5 Celebrities Who Keep In Touch With Their Exes

When a relationship has run its course, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to cut that person out of your life after the split – many exes stay in touch and have even become close friends despite the relationship breaking down.  These 5 celebrities say they all keep in touch with their old other halves. Some just casually contact them from time to time to see how their lives are going, while others still get on very well and have a close bond.

Denise Richards


Denise has remained friends with ex Richie Sambora: “We’re friends, we went through a lot. Years ago we both lost our parents at the same time and going through other stuff so we’ll always have a bond with each other and we will stay good friends forever.”

Ellie Goulding

Ellie is still close friends with ex-boyfriend Skrillex: “It’s literally because we didn’t see each other enough. It’s really sad. He’s one of my best mates, it’s a shame. He is a really beautiful person, he’s the nicest human being. He’s very kind and we connect. He’s a really wonderful person. It’s good just to even have him as a mate.”

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer loves to stay in contact: “I’ve had some awesome relationships. Whether they lasted a long time or not, all of them were great. I learned from every single one of the. I know they were in my life for a reason – part of my destiny. I think it’s nice to keep in touch.”

Mollie King

Mollie likes to stay friends with her exes but needs time to heal first: ”It’s really hard when it’s fresh; you can’t go from being in love to friends overnight. I’ve always had to take time apart after a break-up. When they’re with somebody new and you’re single that really hurts, but it’s easier when you move on.Recently there were some pictures of me and David sat next to one another at the same tennis match and the pictures could not have been more unfortunate. It looked like we hated each other, but we do actually get on. Just as I do with Andy. I’ve stayed friends with all my ex-boyfriends, which is nice because we often bump into each other at events.”

Rachel McAdams

Rachel tries to remain friends with old boyfriends: ”Am I still friends with my old boyfriends? Yes, absolutely. There’s no one who’s ever been significantly in my life for whom I don’t have a sort of tenderness because they helped to shape who I am. However long someone is in your life, they’re there to teach us something and I try to make the most of any relationship.”
