2010 was a big divorce year. Some of them, we saw it coming but some of them take us by surprise. Here are the most shocking breakups of 2010.
#1 Courteney Cox and David Arquette:
Courteney Cox and David Arquette sort of shocked the world with the announcement of their split. The two had been married for 11 years and have a daughter together. It's still unknown whether the two are headed for divorce or not. David is having a great time hooking up with a variety of women while Courteney is keeping things more low key.
I'm wondering if Jennifer Aniston was aware of this!
#2 Eva Longoria and Tony Parker:
Three years after a storybook wedding in a European castle, Eva Longoria filed for divorce from basketball star Tony Parker. When the media got their breakup, reporting that Longoria had filed in L.A. we just can’t believe this was happening! They were always holding hands, laughing and giving interviews about how much they loved one another. Eva seemed so in love with Tony too—even getting the number “9” tattooed on the back of her neck and his initials on a mystery spot. Well, none of us saw this coming! The infidelity looks to be the cause it the split.
#3 Christina Aguilera and Jordan Bratman:
In October, just a month shy of her fifth wedding anniversary, the bomb dropped that these two were splitting, most believed that it was just some tricky PR to boost attention for Christina’s upcoming movie, ‘Burlesque’. Christina filed for divorce from her husband Jordan Bratman. They share a child together, Max.
#4 Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy:
Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy started dating publicly in June of 2006. They had initially dated secretly (and had denied their affair publicly on numerous occasions) before confirming the relationship via a publicist. This couple did the unusual and took to Twitter in April to announce their breakup news in separate tweets. Carrey confirmed breakup saying that he was grateful for their time together and wished her the best. McCarthy responded saying that she was grateful for her years with Carrey and that he will always be "a leading man in her heart. After 5 years of dating, the love story of this funny couple is ended.
#5 Sandra Bullock and Jesse James:
Not even four months after Jesse James' affairs with Michelle "Bombshell" McGee and other assorted hoes became exposed; the actress' divorce from him is final. This news broke less than two weeks after Sandra nabbed the Best Actress Oscar for her role in The Blind Side. Bullock filed for divorce back on April 23, saying her marriage to James "has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities." Later she caused a media stir for an entirely different reason: revealing she'd secretly adopted a son.
I can’t believe how such ugly man can cheat on this Sweetheart woman!
#6 Elin Nordigren and Tiger Woods:
The split between Elin Nordigren and Tiger Woods came as little surprise, but after months of speculation, their marriage was officially over. Tiger infidelities were the cause of the divorce. The revelations that the world's most famous athlete had been cheating on her wife through multiple affairs shocked the world. The sordid sex scandal cost Woods $750 million that he has to pay to Elin, one of the higher divorce settlement ever. Of course, it cost him three major corporate sponsors — Accenture, AT&T and Gatorade — worth millions of dollars, and he lost his image as the gold standard in sports endorsements. After the scandal became public, Woods spent two months in therapy and put his career on hold. The couple is the parents of two children.
