Celebrity Relationships That Everyone's Moved On From But Still Live Rent Free In My Head

Do you ever think about a celebrity relationship and come to that moment of "did that actually happen or was I having some kind of fever dream?" or "damn, I forgot about them; I hate that they didn't work out."

Kid Cudi scratching his head

Well, if so, here are some celebrity relationships that we as a society have decided to push from our minds but still continue to live rent free in my head:

1.Cher and Tom Cruise

Yeah, I didn't know the boys that Kelis' milkshake brought to the yard meant Bill Murray. No one could have EVER prepared me for how bizarre we were going to get in 2023. Six-year-old me would have never imagined that 26-year-old me was going to see a ghostbuster and the milkshake lady in the same picture, let alone in a relationship.

Earlier this year, Bill was spotted at not one but TWO music festivals that Kelis was performing at. The two were also seen close backstage AND in photographs together. Unfortunately, just two months after the reported dating, reports came that they had broken up. I still can't believe it.

8. 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler

The fever dreams I mentioned earlier — that's often what happens when I think back to this relationship. Back in 2010, the pair dated for two months after meeting on Chelsea's old talk show, Chelsea Lately. He bought her flowers, went to visit her in New Orleans, and they spent the weekend together.

When the paparazzi pictures started floating around of them on a date in New Orleans, Chelsea took it upon herself to post some hilarious pictures of her laying in bed with 50 Cent and still claiming they weren't dating. Even though they only briefly and casually dated, Chelsea still speaks very fondly of him and even refers to him as "her favorite ex."  Just as recently as May of this year, they've shown support for one another.
