It seems to be divorce season in Hollywood. In the past few weeks, there have been multiple accounts of divorce filings and separations in Hollywood, each as shocking as the rest.
The unfortunate uncouplings are just on the heels of splits and divorces in 2021 from celebrity couples like Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello; Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid; and Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez. In a statement made on April 15, 2021 by J-Lo (who is now married to her ex Ben Affleck) and A-Rod announced that they had ended their engagement after four years together. “We have realized we are better as friends and look forward to remaining so,” the statement read. “We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects. We wish the best for each other and one another’s children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support.”
This unlucky trend has spilled over in 2022 especially in this month. The coupes affected include Tia Mowry who has filed for a divorce from Corey Hardrict, her husband of 14 years. There’s also Love is Blind’s Iyanla McNeely who also filed against Jarette Jones, her match from the sensational reality show.
Pro footballer Tom Brady and his ex-supermodel wife Gisele Bundchen have reportedly hired divorce lawyers on the heels of their separation and if his Twitter bio is any indication, they might be going through with it.
Also, Nanzanin Mandi had filed for divorce against musician Miguel after their short separation in 2020.
Divorces are not necessarily bad occurrences but they can trigger certain emotional reactions. On that note, we hope these former couples have all the support they need.
