The most devastating celebrity breakups in 2020

Last year saw several celebrity breakups that hit us hard. Michelle Williams and Phil Elverum ended their marriage. Lady Gaga and Christian Carino called off an engagement. Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson split after five years. And Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth concluded a short marriage but a very long relationship.

Sadly for some of us who believe in celebrity love , the disappointments keep coming again in 2020. There’s too much trouble in paradise, or should we say ”CelebVille” and we can’t help but wonder why their relationships cannot be as perfect as their lifestyle.

Check out some of the most heartbreaking breakups we’ve witnessed this year below:

According to Us Weekly, Rihanna and her billionaire boyfriend of three years, Hassan Jameel, have ended their relationship. People later published a report claiming the pair broke up because “they were not a good match.” A source added to the outlet, “Their lives were too different and it was hard to maintain a relationship.” The two were first linked in June 2017, and RiRi kept much of their relationship out of the spotlight. She did, however, open up about Jameel last summer, telling Interview that “of course” she was in love.
