This is a petition for Barbie and Ken to get back together or for Barbie to not have a boyfriend at all. We're looking for 100 signatures before Barbie's 52ND Birthday.

Barbie's first boyfriend, Ken, debuted two years after Barbie in 1961

Ken was named after the son of Mattel founders Ruth and Elliot Handler

Ken and Barbie broke up on Valentine's Day in 2004 after being together more than 43 years

In 1961, Barbie® was introduced to a true doll - Ken®! This blue-eyed dreamboat was completely cute and incredibly athletic - and always up for a date at the beach with the quintessential California girl.

For over 45 years Ken has stood by Barbie's side, her only boyfriend. Lately Barbie has been posting to her twitter page about her relationship with Ken that have really upset her fans. 

"For the hundredth time, I promise I'm not with Ken! I'm very much single and actually talking to a new boy right now..." http://twitter.com/BarbieStyle/status/17807348779

"Can't believe @PeopleMag says I'm back with Ken... so not true! But I do heart their comparison of him and @JakePavelka1! http://bit.ly/aTWh3j" http://twitter.com/BarbieStyle/status/18136146081

This tweet is one that is truly upsetting to long time Barbie And Ken fans:

"Decided to go glam today on my beach date with my mysterious man (don't ask, I'm not telling!). Big hat and a one-piece suit... so excited!" http://twitter.com/BarbieStyle/status/18204129190

Keep in mind that Barbie is fictional and that it's whoever is running her account that is doing this.

Barbie's on-again, off-again boyfriend" Ken was introduced as Barbie's arm candy in 1961.  Starting out with nine outfits, a skinny frame and fuzzy crew cut, he's always stood by Barbie, despite headline-generating break-ups. 

In the book "Barbie All Dolled Up: Celebrating 50 Years of Barbie" by Jennie D'Amato on page 108 it says that Barbie and Ken officially got back together after Ken's 2006 makeover. A quote: "Two years after the story broke--to the relief and delight of fans everywhere--Mattel announced a reconcilation: Barbie and Ken were officially "Back together" As, happily, they remain today." At what point they broke up again, we don't know.

"Ken is a really passionate and emotional guy and he digs that Barbie is such a formidable woman"- Michael Keaton
