Breaking up is hard to do, but when you're a celeb who just so happens to end up dating another star, it seems like the whole word really wants to know all the details. Most couples tend to stay mum when they're together but after they break up, all bets are off and that's when the truth really comes out.
Click through the gallery to see which celebs have spilled some surprising truths about their high-profile relationships after the breakup. Then tell us in the comments section below which of these shocked you the most!
Joe Jonas on his relationship with Demi Lovato and how he didn't know how to end things, even though he wasn't happy:
"We had been friends forever, we were both Disney kids, and because we played a couple in the Camp Rock Disney Channel specials—and fans liked seeing us together—we eventually dated for a month," Joe said. "I really got to know her and got to see the ins and outs of what she was struggling with. I felt like I needed to take care of her, but at the same time I was living a lie, because I wasn’t happy but felt like I had to stay in it for her, because she needed help. I couldn’t express any of that, of course, because I had a brand to protect."
Calvin Harris on his high-profile split from Taylor Swift and how everything became more public that he ever wanted it to be:
"For both of us it was the wrong situation. It clearly wasn't right, so it ended. It's very difficult when something I consider so personal plays out very publicly," he said. "The aftermath of the relationship was way more heavily publicized than the relationship itself. When we were together, we were very careful for it not to be a media circus. She respected my feelings in that sense. But when it ended, all hell broke loose."
Bridgit Mendler on how she honestly felt right after her split from longtime boyfriend Shane Harper:
"I was overwhelmed by emotional numbness, like a whole city overcome by waves, and dumped into the ocean," Bridgit said. "After being in love for so long, it was scary and confusing to deal with the loss of that feeling. This song was written at a moment when I was sorting through these emotions and expectantly looking towards the future."
Taylor Swift on what her life while dating Harry Styles really like, which she described in detail in her song, "Out of the Woods":
"The number one feeling I felt in the whole relationship was anxiety. Because it felt very fragile, it felt very tentative," Taylor explained. "And it always felt like, 'Okay, what's the next road block? What's the next thing that's gonna deter this? How long do we have before this turns into just an awful mess and we break up? Is it a month? Is it three days?"
Perrie Edwards on the way her relationship with Zayn Malik ended during a time when her career was flourishing.
"It was horrible, the worst time in my life. A four-year relationship, two-year engagement ended by a simple text message. Just like that. After I split with my partner, out of the blue, I had nowhere to go, which was incredibly stressful. Even though things in my career were going really well, it was incredibly difficult for me," she said.
Miley Cyrus on when she finally spoke about her relationship with Nick Jonas and how the breakup inspired a rebellion:
"Nick and I loved each other. For two years he was basically my 24/7. But it was really hard to keep it from people. We were arguing a lot, and it really wasn't fun," Miley said. "At first I bawled for a month straight. I was so sad. I just went into this weird funk. And I dyed my hair black. When we were dating, Nick wanted me to get highlights – and so I did that, and I got myself looking great. And then, on the day we broke up, I was like, I want to make my hair black now – I don't want to look pretty; I want to look hard-core. I was rebelling against everything Nick wanted me to be. And then I was like, I've got to be by myself for now, and just figure out who I really am."
Ariana Grande on how there was no drama between her and Big Sean after they split. And in fact, she felt just fine and was even doing better than ever:
"I'm good at making the best out of something," she said about the breakup. "It also wasn't that hard for me, because we were friends. So it's chill. I've been feeling a lot more empowered, and grown up, and independent. I think that's part of the reason I didn't want to make a pissed-off break-up song. I was not focused on that."
