Orlando Bloom and model Miranda Kerr confirm their three year marriage is over...
This was the one super model and couple I hoped would live a long lasting life together. I would have to say she's probably one of the world's most beautiful woman presently.
It's a pity. Hollywood couples. It never seems to last.
Now, there's going to be suitors coming out of the wood work.
Pirates Of The Caribbean star Orlando Bloom and model Miranda Kerr have announced they have split after three years of marriage.
A representative for the British actor confirmed the breakup to E! News.
The couple's spokesperson said in a statement: 'Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr have announced that they have been amicably separated for the past few months.'

After six years together, they have recently decided to formalise their separation.'
The statement continued: 'Despite this being the end of their marriage, they love, support and respect each other as both parents of their son and as family.'
The British actor and the Australian Victoria's Secret model began dating in 2007 before tying the knot three years later.
Miranda, 30, gave birth to the couple's son Flynn back in January 2011.
The couple were last pictured together at the beginning of this month, while their final public appearance together was at the opening night of Bloom's Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet on September 19.
The 36-year-old actor is currently starring in the play alongside Condola Rashad as his leading lady.
Despite already being separated for some months, Miranda gushed about her husband's performance to the November issue of Cosmopolitan.
'When I saw Orlando on Broadway in Romeo and Juliet, I was blown away,' she said.
'For someone to be able to learn all that and hold the energy to do it every day, six days a week - I have so much respect for him.
'We don't run lines though. We keep that very separate. That would be like me asking him to teach me how to catwalk.'
In fact, the couple still looked very much in love as they kept up the pretence of their marriage by cuddling up on the red carpet of Orlando's play opening.
Reasons for the split are not clear as yet, but the couple first denied rumours of an impending split back in January.
Miranda Kerr told the Today show: 'We're wonderful. He's such an amazing partner, an amazing father and we're just really lucky," Miranda said of her relationship.
'We do the best that we can with both of our schedules and we're really lucky to have each other.
'As long as [Orlando and I] know the truth, that's all that matters.'
And in December 2012 she was forced to deny a report of a growing closeness to actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
The model raised eyebrows in New York after being seen partying with the star.
Miranda partied the night away at Leo's birthday on November 10, then the pair enjoyed a dinner with friends on the 21st, before they were joined by Cameron Diaz at a club opening on the 30th.
But her camp strenuously denied the claims at the time, with a source close to the couple saying: 'Orlando and Leo are friends; Miranda and Leo are just friends.
'There is absolutely nothing going on with Leo. They have been very good friends for a very long time.'
The couple's busy work schedules could also have played a hand in the demise of their marriage.
Bloom filmed movie, Zulu, on location in South Africa last year and also flew to New Zealand to film additional scenes for The Hobbit on location from May to July.
Miranda often travelled to Europe for work and does runway shows for Versace and Christian Dior.
In September she was in Paris for Fashion Week where she walked the runway for Stella McCartney.
She also just shot the new campaign for Swarovski.
