The world may be reeling in from the shock of Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr‘s separation, but these divorces aren’t rare in Tinseltown. The others are just as shocking…
The year 2012’s just a few days old and yet we’ve already witnessed a celebrity breakup. Pop singer Katy Perry and British comedian Russell Brand has recently announced that they are separating and filing for divorce after just barely four months of marriage.
Perry and Brand were a very high profile couple and their engagement was played up a lot in the media. Their respective bachelor and bachelorette parties were also extensively reported because of their high profile guests (especially with Perry being best friends with Rihanna).

Even comedian Robin Williams will find little to laugh about the recent turn of events. Marsha Garces Williams recently filed for divorce because of “irreconcilable differnces.” They had been married for 19 years. They have two kids: Zelda, 18, and son Cody, 16.
This is Williams’ second divorce.
The separation also ends their working relationship; Marsha had been the producer of several of his films, including Jakob the Liar, Patch Adams, and Mrs. Doubtfire and worked as his “assistant” on films like Dead Poets Society. Prior to that, she was his nanny.
In a brutally frank assessment of Heather Mills’ case — and character — the judge declared that she was inconsistent, and to some extent, conniving.
He revealed that all her declarations of giving 90% of her income to charity were untrue in fact, all of her income tax returns show none ever went to a good cause), and that her request for “housekeeping expenses” included ridiculous allowances for helicopter rides and horse grooming.
Paul McCartney, on the other hand, revealed himself to be a simple man, who despite his fortune, lived on a modest property. He also admitted that he was still “grieving” for his wife, Linda, who passed away from cancer.
When rumors that Pink’s marriage was on the rocks first circulated, the pop star dismissed it as “trash talk.” But her publicist finally admitted that divorce was in sight.
Pink and her reality star hubby Carey Hart have separated. “This decision was made by best friends with a huge amount of love and respect for one another,” says the publicist, “While the marriage is over, their friendship has never been stronger.”
In what’s bound to become one of the ugliest celebrity breakups in history, Paul McCartney and Heather Mills enter their second week of their divorce hearings.
The two are fighting over the settlement and custody over their daughter, Beatrice. Heather Mills wants $100 million. (How ironic that Paul used to say that Heather didn’t marry him for money.)
The gold digger — oh, we mean Heather — has tapped Fiona Shackleton, who was Prince Charles’ lawyer when he divorced the late Princess Diana.

Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds are ending their marriage — just two weeks after the Bora Bora ceremony and triple-X rated wedding kiss.
But the wedding wasn’t even over when Eddie started yelling at his new bride in front of the guests.
They’ve said they’re not considering having the symbolic Bora Bora ceremony legalized. “It was representative of our deep love, friendship and respect that we have for one another on a spiritual level, we have decided to remain friends.â€
In other words, Eddie, she’s kicking you out of her life.
Since the couple’s nuptials took place in a foreign country, the wedding was purely ceremonial â€“ not legal. Murphy, 46, and Edmonds, 40, originally said they planned to have a legal ceremony in the United States, but that is now off.
