We have collectively left 2022 behind, and some of our celebrity faves entered the new year with a new status: single.
Missed all the breakups of 2022? Here’s a rundown of the romances, marriages, and lil’ flings that didn’t make it past the 2023 countdown! And while some are enjoying the single market, others have already started mingling! So keep scrolling to see which couples we said goodbye to!
T.J. Holmes & Marilee Fiebig
T.J. Holmes ended his 2022 embroiled in a workplace affair scandal that had the innanet in shambles for weeks! The Good Morning America host and his wife, Marilee Fiebig, left their union in 2022 after it was revealed that Holmes and his co-host Amy Robach had a months-long romance.
The pair recently filed for divorce–with some reports saying Holmes filed the paperwork. They share a daughter named Sabine, who they welcomed three years after tying the knot in 2010.
Sources recently told E! News that T.J. and Amy were staying out of the spotlight while ABC investigates their relationship. However, one day after the divorce news, photos surfaced of the GMA hosts sharing smooches, smiling, and embracing in Miami.
Summer Walker & Lvrd Pharoh
Summer Walker recently gave birth to twins, and her former boyfriend, Larry, also known as Lvrd Pharoh, didn’t miss a moment of his children’s birth.
The singer revealed the end of their relationship in early November, praising Larry’s fatherly side and confirming that there are “no hard feelings” between them. She later released a video of them cackling over an alleged $200,000 sexual proposal. Fans first learned the former pair were expecting in June, but Summer denied that she was having twins early on.
Derrick Jaxn & Da’Naia Jackson
Just days before Christmas, relationship coach Derrick Jaxn announced his divorce from Da’Naia Jackson. The news came less than two years after Derrick publicly admitted to cheating on Da’Naia with multiple women.
Hours before his divorce announcement, Tasha K released exclusive images of Derrick close to a woman in Miami.
“Earlier this year, after much prayer, counseling, nad deep consideration, we decided to go our separate ways and filed for divorce,” Jaxn wrote. “Making the decision to file was one of the hardest decisions of my life, but I’ve found peace knowing that our mission of rasing healthy children, starting with healthy and whole parents, is still being accomplished.
But it’s unclear when exactly the couple split, given that in November, she went viral for randomly cursing anyone, in the Lord’s name, that speaks ill of her, Derrick, and their union.
Tia Mowry & Cory Hardrict
Tia Mowry may have filed for divorce in October, but she and Cory Hardrict didn’t let the paperwork stop them from enjoying Christmas Day together. In her words, “family is family,” and the former couple shares two children, Cree and Cairo.
After 14 years married, Mowry cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split. However, Mowry told fans on social media that her decision is “not without sadness” but that they plan to “maintain a friendship as [they] co-parent.”
Soon after the filing was revealed, Hardrict denied cheating caused their romance to end. Despite the divorce, Tia later shared that she views her marriage as a success.
Lisa Bonet & Jason Momoa
While relationships were ending all 2022, a split is how Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa kicked off the start of the year. The former couple, who share two children, announced their divorce in January after 16 years together and nearly five years married.
DJ Mustard & Chanel McFarlene
After less than two years of marriage and more than a decade together, DJ Mustard filed for divorce from Chanel McFarlene in May. He cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. In the filing, Mustard requested joint legal and physical custody of their children Kauner, Kylan, and Kody.
“Anyone that followed me or knows me personally knows my family means the world to me,” Chanel said after the filing made headlines. “I’ve dedicated 12 loyal years, and it is more than heartbreaking to see things end.”
Mustard took to social media days after filing to shut down rumors that he or Chanel cheated. By the end of June, Chanel shared that she had secured her first solo home.
In November, Chanel seemingly fired online shots at Mustard, saying he doesn’t get “cool points for f***ing over your day 1.”
Raymond Santana & Deelishis
A union that surprised us when it began did the same at its end. In March, Raymond Santana, one of New York’s Exonerated 5, filed for divorce from reality TV star Deelishis. In the divorce filing, Santana listed their relationship as “irretrievably broken with no hope of reconciliation” less than two years after tying the knot.
News of the filing hit headlines after Deelishis had accused Raymond of being a “narcissist who is a complete liar and a cheat.” According to the legal paperwork, they had been separated since November 2021, and both agreed on no alimony.
In September, Raymond said he gave his “heart to someone who didn’t deserve” or “love” him.
Crystal Smith & Ne-Yo
In late July, Crystal Smith gave the world an intimate look at her marriage to Ne-Yo–and the way she painted it, the union was everything but genuine romance.
She accused the singer of being a narcissist while having unprotected sex with multiple women throughout their eight-year relationship–including their six-year marriage. Ne-Yo reacted to Crystal’s post by liking it and then asking for privacy on Twitter.
According to TMZ, Crystal alleged in the August 1 divorce filing that Ne-Yo fathered a child outside their marriage. The former couple share three kids together.
She listed their date of separation as July 22–days before her public blast and their social media shots at each other. In the filing, Crystal sought temporary and permanent alimony, child and spousal support, and $25,000 to cover her legal fees.
By September, Ne-Yo fired back, suggesting Crystal’s affiliation with him boosted her “ability to procure stable and consistent employment” now and after the finalized divorce. Ne-Yo also sought joint custody and asked the judge to consider Crystal’s “lack of contribution” to the purchase and maintenance of assets during its division.
