Hi there. How are you? Recovered from the heartbreaking celebrity breakups our souls barely survived this past year? Me neither. From one of the longest-running, low-key celebrity relationships between multitalented singer-actress-boss Jennifer Hudson and her partner of nearly 10 years, David Otunga, to Fergie and Josh Duhamel’s devastation split (which Fergie herself hasn’t recovered from *insert sobbing emoji*), this was a rough year.
And honestly, don’t even get me started on Ewan McGregor and his wife of 22 years (!) Eve Mavrakis breaking up in 2017. (McGregor is already rumoured to be in a new romance with his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead so there’s that.) Here, all the celeb breakups of 2017 that prove that love is unequivocallyand inarguably deceased—ranked in order from most to least soul-crushing.
Josh Duhamel and Fergie
Heartbreak-o-meter: 10/10 broken heart emojis. Fully scarred for life.
After eight years of marriage and one child (4-year-old Axl), Fergie and Josh Duhamel separated in early 2017, news they shared in a statement with People. “With absolute love and respect we decided to separate as a couple earlier this year. To give our family the best opportunity to adjust, we wanted to keep this a private matter before sharing it with the public,” the statement reads. “We are and will always be united in our support of each other and our family.” Not Fergalicious, too! Is nothing sacred?
