Our Favorite Controversial Celebrity Couples

Rihanna Chris Brown

As much as we love the fairytale love story (Jay Z and Beyonce), it's the controversial ones that are our guilty pleasures. We're either waiting for these bad couples to prove everyone wrong or to face more daggers when their relationships go sour. While some of our favorite most-hated couples are no longer together, we still love what they were. Here's a list of our favorite controversial celebrity couples.

--

Chris Brown and Rihanna

When they were together we loved the way they showered each other with attention. Despite going their separate ways—which is for the best—they had chemistry that transformed into top-charting singles.

Ludacris and Eudoxie

Like Dwade, Ludacris surprised us all with his new daughter being born. However that didn't stop us from loving his leading lady and hoping the best for them. He just reminded us that even celebrities make stupid choices, but how they handle them shows their real character. She's definitely a keeper and he'd be stupid to lose her.

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez

What we love so much about Olivier is his willingness to fight for his girl. While he should probably choose his words over his fists; he holds nothing back once his women's respect is jeopardized. After his altercation with her baby father, Gabriel Aubrey, and the paparazzi, the public isn't much of a fan of the couple but we can't help but love them more.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith

We have always loved this couple even if tabloids are rooting for their demise. They are a good example of Black love and they try their hardest to maintain face through every issue thrown their way. A couple like this is rare in Hollywood and we want them to continue to upset the naysayers.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union

Their relationship has been full of controversy. From his first divorce fiasco and now baby mama drama, Gabby has been there supporting him every bit of the way. Many may not be Team Union/Wade and people are always in their business looking for ways to hate them. Somehow through it all we can't help but love and root for their upcoming nuptials and future together as one big blended family!

When we first heard of these two getting together, we were among the skeptics. However after they've managed to deal with the paparazzi, her divorce, and a new baby on the way. After a year of devotion to each other, we are officially team KimYe.

Chris Brown and Karrueche

Chris Brown is a wild boy, as his many run ins with the law can attest to it, but Karrueche is the lady that calms him down. Through all their make ups and break ups, she has never shown a nasty side. She always supports him and endures the negativity and judgement with grace. With her milder side and his bad boy reputation, they make for a balanced relationship.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

Brad Pitt shocked everyone when he left his wife for rumored co-star Angelina Jolie. While they've never admitted it, we eventually understood that Angelina was the better fit for him. While Jennifer Aniston was a good wife, it was Jolie that gave him life. We never love the side chick but there's always an exception to the rule and Brangelina is that exception.

Tamera Mowry-Housley and Adam Housley

When we found out Tamera's relationship with her white husband wasn't received well by critics, we hurt with her because they display a genuine love for one another and their growing family. It's upsetting that people can't see passed color but we're happy they don't let other's judgement affect how they feel for one another.

Bobbi Kristina Brown

Bobbi Kristina and Nick Gordon

Bobbi and Nick's foundation is very unconventional—he's not her real brother but he was raised as family and then they fell in love. Although didn't agree with their nuptials as first, as long as she's happy, we hope for the best between them.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

Ever since Mila and Ashton had a fictitious relationship on "That '70s Show", we were rooting for it to blossom into a real life one.

Joe Budden and Tahiry

Joe Budden is a piece of work and Tahiry is the only girl that can deal with all his baggage. Proving she's a ride or die, she's helped him get through his drug addictions and always supported him whether they were together or not. The aficionados of 'make up to break up', we're rooting they make it official and she makes a honest man out of Joey.

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian

We fell in love with Lamar and Khloe's relationship over the years. Although the couple had a crazy last year that led to divorce, they were one of our favorite Kardashian relationships.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick

When we first met Scott, we hated him. He seemed to take advantage of Kourtney without a care to what America thought about his actions. But over the course of the years, we started to grow a liking to him, and their on-and-off relationship has gained our respect.

LaQuan Smith On How A Confident Nature Bloomed His Fall/Winter Collection

New York's Spring Studios may have been dripped in white backdrops during NYFW, but the flavor was anything but bland during LaQuan Smith's Fall/Winter 2020 show. Presented alongside the launch of the new Moët & Chandon Limited-Edition Signature bottlings, the edgy but benevolent designer presented all-black looks that would make any fast fashion soldier switch over to the luxurious side.

Puffer jackets with skirts to match arrived down the runaway with baggy tracksuits, giving the audience an array of looks for the cozy girl all the way down to the trendy posh woman. Speaking with VIBE backstage, Smith shared how the importance of confident women inspired his recent unveiling. "I just wanted to do something that was super confident and really progressive," he explained. "I think that I have a really true sense of who my woman is at this point so right now I'm really having fun being able to design for a woman who is super comfortable in her own skin. This strong sense of elegance, glamour, and confidence is like the woman that I'm designing for so that was sort of the mood and the attitude for this season's collection."

