Hookups we didn’t see coming

HOLLYWOOD and the entertainment world are an infinite source of human drama and amusement. This year certainly did not disappoint where unexpected hook-ups are concerned. Here are the six most talked about hook-ups this year.

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston

Straight out of her 15-month relationship with Calvin Harris, the 26-year-old swiftly rebounded with British actor Tom Hiddleston. The pair were first spotted at the Met Gala in New York City where a video of their dance-off surfaced, just weeks before Swift parted ways with Harris. A whirlwind romance soon blossomed, as the pair were photographed together in Australia and Italy. Swift even flew Hiddleston on a private jet to visit her in Rhode Island. Their intense relationship, which began in June, ended 12 weeks later.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Although rumours were surfacing regarding the Suits actress’ relationship with Prince Harry, it was confirmed in the most unprecedented manner when a palace statement was released following a series of racial abuse and harassment directed at Markle and her family. Markle and the prince met in Toronto through a mutual friend, when the royal was attending the first Invictus Games in May, of which he is a patron. She has since met Prince William and Prince Charles, during her most recent visit to London where she stayed at the Prince’s home in Kensington Palace.

Kristen Stewart and St. Vincent

Twilight actress Kristen Stewart began dating musician St. Vincent, whose real name is Annie Clark, after the latter went separate ways with British model Cara Delevigne. Though their relationship is fairly new, they have taken their romance to the next level with the 34-year-old lending her song-writing talent to Stewart’s first short film Come Swim. Stewart, 26, came out as bisexual in July and previously dated her former assistant Alicia Cargile and Twilight co-star, Robin Pattinson.

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna

You can always count on a Kardashian to up the shock factor when it comes to relationships. Just after 10 weeks of dating, Rob Kardashian popped the question to model and entrepreneur, Blac Chyna. In May, a month after their engagement, the couple announced their pregnancy and welcomed a baby girl named Dream Renee on Nov 10. Chyna once dated rapper Tyga – they have a son together, King Cairo – who is currently dating Rob’s stepsister, Kylie Jenner. Talk about awkward.

Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry

The singer started dating the Pirates of the Caribbean actor right after the Golden Globes in January. At the soiree, Perry and Bloom were photographed chatting to each other and getting super cozy at several after parties, even sharing a vape pen. The loved up pair may never have confirmed their relationship but pictures from their vacation, including that one NSFW photo, say it all.

Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus

Hollywood is known for its on-off relationships and it seems The Voice judge Miley Cyrus and Aussie actor Liam Hemsworth are not spared from this predicament. After calling off their engagement in 2013, the pair rekindled and confirmed their relationship early this year after Cyrus was seen wearing her engagement ring from Hemsworth again. The pair met in 2009 on the set of romantic drama The Last Song.
