There’s trouble in paradise for one celebrity couple this week! According to UsMagazine.com, Demi Lovato and MMA fighter boyfriend, Guilherme “Bomba” Vasconcelos, have officially called it quits. The celebrity exes first started seeing one another in July of last year, shortly after Lovato and long-time boyfriend Wilmer Valderrama had their celebrity break-up. Although Lovato and Vasconcelos were “just having fun” a source close to Lovato confessed, the two rekindled their Hollywood relationship in January of 2017 and have since been verbal on social media about their celebrity love story. Lovato gushed over her celebrity relationship to TV talk show host Ellen in April, saying, “I’m very happy. Life is really good.” So what happened to break apart this famous celebrity couple? A source close to the exes claims, “It wasn’t a dramatic split. Bomba is a good guy, but the relationship just ran its course.”

This relationship has ended up a celebrity break-up. What are some ways to know your relationship is done for good?

Cupid’s Advice:

Break-ups are never fun, but Cupid is here with the top tips on how to know when your relationship has officially run its course:

1. When the end feels inevitable: If you feel as though you’re just counting down the days until something snags and you guys finally have the final fight that leads to the demise of your couplehood, it may be already time to call it quits. Relationships generally shouldn’t feel like they have a looming expiration date, and if you feel as though any good times you have are constantly overshadowed with your gut-feeling that this relationship isn’t going to last, then you should trust your instincts.

2. When neither of you is upset: If you feel as though your relationship has deflated to the point that neither of you is particularly invested in it continuing, then do yourself both a favor and cut it off so you can go find something that really fills you both with passion. If you can broach the topic of your break-up without either of you feeling like you’re really losing anything of value, then it’s probably time to cut the cord and get on with your lives, separately.

3. When you feel consistently unhappy: If you’re in a relationship where you feel as though you’re always waiting for the “good time” and the moment when you’ll really feel like you and your partner are clicking, then take a step back and consider why that is. It could be that your relationship isn’t really what you want it to be, and that could be because of the person you’re in that relationship with. Remember, you don’t need to have a million reasons to leave someone, you just need one good one, and being consistently unhappy in your relationship is a great reason to call it quits permanently.

There’s nothing, but trouble for former celebrity couple Jodie Sweetin and Justin Hodak this week in celebrity news! According to UsMagazine.com, Hodak has recently been charged with illegal possession of a deadly weapon and threatening a witness with force. He will serve almost seven years in prison, and will then be on probation for five years following his release. Now that the celebrity exes have called it quits following Hodak’s several arrests and violation of the restraining order Sweetin took out against him, Hodak must not post any photos or videos of Sweetin or risk violating the terms of a protective order. He must also complete a 52-week program on domestic violence upon the conclusion of his sentence. Sweetin is a celebrity parent to two children, Beatrix and Zoie, from previous marriages, but Hodak and Sweetin have no children together.

This celebrity news has us troubled. What are some ways to deal with a partner who gets into legal trouble?

Cupid’s Advice:

There’s no way around it, if you’ve ever had a partner or ex who got involved in some troubling illegal activities, that’s bound to lead to tension in your relationship and in your lives. Here are Cupid’s top tips on how to deal with a partner in legal trouble:

1. Consider the offense: Of course, when it comes to a brush with the law, there are varying degrees of legal offenses. You should react differently based on whether your partner has, for example, been caught planning and executing elaborate heists or shoplifting petty items at a drugstore. So first things first, when a partner gets involved in some kind of crime, stop and consider the offense. It’s important to recognize the nuances of legality and while many crimes should give you serious pause about continuing the relationship, others may be something you can work through as a couple.

2. Make sure you and your children are safe: Of course, sometimes the answer is clear already. If a partner has been charged with violent tendencies, domestic abuse, or owning a violent weapon and you feel that you are in some kind of danger, act immediately. Go to the police and express your concerns, and then reach out to family and friends to help you through this difficult time, whether that be by staying at your place or opening their home to you so you have a place you can go where you can feel safe and secure. The first priority in situations like that should be making sure that you and any children you have are safe so that you can start re-building your lives without the negative influence of your ex.

3. Talk to your partner: If the situation is such that you are surprised by the alleged crimes your partner is accused of, try getting a moment to talk to them. Many times if the offense is not major, you will have the opportunity to pay bail and speak to your partner as a “free” individual once more. Have an open conversation with your partner and ask them why they did what they did. Be honest about how hurt and betrayed you feel by their dishonest actions and then figure out if there’s a way you can work through it together, if that’s what you want.

