Some celebrity relationships seem fishy from the very start, and when certain things happen, such as super-quick breakups and 72-hour marriages, it’s clear the relationships were never real to begin with. Many celeb romances have been rumoured to be publicity stunts, to boost one or both parties further into the spotlight. And some of those duos just seem much too random and forced to believe they could ever be true.
Take the Katy Perry and Riff Raff relationship stunt – that one was one for the books. The rapper claimed he was dating Perry and when the two showed up together at the 2014 MTV awards, rumours started to swirl. But did anyone actually believe that they were a real couple? It was way to random, and he’s a little out there, even for her. And the Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphrey’s marriage that lasted 72 hours seemed off from the start. When the quicky divorce happened, Kris said that it was all a publicity stunt for the family to boost their popularity, which doesn’t seem too far-fetched.
And were Rita Ora and Rob Kardashian ever really together? It seems the two of them didn’t even know. He accused her of cheating on him, but she claimed they were never officially in relationship to begin with. So what gives? Harry Styles has had his share of fake relationships. The first was with Taylor Swift. Their “romance” only lasted a few months, but benefitted both of the stars. Her relationships and breakups always get tons of media attention, which is great for him, and she has released at least two popular singles that are thought to be about the One Direction heartthrob. And then there was his short-lived relationship with Kylie Jenner, which is also rumored to also be fake. Unsurprisingly her mom may have been behind the whole thing.
When relationships last only a couple of weeks it’s hard to believe they’re actually real. Henry Cavill and Kaley Cuoco “dated” for about two weeks before they called it quits. They worked for the same PR agency and many thought that their relationship was a scam to get him further into the spotlight. She was making it big on The Big Bang Theory, so it wouldn’t be out of the question. And any marriage that happens drunkenly in Vegas and ends 55 hours later can’t be a loving relationship. From celebrities who were clearly together for publicity, to ones who were rumored to be covering something up, today’s video looks at 10 fake relationships of famous people.
