Celebrity Break-Up: Lena Dunham & Jack Antonoff Split After 5 Years Together

By Karley Kemble

In some very devastating celebrity news, Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff are no more. According to UsMagazine.com, the couple has endured a celebrity break-up. Antonoff and Dunham began their relationship in 2012, but were simply growing apart, say sources close to the pair. The split comes as a shock to some, as they appeared to be going strong just months ago, as seen through Dunham’s social media postings and on an article she penned for Variety Magazine. Hang in there, guys!

This celebrity break-up comes after a five year relationship. What are some ways to adjust after a long-term relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Breakups are always challenging, and even more so when the relationship is long in tenure. If you’re having a difficult time adjusting to your newfound single life, check out these tips from Cupid to help ease the pain:

1. Delete, delete, delete: In this digital age, we are connected to everyone digitally. Do yourself a favor and unfollow, delete, and/or even block your ex on all social media platforms. When you’re trying to get over them, seeing their face plastered everywhere you turn. It really will help the healing process!

2. Give yourself credit: Some days will be easier than others. Instead of looking at the negatives, try flipping your perspective. You only cried five times today? Cool, yesterday it was seven so that’s an improvement! You’re allowed to mourn and allowed to be sad. Let yourself feel the pain for some time.

3. Do things you love: Reclaim your independence and do things on your own. This is super important because it helps to dissociate the past from the present. Just because you and your ex went on lots of trips together doesn’t mean you have to be a hermit for all eternity! It’s totally unfair and is only a disservice to you. You deserve happiness as a single person, too!

These celebrity exes are supporting one another even after their break-up. What are some reasons to continue supporting one another after a split?

Cupid’s Advice:

Seeing this former celebrity couple get along so well is a beautiful thing, and we should follow by example! Cupid has some advice as to why you should be on a good note with an ex after a split, a good ex that is. Here are three reasons why:

1. For the children, if you have any: It is important for children to see their parents get along. It helps them through the separation process, and helps them feel balanced and in harmony. You don’t want hostility and bad vibes around!

2. Closure: Why end on a bad note? Going through a break up can be a hard time with emotions running high. However, when your ex isn’t a bad person, it’s good to leave things on a good note. Resolve your issues and get closure — it brings peace and helps you move on.

3. You never know what life brings: This is important! You may never speak or see your ex again, but then again, you may run into them again. It’s always good to keep a good relationship or reputation with as many people as possible, although it’s not always possible. Whether you run into an ex in the future in a professional setting or a social one, you would not want an awkward situation to unfold.

Taylor Swift is infamous for being dramatic about her exes. If 2017 has shown us anything, it’s that Swift is tired of being defined by the media. From winning a defining court case as a victim of sexual assault, to releasing her sixth album, Swift’s past reputation is slowly, but surely being forgotten. In the latest celebrity news, one of Swift’s closest friend Todrick Hall has revealed some vulnerable details about her most recent celebrity ex, reports EOnline.com. According to Hall, Swift would “hunch over” at the mere mention of her ex’s name – so he edited a photo of her to look like Quasimodo and told her, “You cannot turn into Quasimodo for this guy. Every time you say his name, you hunch over.” Though her most recent relationship ended with a break-up, Hall said that his bestie is happier than ever with her current beau, Joe Alwyn.

In celebrity news, even Taylor Swift fell victim to an unhealthy relationship. What are some ways to know you’re in an unhealthy relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Unhealthy relationships are emotionally draining, and it’s best to end them before things worsen. If you think you might be in an unhealthy relationship, read these tips from Cupid:

1. They’re too attached: Sure, it’s normal to be a little clingy to your partner, but there is a line that must be drawn. Make sure you are aware of the differences between healthy attachment and emotional manipulation. Phrases like “I’ll die if you ever break up with me” should never be taken lightly. Emotional manipulation is never, ever okay.

2. They constantly blame you: If your partner finds a way to spin every argument or disagreement you have and makes you feel like the bad guy, that is a telling sign of an unhealthy relationship. You are entitled to your feelings and opinions, and your partner should never invalidate you for being too sensitive or for overreacting. Beware of this if it arises.

