If there is one thing to be certain of, it is that celebrity romance giveth and taketh. While 2018 has already given us new couples like Amy Schumer and chef Chris Fischer, Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin, and Laura Dern and Baron Davis, it has also seen the end of some of Hollywood's most beloved pairings. In February, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux announced they would be splitting after two and a half months of marriage—only for The Crown's (now-exited) queen Claire Foy to share news of her own split just a few days later. Indeed, this year, which started off with erstwhile Brooklyn-dwellers Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff officially calling it quits, has already been eventful enough to include an entire lifespan of an unforgettable celebrity couple: Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, who now have more than a few tattoos to serve as reminders of their relationships. Here, a look back at the most devastating celebrity breakups of the year, so far.

In just five months, the pair got seemingly countless tattoos of one another; went through bottle after bottle of bleach and hair dye; made the trek to Staten Island; moved into a $16 million apartment; adopted a pet pig; made merch for each other; and prompted a new strategy at SNL. (On a much more serious note, they also dealt with some very real tragedy: the untimely death of Grande's previous partner, Mac Miller.) Davidson and Grande may have now called it quits romantically, but their bond apparently remains; according to TMZ, which broke the news, "the two still have love for each other."
