Breaking up is hard to do, and it's even harder to do when you see your ex-significant other liking girls' photos on Instagram or tagged in a rando's clubbing photos on Facebook.

Not that you'd be creeping or anything, but it's actually much better for you to avoid social media like the plague after a break up. 

Doing this will help speed up the recovery of your broken heart and help you move on, Exaholics relationships expert and clinical psychologist Dr Cortney Warren told Bustle

The psychologist told the online tome that being faced with information about your ex immediately after a breakup can negatively impact your ability to move on from the situation. 

She also referenced the constant opportunity to 'check up' on your ex's life as being counter-productive to a healthy grievance period.

It can also lead you to seeing things you do NOT want to see, such as your ex moving on with someone new. 

'If the relationship is over, the ease of communication only prolongs the frustration and hurt,' she told Bustle

According to dating site eHarmony, there are a number of ways to avoid drawing out the upset period after a breakup by taking certain social media steps. 

'Unfriend them on Facebook and stop following them on Twitter. Even though it may seem harsh to cut someone off so completely it is better in the long run because it will help you resist the temptation to cyber stalk them,' advises the site. 

The dating site also reminds us not to use our own statuses or tweets as a means of revenge, in an attempt to make someone jealous or as a tool to hurt someone’s feelings.

So as much as you may want to make sly digs about a certain SOMEONE's lack of sexual prowess or emotional range, Facebook, Twitter or Snapchat is not the place to have that rant. 

The proper place for that is at your place over a bottle of vino with the girls, safe in the sanctity of best friendship, not publicly on the internet. 

eHarmony also recommends avoiding social media when drunk, to avoid the temptation to send out an ill-advised booty call when every ounce of your gin-soaked being is telling you that that's a good idea.

Side note: We can assure you it is not a good idea. 

So, if all else fails?

Just block them from your social media feeds. 

If you can't see what they're up to then you are much less likely to think about them, and can focus on moving on and recovering from the break up.

It might be incredibly hard to resist the temptation to creep, but it will be much better in the long run. 


Mel B’s ex-husband, Stephen Belafonte, has dismissed claims that he physically and emotionally abused the former Spice Girl calling them "outrageous and unfounded".

The Los Angeles Superior Court granted the singer a temporary restraining order earlier this week after she filed documents detailing the extent of the domestic abuse she suffered.

In the papers, Mel claimed that she had suffered ''multiple physical beatings'' and that Stephen had threatened to release intimate videos of her.

According to reports the Spice Girl also claimed that Stephen got their nanny pregnant, forced her to take part in sexual acts with other women, and even stopped her from calling an ambulance when she overdosed on painkillers.

This comes just two weeks after Mel filed for divorce from the film producer after almost 10 years of marriage.

In a statement, representatives from Stephen’s legal team confirmed that he will soon be making an official response to the allegations.

"It's a shame that Ms Brown elected not to proceed in a respectful and amicable fashion in this very private matter."

"In due course, Mr Belafonte will be filing his response to the outrageous and unfounded allegations made by Ms Brown, which allegations he vehemently denies."

The couple, who have been married since 2007 have one daughter, Maddison, together.

Mel have has two other children form previous relationships, 18-year-old Pheonix and 9-year-old Angel. 


Mariah Carey has reportedly been dumped by her billionaire fiancé, James Packer, after a disagreement about her extravagant spending habits and new reality show.

According to Woman’s Day, the Australian businessman left the 46-year-old singer after falling out over her plans to expose their lifestyle on her new reality show, Mariah’s World.    

“It’s all over,” a family friend alleged.  “James had huge reservations about Mariah’s new reality TV show and the fact that she was willing to expose their lives to the world.”

The site states that 49-year-old James allowed Mariah to keep the $10 million diamond engagement ring her gave her in January this year after a whirlwind romance.

Those close to the Packer family are said to be unsurprised by the news as they have reportedly had reservations about the relationship since its inception last year.

A source said: “James is very generous but Mariah takes it to the next level.”

“When she refused to come to Australia for [James’ sister’s] birthday party it created a lot of tension in the family. His mum hated to even hear her name mentioned, and James’ tight circle of friends never really thought they would marry.”

Mariah cancelled most of her South American tour earlier this week.

Having finally gone public with Skins star Luke Pasqualino, it seems Perrie Edwards is finally ready to address some of the lingering questions which surround her last big romance.

Expressing herself through Little Mix’s new book, Our World, the 23-year-old pop star confirmed that Zayn Malik did call off their high profile engagement via text.

Describing the 2015 breakup as the “worst time” of her life, Perrie wrote:  “It was horrible…A four-year relationship, two year engagement ended by a simple text message.”


Cheeky throwback! #wishmakerperfume

“Just like that.  Even though things in my career were going really well, it was incredibly difficult for me.”

