Rupert Friend is far more than just a friend to Keira Knightley... if you know what we mean! We mean that this strange-looking, supposed...

Keira Knightley no longer has a friend. Rupert Friend, that is.

The long-time couple has split, according to the actress' father. He told The Sun: "They have broken up. They were together for quite a long time and it is always hard breaking up. She's focused on her work."

Knightley and Friend met in 2005 while filming Pride and Prejudice. She just complete filming on A Dangerous Method, while he will appear in the movie 5 Days of August later this year.

It's been a long ass while since our last Rupert Friend sighting, but it's very good to see that he and Keira Knightley are still together.

On Friday, the two of them were seen cozying up to one another while strolling through her London neighborhood. Aren't they sweet?

A Rupert Friend in need ... of some Keira Knightley lovin'!

The gorgeous Keira can be seen on film starring alongside Dominic Cooper in The Duchess. How is it? Follow this link for a The Duchess review!

That's Rupert Friend, people! Her boyfriend! Of, like, a long time! While the rest of you poor saps are hankering for a five-second glimpse of Keira Knightley naked in Atonement, this dude is seeing the real deal every day! All 80 pounds of it!

Keira Knightley stays bundled up and walks in step with boyfriend Rupert Friend during a chilly afternoon comprised of running errands in London on Wednesday.

In the estimation of The Hollywood Gossip staff, Rupert Friend is certainly among the least interesting celebrity boyfriends out there. All they do is walk around! Oooh.

There was a time when Cash Warren fit that bill, as all he and Jessica Alba did was show up at the occasional NBA game. But then he got her pregnant! Go Cash! What are you waiting for, Rupert Friend? Give us something to gossip about man.

We can't say with certainty that Keira Knightley and Rupert Friend are built to last, but they sure looked cozy on some recent nights out.

Braving snowy N.Y. weather while out for a walk in the SoHo neighborhood with beau of at least a year, Rupert Friend, Keira Knightley was somehow able to keep warm despite her thin frame. Phew.

The next night, the couple, dressed in hip attire, snuggled up together at a Chanel Beauté dinner at the N.Y. eatery, Balthazar, to celebrate the actress' new film, Atonement.

A source at the party tells us that Rupert "More Than A" Friend kept his arm around his girlfriend all night, adding that they were "very sweet together."

Looks like someone is trying to keep Keira Knightley naked all to himself. Can you blame him? Now if he'd just get her to eat a cheeseburger every so often, we'd be set.

Nope! Just kidding! Keira Knightley was indeed out with her hunky man… but this is not a picture of her Pirates of the Caribbean co-star, Orlando Bloom.

It just looks like him. Are we wrong? No. This is Rupert Friend, though. Or should we call him Rupert Friend… With Benefits! Sorry. It's a slow day. 

Hope this clears up any confusion. Regardless of who the gaunt Keira Knightley is seen out and about with, there are a couple of constants:

  • She and Rupert Friend are not engaged, despite rumors to the contrary.
  • She is getting sick and tired of the damn skinny jokes celebrity gossip sites always make about her!
  • We are still scarred by the image of her getting railed from behind by that squid dude in that bizarre porn comic strip we came across.

Gossip hounds love nothing more than when one of their favorite celebrities is dating someone new. Especially if that someone is relative unknown, an individual shrouded in mystery who we can't wait to learn about.

That said, The Hollywood Gossip has put together a list of some of its favorite obscure celebrity boyfriends who have come and gone in the past six months - along with some who are still hanging around. Because some of our subjects are, well, obscure, some of our details are sketchy at best. But we'll break it down for you as best we can.

1. Harry Morton

Celebrity Girlfriend: Lindsay Lohan
When They Got Together: Early July 2006
When & Why They Broke Up: Late September, 2006. Because Lohan is a train wreck.
Relationship Highlights: Harry Morton, heir to the Hard Rock fortune and president of the Pink Taco restaurant chain [insert crude Lohan joke here], was smitten with the actress last summer. But since he doesn't drink, and she does little else, it wasn't meant to be.

At least his family was reportedly going to buy the Arizona Cardinals' stadium and name it Firecrotch Field (okay, we made up the last part). After fading from the spotlight, there were rumors that Morton slept over at Paris Hilton's home on November 14, though we never heard more about it.

2. Braxton Olita

Celebrity Girlfriend: Ashlee Simpson
When They Got Together: 2005
When & Why They Broke Up: September 4, 2006
Relationship Highlights: Braxton, the guitarist in Ashlee's band (yes, she actually has a band) captured her heart for what seemed like an eternity in Hollywood. She even declared that she was saving herself for the Hawaiian. But alas, they broke up with little fanfare. It's just as well. Braxton was probably sick of listening to her not sing live. That's right, she doesn't sing.

3. Samuel Plouchart

Celebrity Girlfriend: Nicole Richie
When They Got Together: October 6, 2006
When & Why They Broke Up: There was never really any news about it, but no one ever heard from Samuel Plouchart again after October 11.
Relationship Highlights: Wondering if Plouchart, the fashion editor at the French magazine Citizen K, brags to pals that he got the sloppy thirds of Brody Jenner and DJ AM.

