10 celebrity break-ups that we’re still struggling to get over

It's been a bad year for celebrity splits (Ben and Jen, Zayn and Perrie, Gwen and Gavin), and we're just not sure if we can take the strain of another one.

Sometimes when a celeb couple breaks up, the heartbreak is as real for us as it is for them. Honestly.

Here are a few that really tore us apart…

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

TomKat were a picture-perfect couple but if we're honest, the relationship seemed cursed from the start. Tom's affiliation with Scientology led to some seriously troubling reports, including creepy brain-washing techniques used on their daughter, Suri. Katie left Tom in 2012, taking Suri with her. 


Helena Bonham-Carter and Tim Burton

We loved this couple because they were so weirdly wonderful and seemingly perfect for each other. They first got together in 2001, and produced numerous movies and projects over the years. In 2014 the world was shocked to find out they had split, but the two have remained friends ever since.


Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick

Sometimes Kourtney and Scott were the most entertaining part of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but in reality we probably saw more than we needed. When they were good, they were damn good. But when they were bad, it seemed dreadful. They went through a really long and rough break up but we reckon it's for the best.


Katy Perry and Russell Brand

Even though their marriage only lasted a year before Russell called things off with a single phone call, we were still devo to hear this couple were done for good.


Seal and Heidi Klum

This break-up caught even Hollywood's smartest insiders by surprise. Heidi and Seal were famous for their public displays of affection and had three gorgeous children together. That wasn't enough to keep them together however, as they filed for divorce in 2012. 


Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake

This relationship was every teen girl's fantasy. They even wore matching outfits! But then Brit-Brit ended up doing the dirt on JT and broke not only his, but the hearts of the whole world. He totally got her back though in the most epic way when he wrote Cry Me A River.


Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield

The Amazing Spider-Man co-stars were our ultimate #relationshipgoal: They photobombed fans Instagrams, trolled the paparazzi for charity and were just totally cute whenever they were seen in public together. But after Emma made a series of red carpet appearances alone, our worst fears came true. Sources say Emma split with Andrew after he had supposedly been in a dark place for months while filming a new movie.


Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

Miley and Liam were the perfect couple both on and off screen, so we were so sad to see them part ways. Miley definitely went a bit cray-cray afterwards (well she still is a bit cray) and that is reportedly the reason why they split. Judging by her Wrecking Ball lyrics, we doubt there will be a reunion either.


Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

They captured our hearts as star-crossed lovers in Twilight – but even non Twi-hards were stunned when Kristen cheated on Rob and the pair broke up. While the couple seemed to work things out for the final Twilight film's premiere, the two split a few months later. R-Patz is now set to marry F.K.A. Twigs, while Kristen is in a relationship with her former PA Alicia Cargile.


Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens

Every teenager in the world loved Zac and Vanessa together – they were perfect in High School Musical and in real life. But after three years, their schedules turned crazy busy, and they just couldn't make things work out. Even though Vanessa seems totally loved-up with her new beau, Austin Butler, seeing pictures of the old pair makes us go awww
