If there is one thing to show you that fame and money don’t always guarantee happiness, it is the regular demise of celebrity couples all over the world! We love reading the rumours about their early courtship, we buy magazines that feature their lives together, but the thing that gets us most excited is when they break up and we get to dissect everything bit by bit!

Here are twenty-one celebrity couples who have split up in 2018.
