A Laguna Beach alumna, the gorgeous Lauren Conrad has gone on to be the star of its spin-off series, The Hills. Back in her high school...

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.

Lauren Conrad and her fiancé William Tell are a picture-perfect couple. This engagement photo she shared on Instagram is just further proof of it.

Check out the image she shared from the couple's shoot with renowned wedding photographer Elizabeth Messina. They look so happy together ...

Lauren Conrad Engagement Photo

"The photo above is from my engagement shoot with William," she wrote.

Lauren Conrad then added: "The very talented Elizabeth Messina came to our home to photograph us in our element. I love how the photos turned out!"

William Tell, a law student and former member of the band Something Corporate, proposed to LC last October after almost two years of dating.

We know she has great taste in fashion, so we're anxiously awaiting her wedding to see what the reality star, designer and author has in mind for that.

Check out some of the most memorable celebrity wedding dresses below:

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag shared the story of their rise and fall from fame in an E! special Monday, and there were some interesting revelations.

From 2006-2010, "Speidi" became household names, starring on MTV's The Hills as the villains to Lauren Conrad's nice girl on the Laguna Beach spinoff.

Now they're nearly broke, having blown through $10 million, they revealed on After Shock: Heidi & Spencer, although their marriage has stayed strong.

Spencer Pratt, 30, and Heidi Montag, 27, certainly have a story that's unique.

"I regret playing the villain so hard with not saving my money," he told E! "I would be laughing all the way to the bank being a hated multimillionaire right now."

The newly engaged Lauren Conrad, who covers this week's Cosmopolitan, says she had no indication that William Tell was planning to pop the question.

The 27-year-old fashion designer says she didn't think the University of Southern California law student was ready to get engaged ... but was he ever!

"He didn't even ask my friends, which was a bold move," Lauren Conrad says. "He said, 'I know you, and I know what you like.' And I love it. It's perfect."

The two have yet to set a date, but the former Hills star isn't worried. In fact, she's just happy to have found a nice guy after years of dating bad boys.

"You have the rest of your life to be married. Enjoy falling in love. When girls get caught up in the timeline, it becomes more about the wedding than the marriage."

"You should be with someone with whom you could elope and be happy."

Well, maybe not Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag. But you know what we mean.

Believe it or not, the bangs are actually fake. Yes, LC used some clip-in ones in order to test the look before she did anything drastic to her hair!

Bangs or no bangs, there's one thing she's not on the fence about. The Laguna Beach and The Hills star says she's happy she got out of TV.

The 27-year-old, who's now an author, said: “I hoped I didn’t (have to stay on TV). Everybody told me to stay on TV. Nobody wanted me to leave.”

She said her new book, Infamous, will give her fans a more complete picture about her life. Meanwhile, tell us what you think of this one tiny aspect:

What do you think is Lauren Conrad's best hairstyle?

Lauren Conrad, who turns 27 today, is the exception, not the rule, in today's celeb culture. After achieving fame at a young age, she chose to scale back.

Choosing to focus on her "real" life and branch out career-wise from reality TV, The Hills star has led a life largely under the radar for a few years now.

She's topped the N.Y. Times Bestseller List and achieved success as a celebrity fashion designer, but seems to content to live a lower-profile life.

More power to her for that.
