Here, 15 particularly shocking celebrity breakups, and let us know which ones surprised you most—and which ones you saw coming from a mile away.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick

As is the Kardashian way, Kourt soon proved she didn’t need Scott by debuting a hot new body and a rumored rebound with Justin Bieber.
