So many celebrity couples called it quits this year let alone within the last couple of months. We recently compiled a list of celebrities — like Ciara and Future — who called off their engagements. But since this slideshow’s publication, there have been not only more engagement call offs, but celebrity breakups and divorces. Here’s another list of celebrities who gave up on their marriages, engagements and relationships. What’s really going on, Hollywood?!
I feel so proud to say that 4 months after delivering a 9 lbs. 10 oz. baby, I can finally rock My Calvin’s! #mycalvins
Mommies, if you need some gym inspiration, we have a new spokesperson for you! Singer Ciara looks absolutely amazing just 4 months after giving birth to her son. The 29-year-old lost 60 pounds after delivering a 9 lbs 10z. baby boy. Ciara posted two pictures of her gorgeous figure in her Calvin Klein undies.
Ciara revealed to US Weekly how she stayed fit,”You go from the mommy gym at home to the real gym and then you go to the stage. For me it’s all about not only getting back into the place that I was in before. I had a baby but now, going even further. I want to be one of those moms and women that when I look back, I know that I always stayed focused. And I think it’s about keeping your eyes on the prize.”
Check out the fab pics Ciara below.

Ladies and gentleman, it’s officially over! According to Pagesix, Ciara is offically done with Future. The outlet is reporting that the singer gave Future back her engagement ring. The 15-carat emerald-cut engagement ring was designed by Avianne & Co. and valued at $500, 000.
The two were engaged for a short time before rumors of Future cheating began to cloud their relationship. Future was supposedly involved with his stylist and personal assistant. Future and Ciara started dating back in 2012. The songstress gave birth to their son on May 19th, 2014.
Friends close to Ciara also say she’s “definitely not getting back together” with the rapper, and is focused on being a mom to their son, Future Jr.”
It was speculated that a romantic reunion between Ciara and 50 Cent is in the works after Ciara was photographed leaving the funeral of his grandmother, Beulah Jackson. But 50 says that definitely isn’t the case. In an interview with Vibe, the Queens rapper explained that he’s still good friends with CiCi, who also had a relationship with his granny.
“Ciara is a really good friend of mine and she came to show me support when I lost my grandmother because she had her relationship with my grandmother,” he said. “People don’t know but we have been friends for about four years so that’s why [people] are surprised to come and see her support.”
As for CiCi being photographed at the memorial service, 50 had this to say:
“It’s unfortunate that somebody would take a picture [of her at my grandmother's funeral]. You got people out there that are supposed to just follow and not have any significance at all. At the end, they look for any opportunity to take a photograph to get their followers up. Some things are supposed to be entertainment and some things are supposed to be part of your life. When your personal life become business, it gets interesting.”
Sadly, 50 recalls being at work when he learned of his grandmother’s passing.
“I had to go to ‘Power’ to rehearse the action sequences and I was on the treadmill, working with the stunt coordinators, when my aunt called me and told me I needed to come to the hospital. I had the chance to talk to her a little bit before she passed.
My grandmama was coherent the whole time. I’ve seen a lot of people die around me but I saw them die on the corner that we were standing on. Outside is a different danger. It’s like you go to the hospital, [my grandma's] up, she’s there, she’s alert. She responded to my voice and then after I see her, her blood pressure starts to drop and then she’s gone.”
50 has always been open about how close he is to his grandparents, so we’re definitely sending our prayers to him as well as his family.
“He Needs To Learn How To Be True To Somebody”: Porsha Williams Questions Why Ciara Took Future Back
Some people were surprised while others were a little disappointed when news came out that Ciara had reunited with Future. While it probably made sense to her — they do have a newborn together, his fourth child — to critics on the outside, it wasn’t a good idea. One person who feels that way is Porsha Williams. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star who works on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show through her gig on “Dish Nation” took to the microphone today to speak on Ci Ci and Future reuniting. She responded to a tweet that Ciara posted at the beginning of this month, which may or may have not had nothing to do with Future. It said:
Whoever she was speaking about, Williams had some thoughts about this series of tweets. This is what she had to say, according to ThatGrapeJuice:
“Wait a minute. Wait, wait, wait! Who is she giving the ‘young pass’ to? Him? He’s thirty something years old, how does he get a ‘young pass’? Come on now. She says he’s still learning? What else does he need to learn? He knows he learned how to make all of those babies…he needs to learn how to be true to somebody.”
This is all interesting considering that Williams wanted to work things out with Kordell Stewart. We all saw that she was hoping for a short time that they could get therapy and get back together after he did her dirty by filing for divorce on the low low and after she knew (as she claimed) that he physically abused her. She should know that love is a ‘mutha,’ and Ciara is still very much in love with that man. It might not be the best idea for them to get back together, but it’s her decision to make (and possibly her lesson to learn).
What do you think of Stewart’s comments?
On Instagram’s #ManCrushMonday or #WomanCrushWednesday, there’s no feeling greater for some than to be able to show off a new boo! However, things get a little sticky when “bae” decides to call it quits after your very public deceleration of love.
