Everyone knows celebrities and love go together like oil and vinegar. Celebrities normally credit their breakups to scheduling conflicts. Others normally chalk it up to them having gigantic egos and extremely high standards. Whatever the case, celebrity couples have trouble lasting. TheRichest recently looked at the shocking breakups of 2015. But is it actually fair to use the word shocking when it comes to celebrity couples splitting up? It really shouldn’t be when they never stay together. Nobody was surprised when Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth didn’t last.
In reality, there are a few couples that have stood the test of time to this point, such as Jay-Z and Beyonce, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi. Why them? No idea. I’m not a psychic, but think I can make a few generalizations about why some couples don’t work. Age is a huge breakup factor. Maybe young Hollywood stars aren’t ready to pass on the attention that is thrown at them or maybe they’re just too busy to fully commit. Either way, the older the couple, the more likely they are to stay together.
The second factor would be occupation. Rock stars are known to sleep around, just look at the amount of people Mick Jagger and Gene Simmons have supposedly slept with. The split of a touring rock legend and a famous actress who have completely different schedules such as Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow or Chris Martin and Jennifer Lawrence isn’t shocking. Going off these two generalizations, a few other smaller ones, and my analysis of social media and the celebrities’ upcoming schedules, here are the 10 celebrity couples most likely to split by the end of 2015.
10 Will Smith And Jada Pinkett-Smith
Rumors have been running rampant the last two years that Will Smith isn't getting "jiggy with it" with his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith. The two have been married for 17 years and have two children, Willow and Jaden. The root of such "splitsville" rumors began with the filming of Focus in 2013. Several photos captured a cheerful Smith with his stunning co-star Margot Robbie hanging out. Both Jada and Will have addressed the plethora of rumors surrounding their relationship, admitting that a marriage "goes through stages." Will this new stage last into the new year? Doubt it.
9 Taylor Swift And Calvin Harris
8 Iggy Azalea And Nick Young
7 Kanye West And Kim Kardashian
6 Johnny Depp And Amber Heard
5 Russell Wilson And Ciara
4 Jennifer Lawrence And Michael Fassbender
3 Chris Pratt And Anna Farris
2 Matthew McConaughey And Camila Alves
1 Jennifer Aniston And Justin Theroux
This one will probably piss readers off more than some of the others on this list. This couple passes all of my generalizations about celebrity breakups, so why would I put them? Jennifer Aniston’s love life is akin to a gambler's relationship with NBA team, New York Knicks - you always bet against it. I am a big Aniston fan; Rachel in the hit sitcom Friends is my dream girl. But her track record indicates this relationship will end sooner rather than later.
