The odds are stacked against celebrity romances lasting forever. Demanding schedules, long separations, and the temptation of adoring fans and hot co-workers are difficult to overcome. Still, some celebrity couples seem like they’re destined to beat the odds. Until they don’t. Here are ten celebrity couple break ups that shocked and surprised us all.
6. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
Kim and Kris aren’t on this list because their marriage ended but because of how quickly it happened. After a 72-day marriage, Kardashian filed for divorce. We were surprised because “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” aired on E! to great ratings just 3 weeks before the filing. As a result, the whole country wondered whether the marriage was a publicity stunt to boast the ratings for “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s “conscious uncoupling” shocked us all. Check out these 6 surprising celebrity break ups that none of us saw coming.