4. Max Snow

Celebrity Girlfriend: Mary-Kate Olsen
When They Got Together: Sometime between September 20, 2006 and October 18, 2006. On the latter date, the more famous one of the Olsen Twins was seen with Snow. But in mid-September, she was reportedly with Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci.
When & Why They Broke Up: For some reason (probably money), the 21-year-old Snow appears to like dating Mary-Kate and is still together with her.
Relationship Highlights: The absurd outfits Mary-Kate and sister Ashley Olsen wear. And the way the tabloids try to describe Max Snow. Is he a rocker? No. Does he dress like one? Yes. Does he have friends that are rockers? Yes. Does anyone know what Max Snow does with his life besides hang out with Mary-Kate? No. Thus, he's a perfect addition to this list.

5. Nick Zano

Celebrity Girlfriend: Kristin Cavallari (present)
When They Got Together: Mid-November, 2006. On November 8, we ran a pic of Cavallari and Jason Wahler together. Not sure if they got it on, but she was reportedly single at that point. She and Nick Zano were first spotted in public together November 21.
When & Why They Broke Up: They rung in the new year together and are still dating and sucking face wherever they go. At first, this relationship seemed like a cheap ploy to make her ex, Brody Jenner jealous, but now it's looking like these two lovebirds are quite content with each other.
Relationship Highlights: For Nick Zano, that he gets to make out with Kristin Cavallari in public. For us, that we get to post Kristin Cavallari pictures online. Which may sound pathetic, but it's better than nothing.

6. J.R. Rotem

Celebrity Girlfriend: Britney Spears
When They Got Together: December 11, 2006
When & Why They Broke Up: December 12, 2006. He's a dirtbag.
Relationship Highlights: Andy Warhol, who once wrote that everyone has 15 minutes of fame, would be proud of this "music producer" for trying to exploit his after a one-night stand with Britney. Then he'd roll over in his grave as Rotem got negged at Hyde the next night.

7. David Katzenberg

Celebrity Girlfriend: Mary-Kate Olsen, Nicky Hilton (present)
When They Got Together: Early November, 2006
When & Why They Broke Up: Still going strong as of late December. Nicky Hilton keeps a lower profile than sister Paris, so it's harder to keep track of her.
Relationship Highlights: Other than the revelation that David Katzenberg also used to date Mary-Kate Olsen on the day he and Hilton were first seen together, not many. Seems like a nice young man.

8. Rupert Friend

Celebrity Girlfriend: Keira Knightley
When They Got Together: Fall 2006
When & Why They Broke Up: For the moment, at least, Keira appears to have a good friend. In Rupert Friend. Sorry, we just can't get enough of that one.
Relationship Highlights: There were rumors that the two were engaged about a month ago, but it turns out they were just bickering. Since then, Keira wasting away to nothing before our eyes, Rupert looking like a cross between Orlando Bloom, a psycho old dude and the infamous Nick Nolte mug shot.

9. Stavros Niarchos

Celebrity Girlfriend: Mary-Kate Olsen, Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton (present)
When They Got Together: We're not even going to attempt to answer that
When & Why They Broke Up: Presumably because he cheated on one of the above celebrities with another of the above celebrities
Relationship Highlights: By now, the Greek God of Poontang isn't really obscure anymore. To quote Office Space, the guy gets around... like a record. But at some point, he was just some rich Greek shipping tycoon's kid. He hasn't done a thing to be famous except be wealthy and get his freak on with this triumvirate of pain. We salute Stavros Niarchos for that, sure - we just refuse to acknowledge that he's an actual celebrity. Then again, we feel the same way about Paris Hilton, whom he may or may not be getting engaged to soon.

10. Isaac Cohen

Celebrity Girlfriend: Britney Spears
When They Got Together: Early January, 2007
When & Why They Broke Up: Still together, as of this posting, but knowing Spears' track record (see #6 above), it could be off by the time you read this.
Relationship Highlights: A steamy boat ride and one public appearance are all we have to go on at this stage. Initially, people criticized Cohen for looking a bit too Kevin Federline-esque, but it looks as if he cleans up well. Moreover, a couple of our readers claim to know Isaac Cohen a little and say he is a decent guy who is not out for publicity. Here's hoping he can "spank the skank" out of our girl.

Putting rumors of their breakup to rest, Keira Knightley and Rupert Friend, her boyfriend of several months, bundle up for a dinner outing in London on Monday. See below: 

Nice to see they're still an item. Maybe rumors of their split can finally be put to rest. A few lingering questions are not ready to be put to rest, however:

  • Why does Rupert Friend look like a serial murderer?
  • Why has Rupert Friend not had his hair cut since 2003?
  • How did Rupert Friend possibly land Keira Knightley?

by Hilton Hater at . Comments

First, there were reports that Keira Knightley and Rupert Friend were engaged. Then, they weren't. Now, we have no idea.

But we do have a couple of anonymous sources willing to talk about the relationship!

One pal (maybe it was Scarlet Johannson, they hang out a lot) said:

"Keira's a really loving girlfriend but she's so insanely busy with work ... She's done everything in her power to make Rupert feel important but he still complains that he doesn't get enough attention, and it's causing real friction."

Does that mean this couple will go the way of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston?

Or is there still hope the pair will turn out like Prince William and Kate Middleton?

Another sources said Rupert has told pals he feels like the "fifth element," saying Keira puts family, friends, work and "everything else" before him.

The Hollywood Gossip says: suck it up, dude. You get to often make out with this beautiful star; we're left with nothing but Keira Knightley pictures.

Wanna trade spots?
