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.

Just a few hours ago, THG debated whether Kim Kardashian should give advice on teen pregnancy, in light of her recent remarks on MTV's Teen Mom.

This celebrity gossip writer argued that Kim's comments were uncalled for, given the reasons behind her fame, and it was not her place to weigh in.

Farrah Abraham appears to agree.

Still Single

It looks like Kim's Teen Mom tirade may have gotten a bit too preachy for one of its cast members, who responded to K-squared's criticism on Twitter.

Last week, Kim took to her blog to speak out against teen pregnancy and included MTV’s Teen Mom in the missive, saying it fosters a troubling trend.

“It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls,” was one choice Kim excerpt.

“These kids are all over the news, even covers of magazines, and have almost become celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!”

Farrah Abraham takes issue with Kim, to say the least.

THG Asks!

Welcome to THG's new feature, in which two of our celebrity gossip experts debate topical issues in the entertainment world and you decide who wrote the winning argument!

Today, THG Asks: Should Kim Kardashian give advice on teen pregnancy?

YES by Hilton Hater

Let me be clear: by no stretch of any imagination should Kim Kardashian be a role model.

She is famous solely because she made a sex tape, hired a good publicist and is willing to attach her name to any product on the market.

But these facts don't change another fact: she IS a role model. She has close to four million Facebook fans, six million Twitter followers.

For reasons that defy comprehension, people - many of whom are teenage women - care about what Kim says, thinks and does.

So instead of finding another reason to bash her, why not applaud Kim for actually using her pedestal for an important cause? Yes, she got there by having filmed intercourse with Ray J. But she didn't get pregnant as a result, did she?

See. She talks the talk and has walked the walk.


NO by Free Britney 

Look at the photo above. This is who's opining on social issues of our time.

This isn't to say that Kim Kardashian is a bad person, or that she can't have opinions on serious subjects. But she needs to know her role and shut her yap too.

Kim's missive about Teen Mom glorifying pregnancy is laughable. Not because of the MTV show's content, but because of the reasons you know who Kim is.

Kim loves her kurves. Kim endorses QuikTrim! Kim shows kleavage on Twitter! Kim shills for new show! Kim dates half the NFL! Kim endorses bogus kredit kard!

She accuses Teen Mom of making celebrities out of its cast, an odd message from a girl who got famous from a sex tape and flaunts her sexuality on a daily basis.

The ultimate product of the same celebrity-obsessed culture she derides, Kim has milked it for a fortune, has zero credibility and is in no position to judge.

THG Asks you ... should Kim be giving advice? Who won this argument?

Kim Kardashian sides with Free Britney.

In a recent edition of THG Asks, one of our columnists argued that Teen Mom glorifies teen pregnancy. Now, in response to a report that 90 - yes, 90! - girls from a Memphis high school are knocked up or have given birth this year, Kim has blogged the following:

Ruined By Teen Mom

It seems that shows like Teen Mom are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls. The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have been become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize!

When I think back to when I was 16, there is no way I would even have considered having a baby. That thought wouldn’t even have entered my head. Having a baby is one one of the biggest, and most life-changing decisions a person can make and while I’m not saying that no teen is in the position to raise a child, having a baby so young shouldn’t be seen as the trendy thing to do.

We couldn't agree with Kim more. Amber Portwood, on the other hand?
