Celebrity Breakups of 2015: The Year of the Split!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Plenty of celebrities broke up in 2015, as they do every year.

But this year ... this was a year that produced some truly noteworthy splits. For a time, it was like you couldn't go a week without one.

Heck, it wasn't even like that, it was that. It was incredible.

Some couples were more high-profile than others, of course, and some romances felt destined to last forever while others ... did not.

But man alive, this year was a doozy. Let's take a look back ...

1. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner announced they were divorcing nearly 10 years after they got married. Rumors of their split have surfaced for months and were eventually confirmed ... along with a firestorm of rumors that Ben slept with family nanny Christine Ounouzian.

2. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert
This one was pretty epic. Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert broke up after four years of marriage - and their divorce was already final by the time they announced it. Short and sweet, right? Wrong. Myriad cheating allegations and no small amount of bitterness followed, along with his abrupt rebound romance with ...

3. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale were married for 13 years before parting ways in August 2015. Almost immediately, she took up with Blake Shelton while Gavin, like Ben Affleck, was linked to the nanny. Note to female celebrities: Don't hire attractive 25-year-old nannies. Or just divorce these a-- hats now if you're particularly worried about this.

4. Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards

So much for this sweet kiss. Zayn broke Perrie's heart and called off their engaged in July ... right around the time he broke up with One Direction no less. He's since moved on with Gigi Hadid. Will he upgrade musically as well? (Sorry Perrie.)

5. Big Sean and Ariana Grande

Big Sean and Ariana Grande
We admit being a little sad about this one. The public declarations of love after their friendship led to so much more from mid-2014 to mid-2015 gave us real hope for these two ... but the breakup was swift and a little contentious. Gotta "Focus" on careers? We're not buying it.

6. Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown

Karrueche Tran and Chris Brown
Yes, they split up before, but it looks like this one is for good. That's what happens when you're revealed to be the father of a nine-month old, unbeknownst to your "bae." Vintage Chris Brown.
