Here's looking at the most rock solid Hollywood relationships that surprisingly ended with the partners going their separate ways.

It's not unusual to see relationships and marriages crumble in the volatile world of Hollywood. 

Just recently, Reality TV star Kim Kardashian ended her 72-day marriage to basketball player husband Kris Humphires after the two exchanged vows in a glitzy wedding. It was one of the shortest Hollywood marriages.

But what truly strikes as surprising is when stars who've been going strong and steady for a considerably long time call it quits.

Johnny Depp and his French partner Vanessa Paradis have been together for the last 14 years but are rumoured to be heading for a split.

The couple have two kids -- daughter Lily-Rose Melody Depp and son John "Jack" Christopher Depp III.

We take a look at other Hollywood couples, who broke up after more than a decade of being together.
