There are some celebrity couplings that no one understands. I mean, most of the time you can see the chemistry, or the attraction, but some couplings are just so strange that you can’t help but wonder what’s going on. Jordan’s latest marriage anyone?! Here are the other couples that have had me confused and bewildered...
1. Britney Spears and Adnan Ghalib

This was a shocking relationship from the start...Dating the paparazzi?! It’s a bit like dating your stalker, and Adnan made a lot of money from his ‘intimate’ album with Brits. There were even rumours of a sex tape, but Adnan never came up with the footage. Regardless, the couples relationship never really settled down, and they broke up soon after they got together. And then Brits went off the rails...
2. Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton

The oddest thing about these two wasn’t how mismatched they look, or the huge difference in ambition, but the fact that they carried a vial of each other’s blood around their necks. They also bought side by side grave plots...the couple only lasted three years before Ange moved on, though, and she’s much more suited to Brad. Still, this is definitely a contender for weirdest marriage ever!
3. Mel B and Eddie Murphy

Mel has definitely grown up since his spice girl days, and since her lingerie campaign, she’s been a firm feature on the sexy-and-single circuit. Until funny man Eddie came along...the man can make me laugh until I cry, but the two together just seemed so unrealistic. They sealed their admiration for each other with tattoos of each others names...but it all fell apart when Mel got pregnant, and Eddie refused to see Mum or baby.
4. Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher

I’m a huge Demi fan, but even I was shocked at the huge age difference between these two. 21 year old Ashton was closer to 42 year old daughter Rumurs age when the two started dating, and Rumur admits to having pictures of him on her wall and finding him very attractive. But the awkwardness wasn’t the only thing...Ashton was caught in a sex text scandal earlier this year, leading the press to conclude that Demi was just too old. The couple seem to be back on track, and I for one hope it stays that way. They do make a cute couple...it’s just a little weird!
5. Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter

Helena is a stunning woman, and has the perfect amount of grace...she’s such a lady! Behind the scenes, though, she swears like a sailor and is said to be amazingly strong...and Tim has a different persona all of his own, being the dark genius behind ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’, and ‘Edward Scissorhands’. The couple are even rumoured to have separate houses, connected by a hallway. Yep, there is some strange happenings there!
6. Celine Dion and Rene Angelil

These two are a pretty cute couple...I mean, it’s easy to mistake him for her father, but apart from that, they look pretty cute. It gets a little weird when you look into it, though...Rene first heard Celine’s single in 1981, when Celine was just 13 years old, and has been in the ‘background’ for her entire career. It’s a little cringe-worthy that he was involved before she hit high school, but hey, the couple are certainly lasting the test of time!
7. Hilary Duff and Joel Madden

Hilary hit the big time after Lizzie Maguire made it big...children loved her, and parents were overjoyed by the refreshingly innocent stars fame. Joel and brother were forging a career out of moody poses and dark songs...and so the two were never going to go together perfectly. They tried desperately to find a look that suited them both, and split up badly, with Joel moving on to date Nicole Richie, who Hilary then branded a ‘skank’. Ouch.
I’m so glad I don’t have friends in relationships like these...I mean, for some of them, it’s worked out well. Celine Dion always looks happy, and has sang some amazing love songs! But for others, such as Hilary, it proves just too weird, and the relationship inevitably ends. Can you think of a strange celebrity couple I’ve forgotten? I’d love to hear about them!
