Following celebrity couples can sometimes feel like a sport, well, a sport which cancels its teams every few years. When you look back, there have been so many crazy celeb couples that now you probably couldn't imagine ever existing. The early-2000s were a crazy few years, folks, and a lot of unlikely celebs got together... Then broke up. While some previous celebrity couples are forever entrenched in history as a part of celebrity couple canon — like Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake for example — others are less celebrated.
Of course, not every celebrity couple can go down in history for wearing matching all-denim outfits on the red carpet together, so some just slip through the cracks of pop culture history without ever receiving their proper commemoration. People seem to always remember the couples with compound names like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez's "Bennifer" or Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's "Brangelina," but it's important to pay your respects to the other celebrity couples that nobody ever really thinks about. Some of them were iconic duos, and some were simply "flings." However, if you are to consider yourself a true celebrity-couple aficionado, you need to familiarize yourself with these past celeb couples who you likely would never put together in your mind.
