    Maybe DJ Khaled's "<a title="khaled" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/rap-music/new-music/2014/08/remy-ma-dj-khaled-they-dont-love-you-no-more-remix/" target="_blank">They Don't Love You No More</a>" is more of a reflection of the times than we thought. 2014 has been a year for <a title="tour" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/jay-z-beyonce-on-the-run-tour-100-million/" target="_blank">blockbuster tours</a>, <a title="reunion" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/06/22-hip-hop-reunions-two-years/" target="_blank">old-school reunions</a> and <em>plenty</em> of drama. Whether it's the ongoing rumors of the demise of hip-hop's golden couple, <a title="line" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/beyonce-jay-z-breakup-timeline/" target="_blank">Jay Z and Beyonce</a>, or the public mess that became <a title="tiny" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/t-i-tiny-floyd-mayweather/" target="_blank">T.I.'s relationship with Tiny</a>, love hasn't really been in the air in the rap world this year. For every <a title="khloe" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/french-montana-posts-picture-khloes-cakes-instagram/" target="_blank">French Montana/Khloe Kardashian hookup</a>, or <a title="kim" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/05/check-photos-kanye-kims-wedding/" target="_blank">Kanye West/Kim Kardashian marriage</a>, we've seen the ongoing and sad fallout of <a title="p" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/06/master-p-loses-custody-four-kids-never-showed-court/" target="_blank">Master P's marriage</a>, or rumors of <a title="mansion" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/nick-cannon-mariah-carey-sells-bel-air-mansion-10-million/" target="_blank">Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon</a> selling their house.<br /><br />But with the news of Future and Ciara <a title="off" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/future-ciara-break/" target="_blank">calling off their engagement </a>just months after the<a title="birth" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/05/future-and-ciara-baby-boy/" target="_blank"> birth of their baby boy</a>, <a title="future" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/ciara-shows-off-new-photo-of-baby-future/" target="_blank">Future Zahir</a>—and this following on the heels of yesterday's news of<a title="blac" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/tyga-blac-chyna-break/" target="_blank"> Tyga and Blac Chyna</a>'s breakup—it seems like <em>Love And Hip-Hop</em> is just a reality show after all. With love no longer in the air, here are nine hip-hop relationships that came to an end this year. Don't forget to send roses.
  • KhloeTrina
    <a title="french" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/04/trina-doesnt-like-french-montana-khloe-kardashian-dating/" target="_blank"><h2>French Montana and Trina</h2></a>French and Trina were reportedly so serious that the two were living together in New Jersey up until earlier this year. That's when French moved out to L.A. to begin working on his followup to <em>Excuse My French</em>, and where he apparently met Khloe Kardashian, who herself was fresh off her divorce from former NBA player Lamar Odom. Since then, the two had been spotted at nightclubs and restaurants around the country until they finally confirmed their relationship in recent weeks, leaving Trina to fume about lost love.
  • big-sean-naya
    <a title="sean" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/04/big-sean-and-naya-riveras-engagement-is-off/" target="_blank"><h2>Big Sean and Naya Rivera</h2></a>Everything seemed so beautiful for this young power couple, with Sean's last album, <em>Finally Famous</em>, including multiple declarations of love and happiness (although one song, "Ashley," was dedicated to his former long-term girlfriend). But things came to a crashing halt in April when, after rumors of cheating from both sides and a lot of finger pointing, Sean called off their engagement after <a title="six" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2013/10/big-sean-and-naya-rivera-are-engaged/" target="_blank">only six months</a>. The rumors flew from there—that Sean had <a title="cheated" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/04/big-sean-allegedly-cheated-naya-rivera-glee-castmate/" target="_blank">cheated with a <em>Glee</em> cast member</a>, that Rivera was<a title="fired" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/05/big-seans-ex-stays-glee-dropped-columbia/" target="_blank"> set to be fired from the show</a>, that she was controlling—but the <a title="naya" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/big-seans-ex-naya-rivera-gets-married-only-3-months-after-their-break-up/" target="_blank">real slap in the face came last month</a>, when Rivera got married, allegedly on the same date and in the same dress as she had planned to with Sean, to <em>Glee</em> co-star Ryan Dorsey.
  • Game-1
    <a title="game" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/04/games-ex-obtains-restraining-order/" target="_blank"><h2>Game and Tiffney Cambridge</h2></a>This has been a long saga, and has gotten sadder as it's gone along. After getting engaged, then calling off their engagement, then getting back together and breaking up several times in the past few years, the wheels seemed to completely come off in Game's relationship with Tiffney Cambridge this April after Cambridge filed for a <a title="order" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/04/games-ex-obtains-restraining-order/" target="_blank">restraining order </a>against the former G-Unit soldier after a reported domestic violence allegation. Game penned an open letter, claiming <a title="kids" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/04/game-says-ex-fiancee-wont-let-see-kids/" target="_blank">she wouldn't let him see his kids</a>, and <a title="cambridge" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/games-ex-fiancee-addresses-domestic-violence-rumors/" target="_blank">Cambridge responded in a video interview</a> as the tragic soap opera played out in public.
