2013's biggest celebrity breakups included at least two Kardashians (Khloe and momager Kris Jenner), several teen heartthrobs (Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, again, and Taylor Swift and Harry Styles), at least one super wild child and her hot Hollywood hunk (Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth) and of course, George Clooney, who split from Stacy Keibler after two years (which seems to be his expiration date for relationships).
Who had the most talked about, headline-grabbing celebrity break ups and celebrity divorces of 2014? That remains to be seen, but rest assured, all of the biggest and worst splits are listed here, from Chris Rock and his longtime wife, to Chris Martin and that Goopy Gwyneth Paltrow. These celebs may be world famous, but all the money in the world can't buy true love, after all.
Chris Rock and Malaak Compton-Rock
After nearly 20 years of marriage, Chris Rick and Malaak Compton-Rock are calling it quits. The couple, who have battled rumors of relationship issues in the past, have two children together, Lola Simone, 12, and Zahra Savannah, 10. They got married in 1996.
Malaak released a statement saying, "after much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways. Being fortunate enough to lead a life of service by working with those most vulnerable makes me well aware of life's blessings, even when faced with difficulties. While recognizing that this is a significant change, my children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority. It is in this spirit that I sincerely ask that their privacy and the privacy of our family be respected during this transition in our lives."
