After rumours of Ankita Lokhande and Sushant Singh Rajput's split, now another star couple — Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel — has parted ways. It seems 2016 will make a history of break-ups in the entertainment world.

Upen confirmed the split with Karishma on Twitter, writing: "Me and Karishma have both agreed to part ways. Thank you for all your love. [sic]" Though he deleted this tweet after a while, another post of him gave a hint regarding their break up. SpotboyE has a screenshot of the deleted tweet.

"2 much has come 2light & shown its true colours. love is never easy and when a certain foundation is broken it's impossible 2move forward, [sic]" Upen tweeted. The duo had found love during the eighth edition of the controversial show "Bigg Boss," and were expected to tie the knot soon.

After falling in love in the "Bigg Boss 8" house, Upen and Karishma, lovingly named "Upma" by their fans, had also participated in dance reality show "Nach Baliye 7," where they took their relationship to the next level by getting engaged on the show. Soon after, their popularity bagged them another show, "Love School," where the couple mentored eight young couples on love and relationship.

The rumours of their break up were doing the rounds for quite some time, but Karishma had refuted them, saying every couple has issues and overcomes them, and no relationship is perfect. But, now it looks like the couple couldn't overcome their problems, which made the two call it quits.

Karishma and Upen took to Twitter to give a hint to their fans about their split.

The year 2016 began with the news of several break-ups that shocked everyone. Katrina Kaif-Ranbir Kapoor, Farhan Akhtar-Adhuna Bhabani, Arbaaz Khan-Malaika Arora, Ankita-Sushant, Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma (this couple has reportedly reunited), Pulkit Samrat-Shweta Rohira, Kritika Kamra-Siddharth Bijpuria, Sara Khan-Rishabh Tandon, Anas Rashid-Rati Pandey are among the pairs who parted ways this year.
