Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes: The Rock Of Ages star and actress Katie Holmes were married for five years until Katie filed divorce papers anonymously on June 30, 2012 in New York citing 'irreconcilable differences'. Since then Hollywood's most high profile couple have been fighting a bitter divorce battle.

The couple had quite a fairy tale romance. It was way back in 2005, that Cruise expressed his love for Katie in Oprah Winfrey's show by jumping up and down on the couch in excitement over his newfound love. Then he proposed to her at the top of Eiffel Tower in Paris.

In 2006, Katie gave birth to their first child Suri and the same year they got married at the15th-century Odescalchi Castle in Bracciano, Italy.

But Katie Holmes admitted that life with the actor made her feel like a 'robot'. By all accounts, Tom didn't see it coming.

Tom Cruise has reportedly counter filed for divorce and has hired the same lawyer that he used during his split with second wife Nicole Kidman. He is all set for a bitter custody battle over Suri Cruise.

Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger: The JLo – Mark Anthony shocker comes as the dust is settling down on another celebrity breakup which made the world gasp.

Once dubbed an unlikely couple, no one could imagine that in private, after 25 years and 4 children together; the Shriver- Schwarzenegger marriage was a sham. The marriage finally unraveled following revelations of an affair between Arnold and the couple's long-time housekeeper, Mildred “Patty” Beana. The actor and former California Governor admitted to fathering a child with Beana.

While the world was still coming up for air, this terse statement from the couple said it all, or rather very little: ‘We are not together anymore. It's very difficult and very personal and we hope everyone can respect our privacy.'

The couple apparently fell out after Chelsy told Harry she was homesick and planned to move back to Africa to be closer to her family. Not that it's new for this often-faltering couple, but Chelsy firmly at Harry's side in April and a breakup in a little over a month, is surprising, even for them.
