7 Recent Celebrity Divorces You Didn’t See Coming


It’s an unfortunate truth that many marriages do end in divorce. Sometimes, a relationship simply dies out or grows in such a way that it isn’t a suitable situation for anyone involved. There are some cases in which the marriage ends on a positive, cordial note, and then there are those that end in a sudden blaze of fiery anger.

No matter the case behind the ending of the relationship, it can happen to anyone. These sad, unexpected celebrity divorces have shown that even the happiest of unions can fail.

Here are seven recent celebrity divorces that you didn’t see coming:

1. Adele & Simon Konecki – Divorce in April 2019

Divorce can be an intensely personal challenge for a person. As such, there are times when the former couple would rather leave the finer details far away from the spotlight. Grammy award winning artist Adele and former husband Simon Konecki took this route when announcing their split to the public.

The separation between Adele and Simon Konecki is one of the most recent celebrity divorces in this list. The news only occurred a few weeks ago. Since then, a representative for the singer addressed the occurrence on her behalf, saying, “Adele and her partner have separated. They are committed to raising their son together lovingly. As always, they ask for privacy. There will be no further comment.”

2. Anna Camp & Skylar Astin – Divorce in April 2019

Following their costarring roles on the set of Pitch Perfect, Anna Camp and Skyler Astin decided that marriage was the right choice for the couple to make. Unfortunately, the two called it quits after two solid years of being together. The couple put forward a joint statement on the ending of the relationship.

This recent celebrity divorce only happened within the past week. In their issued statement, the former couple declared: “We can confirm that we have decided to separate, and this decision was made mutually and amicably. We kindly ask for privacy as we navigate this transition.”

3. Khloe Kardashian & Tristan Thompson – Divorce in April 2019

While it would be nice to imagine that all marriages come to a natural and satisfying conclusion, that is unfortunately a rarity among divorces. In the case of Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson, however, there was anything but peace when it was revealed that an affair was happening behind the scenes.

This led to a recent celebrity divorce for the couple with little hope for a potentially repaired relationship. The affair in question happened between Thompson and Jordyn Woods, a close friend of Khloe’s sister, Kylie Jenner.

4. Andy Richter & Sarah Thyre – Divorce in April 2019

The life of a comedian is rarely as funny as their content, but Andy Richter has always upheld a very humourous outward appearance in public. However, this was not the case when the funny man recently took to Twitter to announce his imminent divorce from long time wife Sarah Thyre.

This separation happened in April, during a month that seemed very trendy for recent celebrity divorces. In his announcement, Andy Ritcher stated: “It is with sadness that Sarah and I announce that we have separated and have begun divorce proceedings,” said Richter in a tweet, “We are extremely proud of the life we’ve built together and shared with so many friends over the years, and even though our marriage has reached its completion we will always maintain a loving friendship and parenting partnership.” The couple had been together for over two decades.

5. Ryan Seacrest & Shayna Taylor – Divorce in February 2019

This is another recent celebrity divorce announcement that happened within the past few months, just following Valentine’s Day. Seacrest and Taylor are a fine example of a couple who simply were not compatible in the long run. After three years of marriage, the two decided that the relationship was no longer working, and decided to split amicably. However, they are said to still be on friendly terms with each other, and that’s great.

6. Jenna Dewan & Channing Tatum – Divorce in December 2018

This was one couple that went quite the distance together, so their recent celebrity divorce came as a blindside to their fans. The two first met on the set of their incredibly popular dance film Step Up way back in 2006. Three years later, the young couple decided to finally tie the knot in 2009.

This led to the two having a daughter in 2013. In the public eye, the two seemed to be going strong, but nearly nine years of marriage proved to dissolve the happiness of the relationship. In 2018, they released a divorce announcement that shocked quite a few people who were fans of the partnership.

7. Usher & Grace Miguel – Divorce in March 2018

Upon their first meeting in 2009, the award-winning singer and Miguel took to each other quite well. This meeting was hot on the heels of Usher’s previous divorce, allowing the two to begin dating long term.

The relationship worked so well that a proposal occurred in 2015, presumably at the peak of the partnership. However, it was not meant to be, as the couple eventually split in early 2018 after nearly a decade together.
