Alright, what is going on here?! Although Katy Perry and John Mayer are reportedly “broken up,” the on-again off-again couple was spotted together on Monday night at the Friars Foundation gala, where they were seen looking “very much in love.” They even left the event holding hands!
This appearance comes two months after the couple reportedly split (for the second time), although this is only the first of several times they’ve been seen together since the breakup. The first sighting was back on Memorial Day, when John joined Katy at her Hollywood home for a barbecue.
Things got even more confusing, though, when Katy’s interview with Vogue came out last week. At the time of the interview, Katy and John were clearly broken up, and she speaks pretty candidly about how things went wrong. Guess that didn’t last too long!
So, clearly, Katy and John are one of the most confusing, current couples in Hollywood — but they’re not the only ones. Here’s four more famous duos whose relationships we just can’t quite figure out…
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth were happily in love when they got engaged about a year ago. We know this because they attended red carpet events side-by-side, and Miley just couldn’t help but post photos of her and her man on Twitter.
As time has gone on, though, we’ve been seeing less and less of Miley and Liam together, and breakup rumors have been plaguing the couple since March. Suddenly, Miley is super-private about her personal life, though, and it’s been difficult to get a straight answer out of either of these two about where they stand. For a while, the only “proof” we had was that Miley was still sporting her engagement ring (for the most part). However, the media mostly chalked this up to her not being able to let go of her man.
Finally, Miley and Liam gave us somewhat of an answer when they were photographed on a date night together last week, but this was the first time they were pictured together in FIVE months. So, perhaps it actually was a reconciliation? We’ll probably never know, but as of now, it looks like these two are ON!
After Kristen Stewart cheated on Robert Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders last summer, there was a brief period of time where we didn’t know where Rob stood. Just in time for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 promo in the fall, though, these two were definitely ON.
Considering Rob and Kristen are a mostly private couple, we didn’t hear about much drama regarding their love life until last month, when Rob was photographed moving his things out of Kristen’s house. Uh-oh. Since then, they’ve been spotted out separately on several different occasions, and Rob even held a party over the weekend that Kristen did NOT attend, so this breakup seems pretty set in stone, right?
Well, yeah…except for the fact that they were also reportedly seen holding hands amidst all of this mess a couple of weeks ago. So although, as far as we know, Rob and Kristen are still broken up right now, let’s not consider them completely out for the count as a couple!
Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence started dating in Summer 2010 after meeting on the set of X-Men: First Class, and they managed to remain a super low-key, drama-free couple during the beginning of their relationship…when they were both fairly unknown. Then, Jennifer was cast as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games and gave an Academy Award-winning performance in Silver Linings Playbook.
Needless to say, 2012 and 2013 were huge years for Jennifer, and her instant rise to fame seemed to have taken its toll on the couple. They broke up in January 2013, leaving Jennifer totally single during awards season.
However, after all that wrapped up, the duo was back on set together filming the sequel to X-Men, but it was their time spent OFF set together that got the media talking. Over the last two months, the couple was seen together off set several times, and Nicholas even joined Jen on a family outing with her brother! Sources say they’re just friends, but it looks like this could turn back into something more.
The fact that Rihanna even gave Chris Brown the time of day after he physically assaulted her at the Grammys in 2009 is still baffling to most folks. Well, she took it several steps further than just being civil with her ex by actually starting to DATE him in 2012.
These two were confusing from the start of their reconciliation, because while we saw them photographed together several times, Chris was reportedly still dating Karrueche Tran. Eventually he split with Karrueche for RiRi, and the two seemed pretty happy. That is…until we’d randomly see Chris pictured with his ex while he was supposed to be dating Rihanna.
Chris and Rihanna are totally dunzo now, but this will forever be one of the most confusing love triangles in Hollywood. And, hey, don’t think Chris isn’t still confusing us — we’ve seen him with Karrueche a few times lately, but are they dating officially? Who knows…
