From reality tv couples to romances between actors, fans become very dedicated in celebrity relationships.
As a celebrity, it is very hard to keep personal lives private. Fans always want to know what is going on in an actor’s or singer’s life, so reports of happiness and scandal are always being reported to the public. Social media specifically has greatly increased the amount of private information that celebrities share with fans, whether they want to or would rather keep things to themselves.
The most important information fans want to know is who a celebrity is dating. Relationship drama is in high demand by the public, and fans become very dedicated in celebrity relationships. This dedication only makes matters worse when celebrities end up parting ways. Here are some of the celebrity couples that called in quits in 2022 that fans are devastated are not remaining together.
8. Clayton Echard And Susie Evans
The romance of Clayton Echard and Susie Evans was one of the biggest controversial relationships in the eyes of Bachelor Nation. Echard was the bachelor of The Bachelor’s 26th season at the beginning of 2022. Fans despised Echard for telling three girls he was in love with them: Gabby Windey, Rachel Recchia, and Susie Evans.
Echard ended up leaving The Bachelor alone, as Evans had left and he sent Windey and Recchia home. After the show, Echard and Evans reconciled and dated for a long time. Fans are upset that they announced their separation, especially considering all the drama that led to them getting together. Evans shared she is trying to “fix her life” post-slit.
7. Julia Michaels And JP Saxe
Singers Julia Michaels and JP Saxe first got together while writing their hit song “If the World Was Ending” in 2019. The two wrote a lot of music together during their three-year relationship, and fans loved hearing details about their relationship in their music. Saxe revealed that they moved in together during the pandemic.
Rumors of their split began in early September when Michaels and Saxe both shared lyrics from unreleased songs. The story of their break up seems to be the inspiration behind their upcoming music, and fans are sad to see this songwriting power couple call it quits.

4. Leonardo DiCaprio And Camila Morrone
Leonardo DiCaprio is the permanent bachelor in the eyes of Hollywood. He is known for dating women who are much younger than him, and social media claims the actor has an age cut off for his significant others.
This seemed to be true with his most recent split. DiCaprio has split from his girlfriend of four years, Camila Morrone, and she has stayed quiet on their break up. News of the split caused many fans online to criticize DiCaprio’s dating habits, though he claims age has never been a determining factor in his relationships or break ups.
3. Danielle Ruhl And Nick Thompson
News of Danielle Ruhl and Nick Thompson’s divorce shocked many fans. The two starred in Netflix’s Love Is Blind season 2 and were married for a year before filing for divorce. Netflix also just released a Love Is Blind reunion, which showed Ruhl and Thompson in a very good and happy place. Fans are left to wonder what went down between the time of filming and the release of the episodes.
They are not the only couple to split from the second season of Love Is Blind. Jarrette Jones and Iyanna McNeely also chose to file for a divorce, but fans were not as shocked by their split since they had been public with their marital issues.
