9 Celebrity Relationships That Surprised Us

New celebrity relationships seem to blossom every week, and many of them, whether for love or business seem to be an unlikely match. We've compiled a list of some the most surprising pairs, most short-lived, but some are still going strong. — Nina M. Nwofia

Soulja Boy and Meagan Good
Meagan Good didn’t admit to her relationship with Soulja Boy until they broke up. Most were in the dark about the pair, but unsurprisingly, they didn’t last. In a Twitter feud after the break-up, Good alleged that the rapper was gay.
Mariah and Nick Cannon

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
We’re so accustomed to seeing Mariah and Nick together that it’s easy to forget how surprised we were about their engagement. Then Mariah didn’t seem to mind their 11-year age difference, but Nick Cannon was barely out of his Wild ‘n Out antics. Regardless of their differences, we’re glad they’re still going strong.
Kimora and Djimon

Djimon Hounsou and Kimora Lee Simmons
Kimora Lee Simmons was living her life in the diva fast lane when she met Djimon Hounsou, better known for his film roles than any paparazzi antics. The two split, but not before their adorable son Kenzo was born.
Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz

Erica Mena and Rich Dollaz
Rich received warnings from his mother, fellow managers and clients to leave Erica Mena alone during their well-documented relationship on Love & Hip-Hop, but he had other plans.
Sean and Maliah

Sean Kingston and Maliah Michel
We first heard of Houston stripper Maliah Michel in Drake’s “Miss Me” in 2010. The two stars dated briefly, but her heart was with Sean Kingston, who collaborated with Justin Bieber and crooned about steering clear of “Beautiful Girls.”
Chilli and TJ Holmes

TJ Holmes and Chilli
Before BET’s Don’t Sleep, TJ Holmes was a straight-laced reporter on CNN, so it’s hard to envision him with a member of an iconic female hip-hop group. But, he had eyes for TLC band member, Chilli. The pair split before their relationship was revealed, and TJ Holmes is now married with a baby girl named Sabine.
50 cent and Vivica

50 Cent and Vivica Fox
It's hard to imagine thugged-out 50 Cent approaching Vivica Fox, who's been linked to Quentin Tarantino and Jamie Foxx. But the pair dated for sometime, until they split in 2003.
50 cent and Chelsea

50 Cent and Chelsea Handler
Who knew that funny girl Chelsea Handler had a thing for rappers? Chelsea briefly dated 50 Cent before telling Howard Stern that Ciara was trying to get back with her rapper boo, and she thought it was "eighth grade." She did say, however, that the rap mogul was a nice guy who treated her well.
stevie j and eve

Stevie J and Eve
Stevie J is best known for displaying ratchetness on Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta making it easy to forget that he’s an acclaimed producer. Even Eve admitted that although he was her first love, they wouldn’t even “speak the same language” today.

"I just don't believe in shutting down. I believe in that's what the Lord had for me," she said. "Babies don't get in the way of careers, we get in the way of careers. If that's what the Lord had for me from the very beginning, there's nothing nobody can do and nobody can say."

Tinashe Resurfaces With Exciting Message: "I'm Back And Better"

Tinashe fans rejoice! After a hiatus, the Joyride artist resurfaced on Instagram Saturday (Sept. 28), in a brief video expressing that she's “back and better.”

After a tumultuous relationship with her label RCA, the singer-songwriter broke ties with the company. Since then, she's been hibernating in her “cave,” as she puts it.

"Creatively, I just feel like I needed to go through what I went through in order to be the person that I am today and to get back to my roots," she explained. "You pretty much put your heart and soul and emotions into all these songs and then you put them out there for the world to judge and tear down and pick apart. It's terrifying and it can really mess with your head."

In an interview with VIBE, Tinashe expressed how important it is for her to stay true to herself and artistry. “It’s not even necessarily speaking up but coming to your own conclusions yourself and owning your own instincts and trusting in yourself and creative power,” she said. “I think that’s something that is always important to continue to maintain. It’s easy for that sometimes to get derailed, and it’s important to come back to that.”

During her recent statement, she broke down the importance of art and how it should be expressed through individuality and free expression, sans any boxes or limitations. Making people happy through her music is the goal.

"Music and art are supposed to be these wonderful beautiful things that bring people joy and happiness, and that's really why I started making music in the first place—to give people something that means something to them,” she said.

Although Tinashe did not say when fans can expect new music, she did share a snippet of what she’s been working on in the studio in a separate post. “I’m too emotional.”
