Kelly Osbourne & Matthew Mossheart Split! 5 Other Celeb Engagements That Ended

These high-profile pairs called things off before walking down the aisle.

Sad news -- Kelly Osbourne and her vegan chef finace, Matthew Mossheart, have called it quits. Us Weekly reports the couple, who had been dating for two years and were engaged in July, have parted amicably.

"Kelly Osbourne and Matthew Mosshart have decided to end their engagement," Osbourne's rep confirmed in a statement. "The split is amicable and the pair continue to have nothing but the utmost respect for one another. Kelly is looking forward to a new year full of fresh beginnings. No further comments will be provided by all parties and we request privacy, decorum and space from the press but don't expect it." 

True love seems hard to come by in Hollywood -- at least if the number of broken celebrity engagements is any indication. Here are five of the most high-profile pairs who never made it down the altar.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

When they started dating: The couple met in 2009 on the set of The Last Song and began a relationship soon after. They announced their engagement on May 31, 2012.

When they split:
The pair confirmed the end of their relationship on Sept. 16, 2013.  

Why the break?
There were rumors that Liam couldn't handle Miley's increasingly provocative behavior, while reports said he was seeing other women.  

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez

When they started dating: These two became an item in 2002, after meeting on the set of Gigli. They got engaged the same year.

When they split: They called off their September 2003 wedding just hours before the event. By January 2004, they were finished.

Why the break?
The couple postponed the wedding due to "excessive media attention" surrounding the event. That glaring spotlight on their relationship proved to be the end of "Bennifer."

Katie Holmes and Chris Klein

When they started dating: They met in 2000 and reportedly bonded over their similar upbringings and experiences as young stars in Hollywood. They were engaged in 2003.

When they split:
The couple called it quits in 2005.

Why the break?
"Life was changing and that adventure ended. It was a transitional period," Klein said of the split.

Brad Pitt and Gwyneth Paltrow

When they started dating: Paltrow played Pitt's wife in the 1995 film Seven and the two soon began an off-screen relationship. Pitt popped the question in December of 1996.

When they split:
Engaged bliss only lasted until June of 1997.

Why the break:
Paltrow says she called off the wedding because she wasn't ready for marriage.


Kiefer Sutherland and Julia Roberts

When they started dating: The high-profile pair began dating in the spring of 1990, and by winter, they were engaged. They met on the set of Flatliners.

When they split:
Three days before the wedding!

Why the break?
Roberts called off the ceremony, scheduled for June 14, 1991, allegedly because Sutherland was having an affair with a stripper.
