7 Celebrity Couples That Called Off Their Engagements

All the speculation surrounding the status of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth's engagement feels like a case of celebrity déjà vu.

Stars get hitched left and right, making grand announcements about their future nuptials, but if the past has taught us anything, it's that no matter how happy they may look, we shouldn't hold our breath.

If Miley and Liam really did call it all off post-proposal it wouldn't be the first time. By our count it would be at least the seventh...


Britney Spears and Jason Trawick – In the broken engagement Hollyscoop correctly broke before the couple made it official, Britney and Jason called off their wedding on January 11 of this year.


Jay Baruchel and Allison Pill – Right after Valentine's Day, on February 16, the most recent to breakup before walking down the aisle is Judd Apatow-favorite Jay and "The Newsroom" star  Allison.

The two got engaged in December 2010 and waited and waited and waited…and yeah, that's when everyone should've seen this one coming.


Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow – The couple who were dating for two and a half years appeared to have it all—they were the Hollywood darlings of the late '90s. Then, suddenly, they weren't. On June 16, 1997, the golden duo, who were set to marry, shocked fans when they decided to part before death do they...


Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck – It seemed like the media spotlight was too much for Bennifer Afflopez. Due to "excessive media attention," the two announced they'd be postponing their wedding ceremony, except that statement apparently was just a decoy to cushion the blow of their ultimate break up.


Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood – It's been about three years, but time can't erase that one time when Marilyn and Evan were planning to love each other forever and ever times infinity. They got engaged in January 2010, but it was a short-lived seven-months. The two split by the end of the year.

Marilyn Manson and Rose McGowan – And this wouldn't be the first time for Marilyn, either. Pre-ERW (Evan Rachel Wood, duh), he was engaged to Rose McGowan. In theory, this Hot Topic couple may have worked, but in practice, it seems they were a Hot Mess. Not each other's match in matrimony.

Kelly Osbourne and Luke Worrall – In 2010, Kelly and her model fiancé ended their engagement after she learned he had been cheating on her during their two-year relationship. It was not an amicable split. This engagement getting called off was definitely for the best.
