2014 has barely just begun and it’s still the middle of winter, yet some celebrities can’t wait to do some spring cleaning and shed their significant others. Perhaps some of these splits were brewing long before and just came to a head recently. Regardless, these four surprising celebrity breakups should lead anyone to ponder just who may be the next casualty in the many months of this year ahead.
Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes
Attractive and long-term couple Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes have allegedly been having issues and rifts for a while now. Supposedly, Mendes enjoys going out and partying while Gosling prefers a quieter life and staying in. For such pretty people in a seemingly perfect relationship, the two went out with a whimper instead of bang. Only outside sources confirmed the split, which seemed to occur due to the issues above.
Martin Kristen and Heidi Klum
When supermodel Heidi Klum’s marriage to singer Seal dissolved a few years ago in 2010, she turned to the trustworthy and burly shoulder of her bodyguard Martin Kristen. Before the ink on her divorce papers even dried, Klum was stepping out with her new man. However, after a few years together, the couple have apparently split. There’s no word yet on what caused the rift.
Mike Comrie and Hilary Duff
On a sadder note than the other splits, married couple Mike Comrie and Hilary Duff started of the year with news that they had decided to divorce. The hockey athlete and singer/actress had been married for nearly four years at this point and even had a son together named Luca, born in 2012. The ex-couple released a statement encouraging their future support of each other and their son. According to that statement, the split was both of their choices.
Marc Anthony and Chloe Green
It must be tough watching his ex-wife Jennifer Lopez date a much younger man for a long span of time. Marc Anthony seemed pretty happy himself for a while there with his own younger girlfriend Chloe Green. More than just eye candy, Green also works as the heiress and sometimes designer at UK retailer Topshop. Overall, the couple remained together a little over a year. Supposedly, the standard crazy schedules excuse came up as the reason for the split.
While hearts and flowers have become a February trademark, these four celebrity couples aren’t feeling the love. Each split early in 2014, leading a year of breakups.
