In early January 2021, People reported that the "High Fidelity" star filed for divorce from Glusman on December 23.

It's unclear when Kravitz and Glusman started dating, but the actress told British Vogue that she met him through a mutual friend. They were first photographed holding hands together in 2016. Two years later, while speaking to Rolling Stone, Kravitz revealed that they got engaged.

Glusman told Mr Porter that he proposed to Kravitz while wearing a "Friends" T-shirt and sweatpants.

The couple wed in Paris on June 29, 2019. They were joined at the celebration by the bride's father Lenny Kravitz; her mother, Lisa Bonet; Jason Momoa, who married Bonet in 2017 after being together for several years; Momoa's two kids with Bonet named Lola and Nakoa-Wolf; and Kravitz's "Big Little Lies" costars.

Shia LaBeouf and Margaret Qualley reportedly split after a brief romance.

It's unclear when they started dating, but the two actors played love interests in the NSFW short film titled "Love Me Like You Hate Me" (released in October 2020). The short film functioned as a music video for a song by Rainey Qualley, Margaret's sister who goes by the moniker Rainsford.

Two months after the video was released, LaBeouf and Qualley were photographed kissing at an airport in California. The sighting came days after musician FKA Twigs, who previously dated LaBeouf, filed a lawsuit against the "Honey Boy" star and accused him of abuse. LaBeouf has since denied the musician's allegations.

LaBeouf and Qualley continued to show PDA while stepping out together in the weeks that followed.

In early January 2021, a source told People that they split because they were "in different places in their lives" and Qualley had received backlash for dating the Disney Channel alum amid FKA Twigs' allegations.

Qualley also publicly voiced support of FKA Twigs on her Instagram story in February.

Former Destiny's Child member LeToya Luckett and husband Tommicus Walker split months after welcoming their second child together.

"After very prayerful consideration, Tommicus and I have decided to get a divorce," Luckett wrote in a statement shared on Instagram in January. "It is my deepest desire for us to be loving coparents and keep a peaceful environment out of respect for our children."

The singer added: "Please understand our need for privacy. Thank you in advance for your prayers, support & space to heal as we tread through this challenging time."

Luckett and Walker got married in December 2017 and welcomed their first child together, daughter Gianna Iman, in January 2019. Their second child, son Tysun Wolf Walker was born on September 14, 2020 weighing 9 pounds, 7 ounces.

Multiple outlets, including People and E! News reported the breakup in January 2021. According to a source that spoke to People, de Armas ended the relationship.

The two stars met while filming the upcoming psychological thriller "Deep Water" in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 2019. They also visited Cuba, de Armas' home country, together after filming wrapped.

Throughout the pandemic, they were frequently photographed while going on walks together in Los Angeles. The actress also spent time with Affleck's kids that he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner.

De Armas made their relationship Instagram official when she posted a photo of the "Justice League" star with his arms around her waist, celebrating her 32nd birthday.

After their breakup was revealed, paparazzi spotted a life-size cutout of de Armas being thrown in Affleck's trash bin. The same one was previously seen on Affleck's lawn in June 2020, seemingly as part of a prank that his kids pulled on him.

The couple clicked from their first meeting on season 16 of the show and Crawley gave Moss the first impression rose. They fell in love throughout the season and got engaged.

On January 19, 2021, Moss revealed that they ended their relationship.

"I wanted [to] share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways," he shared in an Instagram post that has since been deleted. "We appreciate the love and support we've received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time."

Moss continued: "We strongly believe in leading with love and always remaining true to oneself — something our families have taught and instilled in us throughout our lives. We only hope the best things for one another."

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Crawley wrote: "I was made aware of a 'mutual' statement at the same time you all were, so I've needed some time to really digest this.

"Speaking for myself, my intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is I am crushed," she added, explaining that she's "still trying to process this."

Moss later opened up about the breakup on his Instagram story and said, "here's no one person to blame in this situation."

The following month they were spotted holding hands in Florida, fueling speculation that they got back together.

By March 2021, Crawley and Moss reconciled, resumed posting about each other on social media, and were seen holding hands in NYC.

Moore and Daly tied the knot in St. Lucia in 2017 and welcomed daughter Brooklyn in late 2018. They announced their first breakup in September 2019.

In January, Evans posted a now-deleted tweet and said that Gruffudd is leaving their family.

"Sad news. My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week," she wrote. "Me and our young daughters girls are very confused and sad. We haven't been given a reason except that he 'no longer loves me.' I'm so sorry."

