Bey and Jay. JLo and A-Rod. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher. Some celeb couples are so perfect for each other, it's like they came in an off-the-shelf, out-the-box deal from Walmart, the #Upscale aisle.
Speaking of perfectly-matched couples– seriously, what's up with the #Perfect ones who just didn't make it? Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan are divorced. Chris Pratt is newly engaged following his split from Anna Faris. While nobody really thought that Ariana Grande would actually marry Pete Davidson, we did get the world's biggest #Romance. All three couples are now #Over.
Done and dusted it might be for some of Hollywood's most mismatched couples, but a fair few are still proving us wrong. The Kardashians have definitely made some interesting relationship choices. Nobody expects you to actually keep up with the likes of Nicki Minaj or Blac Chyna, but that's what we're here for.
With a fresh new year comes fresh new couples. Halsey and G-Eazy? Old news. She's moved on. So has Kourtney Kardashian. And Nikki Bella. Some couples are #MeantToBe. Others might think they are, but the most they're doing is throwing us major question marks.
It's time for a closer look. Here are 12 celeb mismatched couples of 2019 who are 100% #MeantToBe, along with eight we're still not sure about.
20 #MeantToBe: Kylie & Travis, "I Gotta Propose In A Fire Way"
Kylie and Travis might be ingrained in our minds as a #DuoAct, but let's remember who we're looking at here. The world's biggest girly girl (and arguably the most self-obsessed) is dating the edgiest rapper around.
"I hope the person I'm dating is obsessed with me," Kylie said on the short-lived Life of Kylie. Well, it looks like she got her way.
The highest-profile "mismatched couple" now have a baby approaching her first birthday, plus Travis's Rolling Stone statement: "We'll get married soon," he said. "I just gotta sturdy up– I gotta propose in a fire way."
19 Demi Lovato & Henry Levy: We Aren't Really Feeling It
If anything says "deer in the headlights," it's pics of Demi Lovato right now. Following her major 2018 scare, Demi took the time she needed to heal with professional help, but those facilities don't keep you forever.
After being spotted with designer Henry Levy enjoying some cozy dinner dates, Demi's relationship with Henry was made public via his Instagram – a video clearly showed Demi cozying up to her new beau.
The worst match ever? Definitely not. At the same time though, something about these two doesn't quite click. The relationship is still new, so we'll give them a chance to prove us wrong.
18 Kim & Kanye: Expecting Baby #4, Still Proving Us Wrong
With the news that they're expecting their fourth child via a surrogate, Kim and Kanye are once again front-page news. To be fair though, these two never leave the front page.
"I was in love with her before I was ever able to talk to her,"
Capital Xtra quotes Kanye saying about Kim. The mismatched part? Almost everything about them. Kim loves pinks, makeup and reality TV. Kanye is said to hate pink and find reality TV not living up to his standards, Pop Crush reports.
With a marriage that's been going strong since 2012 and a 2019-due baby due, these two might be mismatched, but they're proving us wrong.
17 Amber Heard & Vito Schnabel: Marching On, But Still #Mismatched
Amber Heard and her boyfriend Vito Schnabel were throwing us #MismatchedVibes from day one. You're looking at an A-List actress and Heidi Klum's ex, here.
This 2018 romance came with the odd rumour of a split, but with The Daily Mail reporting them "[ringing] in the New Year" in the celeb-loved Swiss ski resort of St. Moritz, these two are solidly #BackOn.
Amber previously dated Elon Musk. She also comes with a bit of a #Reputation in the Johnny Depp marriage department. Vito doesn't quite seem her type, but with a relationship status that will hit the one-year mark in May 2019, there's definitely hope.
16 Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev: We're On The Fence, Here
Nikki Bella just has one of those names– you can have no idea who she is, but you've already cottoned on that she's famous. The WWE wrestler and former fiancée to John Cena is now dating her Dancing With The Stars co-star, Artem Chigvintsev. Inquisitr reports:
They're "taking it slow" but are "really into each other." Reality co-stars not making it? We've seen it before, right?
While the dancing part makes sense, it's the swift move on from Nikki's six-year relationship with John that makes us a touch uneasy. Looking at them? Well, you make your mind up.
15 Khloe & Tristan: Miss "Wants To Settle Down," But What About Him?
It's like we literally can't keep up. In 2018, Khloe Kardashian was documenting her growing bump via selfie videos on KUWTK. Then the bomb dropped. The Daily Mail's video footage of Tristan Thomspon with another woman turned this poor girl's world upside down– Kim even called the situation "[messed up]" on The Ellen Show, as Cosmopolitan reports.
