Losing a loved one is not easy, but it is even more harder when it is someone you were dating or were engaged to for years.

Below are celebs whose boyfriends and girlfriends were snatched away by the cruel hand of death.

Prezzo and Goldie

Prezzo and his former Nigerian lover Goldie sparked rumors of a love affair back in 2012, but they did their best to keep it hush hush.

Perhaps this was on the down low because Goldie Harvey was married and it was likely to cause friction.

Their sizzling romance was apparent to many in the 2012 season of Big Brother All Star.
