    Every relationship has been tested by the challenges of COVID-19. While some couples have become closer during this time of chaos and fear, others have had existing marital issues magnified or seen new problems come to light. For some, the difficulties have become so evident that divorce is the only answer. The breakdown of many celebrity marriages during this time make the relationship stress of the coronavirus crystal clear.

    Here are some of the celeb couples who have filed for divorce during the coronavirus:

    Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich

    The dancer and hockey player got married almost three years ago but announced their separation on May 29. The pair had been quarantining separately since April, with reports that their union was on the rocks even before COVID-19 hit. For some couples, distance allows them to get the space they need to regroup and makes them realize how much they miss their partner. For Hough and Laich, it seems they realized how much they enjoy being apart.

    Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock

    On June 4, singer Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from her husband of close to seven years. They had been quarantining together with their two young children in Montana but the divorce papers were filed in Los Angeles, bringing the matter of jurisdiction into play. Irreconcilable differences were cited for the breakdown of the marriage, and Clarkson has alluded to time spent in quarantine highlighting the issues the couple were already having.

    Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler

    The Hills alum and her NFL alum husband spent three weeks in the Bahamas together with their three young children as the pandemic began in March. Upon their return, Cavallari filed for divorce. The couple were married for seven years and weathered many ups and downs, by all accounts. They professed that they came to a “loving conclusion” to get a divorce, but shortly thereafter, Cavallari claimed Cutler was preventing her from buying a new house during divorce proceedings. You might think you’ll have an amicable divorce, but it doesn’t always work that way – one of the many reasons to retain an experienced divorce lawyer.

    Dr. Dre and Nicole Young

    On June 29, Nicole Young, wife of rapper, producer, and music mogul Dr. Dre, filed for divorce after 24 years of marriage. She cited irreconcilable differences and seeks spousal support from Dr. Dre. There are reports that the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement, which is a significant detail since Dr. Dre has amassed a small fortune over his lengthy career – about $800 million.

    Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy

    After five years of marriage, actress and designer Mary-Kate Olsen filed an emergency divorce petition on May 14. Her plea was rejected as the New York City courts were undergoing an eight-week moratorium because of the pandemic. Celebrity or not, divorces require a certain amount of time to be completed, unless there are extenuating circumstances. And celebrity status does not buy you a quickie divorce.
