Summer 2015 has NOT been the summer of love! We’re starting to feel hopeless about romance, since so many great celebrity couples decided to call it quits this summer. Here are our picks for the eight celebrity breakups that have broken our hearts the most:
8. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
One of the most high-profile breakups of the summer was definitely the split between Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. They first fell in love on the set of the film Daredevil in 2003, then began dating in 2004 and got married in 2005. In their ten years together, they had three kids: Seraphina, Violet and Samuel, and were often vocal about how much they cared about each other. (Perhaps in retrospect we should have known something was wrong when Ben talked about how their marriage was “work” in his Best Picture Oscar speech for Argo.) Soon all we heard about was how they were spending more and more time apart, how Ben was gambling in Vegas, and how he was developing some kind of relationship with their nanny, Christine Ouzounian. On June 20, they announced they were divorcing and now they’ve both been spotted without their wedding rings. Bummer!
