9 Loud Celebrities Breaks-Up of 2023 That Proves Love Is Not for Eternity

8 months ago

As we find ourselves well into the year 2023, it’s become evident that this year has been marked by a series of both unexpected and anticipated celebrity breakups. The year commenced with the unexpected separation of a longtime couple, while others had barely stepped into their second year of marriage.

1. Sophia Bush and Grant Hughes

Marriage timeline: 2022-2023.
Number of children: 0.

On August 4, Sophia Bush initiated divorce proceedings from Grant Hughes, just 13 months into their marriage. A reliable source shared: “Sophia and Grant had been friends for a decade. They are still actively involved in their nonprofit organization and maintain a strong friendship.” This revelation came approximately seven weeks following Sophia’s heartfelt Instagram post commemorating their wedding anniversary.

2. Britney Spears and Sam Asghari

Marriage timeline: 2022-2023.
Number of children: 0.

Despite being married for only one year, Britney and Sam had been together since 2016. At the time, Sam was hired to play a role in the pop star’s music video Slumber Party and won over her with his charm. The couple seemed perfect for each other as they were supportive of each other’s aspirations and were practically glued to each other. Unfortunately, in 2023 cracks started to show and Asghari moved out after accusing Spears of infidelity.

3. Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth

Marriage timeline: 2011-2023.
Number of children: 1.

This former couple had a whirlwind romance back in the day: they were reported dating in 2010 and by March 2011 they officially tied the knot. Then, just a year and a half after saying ’I do’, they welcomed their son, Tennessee James.

All signs were pointing to Reese and Jim being soulmates, but no relationship is ever that simple. Witherspoon and Toth announced a mutual separation in March 2023. One rumored reason for the divorce includes Reese saying Jim wasn’t the person she married anymore.

4. Sofía Vergara and Joe Manganiello

Marriage timeline: 2015-2023.
Number of children: 0

Sofía was Joe’s dream woman before the couple even got together. His crush became a reality in 2014, and a year later Manganiello officially called Vergara his wife. They seemed to be the ultimate Hollywood couple — they had the looks and the chemistry.

But, the truth came out in 2023 when Joe and Sofía became distant due to having different interests. Vergara is drawn to the lavish Hollywood lifestyle, while Joe enjoys video games and quieter life in general.

5. Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millipied.

Marriage timeline: 2012-2023.
Number of children: 2.

Natalie and Benjamin met in a classic Hollywood fashion — on the set of Black Swan, a movie that brought Portman the Best Actress Oscar. They went on to have two children: son Aleph and daughter Amalia, born in 2011 and 2017, respectively. In summer of 2023, reports came out that Millipied was unfaithful, which led to the separation.

6. Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas

Marriage timeline: 2019-2023.
Number of children: 2.

The Game of Thrones star was only 23 when she got hitched with Joe Jonas, who was 30 at the time. But age didn’t seem to matter as the couple decided to start a family right away. Jonas and Turner share two daughters together, born in 2020 and 2022.

Unfortunately, 2023 brought a highly publicized separation for the couple. Jonas was the one who filed for the divorce, and the reasons are countless, as multiple sources report. It’ll be a while until the dust settles, and we learn what really happened between the two, if ever.

7. Shannen Doherty and Kurt Iswarienko

Marriage timeline: 2011-2023.
Number of children: 0.

Iswarienko became Doherty’s third shot at a marriage. Previously, the Charmed star was married twice: to Ashley Hamilton from 1993 to 1994 and to Rick Salomon from 2002 to 2003. Despite the two other unions lasting less than a year, Shannen and Kurt were going strong and, after they crossed a 10-year line, seemed like this was it for the actress. Allegedly, Iswarienko was unfaithful to Doherty, which forced her to seek divorce.

8. Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness

Marriage timeline: 1996-2023.
Number of children: 2.

And now for the couple that shocked us the most. In September 2023, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness revealed that they were getting a divorce to “pursue individual growth.” After being together for 27 and sharing two adopted children, this became a big hit for all their fans.

9. Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner

Marriage timeline: 2004-2023.
Number of children: 3.

One more couple with a truly long family story decided to go apart. Christine Baumgartner has officially filed for divorce from Kevin Costner after a marriage lasting 18 years.

In an official statement, Costner’s representative conveyed, that regrettably, Mr. Costner finds himself in a situation beyond his control, necessitating his involvement in a divorce proceeding.

Breakups are often seen as the end of a romantic relationship, marked by pain, sadness, and a sense of finality. However, the reality is more complex, as some couples can realize they made a mistake and do find their way back to one another. However, it’s important to remember that not all relationships are meant to be revived, and sometimes, breakups are necessary for the personal growth and happiness of both individuals.
