Celebrity Splits of 2021: Stars Who Broke Up This Year

Heartbreak club. Not all celebrity couples got the fairy-tale ending they were hoping for in 2021, including Shia LaBeouf and Margaret Qualley.

Us Weekly confirmed on January 7 that the Even Stevens alum and the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actress had split after one month of dating.

The pair‚Äôs breakup came amid LaBeouf‚Äôs legal trouble with ex-girlfriend¬†FKA Twigs, who accused the actor in December 2020 of ‚Äúrelentless abuse‚ÄĚ while they were together. The¬†Peanut Butter Falcon¬†star said in a statement to¬†The New York Times¬†that ‚Äúmany of these allegations are not true‚ÄĚ but accepted ‚Äúaccountability‚ÄĚ for his past mistakes.

Us confirmed on January 18 that Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas had called it quits after dating less than a year. The Deep Water costars were first linked in March 2020 after meeting on the set of their upcoming film.

‚ÄúBen and Ana were so close to each other,‚ÄĚ a source told¬†Us¬†following the breakup. ‚ÄúThey have their issues, but still want to remain on good terms and keep a friendship.‚ÄĚ

Couples who met on reality TV shows also experienced heartache in 2021, with The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart winners Bri Stauss and Chris Watson announcing their split on January 19.

Love Island season 2 winners Justine Ndiba and Caleb Corprew separated the same month. Their breakup came three months after the show’s finale aired.

Alice Evans, meanwhile,¬†shocked many fans when she claimed in a since-deleted tweet on January 26 that her husband of 13 years,¬†Ioan Gruffudd, told her ‚Äúhe is to leave his family‚ÄĚ without any further explanation. The Titanic actor and Evans later shared a joint statement to Us, saying, ‚ÄúAs you can imagine, this is an incredibly difficult time for our family and we remain committed to our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy.‚ÄĚ

The Mentalist‚Äôs¬†Simon Baker¬†and¬†Rebecca Rigg¬†called it quits after 29 years of marriage in late January, saying in a joint statement that they ‚Äúremain close friends and our three children will always be the most important focus of our lives.‚ÄĚ

And after finishing her ‚Äúyear of health‚ÄĚ in December 2020,¬†Rebel Wilson¬†revealed via an Instagram post in February 2021 that she was single after dating¬†Jacob Busch¬†for¬†more than a year.

‚ÄúThey talked all throughout the holidays and had excellent communication, but then, all of a sudden, she got really quiet and broke up with him via text message about two or three weeks ago,‚ÄĚ a source exclusively told¬†Us¬†on February 4, confirming the breakup.
