Fans of pop culture seem more than aware of the biggest break-ups of 2019. For instance, if you asked them about the state of Khloe and Tristan, Gigi and Zayn, Liam and Miley, Pete and Kate, or Bradley and Irina, they'd have a firm answer. But these highly publicized splits made the ones on this list slip under the radar. Even the biggest pop culture fans don't seem to know about them. And that's strange, especially given the fact that most of them included an A-list celebrity. Well... more or less. That really depends on what you watch or listen to. Regardless, we think you'll be surprised that you didn't know about at least 90% of these break-ups. Without further ado, here are 20 celeb breakups you probably missed this year and that totally slipped under the radar.
