5 Celebrity Relationships We Didn't Think Would Last This Long

Celebrity relationships are a mess.

They often change so quickly that we can't even keep track of who's together and who's not anymore. Not that we're trying to be total downers, but we don't have much faith that any of our favorite pairings will last, no matter how much we hold out hope.

Sometimes, however, these famous couples surprise all of us by actually staying together. Keep scrolling for five celebrity relationships we didn't think would last this long.

Justin and Hailey Bieber

We'd be surprised if anyone thought that Justin and Hailey Bieber were truly going to last. Only two months after officially ending his relationship with Selena Gomez, Justin was spotted out and about with Hailey in May 2018. By July, the pair was engaged. Keep in mind that this was the same summer that Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson got engaged in an incredibly short amount of time. Was it something in the water?

But while Ariana and Peter went their separate ways, Justin and Hailey appear to be in it for the long haul. They got married in Sept. 2018 (again, super fast!), and have since seemed to grow happier and more secure in their relationship. In Sept. 2019, they threw a big wedding celebration surrounded by friends and family, putting rumors of the struggles in their relationship to bed. We were certain they'd be broken up within a few months, but this couple actually seems really happy together.

Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes

Camila Cabello's relationship with Shawn Mendes seemed to pop up out of nowhere. They were best friends for years, and suddenly they were dating and making out all over the internet. Rumors of their relationship first began in July 2019. Although they made no effort to hide their PDA, they didn't really confirm their coupling until late Aug./early Sept. Still, the fact that it seemed to pop up out of nowhere had us absolutely convinced that things wouldn't last.

But the joke is on us because eight months later, this couple is still going strong. Shawn just flew all the way to London twice to celebrate both Valentine's Day and Camila's birthday with his ladylove. Although Camila has recently said that their relationship takes a lot out of both of them, they do seem really happy together. We're rooting for them!

Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson

We absolutely, 150% did not think that Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson were going to last. Like Camila and Shawn, the two had been friends for years while Miley was still in a relationship with Liam Hemsworth. When Miley split from Liam in Aug. 2019, she seemed like she just wanted to have fun. She began a relationship with The Hills star Kaitlynn Carter almost immediately, only to end the relationship after a few short weeks.

We assumed that it would be much the same situation with Cody Simpson. Days after ending her relationship with Kaitlynn, Miley was seen partaking in lots of PDA with Cody. The pair's relationship took off from there, filled with an annoying amount of social media posts to show everyone just how in love they are. We truly thought it would burn hot and end quickly, but they're still together. Honestly, it could all still come crashing down, but for now, they still seem to surprisingly be trucking along .


Ashley Benson and Cara Delevingne

Ashley Benson and Cara Delevingne first met while filming the movie Her Smell in April 2018. By May, Ashely had posted her first Instagram photo with Cara, and pictures started to emerge of the two holding hands and getting quite cozy together. They're actually really cute, but we didn't think it would last, simply because the two have been so publicly coy about their relationship. They didn't even confirm that they were dating until June 2019!

At that point, however, Cara also confirmed that she and Ashely actually live together. Apparently, all the weird behavior was simply due to the fact that they didn't want to address their relationship in public, which we can respect. We thought it would be a short-lived fling, but this couple is going on two years together and seems happier than ever.


Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse

Last, but not least, Lili Reinhart and Cole Sprouse have surprised everyone by staying together for nearly three years now. The pair first sparked dating rumors in early 2017, though they didn't confirm their relationship publicly until they walked the red carpet together at the 2018 Met Gala. In fact, they pretty much refused to talk about their relationship, making it clear that it was nobody's business.

Since then, there have been a few scares that have caused fans to assume that they've broken-up, but they always manage to poke fun at the rumors while making it clear that they're very happy together. We're surprised by their relationship simply because they're young actors trying to make it in a really difficult industry. Three years is a long time for two people to stay together, but we're so happy that this pair is making things work.
