There was no shortage of tears from Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez fans when the pop star announced his marriage to model Hailey Bieber. Given their tumultuous dating history, and Justin’s habit of running back to ex-Selena whenever times got tough, many Jelena fans thought they would see their favorite couple rise once again.
Unfortunately for them, Justin and Hailey tied the knot in 2018 sending shockwaves across the celebrity entertainment world. The couple seems happier than ever, aside from the occasional trolling that Hailey still receives from diehard “Jelena” fans.
Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr
Country music is full of lovelorn partners and heartbreak, but that was nothing compared to what happened between country music star Jason Aldean and former cheerleader Brittany Kerr.
Jason was still married to his ex-wife, Jessica Ussery when pictures of him locking lips with Brittany at a nightclub hit the tabloids. Though Jason apologized and tried to make it work with Jessica, the couple separated a year later. Fans were shocked when Jason continued seeing Brittany, even marrying her in 2015. While the couple has gradually been accepted, many still haven’t forgotten their controversial start.
Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed
When it comes to navigating friendships and relationships, most people abide by the code “don’t date your friend’s ex.” "Twilight" actress Nikki Reed obviously didn’t get that memo when she began dating actor Ian Somerhalder — the ex of her best friend, actress Nina Dobrev. The two married just months after Nikki’s divorce from her first husband was finalized.
Some believe that Nina left “The Vampire Diaries” (the show that she and Ian starred in opposite one another) because of Ian and Nikki’s relationship. Though the couple insists that the three are friends, many fans still find their whole relationship questionable. Talk about a vampy love triangle!
Tilda Swinton and Sandro Kopp
Tilda Swinton is known for her unique look and unforgettable on-screen characters, but it turns out that her private life is just as fascinating. Tilda’s partner is Sandro Kopp, a German artist almost 20 years her junior. The actress is also surprisingly close with her first husband, John Byrne.
The three have become so close that many wonder if they are in some sort of “throuple” relationship. Despite the salacious rumors, Tilda calls her relationship with the two men “quite boring really” and says that “life doesn’t have to be complicated.” We agree Tilda!
Florence Pugh and Zach Braff
Zach Braff has been linked to some of Hollywood’s biggest stars so it wasn’t surprising when he hooked up with British actress Florence Pugh. What was surprising, however, was that the two have about 21 years between them!
Internet commenters instantly called Zach out for dating a woman far younger than him. But Florence didn’t let their criticism slide, she took to Instagram to defend her romance by telling the haters, "I'm 24 years old, I do not need you to tell me who I should and should not love."
