It's impossible to tell who is going to end up hooking up with who in the world of the rich and famous. The truth is that even though all of these stars have all the fame and riches they could ever want, a lot of them are also just lonely and looking for genuine companionship. That's a basic human need, and nobody can fault them for that. In the following article, we take a look at 12 celeb couples of this past year that we didn't think had any chance of happening. Some of these relationships are still going strong, and others were just quick, passionate flings. Check them out below ...
12 Miley Cyrus & Patrick Schwarzenegger
21-yr-old Patrick Schwarzenegger was really starting to emerge on the scene for his work as a young actor and model. But more recently, he has become a staple in tabloids and gossip sites for his budding romance with Miley Cyrus. We can’t imagine that his parents Maria Shriver and "The Arnold" are happy about this union. Either way you look at it, Miley Cyrus seems to be going through something at this point in time, and that may turnout to be a bad influence on Patrick. Another way of looking at it is that they are both in their early 20’s having fun and enjoying life. So why not? Let the good times roll!
11 Prince & Delilah
Legendary music artist Prince is known to be a recluse, but he definitely loves having the companionship of a beautiful woman. In the past, the 56-yr-old singer has been linked to major female stars like Kim Basinger, Madonna and Carmen Electra. At the beginning of the year, he started dating a young 23-yr-old British singer called Delilah who he’s been touring with. He’s over 30 years older than her and he first got smitten when he saw her on YouTube. He even brought her along when he performed on Saturday Night Live earlier this year. He’s been to known to marry the women he truly loves, so we’ll see how far this one goes.
10 Birdman & Keyshia Cole
When it comes to feisty ladies on the R&B scene, the top three would probably be Tamar Braxton, K. Michelle and Keyshia Cole. Cole is especially known for the public arguments she’s had back and forth with Queen Beyoncé. She also has a tendency for picking the wrong men to enter into relationships with. Some years back, she used to go with gangster rapper Young Jeezy and she’s also reportedly had a fling with Diddy. This year, she decided to start dating Bryan “Baby” Williams of Cash Money Records. She was almost put in a jail when she got physical with a woman she thought Baby was cheating on her with. This is one celeb who perhaps just needs to be alone for a while.
9 Michael Sheen & Sarah Silverman
Welsh actor Michael Sheen might just be the most unassuming Hollywood stud that you’ve never heard about. Some of the beautiful women he’s dated in the past include Kate Beckinsale, with whom he has a daughter. And for a while, he was also linked to the lovely Canadian actress Rachel McAdams. This year he started seeing the provocative comedian Sarah Silverman. For those of you who don’t know, Silverman’s most popular ex is the late night talk show star Jimmy Kimmel. Upon first glance, these two look like an odd couple, but love definitely has its own language.
8 Kat Dennings & Josh Groban
7 Rob Pattinson & FKA Twigs
Something we’ve been seeing more and more in Hollywood is actors hooking up with musicians. Perhaps the reason for this ongoing trend is that secretly musicians want to be actors and conversely, actors want to be singers. This year Rob Pattinson, the young star who used to date Kristen Stewart started dating the British eclectic singer FKA Twigs. They both look so happy and free together, and it was truly sad to see the negative racial remarks that were made on social media about their relationship. Why can’t people just be happy when other people are happy?
6 Zac Efron & Michelle Rodriguez
There is no way anyone saw this one coming. For two months earlier this year, the 27-yr-old Hollywood heartthrob Efron and the 36-yr-old Rodriguez were hot and heavy for everyone to see. They were spotted vacationing in Ibiza and Sardinia and it really looked like they were enjoying each other’s company. It was even more shocking because most people thought that Rodriguez was a lesbian – because she was previously involved with super model Cara Delevingne. They had their fun, now it’s over and both of them have moved on.
5 Kelly Osbourne & Quincy Combs
Sometimes the craziest moments happen in celeb relationships. For example, in what universe would you expect the daughter of Ozzy Osbourne to be hooking up with the step son of Sean “Puffy” Combs? But that’s what transpired this past summer when Instagram shots were popping up of Kelly Osbourne and Quincy Combs looking very cozy together. Kelly is almost 7 years older than Quincy so she was definitely robbing the cradle a little bit with this one. It was apparently a quick summer fling because she soon moved on to a bearded British model called Ricki Hall.
4 Katy Perry & Diplo
3 Justin Bieber & Adriana Lima
2014 has been one of the major years that we have seen the growing pains of young pop star Justin Bieber. He’s now at the age of 20, and his bumpy transition from a boy to a man is being played out for all of us to see. One surprising hook-up he had this year was with 33-yr-old stunning Brazilian model and mother of two, Adriana Lima. This alleged hook-up happened on a yacht party in Cannes earlier this year. She’s 13 years his senior but it seems the setting was right and they found themselves in each other’s arms for the evening. If this one lasted more than one night and they had kids, their offspring would be absolutely gorgeous.
2 Naomi Cambell & Michael Fassbender
1 Evan Rachel Wood & Katherine Moennig
Actress Evan Rachel Wood officially came out as a lesbian in 2011 and she proved that to the world by dating actress Katherine Moennig for a couple of months this year. Wood has a young son with her ex-husband Jamie Bell and she has also dated goth rocker Marilyn Manson in the past. Her relationship with Moennig escalated really quickly and they were often seen together showing lots of PDA. Wood also happens to be nine years younger than Moennig. But it looks like it ended just as quickly as it started and in November, Wood sent out a simple tweet that simply stated “…it hurts.”
