Although 2018 was a lucky year for love with some Hollywood couples, for many it was the year they said goodbye to their relationships, new and old. Take a look as we count down all the celeb breakups so far of this year. Just take a look at these two once love birds, Robert De Niro, and Grace Hightower. Well, they were lovebirds. FOR 20 YEARS!
The two decide to call it quits after 20 years of marriage. A close source to the couple said to People Magazine: “Sometimes things don’t work out the way you hope or want them to.”
They got married back in 1997 and have two kids, Elliott (20) and Helen Grace (6).
De Niro confirmed the split in a statement saying that it has been a “difficult but constructive process. We are entering a period of transition in our relationship which is a difficult but constructive process.”
He added to CNN : “I honor Grace as a wonderful mother and ask for privacy and respect from all as we proceed to develop our roles as partners in parenting.”
If you remember, this isn’t the first time they split. Back in 1999 De Niro filed for divorce, but they worked it out and even renewed their vows in 2004.
The last time they were seen together was at the Tony Awards in June 2018. De Niro has two kids from his previous wife Diahnne Abbott (1976 to 1988), Drena (47) and Raphael (42), and another two with his 1995 girlfriend Touki Smith, twins Aaron and Julian.
Paris Hilton & Chris Zylka.
The two got engaged in January 2018, and now, almost 11 months after that special date – they called it off. Not only the engagement but the whole relationship. The reports say that the relationship between Hilton, 37, and Chris, 33, “started to become off-kilter after about two years together.”
Hilton will continue to DJ while Chris will keep up his acting and art career. They began dating in early 2017.
One day after news broke about the breakup, it was also revealed that Chris wants the US$ 2 million engagement ring back. He is, by the way, entitled to the ring because under California law, if she decided to break it up, Chris can get the ring back.

Their whirlwind romance and engagement ended as quickly as it started. TMZ shocked fans when they announced the couple split on October 14th. According to sources, the split occurred a few days before it was reported, and no bad blood was spilled.
Rather it ended with both parties acknowledging that it simply was not the right time for their relationship to take off,” TMZ explained, though added, “the two aren’t ruling out the possibility of anything in the future.”
