Celebrity couples are known for their hush-hush dates in chic locations around L.A., London, and New York City, jet-setting around the world together for lavish vacations in private jets, and sadly, ending the relationships that their fans believed would last forever.
No relationship is easy, and we imagine that trying to maintain a romance in the public eye would be even harder. While the romantic dates in exotic locations would be a bonus, it can’t be easy to have to deal with the prying eyes of paparazzi and their lenses and have a new relationship come under scrutiny on a global scale. It’s no wonder that so many celebrity romances split up, even if there was a lot of love between the two stars to begin with.
That said, not all celebrity relationships end up crumbling under the pressure of fame. Some stars really do find happy endings, and we love celebrating each and every one that lasts. It’s no easy feat to be able to maintain a romance in the face of rumors, tabloids, paparazzi, internet trolls, nosey journalists, and demanding schedules!
Keep reading to find out which couples from the past five years have called it quits, and which are still going strong.
25 Still Going Strong: Kim Kardashian-West And Kanye West
After wedding in 2014, Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West are still going stronger than strong and are now one of the most talked-about couples in Hollywood. Today, the two share three children, North, Saint, and Chicago, and have another baby on the way.
We get a glimpse into their life together on KUTWK, and although they seem to experience their fair share of drama as well, all we can see here is love! We can’t wait for the arrival of the next baby West, either!
24 Broke Up: Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt
No, we’ve still not recovered from the 2016 split of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. They were together for longer than a decade, shared six children between them, and seemed so compatible in every way.
While the couple has remained tight-lipped on what went wrong between them, some sources have claimed that their differing parenting styles were starting to affect their relationship. Brad preferred to raise the kids according to his own traditional upbringing, while Angelina was said to be more into a modern approach.
23 Still Going Strong: Amal And George Clooney
Thankfully, one of the world’s other most prolific A-list couples is still going strong. George and Amal Clooney announced their engagement nearly five years ago in April of 2014, and the rest is history.
From the details released to the press, we know that they shared an incredibly chic and lavish wedding in Venice, Italy, for which Amal stunned in an Oscar de la Renta gown. The couple is now parents to twins Ella and Alexander and the two try their best to protect their family from the curious gaze of the media.
22 Broke Up: Miley Cyrus And Patrick Schwarzenegger
It’s hard to believe that it’s been over five years since Miley Cyrus shed her Disney image for good and twerked with Robin Thicke at the VMAs in 2013. This incident marked a new era for Miley, during which she split from long-time boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.
She started dating Patrick Schwarzenegger, the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, and the two were all about the PDA and cutesy behavior on date nights and at sports games. It was all over by 2015, though, leaving Miley open to rekindling things with a former flame.
21 Still Going Strong: Mila Kunis And Ashton Kutcher
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are another celebrity couple who announced their engagement five years ago, in February of 2014. In March of that year, the two actors and long-time friends announced that they were expecting their first child, and in October, they welcomed Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher.
Mila and Ashton married in 2015, and then in 2016, she gave birth to their second child, a son called Dimitri Portwood Kutcher. Ashton and Mila first clicked when they appeared together on That ‘70s Show and are still as in love as ever.
20 Broke Up: Suki Waterhouse And Bradley Cooper
One of the most popular couples of 2014 was Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse. This was around the time that Bradley was promoting a film, and the usually private star had Suki on his arm as he circulated red carpets and award shows throughout the year.
Daily Mail claimed that Bradley ended their relationship in 2015 because the model wasn’t supportive of his work. He now shares a daughter with girlfriend Irina Shayk, who has accompanied him to various events where he has promoted his latest film A Star Is Born.
19 Still Going Strong: Dakota Johnson And Chris Martin
Chris Martin’s relationship with Jennifer Lawrence may not have lasted, but it looks like things are still looking promising for the Coldplay frontman and 50 Shades star Dakota Johnson, who have been reported to be dating by various sources.
According to People, the two shared a date at Soho House in Malibu, California and have since been photographed holding hands. “Chris and Dakota arrived together in Chris’ car,” an eyewitness told People. “They met up with friends and had a fun night. They both seemed very happy. They were flirty, and also left the restaurant together.”
18 Still Going Strong: Amy Schumer And Chris Fischer
The way that Amy Schumer first announced her relationship with Chris Fischer to the world wasn’t so subtle! She uploaded a snap of herself sharing a kiss with the chef to IG, and then rumors started swirling that they were dating, even though her rep declined to comment on whether or not their relationship really was romantic.
