Suddenly Solo Stars: Surprising Celebrity Splits (PHOTOS)

Wes Ferguson / July 16, 2011

News broke yesterday that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are planning to divorce, to the surprise of many. Sadness! 

The Latino power couple was the talk of the town seven years ago as their empires converged when they tied the knot. They have two children together; 3-year-old twins Max and Emme

Most observers never saw it coming, as the two work together frequently and are often seen at red carpet events arm in arm. On the surface everything seemed perfect, but these are professional performers after all. This isn’t the first time Hollywood has led us to believe something that just isn’t so.

Some of the most beloved couples have called it quits, such as Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey. The two had a very popular reality show that followed their supposed matrimonial bliss — but they eventually split. Britney Spears seemed head over heels for Kevin Federline, but their love was on a crash course with disaster. 

Celebuzz has collected some of the world’s favorite couples who have parted ways. Let’s remember the good times!
