All the Celebrity Couples Who've Called It Quits in 2021
See which stars are going their separate ways
Saweetie & Quavo
In early March, social media users began speculating that the rappers had split after the Migos star and "Emotional" hitmaker appeared to have unfollowed each other on Instagram.
Saweetie confirmed the news in two tweets she shared on March 19. Seemingly addressing infidelity, the singer-rapper wrote, "I'm single. I've endured too much betrayal and hurt behind the scenes for a false narrative to be circulating that degrades my character."
After the pair had become known for exchanging lavish gifts, she wrote, "Presents don't band aid scars and the love isn't real when the intimacy is given to other women."
Camila Mendes & Grayson Vaughan
The Riverdale star and the photographer split after less than a year of dating, according to E! News. "There was no drama at all, and they are still friends. Their relationship just ran its course," a source told the outlet.
Mendes has since wiped her Instagram of photos with Vaughan and does not follow him on the app, though photos that he took of her remain up.
She also shared a post about men being "emotional" on her Instagram Story Friday.
"I'm not sure how men did it, but convincing the world that women are the emotional gender is maybe the most successful scam in history," the post read, with Mendes captioning it "this."
Reps for the actress did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.
Joe Exotic & Dillon PAssage
"To answer the main question the public wants to know, yes, Joe and I are seeking a divorce," Passage wrote on his Instagram. "This wasn't an easy decision to make but Joe and I both understand that this situation isn't fair to either of us. It's something that neither of us were expecting but we are going to take it day by day."
"We are on good terms still and I hope it can stay that way," he continued. "I will continue to have Joe in my life and do my best to support him while he undergoes further legal battles to better his situation."
Tinsley Mortimer & Scott Kluth
In March, Kluth said he and the former Real Housewives of New York City star had ended their engagement several months prior, more than a year after the CouponCabin CEO proposed.
"After fourteen months of engagement, Tinsley and I have ended our relationship, and we have been living independently for the last few months," Kluth, 40, told PEOPLE in a statement. "This was an incredibly difficult decision, but it is one that I believe is best for both of us. I will always care about Tinsley and I sincerely wish her happiness and success in all that she does in the future."
"While I understand this news will be of interest to many, I ask for privacy and understanding during this time as I continue to work on recovering emotionally from the end of our relationship," the statement concluded.
A source close to the couple told PEOPLE, however, that Mortimer was "blindsided" by the breakup.
Kelly Mi Li & Andrew Gray
"Over the past 5 and half years, Andrew and I have shared some incredible times together. I have a tremendous amount of respect and love for him and will always cherish the memories we made," Li, 35, wrote alongside a selfie of the pair at the beach.
"However, we have made the difficult decision to officially separate at this point in our lives. We are both so grateful to have experienced a relationship that allowed us to grow and learn so much," she continued.
Gray, 34, shared a similar statement to his account.
Mackenzie Dipman & Connor Trott
The Love Island stars, who met last year on season 2 of the reality show, announced that they’re going their separate ways in a joint statement on March 6.
"Some of you have been wondering about us and our relationship, so we want to help you to understand where we are right now," they wrote, adding that long distance had been a factor in their split. "We are both young and in the early stages of our careers, and sadly those careers are keeping us in two different places. One of us is in Pittsburgh and the other is in Tucson, and neither one of us will be able to move anytime in the near future."
"So over the last couple of weeks we have started having some difficult conversations about our future. Ultimately we both realized that our lives are moving in different directions," they added. "This was not a decision we took lightly. We both have so much love for each other and had hopes that we could make this work, but relationships are all about timing, and this is just not our time."
Alice Evans & Ioan Gruffudd
The Fantastic Four (2005) star filed for divorce on March 2 after 13 years of marriage, PEOPLE confirmed.
"My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week," Evans, 49, said in a since-deleted tweet, captured by Page Six and multiple outlets. "Me and our young daughters girls are very confused and sad."
After news of his filing broke, Evans spoke out on Instagram, writing, "I can't sleep. Not a wink. I am terrified for what tomorrow will bring. Oh don't worry, I'm fully aware of how pathetic that sounds," she began. "I'll make it worse. Do you what I'm mostly scared of? It's who the girl is. I know! Why? Why would it even matter?"
Gruffudd has so far not commented on her tweets. In a joint statement obtained by PEOPLE, the two said, "As you can imagine, this is an incredibly difficult time for our family and we remain committed to our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy."

