Bündchen described this difficult time in their relationship in an interview with CBS This Morning. Fortunately, she stuck it out and the pair got married three years later.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon (Actor)
Actor Nick Cannon and pop superstar Mariah Carey met at the 2005 Teen Choice Awards after Nick presented her with the Choice Music R&B Artist Award. Although Cannon had already been crushing on the singer for years, it took a while after they met for their relationship to leave the friend zone.
The pair revealed their relationship in 2008 after Cannon appeared in Carey’s “Bye, Bye” music video. They both felt the other was their soulmate as Cannon allegedly said after meeting the diva that he knew she was the one he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. They got married that same year and had a set of twins. Unfortunately, after a few years together this unlikely couple separated.
Steve Harvey and Marjorie Harvey (Audience Member)
Steve Harvey first laid eyes on Marjorie Harvey when she walked into a comedy club while he was performing on stage. He allegedly stopped the show to watch her walk to her seat, and when he started his routine again he said, “I’m sorry, I don’t know who this is, but I’m going to marry her.” The feeling seems to have been mutual as Marjorie had said, “I was over the moon for Steve when I first met him.”
The only problem was that Harvey was still married to his first wife, Marcia Harvey. Even though he and Marcia split in 1994, it would be another 15 years before he and Marjorie got married. They dated briefly after his divorce, but ultimately Harvey moved on and was married to another woman, Mary Lee Harvey, between 1996 and 2005. After his second divorce, Harvey and Marjorie finally got their chance and started their relationship. They got married in 2007 and have been happily wed ever since.

Famed drummer Ringo Starr fell in love with Maureen Cox, an 18-year-old from Liverpool who was learning to be a hairdresser at that time. Although she was just a teenager, Cox was a regular at the Cavern Club, which was a popular hangout spot for The Beatles back then. It wasn’t long before the two hit it off and became inseparable.
After learning that Cox was pregnant in 1965, the lovebirds got married and went on to have three kids together. However, the rockstar lifestyle ultimately led to their demise. During the height of their relationship, they went everywhere together, but it seemed to be too much of a good thing. Their divorce was finalized in 1975, as Starr’s countless affairs and excessive drinking led to problems in their marriage.
