It was only a matter of time before we saw a celebrity couple call it quits in 2022. Still, formerly beloved couple Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet’s split less than two weeks into the year came as a shock. The actors went the public route, releasing a joint statement on Instagram, whereas model Chanel Iman and NFL player Sterling Shepard, also newly separated, have stayed mum. If only every celebrity couple could have as good of a year as Julia Fox and Kanye West have so far. Stay up to date on the year’s biggest breakups, here.

Madonna has reportedly broken up with her 28-year-old dancer boyfriend, Ahlamalik Williams, after three years together. According to The Sun, Madonna revealed to friends that she is single after the pair “amicably decided to separate.”

Madonna and Williams first started dating in 2019, but have apparently “been on and off” for awhile, according to a source. In fact, they haven’t been seen together since January. “They are still on good terms and there are no hard feelings but they are at different places with their lives,” the source said, adding that Williams has moved out of Madonna’s home.

While doing press for the upcoming season of Russian Doll, Natasha Lyonne revealed that she and Fred Armisen recently broke up after eight years together. The actress didn’t hint at when exactly the split occurred, but she did reveal the reason.

“I had been there living with Fred [Armisen] and during COVID. I honestly think we broke up because I wanted a swimming pool,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. Lyonne continued, saying she and Armisen still love each other and keep in touch, “but Freddy doesn’t like a swimming pool.”

“It might seem like a mundane reason for a breakup, but during that pandemic, you’ve got to get your laps — I’m like Burt Lancaster in The Swimmer,” she said. “So, I got myself a house with a pool out in Los Angeles. So that’s the real scandal.”

Page Six reports Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley have called off their engagement after less than two years together. Rodgers revealed he popped the question to the actress back in February 2021 while accepting the NFL MVP Award. Since then, the football player has been embroiled in a vaccine-related drama, though a source says Woodley was supportive of Rodgers throughout. Apparently, though, Rodgers recently got “cold feet” and Woodley felt neglected in their relationship, leading to the split.

Rosario Dawson and Cory Booker have called it quits after two years together, a source told People. The actress and senator originally met in summer 2018 at a political fundraiser, but didn’t start dating until months later. In May 2020, Dawson moved in with Booker in Newark, New Jersey, as he worked on his presidential campaign. Neither Booker nor Dawson have publicly commented on the situation, but according to People’s source, the pair remain close friends despite the breakup.

They reportedly plan to co-parent the toddler, who celebrated his first birthday late last year.

In mid-January, Pamela Anderson confirmed that her fourth marriage, to her former bodyguard Dan Hayhurt, had ended in divorce. The pair had been living together in Canada since their wedding at Anderson’s home on Vancouver Island in December of 2020.

Jason Momoa sent his millions of followers into shock on Wednesday, January 13, when he shared a message from himself and Lisa Bonet that no one saw coming: Sixteen years into their marriage, they have decided to part ways. “We share this not because we think it's newsworthy ~ But so that~ as we go about our lives we may do so with dignity and honesty,” the actors wrote. “The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived. We free each other ~to be who we are learning to become.”

Momoa and Bonet, who officially married in 2017, reportedly first met at a jazz club in 2005. At that point, Momoa already had feelings for Bonet, whom he grew up watching on The Cosby Show. The pair welcomed their first child, Lola, in 2007, and another named Nakoa-Wolf a year later. They concluded the message by stating their devotion to their children is “unwavering.”

Model Chanel Iman and New York Giants player Sterling Shepard officially called it quits after the latter quietly filed for divorce last June. The pair started dating in January of 2018, and by the end of that same year, Shepard had proposed. A star-studded wedding soon followed, and the pair went on to welcome two daughters, Cali Clay and Cassie Snow. Neither Iman nor Shepard has publicly commented on the split, which People reported less than a week into 2022. At least we’ve still got Tom Brady and Gisele.
