Ariana Grande reportedly changed the locks on her $16M Zaha Hadid-designed apartment in Chelsea, blocked her ex, Pete Davidson, on all social media and sheared off her ass-grazing ponytail to demarcate a new chapter post-breakup. It was a hair transformation which screamed: “thank u, next bitch!” In retaliation, Davidson dyed his hair troll doll blue at a Sally Hershberger salon.
The optics weren’t great for Davidson, who was dubbed "butthole eyes" by haters and appeared unfazed by his split with the singer on Oct. 14. He continued to crank out the “marry me” jokes in SNL promos and on Weekend Update segments. But despite his lack of public mourning, Davidson went through a subtle style shift, possibly color-matching his mood to his troll doll hair.
The BDE comic who pioneered “scumbro” style tripled down on his pastel hoodies in a bid to prove he was dealing just fine, thanks, and would continue to be his carefree, big-mouthed self. His other style moves? He severed all inked connections to Grande by covering up a few tattoos devoted to his ex. He has since dyed his hair Storm gray and is apparently back on the dating app Raya with a profile that reads, "It was either this or The Bachelor."
2018 has been a rough year, man. No celebrity union is immune from destruction. We have witnessed the demise of many celebrity relationships including, but not limited to, Chris Zylka and Paris Hilton; Shia LaBeouf and Mia Goth; Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus; Younes Bendjima and Kourtney Kardashian; and Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan.
These guys’ style didn't drastically transform post-breakup, but each made certain sartorial moves that cashed in on their solitude, the style equivalent of these images of Nicole Kidman after signing the papers finalizing her divorce from Tom Cruise. Let’s take a walk through the relationship graveyard of 2018.