Tom Brady & Gisele Bündchen
After much speculation (and reports) of a marriage on the rocks, Gisele Bündchen filed for divorce from Tom Brady in October. Gisele ended 13 years of marriage without any contest from Brady–whose die-hard commitment to his NFL career is rumored to be the source of their end.
The former pair later released statements on social media. Tom revealed their decision to split was reached “amicably and with gratitude for the time spent together.” Gisele said they grew apart while also expressing the same gratitude as Tom.
Cynthia Bailey & Mike Hill
Fans speculated about the breakdown of Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill‘s marriage in October. The former couple, who wed in 2020, let their second wedding anniversary pass with no celebratory posts. And the innanet streets didn’t miss that beat, especially after a video surfaced of Mike doubling as a pole for a dancer.
Soon after, Cynthia and Mike confirmed their split in joint and individual statements. They revealed that “no one is to blame” for the separation and that they “remain good friends.”
Bailey also said that Hill coming into her life was destiny but that she couldn’t be more excited for the next chapter. Hill later revealed that they had contemplated splitting “for the last few months.”
About three weeks after the divorce announcement, Cynthia said the final straw was that they “weren’t friends anymore” and chose to pump the breaks before things got worse.
Miguel & Nazanin Mandi
Miguel and Nazanin Mandi gave their fans hope for their love in early 2022 after they shared spicy, couple-like photos in February. They had previously revealed their decision to part ways in September 2021, so the flicks (and the accompanying captions) made it seem like their relationship was on the up.
Months later, in October, the couple called it quits again–ending a 17-year relationship and revealing they’d been apart “for some time now.” Naz reportedly filed the paperwork, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the cause for their fizzled fire.
Hazel-E & De’von Waller
Though Hazel-E and De’von Waller appeared to have a loving relationship, Hazel shattered that imagery in November. The former Love & Hip Hop accused her husband of cheating and abusing her and their two-year-old daughter Ava Dior. However, the mother of one revealed she hung on to the 2019 marriage because she “was trying to avoid raising [Ava] alone.”
In addition to being unfaithful, Hazel alleged that Waller gave Ava a black eye and shared images of what appeared to be bruises on the toddler’s face and arms. She also shared a video of a seemingly frustrated De’von changing Ava’s diaper.
“I want me back, I don’t want to be controlled. I don’t want to be told what to wear, what to do, what I can say, what I can’t say, what music I can record…who I can talk to. I’m just tired of not being myself. I’m tired of mental abuse,” Hazel-E shared.
Soon after dropping her allegations, Hazel-E also revealed that she filed an order of protection against De’von to protect her and their daughter.
De’von responded to Hazel-E’s allegations, including that he once replaced her water with bleach in several posts. He also repeatedly expressed his love for their daughter.
In early December, The Shade Room exclusively revealed that Hazel-E filed for divorce from Waller and is seeking full custody of Ava.
Kimbella Venderhee & Juelz Santana
Days before the end of 2022, Kimbella Venderhee took to Instagram with her buns glistening in the sun and a lil’ message. She wrote, “next chapter…SINGLE” in the caption of her curvy and cheeky flicks.
But Kimbella gave no additional information about the alleged split from her husband, Juelz Santana. In the comment section of Kimbella’s post, she pinned three comments about the breakup, but it’s unclear if she’s already filed for divorce.
The pinned comments:
“Single? Oh, hell no. Now, what in the world did Juelz do to his #1 support system while in jail, beautiful woman, hustler, and great mother??? YOU KNOW WHAT SMFH”
“Nooooo….well, enjoy this chapter! You tried hard with your marriage…”
All jokes aside, she did hold him down for a long time multiple times. When is enough enough. I hope you only blessing moving forward.”
Juelz hasn’t publicly commented on the split, but Kimbella shared another solo shot captioned, “getting back to myself,” following her announcement.
Nia Long & Ime Udoka
Like T.J., Ime Udoka got inappropriately romantic at work and lost his finacée Nia Long, along with his head coaching gig, as a result.
— Boston Celtics (@celtics) September 23, 2022
A rep for Nia, who welcomed a son during her 13-year relationship with Udoka, confirmed the split in a December statement to PEOPLE.
“The situation is unfortunate and painful, but Nia is focusing on her children and rebuilding her life,” the rep said.
At the end of November, Nia expressed that she was “thankful for the gift of new places and spaces.”
Love Is Blind Stars Iyanna McNeely & Jarette Jones And Raven Ross & SK Alagbada
It turns out love may be blind after all. Two couples from Netflix’s hit dating show have called it quits this year.
Iyanna McNeely and Jarette Jones announced their separation and upcoming divorce in August. The split came about a year after the couple tied the knot in a ceremony during the season two finale of Love Is Blind. Iyanna officially filed for divorce in October, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the cause of their split. At the time, she asked the judge to enforce a global settlement that she and Jones agreed to, which addresses their support and asset allocations.
Season three contestants Raven Ross and Sikiru ‘SK’ Alagbada announced their split in late November amid SK cheating rumors.
“We are saddened to announce that we have decided to go our separate ways. Due to on-going legal proceedings surrounding these allegations, we cannot provide additional details and ask that you please respect our privacy during this hard time,” a joint statement released on Raven’s Insta-Story said.
And that’s a wrap on relationships that ended in 2022!
Wishing everyone good luck as they navigate the single life (and mingling) life in 2023! But, roomies, is there a couple you hope will reconcile in the new year? Let us know in the comments!
