Last week Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner rocked the celeb world when they announced that they were to split after 10 years of marriage. The Hollywood couple have been married since 2005 and have three children together. I don’t think anyone saw this break-up coming but it’s not the first. In this blogpost Luxe Models lists the top 5 most shocking celebrity divorces.

Russell Brand and Katy Perry

In fifth place it’s Brand and Perry. Short and sweet (or not as sweet as we all thought) is the best way to describe this relationship. The pair, who first met on the set of ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’, married late in 2010. The two became engaged on New Year’s Eve in 2009 during a holiday in India and married there 9 months later. Whilst everything appeared lovey-dovey through the eyes of social media, the world was shocked at Brand’s choice to file for divorce a mere 14 months later.

Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren

In 2009 Tiger Woods had everything. He was vastly becoming the greatest golfer of all time, millions in the bank, 9 kids and a stunning wife. But in one of the most well-documented acts of unfaithfulness ever, all of that came crumbling down. Later that year the media uncovered Tiger’s secrets. After his first bout of adultery was reported, all of his mistresses started coming forward. Despite Woods’ best efforts, the Swedish model called time on the marriage and they separated in August 2010.

Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore

Their romance and subsequent marriage was known as the ultimate “cougar” success story. Demi was a whole 15 years older than Ashton when the couple got married ten years ago. They were the most loved-up couple in showbiz at one point and were constantly pictured looking smitten in one another’s presence. Following allegations that Kutcher had cheated on his wife in San Diego on his sixth wedding anniversary the pair separated in 2012, before finalising the divorce in November 2013.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

Many were sceptical of this relationship from the outset, but Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise saw it through a fairy-tale castle wedding in Italy and the birth of their daughter Suri in 2006. Their romance was heavily followed by media all over the world but appeared to be getting stronger and stronger. Out of nowhere Katie filed for a divorce in June 2012, citing her worry about the influence of Scientology on their daughter.

Brad Pitt and Jennifer Anniston

It has been nearly 10 years since their split but many of us are still saddened by the breakup of Brad and Jen. The couple began dating in 1998 and were darlings of the media from the very start. They married in 2000 and seemed to be a rare Hollywood marriage success story, until Aniston filed for divorce in 2005. They have both moved on to happy and healthy relationships since.
