16. Liam Hemsworth and Mily Cyrus

Liam Hemsworth called off his engagement to Miley Cyrus this year after a four year romance.

Despite enjoying a two-year on and off relationship, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez decided to go their separate ways. Gomez opened about the break up to Ryan Seacrest. “I’m sure you could actually see those pictures of me being, like, way stressed out about it. And it’s hard, because what do you do? Do you just wanna sit in your house and hide and not go anywhere?”

14. Rupert Sanders and Liberty Ross

Liberty Ross pulled the plug on her 10-year marriage to Rupert Sanders this past January, almost six months after intimate photos of Sanders and Kristen Stewart surfaced. Ross handled the entire scandal like a pro. “I just visualized [being] this sort of Masai warrior. I was just going to stand very still and very strong, and just let it all roll past me,” Ross had said.

After three years of marriage, Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have called it quits. The split was amicable and Bloom and Kerr are going to ensure that they provide a loving home for their son Flynn. “Life sometimes doesn’t work out exactly as we plan or hope for,” Bloom told Katie Couric. “But we’re adults, I’m 36 and now she’s 30. We’re professionals. We love and care about each other. Most of all, we love our son.”

6. Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner

Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner announced their separation in October of this year. Although much of their marital discord was captured on their reality show “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” their decision to live apart was a good one. “She supports me. I see her every day. We’re doing absolutely great,” Bruce said. Let’s hope this continues!

3. Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough

This couple initially blamed hectic work schedules for their split, but our sources say that Julianne Hough’s lifestyle began to bother Ryan Seacrest. The two dated for three years and with the age difference – Seacrest is 38 and Hough is only 24 – it seems inevitable that they were headed for Splitsville.

2. Jason Trawick and Britney Spears

Jason Trawick and Britney Spears mutually decided to end their one-year engagement earlier this year. Some sources claim that she wanted more children and he didn’t want to start a family. Either way, this break up inspired some songs on her latest album, so artistically the beak up had some benefits.

1. Michael Sheen and Rachel McAdams

Michael Sheen and Rachel McAdams split up earlier this year and rumor has it that it was because Sheen wasn’t interested in settling down. Apparently, Rachel wanted a family and Sheen already has a child with Kate Beckinsdale, so he does not want anymore children. Who knows, maybe Ryan Gosling will be single again and he can mend Rachel’s broken heart! We can hope, can’t we?
