Keira Knightley, Rupert Friend split after five years




Brit actress Keira Knightley is on the market once again, splitting from boyfriend of five years Rupert Friend, the U.K.'s Sun reports. Wow, Keira and Shakira single, both in the same week? This has to be a sign of the end of the world.

"Yes, they have broken up," father Will Knightley told the paper. "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."

That's so sad; they seemed like such a perfect couple after meeting on the set of 2005's Pride and Prejudice. Now the 25-year-old actress will have to find a new man. But could a man willing to pair up with Knightley be found on this Earth? Only time will tell.
