Scoop: A look back at 2016’s annoying, shocking celeb couples

The folks at The Hollywood Gossip compiled a handy roundup of what they call the year’s “worst” celebrity couples; we can’t disagree!

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston

The pop superstar and lesser-known actor’s romance caught the world by storm about as quickly as it ended. The summer liaison seemed perfect — until it wasn’t.

Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus

These two have been on again and off again so many times, gossip watchers are getting whiplash. The hunky actor, however, recently looked super awkward in a Cyrus family Christmas photo on Instagram, and some have suggested their 2017 wedding may be off.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

It was a banner year for drama in the lives of these media mongers. Some reports have indicated recent tension (and divorce plans), even though the pair has seemed better together after Kanye’s breakdown.

Donald and Melania Trump

It might be interesting to see what happens to the marriage, with Mrs. Trump declining to move to the White House — and the possibility of daughter Ivanka making some first lady-like moves.

Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell

No one quite knows the current status of “The Bachelor” couple, who were supposed to live happily-ever-after, and even had their own spin-off on Freeform. However, on that show, Lauren called the wedding off.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Once Hollywood’s golden couple, now a Hollywood disaster, Brangelina’s divorce news shocked everyone, and what’s followed has been equally dramatic, with allegations of child abuse and even Angie’s hiring of crisis manager Judy Smith, the inspiration for “Scandal’s” Kerry Washington’s character Olivia Pope.

Kourtney Karashian and Scott Disick

The latest scoop on this famously off-and-on pair is that they are back together — and Kourtney is pregnant again.

Kylie Jenner and Tyga

Their Instragram posts (of themselves) have been were cringe-worthy, not to mention cheating rumors.

Justin Bieber and Sofia Richie

The pop star and model’s six-week romance ended with a brouhaha in which Bieber ended up closing down Instagram account.

Amber Heard and Johnny Depp

The headline-making Hollywood couple’s brief marriage ended nastily, amid allegations of abuse.

Lindsay Lohan and Egor Tarabasov

The nightmare actress and Russian real estate mogul’s romance and engagement ended messily and publicly, after she accused him of cheating on social media and they had an explosive fight on a Greek isle.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Actor Kit Harington is 30. … Actor-singer Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars is 45. … Drummer Lars Ulrich of Metallica is 53. … Humorist David Sedaris is 60. … Politician Gray Davis is 74. … Record producer Phil Spector is 77. … Actor Caroll Spinney (Big Bird on “Sesame Street”) is 83.
