10 Illegal or Barely Legal Celebrity Relationships

Age is just a number, right? Unless you’re discussing an adult’s sexual relationship with someone under the age of 18…. Many celebrities, both past and present, have had relationships with partners under that age, out in the open, sometimes with and sometimes without the blessing of the parents. However, depending on the state where the relationship took place, as well as the law at that time, the relationship may or may not have been legal. Here are 10 illegal or barely legal celebrity relationships. Most of these couples have split- because, can anyone under the age of 18 really end up with anyone they date at that age? Several people on the list have passed away, but strangely, not because the fathers of any of their girlfriends killed them…

The most recent couple on this list is the youngest Kardashian sibling, Kylie Jenner, who is 17 and rapper Tyga, who is 24. The happy couple was spotted partying in France last month, where the age of consent is 15. Kim Kardashian is reportedly non too thrilled about this and has expressed her disapproval by cropping Tyga out of an Instagram photo. She’s also good friends with Blac Chyna, who is Tyga’s baby mama. The public has also spoken out again of the relationship, at least on Twitter.

You’re ugly not just physically but in your soul. Never speak on my son.

9. Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchinson

In 2011, Courtney Stodden married Doug Hutchinson when she was 16 and he was (gasp!) 51. However, as can be imagined, their relationship wasn’t perfect and the couple went on the reality show Couples Therapy on VH1 to try and work things out. According to Dr. Jenn Berman, not everything is as it appears for the couple,

I believe it was the wrong decision to let a 16-year-old marry a man in his 50s. It’s uncomfortable to see… [at first] I said to my producer, ‘I think this guy is a pedophile…I don’t know if I can work with these people.’ I don’t condone it, but I do see that this is a married couple that is genuinely married and they have marital issues that needed to be worked on. I came in saying, ‘She’s a victim, he’s a predator.’ What I found out was that she has a lot more power in this relationship and he is far more powerless than I expected. His family has completely disowned him… He unfortunately has nothing besides her.”

They split two years after they were married, but are currently engaged again.

8. Aaliyah and R. Kelly

The late singer Aaliyah, whose debut album was ironically called Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number, had an illegal marriage with her producer, R. Kelly. On August 31, 1994, the two made it official in a hotel room in Illinois. She was 15 at the time, and he was 27. The marriage certificate listed the bride’s age as 18. The marriage, which was not supported by her parents, was later deemed invalid and annulled. Aaliyah died several years later in a tragic plane crash. Out of respect, R. Kelly has said very little about this relationship with the late star.

7. Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia

It’s not unheard of for co-stars to fall in love, which is exactly what happened to Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia, who started on the show Heroes together. It was rumored that she was 17 and he was 29 when they started dating. Of course, they couldn’t go public until everything was legal. Not surprisingly, the couple eventually split. In 2013, Hayden married Ukrainian boxer, Wladimir Klitschko and is currently pregnant with their child.

6.Paul Walker and Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell

It’s an open secret that the late Paul Walker and his girlfriend, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell started dating when she was 16 and he was 33. She is only 8 years older than Walker’s daughter, Meadow. However, the couple was reportedly seriously in love and had been dating for 7 years at the time of Walker’s passing. Before Jasmine, Walker dated Aubrianna Atwell, who was also 16 when they met. They remained close friends until his death.

Photographer James Lowe, who is 24 years old doesn’t deny his relationship with New Zealand singer, Lorde, whose real name is Ella Yelich-O’Connor. Lorde recently turned 18, but they have been dating since she was 17. He wrote this on his blog,

Currently she is on the opposite side of the world on tour. As much as I miss her, I couldn’t be prouder of what she has achieved so far. If you are lucky enough to attend one of her shows on this current tour, you’ll experience more than just her voice. The production she has dreamt up looks incredible…I can’t wait to see it myself next month.

He also said:

My life is probably a lot different now, but it feels normal on the inside. Jared Leto said that fame doesn’t change you, it changes everyone around you. While I’m not the centre of attention here (and f–k, the times I have, it’s never been fun), I do become aware of the people.

4. Lindsay Lohan and Wilmer Valderrama

Way back in 2004, Lindsay Lohan was only 17 when she started dating actor Wilmer Valderrama, who was 24 at the time. They met when she guest stared on Wilmer’s sitcom, That 70’s Show. The couple never publicly acknowledged the relationship until she was 18 because of legality issues, but Wilmer denied that was the sole reason why. He told People magazine at the Teen Choice Awards that year,

“We try to keep it more under wraps because it is a lot more meaningful that way. At this point, we don’t need all the free press.”

But no worries, they ended it shortly thereafter.

3. Elvis and Priscilla Ann Wagner

The King of Rock, met his queen, Priscilla Ann Wagner, when she was only 14 years old. He was 10 years her senior. Elvis was in the army and stationed in Germany at the time. That wasn’t even the crazy part. Shockingly, Presley was actually dating a younger girl who was already living with him. Elvis and Priscilla married on May 1, 1967, when she was 22 years old at the Aladdin Hotel in Vegas and divorced on October 9, 1973. They had one daughter, Lisa Marie.

2. Jerry Seinfeld and Shoshanna Lonstein

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld met high school senior, Shoshanna Lonstein when she was rollerblading in Central Park, way back in 1994. She was 17 and he was 38. They instantly fell in love and Seinfeld said “This is the only girl I ever went out with who was that young. I wasn’t dating her. We just went to a restaurant, and that was it.” Everyone really liked the couple together, including her family who approved completely of the relationship. Four years later, they called it quits and Lonstein went on to become a very successful clothing and swimwear designer.

Singer Jerry Lee Lewis didn’t simply marry an underage girl, that underage girl; Myra Gale Brown was his cousin! She was only 13 at the time and still believed in Santa Claus. Myra was Lewis’ third cousin twice removed, but the relationship was still taboo. They married on December 12, 1957, just days before his divorce from his second wife was finalized. Shortly after the wedding, Lewis went on a European tour and Lewis told the press his wife was 15. Myra told reporters “You can marry at 10 if you can find a husband.” Alas, their relationship did not last and by 1970, they were divorced.
