As the year comes to a close, many people are reflecting on what they've accomplished and celebrated over the past 12 months. Everyone's gone through pretty unique experiences and though we relish in the good things, we should remember and appreciate the sad stuff too. Here's a recap of six Canadian celebrity couple breakups this year.

Nina Dobrev & Grant Mellon

In early November, The Vampire Diaries star and the actor and director ended their pretty short-lived relationship. It never became Instagram official, and they stayed private about it after the nine-month-long relationship started in January this year.

Avril Lavigne & Phillip Sarofim

In late November, the punk rock singer and her billionaire boyfriend split up after dating for a year. Their relationship was confirmed in 2018 and 33-year-old Sarofim even produced his girlfriend's music video for I Fell in Love with the Devil.

William Shatner & Elizabeth Shatner

Earlier this month, the Montreal-born actor filed for divorce from his wife of 18 years, according to TMZ. Luckily, they reported that the two have a prenup so the "split should move along relatively smoothly," including the fact that the actor and previous horse trainer and rider don't share any children together. 

Jim Carrey & Ginger Gonzaga

The former couple "played love interests on the Showtime dramedy Kidding" according to US Weekly who confirmed they were together in January 2019 and then their breakup the following October. Though it was kept very lowkey, 57-year-old Carrey and 35-year-old Gonzaga did make a red carpet debut early in their relationship. 

Emily Hampshire & Teddy Geiger

The Schitt's Creek star and her fiancé broke up six months after Montreal-born Hampshire "popped the question with a heart-shaped diamond ring following a few months of dating", according to E! News. Geiger transitioned from male to female in October 2017 and is a singer and songwriter, who's even produced records for Shawn Mendes. 

Tristan Thompson & Khloe Kardashian 

The NBA star was born and raised in Toronto before he got involved in the Kardashian family and had a baby with Khloe. The infamous cheating scandal with Kylie's former BBF Jordyn Woods in February this year ended their relationship almost a year after True was born in April 2018.
