When you are deeply in love with your partner, your judgment may become clouded by your emotions. You may feel like you can spend the rest of your life with one person, but there may be instances when these emotions can change in an instant. The following list of celebrity couples is a testament to how couples can seem in love one minute and fall out of love soon after. Find out who among the stars had short-lived engagements:

Celebrities Who Cut Off Their Engagements

1. Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich

The once lovey-dovey couple took to Instagram to make their engagement official back in July 2020. Many were surprised because the two had only dated for roughly five months when they got engaged. Unfortunately, the couple called off the engagement and broke up in September, with their engagement lasting only about two months. A few months after the breakup, the two are still riling up the tabloids as Max continues to claim that he was unaware of the split and only found out about it from the press.

2. Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson

It was an unusual pairing when Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson started dating in May 2018. After only weeks into the relationship, Davidson proposed to Grande on June 11, to which the pop singer accepted. Shortly after, the two moved in together. By October 14, the couple announced their breakup. They were engaged for about four months. While the duo claimed that they still have respect and love for each other, it was just not the right time to take their relationship to the next level. The two have now moved on with their respective partners.

3. Mariah Carey and James Packer

For those who were unaware, Mariah Carey and James Packer used to be a couple. The two went public with their relationship in June 2015, got engaged in January of 2016, and called off their engagement in October 2016. It seems that the constant time apart had put a significant strain on their relationship, as Carey was traveling for her Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour. The distance has eventually left the two in a bad situation.

4. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

After only a month of dating, Lamar Odom proposed to Khloe Kardashian. It was a short engagement, as the two got married in September 2009 after being engaged for less than a week. In December 2013, Kardashian filed for divorce due to Odom’s cheating scandal and relapse into drug abuse.

5. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

Perhaps one of the most memorable engagements and marriages in the Kardashian household is of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. The two met in 2010, got engaged in 2011, and got married only after three months of engagement. What’s most shocking is that Kim filed for divorce after 72 days of marriage.

6. Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck

Another controversial engagement in the celebrity world is that of “Bennifer”. The duo got engaged in 2005, but Affleck ultimately called off the engagement four days before their scheduled wedding.

7. Nikki Bella and John Cena

The couple started dating in 2012, the same year when John Cena finalized his divorce from his then wife, Elizabeth Huberdeau. Cena proposed in 2017 but the two called off the wedding in April 2018. The couple have reconciled only to call off the engagement again. Now, Bella has a child with her fiancé Artem Chigvintsev.

8. Selita Ebanks and Nick Cannon

Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebanks and Drumline star Nick Cannon got engaged in 2007 after the latter proposed in New York’s Time Square. Sadly, the two called off the engagement and split up after being engaged for about five months.

These celebrities prove that whirlwind romance may exist, but it doesn’t mean that they should rush into getting married just yet. If you feel like you are ready to spend the rest of your life with your partner, you can start planning your proposal by choosing the best ring from Love & Promise Jewelers.
