Top 5 celebrity splits of 2012
People become really emotionally invested in the real life drama of their reel life idols. Here are the top 5 celebrity splits that broke the hearts of millions of fans around the world.
1. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
No one ever believed that Katie Holmes was ever truly in love with Tom Cruise though she did pretend to be blissfully happy with him for nearly five years of marriage. No one knows the real reason for the divorce but there are plenty of conspiracy theories floating around.
2. Heidi Klum and Seal
After nearly seven years of marriage, former supermodel Heidi Klum and her British R&B singer-songwriter husband Seal parted ways. The couple did not give a reason for the divorce though Seal did infamously tell TMZ that Klum should have waited till the divorce was final to sleep with her bodyguard Martin Kristen.
3. Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis
After 14-years of being together, Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis called it quits. The uber private couple has kept the details of the split to themselves though Depp did by a Hollywood mansion worth £2.7million for his former flame and their two children.
4. Katy Perry and Russell Brand
Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s split was as spectacular as their lavish wedding. The tabloid loving couple was in the news for the wrong reasons last year as their divorce finalized and gossip columnists made plenty of cash coming up with hypothetical reasons for the split. Officially, the couple has only listed ‘incompatibility’ as the reason behind their divorce.
5. Russel Crowe and Danielle Spencer
After being together for more than 9 years, which is an eternity in Hollywood terms, Danielle Spencer and Russel Crowe announced their split last October. Following the announcement, Crowe moved to New York to shoot for a new project while Danielle stayed behind to look after thier two sons in Sydney.
