Hollywood relationships rarely go the distance, so it’s not too shocking when we hear of a famous duo breaking up. We’d all prefer them to live happily ever after, but the pressures of the entertainment business seem to take their toll. Here is a roundup of some of the not-so-surprising celebrity splits of 2014, or should we say “conscious uncouplings”.
1. Robin Thicke and Paula Patton
After knowing each other for 21 years (they met at age 14!), being married for nine and having one son, celebrity supercouple Robin Thicke and Paula Patton separated in February 2014. He spent the bulk of this year trying to woo her back, recording an awkward album entitled Paula with cringe-worthy songs like Get Her Back. Seems like the ditties didn’t work, as Paula officially filed for divorce in October 2014, squashing any hope for a reconciliation. Rumor has it that the Blurred Lines singer’s infidelities were behind the spit.
