6 Celebrity Couples Who Will Make a Comeback in 2016
2015 was the year of shocking celebrity break-ups. Every year, it’s inevitable that celebrities will suffer some sort of misfortune within a relationship. Celebrity couples tend to have unstable relationships due to busy schedules, different jobs within the industry, and simply the pressures of the entertainment industry.
This past year, we’ve seen relationship disaster after relationship disaster. To name a few, think back to Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, or the shocking divorce of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. Because 2015 was such a blow to celebrity couples, I have a feeling 2016 might be the year of relationship comebacks. Unfortunately, I don’t see Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton getting back together anytime soon, but there are some celebrity couples (some we may have forgotten about) that could have a chance in the new year.
Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
2015 was the on-and-off year for these Amazing Spider-Man co-stars. No wonder, because usually movie franchise couples try to make it work, but the relationship always ends in some unfortunate way. But because these stars got back together after their initial break-up, then there’s a chance they’ll reconnect again in the new year.
Though Amazing Spider-Man 3 was called off awhile ago, that doesn’t mean these two don’t have a chance. Even more so, they probably have a better chance if they aren’t associated in some way through a movie franchise.
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber
Is it too late now to say sorry? Because Justin still thinks Selena is his girl, according to a video that was released of him serenading his ex at a hotel. His latest hit song, Sorry, is also apparently about Selena, and their relationship in which he made some mistakes maybe once or twice, or maybe a couple of hundred times.
Selena and Justin first started dating in 2010, and the relationship lasted for a couple years until their intial break-up in 2012 when Justin began a streak of bad behavior. Then the two entered what seemed to be an on-and-off relationship, until Justin had some more questionable behavior in 2014. Remember his court deposition that shocked his fans? This was only about two years ago, but since then, Justin has made a huge comeback in the music industry once again, possibly allowing an open door back into a relationship with Selena Gomez. The two have been communicating through songs for quite sometime, and in October, a three-year-old duet between the pair leaked online. They also haven’t been quiet about each other in the news. They have been seen grabbing dinner from time to time and catching up as “old friends.” Maybe 2016 is the year of the “Jelena” comeback.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
This couple was grouped in the many shocking celebrity couple break-ups this year. They shocked us all when they announced their divorce in June 2015. Because Ben and Jennifer had disregarded so many break-up rumors for so long, we definitely thought these two would last a lifetime. We were clearly mistaken.
June was six months ago, and after announcing their split, they still have not filed for divorce. What’s stopping them? It’s hard to tell. It seems their break-up was a major scandal in the news, given the rumor that Ben and the nanny were having an affair. Not long after announcing their split, they were seen together once again. Ben was visiting Jen on set, and the two moved back in together shortly after separating. Give these two some time, and 2016 will be their year.
Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick
It seems Kourtney and Scott don’t understand that dating is supposed to be stable. The infamous couple have been on-and-off for years, so without giving it much thought, it’s obvious the two will get back together again sometime in 2016. Why? It makes good TV. Plus, they have three children together and Kourtney can’t seem to find anyone else she argues better with. They’re currently on a “break” right now, but that won’t last long. They were seen together during the Thanksgiving holiday. Although Scott definitely needs to get his act together, it’s hard for him to leave the Kardashian clan behind. He’s an only child with both of his parents deceased. Unfortunately, without Kourtney or his kids, he has nobody.
However, this dynamic duo has always had a rocky relationship. If (and when) they get back together in 2016, don’t be surprised that the two have another child and then enter into another on-and-off again relationship of constant break-ups and arguments.
Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt
Jon and Jennifer called it quits in September 2015 after 18 long years of marriage. In general, 18 years is a long time, but in Hollywood years, that’s an eternity. The two were spotted shortly after their split at Jon’s L.A. home with suitcases. In November, rumors surfaced that the two were rekindling their love, which is no surprise given that they have broken up in the past before. Though some argue the break-up seems certain this time because Jon was struggling with some personal issues of his own, don’t completely rule them out in the new year. Regardless, the couple has stated that they will remain friends at the very least. How could you not? With such a long marriage, I would hope these two remain close.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
It’s obvious that Khloe never wanted to divorce Lamar. It was his apparent lifestyle that ultimately destroyed the relationship. His drug overdose this past year that almost cost him his life was hopefully a wake-up call. In a way, he’s been given a second chance to re-establish himself, lose the drugs, and maybe win back Khloe. She has stated time and time again that she will always love Lamar. The two had a pretty stable relationship without Lamar’s drugs and his womanizing.
Technically and legally speaking, the two are still married, amid Lamar’s hospitilization when Khloe decided to call off the divorce finalization. She also spent the holidays visiting him at the hospital. If that’s not true love, I don’t know what is. Though she is currently dating James Harden (who has fortunately been supportive through Lamar’s recovery), it’s possible that Khloe and Lamar could reconnect in the new year. It would take a lot of recovery and healing on his part though.
