Year of the Break Up: Couples Who Split in 2015

Love doesn’t always last, and couples do break up from time to time. But it happened so often in 2015, you’d think splitting was the hot new trend that’s hit the celebrity world.

While we’ve seen couples like Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, as well as Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder and Twilight actress Nikki Reed, tie the knot this year, there are way, way more couples that just couldn’t make it work. And after a while, it seemed like there was a new breakup each week. (Because there was!)

Although new celeb couples may be more likely not to last long, there were a number of longtime marriages that headed straight for divorce, making us question if love really lasts in the public eye. If Gwen and Gavin can’t make it…is love really dead?! (And don’t even get us started on Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards.)

With all the couples that bit the dust this year, we wanted to give you a solid recap of the relationships that fell apart in 2015 — from the dramatic, shocking splits to the “amicable” separations.

Pour one out for these folks, ’cause this is truly the Year of the Break Up. Check out the gallery above.
