While breaking up with a partner can be the best thing for somebody, it can also be devastating and painful. In addition to missing that person and dealing with all the issues they might have left behind, there’s also the thoughts that tend to haunt people who have just gotten out of relationships: What if I never meet anyone else? Moving on might seem impossible in the beginning, but it’s always possible, no matter how meaningful the relationship was. For some encouragement and reassurance, look to all the celebrities who successfully moved on from their exes in 2018!
Moving on as a celebrity is arguably even more difficult, since there’s the added pressure of the cameras following every move. But still, these 25 stars managed to start things up with new flames. Some of them broke up with their exes quite a while ago, and some basically bounced from one relationship to the other. And while some have been open about the new and exciting things happening in their love lives, others have tried to keep the details on the down-low.
Keep reading to find out which stars are moving on after breaking up with their ex.
It’s hard to keep up with the dating life of Kendall Jenner, since the model mostly likes to keep that part of her life private. In the past, she’s been linked to Jordan Clarkson from the Lakers, ASAP Rocky, and Blake Griffin from the LA Clippers. But in 2018 she moved on from those past flings and reportedly began dating NBA star Ben Simmons. Older sister Khloe seemed to confirm it on Twitter, referring to Simmons as Kendall’s man.
In 2018, we’ve been lucky enough to witness a real-life Riverdale romance between Camila Mendes and Charles Melton! After a few weeks of rumors and speculation by fans, Mendes confirmed the relationship on her Instagram. Previously in 2018, Mendes dated her childhood friend Victor Houston, who she spent her 24th birthday in the Hamptons with. People confirmed their relationship in June. It only lasted a few months, though. By Thanksgiving, Melton was joining Mendes’s family in Miami for the holiday.
Earlier this year, Emma Watson was connected to Glee star Chord Overstreet. An insider claimed that they’d been dating for a little while by March, and had met through mutual friends.

However, in mid-October, photos emerged of Watson kissing Brendan Wallace, the CEO and co-founder of Cabify, while on a vacation in Mexico.
After her marriage to Seal ended in 2012, Keidi Klum went on to date her bodyguard Martin Kirsten until 2014 and art curator Vito Schnabel until 2017.

A while after splitting from former boyfriend Darren Aronofsky, Jennifer Lawrence started things up with Cooke Maroney, who’s not a celebrity. Well, not yet, anyway. By June, Lawrence had been dating the director of a New York City art gallery for a few weeks. It’s been reported that her best friend, Laura Simpson, introduced the two, who hit it off. Since then, they’ve been photographed on dates in New York City and Paris, and have attended a few hockey games together.
In 2017, the engagement between Robert Pattinson and FKA Twigs was called off. But the actor seems to have found love again in 2018 with model-actress Suki Waterhouse.

Later in November, it was reported that the couple were planning on moving in together. “They really want to get a place in London so they can spend more time together,” a source claimed.

Another couple who found each other in 2018 are Jack Antonoff and Carlotta Kohl. Antonoff was linked to Kohl in January, the same month news broke that he had split from girlfriend of five years, Lena Dunham.

Brooklyn Beckham and Chloë Grace Moretz were in an off-again-on-again relationship for a number of years, but it seems like that’s all in the past.

Before he was linked to Panterra, Beckham was also photographed kissing Lexi Wood, a model for Playboy, and was spotted with model Meredith Mickelson at Coachella.
It looks like Beckham’s not the only one to have moved on following his April split from Moretz. The actress was spotted hanging out with Dylan O’Brien in August, sparking rumors of a possible romance. According to People, the two are dating. An old video has even emerged of O’Brien confessing his feelings for Moretz back in 2011 on the red carpet for the MTV Movie Awards.
Four years after her split from singer Robin Thicke, it looks like Paula Patton has fallen back in love.

In 2018, actress Olivia Munn moved on from her 2017 split from Aaron Rodgers with Alex Gonzalez. Photos were published in late March by Us Weekly of the two running errand together in Los Angeles.

Their relationship may have been tumultuous, but Diddy and Cassie were involved for a whole decade.

In her birthday speech, Rose revealed how thankful she is for her new relationship.
The world was devastated when Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan called it quits early in 2018, after being married for nine years.

He was linked to British pop star Jessie J after he was seen attending several of the shows on the American leg of her tour. He even brought daughter with Dewan, Everly, to Jessie’s Los Angeles show.
It looks like Dewan has moved on as well. She went public with her new boyfriend, Steve Kazee, in late October, and the pair don’t hold back on the PDAs. Reportedly, the two had already been dating for a few months at the time. Is Kazee intimidated by Dewan’s famous ex? We don’t think so. The Tony-winning actor has a few high-profile exes of his own, including pop star Christina Perri and Broadway star Megan Hilty.
Jennifer Garner claimed in an interview that she’s not interested in dating following her split from Ben Affleck, and it looks like that could be because she’s already involved with someone. In October, it was revealed that the actress has been dating businessman John Miller. The two were spotted together on a date in Los Angeles days after Garner’s divorce was finalized. Though Miller isn’t an actor, he does have a few things in common with Garner, including the fact that he has kids.

The split between Chris Pratt and Anna Faris was another one that left us feeling shattered. But it seems like Pratt has moved on with Katherine Schwarzenegger, the elder daughter of actor and politician Arnold Schwarzenegger. Rumors began circulated after they were photographed on a series of dates in Los Angeles. A source told Us Weekly that “they’ll be engaged soon” as things are pretty serious between them. While nothing’s been confirmed, the pair haven’t been shy on the PDA front.
We still can’t believe Lily-Rose Depp is all grown up! She and Kings co-star Timothée Chalamet seemed to confirm the rumors that they’re a couple when they kissed in New York City in October after enjoying fried chicken and a walk in the rain.
