Some of the 2022 celebrity relationships ended in peace and amicably, while others made it to the news headlines with their dramatic and surprising end, but ultimately, many of the star couples we were hoping would last forever as our ideal real-life love story wound up not meant to.
Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady:
Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady announced that their 13-year-long relationship had reached its end in October following months of rumors about marital difficulties. After 13 years of marriage, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen officially divorced on October 28 2022.
The couple first met in 2006 with a wedding following in 2009, and later on they welcomed two children. However, tensions started when Brady returned to football after a brief retirement in 2022. In October 2022, Bundchen reported being “done” trying to make things work. “She doesn’t believes that her marriage can be repaired.” says our source.
Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson:
Meanwhile, without much warning, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson’s whirlwind relationship ended after nine months over the summer, with some reports blaming long distance for the split.
In October 2021, Kardashian made her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live and acted in a few sketches, including one opposite Davidson. The two played Aladdin and Jasmine in a scene that ended with a kiss.
The two went official on Instagram sharing two photos of each other, in March 2022. After nine months of dating, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson had broken up in August, 2022.
Shakira And Gerard Pique:
They announced their separation in a joint statement on June 4th, 2022 after a decade together.
The two confirmed their relationship in 2011 – one year after their meeting as the Barcelona star appeared in Shakira’s hit music video “Waka Waka” for the 2010 South Africa World Cup. Shakira and Pique welcomed their first child in September 2013 and the second child in 2015.
“We regret to confirm that we are separating,” the couple’s joint statement read. “We ask for privacy at this moment for the well-being of our children, who are our maximum priority. Thank you in advance for your understanding and respect.“
Despite that the year might seem a tragic time for the romance department, many celebrity relationships reversed the cards and blossomed in 2022. Starting from a very opulent Italian wedding of Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s reunion after 20 years apart, this was a year of both love and loss.
