Is Fall Break-up Season? Celebrity Couples Who Split After Summer
Is there a such thing as a “break-up season?” We haven’t done any studies on the phenomenon but it sure seems like a lot of celebrity couples have called it quits this fall. Maybe it’s the end of swimsuit season or the cold weather. What do you think? Is there a time of year when you’re more likely to lose your boo? Seems like that’s the case for these pairs.
Chris Brown and Karreuche Tran
Chris Brown announced (yet another) breakup with Karrueche Tran with this Tweet:
“Don’t sleep with a white tee on next to ya shawty. Gonna wake up wit footprints on ya back.
Back turned walking away from the situation. Hamisheh asegh!”
We’re not sure exactly what the drama was that led to their most recent split. But we do know that “Hamisheh asegh!” is misspelled Persian for “perpetual lover”. It seems this break-up might be short lived though as Karrueche has vowed to stay by her boo while he’s in rehab.
Derrick Rose and Mieka Reese
On the very same day that Karreuche and Chris seemingly called it quits, Mieka Reese announced her own breakup via Instagram:
“PJ is the center of my life now and Derrick and I work together to co-parent for him. No Derrick and I are not in a relationship anymore but our friendship has always been there and will continue to grow.”
Rihanna and Chris Brown
These two aren’t even together anymore and they’re still breaking up. Recently, Chris Brown released a song shading his former girlfriend. But instead of clapping back (and hooking back up), Rihanna ignored him. When the paps asked her camp for a quote, Rihanna said she was super done with Chris. Will they ever get back together? “Not in this lifetime. Not in the next lifetime.” That’s deep.
Master P and Sonya Miller
Even marriages aren’t safe. Recently, Sonya Miller filed to end her 24-year marriage to rapper Master P. But apparently these two have been on the rocks for a minute. Master P even had a new boo who threw him a flash mob surprise birthday party in Santa Monica in April. But that didn’t work out either. He hated the gesture so much he stormed out of the restaurant.
Timbaland and Monique Mosely
Earlier this month, Timbaland’s wife filed for divorce too. And get this: not only does she want him to pay child support for his kid, she wants him to pay for the kid that isn’t his. She also wants alimony before the divorce is finalized and her divorce lawyer’s fees reimbursed. It’s gone git ug-lay…
Floyd Mayweather and Princess Love
Floyd Mayweather may not have been married, but he’s definitely in the running for “Worst Breakup This Fall.” Apparently Princess Love (allegedly) robbed Floyd the night of his fight with Canelo Alvarez. He came home to find Rolex watches and around $10K in cash gone. Floyd still can’t find Princess. But word on the street is that a friend of hers fessed up and said that not only did Princess rob Floyd — she cheated on him with Ray J. Ouch.
Khloe and Lamar
OK, this hasn’t officially happened yet, but we’re pretty sure this announcement will come before winter break does.
K. Michelle and Lance Stephenson
Within about a month of us finding out K. Michelle had a new boo, she had to go back and announce that she was done with Lance Stephenson with this Tweet:
Kendall Jenner and Julian Brooks
We didn’t even know Kris Jenner was in a relationship and she broke-up this month. Apparently she and reality star Julian Brooks dated for a year or so but kept it on the low. But when Kendall heard rumors that Julian had been cheating a few weeks ago, she handed him his walking papers.
Kris and Bruce Jenner
Kendall isn’t the only Jenner to end her relationship. Earlier this month, Bruce and Kris Jenner officially announced the end of their 22-year marriage. The two say that nothing major caused the split — they just drifted apart. Riiight.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
No fall breakup list would be complete without the September split that caused Miley Cyrus to spiral out of control.
George and Shellie Zimmerman
In September, George Zimmerman confirmed what the jury in the Trayvon Martin case should have known: he is a gun-wielding maniac. Shortly after his trial was over, he pulled a gun on his wife and her father after Shellie filed for divorce.
Columbus Short and Tanee McCall-Short
“Scandal” star Columbus Short’s wife Tanee filed for divorce on September 11th and is seeking full custody of their 19-month old daughter. The couple hasn’t come forward to say why their marriage ended. But we know why Columbus’ first marriage did: he cheated on his first wife when she was 8 months pregnant — with Britney Spears (yes, that Britney).
Elle Varner and Iman Shumpert
Nearly the same day as Columbus split from his wife, singer Elle Varner announced that she was breaking up with her boyfriend, Knicks baller Iman Shumpert, with a Tweet:
Unfortunately, neither of the two are willing to give more details about the split.
