Demi Moore Tops Shocking Celebrity Breakups; Olivia Wilde Defends Kim

UPDATE-Demi Moore has joined the honorary list of shocking celebrity break ups while actress Olivia Wild defends Kim Kardashian’s divorce.

Demi Moore and Ashton have called it quits. Over. Six years of marriage, a 16 year age difference and a girl named Sara Leal. Demi released her official statement last evening confirming what many knew was inevitable:

“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life. This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.”

Next on the list: Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. A reality TV queen, a jock and $18 million on the table.

“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage. I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.”

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. A diva ready to pop and an allegedly controlling husband. A definite recipe for disaster.

“We have decided to end our marriage. This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters.”

“It is a painful time for all involved,” the statement continues, “and we appreciate the respect of our privacy at this time.”

Olivia Wilde didn’t make our list of shocking celebrity breakups but she did jump the defense of Kim K.

Cowboys & Aliens star Olivia Wilde has jumped to the defense of the target of the week, Keeping up with the Kardashians star, Kim Kardashian.

Despite that “fan” Cyndy Snider launched a 125,000-signature Kardashian boycott proclaiming Kim’s 72-day marriage to NBA player Kris Humpries a sham that should end the popular E! network Kardashian Family reality show, Wilde is standing firmly in Kim’s corner. She told the New York Post: “I empathize. It’s not easy.” “[Divorce] is the hardest thing in the world.”

Wilde suffered her own media onslaught when she filed for divorce earlier this year from Tao Ruspoli. She recalled the experience in a Glamour magazine feature last June: “It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. The mark of a good marriage is partnership and continuing to feel inspired by your spouse. I had that with Tao. But the end is not necessarily the tragedy. Staying in a relationship that is no longer working is the tragedy. Living unhappily–that’s the tragedy.”

Olivia further empathized with Kim stating, “People judge you because divorce is seen as failure. [Kim] took a risk. No one should be attacking her. Our attention should be focused on things that are truly scandalous.”

Do you agree that it’s time to move on from the Kim K. 72-day marriage fiasco?