The leaked passage stands in stark contrast with the former One Direction star’s version of events.

Zayn previously told The Fader: “I have more respect for Perrie than to end anything over text message.  I love her a lot, and I always will, and I would never end our relationship over four years like that.”

“She knows that, I know that, and the public should know that as well. I don’t want to explain why or what I did, I just want the public to know I didn’t do that.”

Perrie’s claims have garnered a huge reaction online, with a “PerrieExposedZaynParty” hashtag trending on Twitter.









Earlier this week the world of celebrity romance was once again thrown into chaos when it was revealed that Hiddleswift had officially come to an end.

And while Selena Gomez may have encouraged her gal pal Taylor Swift to move on from Tom by focusing on the music, we’re not sure Calvin Harris’ music is quite what she had in mind.

In a new post on her Instagram account, the Wildest Dreams singer can be seen bopping along to her Scottish ex’s track This Is What You Came For while supporting her BFF Gigi Hadid as she walked the Tommy Hilfiger runway.

The post was captioned: “SO PROUD OF YOU GIGI!!!!! That show was INSANE.  Congrats to Gi, Tommy, and all the girls who just owned that runway.”

Does this mean Taylor’s put any Bad Blood she had with Calvin behind her?  We certainly hope so!


Looking up videos of kittens hugging each other, probably.

He might be best known for his playboy ways on MTV’s Geordie Shore, but if Gary Beadle’s latest conversation with Lillie Gregg proves anything, it’s that the Newcastle native is a big softie at heart.

During a heartfelt conversation which was filmed for the latest series of Ex On The Beach, Gaz was reduced to tears as he confessed the realities of breaking up with Lillie, whom he had dated for a year.

Despite much speculation that Gaz had left Lillie to reunite with Charlotte Crosby, when asked by Lillie why they really broke up the 28-year-old reality star admitted that he had felt forced to choose between his career and their romance.


My favourite day of the week

He said: “That was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make in my whole entire life.  Our relationship or my work.”

Describing life in front of the camera as “the only thing [he’s] any f*cking good at”, Gaz told his model ex: “I had to pick what I thought was best for me at the time.  As hard as that was, it meant leaving you.”

He then apologised to Lillie for how he treated her and her family after their split, an admission which brought both Lillie and Gary to tears.

“I’m sorry for the way I treated you after.  I’m sorry if I didn’t message your family because they’ve been nothing but nice to us,” he said.

During the strikingly real conversation, Lillie also told Gaz that the best memories of her life have been with him.

Through tears Gaz replied: “You made me realise that there’s more to life than what I was doing.”

“People who say I’ve changed, it’s because of you.  I can never thank you enough for that.”



Since splitting with Gaz late last year Lillie has been linked with Celebrity Big Brother winner Stephen Bear but now that that relationship has come to a dramatic end, could a reunion be on the cards for Gaz and Lillie?

For now, we’ll have to wait and see.

Through a pile of tearstained tissues we are saddened to report that the teen couple of the summer are no longer an item.

That’s right ladies, Brooklyn Beckham and Chloe Moretz – aka the people who launched a million “couple goals” hashtags – have broken up.

While all the details are not yet clear, the Mail Online has reported that the Kick Ass star and aspiring photographer called a halt to their relationship at some stage over “the past few weeks”.


Look who surprised me !!! We are Ready to watch @hillaryclinton make history.. (Tune in at 9:18 for my speech xox)

It is believed that the breakup occurred while 17-year-old Brooklyn was in LA on a two-month break with his family. 

The Beckhams returned to London earlier this week.


Congratulations  proud of this one xx

While making an appearance of Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live back in May, Chloe confirmed that the pair were officially dating.

They had previously been seeing each other in 2014.

She might have him well beaten in the rebound stakes, but Calvin Harris seems to have smashed Taylor Swift’s chances of being the first ex to make music about their famous split.

According to TMZ, the Scottish DJ is working on a new track called Ole which is supposedly written from the perspective of TayTay’s new love Tom Hiddleston.

And if the lyrics are anything to go by, it seems Calvin is pretty convinced that TayTom were getting together before he and the Bad Blood singer officially ended their 15 month romance.

The song says: "I see online that you begun to be a good girl and take trips with your boyfriend.  Being attentive, continue to pretend."

"You've hidden my name in your phone so you can call me to tell me you've been going through hell.  Left him alone and you booked in a hotel."

And in a possible reference to Tom’s role as Loki in Thor: "Low key you won't tell none of your friends about me."

TMZ’s sources say the Summer hitmaker has no bad feelings towards Tom as he believes the actor has been mesmerised by Taylor.

Although it has yet to be revealed when exactly the track will be released, it is said John Newman will be its featured singer as he and Calvin were spotted in Mexico together last week where the song’s video was shot.

