According to a report in the
People magazine, Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper, 40, and British model Suki Waterhouse, 22, called it quits, bringing an end to their two year relationship.
On the heels of the split, we take a look at some of the other famous celebrity break-ups, including that of Salman Khan-Aishwarya, John Abraham-Bipasha Basu, Shahid Kapoor-Kareena Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor-Deepika Padukone, Tom Cruise-Katie Holmes, Brad Pitt-Jennifer Aniston and Gwneth Paltrow and Chris Martin.
SALMAN KHAN AND AISHWARYA RAI
The Salman-Aishwarya Rai affair began during the shooting of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’ (1999), but it lasted only a couple of years and Ash and Salman broke up in 2002. There was speculation that Salman’s abusive behavior had caused the split. Salman took the break-up badly, even entering Ash’s house and causing a ruckus. Her family filed a police complaint against the volatile actor. Accused of stalking his ex, Salman Khan said in an interview in 2002, “I love Aishwarya. I am not hounding her. It’s not a teenage obsession that I feel for her — it’s pure love. She’s such a traditional Hindustani girl at the bottom of her heart. The fact that she respects her parents so much makes me admire her more.”
SHAHID KAPOOR AND KAREENA KAPOOR
Shahid started dating Kareena Kapoor during the shooting of ‘Fida’, but the cutest couple of Bollywood broke up during the filming of ‘Jab We Met’. Shahid insists there are no hard feelings and says, “I wish her [Kareena] all the happiness in the world. I have great respect for her. She’s a wonderful girl.”

Ranbir, who has since then shared screen space with Deepika in the hit 2013 film ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ and the upcoming Imtiaz Ali film ‘Tamasha’, told The Times of India: “Everyone knows Deepika and I were in a relationship. They want to know how do we work together even after break up. However, we approached the film as two actors. We are acting and that’s important for me.”
