9 Celebrity Engagements We Didn’t See ComingPublished on January 25, 2016. Updated April 3, 2017
In Hollywood, so many things come out of left field – friendships, relationships, engagements and even marriages. Even though we have come to expect the unexpected, celebrities are still always shocking us! Here are 9 celebrity engagements that we just didn’t see coming:
9. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas
When Michael Douglas first hooked up with Catherine Zeta-Jones, he was still married to his first wife, Diandra. So, when they got engaged less than a year after they first started dating, it was shocking because he still wasn’t divorced!
8. Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey
Only a couple months after they started dating, we learned that Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey were already engaged. Nick later revealed that Mariah made him wait until the night of their wedding to have sex, so that explains the quick engagement and marriage!
7. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Tom Crusie and Katie Holmes’ relationship came right out of left field. She had only been broken up with Chris Klein for about five minutes when she jumped into a relationship with Tom. No one even knew how they met! When they announced that they were engaged after just a couple months of dating, it was quite the surprise. Most of us saw the relationship as a publicity stunt.
6. Katy Perry and Russell Brand
Katy Perry and Russell Brand’s relationship came out of nowhere and so did their engagement. The only thing that wasn’t that shocking was when filed for divorce after just 14 months of marriage.
5. FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson
FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson had only been dating for about six months when we heard that they were engaged. The engagement seemed to come out the blue, but this might be because many of us are still hoping he would get back together with Kristen Stewart.
4. Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden
When Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden first started dating, it was hard not think of them as an odd couple. When they quickly got engaged and then rushed down the aisle, we were even more shocked. Everything just felt so rushed!
3. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar had only been dating for less than a month when they got engaged. Even her stepdad Bruce (now Caitlyn) thought they were rushing it, but that didn’t matter to Khloe. A week or so later and she was married. Then, four years later, she filed for divorce.
2. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
The first time that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth got engaged, it was a bit of a shock. She was just 19 and he was only 22. Now that they have recently gotten re-engaged, we are even more shocked. They just got back together late last year and they’re picking up where they left off? Weird.
1. George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin
For years, George Clooney said that he would never marry again – and then he met Amal Alamuddin and quickly changed his tune. These two had only been dating for a hot minute when it was announced that they were engaged and it didn’t take long after that for them to make it down the aisle.
