10 Celebrity Couples That Still Make Us Wonder

The Kardashian family member to take over our celebrity-related headlines this week is Rob Kardashian, now romantically linked to half-sister Kylie Jenner’s current boyfriend’s ex-fiancee (and baby mama) Blac Chyna. Given this much chronicled odd romance (see it broken down right here), we got to thinking: What other celebrity couples truly confused us in the past?

Cher and Tom Cruise

The singer and the actor dated back in the mid-1980s, but the fling was a memorable one. Back in 2013, Cher (16 years older than Cruise) mentioned the actor as part of the “top five” list of her lovers during an episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
