When Chris Pratt and comedic actress Anna Faris announced their separation, it is 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. And they were also shocked how fast he moved on.
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.
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani
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. After all, she had already had a pretty dramatic personal life.
When Blake and his 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.
Julianna Margulies and Keith Lieberthal
When "The Good Wife" actress Julianna Margulies stepped out with now-husband Keith Lieberthal, the paparazzi wondered who the dashing man on her arm was. Though he has movie star good looks, Keith is actually a lawyer. But no one would suspect otherwise - they look like a true Hollywood couple.
Julianna met the lawyer at a dinner party and the two married in 2007. With a considerable age gap between them and Keith’s appearance, many critics have commented on their relationship. She is quick to tell critics that he is more than just a pretty face saying “he is unbelievably bright and smart and went to Harvard Law.”
Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman
Simon Cowell may make the right calls as a judge on reality television shows, but behind the scenes, he doesn’t always use his best judgment. In 2013, the "X Factor" judge was dating celebrity Carmen Electra - and surely enough, it didn't work.
Though that union was unexpected enough, things got stranger when Carmen found Simon and now-fiancée Lauren Silverman in a rather compromising position. There was also the issue that Lauren was married to Simon’s good friend, Andrew Silverman. Though the couple got off to a controversial start, Simon has continued his relationship with Lauren and even has a child with her.
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. They're still going strong though.
