Am I the only one who thinks this is awkward?

The Exes Roundup

The Met Gala might be the most glamorous night of the year, but gathering every A-lister together for one night of fashionable celebration has one unfortunate (yet still glam) side effect: a lot of celeb exes in the same building. TBH, the drama only makes it more exciting, so let’s round up the celeb exes at the 2022 Met Gala — awkward run-ins unfortunately not guaranteed.

Phoebe Dynevor And Pete Davidson

Phoebe Dynevor and Pete Davidson dated from April 2021 to August 2021, so yes, their romance was pretty short-lived. Still! Going to the Met Gala only to see Davidson with his new girlfriend, ahem, Kim Kardashian, feels unfairly awkward.

Dynevor actually arrived at the Met Gala way before Kete, so there were no awkward run-ins on the red carpet. TBH, I can’t imagine Dynevor was that concerned. She channelled major Diamond of the First Water energy all night.

Davidson and Kardashian were two of the last people to make their way up the steps of the Met, but the wait was definitely worth it. Even if Davidson is looking a bit like Kardashian’s bodyguard in the pics.

PETE DAVIDSON AND KAIA GERBER

The BDE comedian had a second ex in attendance, too. (What else would you expect?) He and Kaia Gerber dated for four months in late 2019 and early 2020.

KAIA GERBER AND JACOB ELORDI

Gerber was navigating two exes, too. She and Jacob Elordi reportedly broke up in November 2021 after nearly a year together (and this super cute red carpet appearance). And yep, they were both at the Met.

Elordi embraced his single status and hit the red carpet alone. It wasn’t necessarily a bad decision — in this tux, he looks like the next James Bond to me.

Kaia And Austin Had Their Red Carpet Debut

The couple could not stop making eyes at each other at the Met. (No word yet if Elordi had any uncomfortable interactions with the newly-official couple, though!)

Austin Butler And Vanessa Hudgens

Speaking of Butler, his longtime ex Vanessa Hudgens was also in attendance. The High School Musical star was one of the events co-hosts, but I think she lucked out of having to interview her ex.

In a completely sheer Moschino gown, Hudgens was dressed to impress. Also, I have to say this is the ultimate oops-I-ran-into-my-ex outfit.

Shawn Mendes And Camila Cabello

After over two years together, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello broke up in November 2021. Since then, the duo has made it clear that they miss one another, both releasing music about the aftermath of their split.

Cabello wore a two-piece Prabal Gurung dress for the event, and the flowery ensemble was nothing short of stunning.

Despite the potential of running into his ex, Mendes was apparently feeling peaceful on the red carpet.

Shawn Mendes And Hailey Bieber

Although these two never publicly labeled their relationship, they were often spotted together in the spring of 2018, including a stroll up the Met steps at that year’s gala.

After stepping out with Mendes at the 2018 Met Gala in May, she reunited with Justin Bieber in June, and they got hitched that September. The “Peaches” singer was by her side at the 2021 Met Gala — when fans reportedly chanted Selena Gomez’s name to intimidate the Biebers — but this year, she rocked the carpet by herself.

Gigi Hadid And Joe Jonas

Back in 2015, Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas were together for five head-turning months. Though they’ve since moved on, their romance will always be a nostalgic favorite.

Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner attended the Met Gala together, looking very sweet and in love, if not obviously on theme.

Clearly, Hadid was dressed to brave any environment — including one that involved an ex from seven years ago.

Brooklyn Peltz Beckham And Chloë Grace Moretz

Talk about throwbacks! These two had a rollercoaster of a relationship, dating on and off between 2014 and 2018. While their romance ultimately didn’t work out, they seriously knew how to pull off matching denim.

Of course, Brooklyn is now one half of the Peltz Beckhams. He and Nicola Peltz Beckham tied the knot (and took each other’s names) three weeks before this year’s Met Gala.

Meanwhile, Moretz walked the Met steps solo, looking fierce in a Louis Vuitton outfit and faux pixie cut. Brooklyn who?

Aren’t you grateful you dodged your exes while watching the Met Gala on your couch at home? Total bliss.
