Let's face it: if anyone knows the fine art of the rebound, it would be celebrities. You've over there, breaking up with someone and feeling like you're never going to meet another great guy ever again... and the truth is, you normally don't. You're single for a while, sometimes much longer than you want. But celebrities? Nope, that's not their story at all. Sometimes it seems like celebs just have a line of people ready to go the second that they get out of their sometimes very serious relationships. Oh wait, they probably do. It sure seems that way, especially in the following scenarios. These celebrities were not only dating new people but being spotted out and about with them pretty much immediately after splitting with their former significant others. And some of the rebound relationships actually lasted.
Eva Longoria was married to NBA player Tony Parker for four years until she supposedly caught him cheating. Apparently, she found all the text messages between him and another woman on his phone... and he was cheating with his teammate's wife. And they were all mutual friends. Talk about a rough situation. She called things off and quickly rebounded with Eduardo Cruz, Penelope Cruz's younger brother. That fling didn't last too long and Eva purposefully spent some time being single which she ultimately felt like prepared her for her relationship with José "Pepe" Bastón. She has said, "I learned to be content on my own. I think I needed that to be ready for what I have with Pepe." Eva and Jose married in 2016, and now she's a stepmom to his two daughters.
Britney Spears called off her engagement to agent Jason Trawick, and now she's been spotted with David Lucado. Britney and Jason reportedly just went in different directions and wanted different things. A source said, "Britney had a lot of issues with Jason doing his own thing – in business and seeing his friends. In her perfect world he would have been home with her twenty-four/seven, so that was a point of contention; something they were always working on." If Jason was expecting to be out of the spotlight after the breakup, well, that definitely didn't happen. These days, the media focuses on his weight gain and he's been vowing to lose those extra pounds.
Britney Spears was dating David Lucado in 2015 until she supposedly caught him kissing another woman. At a concert, she even mentioned it and said that it's great to break up with someone because she loves first dates. Well, that makes one of us. Apparently, she got another first date: a few weeks later, she started dating Charlie Ebersol and six months later, she was spotted rocking an engagement ring. Britney and Charlie didn't end up making it and apparently he was pretty bummed about the whole deal. A source said, "Charlie has been pretty torn up about all of this. He really thought she could be the one. He is a very private, family guy and saw Britney fitting right in... Charlie really put a lot into their relationship and took it very seriously, so when things ended he was definitely upset."
Jennifer Lopez was married to Marc Anthony for a while and the two started a family together: she gave birth to twins. They ultimately called it quits, which was when she bounced back by dating the younger man Casper Smart. Jennifer and Casper have enjoyed an on-and-off again relationship. She's been asked about the drama that could go along with that, and replied, "No, no, it's not that dramatic. It's like, bye, then we get back together and then, hi." When asked about what she says when her kids ask about where he is during a break, she just says that he's not there at the moment. Well, that's one way to deal with it.
Scarlett Johansson was married to Ryan Reynolds at one point, and when they split up, she started dating Sean Penn pretty fast. It didn't sound like the divorce was all that great, but maybe it's not really possible to have a great, easy divorce. Scarlett and Sean turned out to be a pretty brief thing however and called it quits about a month after being spotted kissing at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. He supposedly didn't want to be tied down. Ryan ended up marrying Blake Lively, and Scarlett ended up marrying her tattoo artist. Sean went on to date Charlize Theron.
Ryan Seacrest was in a relationship with Julianne Hough for three years, but just four months after they broke it off, he was spotted with another woman. Ryan and Sports Illustrated model Dominique Peak were seen getting cozy on a yacht in France and having some dinner dates together. Dominique had formerly dated Chris Pine for a year and was pretty newly out of that relationship as well. So what happened between Ryan and Julianne? Sounds like it just didn't work out.
When George Clooney broke up with Elisabetta Canalis, he immediately bounced back and started dating Stacy Keibler, and that relationship has lasted two years. It's possible that George had already fallen for Amal when he was still dating Stacy. A source said, "George met Amal when he and Stacy were still very much together, and he broke Stacy’s heart. Although he wasn’t looking for love, George started having feelings for Amal immediately. He fell for her fast and hard.” Whether that's true or not, it was fast enough that Stacy might not have been thrilled to hear about the engagement.