Evans and Gruffudd met on the set of the 2000 movie "102 Dalmations," wed seven years later, and welcomed two daughters named Ella and Elsie.

The following month, Evans thanked followers for their support.

"I never thought this would happen to us," she wrote on Instagram. "I am still fighting against it, because I love our kids, and I still love him, but something has happened inside his head and whatever it is, I don't see him coming back to us."

She added: "The pain is excruciating but I am stronger than an ox, and though I weep all day when my kids aren't looking, at night I add up figures and plan futures for us and you know what? I will do those two angels right if it's all I ever do."

In early March, People and The Blast reported that Gruffudd filed for divorce from the "Vampire Diaries" alum.

The breakup was first revealed by TMZ in January.

In a joint statement shared with People, Page and Portner revealed that they had been separated for months.

"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce following our separation last summer," they said. "We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends."

Portner and Page first met via Instagram in 2017 and began dating shortly after. Page shocked fans in early 2018 when they revealed their surprise wedding to Portner.

"Can't believe I get to call this extraordinary woman my wife," Page wrote on Instagram at the time, sharing black-and-white photos of the pair.

Wilson shared the news with fans when she posted a photo of herself on Instagram and referred to herself as a "single girl" in the caption.

The actress previously confirmed their relationship on Instagram in September 2020 by sharing a photo of them together before heading on a plane. According to People, they met through a mutual friend and their relationship blossomed when Wilson spent time in the US.

Shortly after revealing their relationship on Instagram, Busch accompanied Wilson to the Monte-Carlo Gala for Planetary Health in Monaco, where they posed together on the red carpet.

In November 2020, Wilson spoke about her fitness transformation and her relationship with Busch during an interview with E! News.

The Australian actress said that she "actually dated Jacob when I was at my heaviest as well. So, it's not like I suddenly lost weight, and then you're like, 'Oh, you get a hot boyfriend' — that's not how it works."

"This guy liked me at 100 kilos and now 75 kilos," she said. "I just want to clear out that. There's something really comforting in that to me because you're like, oh, it wasn't necessarily of what my body type was. He really likes me for me."

The couple began dating in 2017 and accompanied each other to awards shows and other red carpet events.

While living on separate coasts during the pandemic, Cruz opened up about the challenges of long-distance relationships during an Instagram live in May 2020.

E! News reported the breakup in February 2021. The publication also reported that Benson initiated the split.

"Ashley didn't like the way he was acting around her," a source said. "The vibe has just been off. She told him that it's over."

The two stars previously teamed up for a cover of Radiohead's "Creep" that was released in April 2020. They were romantically linked the following month after a video circulated that showed them kissing. The video came shortly after it was revealed that Benson and girlfriend Cara Delevingne split after almost two years together.

In response, Delevingne posted a message on her Instagram story asking fans not to jump to conclusions about her previous relationship with Benson.

"It's more important now than ever to spread love, not hate," she said. "To everyone hating on @ashleybenson please stop. You don't know the truth, only her and I do and that's exactly how it should be."

In the months that followed, Benson and G-Eazy continued to step out together and even attended the wedding of Shaylene Benson, the "Her Smell" star's sister.

Their split was reported by E! News in February 2021.

The two stars met on season 29 of "Dancing With the Stars," though they weren't paired with each other.

They went Instagram official in December, the month that Motsepe met Stause's family. The pair also spent Valentine's Day together and Stause called Motsepe a "lovable, likable guy" during an interview on Nick Viall's podcast.

After the breakup, Stause accused the dancer of "playing the victim."

On her Instagram story, she posted screenshots of articles about the split, including one that featured a quote from an anonymous source that read: "Keo is heartbroken. He enjoyed his time with Chrishell and was 100 percent in it... He's had a tough time with his mom's passing, but he really wanted to make his relationship with Chrishell last."

"I TRULY wanted to keep this drama free, but playing the victim and bringing your mom into it is a step too far for me," she wrote. "Taking the high road is overrated sometimes!! I was also 100% in it as well, until revelations told to me recently have made me question if you could even order a coffee without the lying."

"He's now in Miami getting ready for baseball season, and she's filming her movie in the Dominican Republic," the source told Page Six.

The breakup was also confirmed by TMZ, E! News, and People. A source told People that the split "has been a long time coming" for the two stars.

The following day, the couple shared a joint statement with People and said: "We are working through some things."

