Ashlee Simpson and actor Vincent Piazza. After a year and a half, the flame burnt out over Thanksgiving. The official story is the rift was caused by too much work, and the split was mutual. Isn’t it always? The weirdest part is that we don't even know actor Piazza's age, because it hasn't been officially released. Who wants to take a guess?

Danii Minogue and Kris Smith. The former X-Factor judge met the English model Kris Smith in Ibiza – not a place often associated with eternal love. After four years and the birth of their son Ethan, Minogue split from Smith in April, announcing it over Twitter. Is Twitter the new pigeon carrier for relationship goss?

Ashley Greene and Reeve Carney. Twilight star Ashley Greene, 25, known for her impeccable taste in men, she’s dated Joe Jonas and Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill. But this year she decided she just needed to focus on her career. We guess the 29-year-old singer-songwriter and actor was being an energy drain.

Katy Perry and John Mayer. Katy has been said to end her on-and-off-again relationship as John cannot commit. Was her song Hot N Cold actually a premonition about him?

Scarlett Johansson and Nate Naylor. The 27-year-old Hollywood starlet and the 38-year-old ad executive have ended their relationship after seven months, allowing men everywhere to celebrate Scarlett’s single status.

Molly King and David Gandy. The 25-year-old British singer-songwriter and 32-year-old British model were destined to have beautiful, symmetrical-featured babies until their 10-month love story died with an April break up.

Joe Simpson and Tina Simpson. There’ll be two Christmas parties to attend for Ashlee and Jessica this year, after their parents have decided to split their 35-year marriage. A male model was claiming to be his boyfriend, earlier this year. Joe is denying the rumours.

Seal and Heidi Klum. One of our favourite glamour couples filed for divorce on the grounds of "irreconcilable differences" after being together for seven years and having four children. Halloween won’t be the same without images of their awesome couple costumes.
9 / 16
Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer. There has been no official announcement, but the marriage is over. Considering Crowe was spotted at a strip club seven months into their marriage, when Spencer, now 43, was eight months pregnant, we’re surprised it lasted another nine years.
10 / 16
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. TomKat are no more! Apparently, he was blindsided by the split but we’re not. We’re surprised their six-year marriage lasted as long as it did.
11 / 16
Simon Cowell and Mezghan Hussainy. We’re not surprised things ended between the 39-year-old Afghani makeup artist and 53-year-old X-Factor judge. But we’re impressed Simon gave her five million pound Beverley Hills house as an I’m-calling-off-the-engagement present. Is that the price of a broken heart?
12 / 16
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. The musical duo have split although the Beebz, 18, isn’t willing to let go and is still trying to make amends with the 20-year-old actress. They've been together for two years. A lot of rumours are flying about whether they are getting back together. We’ll wait for the official Twitter announcement.
13 / 16
Harry Styles and Caroline Flack. One Direction 18-year-old singer and 32-year-old UK X-Factor presenter ended their three-month Mrs. Robinson-esque romance after a backlash from fans. If you believe the pics, he's just gone public with Taylor Swift. Hopefully their fans will approve.
14 / 16
Daniel Radcliffe and Rosie Coker. The 23-year-old Harry Potter star and 23-year-old production assistant have ended things because the magic had gone. After two and a half years, we can't even find a photo of them together. Potter, we mean Radcliffe, has said she was too good for him. Rumour has it, he had a fling with another actress on set. Harry, no!
15 / 16
Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. "Amicably separated" after 14 years of keeping-out-of the-spotlight together, they’re now keeping-out-of-the-spotlight apart. Sad face.
16 / 16
Amy Poehler and Will Arnett. The SNL duo have filed for a divorce after a nine-year marriage, leaving us for the first time not with tears of laughter but that of sadness.
