'Tis the season of breakups
Nick and Olivia, Gwen and Gavin, Emma and Evan. This summer, it seemed like “splitsville” wasn’t just a bowling alley, but the place where all celebrity couples seemed to stop by to end their fairytale relationships. Before you knew it, your favorite celebrity couple was over and you were in line at Target, buying your chocolate and tissues.
When two of your favorite celebrities get together, face it, you geek out inside. You know that this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship. You cannot wait to see their wedding pictures and crop yourself in the background. But sooner or later, especially in Hollywood, you will read that your favorite celebrity couple parted ways. This summer proved that would happen quite often for some of our favorite Hollywood royalties.
To kick things off, I will begin with what I consider to be the biggest breakup of the summer: Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck. With 10 years of marriage and three kids under their belt, it seemed like these two were in it to win it. It was the classic story of bad boy meets good girl, and the good girl changes him for the better. However, it seems that Garner didn’t really change Affleck when rumors of infidelity with their young nanny began swirling around.
Next on our list, we have a couple that we will forever miss keeping up with. Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian called it quits after seven years of on again-off again shenanigans. Rumors of infidelity once again reared its ugly head, with Scott photographed snuggling with an ex-girlfriend. Kourtney bounced back quickly, working on her physique, while Scott is finding it hard to get over the eldest Kardashian. For years, we have watched these two fight on their hit reality television show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but we never thought that they would actually throw in the towel on their relationship.
Following Scott and Kourtney was the breakup of one of country’s biggest power couples: Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. This divorce, in my opinion, was the biggest shocker, with Blake and Miranda constantly collaborating on music together and adopting another animal every five seconds. They were always seen smiling and taking the country world by storm. However, photographs featured many boxes on their front porch, hinting that Miranda had cheated on Blake and Blake retaliated by throwing all of her stuff out and on to the porch.
Honorable mentions for this summer’s unfortunate turn of events were the breakups of Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog, Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas, and Avril Lavinge and Chad Kroeger, among others.
This summer was certainly one to remember. You had a great time working on your golden tan and your awesome beach body, but you have lost what’s really important: the hope that love really exists in Hollywood. Let us all hope that this season of fall will not bring us the misery of celebrity breakups that the summer of 2015 did.
