Top Ten Celebrity Breakups of 2010

[ 3 ] January 17, 2011 |

This past year we’ve seen A LOT of breakups in the celebrity world…but is that anything to be shocked about? Well, no. But it sure is fun to talk about! So, let’s take a look back at 2010 and relive the breakups that gave us something to gossip about.

10) Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

After more than a year of dating, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth called it quits.

The actors fended off breakup rumors for months, and in June, Cyrus denied the split, telling fans on her Web site that they were “so happy.”

Last time I checked they were back together. But, who really knows anymore!?

9)  Kim Kardashian and Reggie Bush

This one was pretty surprising since they had been together so long. The reason behind the separation is apparently because of maturity differences. READ: He wouldn’t put a ring on it.

Kim thought Reggie, who is four years younger than her, was “too young” to keep up with her plans for marriage and motherhood.

8) Courteney Cox and David Arquette

What a mess. This breakup came as a shock too many people…

First there was the rumor that Cox and Arquette had an ‘open marriage,’ which basically just means they cheated on each other all the time.

The other rumor is that the couple hadn’t had sex for months before their split-up.  But, this one comes from David Arquette, himself. David called The Howard Stern Show revealing that he and Courteney hadn’t done it in 4 months. Like we all needed to know.

7) Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva

Sometimes when a couple breaks up it’s a peaceful agreement to go their separate ways. In other cases, much like the separation of Mel and Oksana, it gets messy.

But, the word messy is really an understatement. You’ll know that if you followed the leaks of the Mel Gibson rants over the summer.

This is one angry, violent and destructive relationship. And one that was made very public in 2010.

6) Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey

Back in April, the funny duo Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey decided to go their separate ways.

Jim announced the end of their five year marriage on Twitter. “I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best! S’okay!” Carrey Tweeted.

Still, the breakup came as a surprise as the pair had always appeared to be among Hollywood’s happiest and most devoted couples. I guess all good things must come to an end. So sad. This was one of the celebrity couples that really seemed like a good pairing.  

5) Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds

This is a fairly recent breakup. It just happened in December.

Reports claimed that Ryan was open about his marital woes while filming his upcoming movie Green Lantern.

Apparently, Ryan would say that she treated him badly. It never seemed like she made him a priority.

4) Eva Longoria and Tony Parker

The Parkers are just another case of a rich man wanting to have his cake and eat it too. It makes me wonder - is it possible for an attractive male celebrity to be faithful?!

Back in In November the news came out that there were problems with their relationship. At first the couple tried to hide their separation, but soon after infidelity rumors made the headlines.

2) Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman

Now this one makes me sad…

Christina and her husband Jordan Bratman were very much in love, but over time it ­became clear they were more like friends than husband and wife.

However, they remain united in their commitment to their son, Max. As Christina said in a statement for People Magazine, ”Although Jordan and I are separated, our commitment to our son Max remains as strong as ever.”

It’ll get better, Christina! Just look how happy they were…gah! This is depressing. OK, moving on…

1) Jesse James and Sandra Bullock

This one should come at no surprise. America’s sweetheart and the cheater. Yuck.

When rumors surfaced about Jesse James’ infidelity, it was just prior to the Tiger Woods fiasco, as well as Sandra’s recent Oscar win.

The world simultaneously expressed their hatred towards Jesse and their love for Sandra.

Can we just take a moment to remember this…

What a [insert your choice profanity here]. Ugh!!!

Did we miss any on our list? Who do you think will be splitting in 2011?

    Ryan and ScarJo broke my heart. They could have had such pretty kids.

  2. Cristina says:

    Okay, I’d totally stay in a long-term commitment with Jim Carrey for the simple fact that the man’s brave enough to wear a mankini to the beach. hahahaha!! So funny.

    My prediction for a 2011 breakup is between Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez!

    There is only so many death threats via twitter a poor girl can get before she throws in the towel!
