#10: Katy Perry & John Mayer

Although Katy Perry and Russell Brand looked happy during their marriage, it didn’t make it to the two year mark. After it ended, she found companionship with fellow musician and Grammy winner John Mayer. The pair released a song and became one of the red carpet's hottest couples during their on-again, off-again romance. Eventually, the pair called it off for good in 2014. Fortunately, Katy moved on and started a relationship with Orlando Bloom. Mayer still demonstrated how much he missed the relationship. He confessed that his song "Still Feel Like Your Man" was about the "Teenage Dream" singer, proving that he was "Never Really Over" his ex.

#9: Jennifer Aniston & Vince Vaughn

When Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt announced their separation in 2005, the media went wild. After some time passed and headlines died down, Aniston re-entered the dating pool. She ironically started seeing her "The Breakup" co-star. Vince Vaughn. The two took their relationship public in 2006. However, the pair ended things later that year. But they have since had nothing but kind words for each other. In a 2008 interview with "Vogue," the "Friends" actress credits Vaughn with” bringing her back to life." Although it wasn't meant to be, their romance was clearly impactful.

#8: Taylor Swift & Tom Hiddleston

After they were spotted dancing together at the 2016 Met Gala, Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston became Hollywood’s most talked-about couple. They went public with their romance after the singer's surprise split from her ex Calvin Harris. The “Loki” star and the Grammy winner became the instant target of paparazzi and were spotted packing on the PDA wherever they went. But according to sources, the two allegedly disagreed about how public the relationship should be. Their relationship soon ended as abruptly as it started. Three months in, they broke things off and ended their whirlwind romance.

#7: Jake Gyllenhaal & Reese Witherspoon

After a very public divorce from Ryan Phillippe, sparks started flying between Reese Witherspoon and Jake Gyllenhaal. This duo started dating after they met on the set of their film, "Rendition," in 2007. Gyllenhaal and Witherspoon were spotted together everywhere from dining out to hanging courtside at NBA games. They reportedly even took a trip to Coachella together! After three years of apparent bliss, Witherspoon ended the relationship. In the aftermath of the relationship, Gyllenhaal had nothing but good things to say about his ex. The two seemed to still be friends after the split.

#6: Nicole Kidman & Lenny Kravitz

Following her very public uncoupling from Tom Cruise, it’s understandable why Nicole Kidman wanted to keep her next relationship under wraps. Initially, the Academy Award-winning actress kept the fact that she was dating her one time landlord and musician Lenny Kravitz in the early 2000s. But the truth eventually came out years later. Apparently, the two were even engaged at one point. Their once hidden relationship would eventually end and they’d find love with other partners. Thankfully, the two remain on good terms. Kidman even went on to star with her ex’s daughter Zoe Kravitz in HBO's "Big Little Lies."

#5: Miley Cyrus & Kaitlynn Carter

While it looked like the longtime couple of Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus would stay together, their relationship didn’t last. Cyrus then began getting close to Kaitlynn Carter, ex-wife of Brody Jenner. The musician and the reality show star got rumors going after photos of the two of them making out while visiting Europe surfaced. From that point on, they were spotted all around Los Angeles, and things seemed to be getting serious. They were also publicly seen at events like the VMA’s. However, their fling fizzled out a short time later. They bid adieu to each other in the Fall of 2019.

#4: Selena Gomez & The Weeknd

Only a short time after ending his relationship with Bella Hadid, The Weeknd began seeing "Only Murders in the Building" star Selena Gomez. It all started when photographerss snapped pics of the couple packing on some PDA. Before fans knew it, the two musicians were hand in hand and jet-setting around the globe. Although they were very private about their romance, they attended many public outings, including the MET Gala and other notable red carpets. In October 2017, the pair quietly broke things off, and The Weeknd reignited his relationship with Hadid.

#3: Ariana Grande & Pete Davidson

One of the most talked-about couples of the late 2010s, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson took the show biz world by storm. When they met during a taping of "SNL," the songstress and comedian fell head over heels for each other. After Grande and the late Mac Miller ended their relationship, the singer and Davidson drew a lot of attention. From matching tattoos to a quick engagement, fans couldn't get enough of this whirlwind romance. But the tragic loss of Miller and the fast past of the relationship proved too much for the once happy couple. After the two called it off, Davidson has mentioned her in his comedy and Grande referenced her ex in her song "thank u, next".

#2: Alex Rodriguez & Madonna

Although they never officially took their relationship public, Madonna and Alex Rodriguez were once a hot item. In 2008, the former New York Yankees player found himself entangled with the legendary idol. Rumors quickly spread that the two were having a secret affair.