The conscious mix of a free spirit and earnest attitude is something Smith has conjured since his early days on the scene. After making his NYFW debut in 2010, Smith has attracted the biggest names in entertainment on the runway like Rihanna, Cassie, Serena Williams, Nicki Minaj and recently supermodel Winnie Harlow. With such dominating and powerful women in Smith's orbit, it makes it easy to see just how spot-on his looks are.

But famous ladies aren't Smith's only muses. His show consisted of women of color—specifically Sudanese and Asian models, which made a big splash on social media. There was also a plus-size model who rocked the hell out of a little black dress.

"I'm inspired by a woman who appreciates getting dressed up in the day," Smith added. "Not even having a reason to dress up, just 'Yes!' Just 2 o'clock in the afternoon. I'm really about somebody who just enjoys the thrill of dressing up." But Smith's goal at the end of the day is to bring back chic demeanor of yesterday, where fashionistas would dress to the nines on Casual Fridays.

"I want to revive those moments again where women would wear skirt suits during the day to go to work," he said while pointing to his boiled wool jackets and matching pencil skirts. "They can transition from day to evening. I want to be able to bring back that level of glamour from an American perspective because I'm from New York City and this is the city that made me, this is the city that inspired me so for me to just be able to design and create off of all of my inspirations and my upbringing is a thrill."

Tina Turner's "What's Love Got To Do With It" closed the show but the celebratory vibes continued with guests like Tinashe, Delilah Hamlin, Amelia Hamlin, ASAP Ferg and Renell Medrano, Ryan Jamaal Swain, Young Paris, Patrick Starr, and Cyn Santana enjoying Moët & Chandon.

Jump-Start Your Dove Body Wash Spa Day With These 14 Self-Care Jams

When was the last time you enjoyed a spa day? Dove has allowed you to come up with one sooner than later thanks to their newly formulated body washes.

Introduced to retailers last week, the beauty brand's latest body washes contain "Moisture Renew Blend," a gathering of skin-natural nutrients that help revive and maintain the skin's moisture barrier. Because many of us lose lipids during shower/bath time, the new formula makes room for an enhanced blend of stearic and palmitic acids to better mimic what is naturally found in the skin.

The beauty enthusiasts and natural lovers out there will be thrilled to know the product was made with 100 percent gentle naturally-derived cleansers (Glycinate and DEFI), free of sulfates and parabens, and pH balanced.

With 14 new variants and Valentine's Day around the corner, it's only right to plan ahead for a focused day of self-care. Below is a playlist supporting each new scent. From Ari Lennox's "Shea Butter Baby" painting a theme for the Pampering Body Wash Shea Butter & Warm Vanilla to D'Angelo's "Alright" absorbing the vibe of the Sensitive Skin Body Wash, there's a scent and dynamic sound made for you.

Listen to the full playlist here and enjoy the benefits of each Dove Body Wash below.

Dinah Jane Talks First World Solo Tour And New Music

After the release of her first solo EP in 2019, Dinah Jane is ready to embark on her first solo world tour.

Chatting with VIBE at Billboard's 2020 Power event, the former Fifth Harmony songstress shared her plans for the year, which include a tour alongside Agnez Mo and new music. Her EP Dinah Jane -1, presented a new direction for Jane who leaned into her vocal chops while showcasing her love for R&B.

"I was in a position where L.A. Reid gave me the power and stepped up for a project that I believed in. Just to have that kind of power meant the world to me," she said of the project which included the tracks "Fix It" and "Heard It All Before." "I'm so happy I came out with that mini project because it gave people a great introduction into who I am and what I'm about to step into and what I'm about to explore."

When it comes to new music, Jane has something in mind for the lovers and her dearest fans. "Missed A Spot," will release on Valentine's Day (Feb. 14) along with more new tunes. "I'm really excited because my fans have been with me since I could remember," she said."From dropping my first YouTube video when I was 11-years-old, this little stinky 7th grader who had like 20 views. Now that I'm 22, I've evolved into an actual musician, it really means a lot that my music can speak to people. I love that people are loving the music and I can't wait to give them more of it."

The U.S. portion of the tour begins in Phoenix, Ariz. on April 7.  Fans can currently purchase tickets for the North American dates on Dinah Jane's website.

"Being a solo artist now made it hard to define who I was because I was singing so many different styles before," Jane told VIBE in 2019. "I had to take time for me to really cope and understand what it is that I really want to come out as my true identity. When I dropped my first record "Bottled Up" it was more me transitioning from Fifth Harmony to myself, I really love that I took some downtime to understand who I was and who I want to be."