Now? Khloe reportedly wants "another baby" with Tristan, Pop Culture reports. Khloe herself seems to want True to have a sibling, as the website states.
While basketball players and Kardashians aren't mismatched (Khloe was, after all, married to Lamar Odom), the settling down vibe isn't what we're getting from Tristan.
14 Channing Tatum & Jessie J: Is Looking Like The Ex-Wife The Best Sign?
Channing and Jenna's 2018 divorce probably sold more boxes of tissues than Kleenex factories could keep up with. Their nine-year marriage seemed to end amicably, but Channing moved on fast.
Jessie J is the British pop sensation who seems to have swept Channing off his feet. The one thing we can't help but notice? Just how much Jessie looks like Channing's ex, Jenna.
Channing "does not plan to propose" was December 2018's headline from Inquisitr. Is that because the relationship is too new (or is he also vibing on the #Mismatched side)?
13 Nicki Minaj & Kenneth Petty: Starts Out By Defending Him, #RedFlag?
Nicki Minaj isn't one to be pushed around. The self-proclaimed "Queen" is as brazen with her lyrics as she is with those custom Versace outfits, but something's amiss with her relationship status.
Nicki's new man is Kenneth Petty. The relationship got off to an awkward start in December 2018, as Nicki took to social media to "defend" her new man. Kenneth has a somewhat controversial past that includes notable run-ins with the law.
"Ya'll can't run my life," MSN reports Nicki saying. "Oh they wanna talk? Let's give them something to talk about." Well, you succeeded there, Nicki. We're talking. But we're also kind of shaking our heads.
12 Cameron Diaz & Benji Madden: #Mistmatched But #Married
Cameron Diaz has definitely changed. The blue-eyed Hollywood babe who once came with polished blonde locks, mini-dresses and party vibes is now in her mid-40s. She's also married to Benji Madden, the rocker who seems to have made her happy.
How to tell if a guy is a little mismatched? Easy. You check out the girl's previous guys. Huff Post reports Cameron's exes to include Justin Timberlake, Matt Dillon, Alex Rodriguez, and model, Paul Sculfor.
Aside from Jared Leto, all of Cameron's exes came with a somewhat squeaky-clean, all-American vibe.
Benji is the good-hearted rocker who didn't seem a match to begin with, but they're married now.
11 ScarJo & Colin Jost: For A Girl Who "Doesn't Believe In Monogamy..."
When a 34-year-old actress has two divorces under her belt and some of the most outspoken quotes around, we're going to question her relationships. Scarlett Johansson might be dating Colin Jost, but her Playboy interview hasn't been forgotten, as Self reports her saying:
"I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it's a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing. I don't think it's natural to be a monogamous person."
Well, she said it. ScarJo and Colin are solid enough to be making red carpet appearances, but is this wholesome-looking guy ready for ScarJo's progressive philosophies?
10 Kourtney Kardashian & Luka Sabbat: We're Just Not Understanding This Relationship
Kourtney Kardashian was already raising eyebrows with Younes Bendjima– this Tunisian model was 24 years old when he started dating Kourtney in 2016. Following some rumors, as Daily Mail reports, Kourt broke off the relationship in 2018.
Kourt's new guy? At 21 years old, Luka Sabbat is even younger than Younes. Kourtney will turn 40 in 2019.
While an age gap means nothing these days, it's more the succession of young guys that leaves us a touch #Concerned.
Just Jared reports that Kourtney and Luka are "not exclusive." The dinner date pics are definitely suggesting something along the lines of a relationship. The right match for Kourt? Possibly not.
9 Kris Jenner & Corey Gamble: Proving A 29-Year Age Gap Can Work
It's the ultimate #GoodFeeling. Kris Jenner has been through her fair share of hurting. Her first husband, Robert Kardashian, lost his battle against cancer. Her second husband, Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner brought happiness, but it didn't last.
At the age of 63, Kris has been dating 38-year-old Corey Gamble since 2014, Cosmo reports. We see Corey on KUWTK, on Kris's Instagram, but most importantly, in candid shots like these that show a truly happy couple.
Kris has called Corey her "ride or die," as per her birthday Instagram message to Corey in 2018. The age gap might be there, but these two couldn't care less.
8 Leah Messer & Jason Jordan: Already Been Through #Splitsville
When you're a Teen Mom, your serious relationships start early by default. Leah Messer is the Teen Mom OG star whose relationships, engagements and baby daddy dramas date back over 10 years.
