Chloë Grace Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham have been engaged in a long, rocky, and passionate love affair for many years now. It's been dominating the headlines for quite some time, and people are still trying to figure out what exactly is going on between these two. And these two stars seem to be purposely misleading the public about the details of their romance on social media and in their public statements. Just how serious is this relationship? Are they even still together? What's with all the crazy twists and turns that this up and down relationship has taken over the years?
It seems like these two young adults are caught between two worlds. On the one hand, they seem to keep their private lives secret, and they don't drop any hints on social media besides a few vague references to their love for each other. And on the other hand, it's almost impossible to keep things secret because of the public's obsession with this relationship. But one thing's for sure: there are still secrets in this relationship that hardly anyone knows about, and we're about to shed some light on what's really going on in this compelling example of teen love...
15 Who Knows If They're Actually Still Together
What's the craziest secret about Chloë and Brooklyn's relationship? We don't even know if they're still together. Seriously. This relationship has been full of ups and downs, and over the years it's been totally on and off. One minute they seem to be together, and the next they seem to be taking time apart from each other. One thing's for sure, this relationship seems to be the very definition of "it's complicated."
Recently, they seem to have gotten back together again after a long break. But who knows how serious it is this time? Could they just be friends? The only people who really know what's going on in this relationship are Chloë and Brooklyn, and while they're not shy about posting pics of each other on their social media (check their Instagram accounts), they never really tell us how serious the relationship is, or whether they're actually "boyfriend and girlfriend" in the traditional sense.
14 They Could Be Engaged
Another crazy secret about this relationship is that it might actually be way more serious than any of us think. Yes, that's right, there are some people who believe this young Hollywood couple is actually engaged. This rumor was reported on by People.com, after a very telling social media post, in which both Chloë and Brooklyn posed with their hands covering their mouths, wearing rings that looked pretty serious.
Upon closer inspection, it was clear that one ring had a "C" for Chloë, while the other had a "B" for Brooklyn. Some people interpreted these to be unique wedding rings, and this argument was given even more weight by the fact that Chloë captioned this photo on Instagram with "I will." Obviously, fans were demanding to know what this all meant, but once again the couple remained tight-lipped.
13 Their Romance Sparked Due To Their Love Of Skateboarding
People often forget how young these two are. In many ways, they're just like any other young couple right now. And when they first met, they were both acting like regular teens. In fact, their love first sparked over a shared passion for something pretty awesome - skateboarding. Some of the first pictures of them in public together were of the duo skateboarding around Los Angeles together.
Chloë loves to skate, but as she admits, Brooklyn takes it a lot more seriously than she does. In 2014, she admitted in an interview with Company: "I think he's a risk taker, like a typical guy, weaving in and out of people. I'm a 'safety boarder.' I don't want to break any bones!" This just shows us how young this couple was when they first started dating. In many ways, they're still kids - even though they've both done a lot of growing up since these pictures were taken.
12 The Paparazzi Was Affecting Their Relationship
One thing that this couple has had to get used to quite early on in their relationship is the paparazzi. Some of us probably fantasize about becoming famous, but it comes with its drawbacks. Chloë and Brooklyn couldn't really step outside without getting their picture taken by a small army of photographers, and they were constantly talked about in the entertainment news. By the very merit of this article, they still remain a focal point for gossip articles.
And as Chloë admitted, this began to really drag their relationship down. She admitted in 2016 on CBS's The Talk: "We were always running from paparazzi...it [was] affecting our relationship...we were like, if we were more upfront about it...and just let them take our photo—they aren't going to care." Could this be one of the reasons for their relationship troubles over the years?
11 They Broke Up Because Of An Argument At A Coldplay Concert
It's no secret that these two have had their ups and downs, with public breakups seemingly happening multiple times. Some of these splits seem to happen randomly and without any reason. And then out of nowhere, they're seen dating each other once again, as if nothing ever happened. We don't pretend to know the reason for all these breakups, but there is one rumor that is particularly interesting.
