2011 had more than its fair share, but the way 2012 is shaping up already, it could turn out to be an evenbigger year for celebrity splits...

X Factor mogul, and king of sarcasm, Simon Cowell has finally confirmed that he and make-up artist fiancé Mezhgan Hussainy are no longer an item.

The SyCo director told the Daily Mail, "It's not on, it's not off, it's somewhere in the middle."

"I don't know if I will ever get married, but I am happy." He said.

Ultimate bachelor Cowell has confirmed his relationship status after months of speculation surrounding the couple.
"It is quite a complicated relationship. We have had a break from each other, and we are still incredibly close." He added.
Cowell also said he felt a responsibility toward he ex-girlfriends financially, saying he didn't pay them off but does 'support' several. Well, what else is he going to do with his £200 million fortune!

My only surprise is that it took her 14 months to realise what a knobhead she'd married!

Who gives a toss?
Adultery, affairs, one night stands, visits to seedy clubs. That is show business.

Latest News.
Russell Brand files for divorce from Katy Perry.
I am now double depressed and overcome by grief that I don't think I will last the night.

MSN Get a grip. I take it that MSN means Microsoft News, and this is news?
Am I missing something here for I thought that news meant exactly that, news about current affairs, news about the world and what is going on around us, things that affect MOST people and even news about sporting events which I am sure will feature heavily when the Summer Olympics occur but news about celebs and wannabes which often amounts to gutter trash news???

I think MSN are the only ones 'surprised' by the splits of any of the people mentioned above.


So Jenkins and Jones are both broken hearted ?????

What a load of tosh ... do these people really think  the public believe a word they say ?


People who 'tweet' are as boring and inane as a human being can get.

Why do they  think others are interested in what they had for breakfast, when they have a dental appointment etc etc etc .

Tweeting is hugely responsible for the dumbing down of society.

God help us all.







I think MSN are the only ones  surprised by the splits of any of  the people mentioned above.

If they spent less time on their careers and more time witheach other things may have worked out. Or maybe they were not meant to be, all the same it is very sad to see such a lovley couple part x

Celebrities need us more than we will ever need any of them.

how are Katie Price's love splits shocking? she drops them if they dont get her in celebrity magazines every month and then she blames the tv cameras that she agreed to have in the first place.

Sorry, not at present.


However, my new year's resolution is to find out how we can actually get in touch with MSN,

and plead with them to

 a) STOP the spam bots

 b) Let us post on ALL news items not just the boring so called celebrity news !

 c) STOP telling me my posts contain hyperlink or are spam !!!

Fingers crossed Eye-rolling

no real surprise here for brand/perry...one having an overgrown ego with a LIMITED quickly becoming outdated comedy talent and into HINDI while the other is a californian candy pop girl who wanys to have fun and is a DEVOUT CHRISTIAN..what a recipe for disaster!...what DID surprise me was katherine jenkins announcing to ALL on twitter that BOTH her and gethin jones were 'HEARTBROKEN' over splitting...well if thats the case for ALL the world to read then WHY dont these soppy sad individuals get BACK TOGETHER and mend their BROKEN hearts!! Crying

Katy P is looking fine but HIS face shows an utter despair, like he's seriously fed up.
01/01/2012 12:17
What's really amazing is why Perry involved herself with this reptile in the first place. It couldn't be money,she has her own...Can't be his sparkling wit and conversation...he's got none.He obviously saw this marriage as a sexual season ticket which he won't be renewing next season.On top of this he speaks just like a big girl.
30/12/2011 14:18
Sensible to part if you find you are not compatible.Just as well they didnt get married as too many fools rush in then realise when its too late they are not right for each other.I wish them both good luck in finding their right mate in life.

I'm really glad that MSN allow us to comment on some important and interesting issues?
01/01/2012 12:46
anyone paying money to watch this pair need help, who is interested in them breaking up!!!!!!!
01/01/2012 12:32
i have no sympathy for katy perry for allowing herself to be `conned` into this  pretentious agreement by none other than the `Delboy` of modern times, and a possible trannie! i dont like the man one bit and can only say how on earth did this guy get celebrity status in the first place!! sometimes i think these actresses/singers are just searching for a normal guy in the the celeb...when they should actually try looking in the normal places like people in normal jobs living normal lives...we are the real people...hello!!!!
01/01/2012 21:15
What took Katy so long she must have had a mental block to have married a complete uncouth disgusting moron at least she came to her senses before she caught something off him.

I dont give a long tailed rodents rear for this story, but perhaps MSN could re-open comments on REAL issues in 2012.


Only the polyfilla of celeb drones are available for comment, not the REAL news that appears on the main pages.


It hardly seems worth typing comments on people whose public influence on most taxpayers lives is not worth a jot.
