If you thought your love life was on the rocks this year, take comfort that it wasn’t turned into major headlines, memes, and placed under constant internet scrutiny
psquare (Peter, Paul & Jude Okoye)
And then musical duo Psquare threatened fans with a breakup. The pop group had its biggest challenge when Peter Okoye said he wanted out of the group because of manager Jude Okoye. This new info saw fans crying their eyes out so that the group won’t split. After much pressure Peter, Paul and Jude Okoye agreed to stop attacking each other publicly.
Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz
On April 28, 2016, Tee Billz blasted his wife Tiwa Savage on his Instagram page and accused her of sleeping with her label mates Dr. Sid, Don Jazzy and Nigerian pop legend 2face Idibia.
A day later Pulse exclusively obtained a Tiwa Savage interview where she spoke explicitly about her damaged marriage with Tee Billz.
Toyin Aimakhun and Seun Ebgegbe
Toyin Aimakhu and Seun Egbegbe get featured again. Their breakup was even messier than her marital drama. The two were engaged in a war of words on social media and in several interviews. Egbegbe was once reported saying he would end her career in the movie industry.
Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
All right, let’s get this one out of the way. In perhaps the most shocking and devastating breakup announcement of 2016, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September after two years of marriage and 12 years together. Shortly after the news dropped, the internet exploded with Jennifer Aniston memes, and even Adele commented on Brangelina’s breakup at her own concert. She was right: It really is the end of an era.
Rihanna and Drake
To be honest, they’ve never been official-official, but Drake did confess during the VMAs that he’d been in love with Rihanna since he was 22. Though Drizzy’s dad says they’re just friends, the pair got matching shark tattoos shortly after the VMAs which is such a couple thing to do. However, it’s very possible that their whirlwind romance (if it ever existed) is already over
Taylor Swift And Calvin Harris
Remember when this musical duo had one of the most talked-about romances of 2015? Well, they broke up in June after a 15-month relationship, and it’s safe to say things definitely didn’t end well. Harris told British GQ this year that all hell broke loose when they called it quit, especially when you consider how Swift had helped pen his smash single This Is What You Came For. Harris went on to rant on Twitter in a series of now (mostly) deleted tweets about the way things went down.
Lady Gaga And Taylor Kinney
The couple called off their engagement in July, but after everyone on the internet had a day to mourn, Gaga explained the situation on Instagram: It’s just a break. âWe are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared, she wrote. Please root us on. Rooting for you in 2017, guys
Tom Hiddleston And Taylor swift
After her split from Calvin Harris, Swift emerged with some seriously cuddly beach pics with apparent new beau Hiddleston. He even told MTV News back in July that he and Swift were indeed together and very happy. But after a hot minute of dancing at Selena Gomez’s concert and inspiring a horde of hilarious Hiddleswift memes, their relationship ended after just barely beginning
Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Here’s a quick recap of this tumultuous relationship: They married in 2009 after a month of dating, and Khloe initially filed for divorce back in December 2013 but stopped it after Odom overdosed in Nevada in late 2015. However, Khloe filed for divorce (again) in May, citing irreconcilable differences, despite the fact that she doesn’t believe in divorce. The papers were finally finalized just a few days ago.
