The year 2015 saw several celebrity break-ups and make ups in Hollywood. Interestingly, many of these celebs refused to acknowledge their relationships in spite of being seen together regularly.
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green
The duo, who have two children together, broke up after five years of marriage. Earlier in the year, Megan Fox was spotted without her wedding ring. In his divorce plea, Green asked for Fox for financial aid as well as the joint custody of their kids.
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
The couple filed for divorce in August, after 13 years of marriage. They have three sons together. While filing papers to end their marriage in a California, USA, court, Gwen Stefani cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. Some reports claim that Gavin Rossdale was having an affair with their nanny, Mindy Mann.
Charlize Theron and Sean Penn
Charlize Theron and Sean Penn started dating in December 2013, after being friends for several years. They got engaged in December 2014 on a trip to France. A source told an entertainment website that Penn was “tiring in his seriousness and lack of fun”, and that Theron needed a ‘breather’. Reportedly, things started getting bad after their appearance at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, post which their engagement was called off.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
Several reasons surfaced for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s divorce after 10 years of marriage. Some reports claim that it was because of Affleck’s absence from home for long durations, while Garner wanted him to be more involved in her daily life. The actors have three children together. It was also rumoured that Affleck was having an affair with their nanny.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
The couple broke up around August after dating for four years. They earlier took a break in April. It has been reported that since they have “a lot of love for each other”, they are still on good terms. The two actors met in 2011 on the sets of The Amazing Spider-Man (2012), in which Stone played Gwen Stacy and Garfield played Peter Parker.
Freida Pinto and Ronnie Bacardi
Pinto, who was earlier allegedly dating Dev Patel, was photographed kissing polo player Ronnie Bacardi at a night out in Beverly Hills, USA, in October. Reportedly, they even enjoyed a romantic getaway in Vancouver, Canada, where they celebrated Pinto’s birthday. The couple was recently photographed cuddling up at a basketball game.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
The two were first spotted together at the American Music Awards after-party in November. They were seen again
at a Los Angeles restaurant with Hadid’s sister, Bella. At that point, sources said that the two couldn’t keep their hands off each other. Later that month, they were again spotted at the same restaurant in coordinated outfits.
Rihanna and Lewis Hamilton
Speculation that the two have been dating has been widespread for months. They were recently spotted at the annual Crop Over Festival in Barbados and in New York, USA. Hamilton, who split with Nicole Scherzinger in February, said, reportedly, that the two have been friends for a while and that they hang out “every now and again”.
Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris
The couple sparked rumours of being in a relationship when they showed up hand-in-hand at this year’s Brit Awards. Later, Swift was spotted at a Calvin Harris concert in Las Vegas, USA. They have been spotted shopping together several times this year. Swift as well as Harris regularly post pictures of each other on Instagram.

The couple appeared on a reality TV show and were photographed together for the first time in early November. Stefani filed for divorce from Gavin Rossdale in August, while Shelton filed for divorce from Miranda Lambert, his wife of four years, in July.
