Posted 4 years ago by Hollie_Woods
Some marriages can last forever... but in the celebrity world they are more likely to last for hours, weeks and at best a few years. It's hard to keep a relationship going when you are in the public eye 24/7. The pressures of stardom took their toll on a number of couples in 2011. Hollie Woods, WDW Entertainment Reporter, looks at the most note-able divorces this year.

  1. Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds

    When we heard the news that Johansson and Reynolds broke up, we were pretty unhappy. Their combined hotness make us drool. They seemed like the perfect, no-drama celebrity couple who didn't sell their wedding pics to tabloids and kept their relationship gossip-free.

    Even their positively sweet joint statement about the divorce made them seem like a golden couple: "We entered our relationship with love and it's with love and kindness we leave it."

  2. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz

    Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz

    Another Hollywood romance over thanks to busy careers. This time it was Wentz's career that spelled the downfall of his marriage to Simpson.

    Ashlee Simpson filed divorce papers to end her marriage to Pete Wentz this week in a move that caught even cynical gossip readers by surprise.

    The split was Simpson's call after constant arguments over Wentz’s music career.

    His commitment to touring with his band had been a sticking point between the two for some time and finally led to Ashley filing for divorce.

    It was simple. She wanted him to focus on being a Dad and he wanted to focus on being a rockstar!

  3. Olivia Wilde and Tao Ruspoli

    After eight years of marriage, Wilde's divorce to Italian Prince Tao Ruspoli was finalized in 2011 and she was back on the market.

    The duo eloped in 2003 when Wilde was 19. The split hasn't been easy for the "Tron" star. Fortunately, Wilde and her ex remain on good terms.

    Since her split from Ruspoli, Wilde has been romantically linked to Bradley Cooper, Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake and Ryan Reynolds.

  4. Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman

    After a mandatory six-month waiting period, Aguilera and Bratman's divorce was made official in 2011.

    After separating in September 2010, Aguilera in October. The couple shares a 3-year-old son, Max.

    They always seemed happy, but just like that, Aguilera and Bratman are through. The divorce is finalized. Her downward spiral, however? Well ...

    In the six months since splitting with Bratman, Aguilera has been involved in a number of controversies - we think Bratman really grounded her and without his calming influence she is making her way off the rails.

  5. Camille Donatucci Grammer and Kelsey Grammer

    Frasier star Grammer, 55, married his third wife, Camille Donatacci, back in 1997 - and thirteen years later, the romance is over.

    It was reported July 1 that the 41-year-old former Playboy model filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable" differences.

    The couple have an 8-year-old daughter Mason and 5-year-old son Jude, and in her divorce petition Donatacci is seeking joint custody.

    The Grammer - Donatucci divorce has been quite a dirty one but ended quickly after Grammer went to court to get it rushed so he could marry his next in line: Kayte Walsh.

  6. Jaime Pressly and Simran Singh

    In 2011 Pressly ended her year-long marriage to entertainment lawyer Simran Singh.

    According to the documents filed in L.A. Superior Court, Pressly, who wed Singh in September 2009, cited irreconcilable differences.

    What are irreconcilable differences anyway?

  7. Charlie Sheen and Brooke Allen

    Charlie Sheen and Brooke Allen

    Sheen and Mueller's divorce was rocky and controversial with both suffering drug overdoses, custody battles and having their parenting skills being called into question.

    As for money and property ... Mueller gets $55,000 a month in child support. She also got a lump sum of $757,698.70 and $1 million for her share of the family home, which Sheen got to keep.

    The divorce may be final, but there's a good chance the battle between these two will rage on.

  8. Patricia Arquette and Thomas Jane

    It's safe to say Patricia Arquette is no longer "hung up" on ex-hubby Thomas Jane.

    After attempting to reconcile following the Medium star's divorce filing in 2009, the couple has officially called it quits.

    In spite of their many make ups and break ups, however, Arquette and the "Hung" star aren't ending their marriage on a bad note.

    When asked last year how they were doing in the wake of the breakup, Arquette said "We're both really good. I don't think people would even imagine that it could be so friendly and not weird."

    The ex-couple, who tied the knot in May 2006, has an eight-year-old daughter together, Harlow Olivia Calliope.

    This was the second marriage for Jane, as well as Arquette, who was previously married to Nicolas Cage.

    Elizabeth, 46, announced in December that she had split from her husband, after pictures emerged of her kissing cricketer Shane Warne in a hotel in London.

    Following the pictures' publication, both Hurley and Warne hastily issued statements revealing that their respective marriages had been over for some time.
