47 of 143: Katie Couic, 54, and her longtime boyfriend Brooks Perlin, 37, have called it quits after five years, a spokesperson for Couric confirmed to OnTheRedCarpet.com on December 13.

The two met in 2006 at a fundraising event for cancer research. A source close to Couric said the couple 'have different priorities and she felt it was time to move on.'

Couric was previously married to Jay Monhahan. The two wed in 1989 and had two children together. Monahan died of colon cancer in 1998 at 42. Couric then became an advocate of colon cancer awareness and famously had a colonoscopy on-air in 2000.
