The year 2017 only just started, but already the year has already been peppered with some sad celebrity breakups. It’s still early to judge, but here’s hoping we won’t have to mourn the end of many more high-profile pairs. Scroll through to see the couples who have already called it quits this year.
1. Jemima Kirke & Micheal Mosberg
The Girls actress and her husband of seven years technically split in the Summer of 2016, but it wasn’t until January that news of their divorce was confirmed. A source revealed that Michael was seen on the exclusive dating app Raya — used by celebrities like John Mayer and Chelsea Handler — as early as July. Michael and Jemima tied the knot in 2009 and share two children, Rafaella, 6, and Memphis, 4.
2. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom
At the end of February, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom called it quits. Their reps released a statement, saying, “Before rumors or falsifications get out of hand, we can confirm that Orlando and Katy are taking respectful, loving space at this time.” Katy and Orlando began dating in January 2016 and were last spotted together at Vanity Fair‘s Oscars afterparty, just a few days before their breakup.
3. Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill
In January, Nicki confirmed her split from the rapper, telling fans via Twitter, “To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year.” The couple dated for nearly a year.
4. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sara Kapfer
After more than 20 years of marriage, Cuba Gooding Jr. reportedly filed for divorce from his wife, Sara Kapfer, in January.

Together they have three children, sons Spencer and Mason and daughter Piper.
5. Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac
Scarlett and her French journalist husband announced their split in January, but had reportedly been broken up since the Summer. The couple began dating in 2012 and tied the knot in September 2014, just a month after their daughter Rose was born.
