Being a celebrity means a lot of publicity. Celebrities have an open book of a life with positive and negative issues, gossip, and controversies rising along with their well-established names. Relationships, dating, marriage, breakups, and divorces are hot topics that will never get old and will always excite the public.
Celebrities, fame, and popularity aside, these are people who need normal relationships, too. Just like you, they are also searching to find their true love. Just like you, they also wish to have someone to share their lives with. Just like you, they find themselves arguing with their partners. Most importantly, just like you, they also have petty issues that sometimes push them to end their relationships.
What really causes breakups, divorces, and goodbyes? People assumed that cheating is really the primary cause of a breakup, but seriously, it is not. It is always the lack of communication that makes relationships fall apart and eventually break into pieces. Miscommunication is the leading cause of goodbyes in a relationship.
Why is that so? When you and your partner do not listen to each other and understand each other, your relationship is doomed. Lack of communication can lead to petty issues like nagging, no time for each other, busy schedules, and incompatibility that will eventually result in relationships falling apart. Everyone experiences these petty issues, especially celebrities whose relationships are open to the public.
Issues, gossips, and controversies are results of publicity. Most of the time, these sensationalize the real, simple problem. Celebrities often find themselves saying goodbye to their partners because of lack of communication leading to petty issues and heightened with publicity.
Here are 16 celebrity breakups that are caused by petty issues you can never imagine.
16 Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac
Black Widow may have an ongoing romance with The Hulk, but in real life, the Scarlett Johansson is once again single. She is now officially divorced after her three years of marriage with her French ex-husband, Romain Dauriac. Johansson and Dauriac have one beautiful daughter, Rose Dorothy Dauriac.
What is the reason for their divorce? While it was unclear what the specific reason for their divorce is, their divorce documents declared that their marriage reached its end because it was irretrievably broken. According to some credible sources, a marriage becomes irretrievably broken if there is adultery, intolerability, unreasonable behaviour, desertion, and separation for years.
In Johansson's case, people are really not sure. However, reporters and paparazzi are sure that Dauriac was shocked and clueless about what happened. Dauriac gave up his career as a magazine editor and manager of a creative agency to raise their daughter while Johansson focused on her career.
15 Chris Evans and Jenny Slate
Black Widow already said goodbye to her real-life lover and so has Captain America. The Avengers actor, Chris Evans, also said goodbye to his lover, Jenny Slate. We can praise Cap for keeping his relationship with Slate as private as possible. However, the rumour mill will never let them keep their relationship private.
Why did Cap say his farewell to Slate? According to some Hollywood gossip sources, Evans and Slate called it quits because of "incompatibility." They adore each other, but they think they are not good for each other. In a normal relationship, if both people are comfortably adoring and in-love with each other, the relationship will last. That is not the case with Cap and Slate because that is not enough for them – Cap is for action and Slate is for comedy.
14 Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom
In 2017, Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry also said their goodbyes to each other. After their 10 months of love and dating, it was reported that Perry pulled the plug on their relationship. Rumors confirmed that Perry's ex, John Mayer, is the reason for their breakup.
It was reported by E! that a trusted source confirmed that Perry and John Mayer will soon be spending some time together after the Perry and Bloom split because Perry still has a "strong love" for the A-list singer. However, a second source gave another possible reason and that is their potential lack of communication.
Sources cited that the couple was having a hard time being on the same page. They lost understanding and they just wanted to have some space and air. If they truly are in love with each other, this petty reason should never come in their way.
13 Chris Pratt and Anna Faris
Another marriage came to an end in 2017. The Guardians of the Galaxy actor, Chris Pratt, already declared an official separation with his wife, Anna Faris. They announced their separation on Facebook and they think that it is for the better since they are already recognizing differences after their years of marriage. No matter how private and peaceful they want to end their relationship, gossips and issues will continue to circulate.
According to some sources, their once happy home was invaded by Hollywood and fame. Who would have thought that fame can be a reason for separation? Before they got married, Faris was obviously the bigger star because of her blockbuster movies. As time went by, Pratt gained so much fame after starring in different movies such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Jurassic World, and Passengers.
