10 Celebrity Couples Who Broke Up and Reunited Again
If you decide that you and your ex are meant to be with each other, it’s not going backward but the new way to happiness. Some celebrity couples, like Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom and Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, proved this idea to be true. It’s never too late to start fixing mistakes if you’ve met your true love.
We at Bright Side believe in true love and soulmates and would like to share 10 celebrity couples who are brilliant examples of how reuniting after a breakup can be the right choice.
1. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck
Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were a couple in the early 2000s but eventually called off the engagement and broke up in early 2004. Now, after many years, they’ve decided to try again.
A source close to Lopez shared that she and Affleck “are inseparable, and it’s going really well. [She] has never been happier and knows it was meant to be.” Jennifer and her kids recently spent time together with Ben: “He’s totally won the family over with his charm.”
2. Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber officially confirmed that he was dating Hailey on January 3, 2016, but by the time August came around, they’d decided to break up. 2 years of non-speaking passed and they started to talk as friends.
Their relationship seemed complicated and they both dated different people, but finally, in July 2018, Justin made a proposal and Hailey said, “Yes!”
3. Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid
After Courteney Cox got a divorce, she met McDaid, and soon after, in June 2014, they got engaged. At the end of 2015, they briefly broke up, but it seemed like real love could overcome any obstacles.
They couldn’t be separated and got back together: “I definitely have learned a lot, and no matter what, I will be a better person from that breakup, even though it was so brutal.”
4. Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik
Zayn and Gigi started seeing each other in November 2015, and after some time, their relationship got serious and very romantic. Despite this, their love also needed to endure a brief breakup to make them realize they were meant for each other.
The couple split in June 2016. Just weeks later, they decided that the relationship deserved another chance, and they were totally right.
5. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom
Perry and Bloom met for the first time at a party in 2016. They got attracted to each other immediately. The same year, the singer made it official by posting a pic on Instagram of them spending time together in Cannes.
After 10 months of dating, Perry decided to call off the relationship with Bloom. Some time apart was needed to help them understand that they loved each other for real. In 2017, Perry and Bloom started appearing together again, and they went on vacations to Prague and Vaticano together.
Finally, in May 2018, Perry confirmed that she was no longer single, and less than a year later, they got engaged.
6. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
We love this couple, but they also had a moment when they needed to test out a breakup. They met at a birthday party that Timberlake was throwing. After a year of dating, in 2011, the couple decided that they needed to split: “It was completely mutual and they both decided it was time to move on.”
Before a year had passed, Timberlake confessed that Biel was the most significant person to him, and he proposed to her.
7. Rose Leslie and Kit Harington
The couple met for the first time while shooting the second season of Game of Thrones. They got on as friends but later, they started to date. In 2013, a source confirmed that the couple had broken up and Leslie started to date another guy.
After their on-screen love had ended, Leslie and Harington continued to communicate, but the final reunion happened in 2014. Although Harington denied that they were dating, people spotted them together. In April 2016, the couple went public with their official relationship.
8. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have been together for more than 12 years. But, believe it or not, they broke up after dating for about 3 months because he wanted to date other people. It didn’t take him long to realize he made a mistake, and Shepard came back to Bell a few days later.
9. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas met for the first time more than 23 years ago. The 25-year difference in their age was never a question for them. Everything went well and they got married rather quickly.
In 2013, they separated after 13 years of marriage to take “some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage.” And they found their way back to being happy together.
10. Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine
The couple was first spotted in June 2012 while on vacation in Hawaii. In May, Levine and Prinsloo broke up: “Behati was in and out, but they finally ended it.” After some time, they changed their decision. This choice was right, and now they’re a happily married couple with 2 kids.
