Should I or shouldn’t I? That’s the question on most people’s minds when they reconnect with the exes. As they say, timing is everything and some people realise that they’re still in love after having spent months or years apart. Below, we catalogue a list of celebs who overcame the cross-connection and got back together:
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are that one couple we are perpetually rooting for. The two look so in love with each other and their cute moments (religiously documented by the iconic Miz Teigen) never fail to make our day a little better. However, in an interview with The Guardian, Legend revealed that he tried breaking up with Teigen once when he was stressed and busy. “I was just like, ‘I’d just be happier single right now’,” he said. Teigen tweeted her response to this revelation and said: “It wasn’t a typical breakup. He was on tour and his voice hurt and he was being a whiny face about everything and so yeah, I was like ‘no.'”
While many on Twitter speculate that Justin Timberlake is still not over his ex Britney Spears (it’s been 16 years or so since their much-publicised breakup?), the singer has found love in Jessica Biel. The two started dating in 2007 but broke up in 2011. That very year, Timberlake gave an interview to Vanity Fair where he said this about Biel: “She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person, OK? … I would rather not talk about her, because it’s hurtful for me.” Sometimes things are just meant to be – Biel and Timberlake got back together in October that year.
G-Eazy and Halsey really stole our hearts with “Him & I” and then crushed it when it was revealed that they had broken up. However, the musicians were spotted being cute at a VMA’s after party soon after and even made out at G-Eazy’s concert.
While it is extremely tough to get over #Jelena (there are entire fan pages still rooting for Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber to get back together), we’re going to focus on the Biebs and Hailey Baldwin. The two briefly dated in 2016 but the breakup was so bad that they didn’t speak for a long time. However, the two seem to have reconciled since and are now engaged. Yay?
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik make for such a heartbreakingly good-looking pairing that we were quite put out when the two broke up in March 2018. However, Gigi posted an Instagram story of the two cuddling so we can all relax now.
