Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt

After an 18-year relationship, two movies together, and his stint in rehab in early 2015, Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt announced their breakup in September 2015. The couple never married and never decided to have children, which has been rumored to be one of the seemingly many causes of their breakup - Jennifer reportedly was open to the idea of starting a family, but she was (allegedly) too busy taking care of Jon. 

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger

Everything happened super fast for Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger: They met in 2013 after writing a song together and married just six months later. During their two-year marriage, Avril battled Lyme disease and Chad underwent vocal surgery. Apparently their struggles were too much, and they announced their split in September 2015.

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green

Nick and Olivia met at the Miss Universe 2013 pageant, where Nick was performing and co-presenting and Olivia was passing on her crown (she was Miss Universe 2012).

The two split in early June, and Nick has since been spotted with several other ladies, like his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.

Ariana Grande and Big Sean

Ariana and Big Sean ended their eight-month relationship in June, most likely due to their busy careers (as well as Ariana's on-stage PDA-filled performance with Justin Bieber during a tour). The ex-lovers did make quite the team in the music department, collaborating on Ariana's hit songs "Right There" and "Best Mistake," so hopefully they'll reunite at some point.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
