30 Celebrity Couples You Never Saw Coming

When celebrity couples officially announce their partnership, it takes the world by storm – sometimes in a good way, sometimes in a bad way. They’re no strangers to the spotlight, but that spotlight gets much brighter when a celebrity announces they’re dating another celebrity.

Look at some of the celebrity couples today – Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Emily Blunt and John Krasinski, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, and Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling. These celebrity couples have captured the hearts of millions. 

They blow us away at every red carpet, they put a smile on our face when they work together, they leave us in ‘awe’ when they’re seen in public, and they restore our faith in celebrity couples – especially since most celebrity couples see their relationship end before it really starts.

While some celebrity couples seem like the perfect match and come at no surprise to fans around the world, other celebrity couples are a bit more shocking. That’s not to say the relationship doesn’t or won’t work out, but it might come with its fair share of doubt or criticism.

It goes to show that you never really know who you’ll connect with until you give them a chance. One of the secrets to finding that special someone is putting yourself out there and giving yourself an opportunity to find them. If you’re not looking or trying, then don’t expect to find them. 

Since we spend so much time talking about the same celebrity couples over and over, let’s take a break and talk about some of the most shocking and surprising celebrity couples of all-time – the ones that made us say, “Wait, they’re dating each other?” when we first heard about them. 

30. Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck 2.0

In the early 2000’s, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck were one of the most popular celebrity couples in the world. They were engaged in November of 2002, but called off the wedding in January of 2004. In one of the biggest and most shocking surprises of 2021, the couple got back together after J-Lo’s split from Alex Rodriguez

29. Zoë Kravitz & Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum was in a 10-year marriage with Jenna Dewan, but it abruptly came to an end in 2019. Two years later, Tatum teamed up with Zoë Kravitz, daughter of Lenny Kravitz, to direct Pussy Island. Around that same time, rumors started to swirl about a relationship between the two. They’re still together today, though they haven’t tied the knot yet. 

28. Cameron Diaz & Benji Madden

Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden met in 2014 at a dinner party hosted by Diaz and Nicole Richie – who is married to Benji’s brother. Diaz and Madden started dating shortly after and continued to shock the world with their marriage in January 2015. They’ve remained together ever since, welcoming their first child in 2020 – a daughter named Raddix Madden

27. Taika Waititi & Rita Ora

In April 2021, rumors started to swirl that Rita Ora – who has dated the likes of A$AP Rocky, Lewis Hamilton, Drake, Rob Kardashian, and many more – was dating Taika Waititi. In an even more shocking turn of events, the two were seen getting cozy with and kissing actress Tessa Thompson. The two are still enjoying each other to this day.

26. Anna Kendrick & Bill Hader

Bill Hader and Anna Kendrick met while filming Noelle in 2017 – their characters were siblings. Over the next three years, Hader divorced Maggie Carey and later Rachel Bilson before rumors of him dating Kendrick started to surface. They started dating in 2020 and fell in love with each other. Unfortunately, their relationship came to a halt in June of 2022. 

25. Rachel Bilson & Bill Hader

Speaking of Bill Hader and Rachel Bilson, their relationship was quite shocking, as well. They originally met in 2013 while filming The To Do List. At the time, the two weren’t linked, but they got along well. Six years later, they were finally seen on a date and confirmed their relationship in 2020. Unfortunately, it didn’t last long and Hader eventually moved on to Anna Kendrick.

24. Jessie J & Channing Tatum

Before Channing Tatum and Zoë Kravitz were a thing, Tatum was fooling around with none other than Jessie J. She was the first person Tatum dated after his split from Jenna Dewan. They were first seen together in late-2018 and dated throughout 2019. They reportedly split in March of 2020 and again in April of 2020. He starts dating Kravitz nearly a year later.

23. Seth MacFarlane & Emilia Clarke

Seth MacFarlane and Emilia Clarke are one of those former celebrity couples that some people are still learning about.

Unfortunately, the two split in 2013. 

22. Matthew Broderick & Sarah Jessica Parker

Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker are a celebrity couple you wouldn’t predict, but they’ve been together longer than most non-celebrity couples. In 1991, shortly after breaking up with Robert Downey Jr., Jessica Parker met Broderick and the two started dating in 1992. They got married in 1997 and have been married ever since – over 25 years!

21. Carmen Electra & Simon Cowell

At first glance, Carmen Electra and Simon Cowell are polar opposites. At second glance, they’re still polar opposites – which is why their dating comes as such a surprise to most people. They started dating in December of 2012 and split not long after in February of 2013. Nonetheless, the two spoke highly of each other and Electra even said he would make a great father someday.

20. Rashida Jones & Tobey Maguire

Rashida Jones has dated some high-profile celebrities, but one that came as a huge surprise was Tobey Maguire – did you know they dated for three years between 1997 and 2000? What’s even more surprising is that Maguire didn’t gain the role of Spider Man until 2002 – a role he later reprised in 2004 and 2007. Meanwhile, Jones’ acting career was just getting started.

19. Kourtney Kardashian & Travis Barker

Kourtney Kardashian was in a nine-year relationship with Scott Disick and the two even share three kids together. They split in 2015 and Kourtney has since dated Justin Bieber, Younes Bendjima, and Luka Sabbat before shocking the world with Travis Barker.

18. David Spade & Naya Rivera

Naya Rivera, who tragically drowned on July 8, 2020, was once married to actor Ryan Dorsey and was even engaged to hip hop artist Big Sean for a hot minute. Perhaps her most surprising relationship, which only lasted a few months, was with comedian David Spade. It happened in 2017 – Spade was 52 at the time and Rivera was only 30. 

