Some celebrity couples are made in heaven, making their fans believe in romance, passion and everlasting love even at the highest levels of fame and fortune.

Just not these ones. Like at all.

In celebration of Valentine's Day, many romantic duos will celebrate with flowers, gifts, meals, dates and public displays of affection. Nauseating, but cute.

These couples, on the other hand, are best known for fighting - in the media, in person and/or on TV - and breaking up a lot. Sometimes with police involved.

Hey, when you're a celebrity gossip site, you can't function without the dysfunctional, so at least they bring the entertainment value and then some, right?

Here are 14 truly toxic twosomes that never should've been a thing:

Rihanna and Chris Brown
Rihanna and Chris Brown dated for two decent chunks of time, the first of which ending after he beat her senseless. Never a good sign. Nor was taking him back after that, but she's moved on with Drake ... thank goodness. Good luck, Karrueche!

Amy Winehouse died one year ago today.

And in honor of the sad occasion, her father Mitch has written a tribute to his daughter in The Huffington Post.

"Amy always surrounded herself with music, even during her darkest times," Mitch writes. "Of course, I loved her voice - for me she was the greatest female vocalist of all time - but I also cherish Amy's lyrics."

Just this week, a new track by Winehouse ("No More Jazz N' Blues") surfaced online. Give it a listen above.

Mitch went on to say that he often listens to Amy's debut studio album ("Frank"), but can't bring himself to press Play on "Back to Black" because it reminds him of Amy's marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil and "all of the terrible things he put her through."

Overall?

"Sometimes listening to Amy's music helps me; sometimes it makes me feel more sad," Mitch concludes. "I miss Amy more than I can say. When I've finished writing this I'm going to sit down with a cup of tea and listen to Amy's recording of 'The Nearness of You.'"

Nas' new song featuring the late Amy Winehouse has surfaced.

The track, "Cherry Wine," premiered on BBC's Radio 1 on Tuesday night. Produced by Amy's longtime collaborator Salaam Remi, "Cherry Wine" will appear on the rapper's tenth studio album, Life is Good, which is slated for a July 17 release.

Take a listen below and see what you think ...

Nas and Winehouse previously collaborated on "Like Smoke," which appeared on the British chanteuse's posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures.

Remi said that Winehouse "left something beyond her years. Her body of work will inspire an unborn generation. I'm blessed to be part of that process."

She was found dead at age 27 at her home in Camden in July 2011. Amy Winehouse's cause of death was determined to be severe alcohol poisoning.

The family of Amy Winehouse is selling the home in London's Camden neighborhood where the singer lived, struggled and ultimately died last summer.

"It is with regret that we have to sell Amy's house in Camden Square," her father, Mitch, tweeted today. "It is empty and costing a fortune to secure it."

The property, where Amy lived until her death at home on July 23, 2011, has become a meeting ground for mourners and fans of the "Rehab" singer.

Amy Winehouse Steps Out

"Amy and I both worked on the house and she loved it so much," her father added. "I hope a lovely family buys it as it is so full of love. Mitch."

The three-bedroom house was originally earmarked as the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity set up by her parents.

However, family spokesman Chris Goodman said in a statement that the family staying in the house now was neither practical nor appropriate.

"It was not practical to keep it empty while paying the costs of its upkeep," he said, adding that the family was leaving it "with great regret."

Amy's former home - purchased for $2.79 a few years ago - is currently on the market with an asking price of approximately $4.2 million.

What economic downturn? Maybe it has more cachet now ... although you wonder if everything that happened within those walls is net positive.

The late Amy Winehouse's estate, worth an estimated $4.66 million, will go to her parents in its entirety, as will residuals from any posthumous earnings.

Her ex-hubby, Blake Fielder-Civil, jailed for a burglary committed to pay for his drug habit (which some feel he passed on to Amy), will get nary a cent.

Sucks to be him in so many ways.

Amy Winehouse, Blake Fielder-Civil Cuddle

According to probate documents, because the late diva did not have a will, her dad, Mitch Winehouse, will serve as the administrator of all her assets.

Mitch also heads the newly-created Amy Winehouse Foundation.

The star passed away at age 27 at her London home July 23, 2011. A coroner later determined Amy Winehouse's cause of death was accidental alcohol poisoning.

Amy Winehouse's life had more than its share of controversy. In death, she is no different, as the coroner's inquest into her demise is coming under scrutiny.

British officials are currently investigating the coroner in charge of conducting the singer's medical examination and whether he was unqualified for the job.

There's a chance the investigation into Amy's cause of death could be reopened as a result. Not a strong chance, but a possibility. The reason being?

RIP Amy Winehouse

Coroner Suzanne Greenaway declared Amy Winehouse's cause of death a "misadventure" or unintended consequence of accidental alcohol poisoning.

The judgment was accepted and everything seemed to have been done by the books. However, Greenaway resigned from her job shortly thereafter.

It emerged that she failed to meet the standards required for coroner appointments: she logged just two-and-a-half of the necessary five years required.
