Celebrities’ love lives are made public for the whole world to see and to judge. But even though some celebrities are all over the place with their love interests, that doesn’t mean that there is no hope for them. A big celebrity that we all had our doubts about was Jennifer Aniston. From a broken engagement with Tate Donovan to a relationship with Paul Rudd to a failed marriage with Brad Pitt to a brief fling with Paul Sculfor to short relationships with both Vince Vaughn and John Mayer, Aniston has a long list of past unions that simply didn’t work out. Now Aniston has finally found her leading man, Justin Theroux. The two started dating in 2011 and got engaged a year later. So although we thought Jennifer Aniston couldn’t find love, after all these years she has finally found “the one.”
The question is, are celebrities really that much different than us? Or do their love lives just look dysfunctional because they are always in the public eye? Let’s take a look at a few more celebrities who have had trouble finding love and you can decide for yourselves:
Britney Spears become a pop idol sensation during the early 1990′s. She began a relationship with Reg Jones from 1995 but ended it in 1997. She had a brief fling with Jason Geddart in 1997. By 1998 Spears moved on to begin her infamous relationship with Justin Timberlake. Their relationship lasted four years, and then Spears then moved on to her producer and dance choreographer, Wade Robson. They were together from 2001-2002. By 2003, Spears was rumored to be dating Tom Brady, Fred Durst, Nick Carter, Jared Leto, and Columbus Short. 2004 was Spears’ wildest year yet. She got married…twice! First up at the alter was Jason Alexander, who was Spears’ childhood friend. They were hitched during a drunken night in Vegas and annulled the marriage a few days later. Husband number two was Kevin Federline, one of Spears’ background dancers. The two were together for three years and had two kids together. Spears then dated J.R Rotem, Issac Cohen, Howie Day, Criss Angel, and Adnan Ghalib. Spears then found love with Jason Trawik. The two were engaged for three years, but decided to call the wedding off. Lately, Spears has been seen with a new boyfriend named David Lucado, an employee at a law firm.
Taylor Swift may be young, but she already has quite a reputation with the fellas. Swift first began a romantic relationship with Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers in 2008. This relationship didn’t last very long because Swift moved onto her “You Belong With Me” co-star, Lucas Till. By the summer of 2009, Swift switched over to new boy toy, Taylor Lautner. The relationship was over by December of 2009. In 2010, Swift fired up a relationship with John Mayer, which only lasted a few months. Jake Gyllenhaal was Swift’s next victim. They broke up in 2011. Conor Kennedy was the next heartthrob to date Swift. This relationship lasted a few months as well. She went on to One Dirction’s Harry Styles and the two broke up after a while.
John Mayer has quite a long list of love interests. Here is only a handful of the women on Mayer’s list…just to name a few. In 2002 John Mayer was reportedly dating actress Jennifer Love Hewitt. The relationship was short-lived. He then moved on to dating Jessica Simpson in 2006. However, by the next year, Mayer began dating Minka Kelly. That only lasted a few months as well because by the year after that, 2008, Mayer began an on-again off-again relationship with Jennifer Aniston. He was apparently serious about her since he reportedly told Rolling Stones that the breakup “was one of the worst times of my life.” He bounced back pretty quickly since by a little while after the breakup, he began dating Taylor Swift which lasted from 2009-2010. He then moved on to Katy Perry. The two seem to have an on-again off-again relationship going on. Lets see how long this one lasts!
In 1980, Moore was married to Freddy Moore. Their marriage lasted 5 years. In 1985, she became engaged to Emilio Estevez. The two had plans to wed in 1986 but called it off. By 1987, Moore was married to husband number two, Bruce Willis. The two were married for 13 years and had 3 daughters together. They were divorced in 2000. She then began a relationship with Asthon Kutcher who is 16 years younger than her. After dating for two years, Kutcher and Moore were married in September 2005. The marriage lasted a while but the two announced their divorce in 2011. Infidelity was rumored to be the cause of the divorce.
