CELEBRITY Relationships

There's been a change in the wind in Hollywood, and celebrities we thought we had figured out are now crossing aesthetics, genres, interests, and generations to surprise us with A-list combinations that sound like they were plucked randomly from out of a hat.

The most unexpected couple of them all was certainly Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker. Things turned romantic around the beginning of 2021, they had a summer of steamy love including tattoos, PDA, and vacations, and now they're engaged! The Blink-182 drummer reportedly popped the question on October 17 at Rosewood Miramar hotel in Montecito, California, just as the sun was setting. He brought Kourtney out to the beach where red flowers made out a heart, and a source told TMZ that Kourtney, who "had no idea" Barker was planning to propose, "teared up and couldn't stop saying, 'I love you.'" Khloe, Kim, Kris, as well as Tristan Thompson and Corey Gamble were also spotted on the scene, and after Kourtney said "yes," they all celebrated inside the hotel. 

Some of these unlikely celebrity pairings might be a reflection of the completely unpredictable times we're living in, where life and death situations have become fearfully closer, and thus where people are no longer wasting time with preconceived notions and anything other than what makes them feel good.

These celebrities are embracing love where they find it, whether that means taking a romantic chance on an old best friend or going on a date with someone completely out of their normal sphere.
