Relationships are never easy. That seems doubly true in Hollywood, where A-list stars’ hectic schedules keep them traveling from place to place, and settling down can be tricky. Of course, some celebrity romances seem destined to last no matter the obstacle, but other celebrity couples like Scott Disick and Sofia Richie, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green, and other star couples have called it quits so far this year.
We’ve seen a few marriages come to an end — screenwriter Lena Waithe and now ex-wife Alana Mayo were only married for a few months before parting ways and Pamela Anderson and Jon Peters lasted only 12 days.
Whenever long-term Hollywood couples break up, our biggest concern is always about their kids — a tricky situation for any parents to navigate, but especially when you’re doing it in the public eye.
