'No longer my best Friend'

Everyone knows that January is the month for sweeping away dead wood physically (if you live in a ranch) and metaphorically - but celebs seem to take this rule more seriously than civilians, if the rate of current break-ups is anything to go by. Keira Knightley and Rupert Friend are the latest golden couple to call it quits, with Knightley's pa informing the tabloids.

Keira's dad told the Daily Mail, 'Yes, they have broken up. 'But that's the way things go, unfortunately. The only option is to get on with things. They were together for quite a long time and it is always hard breaking up. She's focused on her work.'

Another pal told the paper, ‘Rupert hates the idea of being followed and photographed. Keira partially had to accept it because of her rising profile. It affected the harmony in the relationship. The pressure took its toll and both decided they should go their separate ways. They will remain life-long friends.’

If not life-long Friends...
