Clearly, celebrity relationships cannot be sustained. Okay, that might be a bit of an overstatement, but it certainly seems that way considering the high volume of famous-people break ups taking place on what seems like a daily basis. While some celebrity splits are wholly predictable (ahem Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison, not that we’re calling them celebrities per se), others take Hollywood—and the rest of us—by surprise (Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom, sniff.)
This year also brought it with two big break ups within one family (Kris and Bruce Jenner and Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom), a split that resulted in dramatic anthems (you do know “Wrecking Ball” is about Miley’s break from Liam, right?), and oh so many more.
