We are almost halfway through the year of 2015, and a lot has happened in the realm of Hollywood and celebrity culture. More specifically, we are talking about the major celeb splits that have already happened this year. And yes people, there have been some really big breakups already this year. We are talking about names like Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Emma Stone and even one of the dreamy doctors from the hit show Grey's Anatomy. There are also some varying lengths of relationships here; from a couple of months, to a few years and even one marriage that split up after an amazing 15 years of matrimony. Take a look at the list below and you're probably going to find some entries that might shock and surprise you.
10 Miley Cyrus & Patrick Schwarzenegger
This is a break-up that lot of people probably saw coming. The fact of the issue is that both of them are so young, and they’ll probably have several more relationships and flings before either of them actually settles down and get married. Their breakup started when pictures surfaced during spring break of Patrick hanging out with another girl looking a little too cozy. This mystery girl was apparently just a friend, but the rumor is Miley thought he didn’t fight hard enough to prove his love for her after the embarrassing situation. So that was it, and the two are going their separate ways. Their tale of young puppy love is officially over.
9 Ariana Grande & Big Sean
Big Sean doesn’t seem to have the best luck when it comes to the relationship department. He was only going out with Ariana for 8 months, before things fizzled quickly. According to TMZ, it all started this February when she failed to show up and support him for a huge show at The House of Blues in LA. She was apparently getting ready for the Grammy awards. Then there were other incidents during which Big Sean thought she was being immature and a spendthrift. The last straw was apparently when Justin Bieber appeared at an Ariana show and hugged her suggestively from behind. So that’s it people, another celeb relationship bites the dust.
8 Bobby Flay & Stephanie March
The 50-yr-old Bobby Flay is a real titan of the restaurant and cuisine industries. He owns several successful restaurants around the country and he’s pretty much the resident superstar at the Food Network television channel. Well, it seems he’s been spending too much time in the kitchen because the official news is that he is getting a divorce from his wife of 10 years, the actress Stephanie March. According to an inside source, the two have been on the rocks for a while and this is just a culmination of all the issues they have been having. Being an in demand chef takes a toll with all the long hours, and that might just be a big reason for this breakup.
7 Andrew Garfield & Emma Stone
This is one breakup that happened this year that hurt a lot of fans and Hollywood onlookers. This is because Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield really looked like the perfect, young celebrity couple. But with actors, things can happen at any time to send a relationship south. Apparently, the 31-yr-old Garfield is in a dark place mentally for an intense movie he’s currently filming for Martin Scorsese titled Silence. He is said to be taking the role a little too seriously and this has been a huge burden on their relationship. The two are apparently taking a break, but inside sources are saying the relationship is officially over. What a shame!
6 Mandy Moore & Ryan Adams
Before they filed for divorce earlier this year, the former pop star and actress Mandy Moore and popular singer/songwriter Ryan Adams were one of the cutest music couples around. They just had an indie, super -cutesy vibe about them, and they seemed like the kind of couple you’d love to have a nice long dinner with. They were married for six years and things seemingly fizzled to the point where they needed to part ways. When news of their divorce officially hit the web, the couple’s rep released the following comment, “It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways, and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time.” Here’s hoping they both find happiness in their next relationships.
5 Patrick and Jillian Dempsey
It’s always sad when you see a marriage that has lasted for more than ten years come apart. But that’s life and that’s the way things go sometimes. Patrick Dempsey is a bona fide television star and he is also one of the original cast members of the long-running medical drama on ABC, Grey’s Anatomy. Earlier this year, he broke up with his wife Jillian Dempsey; they had been together for ten years. She’s a makeup artist and the two of them had been together for 15 years. They are also the parents to three lovely children. This is definitely a sad case, but it seems the split is an amicable one.
4 Bradley Cooper & Suki Waterhouse
There is no doubt about it, Bradley Cooper is one of the most respected actors in Hollywood today. He has really separated himself from the pack by being able to perform in really dramatic and serious movies that still do exceedingly well at the box office. For the last two years, he has been in a relationship with the sexy 23-yr-old British model, Suki Waterhouse. Things seemed to be going just peachy when reports surfaced that they had parted ways in March. But just as recently as Coachella, Brad and Suki were seen hanging out again, so maybe a rekindling is in the works here.
3 Giada de Laurentiis and Todd Thompson
We have already talked about one of the stars of the Food Network channel and we have another breakup featuring another personality of that channel. This time, we’re talking about the lovely Italian chef, Giada De Laurentiis. The 44-yr-old petite beauty had been married since 2003 to her husband Todd Thompson. They have a 6-yr-old daughter together, and Todd actually used to appear repeatedly on her show Everyday Italian. She announced the news of the split on her Facebook page and part of her message included, “Our focus on the future and overwhelming desire for our family’s happiness has given us the strength to move forward on separate, yet always connected paths.”
2 Louis Tomlinson and Eleanor Calder
There has been a lot going down in the One Direction hemisphere this year. Most recently, the news hit the internet that one of their most loved members Zayn Malik was leaving the group. Here’s another piece of One Direction news that might have flown under the radar. Band member Louis Tomlinson ended his relationship with his girlfriend of 3 years, Eleanor Calder. The young couple had been together for three years, but the strain of him being always on tour (9 months of the year) was just too much for the relationship to handle. Well, he’s only 23-yrs-old and we’re sure there will be many more loving girlfriends in his pop star career.
1 Agyness Deyn & Giovani Ribisi
This is one Hollywood split that happened under the radar earlier this year. The 40-yr-old Giovanni Ribisi is the actor from hit movies like Avatar and Saving Private Ryan. He got married in 2012 to the actress/model Agyness Deyn. It was apparently a whirlwind romance and their marriage was a quiet and private affair. They ended up filing for divorce early this year and the reason was mentioned as being irreconcilable differences. Before getting married to Deyn, Ribisi was involved in a long term relationship with the indie chanteuse Cat Powers. He apparently dumped her to get with his new model bride. So maybe this is one of those cases where what goes around comes around.
