There have been so many shocking celebrity divorces lately, even by Hollywood standards. Not just breakups, but actual marriages crumbling before our eyes.Seal, Heidi Klum

Some did surprise us more than others, but we can honestly say we didn't see any of these divorce filings - all from the last 12 months alone! - coming at all.

Which of these splits shocked you the most? Vote in our poll below ...

  • Kris, Kim Photo
  • Leah and Corey Split!
  • Michaele and Tareq Salahi Picture

10. Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard. The New Girl star and the Death Cab For Cutie member certainly seemed like a perfect match. Apparently not.

9. Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries. Okay, not all that surprising for myriad reasons we have been over ad nauseam on THG. But 72 days?! Idiots.

8. Tareq and Michaele Salahi. Like Kim and Kris, nothing about these two truly shocks us. Except her running off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon.

7. Leah Messer and Corey Simms. The stars of Teen Mom 2 seem so happy ... on the episodes that are still airing now! Well, not last night's. Still!

6. Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore. Seemed an odd fit at the start, but their split came totally out of left field. Now she's taking nitrous hits. Nitrous.

  • Maria Shriver, Arnold Schwarzenegger

5. Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Apparently not the marrying type.

4. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz. Remember them? We forgot too.

3. Katy Perry and Russell Brand. They're polar opposites, but were so crazy about each other and we thought it was just crazy enough to last forever.

2. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver. The heiress to the Kennedy political dynasty and the Governator seemed as rock solid as they come.

1. Heidi Klum and Seal. Still fresh, but as stunning as any other celeb divorce we can remember based on the couple's perpetual displays of love.

Which celebrity divorce filing shocked you most?

It may be the job of Jennifer Lopez to give her opinions on season 11 of American Idol - which kicks off tonight - but the singer's boyfriend has comforting news for all that don't receive Golden Tickets:

It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks!

"Age, status, n opinions of others are irrelevant," Casper Smart Tweeted this morning. "Our hearts are endless and our souls infinite. Our ages are mere reminders of the hours logged on this earth and the precious time remaining."

The 24-year old dancer added: "We should all honor our time here by indulging our passion and dreams. So, close your ears and open your hearts; Love and be happy!"

J. Lo proceeded to reTweet the messages, meaning... we have no idea actually. But, hey, as long as these two are enjoying themselves!

Oh, it is on between American Idol and The Voice.

During their panel discussion at yesterday's Television Critics Association winter press tour session, judges Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler left little doubt that they don't care much for NBC's singing competition, which gets underway on February 5.

Three Idol Judges

Among the disses lobbed at The Voice by this trio and/or Fox executives:

“It’s a compliment to Idol. We’re not hiring a lot of people from The Voice to be on our show.” - Fox reality president Mike Darnell on Kelly Clarkson joining The Voice as a mentor

"It was almost like second chance people; it wasn’t some new artist.” - Randy Jackson on The Voice champion Javier Colon having had a contract with Capitol Records

 “This is the show that produces the stars.” - Producer Ken Warwick

“We will never, ever rip of Star Trek like The Voice did with the chairs.” - Jackson

Finally, Randy responded to a question about why four consecutive Idol champions have had a penis, saying: “May the best talent win. If it’s another boy this year that’s the most talented person, that’s who should win... Look at the success of Justin Bieber; there are a lot of girls who vote for boys, that’s just what happens.”

Which singing competition do you like best?

The incredible journey of American Idol kicks off again on January 17, and contestant should be warned: there will be no more Mr. Nice Judges.

"It was hard for me in the beginning to say 'no' at all," Jennifer Lopez tells TV Guide Magazine. "[This year] we're just as honest and just as compassionate, but maybe a tiny bit more blunt about it... it has to be tough love. Maybe we're a little tougher on the tough-love part."

American Idol Cover Story

What about the presence of The X Factor and The Voice? Is the team worried about singing competition overkill?

"There's only one Coca-Cola," Randy Jackson said in response. "There may be many different variations made, but this is the original one. That's why I still call this the greatest talent show of its kind."

Jackson adds that there's a big difference between Idol and Simon Cowell's British important: the former is a "more intimate show," he says, elaborating:

"I think that's what really helps these kids. It's focused on us, yes, but not so much that you lose focus on the kids' talent. We never want to overshadow that."

Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart got down and dirty with each other on New Year's Eve.

The American Idol judge and the 24-year backup dancer spent the weekend in Miami Beach, according to People, starting the party on Thursday night at nightclub Amnesia.

"They were very sexy with each other, dancing and bouncing around and making out," a witness says, adding that the pair hung out until 3 a.m. "They couldn't help but attract attention, although Jennifer was trying to lie low from onlookers."

Marc Anthony is reportedly steamed over J. Lo's romance with Smart, even threatening to take away custody of her children, but another source says Lopez looked "very happy" at the hot spot.

She and Smart are hotter than ever, in fact, as insiders confirm they went out on a yacht Friday afternoon, while J. Lo went shopping with her daughter on Saturday afternoon.

The couple stayed at a private residence all weekend and rang in 2012 at the Soho Beach House with friends.

Take that, Marc!

