Multiple outlets including People and "Entertainment Tonight" reported that the pair's romance started when both were still married to other people, though a source close to Ben insisted their friendship had only recently turned romantic. In November, Jen made it clear she is not ready to date. "I would not have chosen this life for myself or my kids," she said at a Hollywood Foreign Press Association conference where she was promoting her movie "The Tribes of Palos Verdes."

But space for the couple, who started dating in January 2016, does not mean that the two aren't still in contact. A source told E! News that they "still text and talk" and are still "cool" with each other. Katy and Orlando were seen together posing for a picture at the Oscars two days before the split was announced. They were also photographed paddleboarding in Santa Barbara, California, together over Labor Day weekend, though as time went on, it was clear they had not reconciled.

A different source implied to "Entertainment Tonight," however, that Alex is the one who wasn't into it anymore.

In mid-December, Halle seemingly commented on the split, posting a photo of a rope in the shape of a heart on her Instagram story captioned, "Done with love."

But it wasn't an amicable parting. Jennifer, who's serving as a coach on "The Voice" this season, was granted an order of protection after alleging abuse. According to Jennifer's court filing, she and David, who are battling over custody of son David Jr., actually split in April but continued to live together, albeit in separate bedrooms. David's attorney said the Oscar winner's claims were made to try to gain a custody advantage, as David has been the primary caretaker of their son, 8-year-old David Jr., since Jennifer travels so much for her career. "Mr. Otunga has never abused or harassed Ms. Hudson or their son, and it is unfortunate, especially in today's climate, that she would feel the need to make these false allegations against him," his lawyer's statement read in part.

He took to social media on July 5 and in an epic tirade accused her of cheating, drug use, only being with him to get back at another ex, Tyga, and lying about how she lost weight after giving birth to daughter Dream in 2016 (he says he paid $100,000 for her plastic surgery procedures). He also posted several graphic naked pictures of her on Instagram and Twitter, which were taken down by the social media sites.
