Is there anything 2016 hasnt ruined? From Tic Tacs to Kanye West to the Great American Experiment, its been a year of death and dream deferrals.

Then came 2016 like the huge cockblock that it was, leaving a trail of celebrity breakups in its destructive wake.

Its been a bad year for pussies, both civilian and celebrityMariah Carey lost her man to Scientology, and Cara Delevingne lost her girlfriend to Kristen Stewart. Hillary Clinton and Drake showed us that you can want something with all of your heart and still fall short, whether its becoming the president of the United States or getting Rihanna to admit that shes your girlfriend. And last, but certainly not least, Taylor Swift taught us that love is a game you play for attention in between album releases.

In tribute to the futile and outdated pursuit of IRL relationships, weve compiled a list of all the celebrity couples that were. Let 2016s romantic body count serve as your weekly wake-up call that monogamy is a myth and Leonardo DiCaprios Pussy Posse is back.