  • rihanna-drake-take-care
    <a title="drake" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/05/drake-rihanna-split-up/" target="_blank"><h2>Drake and Rihanna</h2></a>The two superstars had been<a title="dates" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/04/drake-gets-cozy-rihanna-l-nightclub/" target="_blank"> spotted on dates </a>and<a title="hands" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/03/drake-rihanna-officially-dating/" target="_blank"> holding hands</a> throughout the beginning part of the year, but they <a title="ways" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/05/drake-rihanna-split-up/" target="_blank">reportedly went their separate ways</a> in May after numerous fights due to Drake being "too in love with her," according to <em>US Weekly</em>. They've been on and off for a few years now, and with both having such busy schedules, it wouldn't be a stretch to see them back together and back apart another few times moving forward. But for now, the two are staying apart.
  • Mase-Twyla
    <a title="divorce" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/06/mase-estranged-wife-twyla-finalize-divorce/" target="_blank"><h2>Ma$e and Twyla Betha</h2></a>This one has been a long time coming. After being<a title="two" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/04/mases-divorce-wife-still-couple-separated-2-years/" target="_blank"> separated for two years</a>, the couple—together since 2001—<a title="finalized" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/06/mase-estranged-wife-twyla-finalize-divorce/" target="_blank">finalized their divorce in June</a>, with custody of the children handed over to Twyla. This came after <a title="church" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/03/mase-called-church/" target="_blank">Ma$e's church reportedly called him out </a>for living a blasphemous lifestyle and preaching about the value of marriage while his own was falling apart around him. The month prior to their divorce, Ma$e even apparently <a title="barred" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/05/mase-bans-wife-church/" target="_blank">barred Twyla from his church services</a> due to a DUI. Maybe the couple should have read a few of their <a title="help" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/03/mase-tried-secretly-divorce-wife/" target="_blank">marriage help books</a>?
  • Karlie-Redd-Young-Joc
    <a title="joc" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/yung-jocs-wife-files-divorce-seeing-love-hip-hop-atlanta-karlie-redd/" target="_blank"><h2>Young Joc and Alexandria Robinson</h2></a>Would've been pretty easy to see this one coming if you were a regular viewer of <em>Love &amp; Hip-Hop Atlanta</em>. Joc and his wife had been separated since February 2012, but after the Atlanta rapper went on the <a title="redd" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/04/yung-joc-joining-love-hip-hop-atlanta/" target="_blank">reality show with new girlfriend Karlie Redd</a> (pictured above) and laid his relationship out for the world to see, <a title="divorce" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/yung-jocs-wife-files-divorce-seeing-love-hip-hop-atlanta-karlie-redd/" target="_blank">Robinson filed for divorce in July</a>, with adultery the official reason for ending the couple's 13-year marriage. Lesson learned?
  • Chris-Brown-Karrueche
    <a title="dumped" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/chris-brown-says-dumped-ex-girlfriend-karrueche-tran/" target="_blank"><h2>Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran</h2></a>It's the relationship that seemed like it went on forever. How many times did they get back together? It's hard to keep track. But even after Tran<a title="bids" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/05/chris-brown-sentenced-to-4-months-in-jail/" target="_blank"> held him down through his prison bids</a> earlier this year and his repeated dalliances with ex-girlfriend Rihanna, Brown <a title="chick" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/chris-brown-says-dumped-ex-girlfriend-karrueche-tran/" target="_blank">reportedly dumped his ride or die chick</a> earlier this month. Finger pointing soon followed, with Tran calling him "<a title="child" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/chris-brown-rihanna-instagram/" target="_blank">immature, like a child</a>," while <a title="back" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/chris-brown-says-dumped-ex-girlfriend-karrueche-tran/" target="_blank">Brown fired back </a>with claims that Tran had been sending photos to other guys while the two were together. The <a title="interviews" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/karrueche-tran-opens-relationship-chris-brown/" target="_blank">interviews she gave</a> about their relationship didn't help, either.
  • chyna-blac-tyga
    <a title="tyga" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/tyga-blac-chyna-break/" target="_blank"><h2>Tyga and Blac Chyna</h2></a>No matter how you felt about this couple, their breakup, <a title="yesterday" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/tyga-blac-chyna-break/" target="_blank">announced yesterday</a>, is pretty sad. The two seemed genuinely in love with each other, and most importantly, had an <a title="cairo" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2013/10/tyga-and-blac-chyna-celebrate-their-sons-first-birthday-with-kim-kardashian/" target="_blank">incredibly adorable child, King Cairo</a>, who isn't yet two years old. After first getting together in 2011, the couple eventually got engaged, only to have<a title="rumors" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/blac-chyna-shoots-rumors-infidelity/" target="_blank"> rumors of infidelity</a> undermine their relationship in recent months. Even as recently as a couple months ago Tyga was defending Chyna's honor, getting into a <a title="durk" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/04/lil-durk-tyga-diss/" target="_blank">heated war of words and diss records with <em>XXL </em>Freshman Lil Durk</a>, after Durk tossed an innocent line about Blac Chyna into a track and Tyga asked him to remove it. Alas, there goes another one.
  • Ciara-Future
    <a title="future" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/future-ciara-break/" target="_blank"><h2>Future and Ciara</h2></a>Love really is dead, you guys. Just months after the birth of their<a title="boy" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/06/future-ciara-share-pictures-baby/" target="_blank"> beautiful baby boy</a>, rumors of<a title="break" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/08/future-ciara-break/" target="_blank"> cheating and infidelity led to Ciara breaking off her engagement </a>with Future after 10 months. This after Ciara gave an<a title="e" href="http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2014/07/ciara-opens-plans-futures-wedding/" target="_blank"> interview to E! </a>last month talking about how excited she was for her impending wedding. They really don't love you no more, huh? We really believed in this one, too.
