Dallas-based relationship expert Dr. James Houran says there are three factors that break up celeb couples: Acting jobs that give participants a chance to flirt with others; popularity, which can instill jealous feelings; and children, because celeb couples with kids are more likely to stick together.
Based on those factors, Houran says Timberlake and Diaz have three strikes against them and are the least-likely celebrity couple to have a long-term relationship.
Other celeb romances whose days are numbered include Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez, who have 2.5 strikes against them, and so do Leonardo DiCaprio and Gisele Bundchen; and Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner.
Meanwhile, Houran says Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have the best chance of long-term love, since their relationship only has a half-strike against it.
