Didn’t You Think They’d Last? 7 Surprising Celebrity Breakups

Even though celebrities and real-life acquaintances remind us every day that love (fifty percent of the time) doesn’t last forever, we’re still sad to see couples that we really love break up – especially ones that we believe would’ve made it for the long haul.  For one reason or another, these celeb breakups blindsided us!


Seal & Heidi Klum

I just…don’t know where “we” went wrong here, people.  Of course, not “we” literally but Seal and Heidi just seemed so good together. Yes, they gave us PDA and multiple wedding ceremonies but it was more than that; they just seemed so cool with each other. I still feel some kind of way that it is really over between them.


Nas & Kelis

These two were a hot hip-hop couple and seemed so down for each other. But amid allegations of infidelity, they just couldn’t make it work.  They share an adorable son so hopefully they can “keep it cute” for his sake.


Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore

Sadly, I didn’t think these two would make it “the distance.” However, after so many years of them going strong, I felt really good about them. But Ashton…well, it seems from the messages Demi was sending out at the time of their announced separation, he just wouldn’t do right.  The once-reigning Queen of Cougars is trying to get herself together, allegedly having left rehab a few months ago.  Divorce isn’t easy even if it is the “right thing to do.”


Kenny Lattimore & Chante Moore

By a show of e-hands, how many of you ever thought that Chante (or any other woman for that matter) was Kenny’s type? Alright, now that I got that out my system, Kenny and Chante were married for 9 years and it seemed pretty blissful. I mean, they made beautiful music together and everything (those duet cds were the JAMS) but last year, Chante announced out of nowhere that she and Kenny were divorced. Talk about shocked!!


Kobe & Vanessa Bryant

After all these two had been through and what Vanessa had been putting up with, I just knew that she’d sit back, deal with it and enjoy her lifestyle (no matter the emotional cost).  But then…POW! December 2011 came and divorce papers were filed citing irreconcilable differences. Nessa “did her bid” of a little over 10 years to get that proper alimony (not saying it is right, I’m just saying what it is) and said “ENOUGH.”  As it stands, the finances have been broken down so all that seems left is to sign the papers; but, Vanessa was spotted giving Kobe a smooch at his V-day game in her finest linens sooo…we’ll see how if they really divorce.


Marc Anthony & Jennifer Lopez

Although this one took us for a loop, people had lots to say about this because Jenny started messing with Marc while he was still married to his ex-wife. Karma? I don’t know because we don’t know the reason they broke up but for the sake of their twins, they seem semi-cordial.  Marc seems intense though so I wonder if that contributed to the break-up. (Lord, please don’t let Jenny marry that young, opportunistic, gecko looking boy.)


Jesse James & Sandra Bullock

There Sandy was on stage accepting her Oscar for her role in The Blind Side, thanking this man Jesee damn near through snot tears for supporting her and loving her; meanwhile, back at the ranch, Jesse is texting and sexing other women. One day, we’re all happy for them and the next day we’re dropping our jaws because they just as quickly split up.  Clearly, I still don’t like how it went down but one good thing came out of it: the adoption of baby Louis Bardo and his cute self!
