Bae or Nay? Questionable Couples this Valentine’s Day

Wowcher-Bae-or-Nae (2)


It’s Valentine’s Day on Sunday and love is in the air! From Tinseltown to foggy London Town couples are popping up left, right and centre, and we couldn’t be happier than when we see a blossoming new romance in the glitzy world of showbiz. Take Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, or the recent reunion of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth (aww!). We have to admit, though, that some recent celebrity pairings have left us feeling a bit cold, so here’s our low down of couples that we’re not quite sure about this Valentine’s Day! If you’re single you might count your blessings after you’ve seen the likes of this lot…

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna

We’ve no idea where to begin with this one. A web of relationships gone sour between the Kardashian clan and associated people means this one is a bit of a stinker, but here goes nothing…

To begin with, Chyna’s ex-boyfriend and baby daddy to her three-year-old son is the now the boyfriend of Kylie Jenner, Rob’s 18-year-old sister, and boy have they thrown their fair share of shade at one another over the years. Not to mention the fact that Chyna and Kim were BFFs before Kylie and Tyga happened, swiftly turning that relationship on its head. Following that, Kim’s husband Kanye used to go out with Chyna’s now BFF, Amber Rose, who he reportedly left for Kim and subsequently called a ‘stripper’ who he had to ‘take 30 showers after dating’ – meow! Not to mention the most recent drama surrounding Kanye, Amber and her baby daddy Wiz Khalifa, butt we won’t get into that… Needless to say this relationship has caused a lot of trouble, with Khloe Kardashian kicking Rob out of her house after finding them together. To us it seems like just another episode in the drama, and we’re all on the edge of our seats after that engagement ring cliff-hanger! Do we think this relationship is the real deal? Not likely!

Sam Faiers and Paul Knightley

For years we saw this TOWIE princess get hurt and thrown in the dirt by the likes of Mark Wright, his cousin Elliott and Joey Essex. So it goes without saying that her fans were over the moon to see her strike up a connection with a non-famous lad, enjoying a normal relationship and even starting a family!

Recently though, that perfect happy ending has taken a bit of a bashing as fans took to social media to speak out against the strange behaviour of boyfriend Paul Knightly on ITV show The Baby Diaries. It all began with Paul asking Sam to make him beans on toast as she was in the middle of breastfeeding their new baby, insisting that he’d rather wait for her to make it for him than make it for himself. Did I mention he is twenty-seven? It was also revealed on the show that Paul refused to live with Sam, despite expecting a new arrival, and was very critical of her choice of baby clothes, insisting she took them back – not that he would help her pick any! Viewers commented that he came across as ‘controlling’ and a bit of a ‘man child’, but it didn’t stop there. To round off a strange insight into the couple’s relationship, there was also the question of that kiss with his mum which got viewers really talking. We’re not too sure what side of the fence we sit on with this one…. One thing we do know is that Sam seems super happy, but will they stand the test of time?

Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell

We’ve seen our fair share of showmances in our time – Katie and Peter, Chantelle and Preston, Nikki and Pete – and it’s easy to dismiss such relationships off the bat because of their rocky track record. We’re trying our best to have an open mind with this one, although the odds are already stacked against them!

Entering the Celebrity Big Brother house this winter, ex Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis found herself in a spot of trouble as she clapped eyes on Mr Dublin himself, tattooed model Jeremy McConnell. Despite Davies claiming to be ‘happily in love’ with her boyfriend Sam Reece, a torturous love triangle played out on national television for weeks as she resisted the pull of Jeremy’s Irish charm. But her number was finally up when she admitted to developing feelings for Jeremy (adorable) followed by a string of claims that Sam is much less than the perfect boyfriend she initially made out. The fairy tale looks all set for a happy ending, but in an evil twist of fate, Prince Charming himself got evicted, abandoning his showbiz wife to fend for herself. Shockingly, as she pines over the lover she’d lost to the outside world, Jeremy is less than doting as it’s claimed he was unfaithful while attending a public appearance. None-the-wiser, Steph was crowned runner up and left the house gushing about her wonderful Jez. So the couple lived happily ever after? Well, we soon saw photos, videos and voice clips of the two lovebirds in a bit of a dispute at the CBB wrap party – no doubt about Jeremy’s supposed infidelity. Nevertheless, the relationship continues as the two are seen enjoying a fun day out together, with Stephanie making an appearance on Loose Women to further slang her ex and gush even more about her lovely Jeremy. As much as we would love to believe this couple have it all worked out, with a shaky start like that, we’re certainly not holding our breath!

Final verdict…

So there you have it, our summary of the love stories of three turbulent celebrity couples. Maybe it’s better to stay single after all? Whatever your relationship status, remember Wowcher’s always here to treat you like a princess with incredible discounts on the treats you love. And if it all does go wrong, at least we’ve got Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow to show us that happy endings come in all shapes and sizes – it’s 2016 now, after all!
