Well That Was Random: 11 Celebrity Couples We Didn’t See Coming

random couples


While perusing my usual social media haunts, I came across a post from Fameolous that claims a newly single Evelyn Lozada and French Montana are an item.

They claimed that Lozada spent her birthday at Montana’s house, and even matched the furniture from a picture she shared of her born-day celebration with the furniture from the rapper’s home:

After looking at the post, I wasn’t concerned about whether or not the rumors about Lozada, 42, and Montana, 36, were true. I just couldn’t get over how random those rumors were. And honestly, a lot of pairings that are followed in Black and mainstream media, rumored and 100 percent real, are quite random these days. After you flip through the following 10 other pairs, I think you will agree. But for the record, to say a pairing is “random” doesn’t mean it’s not valid or cared about, or that someone is undeserving of their partner. It just means that we didn’t see it coming from a mile away:

Toni Braxton and Birdman

Jennifer Williams and Tim Norman

Phaedra Parks and Shemar Moore

Now, Moore stated that while he flirted and kissed on Parks during a visit to Watch What Happens Live, they were not a real couple. Whether or not they were, they still chose to act like it (as recently as November), and from the beginning, we were confused.
