Cher and Alexander ‘AE’ Edwards
After their engagement, the world was waiting for the news of their wedding. However, Cher and Alexander’s separation left their fans shocked. According to Us, the Believe singer and the music executive split after six months of dating despite engagement rumours. “AE and Cher were never engaged and that ring he got her was just a gift,” a source told Us, adding, “However, they had gotten very close and his son would even go over to Cher’s house in Malibu to play. Their relationship was real and they split a few weeks ago. There’s no bad blood between them and they’re on good terms”.
Diddy and Yung Miami
In April, The City Girls member Yung Miami told The Cut that she and Diddy had their “own situation” for a period of time, but are no longer romantically involved. “We’re still friends! We’re still good friends! But we’re single. That’s not my man. We were f–king with each other hard. We were together every day at one point. He supported me, I supported him. I’ll let the internet call it whatever they want to call it,” said the rapper.
Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn
The couple broke up after six years of dating, and a source close to the Grammy winner and the Conversations with Friends actor told PEOPLE that the split was largely caused by “differences in their personalities”. The source said, “They’ve had rough patches before and always worked things out, so friends thought they would take some time apart but eventually come back together. And ultimately Taylor and Alwyn “weren’t the right fit for one another”.
Maisie Williams and Reuben Selby
Actor Maisie Williams and boyfriend Reuben Selby have ended their relationship after five years of dating. The Game of Thrones star announced her breakup with the fashion creative with an Instagram story. The split marked “the end of an era,” she said. “Since we met 5 years ago, our connection always extended deeply into our shared, and separate, creative careers ... and it will continue to do so,” Williams wrote, adding, “This decision is something we are so grateful for as we can protect the magic, that we can’t help but emit, whenever we put our brains together.”

Top Gun: Maverick star Glen Powell and the model split in April after three years of dating. “Gigi and Glen had broken up several times,” an insider told People and added, “They had been on the rocks since Top Gun came out. Gigi was never happy with the long-distance filming, and when she came to Australia, they both decided to break up for good. It wasn’t about infidelity. She’s on different coasts modelling; he’s on different coasts filming. When she left, they were on great terms.”