An anonymous source also told the publication that "they never officially broke up and talked about it but are still together. They hit a rough patch. But were not broken up."

Breakup speculation reemerged in April 2021 when Lopez posted a series of photos on Instagram sans her engagement ring.

Lopez and Rodriguez first met at a baseball game in 2005 and reconnected in 2016. They started dating in February 2017 and Lopez said that she knew Rodriguez was the one "probably like a year in."

Lopez and Rodriguez got engaged while on vacation in the Bahamas on March 9, 2019. The couple went on to gush about each other on social media and talk about their similarities during interviews.

In an Elle cover story released in January 2021, Lopez said that they planned to wed in Italy in 2020 but the event was postponed twice.

Speaking to Allure for a March 2021 cover story, Lopez said that the pandemic gave the couple a chance to "work on ourselves," which included doing therapy.

"I think it was really helpful for us in our relationship," the "Dinero" singer said.

In early February, people speculated that "Southern Charm" star Madison LeCroy and Rodriguez were having an affair.

LeCroy told Page Six that they had never met in person but spoke over the phone. An unnamed source close to Rodriguez told the New York Post that Rodriguez didn't know the reality TV star and "definitely didn't hook up with her."

During the "After the Final Rose" special (which aired in March 2021), James revealed that he ended his relationship with Kirkconnell after photos emerged of the graphic designer at a plantation-themed fraternity party in 2018.

Kirkconnell previously apologized for her racist actions and admitted that she "was wrong."

"When I questioned our relationship, it was in the context of you not fully understanding my Blackness, and what it means to be a Black man in America, and what it would mean for our kids," James told Kirkconnell during the special episode. "It broke my heart."

"I knew that I had to take a step back for you to put in the work you need to do, and that's something you need to do on your own," he added.

Fans speculated that the couple got back together after they were seen in NYC in April 2021, but an anonymous source told People that they're "just friends."

Her post came shortly after the "212" musician spoke out about her and Ripps' widely publicized sale of their audio sex tape as an NFT, or non-fungible token. Banks said that she initially didn't want to make the tape and it led to problems in their relationship.

It's unclear when Banks and the artist began dating, but they announced their engagement on the rapper's Instagram on February 21.

Saweetie revealed the breakup on Twitter in March, accusing Quavo of infidelity.

"I'm single," she wrote. "I've endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character. Presents don't band-aid scars and the love isn't real when the intimacy is given to other women."

In an additional tweet, the singer-songwriter said, "I emotionally checked out a long time ago and have walked away with a deep sense of peace and freedom. Excited for this new chapter of elevation."

Quavo appeared to address Saweetie's comments on his Twitter, saying that he felt "the need to address this so there are no false narratives."

"I had love for you and disappointed you did all that," he wrote. "You are not the woman I thought you were. I wish you nothing but the best."

In response, Saweetie quoted the second tweet and said, "Take care."

The couple began communicating in 2018 after Quavo slid into her DMs. They detailed their romance, including their first date in Georgia that year, in a 2020 interview for GQ.

The actress made their relationship Instagram official in September 2020 when she posted a selfie of the couple with the caption, "That long-distance kind of love," referring to her time spent in Vancouver filming "Riverdale."

The following month, she posted a tribute for Vaughan with the caption, "you just had to be a scorpio huh. love you birthday boi."

In February 2021, The Daily Telegraph reported that the pair split. Australian radio host Kyle Sandilands also said that Efron personally told him about his breakup. Sandilands said they were together "a lot longer than people realize."

The couple seemingly started dating in 2020. But E! News pointed out a comment shared on what appears to be Valladares' Instagram account, which indicates that they were dating long before that.

Kramer announced the news in April, writing on Instagram: "'It's time.' As I try to make sense of a reality I never wanted to believe could be possible again, those words have now become a reality."

The on-again, off-again couple wed in May 2015 and welcomed two kids together: daughter Jolie Rae Caussin and son Jace Joseph Caussin. Kramer said that she did what she could to salvage their relationship.

"I've fought y'all," she said. "I've loved hard. I've forgiven. I've put the work in. I've given everything I have, and now I have nothing else to give."

"Please know that I still believe wholeheartedly in marriage, love, and rebuilding. I just can't fight any longer. It's time to heal," she added.

It's unclear how the two stars met, but both starred on shows based on characters from the Archie Comics — Hale on the short-lived series "Katy Keene" and Ulrich on "Riverdale," which he exited early in season five because he got "bored creatively."
