Yes, you read that title correctly. It’s possible.

There’s a lot of politics that go into dumping someone correctly. Ideally, it would be done face-to-face, and probably in a public area in order to avoid a crazy scene. But now, it seems like times have changed in a world where technology is interfering in more areas of our lives.

Here are 10 situations where it’s okay to dump someone through text message.

1. It’s the early days.
If you’ve only been on a few dates, a breakupmight not even be necessary, unless someone is truly confused as to why you’ve disappeared off the face of the planet. But a text message is okay in this instance. You barely know the person. Three or four dates equal about eight hours together. No need for a long handwritten letter. In fact, you probably don’t even know your dumpee’s address.

Update: Khloe Kardashian Files For Divorce

Update 4:35 p.m.- TMZ is reporting that Khloe Kardashian has officially filed for divorce from her husband of four years, Lamar Odom. Papers were filed by Khloe’s divorce attorney, Laura Wasser,  and as previously reported, cite “irreconcilable differences.”

When Khloe Kardashian dropped the Odom from her last name on Twitter, we should’ve known this was coming. It’s difficult to tell exactly how long Khloe and Lamar have been experiencing marital problems, but their issues definitely became more visible once Lamar’s alleged drug abuse issues began to taint his image in the public eye. Though Khloe took to social media with a statement reaffirming her commitment to making her marriage work and vowing to “ride til’ the end,” it appears that the wheels on that ride may have just given out. According to TMZ, it’s believed that the youngest Kardashian sister will be filing for divorce today.

Sources say that after just four years of marriage, Khloe will be citing irreconcilable differences in her divorce filing. It’s believed that the split should be a pretty clean one, as it’s reported that the estranged couple have airtight prenuptial agreements that kept all of their assets separate. And of course, there are no children, so an ugly, drawn out child custody dispute isn’t a concern.

At this point, nothing has been confirmed and this is all pure speculation. We can only hope that the rumors are not true and that Khloe and Lamar can find a way to work things out. But again, we don’t know what’s happening behind closed doors, so we won’t judge. Maybe it’s all for the best.

Kelis Says Nas Is A Cheater And She Doesn’t Want Him Back

I’ll admit that I’m definitely one of the people who rode that Nas-and-Kelis-are-still-madly-in-love-and-are-going-to-get-back-together-someday wave. I always thought that they were an adorable couple. But truthfully, I could’ve just been romanticizing their split because we were left in the dark for so long regarding the dirty details regarding their break up. My desire for the hip-hop couple to reunite only intensified when the 39-year-old Queens rapper released his Life is Good album where he appeared on the cover, holding his ex-wife’s wedding gown and released songs that were obviously about his releationship with her such as, “Bye Baby.”

In an interview earlier this year, Nas even revealed that he and Kelis were working on their friendship and that he low-key tried to get back with her.

“We’re back together as friends. We were not the best of friends for a long time. We’re friends now and that’s what it is. We’re not together but we’re friends though. I even said, ‘yo, should we try this again?’ I’m like wow. We had all kinds of talks. You know how that is. We have a child. But we’re friends and I’m glad to be at that place. I don’t want no beef. No beef wit ya mama,” Nas honestly expressed.

Since then, there hasn’t been much said about the possibility of a romantic reunion between the pair. Well, until now, that is. One of Kelis’ Instagram followers expressed how happy they were to see Kelis back out in the spotlight and attempted to offer encouragement regarding her situation with ex-husband, Nas.

Surpisingly, Kelis responded to the fan’s well wishes, thanking them for their concern, but letting it be known that she’s not interested in reconciling with Nas because he’d been unfaithful to her.

Then, another fan chimed in, praising the “Jerk Ribs” singer for being real about her feelings and what happened.