3. You’re changing for the wrong reasons: You and your partner should bring out the best in each other. Any changes you make in your life should always be because you want to – not because you think it’s what your partner would want for you. It’s cliché, but staying true to your core values is important, and you should never lose sight of that!

Have you or somebody close to you been in an unhealthy relationship? How did it end?

Is a reunion of this celebrity couple on the horizon? We hope so! A source told UsMagazine.com that celebrity exes The Weeknd and Bella Hadid “have been talking, texting, and FaceTiming each other pretty consistently” since he and Selena Gomez broke up. The source continued to say that The Weeknd and Bella Hadid are still in love with each other.

This recently reunited celebrity couple are finding love once again. What are some benefits to rekindled love?


Cupid’s Advice:

At some point we all have wanted to get back together with an ex. It’s normal. They know you and what you like and they’re familiar and safe. While getting back together with an ex doesn’t work for everyone, there are times that it can be the exact romance that you want in life. It all depends on your past with your ex. Was the breakup irreconcilable? You alone know what’s best. Cupid has the relationship advice to help you decide:

1. You know each other: The best relationships are the ones where your partner knows you inside and out. They know your buttons and your insecurities, but they love you anyway. They know what makes you happy, how your brain works, you dreams, and how to support you. If your ex was great at all of these things, going back to that relationship can actually be a good thing.

2. You’re friends: Romantic relationships work best when there’s a solid foundation as friends. Sure, friends becoming romantic partners doesn’t always work out, but romantic partners need to be friends through it all. If your friendship never ended with your ex, consider going back. No matter what dating advice says about dating an ex again, you will know if you’re ready for that kind of thing and if it will be good for you both.

3. A chance at redemption: We’ve all messed up at relationships. We’ve all been too young, too immature, too inexperienced and regretted the outcome. When you go back to an ex, you’re still the same people, but a little older and wiser. Sometimes that’s all you need to make something a success. When you go back to an ex, make sure it’s for the right reasons and that you’re fully committed to making it work. Who knows, the person who was once an ex could become the love of your life and your future spouse. Treat them as if they could be.

Celebrity News: A-Rod’s Intelligence is Questioned by Ex-Girlfriend Anne Wojcicki’s Mom

By Rachel Sparks

The latest celebrity news is full of low insults and, interestingly, a sincere compliment. Alex Rodriguez has been under fire by celebrity ex Anne Wojcicki’s mom who, in short, called him the dullest lightbulb in the box. According to UsMagazine.comWojcicki’s mom stated that the only thing A-Rod knew how to talk about was baseball. That’s not the impression you want to leave with your future in-laws. Wojcicki’s mom did say that it was clearly evident A-Rod loved her daughter. Jennifer Lopez, now part of one of the hottest celebrity couples with A-Rod, complimented her beau by saying he can conquer anything. So, while you may not watch Big Bang Theory and debate particle theories, at the core, A-Rod is a great guy.

This celebrity news seems a little shallow to us. What are some ways to make a good impression on your partner’s parents? 


Cupid’s Advice:

If you’re trying to build a lasting relationship with your partner, impressing their family will need to be a priority eventually. It’s intimidating. You’re trying to tell the people who love your significant other more than anyone else that you’re deserving. If you’re partner has close relationship to their parents, impressing them, or lack there of, could be detrimental to future movement of your relationship. Read Cupid’s relationship advice to help you put your best face on for that monumental meeting:

1. Act like it’s an interview: because it is. Dress to impress, as they say. Turn off your cell phone, shake hands, stand with confidence and power, and follow common protocols for respect. Be on your best behavior and act like you’re getting a job, because you are. You partner’s parents expect you to take care of their baby (no matter how old they are) so you’re interviewing for the role of supportive partner.

2. Southern respect: “Sir” and “Ma’am” go a long way. Sure, major cities like New York and Seattle think these terms are out-dated, but they ultimately stand as a sign of respect. Even though we’re all adults, showing respect through the language you use sets the tone for how you’re likely to treat their kid. Plus, you’re impressing your S.O. when you treat their family with respect. Don’t worry, you’ll get rewarded afterwards.

3. Showcase your skills as a partner: We said you’re interviewing, right? Well how better can you interview than by showing off your skills as a partner? Shower your love with affection and admiration. Believe us, this will go very, very far for both your partner and their family.

