Oddball Couples! The Stars You Never Knew Dated!
These stars are just as famous for their dramatic love-lives as they are their career, but we bet you never knew about these weird celebrity hookups. You will never guess which TV star Prince Harry dated or which bad-boy musician Madonna romanced back in the day!
1. Caroline Flack and Prince Harry
Yup, we couldn't believe it either, but TV host Caroline Flack has come out claiming she was once "Prince Harry's bit of rough". The 35-year-old says she dated the 31-year-old Prince before her relationship with One Direction's Harry Styles. Wowza!
2. Madonna and Tupac
Never in a million years would we have put these two together! Rumours that the Queen and of Pop and the hip hop star dated back in the early nineties was widely speculated at the time, but Madge has finally confirmed the rumours in a recent chat with Howard Stern. Recalling her diva behaviour during an interview on the 'Late Late Show' she explained: "I was dating Tupac Shakur at the time and the thing is he got me all riled up on life in general.”
3. Robbie Williams and Cameron Diaz
Robbie apparently found an angel in Cameron Diaz when they were spotted kissing and holding hands on a Santa Monica beach in 2003. One of their dates included some go-karting fun in Germany, how romantic eh?
4. Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock
Ryan Gosling may be ready to start a family with Eva Mendes, but it wasn't that long ago he reportedly left Sandra Bullock heartbroken after meeting her on the set of the movie 'Murder by Numbers'. Despite her being 16 years his senior, the pair dated between 2002–2003 before what was rumoured to be a messy breakup.
5. Cher and Tom Cruise
Now this is sure to be your shocker for the day. Yes, believe it or not, Cher and Tom Cruise were actually a thing. The couple dated back in 1987 and Cher, who is 16 years his senior, even praised Tom as one of her top five lovers before describing the actor as a "loveable guy".
6. Sinitta and Brad Pitt
You may know Sinitta for her pop hit 'So Macho' and numerous (and hilarious) appearances on the 'X Factor', but before she famously began dating Simon Cowell in the 80's, she managed to bag Brad Pitt for two years in 1988. Admittedly, Brad wasn't yet famous or one half of the power couple that is Brangelina, but he was still gorgeous! Speaking of Brad, Sinitta said: "He was beautiful with the most amazing body."
7. Bruno Mars and Rita Ora
Rita's string of romances have been highly publicised but we bet you didn't know that she dated Bruno Mars! Before the two became chart-topping popstars, they began dating in 2009. Speaking on their relationship she said: "It was love at first sight, such a great experience...Our time together was wonderful," Rita said. "But once we got famous, work got in the way. We ended it last year. But we remained close."
8. Justin Timberlake and Fergie
Back in 1996, long before Fergie burst onto the scene as Black Eyed Peas' newest member, these pop lovers were reportedly an item. What's more, 23-year-old Fergie snapped up 16-year-old Justin when he was rising to fame as N*Sync's frontman. Speaking on the romance she said: "Justin and I would go out together and have fun and make out. We went to Hawaii together, but we were never serious. He was Mr. Right Now."
9. Sarah Jessica Parker and Michael J Fox
Sarah Jessica Parker's relationship with 'Mr Big' may have won us over when she starred as Carrie Bradshaw in 'Sex in The City', but before her time on the hit series, she enjoyed a year long relationship with Michael J Fox from 1986 to 1987. Both at the height of their fame, they were probably the Britney and Justin of their day.