In Hollywood, famous women are often spilling all the details about the new man they’re head-over-heels for, but ended up regretting it when their high-profile relationships ended. Here are a few examples of couples who called it quits after speaking publicly about their feelings for one another.
Last month, there were reports that Ciara called off her engagement to Future after he cheated on her with his stylist.
“He cheated on her. Game over,” said a source claiming to have knowledge of the split.
Now, we’re hearing that the two have decided to give their relationship another try for the sake of their infant son. According to TMZ, Ciara is adamant about the baby needing his father around 24/7. Sources claim that she has zero interest in subjecting her son to a shared parenting situation. She believes Future is a great father and that it’s best if he’s in their baby’s life on a consistent basis. As a result, the pair have reportedly moved back in together and are trying to make things work between them.
Interestingly, just last week, sources came forward claiming that friends and relatives were extremely concerned because Ciara has been avoiding them since the reported split.
“She’s very embarrassed and keeping to herself right now,” the source claimed. “She’s usually so outgoing but most of her friends haven’t heard from her since the news broke.”
“It’s a hard time for her. She’s humiliated and angry.”
We don’t really expect to receive any sort of verbal confirmation from these two about their rumored reunion, as neither of them formally addressed the breakup rumors in the first place. It would probably be nothing for them to go back to making public appearances as if nothing ever happened. I guess we’ll know for sure if we see them out and about again—or when CiCi puts her ring back on.
“She’s Very Embarrassed”: Ciara Reportedly Keeping To Herself, Away From Friends And Family, Since Split From Future
Ever since news spread about Ciara and Future’s split earlier this month, she’s been very quiet about everything, aside from checking Us Weekly about a report they did claiming she talked to the magazine about life after leaving the rapper:
“@UsWeekly I did not do this interview with you! This is a lie, and tasteless! Must you be that thirsty to create a story?! Unbelievable”
“Be CLEAR @usweekly. I interviewed with your Beauty Editor about Degree & Mtv HOS. U manipulated my words & took the interview for sensation.”
“As I Said, Thirsty!!”
But according to a new report from E! News, a source close to the singer says she has been keeping to herself and focusing on her son, Future, since their engagement ended.
The source told the mag, “she’s very embarrassed and keeping to herself right now.”
“She’s usually so outgoing but most of her friends haven’t heard from her since the news broke.”
The source says that the singer also isn’t talking about the split and doesn’t plan to.
“It’s a hard time for her. She’s humiliated and angry.”
When CiCi covered Brides, she said that she had a wedding date set with Future, who she called “my best friend in the world, my partner.”
According to the singer’s Instagram account, aside from going to the studio to work on new music, she’s been making business moves and rolling solo. She recently (as in yesterday) posted a picture of herself in the gym, holding baby Future, the little guy she’s focused on amid all the drama.
“Nothing Like Lifting THIS Weight, After Gym:) He Motivates Me To Go Harder.”
After weeks of completely ignoring reports that his fiancée, Ciara, called off their engagement because he cheated on her with his stylist, Future decided to address the rumors via Instagram in a bit of a roundabout way.
“I Dnt respond to rumors I respond to money #MONSTER,” he captioned a photo of himself sitting in what appears to be a recording studio.
His post appears to be more symbolic than anything, as it has been reported that he’s set to address his split from the “I’m Out” singer on his new mixtape, “Evol,” which is love spelled backwards and pronounced “evil.” Friends of the 30-year-old rapper have already spoken out about the project.
“That love thing kinda hindered him I think, it slowed him down mentally,” one friend told BuzzFeed. “Future’s one of those dudes you don’t really interview,” he said. “To know what’s going on in his life that day, you gotta go to the studio that day. He just takes longer to put his words together and his thoughts.”
The friend went on to say that the project isn’t actually about falling out of love, but rather the various and unexpected forms that love can take.
“Future has a weird way to love. You might see it’s not all the way right, but it’s still love. It’s not traditional love,” the friend went on. “Future loves all his kids and babies’ mothers. I think he’s loved all of them equally.
In other Future news, it also appears that mother of one of his other sons, Brittni Mealy, accompanied him during his recent trip to Europe. It’s unclear whether or not the two have reunited romantically, but at this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised.

In today’s day and age, you can’t just be a talented musician without someone looking to compare your talents to someone else. That includes the legends, as well as today’s icons. But sometimes, even when people mean well, some reach quite far when comparing today’s artists to those of the past and present. Here are a few examples of musical comparisons gone left…
Jhene Aiko Being Compared To Sade
I’m a pretty huge Sade fan, and really, I don’t think there is anyone like her musically. This is not to say that she’s the greatest to ever do it, but she carved out her own lane and is one of the few performers who can go on long breaks and still be welcomed back with open arms (and #1 albums) when she returns. So when I heard the comparisons between Sade Adu and Jhene Aiko, I raised an eyebrow. Aiko said that at one point, people classified her and her music as a “younger Sade with urban stories.” And in VIBE she said it’s a comparison she embraces: “That’s great if people think that because she’s amazing. That’s someone I’d love to be in the same lane as.”
