Our inner child is so confused right now. Back in ’95, Seal‘s tune “Kiss From A Rose” seemed to be everywhere, and (seeing as how we were 8 at the time) Power Rangers also factored heavily in our thoughts. So in a way it makes sense that these two monuments to our 90s childhood have hooked up!
Love is a battlefield, and 2012 was not immune the heart’s harsh ways. Celebrity relationships had a tough go at things this year and saw a record number of sad splits (Amy Poehler and Will Arnett), shocking divorces (Heidi Klum and Seal) and close-call almost breakups (Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson). But 2012 also saw a few reconciliations (Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez), giving us hope for 2013. Browse through our gallery of the 20 biggest breakups of 2012 and tell us which split was the most devastating to watch.

It’s safe to say the best part of Halloween is checking out everyone’s costumes, especially celebrities — they’ve got mountains of money, they dress up for a living, they should really be the best at this, right? Unfortunately, some celebs are blessed with both an overabundance of creativity and a lack of good decision-making skills, and there’s a fine line between really great and successful costumes and weird, played out and awful ones. Between Aaron Carter‘s pimp suit (played out and weird for a 14-year-old) and Perez Hilton‘s interpretation of Lady Gaga (weird and awful) there’s no shortage of odd getups. Here are 20 that probably should have never, ever happened.

We’re sure there’s a sequel to The Bodyguard in here somewhere. Model and former Victoria’s Secret Angel Heidi Klum admitted today on Katie that she is in fact hooking up with her bodyguard Martin Kristen. OK, technically she said that they were “seeing” each other, but potato po-tah-to right? Whatever the case, it’s still very early days for the couple. “I don’t know if I can call it [a relationship],” she told host Katie Couric. “It just started. I don’t know.”
This news is probably is sending shock-waves of rage through her ex-husband Seal. As the divorce between the couple/costume enthusiasts heats up, Seal has been making claims that Heidi cheated on him with this same bodyguard during their marriage. He even told TMZ that he wishes that she’d “waited until we separated before deciding to fornicate with the help.” That’s harsh! He later apologized for the comment, but he’s still obviously not happy with the whole thing. “He’s upset,” a friend of the couple told People. “What really bothers Seal was this guy was a dear friend. They called each other ‘brother.’ He feels betrayed.”
But Heidi denies these accusations, saying that she “never looked at another man” over the course of their seven year marriage. But lately she has been seen out and about with Martin quite a bit, even getting photographed together on vacation in Sardinia, Italy. She opened up about the new man in her life today on Katie. “I trust him with my children’s life,” she said. “He’s a great man and, recently, we just got to know each other from a completely different side.”

When Heidi Klum and Seal‘s marriage broke up, we were praying that the two would go the classy route and not air their dirty laundry in public. They were one of our favorite couples, so having them split up was bad enough. In the months after the split, we decided that it was going to be okay, and that this divorce was going to be amiable, considering Heidi was reluctant to speak about what happened to Elle, even. They even joined forces to explain their separation to their kids in the calmest, sweetest way possible, and we know hard that is when two people are in the process of dismantling a marriage. Sadly, that nice streak ended this weekend when Seal had a chat with TMZ regarding Heidi’s alleged affair with her bodyguard.
He stated, on camera, that she was getting it on with him even during their marriage, telling the paparazzi, “Look boys, that’s what happens when two people separate, they move on and generally meet other people in their lives. I certainly don’t expect Heidi to all of a sudden become a nun. But as always my main priority is the emotional well-being of our children. And to be quite honest, if there’s going to be somebody else in their lives I’d much rather it be a familiar face.” And then he added the shocking part, “I guess the only thing I would have preferred …I would have preferred Heidi show a little bit more class and at least wait until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were. But I guess you now all have the answer that you’ve been looking for for the past seven months.” Woah … way to drop a bombshell, Seal! And while he said all of that in a very calm, serene tone, you can’t deny that this was something that had the potential to become pretty ugly. As for the bodyguard, that’s a photograph of him with Heidi, right below. And yes, she’s responded to his allegations already.
Heidi Klum is finally talking — well, sorta talking — about her split with husband Seal. And she’s doing it in the best way possible: by looking soft and beautiful off the cover of Elle’s April issue (an alternate cover from the Jessica Simpson one). We’ve actually been waiting to hear from her, since we’ve so far just read the (ex) couple’s joint statement and Seal’s take on the marriage breaking up. Heidi’s sort of addressed it, in a general way, but we’re glad she’s opening up a little more. Of the divorce, the supermodel reveals, “I feel like I’m in the eye of the tornado. It’s emotions inside of your body that are a tornado. And then the outside world doing all this craziness — with you wanting it or not wanting it — is another tornado. But as hard as it is, so is life.”
She also addresses the reasons why she’s trying not to talk about it, especially to the media. Heidi told the magazine, “I don’t want to talk positively or negatively about the ups and downs that we had. Every couple goes through things. Unfortunately, we’re in the public, so the highs are out there. But I don’t think it’s necessary — especially for our children — to have the lows being printed in magazines and talked about.” And just like that, we don’t want to know anymore, because we totally agree with her.

Even as Seal insists to Piers Morgan, Tavis Smiley and Ellen DeGeneres that he and Heidi Klum still love and respect each other, despite their separation, the gossip world is doing its darndest to dig up dirt on why the super couple is splitting. We’re kind of getting whiplash from this whole thing — do they still have a chance at a reunion, or has divorce been a long time coming? Draw your own conclusions based on these stories:
- TMZ still maintains that Seal’s “volcanic” temper is the cause of their problems. Talk about a blow to our image of the man who just sang Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” on Ellen.
- Some sources told People that the couple’s trip to Aspen over the holidays marked “the final straw” of their relationship. “Aspen didn’t go as well as planned … there were more lows than highs.” At the same time, paparazzi in the ski town were just as blissfully unaware as the rest of us: “They couldn’t stop kissing and cuddling. They spent a lot of time with their kids, but also managed to sneak in several solo ski runs together. If they were having problems, they were definitely not showing during the day.”
We can’t be the only ones whose weekend was ruined by the news that Heidi Klum and Seal are breaking up. They seemed like the ideal couple! In every single picture they’re either kissing or wearing insanely elaborate matching costumes. Honestly, we don’t know how to cope with the thought of never seeing them together at their annual Halloween Ball ever again. So to stave off the impending panic attack, we created the gallery below to relive the good old days. Click away to view the insane cuteness and the insane costumes!

After the really heartbreaking news that Seal and Heidi Klum were going to split up broke over the weekend, the duo released a statement regarding their separation to quell questions. It doesn’t give the personal reasons behind their decision, of course, but it’s something at least. It reads,
“While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate.Â We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart. This is an amicable process and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition.Â We thank our family, friends, and fans for their kind words of support. And for our childrenâ€™s sake, we appreciate you respecting our privacy.”
All they’ve really given us here is “we have grown apart.” Doesn’t really help when one of the most seemingly-happy marriages in Hollywood is falling apart. We really hope this one stays amicable, and we wish both of them well.
