It’s hard to be in the spotlight 24/7, but celebrity relationships can make that even harder. Famous people are known for pairing up with other stars for publicity or because of their poor judgment, but neither ensures success.

It’s no surprise that many celebs often seem on the verge of a breakup, and the following celebrities are some of the many who seem better off single:

1. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber: From the moment Selena Gomez started dating Justin Bieber, she received death threats from Bieber’s many fans, indicating some serious stresses that are unique to their partnership. It’s likely a sign that Hollywood’s cutest couple should think about having fun apart and enjoying their youth and fame alone.

2. Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy: Early on Bravo TV’s The Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy found love and success. She gave birth to their first child, Bryn, and increased her Skinny Girl trademark with her own Bravo reality shows Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After. However, on this season of Bethenny Ever After, the couple bickered in almost every episode and divorce rumors began to spread. Though Frankel addressed these rumors on her talk show and stated that she and Hoppy have not seen a divorce lawyer, it’s clear that this couple should take some time out from the reality TV spotlight or call it quits altogether.

3. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are becoming serious and aren’t shying away from the public eye. Rumors of their romance began after Amber Rose, West’s ex, explained how Kardashian sent emails and pictures to the rapper while she and West were still dating. Plus, Kardashian recently ended her marriage with Kris Humphries after 72 days. Relationships that start off as affairs rarely end happily. These two would be better off on their own.

However, critics and fans accuse Smart of being nothing more than Lopez’s boy toy because of their age difference. Considering this and also Lopez’s poor track record of dating celebs, she really needs to stop falling in love with love.
