Top 5 Celebrity Breakups of 2011
Most relationships are made with the intention to never end, but sometimes, somehow or somewhere along the line, the sparks and the trust may fade away and then the romance goes.
Breakups can happen to anyone, but celebrities are the ones whose affairs get the most attention. As the end of 2011 nears, here’s the 5 celebrity breakups of the year:
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher
Demi Moore decided to end her marriage to Ashton Kutcher in November after six years.
”It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife, there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation,” Moore said in her statement to the Associated Press.
The separation allegedly happened because rumors of Ashton’s infidelity. With a 15-year gap between Demi (49) and Kutcher (33), the divorce seemed to be expected by the public, despite some arguments saying that the age difference was irrelevant.
Was it a shocking breakup or an “I told you so” moment?
Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger
A recent report by celebrity gossip Web site TMZ said that Shriver was considering putting her divorce from the former California governor on hold.
That’s probably the nicest Christmas gift for the Schwarzenegger family, but remember why they got into the divorce case in the first place. With the couple getting back together, is it really the best step to take?
Earlier this year, a report came out stating that Schwarzenegger had an affair and a love child with a trusted family maid Mildred Baena, who kept the secret for almost 14 years.
An article by the Daily Mail included a statement from a family friend: “Arnold desperately wants Maria to forgive him and take him back, but she can’t get past his deception at this point. However, he still has a strong emotional influence over her.”
Should Maria get back together with Arnold?
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony
J. Lo announced her divorce from Marc Anthony in August after seven years of marriage.
Recently, their divorce is getting a lot uglier than it seemed when it first reported. Apparently the two are ready to fight for custody of their twins, Emme and Max.
Allegedly, Marc was not too happy with the bond between J. Lo’s new lover Casper Smart and the couple’s children.
However, it didn’t take Marc long to move on, either. A report by the Australian publication The Herald said the Latin singer was spotted having a lunch date with a rumored new girlfriend, model Adriana Ontiveros.
Who will win the war?
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Kim Kardashian. There’s always something going with her.
Recently, she called off her marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries after just 10 weeks being together.
”After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kardashian said in a statement published by entertainment channel E! Online.
The lavish wedding took place on Aug. 20 and was televised on Oct. 9 and 10 by E!
According to the AP, “the couple’s wedding registry at a Beverly Hills jeweler included such items as a $1,650 coffee pot and two $1,250 sterling silver vegetable spoons.”
Kris is now seeking an annulment.
Was it really love? Or was it just a show?
Jesse James and Kat Von D
Reason for the breakup: Jesse James cheated on Kat Von D with at least 19 women. Yikes!
Did history repeat itself? In his previous relationship, James also cheated on Sandra Bullock with a girl named Michelle “Bombshell” McGee.
Do you think he will ever be able to keep it in his pants?