The divorce between Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony may have started off amicably enough... but the former's relationship with backup dancer Casper Smart has thrown a contentious wrench into the couple's split.

Following reports that Anthony was throwing tantrums over J. Lo moving on so quickly, the latest issue of Us Weekly states that Anthony is set to cause major problems between the pair.

After initially ceding primary custody to the American Idol judge, Anthony is now "going back on his word and saying his wants joint custody," an insider tells the tabloid.

  • Custody War?
  • Marc Anthony on the Mic

Why would Anthony use the former couple's twins in such a manner? The answer is simple, says this source: "He wants to make Jennifer suffer because she's having fun with someone new, and he knows this will hurt her on the deepest level."

Overall, the divorce is "getting vicious," the magazine reports.

With the relationship between Casper Smart and Jennifer Lopez heating up, source say the latter's ex-husband is boiling over.

Us Weekly reports that Anthony is "going nuts" over J. Lo moving on so quickly with her 24-year old backup dancer, "throwing fits and tantrums" and losing "a lot of weight" over the last few weeks.

But apparently Anthony isn't the only one taking issue with Smart.

The tabloid has also talked to friends of  Lopez who aren't sure if Casper is the right man for her, either. Says one insider of these pals, and of the star with three marriages on her record:

"They don't feel Casper is good enough for her. They are worried because she really puts her heart out there for love."

It's that time of the year again.

With 2011 drawing to a close, THG is here to present our 5th annual Celebrity of the Year Award. Before we arrive at the top spot, however, we're counting down from number-10, honoring those that delivered the best scandals, most raunchy sex tapes and most ridiculous shenanigans of the past 12 months.

The rankings kicked off last week with everyone's favorite trainwreck, Lindsay Lohan. Now, it's on to number-9 and the bootylicious artist who returned to national consciousness after years out of the spotlight... Jennifer Lopez!

J. Lo Motivational Poster

J. Lo was named a new American Idol judge in late 2010 and didn't waste any time using TV's top-rated show to get her wayward career back on track. She released a new single as soon as season 10 premiered; she quickly established herself as a panelist who, like Paula Abdul, grew emotionally-invested in contestants - remember this crying clip? - but, unlike Paula Abdul, was not insane.

Lopez offered sharp commentary and critiques without the snark of Simon or the repetitiveness of Randy. She also took full advantage of high-definition televisions to remind the world: I AM GORGEOUS.

After rising to prominence once again via Idol, Jennifer took a couple of strategic steps to ensure she'd remain in the headlines even after season 10 concluded:

  1. She dragged out contract negotiations.
  2. She was involved in a potential sex tape scandal.

Even Kris Jenner had to be impressed by these savvy moves.

Then, July hit - and J. Lo morphed back into a tabloid favorite due to her divorce from Marc Anthony. How was she dealing with the split? Did Anthony really cheat on her with a stewardess? With Jada Pinkett Smith?!? The chatter kept coming, but Lopez remained mostly quiet, staying above it all in interviews and simply saying she still believed in love.

Has she found it now with 24-year old backup dancer Casper Smart? Probably not. But these two appear to be having a good time and, after the year we just described, can you blame Lopez for wanting to have some naked fun with a guy nearly half her age?

Neither can we. We've missed Jennifer Lopez, we're glad 2011 brought her back into our lives and, like Pitbull in the image above, we're anxious to stand back and watch to see what 2012 brings for this beauty.

Casper Smart is currently hanging in Morocco with one of the best looking celebrities on the planet, chilling in North Africa with new girlfriend Jennifer Lopez as she prepares to perform at the Morocco Mall in Casablanca this week.

But the 24-year old backup dancer - who has an unusual connection with John McCain - can't fully relax. Why? Because he has a question for all the haters out there: What the heck, yo?!?

Casper Smart Picture

"I don't understand how people can speak on other people or things they know nothing of??!!! #CRAZY Off to Morocco!!!!" Smart Tweeted before taking the trip.

He was responding to criticism about how quickly he and J. Lo became an item after she filed for divorce from Marc Anthony, following this message with a Re-Tweet of a follower's that reads:

"Why are ppl judging @Caspersmart no 1 knows how long @JLo was separated be4 she announced the divorce ppl need 2 stop being so quick 2 judge."

Yeah. We couldn't have said it better ourselves. We likely could have written it better, however, using proper punctuation and all.

Just how serious are things getting between Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart? The pair vacationed together this week in Hawaii... along with J. Lo's three-year old twins!

The 24-year old backup dancer was "great" with the children, an insider tells Us Weekly, detailing how he "was twirling them around and doing flips with Emme and she seemed very comfortable with him," while "Jennifer got a chance to sit back and relax while Casper took over and played."

Jennifer Lopez Fiat Commercial Still

Lopez came under pretty heavy fire this week by shilling so hard for Fiat during her American Music Awards that even Kim Kardashian referred to it "too much." Okay, not really. But John Legend called out his fellow artist.

But Jennifer's personal life is going a lot smoother. Following the AMAs, witnesses spotted Lopez "grinding in Smart's lap, giving him a kiss and rubbing his head" at Greystone Manor in West Hollywood. He's a lucky fella.
