Called It Quits: The Biggest Celebrity Breakups Of 2021

We already know some of our favorite celebs spent their quarantine time getting busy and having babies, but unfortunately, not all celebrity couples loved having more quality time together.

This year, we saw couples with decades of love behind them, and some that were just established months prior, crumble in front of our eyes. From Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to Meagan Good and DeVon Franklin, here are all the biggest celebrity breakups of 2021.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are undoubtedly the biggest celebrity breakup of the year, though Kanye’s pleas to get his wife back have elongated their split for almost the entire year.

Kim K filed for divorce from the rapper on February 19 after almost seven years of marriage. The pair, who started dating in 2012 and tied the knot in May 2014, are in agreement over joint legal and physical custody, and neither is contesting the prenup in place–but Ye has been very vocal about wanting Kardashian back, saying during his November Drink Champs interview that he’s yet to actually see divorce papers.

 

Quavo and Saweetie

In March, social media users began speculating that Quavo and Saweetie had split after the pair unfollowed each other on Instagram. Later that month, Saweetie confirmed the news on Twitter, pointing the finger at her ex.

“I’m single,” she wrote at the time. “I’ve endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character.”

 

Amber Rose and Alexander ‘AE’ Edwards

Amber Rose and the father of her second child Slash, Alexander ‘AE’ Edwards, called it quits this year after nearly three years of dating.

In August, the model took to Instagram to accuse her boyfriend of cheating with more than a dozen women, which AE admitted to soon thereafter. While he made light of the situation at the time, he posted an apology for breaking up his family months later, begging for Rose to get back with him. They’ve since been spotted together, sparking reconciliation rumors earlier this month.

 

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez

Jennifer Lopez and her fiancé, Alex Rodriguez, announced they were ending their engagement on April 15. The split came following rumors of infidelity on the former MLB star’s part.

“We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so. We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects,” they said in a joint statement to PEOPLE. “We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have is to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.”
