Biggest Break-ups and Hottest Hook-ups of 2008

2008-12-22 12:21

Mark Fish, Herschell Gibbs, Pam Andrews – SA had their fare share of shock break-ups and shotgun weddings this year while Madonna, Mariah and Jennifer Aniston kept us entertained with their relationships on the International front.

Mark and Loui Fish
Soccer star Mark Fish left his wifey and mom of his kids for a younger poppie. Even before the divorce was finalised (and Loui's new boobs were paid for), Mark was spotted getting cozy with his shiny new toy. Mark offered to pay Loui R150 000 per annum for every year that the marriage lasted.

Herschell and Teniel
Herschell's wife of one year (yes, only ONE year) had initially demanded a monthly maintenance of about R100 000, saying she had become accustomed to a lavish lifestyle. She also publicly name-bashed poor Hersch while he was out of the country, calling him an abusive drunk. SA's bad boy of sport recently entered a rehab facility for alcohol abuse and there is no word on how much Teniel scored in the divorce settlement.

Pam Andrews
The girl from the Cape Flats, Pam Andrews, a former member of the group 101 shocked everyone when she got married — and it wasn't to her long-time fiance, Paul Viv. Pam married Frederick Thivlin, and it was rumored to be a shotgun wedding. Not even her family back in the Cape knew about the nuptials.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie
Madonna ends her marriage of eight years to Guy and moves on to New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez. Guy is rumored to receive a large settlement for staying with the material girl for so long, and proves that perseverance pays off eventually.

Mariah Carey and Nick Canon
WTF?! That's all we can say about this. 38-year-old Mariah and 28-year-old Nick married at Carey's private estate in the Bahamas in April this year. We aint sayin' he's a gold digger…

Jessica Alba and Cash Warren
Someone pass the shotgun. Jess married longtime boyfriend Cash when she was eight months pregnant in the Beverly Hills courthouse. They were casually dressed, with Jess wearing a long blue dress and her hair back in a ponytail.
Cash, in a white shirt and brown pants, arrived with Alba at about 11:30am on Monday May 19, applied for a marriage license and waited about 40 minutes for the paperwork to be processed before a staff member from the courthouse married them. We think Jess deserved a much better wedding.

Jennifer Aniston and John Meyer
Jen and John have been canoodling all year; they stopped for a bit, and then canoodled again. Frankly, we're a bit tired of them. Jen needs to get knocked up soon, or slip a nip, the photos of her leaving John's house in the wee hours are no longer all that exciting.

Beyonce and Jay-Z
From the 70 000 white orchids to the famous guests and the expensive cigars, Beyonce (26) and her man Jay (38) had a super private, super expensive wedding in New York in April this year. The power couple has never spoken out about their relationship or the wedding, which hopefully means they'll stay together forever.

George Clooney and Sarah Larson
Cocktail waitress Sarah Larson almost bagged her a big one. She was the first woman to walk the Oscars red carpet with George, and she even moved into his Hollywood Hills home. The relationship had everyone wondering if it was the end of George's longtime bachelorhood. But then Larson did the unspeakable –she had a breast argumentation after George asked her not to, and ended up losing the hottest old man around and a lifestyle of glitz. She must be the dumbest biaatch around. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
