Few things are better than falling in love, but sometimes, love sucks -- especially if that love involves a celebrity couple that crumbles in a very, very public breakup. Even if someone is doing the dumping, the end of the a relationship can be pretty rough, and we can imagine it's even worse if the entire world wants to know the details. Though Hollywood has given us plenty of love stories to gush over, it's also given us devastating breakups that make us question if love even existed in the first place. In 2019 alone, so many celebs have called it quits, that we don't even know if #RelationshipGoals is a thing anymore!

While a breakup or a divorce has to be harder for the people who are actually in the relationships, it's hard for the rest of us who've felt invested in these couples from the first time they were spotted in public by the paparazzi. It's almost like finding out that two best friends have decided to call it quits -- and yes, there is definitely a time to take sides.

(Hey, it happens!)

We will admit that as much as we love gushing over celebrity love stories, the drama of the breakups -- especially the ones that come with juicy gossip -- is just as fun to follow. So far this year, there has been plenty of that ... and we have a feeling there's a lot more where that came from before the year is over, because it's already been a turbulent time for relationships.

Here are some of the most heartbreaking celebrity breakups of 2019 so far. We might not even be halfway through the year yet, but there have already been so many splits.

Are any of our favorites safe? Guess we'll just have to cross our fingers and find out.

  • Gigi Hadid & Zayn Malik

    No matter how meant to be Gigi and Zayn might've seemed, 2019 might be the year they finally call it quits for once and for all. In January, they broke up (again), and this time, it seems like it's for good. But who knows what the future holds? They could end up finding their way back together again someday -- wouldn't be the first time!

  • Khloe Kardashian & Tristan Thompson

    After Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal with Jordyn Woods -- which went very public -- it seems like it's all over between him and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. Khloe Kardashian no longer follows Tristan on Instagram, which is a first for her. And by all appearances, they seem to be done for good.

  • Emma Roberts & Evan Peters

    Lady Gaga might've had a huge year with all of A Star Is Born's success, but her love life? Not so much.

    According to what a source close to Demi Lovato told Entertainment Tonight, Demi and fashion designer Henry Levy ended things in March. Reportedly, she decided to cut him off when she realized she needed to keep only those who were supportive of her sobriety around her.

    Good for her!

  • Brie Larson & Alex Greenwald

    She's killing it as Captain Marvel, and now, it seems like Brie Larson is a single lady, too. Brie and fiancé Alex Greenwald ended their engagement back in January, but a source said that they remain close.

    At least it sounds like their breakup was amicable?

  • Bella Thorne & Tana Mongeau

    When Bella Thorne and YouTuber Tana Mongeau decided to end things, they kept fans in the loop in a simple way: with a tweet. 

    "Tana and I aren’t together anymore, pls stop asking," Bella tweeted, keeping it short and sweet. "We love U guys."

    And so it was over, just like that. At least she was honest?

  • Jeff Lewis & Gage Edward

    Another January split -- and a bummer for fans of Flipping Out.

    After Jeff and Gage spent almost 10 years together, they're now doing their own thing. Together, they have a 2-year-old daughter, Monroe, who they'll have to co-parent.

  • Larissa Dos Santos Lima & Colt Johnson

    Here's one for 90 Day Fiancé fans who probably weren't surprised by this news one bit. Back in January, Colt filed for divorce from Larissa, shortly after she was arrested for domestic battery. Considering their drama on the show, it makes sense that they weren't meant to be -- so it's probably for the best that they're going their separate ways.

  • MacKenzie & Jeff Bezos

    In June 2018, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos shared the announcement on his Twitter account: he and wife MacKenzie were getting a divorce. 

    "After a period of loving exploration and trial separation, we have decided to divorce and continue our shared lives as friends," he wrote. "We feel incredibly lucky to have found each other and deeply grateful for every one of the years we have been married to each other. If we had known we would separate after 25 years, we would do it all again." 

    It seems the Amazon founder's breakup wasn't without drama as Jeff Bezos reportedly cheated on his wife with actress Lauren Sanchez.
  • Shayna Taylor & Ryan Seacrest

    What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas ... or does it? On March 27, Nicolas Cage filed for an annulment from Erika Koike just four days after they secretly tied the knot. That was barely enough time for most people to realize they'd tied the knot, but it was over just as quickly as it'd begun.

    January was a big month for breakups, and it seems like this model was ready for a new start, too. Adriana and Metin called it quits in the beginning of 2019, after dating for more than a year. Maybe she was ready to be single and do a little more mingling?

    "For the last couple years we grew apart and have been moving in different directions, which is why at this time we have decided to end our marriage.

    They may have been dating for more than five years, but sadly, their relationship is over. In early 2019, Zachary and Miles called things off. In fact, they were even seen going to Oscars parties alone in February, which really drove the point home that it was over. Ouch!
