In sad and unexpected news from the political world, former Vice President Al Gore and his wife Tipper Gore are calling it quits after four decades together.

The environmental advocate and his spouse have announced, via an e-mail to friends, that they are separating. Their 40th anniversary was just last month.

"We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate," stated the e-mail, first obtained by Politico.com.

"This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration."

The Gores' brief, joint statement concluded: "We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further."

Married since May 1970, Al and Tipper Gore are splitting up.

Gore spokeswoman Kalee Kreider confirmed the statement came from the Gores, The Associated Press reports, but declined to elaborate on the matter.

Al Gore became the highest-profile advocate for environmental and climate change issues since losing the 2000 Presidential election by a razor-thin margin.

Tipper Gore is known for advocacy on mental health issues, and for an active role in the Parents Music Resource Center during her husband's time in office.

Al, 61, and Tipper, 60, have four grown children: Karenna, Kristin, Sarah and Al Gore III. We wish the spouses and their kids the best in this tough time.

In celebrity breakup news we didn't see coming whatsoever, Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson are splitting up after five years together, UK sources say.

The sensational break-up comes just six weeks after they announced their engagement. But it's legit. They've worked out the details of their separation.

Gavin has told friends it is over and is expected to move out of their £1.2 million home in Wales while singer Charlotte stays there with their children.

A source revealed that Gavin is expected to find a new place nearby so he can visit regularly. No third party is believed to be involved in the breakup.

Last night an insider said: "It is an incredibly sad state of affairs."

"Both Gavin and Charlotte are deeply distraught. But after a lot of soul-searching, they realized this is the best course of action for them and the children. It was a mutual decision, even if to the outside world they were a golden couple."

"Truth is, they had the same insecurities as anyone else. Charlotte is very headstrong. In the end, Gav found it all to be too much. He was blaming her for his rugby career stalling. She hated him going out drinking with mates."

That'll do it every time.

The relationship reached the breaking point when Gavin flew to Norway in March to film celebrity reality show 71 Degrees North. Charlotte was preparing her comeback as a judge on BBC1's Over the Rainbow, and "really needed him at home."

Men. Can't live with 'em ... pass the cosmos. In other UK news, Cheryl Cole was just named the World's Sexiest Woman. Don't get any ideas, Gavin.

When Sayid and Shannon on the Lost series finale, it was touching. Sadly, for star Naveen Andrews, his life is not imitating art on the romantic front.

Andrews and his girlfriend of 12 years, actress Barbara Hershey, have called it quits. His manager says the amicable split happened six months ago.

Hershey, 62, and Andrews, 41, met back in 1998 on a film set. Hershey is perhaps best known for her roles in Beaches and Hannah and Her Sisters.

The two briefly separated in 2005, during which Naveen fathered a son, Naveen Joshua, with another woman (he was granted custody in 2009).

We wish them both the best in this difficult time.

Heidi Montag has separated from Spencer Pratt, and from all indications, it's not the publicity stunt you probably assumed it was when you read the headline.

"Heidi is looking to move out due to all the fake bad press that Spencer controls," her rep told TMZ. "She's tired of it and wants to focus on her acting career."

The Plastic Pairing

Reports say Heidi Montag is looking for a new place to live in Malibu.

Things have grown particularly tense and erratic for Speidi lately, even by The Hills stars' exalted standards, culminating in Spencer calling the cops on her mom.

That was just one incident in a relationship defined by turmoil. Says a friend of Heidi's on the building tension between them: "It wasn't just a sudden thing."

Wow, this puts a whole new spin on the THG Caption Contest too ...

Other sources close to the pair say Heidi Montag is pulling the plug on her marriage primarily because Spencer Pratt has taken away her friends and family.

Well, yeah. Four years late on that realization, H?

Heidi has been complaining bitterly that Spencer is so controlling he's isolated her from all those close to her. But the final straw came earlier this month.

That's when Spencer called the cops on Darlene Egelhoff, Heidi's mom, when she arrived at their house. Heidi stood by her husband at first ... no longer.

Meanwhile, Montag wants to break into acting but says people in Hollywood don't want to work with her because she has "a loose cannon of a husband."

She and a friend are renting a beach house for now. As Heidi herself puts it, "I want more girl time. This is going to be the best summer of my life!!!!!!"

She also Tweeted earlier in the week, before reports of the pair's split surfaced: "I am not Heidi Pratt, I am Heidi Montag." So telling. So deep. So profound.

Spencer has yet to comment, which is extremely unusual for him. Dude hasn't even Tweeted since May 25! But we gotta ask ... whose side are you on?

Crystal Bowersox lost more than an American Idol crown this week.

She lost a boyfriend.

Appearing on Ryan Seacrest's radio show today, the runner-up to Lee DeWyze said she and boyfriend Tony Kusian broke up on Tuesday morning because "he wasn't cool with the lifestyle."

The split, which occurred mere hours before the final performance night, was 100% mutual, Crystal said:

“We’re both logical, grown adults. He’s a small town guy and it’s fine. I’m a small town girl but I want this. I want this more than anything - this career, this lifestyle. I didn’t think he was up for it. He didn’t think he was up for it.”

