Remember when people said 2021 would be better than 2020? Clearly, they don’t know what they’re talking about. Not only did it get much worse in the health department, and the prices went up even more, but for some celebrities, it got simply unbearable.
Here are the eight biggest celeb breakups of 2021 so far.
1. Rebel Wilson and Jacob Bush
Last year, Rebel started an affair with a handsome millionaire Jacob Bush, and you could see they were happy. She lost almost 90 lbs and had already started to make up plans for the wedding and children. But in early February, the couple suddenly broke up without any public explanation.

2. Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman
Zoe and Karl met through a mutual friend in 2016, and two years later, the actress admitted that they got engaged. The couple got married in Paris on June 29, 2019. However, this year in early January, People magazine reported that Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman had filed for divorce.
3. Bill and Melinda Gates
Bill Gates and his wife Melinda announced their breakup on May 4. According to TMZ, Melinda was the one who filed a petition for divorce. According to her, their marriage was somehow completely destroyed after 27 happy years. After the announcement, Bill tweeted that he and Melinda no longer believed they could grow together as a couple, so they had to split.
4. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
This breakup was first reported by TMZ and later confirmed by a Kardashian representative. Rumors of Kim and Kanye’s split started popping up back in January when she was spotted without a wedding ring. This will probably be known as one of the loudest divorces of 2021!
5. Shia LaBeouf and Margaret Qualley
Rumors of LaBeouf and Qualley dating started when the two were photographed kissing. And this was just days after Shia was dumped by the singer FKA Twigs, who accused him of self-abuse. Apparently, these statements frightened Margaret, and they broke up in early January 2021.
6. Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas
In the same ill-fated January 2021, Ana de Armas broke up her relationship with Ben Affleck. During the pandemic, they were often seen hanging out together in Los Angeles and with Affleck’s children from his ex-wife Jennifer Garner. After their split, the paparazzi spotted a life-size cardboard figure of de Armas thrown into a trash can outside Affleck’s house, so we’re guessing that’s all she wrote.
7. Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez
Rumors about their breakup have been circulating for a long time, but the official representatives of the stars stated that the couple’s simply having a difficult period. But in April 2021, Lopez posted a series of pictures on Instagram without a wedding ring, letting the cat out of the bag.
8. Ashley Benson and G-Eazy
The two stars have teamed up to record a cover of Radiohead’s “Creep” in April 2020, and the chemistry sparked. The romance began immediately after the premiere but seems like it’s over now. Everyone found out about their divorce in February 2021. Ashley was the one who filed the papers because she didn’t like the way G-Eazy treated her.
