Ten Most Shocking and Disturbing Celebrity Couples

Olivier Sarkozy and Mary-Kate Olsen






In a move that surprisingly few people have noticed, celeb twin Mary Kate Olsen began dating Olivier Zarkozy, half-brother of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, in 2012. Separated by a 17-year age gap, the pair seems to still be going strong today, spotted recently getting cozy at a basketball game. Although pictures of the couple are distinctly awkward, the French banker is reportedly eager to put a ring on it, but understandably Mary Kate is holding off for now due to her young age.

Britney Spears and Adnan Ghalib






This relationship was all the more disturbing due to the fact that it occurred just as Britney was on her downward spiral in 2007-2008. Ghalib, a paparazzi photographer, was still married when he met Spears. He did not formally divorce his wife until 2008, although he had been dating Spears for some months. However, the most unsettling parts of the relationship emerged later in 2009, when it was revealed in court that Ghalib had conspired with Spear's former manager Sam Lufti to control her affairs as well as informing other paparazzi of her location when she was out. The Spears family successfully obtained a restraining order against Ghalib in 2009, and this particularly unsavory character has since fallen off the map.

Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton









The classic go-to for a disturbing celebrity couple, Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton really took the crazy to new heights, although this is often forgotten due to the prominence of her current relationship with Brad Pitt. Jolie met Thornton while filming "Pushing Tin" in 1999, but she did not begin dating him until 2000, as Thornton was engaged to actress Laura Dern at the time. They married after only two months of dating and became infamous for their over the top antics on red carpets, including multiple episodes of PDA in front of paparazzi, and a particularly unsettling incident when the two wore vials of the other's blood around their necks to a film premiere. Although the two adopted a son from Cambodia in 2002, they divorced unexpectedly shortly after, leaving Jolie to become one half of the renowned 'Brangelina'.

Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchinson







Probably one of the most visually disturbing couples around, Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchinson are no strangers to publicity. The pair met when Stodden took an acting class taught by Hutchinson and were promptly married in 2011. The catch? At the time, she was 16 and he was 51. Vilified by the media from day one, they embraced all press as good press and appeared on talk shows up and down the country defending their relationship — including an appearance on TV show "Couple's Therapy." These days, the pair's favorite pastime is showing up to random publicity events and posing raunchily for photos that might earn them a few inches of press the next day.

Sam Taylor Wood and Aaron Johnson






The huge gap between these two means that candid pictures of this celeb couple usually look like a hip, fashionable mother taking her stylish son out for a walk. They met on the set of 2009 film "Nowhere Boy," which Sam Taylor Wood directed and Aaron Johnson starred in as a young John Lennon. They wasted no time in cementing their relationship, announcing their engagement at the film's premiere. Although Taylor Wood is 23 years older than Johnson, the pair has already had two children together, and the considerable age difference means that Johnson is only seven years older than one of his stepdaughters from Taylor Wood's previous marriage. Talk about uncomfortable.

Ryan Gosling and Sandra Bullock





This particular relationship is less disturbing than it is shocking, as the fact that they were ever a couple seems to have flown relatively under the radar, probably because it preceded Bullock's turbulent and well-publicized relationship with Jesse James. Bullock met Gosling on the set of 2002 movie "Murder By Numbers" and they dated quietly for about a year, despite the sixteen-year age gap. Gosling was not quite the same heartthrob that we know, and it's hard to picture the smoldering actor with signature funny woman Bullock now. However, Gosling has specifically stated that Bullock was one of his best girlfriends (along with Rachel McAdams) and that Hollywood and the media were to blame for the end of their relationship.
