2012 Year in Review: The 20 Biggest Weddings, Breakups and Makeups

Just like the rest of the world, love makes the Hollywood go round.

This year had no shortage of romance among the stars. From Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel saying “I do” under the stars in Southern Italy, to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively secretly getting hitched on a sprawling Southern plantation, many buzzed-about celebrity couples found their happily-ever-after in 2012.

Even some of the industry’s most beloved golden girls turned bridal. Natalie Portman tied the knot with her Benjamin Millepied in a traditional Jewish ceremony in Big Sur, Calif., where Anne Hathaway also walked down the aisle at sunset to wed Adam Shulman.

Drew Barrymore vowed for forever with Will Kopleman at her Montecito, Calif. estate, while Carey Mulligan took the plunge with Mumford & Sons musician Marcus Mumford in the countryside of Somerset, England.

But wedded bliss didn’t bless everyone, with many longtime lovers calling it quits in 2012. After almost seven years of marriage, Heidi Klum and Seal announced their separation in January before officially filing for divorce three months later.

Parting ways after five wedded years, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes — long labeled Tomkat — reached a surprisingly speedy divorce settlement after just 11 days in July, with the actress receiving primary custody of the couple’s six-year-old daughter, Suri.

But not all of Hollywood’s bitter breakups stuck. Back in July, Kristen Stewart was infamously snapped smooching her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, seemingly ruining her three-year relationship with Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. But Twihard broken hearts were soon on the mend, as Stewart and Pattinson were spotted canoodling in Los Angeles, Calif., in October.

Now, as the countdown begins to 2013, look back at this year’s biggest weddings, breakups and makeups.

Which wedding took the cake? What split was most shocking? And which makeups were meant to be? Share your thoughts in comments below.

Seal Makes Offer on $6M Bachelor Pad (PHOTOS)

It looks like ex-wife Heidi Klum isn’t the only thing Seal is officially moving on from.

The 49-year-old singer recently made a formal offer to purchase new green digs in Brentwood, Calif. — one of Los Angeles’ celeb-friendly neighborhoods. The contemporary style home encompasses 5,500 square feet within a 6,115 triangular shaped lot, as reported by TMZ.

And the private pad doesn’t come cheap.

The three-level home — consisting of four bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, an open-concept living and dining room, two modern kitchens with Euro appliances, a den, office, media area, and basement that holds a fitness room — totals up to a whopping $6 million.

Plus, there is no sneaking into this pad. Gates and walls surround the house, keeping it private, but limiting the backyard space. However, there are a few tree-top view terraces to enjoy the fresh air, according to RealEstalker.

Klum and Seal sold their former Beverly Hills estate in June 2011, and Klum is currently residing at a 12,300 square foot mock-Med mansion that the duo bought back in late 2010.

Heidi Klum Confirms Romance With Bodyguard Beau: ‘He’s a Great Man’ (VIDEO)

After her split from Seal, Heidi Klum has confirmed that she is indeed dating her bodyguard Martin Kristen.

“I’ve know him for four years,” the supermodel told Katie Couric on the set of her talk show Wednesday.  “He’s cared for our entire family, mostly for our four children. Helped us tremendously. I trust him. I trust him with my children’s life. He’s a great man. And we just got to know each other from a completely different side.”

Klum, 39, also talked about where her relationship with her soon to be ex-husband stands as well as her thoughts on his recent comment that she was “fornicating with the help.”

“I don’t know if we’re the greatest friends right now, especially the things that he said,” Klum said.

“I just saw him on Sunday. We were talking. … It’s a work in progress. You have to take it one day at a time. It’s hard, ya know, especially when you are in the public eye too.”

 

As for Seal’s comments that she may have been cheating on him with her current flame, the Project Runway star said, “Yeah, he has a very unique choice of words. I’m used to them. I don’t know. I obviously… I don’t love that.”

“Obviously it’s not true. I’ve never looked at another man when I was with him. It’s hard when you think that he thinks that. He was hurt. He’s moved on…and so have I.”

The made one other thing clear:  what matters most is her four children, Leni, 8, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2.

“I’m trying to think of my kids right now … I’m trying to protect them from this right now,” she said. “They’re very young.”
