5 Surprising Short-Lived Celebrity Romances

These 5 surprising short-lived celebrity romances have long been forgotten now – they lasted just a minute and some seemed like absurd pairings to begin with! These 5 romances were just not meant to be, and these celebs have long since moved on and found someone else who is more compatible – but let’s look back on those awkward few dates and remember the romances that once were!

Julia Roberts & Matthew Perry


After Julia made a guest appearance on an episode of ‘Friends’, Julia and Matthew had a short romance back in 1996, and it is rumoured that Matthew struggled with a drug problem shortly after the split.

Madonna & Tupac

Madonna admitted that a certain interview with David Letterman went down the way it did because she was dating rapper Tupac Shakur at the time. She revealed the relationship: “I was mad at [David] when I said the F-word a lot. I was in a weird mood that day. I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and the thing is he got me all riled up about life in general. So when I went on the show I was feeling very gangsta.”

Nick Lachey & Kim Kardashian

Kim and Nick dated for a very short time in 2006 and Nick felt used. He commented: “Let’s just say this: We went to a movie. No one followed us there. Somehow, mysteriously, when we left, there were 30 photographers waiting outside.”

Pink & Joey Fatone

Pink was taken for ice cream by N Sync singer Joey Fatone: “Joey Fatone was in love with me. He took me to Friendly’s on a date and he bought me an ice cream. Such a sweetheart. He asked my dad’s permission!”

Shia LaBeouf & Rihanna

Shia admitted that he went on a single date with Rihanna but there wasn’t a spark: “It never got beyond one date. The spark wasn’t there. We weren’t passionate about each other in that way, so we remain friends.”
