Kristen Stewart Robert PattinsonDoesn'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?

Amy Poehler & Will Arnett

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.'