By Noelle Downey

Former celebrity couple Scheana Shay and Mike Shay have officially split, with UsMagazine.com reporting that their celebrity divorce has recently been finalized. The former spouses are settling their affairs now, with reality TV star Scheana paying Mike 50,000 dollars in order to make sure that their assets remain balanced and equitable. While Scheana once accused Mike of cheating on the hit reality show, Vanderpump Rules, the celebrity exes seem to have buried the hatchet for now, with both claiming that, “While we have made the difficult decision to move forward separately, our story will continue on through the love and mutual respect that we have cultivated throughout our 15-year friendship.” Their joint statement on their celebrity break-up went on to state that they will continue to, “support each other’s personal happiness and professional success” despite the fact that they both admitted they had “failed at [their] marriage.”

This much-talked-about split has ended up in celebrity divorce. What are some ways you know your relationship cannot be fixed?

Cupid’s Advice:

When it comes to break-ups, there’s no easy way to know just when you and your partner should call it quits. However, Cupid is here with some sure signs you should look for that your relationship may be going belly-up:

1. You no longer enjoy spending time together: Every couple, no matter how strong, goes through rough patches. However, if you can’t think of the last time that you and your partner spent time together and you parted ways feeling happy and satisfied, that’s something to take seriously. If you two aren’t that happy to see each other even on your best days, that’s a huge red flag signaling that it may be time to say goodbye.

2. You argue and never seem to really make-up: Healthy debate and arguments are not bad signs in a relationship; in fact, it’s good if you’re able to disagree with your partner and recognize that conflict is a natural part of any relationship. On the other hand, if you two seem to be having the same fight over and over again that never really gets resolved, you should take a long, hard look at how you’re functioning as a couple. If arguments always end with slammed doors and the silent treatment instead of a long talk and reconciliation, that’s not a good sign. It may be time to consider that the best thing for both of you is to say goodbye.

3. You’re the only one compromising: Relationships are all about compromise, the push and pull of two human beings trying to work together to create something beautiful. If you feel as if you’re always the one who is changing themselves to fit your partner’s standards, ask yourself if they’re really holding up their end of the bargain when it comes to the relationship. Do you feel like you are in an equitable partnership? Do you both compromise regularly or does one or the other of you always bend to the other one’s way? If you feel as though they’re never willing to sacrifice what they want for the good of the relationship, this might be a sign that the relationship has run its course.

In celebrity news, Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashain are putting their differences aside and placing their celebrity baby, Dream, above everything. A source close to the celebrity exes told EOnline.com exclusively that “they are co-parenting and independently working on themselves but they’re more cordial now than they have been, which is why they [have] hung out recently.” Kardashian continues to visit Dream on a weekly basis two months after the couple split and went their separate ways. The source claims Rob is “always happy to see her.” The Arthur George sock designer claims that he finally understand why his mother, Kris Jenner, had so many kids in a recent Instagram post saying, “Now I understand why my mom had 6 kids!! Babies are the greatest gift of Life!!”

These celebrity exes have experienced quite a bit of drama. What are some ways to get along with your ex?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s never easy to get along with an ex, but sometimes you have to make it work. If the two of you share a child, like Rob and Chyna, it’s very important that you sustain a civil relationship with one another. With this in mind, Cupid’s going to help make this transition an easier one with some relationship advice:

1. Seek balance: If you and your ex share children together it’s important to seek balance in your relationship with one another. Put your negative feelings aside and put your children first. This way, it’ll be easier for you and your ex to get along.

2. Stop bringing up the past: It’s only going to make being civil harder! The relationship is over so there’s no need to keep bringing up the factors that made it end. If you keep focusing on the negative, you’ll never reach the positive aspect of your “new” relationship the two of you are striving for.

3. Forgive: This is extremely difficult depending on the severity of your break up. But, in order to be civil with your ex, this has to be done. Once you forgive and forget a huge weight will be lifted off your shoulders. You have no idea how freeing this can be!

During the latest episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Scott Disick revealed that he did in fact propose to Kourtney Kardashian after he bought a ring years ago. According to UsMagazine.com, Disick confessed to the proposal after Kourtney’s famous sister Kim Kardashain asked if her sister ever knew there was a ring. “I don’t think we told anybody, actually,” revealed the reality star. “It was somewhat cute and then we just got scared about, like, media and this and that and we were like, ‘Let’s just put the ring aside and we’ll talk about it another day.’ Never spoke about it again.” Disick also proposed to Kardashian during a celebrity vacation to Costa Rica without the ring and was rejected a second time. The now celebrity exes split back in 2015 after Disick was spotted getting a bit too comfortable partying in the South of France with with his ex girlfriend.

This celebrity news has us surprised! What are some factors that might lead you to turn down a marriage proposal?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Marriage is a wonderful thing, but it’s not for everyone. If your significant other proposes to you, don’t say yes just because you feel like you have to. There are many factors that go into whether you’re ready for marriage or not. So, what may lead to a rejection? Cupid’s here to help with some relationship advice:

1. You’ve been questioning the relationship: You have to be fully committed to your relationship if you’re even thinking about marriage. If you’ve been back and forth about how you feel about the person you’re with, marriage is definitely not in the books for you two.