16 and Pregnant gave us Leah and Corey Simms. They had twins and were engaged for six months, but that was all history from 2011 onwards.
After Corey and Jeremy Calvert, Leah seems to have found happiness with a significantly older man, Jason Jordan. He isn't her normal type. They've also had a major split, Pop Culture reports. Back together? Yes. Made for each other? We're less certain.
7 Blac Chyna & Kid Buu: Well, At Least Their Hair Matches
Blac Chyna is a smart woman who knows what she wants (and generally gets it). Her high-profile baby daddies are now her exes, though– that's Tyga and Rob Kardashian. In December 2018, Chyna's new guy became rapper Kid Buu.
Kid Buu is Blac Chyna's "new boo." Just remember the drama this girl trawled Rob Kardashian through, though. Buu might come with matching hair, but these two are throwing us major #Mismatched vibes.
Their ages match. Their pink hair matches. You don't need to be a relationship guru to know that a real bond takes more than that. "LookN like a snack," Buu captioned a pic of them together. We're thinking more snack than meal, here...
6 Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton: Mismatched, But #MeantToBe
Calling the platinum-blonde, red-lipsticked grunge pop star and her all-country, cowboy hat-donning boyfriend. Yup, it's Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton.
These two are so #MeantToBe, even Ellen thinks they're engaged.
With a relationship that's been going strong since 2015 (and Gwen approaching 50), everyone's wondering when this guy is gonna propose. "Not engaged" was Gwen's statement on The Ellen Show in 2018, as Refinery29 reports. Still, Ellen spun her question another way, and Gwen eventually said: "I don't know" about when they'd get married. Grunge pop and dusty cowboy can totally work.
5 Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom: She's Convinced "Opposites Attract"
Something about Orlando Bloom's eyes here say: "Smitten." Then again, this guy does have a teeny tiny #Player reputation. Whether it's lust or love, we don't know. After some time apart, Katy Perry and Orlando seem to be giving their romance another go.
Bear in mind that Orlando reportedly split with Katy in 2016 because he was "not ready to get married and have babies," Cosmo reports.
As to them being mismatched, don't take it from us– take it from Katy, who has said that "opposites attract," Billboard reports. We're seeing a #Maybe, but definitely not a #MeantToBe (yet).
4 Kendall Jenner & Ben Simmons: Still Throwing Us Question Marks
Kendall Jenner is very open when she wants to be. That Instagram account comes with a #ClothingOptional, although credit where it's due, Kendall is now Forbes's highest-paid supermodel. That lithe frame earned $22 million in 2017, as The Daily Mail reports.
Kendall's name made some dating headlines with both Ben Simmons and Anwar Hadid in 2018 – kind of at the same time, Elle reports. As the months passed though, Ben was spotted with Kendall more often.
"Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons flirt on Instagram and it's not subtle,"
Harper's Bazaar reported. The heat might be on, but are these two baking easy cupcakes or wholesome pies?
3 Scott Disick & Sofia Richie: The Man Grew Up, Possibly #MeantToBe
Scott Disick is a face we're used to seeing hanging around Kourtney Kardashian's digs. When it comes to Scott and Sofia Richie though, the headlines are raging. Radar Online reports that Sofia "plans on getting pregnant." Celebrity Insider reports:
"Kourtney Kardashian [is] scared Scott Disick will propose to Sofia."
Wherever these two are going, it looks like it's somewhere serious. The former player and 20-year-younger model don't come with a #HollywoodMatch, but they're proving that oddballs can 100% make it.
2 Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban: Pushed Past The Height Difference
When a Hollywood A-Lister winds up with an Indie singer-songwriter, the world gets to call #Mismatched. Despite their notable height difference, Nicole and Keith have now been married over ten years.
Of course, this is where we can't help but notice that Nicole seems to have a thing for shorter guys. Tom Cruise might come with a #OldSchool, but Nicole was towering over him too (once upon a time).
Footwear News reports that Nicole and Keith keep their heads together on the red carpet as one of their "tricks" to battling their height difference. Honestly, nobody cares. When a couple is clearly in love and #MakingIt, the tiny details of who's taller start to sound petty.
1 Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas: More Than Pushed Past The Age Difference
You might take one look at these two and think: "What on earth about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas is remotely mismatched?" Now that Priyanka and Nick are married, the answer seems to be "nothing."
Remember, though, that Priyanka is 11 years older than Nick. That definitely raised a few eyebrows when they first started dating. With a 2018 wedding that was beyond #Goals though, everyone's forgotten that the new Mr. and Mrs. Jonas come with an age gap.