Since they started dating, both Chloë and Brooklyn have had similar tastes in music. Coldplay is one of their favorite bands, and so a trip to see one of their concerts seemed like the perfect date. However, according to CelebsNow, they had a huge argument at this concert, and that was the reason for their most recent and biggest breakup yet. They're only just seeming to reconcile now.
10 Brooklyn May Have Proposed
We've already mentioned how Brooklyn and Chloë were seen wearing special rings, which some people interpreted to be a sign of their engagement. But how did this happen in the first place? Well, some media outlets such as the Daily Mail have assumed that Brooklyn actually got down on one knee at some point and proposed to his film star girlfriend. He even caused a huge frenzy when he was photographed getting down on one knee outside of a night club with Chloë... but it turned out he was just picking up some money that he dropped.
Well, if he did propose to her, then why hasn't there been an official announcement? Some say that this is just one huge secret that the couple is keeping, while others predict that Chloë might have actually said no - or at least told Brooklyn she wanted to wait.
9 Brooklyn May Have Flirted With Other Women During The Relationship
There's no doubt that Brooklyn Beckham is extremely popular with the ladies. Everywhere he goes, he seems to have a small army of what he calls "fangirls" following him around. He's the son of a sporting legend and a fashion and music icon, so it makes sense that girls want to get to know him. But while he's been linked to Chloë most of his adult life, he also seems to hang out with a lot of other girls...
While there's the obvious matter of his other girlfriends he's had over the years, he's also been photographed with tons of other women, especially when he's partying in London. On more than one occasion, he's been photographed with mystery girls outside nightclubs in England's capital, seemingly flirting with them. According to the Daily Mail, this is evidence of him flirting with some of the lovely single ladies in London. Who knows what he gets up to in his spare time, but it's obvious that we wouldn't have to try very hard to get pretty much any girl he wanted...
8 He Might Be Seeing Madison Beer On The Side
Brooklyn's most famous girlfriend other than Chloë was definitely Madison Beer. This is of course the girl that Justin Bieber discovered, tweeting a video of her singing, and instantly propelling her to fame. She's only 19, but she's been through a lot and seems ready to take on the world. For a long time, Madison Beer was linked with Brooklyn Beckham, although she insisted in an AOL Build Series interview that the two were never dating, only "crushing on each other," whatever that means.
So what happened between them? According to Dailymail, Brooklyn Beckham confirmed the relationship...so which is it? Some say that they're still friendly with each other, and that Brooklyn might even be seeing her on the side. She's definitely an attractive young woman, and she gives Chloë a run for her money. If they were never really dating in the first place, could it be that they might remain "friends with benefits," or hang out together in a casual way with no strings attached?
7 Chloe Might Be Pushing Brooklyn Away
There are many people out there who think that Chloë might be the one pushing Brooklyn away. Brooklyn seems totally obsessed with Chloë, while the young film star seems more focuses on her career more than anything else. She is a very driven women, and she doesn't seem like the type to let Brooklyn stand in the way of her success.
Take this quote from Chloë, for example, which comes from an interview with Elle in 2016: "My boyfriend is a huge support. I mean, don't get me wrong, I don't need a man for anything, but when I'm feeling bad about myself, he's like, 'Stop. Look at what you say in interviews. Look at what you stand for. Listen to your own words, because you're as beautiful as you say you are!'"
This all seems well and good, but consider the first part of that sentence: "I don't need a man for anything." Could she be pushing Brooklyn away because she values her independence and her feminism more than anything else?
6 She Became Part Of The Beckham Family
You can usually tell how serious a relationship is by how well each partner knows the other partner's family. Being welcomed into the family is a sign that the relationship is getting serious, and that's definitely happened with Chloë and Brooklyn. The Beckhams consider to be "part of the family" now, and they know her quite well. It's definitely a sign that this relationship isn't going away anytime soon.
