Top Celebrity Break-Ups 2010

Writer: Anne Jamaludin

As the year comes to an end, 2010 have witnessed yet another episode of devastating separations, divorces and breakup (not to mention the ones that make fans happy instead!) With a continuous string of love-lost news reported by the media one after another, we asked for our reader's vote to support which couple that they think should have stayed together forever till their dying days.

Ryan Reynolds & Scarlett Johansson

This Marvel power couple dated in 2007, announced their engagement in May 2008 and wedded in a private ceremony at British Columbia four months later. However on 14 December 2010, Reynolds and Johansson both released a joint statement announcing their separation and plans for divorce. The couple had no children out of their reunion. Reynolds is heading forward to the release of DC superhero, "Green Lantern" in 2011 and reprising his role as "Deadpool" in his very own movie in 2012. Johansson on the other hand, is anticipating the release of "Avengers" in 2012 where she will also reprise her Marvel counterpart, Natasha Romanov a.k.a Black Widow. It is really devastating. They could have given birth to gorgeous super babies!

Courteney Cox & David Arquette

The Friends' actress and her now former husband on the set of Wes Craven's first Scream movie. The couple got married on 12 June 1999 and together they had a daughter who they named Coco Riley Arquette in 2004. On October 2010, the pair separated but still maintains a close friendship. Cox moves on by focusing on her lead character in Season 2 of ABC's Cougar Town series as ironically, a divorced single mother who bounce back by dating younger men. Wonder if Cox will embrace her character in real life, considering Arquette was 6 years younger than she is. How much younger will Cox go? In the same month of the announced separation, Arquette admitted in an interview with Howard Stern that he had his one-time rebound with an aspiring actress named Jasmine Waltz. Their deal was purely physical, apparently. Their divorce did not deter the filming and production of "Scream 4" as they will reprise their respective roles in the franchise, due for release in April 2011.

Eva Longoria & Tony Parker
Probably one of the sweetest Hollywood and sports hook-up when they met in November 2004. The point-sized Desperate Housewives star announced that she was dating the San Antonio Spurs point guard in August 2005. They wedded after two years of courtship in Paris. Their marriage first had its ordeal when a French model, Alexandra Paressant claimed to have had an affair with Parker which (after a lawsuit from the couple) was proved to be misleading. However, in November 2007 the "Over Her Dead Body" actress filed for divorce after discovering that her husband had been having an affair with the wife of one of his Spurs teammate. The couple had no children out of their three years marriage.

Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens
The Disney's High School Musical sweethearts met on the sets of the TV movie in 2005 and got romantically involved two years later. Despite having the nude pictures scandal twice (2007 & 2009), Hudgens' reputation did not affect Efron's clean-cut image during their relationship. Only the pair decided to go their separate ways in mid December 2010 on a mutual basis. Reason: they both just grew out of it! Now, Efron is shooting romance comedy "The Lucky One" while Hudgens is expecting the release of "Sucker Punch" after finished filming "Journey To The Centre Of The Earth 2" alongside Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Their engagement was announced in February 2005 and they tied the knot in November of the same year. Together they had a son, Max Liron Bratman born in 2005. However, in October 2010, Aguilera filed for divorce from Bratman, seeking joint legal and physical custody of their son and specifying September 11, 2010 as the date of separation. Even after her divorce, Aguilera's luck has never run out as she received her own star at Hollywood's walk of Fame and enjoying the release of her feature debut musical, "Burlesque" alongside her idol, Cher in November 2010.

Sandra Bullock & Jesse James
The Oscar Award-Winning actress met the Monster Garage host when Bullock arranged for her ten-year-old godson to meet James as a Christmas present.

In March 2010, a scandal arose when a few women have gone public, claiming to have had with James during his marriage to Bullock. Despite James' effort to check himself into a rehab facility and issuing a public apology in the same month to Bullock, the "Miss Congeniality" actress filed for divorce the following month. The couple adopted a child together named Louis Bardo Bullock whom which Bullock continued to care for as a single parent.

The couple lived together in Los Angeles and England. They considered themselves married without an actual marriage. Theron said she has split from the Irish actor when she came back from a Mesican holiday in January 2010.

Marilyn Manson & Evan Rachel Wood