2. It’s an apology proposal: You’ve seen movies… boy messes up, girl wants to leave him, boy feels bad and proposes, girl accepts and finally all is good with the world. Do not fall for this! If your significant other is only proposing to you because they messed up it’s not a true proposal. It’s just an easy fix.

3. You’re not the “marriage” type: And that’s fine. Not everyone has to get married to live a happy life! Like Kourtney Kardashian, you may feel perfectly comfortable with just dating. This doesn’t mean you don’t love your significant other, you’re just not about that married life.

Have you ever turned down a marriage proposal? Comment below with what lead you to the decision.

According to UsMagazine.com, Harry Styles recently opened up to Rolling Stone about his romance with Taylor Swift — and he had nothing but nice things to say about his celebrity ex. Addressing the photos of them together in Central Park on their second date, he shares, “When I see photos from that day, I think: Relationships are hard, at any age. And adding in that you don’t really understand exactly how it works when you’re 18, trying to navigate all that stuff didn’t make it easier. He elaborates further by saying, “I mean, you’re a little bit awkward to begin with. You’re on a date with someone you really like. It should be that simple, right? It was a learning experience for sure. But at the heart of it — I just wanted it to be a normal date.” He even appreciates that Swift penned numerous songs about their former celebrity relationship and says, “I like tipping a hat to the time together.”

Harry Styles thinks his romance with celebrity ex Taylor Swift was a learning experience. What are some ways past relationships can help you with future relationships?

Cupid’s Advice:

Taking a cue from these celebrity exes, every failed relationship can teach us something when it comes to future love. So what can you learn from your former partners? Consider this dating advice below:

1. You realize what you want: When you’re single, it’s hard to know what you want and need from a partner. However, a relationship — even one that ultimately doesn’t last — will show you just what you’re looking for when it comes to love. Look at what worked and what didn’t and apply those insights to your next relationship.

2. You understand the importance of compromise: Being in a relationship means sharing your life with someone, and sharing your life with someone requires a lot of compromise — a hard lesson to learn when you’re single and your world revolves around you.

3. You learn to trust: Trusting your heart with someone is no easy task. This relationship may have failed, but it was still an exercise in giving your heart away — and surviving the heartache. Next time around, you’ll know more quickly if someone is right for you and if they deserve your trust and love.

Celebrity exes Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were spotted smiling serenely as they exited a church service they attended together on Easter Sunday with their three children, according to UsMagazine.com. Garner filed for divorce from Affleck on April 13th, with both of them deciding to pursue a joint custody agreement of their three children, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel. Although Affleck had been living in the guest house since the couple separated in June 2015, he will now be making the move to a new home as the celebrity divorce moves forward. A source close to Affleck reported it’s important to him to find a place near Garner’s house so they can both successfully “continue to co-parent as they have been” adding that Affleck is expected to move out “when he finds the right place.”

Talk about being amicable during a celebrity divorce! What are some ways to keep life normal for your kids during a split?

Cupid’s Advice:

While a divorce is enough to threaten the future of any family dynamic, Garner and Affleck seem to be able to put aside their differences to lend their kid’s lives some normality during this transitional period. Here are Cupid’s top tips on how to emulate these sensible celebs and keep your kids secure during your separation:

1. Present a united front: Just like this former celebrity couple, it’s important to focus on presenting a united front and creating a viable co-parenting experience for your children. Whether that means attending church together, having a family dinner once a week or a monthly family movie night, remind your kids that you can still function as a family unit and that you and your ex are still capable of coming together for their benefit and security.

2. Develop healthy coping mechanisms: If you’re dealing with the pain of your divorce in unhealthy ways, your children will feel the strain of those negative behaviors too. A source on Affleck recently reported that he was “doing great” and was in “a healthy place” following his treatment in rehab for alcoholism. Just like this celebrity parent, focus on making sure you’re dealing with any issues you have behind the scenes to that your children can feel safe knowing you’re not going to fall apart at a moment’s notice.

3. Communicate with your kids: While it’s true that your children shouldn’t have to handle hearing every detail of your divorce, you may also find that opening up clear lines of communication and talking your child through this difficult time will be immensely helpful in getting them to open up and feel safe with you. By talking to them honestly about how you’re feeling and how they’re feeling, you can validate their emotions and make sure they’re dealing with any sadness or anger they might feel in healthy ways.

Garner and Affleck seem determined to make things work when it comes to co-parenting their children. Do you have any tips on co-parenting that you’ve learned since splitting with your ex? Let us know in the comments!
