The celebrity couples who broke up in 2014

While some celebs were celebrating their love this year, others haven’t been quite as lucky. We’ve taken a look through this year’s biggest celeb splits with some of them getting nasty and quite frankly embarrassing.

Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy

One of the less scandalous splits of the year, Kate and Matt announced that they had called time on their engagement quite some time ago. No one knew because they had still been spotted at events together, even spent Thanksgiving together. There’s no bad blood between these two stars who will continue to be committed co-parents to 3-year-old Bingham. Muse singer Matt took to Twitter these past few days to thank people for being understanding and admitted that the split is ‘for the best’.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton

Now, Robin and Paula’s break-up was a little more juicy, Paula announced the separation in Februay, but it took Robin till July to finally accept it, despite the fact that Paula had moved out of their home. Thicke spent months after the separation making public apologies at the Billboard Music Awards and the BET Awards hoping to win Paula back. The pair were together for 20 years and married for nine and have one child together. There were rumours of cheating surrounding the spilt, but Robin said that there was numerous reasons why they broke-up.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

The incredibly private couple this year announced, via Gwyneth’s lifestyle site Goop, that they had decided to consciously uncouple – basically break-up. After 10 years of marriage the pair decided to amicably split, and admitted that they had worked on their relationship for a year before calling it quits. Since the split there has been plenty of rumours of them getting back together, they often spend time together. But all that looked to change when it came out that Chris was dating Jennifer Lawrence; apparently this too has ended now.

Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie

The former Disney star was married to the former hockey player for three years when they decided to split, but like Gwyneth and Chris they’ve remained a permanent fixture in each other’s lives because of their 2-year-old boy, Luca. The pair admits that reconciliation could be on the cards, and that’s why they’ve never filed for divorce.

Katy Perry and John Mayer

We can’t exactly remember how many times these two have broken-up and then got back together, but back in March they called it quits for good with alleged cheating rumours surrounding ladies’ man John.

Naya Rivera and Big Sean

There relationship was quite the whirlwind, they got engaged six months after dating only to split a few months later. Sean is said to be the one who called time on the relationship because of Naya’s jealousy and fits of rage – apparently she broke a lamp during one of them. Then just days after the split, Naya took to Twitter to accuse Sean of stealing a watch from her home and trying to sell it. Drama, drama, drama.

Freida Pinto and Dev Patel

After six years together Frieda and Dev put an end to their relationship with a source saying that Freida is happy and letting friends set her up, we surprised this lasted as long as it did really.

Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks

After three years of dating, Jason and Jordin parted ways in Spetember. Again, there was no bad blood and it was a mutual decision to part ways.

Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult

The pair cited ‘different schedules’ as the reason for their split in August after two years of dating.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

The pair were married in 2008 after just weeks of dating, they went on to have twins, but are now living separate lives in different homes.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Toni Garn

These two have never walked the red carpet together, but after a year of dating have reportedly called it quits. There was rumours circulating after Leo was spotted leaving a nightclub with 20 women. Looks as though a leopard never changes his spots.
