In the words of classic American movie president Thomas Whitmore: “Today, we celebrate, our Independence Day!”
That independence is especially true for a certain group of suddenly single ladies, who find themselves all alone this holiday.
From messy issues of infidelity and abuse to the simple realization that long-distance relationships are difficult, these love stories are now history.
Take a look back at the loves that have been lost this year in this RadarOnline.com gallery.
Tom Arnold & Ashley Groussman
Comedian Tom kicked off the new year by divorcing Ashley, his wife of ten years. They have two children, Quinn and Jax, and four dogs together. This was Tom’s fourth failed marriage. He was married to Roseanne Barr from 1990 but divorced in 1994.
Heather Locklear & Chris Heisser
Heather and her on-again, off-again fiance Chris broke up after a “never-ending” holiday fight that spilled into 2019. They reunited, only to get into a fight in April so massive, she decided to head back to rehab to learn how to distance herself for good from her high school sweetheart.
Demi Lovato & Henry Levy
Khloe Kardashian & Tristan Thompson
It was no happy Valentine’s Day for Khloe and Tristan. Radar was the first to report the couple had called it quits, after the basketballer and father of daughter True, admitted to cheating on Khloé with Jordyn Woods, her younger sister Kylie Jenner's best friend.
Wendy Williams & Kevin Hunter
Michelle Williams & Phil Elverum
Michelle and her indie rocker husband Phil called it quits in April, after just a few months together. “Michelle and Phil separated at the beginning of the year,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “It was an amicable split and they remain friends.”
Irina Shayk & Bradley Cooper
In early June, Bradley and Irina called it quits on their four-year relationship after months of speculation that the A Star Is Born actor was shacking up with co-star Lady Gaga behind Shayk’s back (which neither has confirmed). Cooper and Shayk began dating in 2015 and share one daughter, Lea De Seine.
Lindsay Shookus & Ben Affleck
On-again, off-again couple Ben and Lindsay look to be off again for good after their April breakup. The couple endured a tumultuous split in 2018 but were spotted back on in February. But according to reports, Jennifer Garner’s ex and the Saturday Night Live producer put an end to their relationship in order to “spend more time with their respective families.”
Kendall Jenner & Ben Simmons
Just days after talking about a possible marriage, Kendall split from her NBA star boyfriend Ben in May. According to reports, the baller was caught partying in Atlantic City, NJ, with friends earlier that month. At one point, he allegedly told his pals that he and the model had called it quits weeks ago.
Kate Beckinsale & Pete Davidson
Kate and Pete’s steamy relationship was over in April, just four months after it began. But what a wild ride it was. The Saturday Night Live funnyman and Underworld star were first spotted together at a Golden Globes after party in January. They weren’t shy about showing off their love, and were often spotted making out in public. The two reportedly split amicably, driven apart only by their long-distance romance.
Olivia Jade & Jackson Guthy
YouTube vlogger Olivia and model Jackson split in the aftermath of the college cheating scandal, in which Olivia's parents Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 to help get their daughter into USC. In the months following the scandal, Olivia stayed with Jackson before finding her own apartment. She’s reportedly now trying to rebuild her brand as an influencer.
Joey Fatone & Kelly Baldwin
Joey said bye, bye, bye to his wife of 15 years, Kelly, in June. The couple were high school sweethearts and wed in 2004. They have two daughters together. But allegations of infidelity have dogged the couple since 2007, when Joey was accused of having an affair with a fellow contestant on Dancing with the Stars.
Allison Williams & Ricky Van Veen
Allison and her husband Ricky called it quits at the end of June, after only four years of marriage. The duo first started dating in 2011 and later got engaged during a viewing party of The Bachelor before tying the knot in a ranch wedding in 2015.
Porsha Williams & Dennis McKinley
Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Porsha and Dennis split up in June, 8 months after their engagement, after both experienced problems in their relationship. Radar exclusively revealed the former couple had a blowout fight after she was hit with a $240,000 tax lien, which was later released. Although no longer together, Radar has exclusively learned the pair remain cordial and often spend time together “around the house” with their daughter, Pilar Jhena McKinley.
Pamela Anderson & Adil Rami
The former Baywatch babe had one of the messiest breakups of the year so far, after discovering that her soccer star boyfriend of two years, Adil Rami, was allegedly two-timing her and was still playing family with the mother of his two children.
Pamela wrote in a scathing Instagram post: “The last (more than) 2.years of my life have been a big lie. I was scammed, led to believe … we were in « big love »?. I’m devastated to find out in the last few days. That he was living a double life."
