Top Celebrity Breakups of 2011

It's hard to keep a relationship going when you are in the public eye 24/7. The pressures of stardom took their toll on a number of couples in 2011. Hollie Woods, WDW Entertainment Reporter, looks at the most note-able bust ups this year.

    "I'll be back"... well no you won't Arnie! Married for 25yrs the "Terminator" and the "Kennedy" seemed an unlikely match at first but grew to be the ultimate "power couple".

    We knew it would have taken something pretty big to split these two up - they survived many smaller scandals involving Schwarzenegger and alleged inappropriateness towards females.

    But finding out that your husband had an affair with the maid and fathered a child with the maid at the same time he fathered your own child is pretty devastating!

    With Schwarzenegger being worth $300US million and Shriver worth $100US million and no pre-nup its sure to be a 50/50 split and that is great news for Shriver - but we think she deserves half of his fortune for raising their kids, putting her own career on hold to support him as Governor and the humiliation of the circumstances of their split.

  3. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

    The fairy-tale romance is over.

    After just over two months of marriage under her belt, Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from her basketballer hubby Kris Humphries, citing irreconcilable differences.

    We kinda saw it coming - even Kim's sister Chloe called it from the very beginning saying that it wouldn't last.

    We think Kim loved the idea of being married but didn't "love" the guy she chose to marry. She did it for all the wrong reasons - and he was all wrong for her.

    We hope Kim learns some lessons for next time - because there will be a next time we are sure of that!

  4. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore

    Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are no more.

    And no matter how many red flags and warning signs we spotted on the way to this point, it doesn't make the end any less sad.

    There may still be hope for this couple but as it is all contingent on Kutcher behaving himself we don't think Moore will be confident in giving him yet another chance.

    With this latest split - it's not looking good for "toy boy" relationships lasting the distance. What a shame!

  5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

    Wow. We did NOT see this one coming.

    According to a joint statement:
    "We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters. It is a painful time for all involved, and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time."

    So unexpected! What happened?? Perhaps he was a control freak, perhaps she was too focused on her career... I doubt we will ever truly know what happened.

    Either way, it seems they will keep a business partnership and keep things amicable for the sake of their two gorgeous little kids!

  6. Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene

    These two made a cute couple and we hoped it might have lasted a bit longer than it did. Being so young, so popular and with so much ahead of you its hard to commit yourself to being part of an all consuming relationship.

    Joe was reported as saying “I think what works about it is she really puts my feelings first. She understands my busy schedule.”

    Hmmmm... maybe not Joe!

  7. Bar Refaeli and Leonardo DiCaprio

    We thought Refaeli would be the girl to settle Leo down! Their relationship lasted four years and even though they had a 6 month "break" they still managed to reconcile. We thought it was looking good for this super glam couple.

    Unfortunately neither were ready to settle down, and both have busy careers that were constantly taking them in different directions. In a celebrity couple usually one person has to compromise their career and it seems neither of these two were willing to do that and their relationship suffered!

    Since his May split with Refaeli, DiCaprio has hit the town and partied hard! He has been seen taking some of the most popular and beautiful A-listers around on his arm including Blake Lively, Alyce Crawford and Erin Heatherton.

  8. Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight

    When the Brady Bunch kid married America's Next Top Model we loved it! What an unlikely couple! But they seemed so in love and it seemed that their differences was what kept their relationship exciting.

    People tuned in all over the world to watch their reality TV series that documented their engagement, wedding and first year of marriage.

    However, 5 years on and it seemed as though those same differences that they once loved in each other spelt the end of their marriage.

    We also think that the age difference between them (Curry is 28, Knight is 53) played a part in their split.

  9. Macaulay Culkin and Mila Kunis

    This couple called it quits after 8 years together. Many people didn't even know they were a couple as they kept their private lives so low key!

    Dating since 2002, the split was reported as amicable, and they remain close friends.

    According to a source, the couple went their separate ways months before they actually split but they decided to keep it quiet while Kunis promoted "Black Swan."

    We think it was probably Kunis that was responsible for the split with the actress very open about her fear of settling down with Culkin, telling people that the prospect of marriage didn't appeal to her.

  10. Jessica Szohr and Ed Westwick

    If you have watched Gossip Girl then you'd agree that Szohr and Westwick would seem like the most unlikely couple! But in real life these two were very much in love and committed for almost three years.
    That is until on her 25th birthday Szohr got a little too close to one of Westwick’s buddies. Westwick was away in Europe filming but his friends about town clued him into what happened.

    Westwick was heartbroken and ended the relationship via telephone. Szohr begged to be taken back but Westwick held his ground.

    What a shame.

  11. Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard

    Sadly this super hot couple who seemed to have it all did not last the test of time. What a shame - can you even imagine how gorgeous their kids would have been!

    So, what went wrong? No-one really knows why this couple split but we notice that Skarsgard is quite happy being single and is lapping up all the attention - so maybe it was he that didn't want to be caught up in Bosworth's shadow?
