They Dated?! 6 Shocking Former Celebrity Couples
Celebrities are a fickle bunch, especially when it comes to their personal lives. In fact, many of them have past relationships that few of us even know about. Take Amy Poehler, for example. The “Parks and Rec” star admitted to Howard Stern that after her divorce from Will Arnett, she rebounded with John Stamos. Weird!

Another example of a shocking celebrity union: Pink admitted to Glamour last year that she dated *NSync member Joey Fatone.
This got us thinking about other stars who’ve dated fellow famous folks in the past, most of whom we’ve either forgotten about as couples, or never knew were couples at all. Read on for some shocking celebrity relationships!
Amy Poehler and John Stamos
After her divorce from Will Arnett, the “Parks and Recreation” star rebounded with none other than hot Uncle Jessie. Poehler admitted as much on on “The Howard Stern Show,” saying: “We worked on a movie. He did a little bit in a movie that I did and a bunch of us hung out. And then later on he’s like, ‘Let’s go get dinner.' And it was fine. I remember thinking like, ‘Oh, s**t. Like, if this is really a date … ’ I think I was wearing a Leslie Knope top. I think I was wearing a shirt from work.”
If you’re wondering if anything more happened with Stamos, Poehler assured Stern she “didn’t ****” him.”
Pink and Joey Fatone
In the June 2013 issue of Glamour, Pink opened up about some of her past loves — and this one was a shocker. “Joey Fatone was in love with me,” she said, referring to the *NSync star. “He took me to Friendly’s on a date and he bought me an ice cream. Such a sweetheart. He asked my dad’s permission!” Between her pink hair and his shockingly bad red dye job, we think they would have been an early red-carpet match made in heaven.
Cher and Tom Cruise
Back in the early 1980s, Cher and “Top Gun” hotshot Tom Cruise were a couple. In February 2008 on “Good Morning America,” the iconic singer revealed that he wasn’t a Scientologist when they were seeing each other, and that he was “just the most adorable man you can imagine."

Natalie Portman and Moby
Um, what? Electronic musician and notable vegan Moby dated Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman back in 2001, long before her “Black Swan” days. They only dated for a few months, but remained close friends after.
Sofia Vergara and Enrique Iglesias
Although Enrique Iglesias’ most famous relationship is with Anna Kournikova — whom he began dating in 2001 — he previously dated “Modern Family” star Sofia Vergara. Back in those days, he was the household name — but that’s pretty much changed.
Tyra Banks and Seal
Before he was Mr. Heidi Klum (and before they divorced and Klum started dating her bodyguard), Seal dated Tyra Banks back in 1996. They made one public appearance as a couple at the Essence Awards, and parted ways shortly thereafter.
