Messy breakup stories from former couples Andi Eigenmann & Albie Casiño (top), Dennis Trillo & Jennylyn Mercado (middle), and Mo Twister & Rhian Ramos (bottom) left the public wondering, "Do you call that love?"

Year 2011 is said to be a "time for negotiation."

That is according to astrologers, who also warned that those who "try to force the issues and make things worse will achieve nothing, or will just ultimately fail."

Could this be the reason why the relationship of Jennylyn Mercado and Dennis Trillo ended in a muddled heap?

The ex-couple parted ways, far from amicably, in March.

Igniting the feud was a heated exchange between their managers Becky Aguila and Popoy Caritativo.

And adding fuel to the fire—claimed the pro-Dennis camp—was the tell-all interview of the first female StarStruck Survivor with YES! magazine.

The result: Seven months later, both have moved on with their separate lives, but neither seem ready to bury the hatchet.

Similarly, the love story of Mo Twister and Rhian Ramos came to an "ugly" end.

Even before they could officially admit their relationship, their split was announced on Twitter by Mo himself last April.

But that, it turned out, was just the tip of the iceberg.

From angry tweets on social networking sites, the Mo-Rhian breakup has been elevated to a court battle, with the Kapatid host crying "abortion" and the Kapuso actress crying "harassment."

In addition, the motormouth Paparazzi host has relocated to New York, while the controversial teleserye star has announced her hiatus from showbiz.

Andi Eigenmann is another story.

As events played out, the "cheater" tweet of young star Albie Casiño last May was just a prelude to a full-scale fight with his girlfriend, the equally young star Andi.

A month later, the Agua Bendita star admitted to being pregnant, and much later disclosed that Albie is the father of her baby.
