Some of these couples left fans totally shocked when they called time on their relationships -- and some not so much. Surprising or not, 2015 was definitely the year of the celebrity break-up! We take a look:

Charlize Theron and Sean Penn

Let’s face it with two such strong personalities was it ever going to last between these two Oscar winners? Sean (55) clearly thought so, even popping the question however their nearly two-year romance came to an abrupt end in May when Charlize (40) broke things off, reportedly because she couldn’t handle Sean’s “intense” nature anymore.

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green

After five years of marriage and two kids, the 29-year-old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hottie called time out on her 11-year relationship with her actor hubby. Apparently the main problem was Brian’s failing career and Megan’s soaring one.  Brian (42) even went on to ask for spousal support. Eish.

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez

The actor pair, both 49, called it quits in October after two years of marriage and one child, citing the usual “irreconcilable differences”. However according to insiders the Frenchman felt emasculated by his Oscar-winning wife’s success and his violent temper was reportedly also a problem.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner

After 10 years of marriage and three kids, the couple, both 43, split in June after Ben’s affair with the family nanny, Christine Ouzounian (28), was uncovered. Despite this, both are committed to “co-parenting their children and to go forward with love and friendship for one another”.

Kate Beckinsale and Len Wiseman

The director and his muse (the met on the set of Underworld in 2003 when Len directed the British-born actress) called time out on their 11 year marriage, having reportedly “grown apart”. However they are said to be still on friendly terms despite Len (42) being seen in the company of a 20-something model.

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale

Like Jennifer Garner, Gwen saw her marriage crumbling thanks to her husband, Gavin Rossdale’s two-year affair with the nanny which came to light. In fact the Bush frontman’s womanising ways was a major problem throughout their 13-year-marriage. Gwen (46) got her revenge though, striking up a red-hot romance with fellow Voice judge, Blake Shelton.

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger

The pop star and the Nickelback frontman announced the end of their two-year marriage in September in a touching message on Instagram where they said they “will forever be the best of friends”. Avril’s battle with Lyme disease was said to have played a part in the split.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick

In June the reality star gave her partner of nine years the boot after photos emerged of him getting cosy with a rumoured ex-girlfriend in Monte Carlo. Since then the party-loving father-of-three has been trying to clean up his act with stints in rehab while Kourtney is enjoying the single life.

Kate Moss and Jamie Hince

Their shock split this year after four years of marriage was blamed on the supermodel’s partying lifestyle and Jamie’s eye for the ladies. In August the Kills’ rocker was snapped cosying up to Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Stam outside a West Hollywood bar while on tour with his band. Meanwhile Kate (41) is said to be dating 28-year-old photographer, Count Nikolai Von Bismarck.

Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards

News the former One Direction star had called off their engagement, reportedly by text, broke earlier this month. PHOTO: Cover The former One Direction star reportedly called off their engagement by text. PHOTO: Cover
Fans couldn’t believe it when the former One Directioner suddenly ended his engagement to longtime love, Little Mix singer in May, reportedly via text message. The 22-year-old British heartthrob has since been linked to American model, Gigi Hadid (20).

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert

The country couple’s four year marriage ended on a bitter note in August with both parties accused of straying. Blake (31) has since started seeing fellow Voice judge, Gwen Stefani, newly single herself.

Kaley Cuoco and Ryan Sweeting

After just 21 months of marriage, the Big Bang Theory actress ended her marriage to the hunky tennis player, reportedly due to his painkiller addiction. “Kaley supported him but she said he couldn't make the commitment to get sober,” a friend dished.
