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:

14 Toxic Couples We Can't Believe Were a Thing
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!

Rihanna and Chris Brown

1. 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 and Blake Fielder-Civil

2. Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil

Perhaps the most lethal of any love we've ever seen, Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil abused drugs so fervently that she could never recover from that viscious cycle, passing away at age 27. He, meanwhile, ended up locked up for a long time.


Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva

3. Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva

Mel Gibson and Oksana Grigorieva weren't together long, and for good reason. These two went nuclear on each other ... well mostly him on her voicemail.


Jessica Simpson and John Mayer

4. Jessica Simpson and John Mayer

Jessica Simpson and John Mayer equals sexual napalm. That's never healthy. Only sexual.


Ronnie Magro-Ortiz and Sammi Giancola

5. Ronnie Magro-Ortiz and Sammi Giancola

Ronnie and Sammi from Jersey Shore. These two need no introduction. Just clips of them brawling. Of which there are plenty.


Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

6. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez had a long love affair that involved him taking her virginity and a whole lot of partying and frequent breakups, fights and general emotional turmoil. It's possible it wasn't meant to be. And by possible we mean obvious.


Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley

7. Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley

Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley of Teen Mom fame were fighting more often than not. Often, things even got physical between the on-off couple, and it was scary.


Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler

8. Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler

Lauren Conrad and Jason Wahler break up on The Hills. It was a frequent sight. Very frequent.


Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi

9. Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi

The Bachelor couples rarely stand the test of time, but Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi were doomed from the start. Reliver their amazing public breakup and you will see why.


Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers

10. Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers

Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers, who are still technically married, were only together as a couple for a few months ... during which she aborted his baby and both were arrested for heroin possession and assault. They also feuded on Twitter a lot - even by her standards. Not healthy.


Britney Spears and Kevin Federline

11. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline were married two years and had sex at least that many times, as evidenced by their two sons. How in the world did these two ever get married? Okay, we can grasp why K-Fed married her (see photo). Just not the reverse ...


Kim Kardashian and Ray J

12. Kim Kardashian and Ray J

Ray J hit it first, and he filmed it. The XXX-rated Kim Kardashian marked the end of the duo's relationship, though it catapulted her to fame, making it a net positive, we suppose. Ray then relased a song CALLED "I Hit it First," which is just hilarious.


Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas

13. Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas

Taylor Swift has had a lot of boyfriends and a lot of breakups. Joe Jonas is the only one to dispatch her via voicemail, however.


Farrah Abraham and James Deen

14. Farrah Abraham and James Deen

Okay, it was a fake relationship that she tried to pretend led to a leaked sex tape that was actually just a porno. But still, Farrah Abraham and James Deen simply DID NOT WORK as a couple.


Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston

15. Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston

There are no words.

Dreams do come true. At least 10-20 percent of the time.

Fans know that a final rose does not guarantee a lifetime of happiness, but The Bachelor has produced some couples that have stood the test of time. At least lately.

And with Juan Pablo Galavis' season in full swing, ABC caught us up on some of its recent success stories as part of its "Juan-uary" series of Sunday specials.

Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are set to tie the knot next weekend. They were one of the duos featured on The Bachelor: Bachelor Love Stories last night.

The others:

Emily Maynard and Jef Holm

8. Emily Maynard and Jef Holm

These two lasted about four minutes.


Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell

14. Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell

Juan Pablo's now-infamous non-proposal made him persona non grata for many fans, but he and winner Nikki Ferrell are still together and - gasp - happy.


  • Trista Rehn married fireman Ryan Sutter in a ceremony that was televised in 2003. Still the gold standard for the show, over a decade later.
  • Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried. The most recent Bachelorette picked Chris at the end of Season 9 last year. They're still engaged.
  • Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum. After she chose J.P. on The Bachelorette Season 7 finale, Ashley married J.P. in December 2012.
  • Molly and Jason Mesnick. Jason was engaged to Melissa Rycroft, but dumped her for runner-up (and now-wife) Molly on the After the Final Rose special. Close enough.

Will Juan Pablo end up in the success or failure column? The Bachelor spoilers shed some light on that if you're interested ... but the odds are not good.

That's like five success stories in like 27 seasons. Just saying.

Jake Pavelka, who once wooed Gia Allemand on The Bachelor, had to pull his car over to the side of the road when he learned his former fling had died.

He said he could not stop crying when he heard the shocking news.

Allemand, who was taken off life support Wednesday after an apparent suicide attempt, was "an angel," he says, adding, "I am in complete shock."

Jake Pavelka is "devastated" at the loss of "one of the sweetest people I have ever known and a very dear friend. My heart goes out to her family."

"We have lost an angel today."

Kristin Chenoweth is apparently dating Jake Pavelka of The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad and Dancing With the Stars fame for whatever reason.

Seriously, there's a photo of them on a date near his home in Texas.

The "couple" were seen getting cozy at a diner in West Hollywood earlier this fall. That was one thing. Lunch at a cafe in Highland Village, Texas? Another.

Jake Pavelka has scored a gig with Chippendales in Las Vegas.

Somehow we're not altogether surprised.