17. Florence Pugh & Zach Braff

Speaking of age gaps, let’s talk about Florence Pugh (who is 26) and Zach Braff (who is 47). In August of 2018, Braff tweeted about Pugh’s performance in Lady McBeth. Roughly four months later, the two were reportedly dating and have been dating ever since – though rumors of a breakup started to swirl recently. Nonetheless, they seem to be together for the time being.

16. Macaulay Culkin & Brenda Song

Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song met in 2017 during the filming of Changeland. Later that year, they went on a double date with Seth Green (who directed and wrote the movie) and his wife. Though they’re one of the most unlikely couples of all-time, they remain happy together. In fact, they welcomed their first son in 2021 and recently announced their engagement.

15. Olivia Wilde & Harry Styles

In September 2020, Harry Styles replaced Shia LaBeouf in an upcoming movie Don’t Worry Darling, which is being directed by Olivia Wilde.

They were later seen kissing and have been involved ever since, though they don’t talk about it. 

14. Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton

In April 2014, Gwen Stefani joined The Voice as a judge, joining three others – one of which was Blake Shelton.

They engaged in October 2020 and wed a year later. 

13. Lenny Kravitz & Nicole Kidman

We’ve already talked about his daughter, but now let’s talk about Lenny Kravitz and one of his most shocking lovers – Nicole Kidman. The two started dating in the early-2000s when Kravitz was Kidman’s landlord. They eventually got engaged, but never wed and kept their relationship secret for a long time. Kidman and Lenny’s daughter, Zoë, co-starred in Big Little Lies in 2017. 

12. Brigitte Nielsen & Flavor Flav

Brigitte Nielsen and Flavor Flav were perhaps one of the most surprising celebrity couples of 2004 and 2005. They originally met during the filming of The Surreal Life (third season) and began dating shortly after. They even had their own spinoff show called Strange Love, which described their relationship perfectly. They stopped dating sometime in 2005. 

11. Katharine McPhee & David Foster

In May 2017, rumors started to swirl when David Foster and Katharine McPhee were intimate with one another during a dinner. Throughout 2017, they denied there was a relationship, but it was growing more obvious by the month. Low and behold, they attended the 2018 Met Gala as a couple, got engaged in July 2018, and married in 2019. There’s a 35-year age gap. 

10. Adele & Rich Paul

Adele originally shocked the world when she lost around 100 pounds a couple years ago.

They became Instagram official in September 2021 and have sparked several rumors since, including breakup rumors, engagement rumors, and potential future kids. 

9. Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly

Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly were one of the biggest surprises of 2020. They originally met in March 2020 and it didn’t take long before Fox was featured in one of MGK’s music videos. They became Instagram official in July 2020 and made their red carpet debut later that year. The two are currently engaged and are working on wedding plans. 

8. Madonna & Tupac Shakur

In the mid-1990s, two icons joined hands in what would become one of the most overlooked power couples. Though it didn’t last long, Tupac Shakur and Madonna met at the 1993 Soul Train Awards – they were introduced by Rosie Perez. The two dated for about a year, but a disagreement between the two ultimately led to their breakup. Imagine if they stayed together.

7. Madonna & Dennis Rodman

Speaking of Madonna, she has always been one to surprise us with her relationship choices. Aside from Tupac, she also dated Dennis Rodman for several months in 1995 – after her breakup with Tupac. He was a member of the San Antonio Spurs at the time, before winning three-straight championships with the Chicago Bulls. Their fling came as soon as it went. 

6. Elon Musk & Grimes

Elon Musk is the richest man in the world, worth over $200 billion in 2022. With that much money, dating anyone would come as a surprise – after all, he can probably have anyone. That’s why it’s an even bigger surprise that he had an on-again off-again relationship with Grimes. In fact, the two have a son and daughter together. They recently split again in 2022.

5. Pink & Joey Fatone

This one might surprise a lot of people because they kept it a secret for so long. Back in 2000, Joey Fatone asked Pink out on a date – he took her to Friendly’s and bought her some ice cream. In fact, he even asked her father for permission to go on the date, though he denies this allegation. Unfortunately, she friendzoned him and it never worked out. 

4. Ashley Olsen & Lance Armstrong

While Ashley Olsen has dated her fair share of celebrities, she does her best to keep her love life private – which is why many people will be shocked to learn she dated Lance Armstrong. The two started to see each other in 2007, but one of Armstrong’s business partners warned him that the relationship would ruin his reputation. The fling lasted a couple of months. 

3. Cher & Tom Cruise

Despite the 16-year age gap between the two, Cher and Tom Cruise had a fling of their own in the 1980s. They first met in 1985 at Madonna and Sean Penn’s wedding. They dated for a little while, but their busy schedules forced them to separate. Years later, Cher admitted that Cruise was one of her top-5 lovers all-time. She often reminisces about what could’ve been.

2. Pete Davidson & Kim Kardashian

Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian were first seen together at Kid Cudi’s birthday party in January 2019. At the time, they weren’t romantically involved and Kim was still married to Kanye West. Later that year, following her split with Kanye, Kim was seen holding hands with Pete and they became Instagram official (sort-of) in late-2021. They’re still together today.

1. Chelsea Handler & 50 Cent

Of all the shocking and surprising celebrity couples through the years, perhaps the one that takes the cake is Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent. The two had a two-month fling in 2010 and while they’ve remained close friends to this day, they separated shortly after getting together. The fact they dated is something they joke about to this day.