In hindsight, we know it was! Amy and Chris were married in February of 2018 and the comedian is currently expecting her first child with Chris. We can't wait for her to wax poetic (and comedic) on motherhood!
17 Broke Up: Jennifer Lawrence And Chris Martin
We don’t know a lot about what went on between Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin, but we do know that it didn’t last long. Popsugar reports that it was around August of 2014 when the press got wind that there was something between the two stars, the same year that Jennifer split from her ex, Nicholas Hoult, and Chris “consciously uncoupled” from ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow.
After Jennifer attended a few Coldplay concerts and the two boarded a private jet together in L.A., they went their separate ways in late October.
16 Still Going Strong: Cameron Diaz And Benji Madden
The first date Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden went on took place at the gym, according to numerous sources. Over the next few months, the couple attended parties together with their fellow A-listers, took strolls together (during which they weren’t shy about participating in some serious PDA), and even had a few beach dates over the Fourth of July Weekend in Miami.
Reports stated that the couple was engaged by October, and today they’re still happily married. Of course, we haven't heard the pitter patter of little feet, but that doesn't mean wedded bliss isn't happening! Apparently, Cam doesn't require motherhood to feel fulfilled.
15 Broke Up: Michelle Rodriguez And Zac Efron
We first got wind of Michelle Rodriguez and Zac Efron’s relationship after the couple was photographed together on vacation in Italy with a group of friends. According to Us Weekly, this was a brief summer romance, and the two went their separate ways after getting into an argument while in Ibiza, Spain in August.
“Michelle is going to do her own thing,” a source told the magazine. “Zac knew this about her when he got with her. He’s very into her though, and perhaps more than she’s into him.”
14 Still Going Strong: Priyanka Chopra And Nick Jonas
We fall more in love with Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas every day! They were spotted together over Memorial Day weekend and were said to be hanging out all the time, but they really made things public and official when they attended the 2017 Met Gala together.
Both were dressed in Ralph Lauren, and both looked divine. They were married at the end of 2018 in a gorgeous ceremony that lasted for three days, reflected both of their cultures, and left fans frothing at the mouth.
13 Broke Up: Robert Pattinson And FKA Twigs
The relationship between Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs definitely wasn’t without drama or controversy, but we were rooting for these two. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be! These two were photographed all over the world together, getting snapped on dates in L.A., Paris, New York, Miami, London, and Even Brussels, Belgium.
They also shared a few adorable red carpet moments and always looked happy as they showed affection for each other in front of fans, spectators, and paparazzi. But by late 2017, they decided to call it quits. Robert has most recently been linked to model Suki Waterhouse.
12 Still Going Strong: Katherine Schwarzenegger And Chris Pratt
Chris Pratt was first seriously connected to Katherine Schwarzenegger, the eldest daughter of Arnold and Maria, after he was spotted spending Father’s Day with her. Following the sighting, a source told People that the actor had been on “multiple dates” with Katherine. The source also revealed that it was Katherine’s mother Maria who brought them together.
“Maria helped set them up,” revealed the source. After announcing their engagement in January 2019, the couple has hinted at a few details regarding their upcoming nuptials. Rumor has it, their wedding is going to be winter themed!
11 Broke Up: Khloe Kardashian And French Montana
For a while there, Khloe Kardashian and French Montana were almost inseparable. French threw Khloe a gorgeous 30th birthday party on a boat in New York and bought her a Jeep as a gift, and Khloe posted many tributes to her rapper beau on social media.
The two were spotted out together frequently while they were dating, leading many to believe that Khloe had finally found her happy ending. They split a few times before Khloe moved on from French for good. Today, she shares a daughter, True, with basketballer Tristan Thompson.
10 Still Going Strong: Rooney Mara And Joaquin Phoenix
Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara first fell in love on the set of Mary Magdalene, according to Page Six. They also played a couple in the film Her and “fell for each other on the set while shooting the biblical epic and have been spending a lot of time together ever since.”
In true A-lister style, the pair made their public debut on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival. Both are notoriously private about their personal lives and their relationship, but as far as we know, they’re still very much in love.
9 Broke Up: Big Sean And Ariana Grande
As we all know, Ariana Grande and Big Sean are no longer together. The pop star got candid about her relationship in her hit song ‘thank u, next’, singing, “Thought I’d end up with Sean / but it wasn’t a match,” in reference to the rapper. Ariana confirmed their romance by telling Ryan Seacrest that she “guessed” they were dating after she famously shared a kiss with him on a ride at Universal Studios.
