25+ Most Shocking Celebrity Breakups of 2022 So Far

2022 has not been a kind year for celebrity couples. Sadly, we have witnessed a large number of high-profile celebrity breakups this year. Some, who have been confirmed as dating, called it quits after years together while others who were seemingly happy in their marriage got divorce papers drafted. From the latest big breakup like Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson who decided to end their romance in August, to some celebrity couple breakups that you might have missed this year, we are taking a look back at all of the relationships that fell apart in 2022.

While we might have been rooting for many of these celebrity couples, divorces and separations are just a natural part of life. Things don’t work out every single time and that is okay! We in no way intend to shame these couples but we did want to take stock of the breakups that caused a stir in 2022. Now, let’s talk about the celebrity couples who decided to pull off of Lover’s Lane and part ways.

In July of 2022, Chelsea Handler and Jo Koy decided to breakup and the comedians both seemed pretty chill about it. For her part, Chelsea had only nice things when announcing that the relationship had run its course.

“This is not an ending. It’s another beginning, and it’s a comfort to know that I am still loved and love this man the way the sun loves the moon and the moon loves the sun,” Handler shared on Instagram. “YOUR PERSON IS COMING. So, please continue to root for both of us, because you never know what life will bring.”

Nayte added that “hearts are heavy, emotions are high, and we are dealing with this the best way we can.”

We have finally made it through all of the June celebrity breakups. What a downer of a month for celebrity romance! Now, let’s see who else decided to breakup.

This was a sad one, especially for General Hospital fans! After 23 years of marriage, Steve Burton announced he was ending his marriage to Sheree while accusing her of being pregnant with another man’s baby. In a statement posted in May on Instagram Stories, Steve wrote, “I wanted to clear something up. Sheree and I are separated. She recently announced that she’s expecting her fourth child. The child is not mine. We are still co-parenting our three beautiful kids. We would appreciate privacy at this time. Much luv, Steve.”

Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers

Shailene Woodley and Aaron Rodgers‘ relationship must have been a complicated one. The couple have had two breakups this year, but it looks like they’re officially calling it quits. First, they called off their engagement in February 2022, with a source telling Entertainment Tonight, “They tried to make their relationship work, but with busy careers in different industries, it was hard to see one another. The two have no animosity toward one another and plan to remain as friends.”

They then reunited for a brief time, but an E! News source said at the end of April 2022, “Shailene tried to give it another shot and was spending time with Aaron again. She quickly saw that everything was on his terms and nothing was going to change. There was no reason to continue and she’s done with it again.”

Ali Wong and Justin Hakuta

Of all the celebrity breakups this year, we did not see this one coming! Ali Wong and Justin Hakuta confirmed their divorce after eight years of marriage in April 2022, with a source telling People, “It’s amicable and they will continue to co-parent lovingly.” Considering that Wong often talked about her husband in her stand-up comedy routines, we all felt like we know him and to an extent, the status of their relationship. That made this one such a heartbreaker!

Andrew Garfield and Alyssa Miller

Andrew and Alyssa split up in early April 2022 after just a few months of dating, with a source telling Entertainment Tonight, “Their work commitments and schedules made it hard for them to continue their relationship.

Natasha Lyonne and Fred Armisen

Natasha Lyonne confirmed that she and Fred Armisen ended their long-term relationship because she wanted a swimming pool and he didn’t. Weirder reasons to break up are out there, okay!

“I honestly think we broke up because I wanted a swimming pool,” Natasha told the Hollywood Reporter in April 2022. “We love each other just about as much as two people can love each other and we’re still talking all the time, but Freddy doesn’t like a swimming pool.”

Kenan Thompson and Christina Evangeline

Another long-term marriage that ended this year, Kenan Thompson and his wife Christina Evangeline, broke up in April 2022 after 15 years of being together.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel bucked tradition when it came to her wedding gown for her 2012 marriage to Justin Timberlake. Instead of going with a white gown, the actor chose to walk down the aisle in a pink custom Giambattista Valli Haute Couture dress. That decision alone cost the pair $100,000 and that’s just a small amount when compared to the wedding’s total cost of $6.5 million.

Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto
