Celeb Couples That Made You Stop And Say, "Wait, WTF?"

Sometimes, when walking down the street and seeing a duo holding hands, you do a double-take. Of course, it’s what’s on the inside that matters, but there’s something about seeing a Birkenstock-wearing boho indie chick arm-in-arm with a guy in khakis and a Patagonia vest that just feels weird. Celebrities are no different. Every once in a while, a weird celebrity couple comes along that has you questioning everything you’ve ever known. Selena Gomez recently confirmed her relationship with Benny Blanco (super random), and Jewel and Kevin Costner had a full PDA moment. I mean, that wasn’t on my BINGO card. (Cool Gen Z girls would roll their eyes at me, but what else am I supposed to say???) Below are other totally random celeb couples we all need to accept, I guess.

On Dec. 8, photos of Jewel and Kevin cuddling in the Caribbean surfaced. As one source put it, “There was definitely something going on. They were flirty, and when they were together, it was like they both just lit up.”

They briefly dated in 2011. Chelsea says 50 is her “favorite ex.” In 2023, she said, “My friends loved hanging out with him. I loved hanging out with him. It was a pretty short-lived romance, it was only two months. But yeah, I mean, If I saw him I’d definitely have a drink with him.”