The singer’s subsequent relationships with Ricky Alvarez, the late Mac Miller, and Pete Davidson all made it into the song too, which has become a global anthem for getting over your ex. Go, girl!
8 Still Going Strong: Kylie Jenner And Travis Scott
Kylie Jenner moved on from her split with Tyga pretty quickly and was spotted with rapper Travis Scott only a few months later. But the couple seemed to fall in love very quickly, too and got their first set of matching butterfly tattoos after they’d only been dating for a short time.
They’ve stuck it out, though, and today they share baby Stormi, who lives with Kylie in her California mansion. Travis is said to frequently visit Kylie and Stormi, although his touring demands keep him from spending as much time with them as he’d like.
7 Broke Up: Britney Spears And Charlie Ebersol
A few months after splitting from boyfriend David Lucado, Britney Spears started dating Charlie Ebersol, a TV producer from a well-known Hollywood family. A source revealed that they met through mutual friends and were having a lot of fun hanging out together following Britney’s break up.
The singer even posted a snap of Charlie with her two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, to IG. Sadly, in June 2015, Britney and Charlie decided to call it quits. We’re not too upset for Britney, though, because she’s currently in a happy relationship with trainer Sam Asghari.
6 Still Going Strong: Alex Rodriguez And Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez has found love again with former MLB star Alex Rodriguez and we couldn’t be happier for her! “She seems excited,” a source told People. “He has been around her family and she really likes that he is a dad. She is aware, though, that he is a ladies’ man too and is being cautious. For now, it’s just fun.”
It didn’t stay just fun forever, though! After two years of dating the couple announced their engagement in early 2019! We can’t wait for this wedding!
5 Broke Up: Brooklyn Beckham And Chloe Grace Moretz
We were pretty shook when Brooklyn Beckham, the son of David and Victoria Beckham, and actress Chloe Grace Moretz decided to end their relationship in mid-2018. They were always private about their relationship, and we got the impression from the photos we saw of the two of them that were happy together.
Plus, Chloe sometimes gushed about Brooklyn in interviews, and back when he first created his Twitter account, the first person he followed was Chloe! They were totes adorable, but Brooklyn is now dating model Hana Cross.
4 Still Going Strong: Miley Cyrus And Liam Hemsworth
Although her brief romance with Patrick Schwarzenegger didn’t last, Miley Cyrus did rekindle things with her ex-fiancé Liam Hemsworth. The two took some time out from their busy lives and retreated to Malibu, where they fell back in love.
In late December of 2018, fans were surprised to learn that Miley and Liam had tied the knot in a private ceremony held at their home in Tennessee, just a short distance from Miley’s family home. The couple lost their Malibu mansion in the California wildfires before getting married—an event which they believe brought them closer together.
3 Still Going Strong: Gwyneth Paltrow And Brad Falchuk
We suppose that Gwyneth Paltrow is happy for her ex Chris Martin and his rumored new flame Dakota Johnson because things are going perfectly in her own love life too.
In September of 2018, the actress tied the knot with producer Brad Falchuk, at a lavish ceremony in the Hamptons. There were a number of A-listers in attendance, including Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden, Steven Spielberg, and Robert Downey Jr. As far as we know, the newlyweds are still happy and enjoying life as a married couple!
2 Still Going Strong: Hailey And Justin Bieber
While some celebrities remain engaged for years, Justin and Hailey Bieber got married only two months after getting engaged. We don’t have all the details of their September 2018 wedding, but we do know that they became husband and wife in a New York City courthouse.
It was confirmed for their millions of fans when Justin posted a photo to IG and captioned it “my wife,” and Hailey changed her last name on the social media platform from Baldwin to Bieber. The couple recently landed in trouble for a fake pregnancy announcement on April Fool’s Day, but they are still going strong!
1 Still Going Strong: Rose Leslie And Kit Harington
Rose Leslie and Kit Harington have to be one of our favorite couples of all time, so we couldn’t have been happier when they announced their engagement and got married in Scotland in June 2018. Many of their Game of Thrones co-stars attended the nuptials, as well as the after party which took place as Rose’s family’s castle.
We couldn’t think of a setting more fitting for Jon Snow and Ygritte! The two are still happy in love, and now that GoT has wrapped up, it looks like Kit might have a little more time to spend with his beautiful wife.
