The most unexpected celebrity couples of recent times
There's been a change in the wind in Hollywood, and celebrities we thought we had figured out are now crossing aesthetics, genres, interests, and generations to surprise us with A-list combinations that sound like they were randomly plucked out of a hat. Some of these unlikely celebrity romances might be a reflection of the completely unpredictable times we're living in, where life and death situations have become fearfully closer, and thus where people are no longer wasting time with preconceived notions and anything other than what makes them feel good. These celebrities are embracing love where they find it, whether that means taking a romantic chance on an old best friend or going on a date with someone completely out of their normal sphere. It's understandable that Selena Gomez had laid low in her romantic endeavors after the media circus of dating Justin Bieber and The Weeknd, but it seems she's back in the saddle and has most recently been linked to Zayn Malik. She and the former One Direction member were spotted out and about walking “hand in hand” and “making out” at a New York City restaurant. Malik bolstered the news as he followed Gomez on Instagram, and he only follows 18 accounts total. It's not such an unexpected match, however, as fans have found a clip back in 2013 where Gomez was asked on the red carpet which member of One Direction she'd most want to kiss, and she replied, "Oh no," then answered quickly, "Zayn." Malik was also later wrapped up in the drama between Gomez and then-boyfriend Justin Bieber as Bieber accused Gomez of cheating on him with Malik. Malik of course was most recently linked with Gigi Hadid, with whom he shares a daughter. Click through to see more of the most unexpected relationships of the past couple years.
