Splits and Misses: 2013’s Biggest Break-Ups
We Count Down The Separations That Tugged At Our Heartstrings
2012 may have been the end of the world, but 2013 was the end of the line for some of the biggest celebrity couples! So who split this year?
5. Shane Warne and Liz Hurley
While still officially unconfirmed, the unlikely pair affectionately labelled “Shurley” looked like they were making their Brady-Bunch style blended family work until recent tweets indicated otherwise.
4. Demi and Ashton
While they technically split nearly two years ago and Ashton has well and truly moved on with former That 70’s Show costar Mila Kunis; the former Mr. and Mrs. Kutcher win Scoopla’s WTF prize for only finalising their divorce this month.
3. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Coming in as a late (but largely unsurprising) entry, the rumours had been swirling about this couple for months. The most surprising thing about it was how quickly the pre-nup clad divorce was filed, mere hours after it was announced. Most people could see this one coming after a video leaked in which Odom spoke like a man who was already separated combined with substance abuse rumours to create a perfect storm. It was a year of change for the Kardashian Klan, as the divorce comes after matriarch Kris announced a split from second husband Bruce Jenner.
2. Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi
After a UK tabloid posted explosive pictures of art collector Saatchi with his hands around the celebrity chef’s neck back in June, few were surprised when their divorce was announced in July. The couple have been bogged down in controversy since, with Nigella accused of habitual cocaine use during her aide's fraud trial this month.
1. Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr
It was the split that was heard around the world – it did, after all, go “KerrBLOOM!” Apart from launching a thousand bad puns, this October break-up mostly just depressed us. If two insanely beautiful millionaires can’t make it work, what hope is there for the rest of us? Adding to the surprise factor was the news that the pair had actually split months ago and were keeping friendly for son Flynn.
