7 Recent Celebrity Breakups ...

By Lyndsie

Have you ever wondered why it is that society as a whole – including you, me, her, and him – are so obsessed with the love lives of celebrities? Whether you love them or hate them, you always want to know what's up with those big name stars. I think it's because it proves that celebrities really do have to go through some of the same hardships. They might not have to worry about paying their bills on time, affording luxury items, putting their children through school, and things like that, but they do go through the same kind of pains we do, especially when it comes to love. If you need some prove, check out the following recent celebrity breakups!

1 Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver

This is one recent celebrity breakup that shocked a lot of people, if only because the marriage between the ex-governator and Shriver seemed so stable. Then again, allegations of Arnold's wandering eye, Roman hands, and Russian fingers have plagued the couple forever – right up until he got elected, it seems like. The news that he misused state funds to do things for the mistress is even worse. Maria's handling things admirably well thus far, though. Might be something in that Kennedy bloodline.

2 Scarlett Johansson and Sean Penn

I didn't understand this relationship from the get-go. I mean, I think Sean Penn's an excellent actor, but he's got a temper, plus, well, she's Scarlett Johansson. Her divorce from Ryan Reynolds undoubtedly hit her hard, but her whirlwind romance with Penn was still a little weird. A lot weird. And kind of gross, if some of the rumors are true. Speaking of rumors, there are already tales spreading that the two are getting back together.

3 Cameron Diaz and Alex Rodriguez

The recent celebrity breakup between these two wasn't really a surprise. I mean, A-Rod isn't exactly known for his long term relationships, you know? I don't know what it is about the guy, but it's like he thinks he's got something to prove, running around with all these A-listers. I feel bad for Cameron, though. I love her, and I still kind of wish she'd get back together with Justin Timberlake. They were cute together.

4 Ryan Phillippe and Amanda Seyfried

This breakup makes me sad. I never thought I'd want to see Ryan Phillippe (who's secretly MY boyfriend, actually) seriously be with anyone except Reese Witherspoon, but I love Amanda Seyfried even more, and I thought they looked great together. They would have made the most ridiculously pretty babies. Still, their relationship has been so hush-hush and on-again, off-again, who knows what the future holds?

5 Adrianne Curry and Christopher Knight

I've been waiting for this split pretty much since the two of them met on The Surreal Life. This pairing was one of the oddest things I've ever seen, and I never thought they went well together. I'm not the hugest fan of either “celebrity,” but Adrianne is a wild, no-hold's-barred, blunt, crazy, speak-her-mind kind of girl – and while their relationship was being chronicled on VH1, it always seemed like Christopher was trying to censor that. Apparently she finally decided the same thing. You ought to read the publicists' reasons for the split; they say pretty much everything.

6 Lady Gaga and Luc Carl

This recent celebrity breakup actually surprised me, not so much because of the breakup itself, but rather because it came out at all. Lady Gaga is out there and ostentatious about most everything, but you don't hear a lot about her love life in the tabloids. I was just surprised to hear anything about her personal life. Knowing her, she'll turn the heartbreak into a wildly popular new song.

7 Leonardo DiCaprio and Bar Refaeli

I don't think anyone was really surprised by this. These two have broken up so much that I've started to wonder if their relationship follows the cycles of the moon or something. Do you know what I really wish? I wish Leo would just get with Kate Winslet. I wonder if the two have ever actually thought of being together?

There have probably been even more recent celebrity breakups. It's hard to believe how quickly some stars go through relationships, but in a way, it's easy to understand. After all, costars in romantic movies are with each other day in and day out, filming incredibly intense and passionate scenes. I used to similarly develop crushes with the costars of school plays or musicals. Who were you most glad – and most sad – to see breakup?
