The Amount of Celebrity Couples Who’ve Ended It This Year (So Far) Is Soul-Crushing

All these breakups. Where's the love in 2016?

By Claire Downs

This year is looking to be the year of the single life. We’re only at the halfway point, but we’ve seen some wild, headline-grabbing breakups, as well as some shocking splits no one saw coming. You can’t help but feel a little less trustworthy in love when a star couple like Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama call things off after six solid years together. How are we supposed to recover when we’ve been blindsided by the breakups of Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris and Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik in the same week. While we dry our tears and say goodbye to couple names like Kyga, say hello to the newly single celebs of summer (and some who have already moved on)!