Stacy Keibler was in a relationship with George Clooney for two years before they called it quits, and just two months later, she was already dating tech executive Jared Pobre. She made that fact super known and posted it on her Instagram account. The two got serious quick and ended up getting married and starting a family. Their wedding was a surprise beach one. They got their family and close friends to come on vacation with them and surprised them with the nuptials.
Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus got engaged years ago for the first time when he was 22 and she was 19, but they ended up calling it off. The day after that news broke, Liam was spotted kissing Eiza outside of her apartment in West Hollywood, which seems like a pretty fast rebound. Their fling was pretty short-lived since Liam suspected that she was the one tipping off the photographers about their whereabouts. Of course, Liam and Miley got back together and are supposedly engaged again after being spotted moving back in together and wearing her ring again. He's been questioned about the seriousness of his initial proposal since they were so young and since it did not work out at first.
Christina Aguilera was married to Jordan Bratman for five years, but they ended up splitting and just one month later, she was spotted out with Matt Rutler. Christina and Matt were first seen on a double date with Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, and they have stayed together ever since. Christina and Matt got engaged on Valentine's Day in 2014 after three years of dating, and they welcomed a daughter that year. As for when the two will marry, she's explained that they're definitely in no rush. Christina also has a son from her previous relationship with Jordan.
Madonna used to be married to director Guy Ritchie and they are actually still having a custody battle over their son. When the two split after seven years of marriage in 2008, she got back out there pretty quick. Madonna was dating Jesus Luz just two months after the divorce. He was 28 years younger than her and the relationship did not last long. Madonna has opened up a bit about her divorce, but Guy Ritchie said being married to her was like a "soap opera."
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof called it quits with her husband Paul Nassif in 2012, and just two months later, she was dating Rod Stewart's son Sean Stewart. Besides being an incredibly fast rebound, the new relationship turned a few heads because of the huge age difference. Adrienne was 52 at the time, while Sean was only 32. Adrienne claimed that "Age is just a number" but the relationship was short-lived. When they broke up, however, she actually quickly moved on again, this time with 24-year-old Jacob Busch who is the heir to Anheuser-Busch.
Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore announced their separation in 2011. By the time their divorce was finalized in 2013, Ashton had already moved on and was seriously dating Mila Kunis. The two have been together since 2012 and they got engaged in 2014 and then soon after had a baby together. Interestingly Ashton and Mila had starred together on That 70's Show when they were younger and Mila's first onscreen kiss with Ashton was her first real-life kiss, too. Ashton and Demi's relationship reportedly went sour because he was cheating on her. Scott Eastwood, Clint Eastwood's son, actually said that Ashton cheated on Demi with his then girlfriend at a party in San Diego, as well as that girl's friend.
Glee star Naya Rivera was engaged to rapper Big Sean and had already planned a wedding when something went wrong and the two broke up. But instead of calling off a perfectly good wedding, Naya kept the date on the books and married a different guy named Ryan Dorsey. Here's the timeline: Naya and Sean got engaged in October, which is when she chose the wedding date of July 19. Then Naya and Sean broke it off in April...and she still got married in July. There's never been a great explanation for what went down there. A source once said, "July 19th is also Ryan's birthday, making this an even more joyous occasion. Naya didn’t tell most of her friends that she was marrying Ryan Dorsey, let alone that she was dating him! The whole thing is a complete surprise.” The two now have a baby together.
The dust had barely settled on Taylor Swift's breakup with Calvin Harris before she was spotted smooching Tom Hiddleston on some rocks. In fact, the rebound was so fast that it left many wondering if the whole thing wasn't some sort of publicity stunt. But after about two weeks of dating, the two actually met each other's parents. Taylor literally took Tom on a private jet for a 24-hour trip to meet his mom in London... two days after Taylor had introduced Tom to her parents in Nashville. Tom is known to be a serial dater and in the past avoided getting too close to women. When you know, you know? Since Taylor's breakup with Calvin, he has deleted all traces of their 15-month relationship from his social media. He supposedly posted some not so nice things about her but then deleted everything so who knows. Supposedly they are now on good terms.
