Dennis Rodman and Alicia Douvall
Reportedly, Rodman was one of the loves of Douvall’s life but his reps deny they were ever even together. A beauty queen and a cross dressing basketball player is not one of those classic couples like the cheerleader-ing captain and star football player. Undoubtedly, this is an odd pair to wrap your head around.
Flavor Flav and Brigitte Nielsen
Height differences aside (Flavour Flav at 5’8” and Nielsen at 6’2”) this Strange Love couple met on the set of The Surreal Life, a reality TV show for D-list celebrities, where the two fought constantly. Unfortunately, the fighting didn’t stop for Flav and Nielsen, and when the relationship came to its inevitable end, so did their spinoff series — and any interest we had in either of the two.
Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton
Jolieand Thornton wore vials of each other’s blood around their necks. Need I say more? However, this strange bride and groom also bought matching side-by-side grave plots and only lasted three years as a married pair. With a 20-year age difference and an immeasurable difference in hot-factor between the two it is no surprise that their differences were irresolvable. Their split also made way for Brangelina, the bizarre kid collecting couple.
Britney Spears and Adnan Ghalib
A major part of the hurricane that was crazy-Britney was the celebrity’s relationship with a paparazzo. Similar to dating your stalker, except your stalker is making money off of you, this couple was doomed from the start. He had a photo album full of shots of her and she was a bad custody meeting away from a bald head. After they split there was talk of a sex tape being released but Ghalib never produced the supposed footage.
Mel B (Melanie Brown) and Eddie Murphy
Donkey and Scary Spice were a bizarre couple. No one thought the funny man could bag such a babe, but the pair even got tattoos of each other’s names. Despite saying they were soul mates, Eddie Murphy dumped Brown when she was pregnant with his baby, and has refused to see his daughter or baby mama. So much for fate.
Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher
Closer to the age of her daughter, Kutcher was only 27 when he married the then 42-year old Moore. Rumer Willis even had posters of her new dad on her wall when her parents started dating and has confessed she had crushed on him well before her mother. One word, awkward.
Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter
Bonham Carter is a bit of a mystery all her own, despite looking rather refined and well-mannered, she swears like a sailor and could take most in an arm-wrestling challenge. Burton is, of course, behind such dark films as The Nightmare Before Christmas and Edward Scissorhands. The couple is rumoured to have separate houses that are connected by a hallway so that each can decorate their home to their taste . Of course, the style of each of these unique celebrities speaks to their odd-factor.
Celine Dion and René Angélil
Just seeing a photo of this couple, you would think it was an image of a father beside his daughter. Father Time has claimed the heart of the singer, as her former manager, the line between professional and perverse is blurred when you realize he first heard her demo in 1981 when Dion was only 13 . You can’t help but cringe a little bit knowing he has been involved in her life even before she started high school.
Hillary Duff and Joel Madden
Before Nicole Richie, Joel Madden shacked up with Hillary Duff. Many of us have likely forgotten, but I think this was shortly after her horse teeth veneers and just before she called Richie a skank . Both are pop stars in their own right but the brooding punk image of the Madden twins took its first major hit with this pairing.
Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness
Women drool over Hugh Jackman, whether he’s playing Wolverine in the X-Men series or starring alongside Nicole Kidman in the movie Australia. This is a man in high demand. However, many are surprised when they find out that not only is he married, but that she isn’t anything special. She’s not a model or beauty queen by any stretch, but is rather average. Women everywhere are hoping that this marriage would have the longevity of any other celebrity marriage and end sooner rather then later.
