After reading a lot of different blogs today, we’re asking ourselves, is this relationship a publicity stunt gone bad?

Seems like these two were put together by their publicity teams in late 2007 after a series of events.  Rihanna was rumored to be messing with Jay-Z, who at the time was dating Beyonce. Chris was rumored to be involved with his much older manager. They both needed something to revert that attention away from those situations and being that they were friends already, it only made sense to for them to get together. We’re sure at some point they really did fall in love. However, Rihanna’s popularity and stardom went through the roof, while Chris’ began to slowly fade.

Here are some other relationships that we’ve always questioned.  Hit us up and tell us what you think:
