We all have our favorite celebrity OTP. Whether they are a dream or they have become reality, we will ship them until we meet our graves. In 2015, many 'ships were formed — but while some sailed, others stayed at the dock because they were never real to begin with. That's right: In addition to a lot of crazy real celebrity relationships, 2015 also included some insane celebrity dating rumors that — I'm sure I can speak for all of us when I say — we all still wish were true to this day.
We've all read the headlines. We've all scrolled through the "facts" and "evidence." We've all felt the sense of disappointment when the celebrities we were rooting for publicly denied their relationships. Despite all of this, some of us have refused to throw in the towel. No matter how realistic (or unrealistic) these relationships have appeared, we stand by these OTPs and, sometimes, have more faith in them than some of our own relationships.
This year alone, some pretty crazy relationship rumors swirled that had us all scratching our heads. While some of our original OTPs like Louis Tomlinson and Eleanor Calder, and Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards called it quits, "new love" was blossoming. Unfortunately, a lot of this new love turned out to be false.
In honor of the year's end, here's a roundup of some of the biggest relationship rumors from this year that we all still wish were true.
Prince Harry And Emma Watson
Unfortunately, this one was a major no-go. Back in February, Watson slammed rumors started by an Australian tabloid that she had been having "secret dates" with the royal, and went on to tweet to her devoted Twitter followers: "WORLD ... Remember that little talk we had about not believing everything written in the media?! also..... marrying a Prince not a prerequisite for being a Princess."
Gigi Hadid And Zayn Malik
Very shortly after it was reported that Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid had called it quits, the blonde supermodel was spotted out with former One Direction member Zayn Malik, and the rumor mill began to furiously spin. While neither party has quite confirmed the relationship, the future might be bright for this pair — especially since the release of this "Instagram official"-looking pic above that Malik posted to his Instagram in the wake of the rumors.
Camila Cabello And Shawn Mendes
Once it was announced that these two talented teenagers would be working on a duet together, rumors began flying. The adorable pair have shared several moments that make them look like they are in a relationship, making their 'shippers go nuts. However, neither side confirmed evidence of a relationship. Does this mean that this 'ship is a no go for 2015? If so, there might still be hope for 2016, from the look of things...
Louis Tomlinson And Danielle Campbell
Now that this 1D member is officially on hiatus from the band, is he looking for love? While the "Perfect" singer is expecting a child with friend Briana Jungwirth, he has been spotted out with actress Danielle Campbell everywhere from NYC to Chicago, fueling rumors that the two are in a relationship. They would be an adorable couple!
Liam Hemsworth And Jennifer Lawrence
This one has been a long time coming, for those of you Hunger Games fans. This is a story that is all too familiar to us: fans shipping their favorite co-stars both on and off screen. This rumor began to circle after J. Law split from her now ex-boyfriend, Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin — but the rumors were then quickly shut down. Sorry!
Niall Horan And Selena Gomez
This dating rumor has been around the block a few times before, but this year, it came back stronger than ever. The pair sparked rumors when they were spotted getting cozy at Channing Tatum's wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum's birthday party in early December, and then when they continued to hang out publicly. Even though Gomez spoke out to say the pair are just friends, rumors continued to swirl. What is the truth?! Should we take the "Same Old Love" singer's word for it and just drop it?
Justin Bieber And Kourtney Kardashian
This is one that I still can't wrap my head around. While it is clear that the two are very good friends — in fact, Bieber is very close with the entire Kardashian/Jenner clan — the rumor that Justin Bieber and the Kardashian might be dating is very unlikely, and possibly, the most unlikely rumor of the year.
Out with the old, and in with the new. A new year, a new list of ridiculous celebrity dating rumors. Here's to more speculations and rumors in 2016! Based off of this year's odd pairings, I'm sure there are plenty more to come in the new year.