Amber Portwood & Dimitri
During the season 9 premiere of Teen Mom OG, Portwood shared that she was struggling with the pair's long-distance relationship, telling MTV producer Townsend that her Belgian beau "has been calling me nonstop" throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
"I need to be aware of this dynamic because I've been in controlling relationships before," said Amber, 30. "He's possessive from a distance, he needs to know what I'm doing all day every day," she alleged.
After confronting him, Portwood revealed to ex Gary Shirley later in the episode that she had broken up with Dimitri.
Lindsay Hubbard & Stephen Traversie
The former couple began dating in summer 2019 during season 4 of the hit Bravo show.
During an appearance on PeopleTV's Reality Check, the Summer House star confirmed their split and revealed that staying home together during the COVID-19 pandemic ultimately strained their relationship.
"Unfortunately Stephen and I broke up, so I am single," she said. "He's a great guy. Obviously, COVID brings a lot to the forefront in a lot of relationships, ours is no exception to that. I hope he finds happiness and lives his best life because I certainly plan to do the same."
Jeff Lewis & Scott Anderson
The former Flipping Out star revealed on his SiriusXM radio show Jeff Lewis Live on Jan. 25 that he and Anderson had split once again, for what he said was "the fourth time." (The pair most recently broke up in late September.)
Lewis, 50, explained that the couple — who first started dating in May 2019 — were recently together at the former Bravo star's house when Anderson revealed that he wanted to end the relationship.
"I just kind of let him walk out the door," Lewis added of Anderson, "because I can't ... I don't have the energy. I don't have the energy to fight for it. This is the fourth time this has happened. I can almost plan it to the calendar."
Bri Stauss & Chris Watson
"Hey fam. It pains us to say this, but we have made the difficult decision to go our separate ways," the pair began a joint statement shared on their respective Instagram accounts on Jan. 21.
"We met and fell in love in the most beautiful and unique way, and because of that, we have a special bond that we will cherish forever," the statement continues. "Thank you for the love and support to our fans, friends, family, and in particular, Bachelor Nation. You made this entire experience so special and unforgettable."
They added that they "still hope to make music and tour together in the future, but for now we ask for privacy as we navigate the next chapter. Love you forever, Chris and Bri."
Clare Crawley & Dale Moss
"I wanted to share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways. We appreciate the love and support we've received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time," Moss wrote in a statement shared to Instagram.
Crawley spoke out days later, sharing, "I was made aware of a 'mutual' statement at the same time you all were, so I've needed some time to really digest this," she began. "Speaking for myself, my intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is I am crushed."
The pair recently appear to have reunited at a resort in Florida.
Ben Affleck & Ana de Armas
The pair called it quits after nearly a year together, PEOPLE announced on Jan. 18.
“Ben is no longer dating Ana," a source told PEOPLE. "She broke it off. Their relationship was complicated. Ana doesn't want to be Los Angeles based and Ben obviously has to since his kids live in Los Angeles.”
Affleck, 48, and the Knives Out actress, 32, were first romantically linked in early March 2020, when they were seen on a trip to her native Cuba after meeting while filming the upcoming thriller Deep Water in New Orleans.
The pair were frequently spotted together on daily walks in L.A. throughout the summer.
Shia LaBeouf & Margaret Qualley
The pair, who were spotted together numerous times but never publicly announced their relationship, have split, a source told PEOPLE on Jan. 7. News of their split came as the Transformers actor faced allegations of abuse from his ex-girlfriend, singer FKA Twigs.
"They broke up on Saturday. They're just in different places in their lives," the source said of the pair.
Another source told PEOPLE the Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood actress was aware of the "backlash" she received for seeing LaBeouf amid the lawsuit filed by singer FKA twigs, born Tahliah Debrett Barnett, accusing him of sexually and physically assaulting and battering her.
A source previously told PEOPLE that LaBeouf, 34, and Qualley, 26, first started seeing each other after starring in a NSFW music video, Love Me Like You Hate Me, together in the fall.
Justine Ndiba & Caleb Corprew
The Love Island fan favorites and season 2 winners split.

"It's truly a strange feeling to be typing this out but I understand my reality is now having to share some aspects of my life with you all regardless of how private I'd like to remain at times," Justine wrote in a statement posted on Instagram, in which she explained, “Caleb and I are no longer together.”
Caleb spoke out in a statement as well, acknowledging their split. "As many of you already know, Justine and I are no longer together.

"It is my deepest desire for us to be loving co-parents and keep a peaceful environment out of respect for our children."
Walker shared a similar message, describing their decision as "very difficult."
Cely Vazquez & Johnny Middlebrooks
The Love Island stars are going their separate ways, they announced on social media on Jan. 9.
"Because you've all been such a close part of our relationship, I wanted to share with you that Johnny and I are no longer together," Vazquez, 24, wrote. "While our relationship has been public from the start, I do ask that you respect this decision and our privacy during this time."
"There is no reason to speculate, I am so thankful for our time together, but now it's simply time for each of us to focus on our personal journey," she continued. "I hope that you continue to support each of us individually as we move forward, heal and continue to follow our dreams."
Middlebrooks, 22, also shared a message about their split, writing that he "will forever cherish" the time they spent together.