The news comes almost two weeks after Calvin swayed from his original statement that his split with Taylor was filled with love and respect by telling an Instagram follower that his ex “controlled the media” and that he “had no idea what was going on”.

We wonder how easy it’ll be for Taylor to shake this one off.



With the breakdown of her engagement to Nick Young and the revelations that Nick’s ex is now pregnant with his child, Iggy Azalea has been having a seriously tough time over the last few weeks.

But thankfully model Amber Rose is on hand to offer Iggy her support.

On Saturday, Amber shared a heartfelt message on Instagram in which she tells the Australian rapper she understands what she’s going though and encourages her to stay strong despite the drama.

She wrote: “My heart goes out to you@thenewclassic I have been through heartbreak as well so I know what ur going through.”

“Stay strong and keep ur head up my Rosebuds and I support you and we think ur AMAZING!!! Not only beautiful but extremely talented!”

“I remember watching ur YouTube videos a few years back thinking ‘Wow this girl is gonna be a star’ and you are!”

“Let all the hate go in one ear and out the other…. Trust me I deal with just as much hate if not more."

Towards the end of the post, the sweet message takes a true Amber Rose twist as she tells Iggy to go “be a hoe” for the summer.

Stay strong and keep ur head up my Rosebuds and I support you and we think ur AMAZING!!! Not only beautiful but extremely talented!

For most people calling off their engagement would be enough drama to last a lifetime, but unfortunately for Iggy Azalea splitting with hubby-to-be Nick Young seems to have only been the beginning of the storm.

This week the news broke that the reason behind the pair’s split was because Nick’s ex-girlfriend’s is currently pregnant with his child which naturally means he cheated on Iggy during their year-long engagement.

And now the Australian rapper has revealed she had no idea Nick’s ex Keonna Green was expecting until she saw it on TV.

She tweeted: “I have never even been told by Nick that his baby mother is pregnant so if this is true I’m finding out via E news.”

The star then revealed the real reason she broke up with NBA player Nick is because she found proof that he was cheating on her in their shared home.

She wrote: “I broke up with Nick because I found out he had brought other women into our home while I was away and caught them on the security footage.”

Potentially referencing the rumours that Nick had cheated on her with a teenager earlier this year, she continued: “This is just like a second shot to the chest. And I feel like I don't even know who the hell it is I've been loving all this time.”

"People in this wold are really f*cked up."

Addressing claims that Keonna had sold the story of how she got pregnant to the media herself, last night Iggy ended the stream of explosive revelations with: “I find it baffling anyone would make the choice to bring a child into the world under these circumstances + want attention and $ for it.”

“I feel like my body was just drop kicked out of a plane with no parachute.”

With all that's going on, it's little surprise Iggy feels that way.

It’s been a rollercoaster few months for rapper Iggy Azalea and her Lakers fiancé Nick Young, but it seems things between the pair have officially come to an end.

The Fancy singer took to Instagram last night to post a heartfelt message about her decision to end things with partner of two years Nick – just three months after a video was leaked in which he confessed to cheating on the hit-maker with a teenager.

The post said: “Unfortunately although I love Nick and have tried and tried to rebuild my trust in him – It’s become apparent in the last few weeks i am unable to.”

“I genuinely wish Nick the best.”

“It’s never easy to part ways with the person you planned you’re [sic] entire future with, but futures can be rewritten and as of today mine is a blank page.”

The breakup was confirmed by 31-year-old Nick who tweeted the word “single” shortly after.

The news comes less than a week after pro-athlete Nick chatted wedding plans and joked about Iggy’s bridezilla tendencies on a Billboard podcast.

Despite insisting the pair were trying to work things out, Iggy took off her engagement ring in April.

She said at the time: "He doesn't deserve for me to be wearing his ring right now. We're not not engaged, but you have to do some work to [see me] put the ring back on."

It’s been a hectic few days in Hollywood but few people have been the centre of as much speculation as singer Taylor Swift and her recent ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris.

Since the news broke earlier this week that the pair have ended their 15 month relationship, multiple theories have surfaced online attempting to explain what could have happened between the pair.

But the Scottish DJ took to Twitter last night to put those rumours to bed, writing: “The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect.”  Awh!

The tweet was then retweeted by Taylor herself.

Multiple sources have told E! News that the former couple’s relationship had lost its spark and that their breakup didn’t come as any big surprise to those close to the stars.

One said: “Taylor and Adam had no big blowout fight, but the romance just was not there anymore for them.  Adam is the one that ended it.  It was all done in a very mature fashion.”

Taylor – who is said to be “pretty upset” about the breakup – has turned newly single BFF Gigi Hadid for comfort.

At least the girls will always have each other.