The reality-TV staple signed on as a celebrity guest host to help Chippendales celebrate its 10-year anniversary in Las Vegas' Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.

Shirtless Jake Pavelka

The gig will last from Feb. 23 to March 18 and give Jake Pavelka, according to a press release, a chance to "use his charm, sex appeal and hosting skills to keep the women entertained while leaving the dancing to the men of Chippendales."

Mmm hmm.

Jake, for those unaware, was a contestant on The Bachelorette, then the star of The Bachelor, then appeared in DWTS, Bachelor Pad and Vienna Girardi.

Former Bachelorette, Bachelor and Bachelor Pad star Jake Pavelka has a new girlfriend, an aspiring model and contestant on CMT's Sweet Home Alabama.

Doesn't sound at all like the kind of person who would date an attention-starved douchebag reality star, does it? No, definitely not.

Dapper Jake Pavelka

Sources tell Us Weekly that Pavelka - the former Bachelor champion who famously fought with temporary fiancee Vienna Girardi, seriously you must watch this clip - is now dating Ashley Ann Vickers, who he met while filming the CW series H8R.

Of course he did.

"It's pretty new," the insider says, though serious enough that the pair spent this weekend in Hawaii.

Vickers hails from the south and is a former Miss USA pageant contestants. She has also modeled for Maxim and is a graduate of the University of Central Florida.

On the season finale of Bachelor Pad, old wounds were reopened, a romantic bombshell was dropped, and a STAGGERING prize of $250,000 was awarded.

There were tears shed. There were some extremely awkward moments.

By the end, two couples from The Bachelor and Bachelorette were left standing. Read about it all below in THG's official +/- Bachelor Pad finale recap:

Jake, Vienna and Kasey

"I'm trying to act strong, 'cause I don't want Michelle to worry, but I am literally pissing down my leg." - Graham on the set of Cirque du Soleil. Literally. Plus 5.

Kasey and Vienna, of course, guaranteed they'd win this task and earn a spot in the finals. And, of course, they failed to do so. And, of course, she wept. Minus 6.

Mike and Holly took home the #1 spot thanks in no small part to his performing arts / dance background, but hey, guy needed a bone thrown his way, so Plus 8.

The judges - Jason Mesnick, Ali Fedotowsky and Trista Sutter - eliminated Ella and Kirk. Boo, but seeing those three was kind of fun, so that's kind of a Wash.

What the heck happened at the end of this week's Bachelor Pad episode?

The last rose came down to Jake Pavelka - who ominously vowed that if he was going home, he was going to take as many people as he could out with him - and Kasey Kahl.

The music built to a crescendo and then ... the credits rolled.

Chris Harrison said "Kasey," but that was it. Presumably he's getting a rose? It's all unclear. The host-pimp says next week, "it will all make sense." Either way, it was odd:

Is there a chance Jake Pavelka actually sticks around? Or did the show decide to edit it this way simply to spread Jake's epic meltdown upon being voted off?

We'll find out next Monday night, obviously. But until then ...

Whose side are you on in this Bachelor Pad battle?

Last night on Bachelor Pad, Melissa went insane, Jake's feud with Kasey escalated, Bret Michaels showed up, and there was synchronized swimming involved.

Just another eventful night on ABC's guilty pleasure spinoff hit.

By the end, it was Jake Pavelka and Kasey Kahl on the block again, with a weird ending that would have people talking if the format actually mattered.

Read about it below in THG's official +/- Bachelor Pad recap:

Not In Sync

Blake, on Melissa: "She's like a live wire that's flailing around on the ground ready to zap somebody, and I'm covered in water." Plus 4 for that metaphor.

Speaking of water, the challenge is synchronized swimming! If you thought the girls would have a big edge here, boy did you think wrong. Minus 5.

Obligatory Minus 2 for Erica's attempt at "swimming."

Despite not playing to his self-proclaimed strengths - mental durability, physical strength and problem solving - Jake is the star ballerina! Plus 9.

Michael wins the rose, however, resulting in another boring, sappy date with Holly. Minus only 1, though, because at least this wasn't scripted.

You wouldn't imagine Bachelor Pad would make you tear up at the end (from genuine emotion, not laughter) but there's a first time for everything.

The season's second episode featured the usual fare - drama, boring dates, people taking things way too seriously - but also a truly romantic moment.

By the end, Jake Pavelka vs. Vienna Girardi and Kasey Kahl felt more like a sideshow. You can thank Ames Brown and Jackie Gordon for that.

Read all about it below in THG's official +/- recap:

Bachelor Pad Bikini Babes

The challenge this week: "Target on Your Back." Rules: Idiots line up, blindfolded, and have eggs winged at them based on questions. Plus 6.

Jake bears the brunt of the ladies' chicken embryos, but takes it in stride. When Erica gets hit with nearly EVERY egg, though? Harsh. Minus 9.

Why not just throw the eggs at the middle of the pack if the answer doesn't actually matter? Big Brother always has a trivia component. Minus 2.

Minus another 4 for the guys having to throw underhand. Come on, at least let Jake wind up for a fastball at Vienna the Cheater. Three times!
