When you’re a celebrity, your relationship status is always public. That probably doesn’t feel nice. But you know what’s worse? When you’re going through a breakup – it’s also very public. So today, while we talk about celebs that are newly single in 2018, let’s try to sympathize, yeah?
1. Nicki Minaj
Nicki has been dating rapper Nas for about 7 months and they seemed as happy as ever. We saw them celebrate his birthday together, and at some point they even dressed up in matching outfits. However, due to their schedules they weren’t able to see each other very often and that spark just fizzled out, leaving Nicki single again.
2. Kourtney Kardashian
Kourtney’s relationship with Younes Bendjima ended recently. The couple split after being together for almost two years. On one hand we’re sad for Kourtney and hope that she eventually finds the right man for her, on the other hand we didn’t expect them to last even this long.
3. Jennifer Aniston
Who knew that in 2018 we would still be rooting for Jennifer to find the love that she deserves. First she had that huge heartbreak with Brad Pitt, and now her marriage with Justin Theroux came to an end. That girl just has the worst luck with men, but we’ll keep our fingers crossed for her.
4. Lena Dunham
It’s hard to believe that Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff split up. Those two seemed like they were perfect together from the moment they met on a blind date. They just looked so in love and they always talked about how comfortable they were with each other. They were together for six years, which is like an eternity for celebs but it looks like they didn’t get the happy ending we were all hoping for.
5. Ben Affleck
Ben Affleck is back on the market, ladies. His year long relationship with Lindsay Shookus just didn’t work out no matter how much they tried, so in the end they called it quits. But it seems like they’re both happy with the decision and ready to mingle with some new people.
6. Lucy Hale
Lucy Hale and her co-star Riley Smith are no longer together. They basically broke up soon after their show Life Sentence was cancelled after just one season. Turns out their love wasn’t a lifelong thing either, since Lucy Hale has already been seen cosying up with a different guy.
Usher and his wife of two years Grace Miguel split up this year too. It’s the second divorce for Usher and we’re sure that’s taken a toll on him, but their joint breakup announcement stated that it was a mutual decision and they still have a lot of love and respect for each other. So you know, at least it ended peacefully.
8. Channing Tatum
Listen, we know Channing is a very attractive guy and millions of fangirls wished he was single so they would have a chance, but we never actually thought it would happen. It was like his marriage to Jenna Dewan was part of his appeal, he as taken, he was a family man, which made him even more dreamy. But the day has come and the couple chose to end their 9 year marriage. They did it in a very positive and peaceful way, announcing it on social media and saying they still love each other deeply and they will remain best friends.
9. Cheryl Cole
When Cheryl Cole first started dating Liam Payne from One Direction we all thought it would be a fling, a short lived romance that we’ll all remember with a laugh. But then they had a child together and no matter how shocking and unexpected it was we took that as a sign that they’re serious about this relationship. Well, after 2 years together they broke up. However they’ll always have that connection of having a son together.
10. Harry Styles
Speaking of former One Direction starts, Harry Styles is newly single in 2018. His relationship with Camille Rowe came to an end after the end of his tour. I guess it wasn’t meant to be.
