Doesn't it seem like there were a TON of celebrity breakups in 2012? I mean, I guess there are a lot every year, since Hollywood relationships aren't always built on the most rock-solid of foundations, but 2012 had enough divorces and splits to keep the tabloids bursting with gossip on a weekly basis (when they weren't predicting nonexistent pregnancies, of course).
It's interesting to review some of the biggest -- and most surprising -- splits, and marvel at the fact that they all happened in just one year. Time flies when you're (not) having fun, right? Check out this list of the top TK celebrity breakups that made headlines in 2012.
Who did I forget about? Whose breakup was the biggest surprise for you?
I'm filing this breakup under Most Depressing, Like For Real, This Sucks. Who wasn't bummed at the idea of this hilarious, likable couple's nine-year marriage falling apart? It was extra sad because they have two young toddler sons, but in the end, things collapsed under that age-old problem, "irreconcilable differences.'
Who could forget the cheating scandal heard 'round the world? Thank goodness for the millions of die-hard Robsten fans, these lovebirds seem to have moved past the summer's ... indiscretions.
It was upsetting enough when this seemingly bulletproof couple announced their split, but then things got even worse, with nasty allegations by Seal that Heidi didn't wait long enough before she started "fornicating with the help."
I guess the truly surprising thing about Katie Holmes divorcing Tom Cruise was that she pulled it off -- and did it with near-military precision. Amid the lingering cloud of rumors, we'll likely never know what really compelled her to leave ... but we were rooting for her all along, weren't we?
Here's another one we never saw coming. After more than 30 years of marriage -- which is, like, FOREVER in Hollywood -- Danny and Rhea separated in October.
This genetically-blessed twosome spent months batting aside rumors that their relationship was on the rocks, but finally announced their separation in June. Depp and Paradis were never married, but they'd stayed together for 14 years -- and have two children: Lily-Rose, 13, and Jack, 10.
Jonas, Gyllenhaal, Mayer, Lautner, Styles, Kennedy ... look, I can't keep track of who all Taylor Swift is never ever getting back together with, like ever. On the plus side, all these breakups are awesome for album sales.
Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. You're saying that a relationship engineered by a marriage reality show didn't last? IS NOTHING SACRED??
