Celebrity Splits 2017

This year has been full of marriages, deaths, births as well as split ups among celebrities. Did you experience any of these? One of the reasons that many people are interested in what is going on in the lives of celebrities is because they like the idea of relating to them if they are experiencing some kind of life change.

Unfortunately, there were as many split ups, if not more than births in 2017. You are well aware of Janet Jackson and Wissam Al Mana splitting up, as well as Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom. And who can forget about Tyga and Kylie Jenner splitting up this past year?

Those are just a few examples, and listed below are more examples of celebrity splits that happened this past year.
