Things got turned upside down in the land down under when this Australian power couple called off their relationship in 2018. After a brief (and we assume fiery) affair way back in 2008, Ruby and Jessica reconnected in 2016 at a gathering for marriage equality. The old flame must have flickered hard as they soon found their heels over their heads again. Distance finally got the better of them as Jessica remained in Australia while Ruby was based in the United States.
Ruby didn’t share too many details about the breakup apart from it being “relatively amicable.” But Jessica later revealed that the spit was anything but. Ruby followed up by saying that telling the truth and exposing her ex was high on her agenda too.
Elliot Page & Samantha Thomas
Elliot Page has had a number of rather public splits and he is featured more than a few times on this list! But his relationship with Samantha Thomas was arguably one of the most captivating and heartbreaking for fans. One of Page’s first public break-ups was with actress and producer Samantha Thomas. Page and Thomas began dating in 2015 when Page identified as a gay woman
They made their red carpet debut that same year, looking completely smitten with each other. The couple led a rather private life and shared few details of their romance except for Page taking any opportunity to praise Thomas when asked in interviews. After almost two years of being together, Page and Thomas sadly called it quits.
Amber Heard & Tasya van Ree
Amber Heard has unfortunately made the news for all the wrong reasons lately. Her tumultuous relationship with Johnny Depp has certainly overshadowed aspects of her career and her past. This is why it might come as a surprise for fans to know that she dated photographer and artist Tasya van Ree for a full four years from 2008 through to 2012 before they went their separate ways.
Those who followed every minute of the Depp-Heard trial will also know that Tasya was the ex-partner Amber had allegedly been in altercations with. Tasya set the record straight later with a public statement saying her ex was wrongfully accused. Van Ree got a tattoo of Heard’s name on her arm and still bears it to this day.
Kristen Stewart & Stella Maxwell
The romance between Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell was seemingly a tug of war that ultimately was a tug on the heartstrings for the rest of us. Whispers about their romance first began making the rounds in January 2017. Just five months later, the couple moved in together.
A real rollercoaster of a relationship, the pair had a string of breakups and makeups in their three years of on-and-off dating. Sources close to the pair say that disagreements and conflicting work schedules replaced the fun. Stella is now reportedly dating bombshell Irina Shayk while Kristen is in a relationship with screenwriter Dylan Meyer. Plus, the two still share many friends together. All’s well that ends well!
Ellen Degeneres & Anne Heche
It would be hard to find a couple that trailblazed out celebrity relationships more than Ellen Degeneres and Anne Heche. Walking hand in hand at red carpet events throughout the late ‘90s, Ellen and Anne ushered in a new attitude towards same-sex relationships. The late Anne has said the night she met Ellen changed her life…and not in a good way.
Anne revealed that her three-year relationship with Ellen caused so much upset in upper-Hollywood circles that she was essentially barred from auditioning for any big-title roles. She famously stated that Ellen’s primary goal was to make more money. Hers had always been to find love. In August 2022, Anne sadly passed away.
