Many Americans say the news media pays too much attention to celebrity gossip. When asked about the subjects that get too much coverage, a comparable number of Republicans and Democrats, men and women, name celebrity stories as the most egregious examples.
People, Us Weekly, Cosmopolitan and supermarket tabloids have long dominated the celebrity gossip market. Their audiences crave the latest scoops and glitzy photos about celebrities and royalty.
Kaia Gerber & Austin Butler Are Engaged
Kaia Gerber and Austin Butler are legit a celebrity couple — they’ve even reached the “kissing for cameras” stage of their relationship. The model and actor first sparked romance rumors in late 2021, and then made their official celeb couple debut at the 2022 Met Gala where they both posed for pictures together. Kaia looked absolutely stunning in a backless dark gray gown from Khaite, and her beau rocked an all-black tuxedo.
They also supported each other at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of Butler’s film Elvis, where she was on hand in a chic Celine dress. And most recently, they’ve been flaunting their PDA at public events like the Vanity Fair Oscar party and the Time 100 Gala, where they held hands and emanated immaculate rocker-chic vibes.
Most recently, the pair went on a romantic getaway to Paris for Valentine’s Day, and Kaia stood by her guy’s side when he won the Golden Globe award for his performance in Elvis. Now, rumors are flying that the young duo is ready to take their relationship to the next level.
Hailee Steinfeld & Josh Allen
Hailee Steinfeld & Josh Allen make their relationship public by regularly posing together at events, and they also support each other’s endeavors. Even though they have busy schedules, they prioritize quality time to spend with each other, which makes them a happy couple.
In May 2023, the Pitch Perfect actress and the Buffalo Bills quarterback sparked romance rumors when they were spotted walking around New York City together. During their outing, Allen was seen getting out of his car and putting his arm around the star, who wore a white tee paired with jeans.
Their whirlwind romance followed rumors that Allen’s longtime girlfriend, Brittany Williams, had split up with him. The news sparked media attention as Williams unfollowed Allen on Instagram and wiped photos of herself with the football player from her account.
Steinfeld has largely kept her dating life under wraps, but she recently dated Niall Horan in 2018. It’s unclear how long the actor and singer have been dating, but they seem to be very much in love. Like any other relationship, theirs isn’t without its struggles, but they maintain open communication and trust to overcome obstacles.
Gisele Bundchen & Joaquim Valente
Gisele Bundchen has been spotted on multiple occasions with her jiu-jitsu instructor, Joaquim Valente. Their recurring outings have sparked dating rumors, but the supermodel hasn’t been rushed into putting a label on their relationship. In a new Vanity Fair interview, the 42-year-old model opens up about her friendship with Valente and his two brothers Pedro and Gui. “They’re like senseis to me,” she says. “They’re awesome people. They have created this safe space for me and the kids.”
The mother of two — who has been a model since 1998 and has appeared on over 400 runway shows and 1,200 magazine covers — talks about her life after divorcing Tom Brady last year. She credits her divorce as a blessing in disguise, saying that the experience taught her that “nothing is permanent” and that she needs to enjoy every moment of her life.
Most recently, Bundchen and Valente were spotted jogging together in Costa Rica. Bundchen showed off her toned abs in a solid-print burnt orange tube top and khaki skirt while Valente wore green running shorts and a dark blue t-shirt.
Queen Bey & JAY-Z
Beyonce & Jay-Z are some of the most powerful people on this planet. No one else can make the earth stop rotating for a new release or get the entire internet to rally around a baby bump reveal. But that’s not to say their marriage has been smooth sailing. From rumors of cheating to their elevator showdown, the power couple has weathered a lot over the years.
April 2008: The “Love on Top” singer and her rapper husband tie the knot in a super-private ceremony at their apartment. No photos are released, but wedding videos later appear in the On the Run tour and Lemonade.
The music power couple celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary in 2018 with a lavish dinner at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. Beyonce looked beautiful in a yellow Yousef Al Jasmi beaded gown and diamond statement earrings, while Jay-Z wore a classic tuxedo. The couple also brought their daughter Blue Ivy along. After the evening’s awards, Beyonce shared a sweet snap of her hugging Megan Thee Stallion after winning their final award together for their collaboration WAP.
Harrison Ford & His Five Kids
Harrison Ford may be an icon for his movie career, but he’s also a loving dad. The Indiana Jones star has five children from three marriages, including his youngest son, Liam. The pair shared a sweet moment at the Golden Globes this week, but the doting duo usually keeps their relationship out of the spotlight.
The 72-year-old first tied the knot with Mary Marquardt in 1964, and they welcomed son Ben Ford in 1967. Unlike his father, Ben didn’t pursue a career in Hollywood and instead became a chef, co-owning Ford’s Filling Station in Los Angeles. He’s also penned a cookbook called Taming the Feast and owns a Strong Sports Gym in Los Angeles, per Epicurious.
The actor’s second marriage to screenwriter Melissa Mathison brought in another son, Malcolm Ford, in 1987 and daughter Georgia in 1990. Like his father, Malcolm is a musician and once played the guitar in the band The Dough Rollers. Georgia has epilepsy, which her father described as a “debilitating illness” when she was in high school, and supports charities for the disorder.