Latest Celebrity News: Jennifer Garner Says She Is ‘Not Interested in Dating’ After Split From Ben Affleck

By Rachel Sparks

Former celebrity couple Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck have been apart for nearly two years, but these celebrity exes are setting a new standard for co-parenting and remaining amicable exes. Garner told UsMagazine.com that she and Affleck do have plans for a family Thanksgiving together. An insider told the magazine that Garner even helped Affleck get into a rehab center as his alcoholism took a spiral downward. The latest celebrity news is that despite, or maybe because of, the sincerity of their friendship, Garner has been on one date in the past two years since her celebrity divorce, but she’s still not ready to start dating again.

In this celebrity news, it looks like Jennifer Garner’s break-up from Ben Affleck is affecting her long-term. What are some ways to cope with a break-up so you can move on?


Cupid’s Advice:

Accepting the loss of someone meaningful in your life is painful at best and near-impossible at worse. When you’ve been with someone for as long as Garner and Affleck were together, what does life look like without that person? Moving on is hard, but at some point you want to accept the change so that your life can move forward. Here’s Cupid’s relationship advice to get you through a break-up:

1. Burn, bury, block: Sounds harsh? Unless you and your ex have kids together, moving on means letting go. Do whatever it takes for you to cut those ties with your ex. Burn the love letters, bury the stuffed zebra your ex won at the carnival, and block any way that they can get in contact with you. Doing so doesn’t mean you never loved them, it just means you love yourself enough to know you deserve happiness. Being stuck with the pain of a relationship at its end is not happiness.

2. Give happiness, get happiness: Have you ever been in a Starbucks line and been at the receiving end of pay it forward? Yeah, it’s pretty great. It also feels good to know you’ve made someone’s day better. We know it’s hard when you’re feeling down to even consider bringing joy to other people, but the proof in the facts is this: helping others creates fulfillment and happiness. If you don’t feel like dealing with people, find a way to volunteer behind the scenes; you’ll still reap the emotional rewards.

3. Focus on you: In a relationship, we often think about what the other person wants. Ever been asked where you wanted to eat and said, “What do you feel like?” Couples form a group identity, so being on your own is terrifying, but it can be exciting. Try something new, start a diet, exercise, start a new hobby, go to a concert of a band your ex hated…the list of things you can do alone is literally endless. Rock out the single status. Learning to enjoy time alone is attractive, but it also makes any future relationships that much more meaningful.

Jennifer Hudson could be facing a long and messy custody battle. In the latest celebrity newsUsMagazine.com reports the American Idol alum and current coach on The Voice is fighting her ex-fiancé David Ortunga for primary guardianship of their son, David Jr. According to Ortunga’s attorney, he has been working to settle an “amicable parenting agreement with Ms. Hudson for several weeks now,” but the estranged couple has not been able to finalize it. Hudson has previously been granted a petition for Order of Protection against her celebrity ex, citing protection for herself and for her son. The pair announced their celebrity break-up earlier this year.

This celebrity break-up seems to be getting very messy. What are some things to consider when you’re splitting with your significant other and you have a child in the picture?

Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes, relationships fizzle out. While a split is always complicated and full of emotions, if you and your estranged partner have a child, there are even higher chances for issues to arise. If you are breaking up with your partner and you share kids, Cupid has some things for you to consider:

1. Be ready to co-parent: You and your partner have a shared responsibility for your kids. If you are splitting up, you should figure out how you’d like to continue raising your kids. Ideally, this should be done without the help of layers and a court. Figure out a system that works best for your lives and stick to it.

2. Adopt a “kids come first” mindset: Establishing this mentality is important after a split. Regardless of the differences between you and your partner, it’s important to remember that your kids come first. This will help you in times of conflict and stress. Sometimes, you’ll both have to swallow your pride and put on a happy face for the sake of your kids’ well-being.

3. Keep it professional: Never badmouth your partner in front of your kids. No matter the situation, it’s important to voice your negative opinions in private. By projecting your feelings about your ex onto your kids, you could cause long-term emotional issues for them. Let your children form their own opinions and conclusions, and make sure you’re there for them when they need you.
