TomKat Divorce Caught Us By Surprise! + 8 More Shocking Celeb Divorces (Photos)

Surprising celebrity divorces via babble.comIt is all over the media right now and on many peoples minds — the shocking divorce of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes sure does have people talking! I mean, apparently even Tom was surprised that his wife wanted out and filed papers. He was still gushing about her and their marriage not that long ago and they really seemed happy.

They are not the only celeb couple that rocked media when they announced their split — there have been several others. From couples that have been friends forever before marriage to others who have been very lovey-dovey open it seems like there is little assurance that what we see and hear about their marriages, there really is more than meets the eye.

Click through to see 8 other celebs divorces we were just as shocked over when they were revealed:

    The pair have been long time friends and stayed close even when they were married to others. When they got married in 2004, I really thought this would work since they were good friends before. They announced their split in 2011 after 7 years of marriage.

    Ashlee married Pete in 2008 and have an adorable son together. Even though they had a whirlwind relationship, I was surprised when they announced their split in 2011.

    An odd pair to begin with, but they really seemed to be making it work. Though they don't have any children together, Ashton quickly settled into the role of step-father to Demi's children. When they announced their split in 2011 after 6 years of marriage, people were shocked.
  • Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver 6 of 8

    When celebs have been married for more than 7 years we tend to assume it's forever then. When this couple announced their marriage was no longer after 25 years of marriage, it was a huge surprise.
  • Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe 7 of 8

    Another longer-term marriage that ended after 14 years it was somewhat surprising. I am not sure what went wrong, but it seems that once someone starts gaining in popularity, their marriage goes down.
