Summer 2015 was the season of celebrity splits â€” Ben and Jen, Gavin and Gwen, Blake and Mirandaâ€¦
Turns out, summer 2016 is shaping up to be just as dismal with Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris, as well as Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama, calling time on their romances. After six â€œloving and wonderfulâ€ years together, what happened between D and W?
The pair issued a joint statement on Instagram, confirming the end of their long-term relationship.
After the shock settled, whispers began to suggest that personalities may have clashed. A source said, â€œHeâ€™s this amazing salt of the Earth, sweet, hardworking guy and she just isnâ€™t the right person for him.â€
Thereâ€™s also a 13-year age difference between the couple. Heâ€™s 36 and she is 23, suggesting they may simply be at different points in their lives.
Another source adds, â€œIt had turned into more of a big brother-little sister kind of relationship. The romance wasnâ€™t what it used to be. That said, Wilmer is still very protective of her. He did a lot for herâ€”not just in terms of being there for her when she had her health issues, but really helping build her brand and launch her product lines. You never saw him out in front though. He never tried to ride her fame.â€
