In a world where there is so much controversy, it is an irrefutable fact that couples diverge each year, year-round. And this year is no exception. Not everyone who has kissed at midnight on December 31 will repeat the ritual if the ball falls in 2019 and begins in 2020. People whose names you will never know.
But sometimes it happens Kylie Jenner or Miley Cyrus or Jeff Bezo's name everyone knows. (Or at least we'll bet you know at least one out of every three, whatever).
When the sun prepares for another year – in fact, a whole decade – it's time to take stock of the celebrities who have decided to end the year 2019 without the person with whom they are it started.
Not all of these pairs. The list of those who flit in and out of the other's life is almost endless. Instead, here's a sample of separations that were either completely shocked or at least seemed to come out of nowhere at that particular time.
You may have predicted all, some or none, but here were the divisions at the end of an era of 2019:
