For some big names in Hollywood, 2012 has been the year of the breakup! Many Hollywood couples have called it quits this past year. Some have been some short-term love affairs that fizzled, while others were long-term marriages that shockingly came to an end. Check out our list of the 2012 Celebrity Breakups.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
This was the big shocker of the summer, as Katie Holmes filed for divorce from Tom Cruise after five years of marriage. It even shocked Tom, but they settled everything in court within two two weeks, so props to them for not dragging it out and making it ugly.
Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson
This one didn’t last long. After just 42 days of marriage, Evelyn Lozada filed for divorce from Chad Johnson after he was arrested for a domestic dispute for headbutting Evelyn.
Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman
How could this happen? Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman were married for 30 years and dated for 12 years before tying the knot and then 42 years later they decide it is not working? Something seems shady here!
Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart
Once a cheater always a cheater? Robert Pattinson is about to find out, as Kristen Stewart was caught cheating with the director of her hit movie Snow White and the Huntsman. Robert kicked her out of their house they shared and Twilight fans went crazy! The couple seems to be working it out and possibly back together now?
Heidi Klum and Seal
We started 2012 off with a bang when Heidi Klum and Seal announced their separation in January. The couple was married for seven years and renewed their vows every year! It has gotten dirty since and Seal accused Heidi of cheating with the bodyguard, whom she is now dating!
Amy Poehler and Will Arnett
I was hoping this was a joke when the announcement came that Amy Poehler and Will Arnett were splitting after nine years of marriage, but that was not the case. I guess laughs can’t always make a happy couple.
Eva Longoria and Mark Sanchez
Eva Longoria is one to get around with the men, but with looks like that everyone wants her. She recently dated New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, but the romance fizzled after a couple months and they ended it.
Adam Levine and Anne Vyalitsyna
The hot couple made it work for two years, but in April they announced they were breaking up. The Voice coach/Maroon 5 lead singer and Victoria Secret’s model made many people happy when they were both on the market again.
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis
The couple was never married, but they were together 14 years and have two children together, but things went sour and they ended it in June.
Joe and Tina Simpson
The parents of Jessica and Ashlee Simpson shockingly filed for divorce last month after 34 years of marriage! The rumors are now that Joe Simpson is gay, but he is denying it.
Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth
Another Twilight actor made the list, as Peter Facinelli and 90210 star Jennie Garth announced their separation. They were married 11 years, but apparently his success upset Jennie.
Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy
Taylor Swift makes the list? The bigger shocker is that she only made the list one time! The big relationship is when she dated a Kennedy! Her and Conor Kennedy had a summer romance, but that has gone away and like most of Taylor’s relationships, it ended and I am sure she is writing a damn song about it!
Chris Harrison and Gwen Jones
How can the host of the shows where the couples are supposed to find love (The Bachelor and The Bachelorette on ABC) get a divorce himself? I guess Chris Harrison is leading by example, as most of the couples on these shows never make it work. Chris’ did make it work for 18 years until this big news came out.
Jenny McCarthy and Brian Urlacher
Jenny McCarthy has had her share of men over the years, but this was one that may have possibly worked. They kept it under wraps for a while, but then Jenny moved to Chicago and a lot of people thought it was very serious, however it ended shortly after the move.