On the other side of the coin, Chloë herself really admires Beckham's family, especially his mother, who is of course Victoria Beckham, AKA Posh Spice. Speaking about the legendary figure in 2016 with Access Hollywood, Chloë revealed: "I think [Brooklyn is] used to powerful women in his life. I mean, his mom [fashion designer and singer Victoria Beckham] is a very powerful woman. I think he admires kind of what I stand for and he's always like, 'Go do your political thing, Chloë.'"
5 Could It Be An Open Relationship?
There's so much going on in Chloë and Brooklyn's relationship that many have drawn some pretty extreme conclusions. The biggest secret of all might be that they're actually in an open relationship. There is so much evidence for this. They seem to be in a very "on and off" romance with each other, and they're only together when it seems convenient for both of their lives.
There's also the fact that Brooklyn is frequently seen with other women, and we don't really know if it bothers Chloë. Take Sonia Ben Ammar for example, Brooklyn's beautiful Parisian ex-girlfriend, who is a young model. In 2016, the Daily Mail reported that these two were seen together in the middle of Brooklyn's on and off relationship with Chloë. Could this be an open relationship? These types of relationships are becoming more and more common these days, especially among young people...
4 They May Have Dated For A Lot Longer Than We Think
Just how far does Brooklyn and Chloë's relationship go back? It's hard to know. Their official "coming out" as a couple only happened semi-recently, and we only found out because the two started to be seen in public together. But when did it really start. It could have been only a few months before they went public. Or, as some people have suggested, it could have started way back in time, when both were still in their early teens.
There's no way to really tell, but these two seem like they share a deep connection fostered by many years. Could they have been childhood friends long before they started dating? When Chloë talks about Brooklyn, it's as if she's talking about an old friend. For example, she once told Teen Vogue way back in 2014: "What I find really interesting about Brooklyn – and what I really love about that kid – is that he is passionate about what he wants, which is to be a professional soccer player."
3 Chloe Was Completely Devastated After The First Split
Something that Chloë tried to hide for a long time was the fact that she was completely devastated when she and Brooklyn broke up most recently.
She admitted in 2017 to Teen Vogue: "I had to deal with this new level of fame while I was growing up, I was getting out of a relationship and all of it was very public. I wanted to hide."
She also confessed in the same interview that she was getting a lot of support from the people around her at this difficult time, and she said they were trying to encourage her not to give up: "They were like, ‘That’s all great that you want to go away — but you can’t. You are your own person. You’re going to have to deal with this sort of thing.’ I felt like things were falling apart, like my head and heart weren’t in the same place."
2 Madison Beer May Have Dumped Brooklyn
We've already talked about Brooklyn's relationship with Madison Beer, but how exactly did that relationship end, and why? Madison Beer was actually pretty into Brooklyn, and she was frequently photographed kissing him and showing public signs of affection. She also admitted in 2017 to People that the relationship had to end because she couldn't deal with a long-distance relationship, and that she was missing Brooklyn too much when he was away.
But does this mean that Madison Beer was the one who broke up with Brooklyn, not the other way around? From the way she describes the breakup, we're guessing that she was in fact that one to break Brooklyn's heart. If that's true, then Brooklyn might have gone back to Chloë as a "second choice." Could it be that Madison Beer is the girl he's really interested in, and that Chloë is just his "Plan B?"
1 Brooklyn Can't Stop Getting Tattoos For Chloe
Brooklyn is famous for his tattoos, as is the entire Beckham family. Following in the footsteps of his father and his mother, Brooklyn has started to cover himself in all manner of tattoos. It's always better if your tattoos mean something, and many of Brooklyn's tattoos seem to be a direct reference to his love affair with Chloë. Take this beautiful Cherub on his chest, for example. Many have interpreted this to symbolize his romance with his film star girlfriend.
A tattoo represents commitment, a promise that it will last forever. And as Chloë herself explains, even with their "on and off" relationship, they still have deep feelings for each other, even if they don't see each other all the time. During the Forevermark Tribute Event in NYC in 2017, Chloe Moretz said publicly: "We don't need much more than each other's company whenever we can grab it. I think we chose each other... you come back and it's like no time spent away from each other at all."
