Break-ups are never easy and they're even more difficult when you’re a celebrity in the limelight. Not only do you have to deal with the paparazzi and endless articles written about what apparently went wrong, but you also have to deal with fans feeling the pain as well. For whatever reason, when celebrities break up, us normal people tend to feel a sense of loss as well, especially if it was a couple that seemed to be happily married or had been together for a decade or so (which, by Hollywood’s standards, is basically a lifetime).
With every year that passes, we watch our favorite celebrities start dating, get married, have babies and, yes, break up. The break-ups come in all shapes and sizes. Some come with rumors of infidelity. Others, like the whole Brad Pitt-Angelina Jolie-Jennifer Aniston ordeal, come with pretty much confirmed infidelity stories, even if Brad maintains that he didn’t hook up with Angie until after the divorce. We’ve all seen Mr. and Mrs. Smith and it was hot. Whatever the case may be, it’s sad that another one of your favorite stars is only able to find love in the movies in which they star rather then in real life.
2015 proved to be a rough year for relationships of all shapes and sizes. Some of the break ups came from married couples with children, long-term relationships with children, or long-term relationships without children. Whatever the case may be, we were really rooting for these ten relationships to work but sadly, they did not:
10 Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick
9 Kaley Cuoco & Ryan Sweeting
8 Megan Fox & Brian Austin Green
7 Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert
6 Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale
5 Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield
4 Patrick Dempsey & Jillian Fink
3 Amy Poehler & Nick Kroll
2 Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner
1 Jon Hamm & Jennifer Westfeldt
The actor known for his role as Don Draper in Mad Men (and for being an overall stud) Jon Hamm had been with his girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt, actress and screenwriter, for a whooping 18 years. Considering that this is a Hollywood relationship, that's a pretty impressive. Unfortunately, the couple split this year. It is reported that Westfeldt often dealt with Hamm's party boy lifestyle and at times, she often took on a more mother-like role than the role of a girlfriend. In February, Hamm checked into rehab for alcohol abuse, which may have shifted the dynamic of their relationship. Hamm and Westfeldt announced their split in September, but Hamm still made sure to thank Westfeldt during his Emmy acceptance speech because he's Jon Hamm and he's classy.
