2020 Was Too Much for These Celebrity Couples



2020 was a hell of a year, wasn't it? What's that you say? It's still happening? No, surely you must be wrong, there's no way it's only June for how much has happened so far. 

In all seriousness, it's been a tough year, and it's already proved to be too tough for some celebrity couples, who have called it quits. Here are the biggest celebrity breakups of 2020 so far.

Fans of Kelly Clarkson were surprised by the news that she and Brandon Blackstock were seeking a divorce after nearly 7 years of marriage amid cheating rumors. Just a month before filing, the 38-year-old singer was surprised on her show with a loving birthday video from Brandon and their kids. They share two kids — 6-year-old River and 4-year-old Remington — and Kelly is stepmother to Savannah and Seth, Brandon's kids from a previous marriage.

After 10 years of marriage and 3 kids, the Transformers star and 90210 heartthrob have separated. While it's not the first time in their 16-year relationship that they've declared they are over, this time seems different. Megan appears to have rebounded with Machine Gun Kelly, while Brian seems to be dating Courtney Stodden. 2020 is wild, y'all. Wild.

Probably the bitterest divorce of 2020 belongs to Mary Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy. The latter reportedly kicked his wife of 5 years out of their NYC apartment and the Elizabeth James designer filed for an emergency divorce to prevent him from destroying all her belongings still inside their townhouse. Her petition was denied and deemed "non-essential." We're all having a bad year, but MK's seems particularly sucky.

Strike that. Jaime King's year is pretty awful, too. The actress filed for divorce from director Kyle Newman after 13 years, and she also filed a domestic violence prevention petition and received a temporary restraining order against her spouse.

Sorry, Bachelor nation — but it seems even a love strong enough to make a man jump a fence can't survive this year. Cassie and Colton are no more, and decided they're better as friends.

Just a few months after the birth of their son, Princess Love filed for divorce from Ray J after a little less than four years of marriage. The Love and Hip Hop Hollywood stars' relationship was turbulent from start to finish. Since production on Season 7 is "indefinitely postponed," it remains to be seen how much of their post-split drama will make it to air.