Crystal Picture

It doesn't sound like there are any hard feelings on Crystal's end at all: “He’s been amazing. He stuck it out through this whole thing.”

Ever the sage, Kara DioGuardi, who also appeared on the programed, chimed in and told Bowersox: "You have to do your music. It’s not a choice for you. It’s what makes you whole. If somebody can’t hang with that - I’m sure he’s a lovely guy but right now this is your dream.”

Who do you think should have won American Idol?

When she commented in a recent interview that she wasn't sure if beau Dominic Cooper is "the one," we thought Amanda Seyfried was just being honest.

Turns out she was being very honest indeed.

Seyfried and Cooper are no longer dating. "Amanda and Dominic have been on and off for a while – and right now they're taking a break," a source says.

"But they're great friends and could still get back together."

While Seyfried has been promoting her new movie Letters to Juliet, Cooper has been at the Cannes Film Festival, where he was spotted talking to - RUN!!!

Amanda Seyfried and Dominic Cooper are done ... for now.

Sorry, we wanted to give Amanda and fans a heads up before saying he was with Seyfried's former Mean Girls co-star Lindsay Lohan, with arms around her.

Moving on with Lindsay? A move worthy of a mean girl ... or guy.

Seyfriend and Cooper met while filming 2008's Mamma Mia! and had a long-distance relationship, keeping close via Skype and meeting when they could.

"There's nothing easy about [it]," Seyfriend tells InStyle.

Apparently nothing at all. But maybe someday soon.

It's over for Audrina Patridge and Ryan Cabrera. They had a good four months of dating going. We are sad it didn't last longer for them. But we're not shocked.

The Hills star cycles through boyfriends in prolific fashion, as we all know, and a source confirms that she and her latest one split up "a little over a week" ago.

"Things started to go awry the night of her birthday and she ended things after that - pretty much the next day," explains an insider of the now-former couple.

Audrina Patridge, who just turned 25, and Cabrera, 27, spent May 9 in Las Vegas partying at Liquid Pool at Aria, then later at Las Palmas Latin Supper Club.

Ryan Cabrera and Audrina Patridge have called it a relationship.

Things seemed to be going so well, too, but they took a turn for the worst early this month. The biggest issue behind Audzo's breakup with the lame singer?

"Ryan’s a constant partier and that became an issue," says the source. "Audrina was crying at Wango Tango ... MTV made her film and she didn't want to."

The former couple first dated several years ago, and then rekindled a romance last January. They were spotted vacationing in Mexico together in February.

Patridge's last on-screen romance was Justin-Bobby Brescia, ending last year. There was also Corey Bohan ... and Tal Cooperman, and Brody Jenner, and ...

Halle Berry is now a single mother.

Radar Online was the first celebrity gossip site to report that Berry has split with her model boyfriend and baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry. Moreover, these sources say it was Aubry's decision!

"Gabriel just felt it wasn't working anymore," an insider said. "When they were first together, the nine-year age difference between them didn't phase him, she was the most beautiful woman he had ever dated and he was totally in love. But as time went on he started feeling it more and more."

Halle

This source adds that "Gabriel started noticing other women, and being attracted to other [women], and he felt it just wasn't right to stay with Halle in those circumstances."

That's why this report seems questionable. Look at these Halle Berry pictures. Come on, Gabriel! With all the talk about Megan Fox and Heidi Klum and other desirable females, is there anyone more consistently gorgeous than Halle Berry?!?

Berry and Aubry are the parents of Nahla, who the actress gave birth to in in March 2008. Reports indicate that a custody arrangement has already been agreed upon.

If this is truly the end for Bubry, let's take a look back at their relationship via the following photo retrospective:

"It's like he's always been a part of our lives."

CLOSING THE DOOR: Sandra Bullock and Jesse James are getting divorced, but as one door closes, another opens - and she's focusing her energy on her new son!

Of the cheater, she says: "I really don't know how our paths will intersect in the future, but the father I have known Jesse to be ... is one that I hope Louis can experience one day, no matter how Jesse and I go on with our lives."

Jesse's response: "I know in my heart I can be the best father possible to my children, and realize that this is an incredible mountain to climb. But believe the steps I have taken in the last 30 days are the foundation to making this happen."

Rehab or not, it looks like Sandra's divorce plan is in full effect.

She and Jesse, who has three children from two previous wives, have been married almost five years. Follow the jump for more on Sandra's divorce and baby ...

Jodie Sweetin's house is no longer full. Or some funnier Full House double entendre.

A judge has made her divorce from Cody Herpin official, her rep confirmed to E!.

Timberlake and Biel Photo

The marriage came to a crashing halt in all of three years for the pair.

Her transportation coordinator spouse, who she wed in July 2007 after just two months of dating, helped her bear a daughter, Zoie, the following April.

Soon after, she separated from Cody Herpin.

Things got ugly fast. He claimed Sweetin had fallen off the wagon and sought full custody of Zoie. She denied the allegations, insisting she was still sober.

Ultimately, they reached a truce and agreed to joint custody. But it's still over.

We really thought Jodie Sweetin and Cody Herpin would last, too ...
