  1. Jesse James and Sandra Bullock

    The most dramatic celebrity split of the year was that of actress Sandra Bullock and motorcycle-builder Jesse James. They wed in 2005, and in 2010, were in the process of adopting a son when it was revealed that James had had an affair with tattoo model Michelle "Bombshell" McGee. The couple divorced and Bullock went on to adopt the baby boy, Louis, on her own.

    Part of the uproar around the divorce came from the fact that Bullock had won the best actress Oscar, for her role in "The Blind Side," just weeks before the affair was announced. She attended the ceremony with James. (Alberto E. Rodriguez / Getty Images) Back to slideshow navigation

  4. Tony Parker and Eva Longoria

    Basketball player Tony Parker and "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria were perhaps one of Hollywood's most photographed couples. They wed in 2007, and she got two tattoos to commemorate the event -- their wedding date (7-7-07) in Roman numerals and Parker's jersey number (9). No word on whether she will have them removed now that Longoria has filed for divorce.

    The divorce may have come about due to reports that Parker had sent hundreds of text messages to the wife of a former teammate. (Pascal Le Segretain / Getty Images for IWC Schaffhause) Back to slideshow navigation
