7 Celeb Couples That Were Accused Of Being Fake

3 min read

Don’t act so surprised…

For years celebrities have teamed up in faux relationships to get publicity for a project that they’re working on, and most of the time it works.

Kim Kardashian became arguably the most famous person in the world, everyone’s OTP was Troy and Gabriella, and the Twilight series broke box-office records.

Here are nine iconic Hollywood relationships that were most likely publicity stunts but we went along with them anyway:

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens

Sorry High School Musical fans, but maybe their love story was just too good to be true.

The pair might’ve had real feelings for each other, but it seems a bit suspicious that they stopped dating as soon as the Disney film series ended.

Selena Gomez and Zedd

Remember Zeddlena, who coincidentally started “dating” around the release of their collab I Want You To Know?

After a few flirty Instagram posts and a couple of red carpet appearances, the relationship fizzled out and no one was really surprised.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

Before she was the Kim Kardashian, the reality TV mogul married basketball player Kris Humphries in a huge TV special in 2011.

Of course, their marriage ended after 72 days when Kardashian filed for divorce and to this day Humphries claims it was 100% real love. Sure, Jan…

Nick Jonas and Delta Goodrem

Perhaps the strangest celeb PR relationship was 18-year-old Nick Jonas and 27-year-old Delta Goodrem for 10 months in 2011

Rumour is that Goodrem used the relationship to try and make it big in the US at the time while also getting over her ex Brian McFadden, but the pair have since reconnected as friends after Joe Jonas appeared as a coach on The Voice Australia.

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson

It’s the typical relationship that begins when two actors star together as love interests on-screen and conveniently provide a ton of press for their film series, but people were sceptical about their authenticity.

The pair dated for just over three years until Stewart was photographed having an affair with her Snow White and the Huntsman director just before the final Twilight film was released in 2012. YIKES.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

Although they share a daughter together, you have to be sceptical about a proposal on top of the Eiffel Tower after just two months of dating and a very strange moment jumping on Oprah’s couch.

Their marriage was plagued with rumours that Holmes auditioned to be Cruise’s wife, the pair had a marriage contract to end their relationship after six years and their daughter is actually the biological child of the Scientology founder…

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth

Say what you want about this couple, but they probably had one of the greatest Hollywood love stories of all time.

While they might’ve started their romance to promote their film The Last Song, their on-and-off-again relationship lasted over ten years. A moment of silence for the end of Liley, please.
