There’s nothing worse than hearing that your favourite celebrity ship has come to an end.

In Vivi Greene’s ‘Sing’ we get to experience it from the eyes of one of the breaker-uppers. Lily Ross, singing sensation, escapes into summer and obscurity. But dayum, her fans must have been gutted. Here’s a list of some of those celebrity break-ups that punched us in the gut (and made us shed many a teeny tiny tear).

1. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder

Together both on screen in ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and off… these two breaking up was like waking up from a dream. *pouty face* We’re totes over it now (sort of), but at the time it stung.

2. Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson


This break-up was messy. It was a little gutting. And it was EVERYWHERE. Our hearts broke with them, and for them. Even the second time around. #twihardforever

3. Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron

These two were too cute to function. And maybe that’s why it had to end, eh? Oh ‘High School Musical’, how we love thee and thy ships.

4. Jamie Campbell Bower and Lily Collins

Clary (Lily Collins) rides off with Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower) in Screen Gems' fantasy-action THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES.

Coming together on the set of ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones’ these two have had a “are they/aren’t they” that would rival any cinematic romance. That said, it seems pretty definite this time. #muchsadness

5. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez


Sure they’ve moved on, grown up a bit and are DEFINITELY owning their own space, but… it’s still sad. JUST LOOK AT THEM!

6. One Direction.

This broke many, many hearts and continues to do so. So we’re counting it, k? The technical term for the band split is “hiatus” but we just call it “soul-destroying”.

If you love love and you think you might want to go there all over again (the place of emotion and heartache) then click here and get your copy of ‘Sing’. Is there a happy ending? Mebbe. You’ll have to read it and find out.
