Bust out the tissues, because L'OFFICIEL is looking back at the saddest celebrity splits of the year.

The year of 2020 has been nothing short of a rollercoaster with several of the screws missing, only made worse by your favorite celebrity couples announcing their breakups. Some of these couples parted ways before quarantine began, and some couldn't handle being stuck in the same house together for months at a time. While a few splits on this list might push you to believe love is dead (looking at you, Vanessa and Austin), a number of stars have already moved onto new relationships. In the words of the musical genius Ariana Grande, "Thank you, next."
