Celeb breakups are the worst. There you are, just hardcore shipping your faves, when BAM: Splitsville (usually followed by a very polite PR statement about how the couple will always remain friends). This year, way too many of our fave celeb couples (ZAYN and Gigi, Mac Miller and Ariana Grande, Nicki and Nas, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, just to name a few) have called it quits. SAD TIMES, for real.
