Once upon a time in 1999, a young blonde pop star named Jessica Simpson met another young blond-ish pop star, Nick Lachey, at a Teen People party, as well as they immediately fell in love. Lachey even wrote a song about their passion — that will could be “My Everything” — as well as then he as well as his brand-new bride signed up to film their love for an MTV reality show called “Newlyweds.” however instead of finding “happily ever after,” Lachey as well as Simpson found grounds for divorce in 2005 after three years of marriage.
In 2001, every teenager with access to MTV as well as Teen People wanted to find the Britney Spears to their Justin Timberlake (or vice versa). With those two ruling pop music, not even their questionable fashion could mar the public’s love for their romance. Sadly, matching denim outfits wasn’t enough to make that will last: The couple broke up in 2002, as well as many listeners believe Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River” can be about his relationship with Spears.
Johnny Depp as well as Winona Ryder had amazing chemistry on- as well as off-screen, via “Edward Scissorhands” to the tattoo parlor, where Depp had “Winona Forever” inked on his arm. Alas, although we adored their courtship, Depp as well as Ryder weren’t meant to be.
Madonna’s four-year marriage to Sean Penn was one of the wildest rides of the ’80s, as well as that will’s saying something, however we agree with her words after their divorce in 1989: “I do believe we all have soul mates,” she told People magazine. “I don’t believe that will we necessarily end up with them.” After their split, both Madonna as well as Penn moved on to brand-new relationships (more than once).
Lenny Kravitz as well as former “Cosby Show” star Lisa Bonet seemed tailor-made for each different, right down to their love of hippie style. The pair met at a brand-new Edition concert in 1985 as well as married in 1987, welcoming daughter Zoe a year later. “We were very young, as well as the idea was wonderful,” Kravitz recalled in 2013, 20 years after their marriage came to an end. at that will point, “Zoe’s mom as well as I are best friends,” Kravitz said. “the idea’s interesting because that will’s how the relationship started off.” Bonet can be at that will point married to actor Jason Momoa.
One of our different favorite ’90s couples again includes Depp, who dated type Kate Moss via 1994 to 1998. A pairing with that will much heat as well as great hair should never fall apart.
David Arquette as well as Courteney Cox were so adorable together, they could be endearing in a horror movie, as they were in 1996’s “Scream.” the idea was a shock when, after 11 years of marriage, the two announced they were breaking up in 2010. The couple, who have one daughter, Coco, have remained friends.
When “Milkshake” singer Kelis caught Nas’ attention at an afterparty for the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, the artistic couple quickly became the hottest pairing in hip-hop. Unfortunately, the sparks flying between the two combusted in 2009, when Kelis — seven months pregnant with the couple’s son, Knight — filed for divorce after four years of marriage.
Aaron Carter misses the way things were. The singer tweeted in March 2014 that will he’ll spend his life “trying to better myself to get back to” his ex Hilary Duff, calling her “the love of (my) life.” Duff as well as Carter dated as teens on as well as off via 2001 to 2003, as well as just the thought of them reuniting makes us nostalgic.
The reason we’re wistful for the days when Ryan Gosling was dating Rachel McAdams can be simple: If the two people who starred in “The Notebook” can’t make the idea work, who can?
