The fact that ska-rocker Gwen Stefani would get together with country crooner Blake Shelton was shocking enough, but rumors that they began hooking up while he was still married were even harder to believe.
When Blake and then-wife Miranda Lambert ended their marriage in 2015, the celebrity gossip world immediately suspected that Blake’s co-host on “The Voice,” Gwen, had something to do with it. The couple also went public after Blake’s divorce — strange timing if you ask us. Though Blake and Gwen eventually married, the couple still faced controversy given their timing.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
Musician John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen are often considered to be one of the most divisive couples in show business. Though it was cute at the beginning of their relationship, fans have grown tired of Chrissy’s constant oversharing of their marriage.
Things got even more controversial when Chrissy was allegedly engaging in some not-so-nice behavior on social media. Fans feared that Chrissy’s bullying would affect his career. Though the two are certainly less in the spotlight than they once were, they have remained together much to our surprise.
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger
When Chris Pratt and comedic actress Anna Faris announced their separation, it’s safe to say that the internet lost it. Fans had placed so much hope in the adorably hilarious couple and were shocked to see that it didn’t work.
Fans even speculated that Chris left Anna after getting more famous (and buff!). While we’ll never know exactly what happened in their relationship, many fans have had trouble accepting his new marriage to Katherine Schwarzenegger (yes, Arnold’s little girl). Despite the frequent criticism directed at the new couple, they seem to be happily married.
Kevin Jonas and Danielle Deleasa
Talk about a vacation to remember — when Danielle Deleasa met Kevin Jonas on a trip to the Bahamas, the New Jersey natives instantly clicked. The former hairdresser had no idea that Kevin’s band, The Jonas Brothers, would become the pop phenomenon it is today.
As their fame grew, Danielle began to experience the pitfalls of dating a teen heartthrob. She was subjected to online vitriol directed at her by both trolls and Jonas Brothers superfans. Thankfully, she has shrugged off the criticism and is still happily married to the oldest Jo-bro.
Jerry Seinfeld and Jessica Sklar
“Seinfeld” may have been a “show about nothing,” but Jerry Seinfeld’s romance with Jessica Sklar definitely is something. The two met at a Manhattan gym in 1998.
Though sparks flew, there was one problem — Jessica was actually married! She soon divorced her husband and married the comedian a year later. Though her ex-husband told media outlets that the couple had “no respect for decent values”, (ouch!) that didn’t put an end to their controversial love story. The pair have been married for more than two decades.
