Breakups suck—no matter who’s involved. But when they play out in the tabloids in front of millions of strangers, well, that’s unfathomable—and the life of a celebrity. While most of us can hide from an ex with a simple block button on social media, celebrities have to watch their relationships—and their dissolutions—play over and over again in the media, and 2018 is no different.

Each year sees its share of devastating celebrity breakups, but with the split of fan-favorite couples such as Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, and Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, 2018 was on a whole ‘nother level.

With 2019 approaching, we thought it would be fitting to take a ride down memory lane and look back at the 15 most devastating celebrity breakups of this year. Some of these splits are recent, like Paris Hilton and Chris Zylka’s ended engagement, while others might be harder to remember, such as Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff’s amicable split. Whether they’re recent or old, these celebrity breakups are emotional all the same.

And though we’re holding out hope that some of these couples reunite (hey, miracles can happen—look at Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin), we’re not placing bets on any of these celebrity reunions. And so, we present you with the most devastating celebrity breakups of 2018. Grab a box of tissues because stars’ not-so-happy endings will definitely make you doubt your belief in love. Look back on the saddest celebrity splits ahead. We’re still not over these.
