos obtained by Just Jared in August 2020, the couple was spotted together in Venice Beach, California. But their masked smooch apparently did not seal them. People was the first outlet to report the news of their latest split.
Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone
The Bachelor in Paradise stars are moving forward with their divorce, Nielson revealed on Instagram six months after the pair announced their separation in February. "The past 8 months have not been easy... I’ve been torn between mourning a life that could’ve been… and determined to fight for the future that I know I deserve," she wrote. "With respect and support for one another, Chris and I have decided to move forward with filing for divorce. We are grateful for the events that brought us to find one another, as we have been great teachers on our journey of personal discovery and growth." Nielson, who appeared on Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of The Bachelor in 2018, and Randone, who competed for Becca Kufrin's heart on The Bachelorette the same year, both entered Bachelor in Paradise in 2018 as villains from their respective seasons. They got engaged on that season of BiP and wed in June 2019 in Mexico.

Disick is focused on his family and business ventures. Rumors of their split were first reported in May, which came shortly after Disick checked himself in and out of rehab. However, the two were spotted celebrating the Fourth of July together, making fans wonder if they were back on. Fans were also speculating that Disick had reignited his romance with Kourtney Kardashian, with whom he shares three children, sons Mason, 10, and Reign, 5, and daughter Penelope, 8. In June, eagle-eyed fans picked up on the fact that Kardashian was wearing her ex's flannel shirt in one of her Instagram posts, and in August, Disick left a flirty comment on Kardashian's bathing suit pic. The two split in July 2015 after nine years together.
Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson
A source close to the "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" singer and the Australian crooner told ET on Aug. 13 that the couple has split. The breakup happened weeks ago, but the reason for the split is not known. Fans believe Cyrus alluded to their break up in an Instagram post earlier this week, which she captioned, "Forever and ever no more. 🖤 The #MidnightSky is the road I’m taking.... head high up in the clouds." TMZ was first to report the breakup. Cyrus and Simpson began dating in October 2019, after her brief romance with Kaitlynn Carter. Last August, Cyrus split from then-husband Liam Hemsworth; their divorce was finalized in January.
Jennifer Garner and John Miller
The actress and the businessman have called it quits after almost two years of dating, according to multiple reports in early August. According to Us Weekly parted on "very amicable terms." News broke in October 2018 that Garner was dating Miller after finalizing her divorce from Ben Affleck. A source told ET at the time that the two had been dating for a few months after immediately hitting it off when they met through mutual friends. "He is warm, fun and incredibly smart," the source said of Miller, who's the CEO of Cali Group -- a tech company that owns Miso Robotics and a chain of 50 CaliBurger restaurants -- and has also been married previously.

I don't think either of us have been happy for a while." Preda said their breakup wasn't a result of "what's happening in the world."

"We both have grown immensely and been through so much together - so this isn’t the end of our story, it’s the start of a whole new chapter for us." Randolph also shared a slideshow filled with pics of the two, adding that sharing their breakup news is "one of the hardest things I have had to share as neither one of us is quite ready to talk about it yet." She added that she loves Underwood "very much" and has an "enormous amount of respect for him," saying, "We have both learned and grown so much these past couple years, and will always have each others back. Always." The pair initially got together on season 23 of The Bachelor but were never officially engaged.

"I wanted everyone to hear everything from me, and this is it," Green said. The 46-year-old actor said he and Fox started to grow apart at the end of last year, after Fox was away shooting a film for five weeks. "Neither one of us did anything to each other. She's always been honest with me. I've always been honest with her," he shared. "We've had an amazing relationship. I will always love her. And I know she will always love me and I know as far as a family what we have built is really cool and really special.” According to Green, he and Fox will "still do family vacations and holidays as a family and really make that a focus for the kids."

They finally confirmed the relationship in June 2019, while stepping out together for The Trevor Project's TrevorLIVE Gala in New York City. Delevingne was the recipient of the Trevor Project Hero Award, and during her acceptance speech, she wasn't shy about expressing her love for the Pretty Little Liars star, saying, "She's one of the people who helped me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought." Three months later, Delevingne addressed why she had been hesitant to go public with their relationship to Elle UK, explaining, "Because it's sacred. I get why people care so much, and I don’t want to be so secretive that people think I’m ashamed of anything. But I’ve never been in a relationship where things are so public, or where I posted pictures of someone else. This seemed different."

The breakup, which was Anderson’s idea, came after one year of dating. "The last eight weeks have been rough," he said while discussing the split on Jeff Lewis Live, which airs on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy. "He's had a lot of anxiety, a lot of frustration, and it got to a point where I felt that he was hyper-critical of me and it was a lot of negativity and there was just always complaining." The two made their relationship Instagram official in August, after romance reportedly bloomed in March 2018.

That said, I'll try, because so many of you supported us over the years like a family would.

Star got candid about how he and his "soulmate" had been through so much in the past years and knew fans were shocked, but it appeared like the two ended things amicably, with Star praising Schwandt for being "the only man that was ever confident enough to love me."

"I’m happy to still be able to sit with Jake and laugh as we do this- but for right now we both are taking a break to focus on our own very crazy lives. I’ll never know what the future holds and i will always love Jake and everything we did. I’m grateful to know throughout this i’ve made a best friend for life & found someone to do life with when no one understood me." Mongeau also made a somewhat confusing reference to her and Paul's apparently not-legally-binding marriage, writing, "Here’s to 2020, working on us, and my new Lamborghini since i get half of everything!" Soon after, Paul shared the same photo and revealed that both he and Mongeau had written their break-up announcements while lying side by side. "As Tana and I sit next to each other writing captions about taking a break we’re literally laughing at how crazy and stupid the past couple months have been and cracking jokes at how silly this all seems," Paul wrote. "I’m keeping custody of Thor but Tana unfortunately gets my Lamborghini?. I wouldn’t change anything that happened," Paul added, "We’re best friends and right now it’s best for us to focus on our lives & see what the future holds."
