If 2016 was a death parade of celebrities, then 2017 can be considered a terrible year for romance and love. Here are 4 of the saddest celebrity splits that broke a million hearts, dashed their fan’s hopes and here’s to still hoping for a fairytale reunion and happy ending. But hey, don’t get your hopes up.
Here is a list of 4 of the saddest and most unanticipated breakups of 2017. Shed a few more tears for the couples we loved, and their love’s labor now lost. Here’s to the glitzy splits of Hollywood.
1. Chriss Pratt and Anna Faris
Fans were worst hit when they witnessed their most favourite Hollywood couple breakup for good over scandals, rumours and family issues. From braiding Anna’s blonde tresses on TV to getting involved in a rumored affair with co-star and actor Jennifer Lawrence, their fairytale relationship and eight-year-old marriage witnessed all kinds of scandalous and matrimonial hardships before finally giving in and crumbling apart. While Anna wanted a bigger family with a few more kids, Pratt craved for carving himself a niche in Hollywood with blockbusters like Jurassic Park, Avengers and Guardians of Galaxy in his hat. Later on, when rumors of a romantic liaison between Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence started spreading like wildfire, Anna began to feel insecure of their marriage which gradually fell apart.
2. Robert Pattinson and Tahliah Barnett (FKA Twigs)
The once inseparable couple, of three years, has now drifted apart from each other. Though the feelings are still there, the sparkling, high-school vampire has called off his engagement with his fiancée Tahliah Barnett possibly because neither had any time for each other owing to building their respective careers.
3. Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor
Seventeen-year old marriages can only end if it is Hollywood. Be it a conflict between building a family and carving out a career or domestic issues or the fact that Stiller is very dark and moody (to which he admitted himself), the reason or reasons were enough to drive a wedge between one of the strongest couples of Hollywood. For those who believe that relationships forged between Hollywood celebrities are as strong and natural as ordinary relationships, the Stiller-Taylor split up was a shattering blow.
4. Fergie and Dushamel
This is another Hollywood relationship that ended due to conflict of priorities. While Dushamel is a family-man, a loving dad who wants to make every effort on building his family and raising his four-year-old son, Fergie is focused on her career more than ever. With music tours and new music, Fergie has no time for ordinary, day-to-day family life and love. The thirteen-year-old couple from two different worlds split up once they realized that a relationship can never happen nor last between two people so unlike-minded and two worlds that never seem to collide. However there is no bad blood between the two, united in parenting their son Axl.
It is sad how they choose career over love instead of a balanced blend between the two. But if career is the reason they cite to the media and their fans, the real reasons and bad blood remain undisclosed and private.