This kind of fame pushed the couple to their limits and they lacked communication. There were also rumors stating that Pratt engaged in an intimate relationship with Jennifer Lawrence and now could be secretly dating Olivia Munn. Be strong, Anna Faris!
12 Robert Pattinson And FKA Twigs
Do you remember how hot and famous Robert Pattinson is? Yes, Edward Cullen found his true love in the Twilight saga with Bella Swan, but the actor Robert Pattinson failed to make FKA twigs the Bella of his real life. In 2017, reports confirmed that they already parted ways after years of engagement.
The reason behind their split is that Pattinson said he "grew tired" of their relationship. Because they had been spending less time together, they thought that they were already drifting apart when they decided to call off their engagement. For the record, Pattinson was reportedly leaning on Katy Perry after this "difficult" time of breakup. Reports also sensationalized this idea and speculated that there might be something going on between Katy Perry and Pattinson.
11 Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill
Do you remember when Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill were still dating and screaming to the world that they were together? Well, those days are over! Sorry, Minaj and Mill fans, but your favorite rappers already called it quits with their relationship. Why do they need to announce breakups?? That is probably because of publicity and new articles about them.
According to Minaj, she needed to focus on work because she really loves her work. Things just did not work out well, as they finally needed to say goodbye to their relationship. So, Minaj took to Twitter and announced that she was single on January 2017. However, work may not be her focus because in May 2017, she already announced that she was with Nas.
10 Adriana Lima and Julian Edelman
People say that love should not be a hindrance in building your career. However, that does not mean that you should invest all of your time on work and none with your significant other. A career should also not be a hindrance to creating a good relationship with your loved ones. Conflicting schedules is the main reason why supermodel, Adriana Lima, and football player, Julian Edelman, called it quits.
They forgot how to hang out. They have their own careers and their careers are entirely opposite to each other – modeling and football. However, that should never be a hindrance. If they really want the relationship to work, they should have found a way to be with each other. Unfortunately, they already parted ways.
9 Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma
Oh dear, Lizzie McGuire should have just stayed with Gordo. However, Lizzie McGuire actress, Hilary Duff, found other love of her life in reality and that was Matthew Koma. Unfortunately, they parted ways because of "busy schedules." Lizzie and Gordo also had busy schedules, but they did not part ways and said goodbye. So, why are busy schedules always the issue?
Duff dated Koma for three months until they decided to end their relationship because of conflicting schedules. Do you think this was reason enough? If you truly want to be with that person, you will definitely find a way to make it work. However, there were also rumors that Duff rekindled her relationship with Jason Walsh, who happened to be her former partner. What do you think?
8 Bella Hadid and The Weeknd
Bella Hadid is one of the most famous and popular models of today's generation. That is enough reason for her life to always be an open book to the public. One of the most shocking revelations that she has is her breakup with the 18-month-long partner, Abel Tesfaye, who is mostly known as The Weeknd. What was the root of their breakup?
According to People, it was their schedules that made their relationship became so complicated and difficult. Again, availability and being able to give more time to your partner should never be an issue. You will truly find ways to catch up and hang out.
Shortly after their breakup, The Weeknd was spotted spending time with Selena Gomez, confirming that they were dating. Bella's revenge was to unfollow Gomez on Instagram and post a selfie depicting how mad she really was. How petty was that?
7 Selena Gomez and The Weeknd
Just so you know, after The Weeknd broke Hadid's heart and trust, he already began dating Selena Gomez. Until one day, they announced that they had already called it quits. Once again, their first line of defense was "busy schedules," which is really petty enough to begin with. They even moved together! So, there are no reasons why busy schedules will even be an issue.
Amidst their hot breakup topic, fans, paparazzi, and reporters noticed that Justin Bieber is going back into Gomez' life, which gave the rumor that Bieber can be the reason behind the breakup. Just like Hadid, The Weeknd came to a very petty revenge: he flirted with Bieber's ex, Yovanna Ventura. For the record, Bieber did not really care. So, sorry The Weeknd!
