Summer of Breakups: Kristen Stewart, Tom Cruise, & More (PHOTOS)

It’s supposed to be a season of flirting and flings, but lovin’ was in short supply this summer, with couples splitting from every corner of Hollywood. From Twipocalypse to the breakups that put Johnny Depp, Hilary Swank, and Henry Cavill back on the market, see the celebrities who ended up single.

Katy Perry & John Mayer

We could almost hear the collective sighs of relief from Katy Perry fans when Us Weekly reported last week that the pop star and John “Your Body Is a Wonderland” Mayer have gone their separate ways. The two had been spotted canoodling at parties around L.A. throughout the summer but it seems the relationship was just a summer fling. Best of luck to whoever’s next on John’s extensive hit list.

Hilary Swank & John Campisi

She ain’t his million-dollar baby anymore. After five years together, Oscar winner Hilary Swank and her agent/boyfriend John Campisi have called it quits, a rep confirmed to People last week. The two began dating in December 2007, shortly after her divorce from actor Chad Lowe in November of the same year.

Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson

With Breaking Dawn Part 2’s release looming on the horizon—and the promise of exceedingly awkward promotional tours—the Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders cheating scandal just won’t be dying down anytime soon. Ever since Stewart, 22, was caught kissing her married 42-year-old Snow White and the Huntsman director, the spotlight has remained on the actress and her now-estranged boyfriend of three years, Robert Pattinson. Regardless, the two will cozy up together onscreen in the upcoming conclusion to the Twilight saga.

Tom Cruise & Katie Holmes

The only breakup bigger than Twi-gate this summer, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’s divorce hit with the force of an atomic bomb. Why was she leaving now after five years? Who would Suri stay with? Was it because of Scientology? What is Scientology, anyway? Were they ever really in love? How big would her payout be? There was no shortage of questions surrounding the breakup of one of Hollywood’s most famous couples, but the divorce played out at lightning speed. It took only two weeks for the ex-couple to reach an agreement, which reportedly gave Katie a relatively meager payout: she received no part of Tom’s $250 million fortune and will be paid $400,000 a year in child support for the next 12 years, until Suri turns 18.

Johnny Depp & Vanessa Paradis

We were rooting for these two, but after 14 years and two kids together, Johnny Depp and French actress Vanessa Paradis officially announced their separation in June. Just two days before the announcement, Paradis sat down with French Elle and divulged some details about why, perhaps, she might be unhappy: “Sometimes you could be in an unhappy relationship; you are very much in love with someone, but it’s making you unhappy and you think things can change and you can work it out.”

Jenny McCarthy & Brian Urlacher

This year’s July/August Playboy cover girl, Jenny McCarthy had a six-month romance with Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher before announcing this summer: “Brian and I have decided to turn our romance into an amazing friendship. I will continue to be the biggest cheerleader for him. Go, Bears!”

John Edwards & Rielle Hunter

Four years, one destroyed marriage, and one baby girl later, Rielle Hunter finally decided that her affair with former Sen. John Edwards was just not worth it anymore. Hunter began the now-infamous affair with the former presidential candidate during his 2008 campaign for president, when he was still married to his wife of 31 years, Elizabeth Edwards, who was dying of cancer. Hunter broke the news of her breakup in June during an appearance on Good Morning America, on the same day her memoir, What Really Happened: John Edwards, Our Daughter & Me hit bookstore shelves.

Denise Richards & Richie Sambora

June also saw the demise of the couple formerly known as Denise Richards and Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. The pair dated from 2006 to 2007, after Richards famously went through an ugly divorce with Charlie Sheen and Sambora split from Heather Locklear. The two then rekindled the romance last November—but it wasn’t meant to be. “We aren’t dating, but as a lot of people have seen, I stay very friendly with my exes. All of them,” she said during an appearance on The Talk.

Kenny G & Lyndie Benson

Jazz saxophonist Kenny G filed for divorce this month from his wife of 20 years, Lyndie Benson-Gorelick, seven months after she originally filed for legal separation. The 56-year-old musician cited “irreconcilable differences” on the divorce documents and is seeking joint custody of the youngest of their two sons; the other is no longer a minor. Though Kenny G is worth $50 million, the two had a prenuptial agreement, according to the documents.

Debra Messing & Daniel Zelman

Smash star Debra Messing filed for divorce in June from her husband of 10 years, actor and TV producer Daniel Zelman. The pair first met while they were students at New York University in the ’90s and went on to date for eight years before tying the knot in September 2000. Documents listed the couple’s date of separation as Feb. 15, 2010. Messing hinted at trouble in paradise in a recent interview with Ladies’ Home Journal, saying: “I think the institute of marriage is a noble thing. I think the idea of a partner for life is incredibly romantic. But now we’re living to 100. A hundred years ago, people were dying at age 37. ’Til death do us part was a much different ideal.” Messing and Zelman are seeking joint custody of their 8-year-old son, Roman.

Danica McKellar & Mike Verta

The Wonder Years alum and math whiz extraordinaire Danica McKellar called it quits in June after three years of marriage to composer Mike Verta, with whom the actress has a 1-and-a-half-year-old son, Draco. The couple dated for eight years before finally tying the knot in a La Jolla, Calif., ceremony in 2009, but apparently it wasn’t meant to be.

Henry Cavill & Ellen Whitaker

When Henry Cavill, star of the upcoming Superman flick Man of Steel, proposed to show jumper Ellen Whitaker in February 2011, she was thrilled. “I couldn’t believe it when he asked me to marry him,” she later told the Belfast Telegraph that spring. “I thought we were there to celebrate his birthday. It was such a surprise and I am so happy.” Fast-forward to this August, however, and the couple have reportedly called off their engagement. “They both just agreed it wasn’t working,” a source told Us Weekly.

Stevie Wonder & Kai Millard Morris

Sixty-two-year-old music legend Stevie Wonder filed for divorce this month from his wife of 11 years, Kai Millard Morris, who is the mother of two of his children, 10-year-old Kailand and 7-year-old Mandla. The two met in 1999 at the club Nell in New York, were engaged within six months, and married in September 2001. For those wondering, Wonder signed the divorce papers using his legal name, Stevland Morris.

Fred Willard

Actor Fred Willard didn’t break up or get divorced this summer—he’s been married to his playwright wife, Mary, for 40 years now—but he definitely got no love. Willard was arrested last month for allegedly engaging in a “lewd act” inside an adult theater, delightfully named the Tiki Theater, in Hollywood, and was promptly fired from his gig as the host of the PBS show Market Warriors.
