Gallery: WE’RE OVER! The biggest celeb break-ups of 2021, they're 'taking out the trash...' (BANG Showbiz)
They've consciously uncoupled!
There's no doubt that 2021 has been a tough year for everyone, heck, it’s been a tough 18 months due to the COVID-19 crisis and many couples have found it too difficult to stay together. And your favourite celebrities were no stranger to to the pressures of the pandemic either. From Kim and Kanye to Gigi and Zayn, these are the biggest celebrity couples to have called it quits in 2021.
Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas
Movie star Ben Affleck and ‘Knives Out’ actress Ana de Armas met on the set of ‘Deep Water’ in early 2020 and hit it off – for a little while at least. The relationship lasted just a year before they called it quits. Spilling on the split, a source said: “Ana decided she doesn't want to live in LA and Ben wants to be close to his family. His priority is to be rooted in LA. They are in different places [in their lives.]" Months later, Ben had rekindled with his old flame Jennifer Lopez whilst Ana remains single.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
Former ‘One Direction’ star and model Gigi Hadid seemed to finally be settling down together after years of on/off dating, the pair even welcomed a baby girl named Khai in September 2020, but things had turned well and truly sour just a few months down the line. The pair announced their break up in 2021 and Zayn later appeared in court on harassment charges towards Gigi and her mother to which he pleaded no contest. A source recently said that Gigi is “done with Zayn for good".
Adele and Simon Konecki
Music icon Adele met Simon Konecki in 2011 and they began dating. The couple welcomed a son – Angelo James – in 2012. In early 2017, the couple prompted speculation that they had married in secret when spotted wearing rings. Adele later confirmed this and referred to him as her “husband” during a speech at an awards show. But by 2019, the relationship had gone sour and the couple called the whole thing off. In 2021, their divorce was finalised with the ‘Easy on Me’ hitmaker claiming that the inspiration for her hotly anticipated album ‘30’ came from the downfall of her relationship. When asked on Instagram what the new record was about, she simply said: “Divorce, baby. Divorce.”
Bill Gates and Melinda Gates
Microsoft founder Bill Gates and his wife Miranda announced their divorce in 2021, after a marriage which had lasted 27 years. According to TMZ, the pair never signed a prenup which could make the division of Bill's $130 billion net worth tricky to say the least. It was reported that they had settled on a 'separation contract' to decide what to do with their assets. An attorney at the time said they were "probably the biggest divorce case imaginable."
Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman
‘X-Men’ star Zoe Kravitz had been married to ‘Greyhound’ actor Karl Gusman since June 2019. The couple wed at the house of Zoe’s father Lenny Kravitz in Paris after an 18-month engagement. But after also spending 18 months married, the couple had clearly had enough and filed for divorce. The reason for the divorce was unclear, but it was claimed by PEOPLE that Zoe herself had filed for divorce just two days before Christmas. On the day she announced the news to the world on 2nd January 2021, she shared a cryptic meme of a drag queen throwing trash into a dumpster. The drag queen in the photo had a bag with a quote that read “People, places and things that no longer serve my greatest and highest good.” Seemingly to make her stance on the divorce clear, she captioned the post: “MOOD.”
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez
J.Lo and former baseball player Alex Rodriguez seemed to have been getting along swimmingly until 2021. The pair started their relationship in 2017 and when Alex popped the question in 2019, the pair seemed to have decided on a long engagement. But in 2021, instead of a wedding, a break-up came long. Since then, Lopez has gone round the block again and rekindled with old flame Ben Affleck.
Elon Musk and Grimes
The announcement that billionaire businessman Elon Musk and pop star Grimes had split up in September 2021 certainly came as a shock, especially as the couple had welcome their son X in 2020. The space entrepreneur noted that distance was the reason for the break-up, but was keen to point out he is still on good terms with the ‘Oblivion’ singer, with whom he still lives with. He said: “We are semi-separated but still love each other, see each other frequently and are on great terms. It’s mostly that my work at SpaceX and Tesla requires me to be primarily in Texas or traveling overseas and her work is primarily in LA. She’s staying with me now and Baby X is in the adjacent room."
Rebel Wilson and Jacob Busch
Rebel Wilson and Jacob Busch had been together for almost a year when they split up in February 2021. But the ‘Pitch Perfect’ actress sensationally revealed the news to her millions of followers that she and the Anheuser-Busch brewery heir were no more when she was attending Super Bowl alone. She captioned the post: “#singlegirl headed to the Superbowl." A source close to the comic star said the relationship had “just ran its course". Rebel herself didn’t seem too fazed by the break-up either. She said: "Any kind of break-up is hard and not ideal … I feel like, I don’t know if it’s turning 40 or coming into your own … I feel in a really good place."
"And if she decides to get married, I would imagine that there would be grandchildren not too far out for that. I'd be pretty excited about that part."
Louise Redknapp's heartbreak at Jamie's shock wedding
She's been blindsided by her ex getting marriedAnd while congratulations poured in for the happy couple, we’re told Louise was absolutely heartbroken at the news – particularly as she only found out a short time before, as her sons were part of the day. “Louise is devastated, but she’s trying to put on a brave face for the sake of the kids and everyone around her,” an insider close to the 46 year old tells heat. “She’s said that, even though Jamie told her it was on the cards, she was blindsided by it happening so soon. She doesn’t understand what the rush was or what they are trying to prove by having a surprise wedding.
Don - who shares Dakota, 32, with his ex Melanie Griffith - was asked whether he’s had the serious "where do you see yourself with my daughter?" talk with Chris yet, and he replied: "We kinda like to wait until they get a little more confident in their position, a little further down the road with each other, then we have the talk."
Dakota is best known for playing Anastasia Steele in the 'Fifty Shades' franchise.
She and Chris, 44, have been romantically involved since 2017 where they were first spotted going on a sushi date in LA.
A month after that they were seen on holiday together in Israel, and they’ve been on further romantic getaways together, most recently in July where they were on a boat ride off the coast of Mallorca, Spain.