6 Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards
With too much pettiness happening in the world of love, Zayn Malik decided to add more petty actions to the world by breaking up with Little Mix's, Perrie Edwards, through text. Their breakup happened after Malik decided to part ways with One Direction and went solo. The reasons behind their breakup were conflicts and just out of the blue.
According to Malik, the "crazy stories flying around in the newspapers" about their relationship made him want to disappear from the public eye. That was the reason of their breakup – lack of privacy. However, they could have stayed private just like any other celebrities.
For the record, Edwards mentioned that Malik might be dating someone else back then. As a result of their breakup, she found herself homeless and helpless.
5 Naya Rivera and Big Sean
Do you know why Big Sean called off his wedding with Naya Rivera back in 2014? People might say that Ariana Grande was the reason for their breakup because that was what Rivera has been feeding the public ever since their split. On the other hand, Big Sean said that the main reason was not Ari, but Rivera herself.
Big Sean said he was quite terrified of Rivera's mindset. She was a controlling girlfriend, fiancée, and soon-to-be-wife, at least according to Big Sean. If that was not enough, Big Sean also indicated that Rivera was an insecure woman raging with jealousy that he couldn't handle.
However, Big Sean's relationship with Ariana also came to an end when reports said that Ari was "humiliated" by his lyrics. So whatever the reason is, we can cite that immaturity and jealousy are petty things that can really affect relationships so much.
4 Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris
Taylor Swift surely has a reputation for having many exes and short-term relationships, but that is fine because she might just be searching for the perfect one. However, it was really her relationship with Calvin Harris that got so much attention to the public. Many people are asking the question, "What really went wrong?"
According to E! News, Harris' camp mentioned that the real reason why the couple called it quits were their "differences" – they have a different circle of friends and that they were not compatible enough. So, why were they even dating in the first place if Harris thinks they were not compatible?
Meanwhile, the Swiftie camp mentioned that Tay Tay was really disappointed with Calvin. He did not meet her needs as her boyfriend. To make things less complicated, Harris just couldn't find time to be with Tay Tay whenever she needed him the most.
3 Kylie Jenner and Tyga
Whenever the word pettiness rises, the Kardashian-Jenner sisters are somehow always connected. This time, it is Kylie Jenner. Let us not forget that Kylie is now "happy" and "content" with Travis Scott and her baby, Stormi Webster. However, we need to take a step back in time and reminisce why Kylie and Tyga broke up.
The main reason for their breakup was their age difference! Kylie was really young for Tyga. At least, she noticed that. However, their relationship lasted for years and yet, she did not come to that realization for a very long time. There are rumors, however, stating that Kylie broke up with Tyga because Tyga was experiencing some financial issues, which could lead him to become an "MC Hammer broke-type of rapper."
2 Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna
Yes, we have another Kardashian on the list, but not a "she." Instead, it is a "he" – Rob Kardashian. Who would forget how awful his rollercoaster relationship with the American model and entrepreneur, Angela Renee White, mostly known as Blac Chyna, was?
No one would ever forget that awful relationship because they published every little thing they did on social media. Their social media drama was really the main reason for their split because they craved fame and popularity on social media and all over the world. They were attention-seekers looking for a new way on how they can take their publicity to a whole new level, which is really petty, by the way.
What can we say? It is really hard to keep up with the Kardashians in terms of relationships and pettiness.
1 Cheryl and Liam Payne
For the last, but not the least entry, we have Cheryl and Liam Payne's breakup. Just in February 2018, reports have continuously surfaced online regarding the Cheryl-Liam Payne split. Although they are trying to convince their fans that everything is going well, their fans just won't rest.
It was reported that Payne wanted to focus on his solo career, but this was not the main reason. It was Cheryl's temper that caused them to fall apart. She just couldn't help but nag Payne and complain that Payne was not there for their son. It was her nagging problems that pushed Payne away from her.
Always remember that temper should not always get in the way— control it and avoid nagging. A proper conversation that will build the bridge of communication will always be the key in keeping the relationship alive.
