Summer has barely begun, and yet celebrity relationships are ending faster than my New Year’s resolutions.

And while there are a lot of new couples to get excited about (Kim and Pete continue to be a nonstop source of entertainment), it’s time to look back at the celebs who have sunk their relationships in 2022.

August 2022: Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans

Kelsea and Morgan are ending their marriage after five years. Kelsea broke the news on Insta Stories, saying “Friends, I have always tried my best to share my life with you in a real and vulnerable way, while also protecting layers of my personal life as they unfold. This is now public record so I wanted you to hear from me directly that I am going through a divorce. This deeply difficult decision is the result of a journey of love, growth, and effort that ultimately has come to an end. It’s hard to find the words here…but I feel extremely grateful for the years of marriage to Morgan and hopeful for the next seasons.”


August 2022: Olivia Jade and Jacob Elordi

According to Us Weekly, while these two “enjoyed spending time together,” they’re fully over. She’s “living it up” and he is “completely focused” on his career.


August 2022: Olivia Rodrigo and Zack Bia

These two simply fizzled! No literally, that’s what a source told Us Weekly, ahem: “Their relationship sort of fizzled. They were casually dating but haven’t spent time together in a while. There were no issues — they both have different work schedules and different friend groups.”


August 2022: JoJo Siwa and Kylie Prew

Kylie confirmed that she and JoJo have broken up again after briefly rekindling their relationship, explaining, “I’ve been single for almost two months, and it’s okay, it’s not deep, I promise everything’s fine. Not everything has to be messy and gross, because it’s not. And I just wanted to clear the air.”

She added, “We’re both safe and happy and healthy and that’s all that matters. And it doesn’t need to be drama because that just gives everyone unwanted anxiety, especially if they’re like me.”


August 2022: Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser

Alexis and Vincent (who met on the set of Mad Men) are getting divorced after eight years of marriage. The news was confirmed by Us Weekly, and thus far, there aren’t any details about why they’re splitting.


August 2022: Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney

Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney split after three years of marriage, and it doesn’t seem like Michelle saw it coming. Announcing the news in a statement to Us Weekly, she explained, “To say that I am totally devastated doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel for myself and for my family. The rug has been completely pulled from underneath me and now I must figure out how to move forward. With such small children, I ask for privacy and kindness.”


August 2022: Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson

Shocking, I know! But multiple outlets, including E! News, spoke to sources who said that Kim and Pete decided to “be just friends” because their schedules “made it really difficult to maintain a relationship.”


July 2022: Chelsea Handler and Jo Koy

NOOOOO. This one hurts, but it looks like there’s hope of a reconciliation. After all, Chelsea posted on Instagram re: the split, “This is not an ending. It’s another beginning, and it’s a comfort to know that I am still loved and love this man the way the sun loves the moon and the moon loves the sun. YOUR PERSON IS COMING. So, please continue to root for both of us, because you never know what life will bring.”


July 2022: Emily Ratajkowski and Sebastian Bear-McClard

After EmRata was spotted without a ring, a source confirmed her and Sebastian’s split to People, saying, “They split recently. It was Em’s decision. She is doing okay. She is strong and focused on her son. She loves being a mom.”


June 2022: Anna Kendrick and Bill Hader

Entertainment Tonight reported that Anna and Bill have parted ways, with a source simply/briefly saying, “Bill Hader and Anna Kendrick have broken up.” Aaand…that’s that!

The decision was not made lightly, and it was obviously not an easy one to make.”


June 2022: Michelle Young and Nayte Olukoya

June 2022: Lauren Graham and Peter Krause

Please join me in a chorus of nooooooooooo. People reports that Parenthood stars Lauren Graham and Peter Krause have split up after more than a decade of dating. A rep for Lauren confirmed the news, actually noting the pair “quietly ended their relationship last year.” Hate to see it!

May 2022: Steve Burton and Sheree Burton

This one is for all the General Hospital fans out there. ☹️ After 23 years of marriage, Steve Burton announced he was ending his marriage to Sheree while accusing her of being pregnant with another man’s child. In a statement posted on Instagram Stories, Steve wrote, “I wanted to clear something up. Sheree and I are separated. She recently announced that she’s expecting her fourth child. The child is not mine. We are still co-parenting our three beautiful kids. We would appreciate privacy at this time. Much luv, Steve.”


April 2022: Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers

Shailene and Aaron have broken up twice this year, but it looks like they’re officially done done. These two first called off their engagement in February 2022, with a source telling Entertainment Tonight, “They tried to make their relationship work, but with busy careers in different industries, it was hard to see one another. The two have no animosity toward one another and plan to remain as friends.”

They then reunited for a minute, but an E! News source said at the end of April 2022, “Shailene tried to give it another shot and was spending time with Aaron. But she quickly saw that everything was on his terms and nothing was going to change. There was no reason to continue and she’s done with it again.”


April 2022: Ali Wong and Justin Hakuta

Andrew and Alyssa broke up in early April 2022 after just a few months of dating, with a source telling Entertainment Tonight, “Their work commitments and schedules made it hard for them to continue their relationship.

That said, Alyssa caused some confusion post-breakup by sharing a picture of herself and Andrew on Instagram, which she captioned, “If you must gossip at least use a cute photo. Lol, love you, AG.”


April 2022: Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus

This is actually the third time Tish has filed for divorce from Billy Ray, so who knows? They could get back together! Either way, Us Weekly obtained court documents in which Tish cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the breakup, saying she and Billy have not “cohabited as man and wife for a continuous period of more than two years.”


April 2022: Natasha Lyonne and Fred Armisen

Russian Doll actor Natasha Lyonne confirmed that she Fred ended their long-term relationship because she wanted a swimming pool and he didn’t. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

April 2022: Kenan Thompson and Christina Evangeline

March 2022: Chris Pine and Annabelle Wallis

Us Weekly reported that Chris and Annabelle had broken up after four years of dating in early March 2022, with a source saying the actors “haven’t been together for a few months now.” No reason was given for the split, so perhaps this was just a case of two incredibly hot people drifting apart?

After a truly wild and unprecedented month and a half, Julia and Kanye parted ways. And there were literally no hard feelings!

As Julia said on Instagram Stories at the time, “Y’all would love it if I was soooo upset!

February 2022: Cory Booker and Rosario Dawson

This sweet couple broke up after two years of dating, although a source ~close~ to Cory told People they are still “good friends,” so at least there’s that!
