9 Celebs Whose Relationships Made Them Famous
We’ve got one Kardashian sister left to cover, and that’s Kourt. Fans were a bit confused when Scott started making regular appearances on KUWTK, and we can’t say we blame them. Kourtney is a gorgeous woman and Scott is…well…Scott.
This only proved to be more and more true as their relationship became more serious and they went through a variety of ups and downs as Scott’s shady behavior drove Kourtney and her family mad on several occasions. Now, they have three children together. Unfortunately, however, Scott and Kourtney are no longer together, as Scott’s partying and abuse of alcohol led to Kourtney kicking him to the curb. (Finally, amiright?)
Scott has been in and out of rehab and, on the January 17th episode of Keeping up With the Kardashians, threatened to take his own life while on the phone with Khloe after crying about the loss of Kourtney and his lack of hope for the future. Thankfully the situation de-escalated, but we hope he’s able to get his life together for the sake of his kids. Unfortunately, that likely won’t be a private recovery.
While Selena Gomez was a familiar face on the Disney Channel, she didn’t break away from her Disney roots until she started dating Justin Bieber. Their relationship lasted on and off for years and thrust Selena into the spotlight.
She has since had several incredible opportunities, including performing at the 2015 VS Fashion Show, being part of Taylor Swift’s squad, performing at awards shows, being a classic fashion icon to many and more. Selena was recently in the spotlight for her weight gain, which, as it turns out, was related to her lupus diagnosis and treatment plan that she had kept secret and out of public knowledge since her diagnosis.
If there’s one thing Taylor Swift is known for, it’s her many, MANY relationships. To name a few of her previous flames: Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal, Connor Kennedy, Harry Styles, and current beau, Calvin Harris.
Let’s take note of the fact that these relationships cover the span from 2008 to 2013, which is why it may seem like quite a bit to some. These beaus have made her famous, not for the fact that she dated so many guys, but for the fact she wrote about every single guy she dated upon their breaking up. Here’s hoping this thing with Calvin works out, or he’ll be next on the chopping block.
