He's moved back to his hometown in South Carolina, and friends are praying this is the end of her journey with him. … She's trying to move past the pain and focus on her future."

She listed May 22 as their date of separation, People magazine reported. The news comes nine months after the "Godzilla" actor revealed in an interview with Playboy magazine that, according to him, "swinging has saved our marriage." He explained at the time, "We have different speeds, and we argue over it constantly. But it's better than feeling unheard and alone and that you have to scurry in the shadows."
On May 29 — after many months of speculation that their marriage was in trouble — and after they raised eyebrows by quarantining in different states amid the coronavirus pandemic — Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich announced they'd split after nearly three years of marriage. "We have lovingly and carefully taken the time we have needed to arrive at our decision to separate," they told People magazine in a joint statement. "We share an abundance of love and respect for one another and will continue to lead with our hearts from that place. We kindly request your compassion and respect for our privacy moving forward." A source further told People, "It's over, it's been over for a while, and it's time to just call it what it is — and it is over. There is honestly no ill will. He loves her. She loves him. … But they both understand they are not meant to go through their lives as husband and wife to each other." The source added that realizing they were "perfectly happy and fine being apart" during COVID-19 lockdown helped convince the dancer-actress and the former hockey star that it was time to end things.
Two months after she helped nurse him through COVID-19, "The Bachelor" season 23 couple Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph took to social media on May 29 to announce that they'd called it quits after more than a year together. "First off, I want to say this is one of the hardest things I have had to share as neither one of us is quite ready to talk about it yet. However, because our relationship is such a public one, our silence on the matter has been speaking for us," Cassie wrote on Instagram. "Colton and I have broken up, but have decided to remain a part of each others lives. With all that we have gone through, we have a special bond that will always be there. I love Colton very much and have an enormous amount of respect for him. We have both learned and grown so much these past couple years, and will always have each others back. Always." Colton also shared the news, "It's been a crazy few months to say the least, Cass and I have been doing a lot of self-reflecting. Sometimes people are just meant to be friends – and that's okay. We both have grown immensely and been through so much together – so this isn't the end of our story, it's the start of a whole new chapter for us." A source told People magazine the pair — who earlier this year admitted they'd briefly split in August 2019 — just weren't on the same page: "Colton really wanted to settle down and get married — he's been ready for a long time. And Cassie just wasn't ready. They both knew it wasn't going to work."
On May 25, Page Six broke the news that "Riverdale" co-stars and real-life loves Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse had quietly ended their three-year romance before coronavirus lockdowns began.

On May 18, following weeks of speculation about the state of his marriage — photos had revealed he and his wife appeared to be quarantining separately amid the COVID-19 pandemic — Brian Austin Green confirmed that he and Megan Fox have indeed split after nearly 10 years of marriage and more than 15 years as a couple. The "Beverly Hills, 90201" alum explained on his "…With Brian Austin Green" podcast that late last year, after Megan returned home from filming "Midnight in the Switchgrass," she confirmed what he was already feeling — that there was a growing distance between them. "She said, 'I realized when I was out of the country working alone that I feel more like myself and I liked myself better during that experience and I think that might be something worth trying for me,'" he recalled on the episode titled "Context." "We talked about it a little more and said, 'Let's separate for a bit…' and so we did." He later added, "Since the end of , we've really been trying to be apart and figure out what life is now. It's a big change for both of us." Brian, who shares three boys with Megan, also addressed seeing photos of his estranged wife spending time with co-star Machine Gun Kelly earlier in May and insisted that "cheating" was not a factor in their split. "I don't want people to think that [they] are villains or I was a victim in any way with any of this — because I wasn't," he said. Megan previously filed for divorce in 2015, though she and Brian reconciled the following year after she conceived their son Journey. Brian has again left the door open for a romantic reunion, acknowledging that their paths have "gone in separate ways for now. They could come back together. They may not. We don't know."
Model-turned-actress Jaime King filed to divorce filmmaker Kyle Newman in Los Angeles on May 18 after 12 and a half years of marriage.

Details of the split soon emerged when Kyle — who'd been living with their two kids in Pennsylvania for the last few months while Jaime was solo in L.A. — requested an emergency hearing on May 22. TMZ reported that Kyle alleged Jaime has a long-running opioid and alcohol addiction that makes it dangerous for the kids to be in her care and asked for sole physical and shared legal custody. A judge shot down his emergency request, saying the exes can argue about it in court at a later date, though decided the boys will remain with their dad in Pennsylvania.
On May 21, Us Weekly reported that, according to a source, Scott Disick and Sofia Richie were "on a break" as he "straightens himself out more" in the wake of recent mental health issues. "Scott is in an OK place right now and is trying to get better and focus on work, but he has to prove himself," said the source, adding that "a big part of why" the father of three went to rehab earlier in May "was because Sofia wanted him to work on himself." But less than a week later, multiple media outlets reported that the couple of nearly three years had officially called it quits. On May 27, Page Six reported that, according to a source, the relationship simply "ran its course," although other issues — like Scott's "past traumas" — contributed to the breakup. "Scott had gone back to his old ways, and Sofia got fed up," said the source, adding that Scott's relationship with ex Kourtney Kardashian — the mother of his three kids with whom he'd just celebrated his 37th birthday, sans Sofia — also played a role in the split.
On May 13, TMZ reported that Mary-Kate Olsen and husband Olivier Sarkozy had split after less than five years of marriage.

It also came to light that the former child star had tried to legally end their marriage on April 17 but was told New York City courts were not accepting filings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. "She claims [he] is trying to force her out [or their apartment, because he terminated their lease without her knowledge," TMZ explained, citing court documents. In her legal paperwork, Mary-Kate also requested their prenuptial agreement be enforced. On May 25 — the first day courts reopened — she was finally able to lodge her divorce filing electronically.

"Today" show contributor Jill Martin revealed on May 17 that after three years together, she and fiancé Erik Brooks have split nearly a year after they got engaged.

This is a concept I've been thinking about often right now, because I'm very much single, and I've chosen to be single for a while," she said.

In February, Peter and Madison reunited and decided to give it another go. They presented a united front during the live March 10 "After the Final Rose" special — their first time seeing each other since their brief February reunion — and said that they weren't engaged but planned to continue dating.

Also a highlight was trying my best to be a good dad to her daughter. Something that will leave a huge hole in my heart forever.
