Juicy Celebrity Breakups

Taylor Swift - Joe Jonas - 27 Second Phone Call

Blonde singer Taylor Swift and boyfriend Joe Jonas had a very public break-up that included Taylor dishing on Ellen about Joe breaking up with in a phone call lasting approximately 27 seconds.

She implied he dumped her for Camille Belle with hints he might have already been seeing her while still with Taylor.   The stunning country songbird told Ellen about the breakups and wrote a song about it.

Joe Jonas politely debunked Taylor's version of the break-up on his MySpace page by denying he had cheated on her by saying:

"I never cheated on a girlfriend. It might make someone feel better to assume or imply I have been unfaithful but it is simply not true. Maybe there were reasons for a breakup. Maybe the heart moved on. Perhaps feelings changed. I am truly saddened that anything would potentially cause you to think less of me."

The famous singing brother also responded to the '27 second' phone call attacked by saying"For those who have expressed concern over the ‘27 second' phone call. I called to discuss feelings with the other person. Those feelings were obviously not well received. I did not end the conversation. Someone else did. Phone calls can only last as long as the person on the other end of the line is willing to talk. A phone call can be pretty short when someone else ends the call. The only difference in this conversation was that I shared something the other person did not want to hear."

Jennifer Aniston - Brad Pitt - Breaking Up On An Exotic Island

The famous Friend and her equally famous Hollywood Hunk were rumored to have taken one last break-up trip to an idyllic Carribean island with dear friends Courteney and David Arquette.  Although the end of their marriage appeared to be handled with class and elegance, it was after Brad moved on to Angelina that the relationship ending morphed from civilized to he said/she said full out warfare.

The ongoing saga has continued to play out in the tabloids, even recently, and has been the featured cover story in some of the top magazines in the world.

Meanwhile Jen and Brad offer constant fodder for the media waiting to catch Jen or Brad having quiet get-togethers or Angelina and Jen meeting accidentally and beating the hell out of each other.  As if that would happen.  But hey, the paparazzi can dream.

Rhianna (Robyn Fenty) - Chris Brown - 2009 Grammy Weekend Beat Down

Although it has not been confirmed that the famous couple have broken up, many of their fans hope they have as a result of the beating Rhianna took at the hands of Chris Brown on Grammy Awards weekend.

While other celebrity couples have experienced violence in their relationship (Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown) their fights did not make it into the primary news event for a major awards show like Rhianna and Chris Brown.

Carrie Underwood - Chace Crawford - Text Messaging

The American Idol the hot guy from Gossip Girl broke up over a text message.  Carrie told TV's Extra at the taping of the show, Idol Gives Back, "It was completely mutual" and added, "We broke up over text so ... it's like ‘peace out.'

Since those famous SMS flew back and forth, Carrie has hooked up and broken up with a former Bachelor and is currently dating another professional sports jock.

DeAnna Pappas - Brad Womack - Left Standing At The Final Rose Ceremony

In what really did turn out to be the "most dramatic final rose ceremony ever" Bachelor Brad Womack dumped DeAnna Pappas on National TV by telling he couldn't offer her the final rose.  DeAnna as well as the rest of the fans were shocked.  While it is common for the various bachelors to break up quickly with their final picks on the show, at least they make it through the final ceremony.

Although Brad never really did explain himself and why he chose not to select DeAnna, the heart broken bachelorette went on to dump Jason Mesnick (who became the next Bachelor) and her ultimate pick, Jesse Csincsak.

Olivia Newton John - Patrick McDermott - Permanently Gone Fishing

Olivia Newton John's longtime partner Patrick McDermott ended his long love relationship with the popular entertainer when he simply disappeared from sight after going on a fishing expedition.  Although we may never know for sure, insiders have reported Olivia had no idea what happened to Patrick who simply vanished.

As recently as January it has been reported Patrick is alive and living on a boat off the coast of Mexico and faked his own death.  While it wasn't determined he specifically did that to dump Olivia, that's a pretty extreme way to end a relationship.

Other Celebrity Break-ups Of Note - Lily Allen & Perez Hilton On Twitter

Recently Pop Star Lily Allen broke up with gossip blogger Perez Hilton via Twitter.  How did she dump him?  She did a Twitter Block which means he can't post to her Twitter threads anymore.  Before Lily dumped Perez on Twitter they engaged in a very public war of words for their many thousands of "followers" to see.

How did Perez feel about Lily telling him to "go away" and telling the media she hated him?  He told Access Hollywood "that's sad because I don't hate her. I actually really enjoy her," he said.

During the Twitter exchange, Lily called Perez a "little parasite," and a "bitter lonely old queen," while Perez suggested the singer was only able to sell her new album, "It's Not Me, It's You," by cutting the sale price.

Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Email

While Lily dumped Perez on Twitter, Joe Jonas referred to Taylor Swift's breakup dishing on MySpace, Facebook is also a hot new social media channel for Celebrities to list themselves as in a committed relationship or available.   In fact, it is another non-confrontational way to dump someone quickly and with minimal pain to the dumper, not necessarily the dumpee.

And yes, there is always the old stand by, email.  It seems a little boring with today's hot new technologies so maybe to spice things up sending a Twitter Direct Message (DM) would be edgier.  Plus the number of characters are limited so there is little space for dragging the break-up out.

Of course with all the celebrity blogs and celebrity shows like E!, Access Hollywood and The Insider, a savvy publicity seeking celebrity could break up with their partner by doing an interview on one of these entertainment avenues, knowing their partner would definitely see it on the news.

Dumped By The UPS Guy

Although I can't name names, I know a B Movie actress who was recently dating a B Movie actor.  She suspected he was messing around with someone on one of his new movies but could never catch him and the fact they were both on the B list, the papparrizzi ignored their movements.

Being paranoid about his possible cheating she gave him the Third Degree until one day she unexpectedly received a huge box from UPS.  Inside were all her possessions she had kept at his house in Beverly Hills.  On top was a "We're Through" note which said, don't contact me again.

Although she was beside herself because he promptly changed his private cell number, blocked her on Twitter and changed his status on Facebook and Myspace I reminded her he didn't send the package C.O.D.

Juiciest Celebrity Breakup?

Of course Britney dumped her husband Jason Alexander by divorcing him after just a few hours.    Liz Taylor famously dumped Eddie Fisher by having a very public affair for the world to see on the movie set Cleopatra.  I'm sure there are many other examples I'm forgetting but hopefully you can all share your juiciest celeb breakup story with me.
