From fun fling to the real thing! In Jennifer Lopez’s first serious relationship following her divorce from Marc Anthony, the “Booty” singer and her beau Casper Smart ended their relationship after two and a half years together. When the duo got together in 2011, sources told People that the relationship was just a “fun fling.”
Everything seemed perfect for Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa until the model filed for divorce from the rapper in October. Soon after came the reports of crazy fights and infidelity.

Not only did Jason Derulo breakup with his girlfriend of almost three years, Jordin Sparks, but he also did it over the phone! “Every relationship has ups and downs. There was a lot of pressures of marriage. There was a lot of arguing and stuff like that that just weighed on our relationship over time. When you stop having more good times than bad bad times, it’s time to call it quits. It becomes something that is unhealthy,” Jason explained during an interview with Ryan Seacrest.
