5 Infamous On-Again, Off-Again Couples


These famous pairs just can't seem to quit each other.

With recent reports of Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer rekindling their flame and rumors that Jude Law is once again romancing Sienna Miller, we started thinking about those couples who love to break up just to make up. Here are just a handful of the most memorable on-again, off-again romances that have been making headlines for years.

Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler – The Blink 182 drummer and former Miss USA were married in 2004 and starred in MTV's reality series Meet The Barkers. Shortly after their series ended in 2006, Travis filed for divorce and the pair famously took to MySpace to air their dirty laundry. In early 2007, Shanna revealed that she and Travis had reconciled, and soon after reports of their rapid-fire breakups and make-ups were all over the tabloids. The couple's divorce was finalized in early 2008, but they got back together again after Travis survived a plane crash later that year. All seemed well until April 2009, when Travis left Shanna, claiming that she had been messing around with Hollywood stud Gerard Butler.

Sean Penn and Robin Wright-Penn – Together since 1989 and married in 1996, the Penns seemed like one of the most solid couplings in Hollywood until rumors of Sean's infedelity started cropping up. The couple announced plans to divorce in 2007, only to reconcile in early 2008. In April of this year, Sean filed for separation but quickly changed his mind in May. Sean then announced that he would take a break from acting to focus on his family—but it must have been a case of too little, too late, as Robin filed for divorce in August. After all the past indecision, the pair seems to be done for good. 

George Cloony and Krista Allen – Although George has romanced just about every woman in Hollywood (and a few "Average Janes"), Krista was the one love he could never seem to shake. The pair dated from 2002 until 2004, and then reconnect briefly in 2006. The couple reportedly tried again in 2008, but Krista finally got fed up with George's philandering ways early this year.

Lindey Lohan and Samantha Ronson – Since Lindsay and Sam confirmed that they were more than friends in 2008, their relationship has been turbulent to say the least. Around the start of 2009, they were rumored to have broken up, but then the rumor mill quickly started churning out tales of an impending wedding (which obviously never happened). The couple "officially" broke up in April but were soon seen out together a mere month later. From there, things just became impossible to figure out, and Lindsay's constant stream of crazy tweets didn’t help make anything clearer. It doesn't seem that these two will be getting back together anytime soon though, after LiLo lased out at Sam's family for allegedly keeping them apart.

Pamela Anderson and Everyone – The former Baywatch babe has a habit of repeating her romantic history, most famously with Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. Their tumultuous relationship began in 1995, when they were married four days after meeting. In 1998, amid Pam's accusations of abuse, the couple divorced, only to reunite a year later. There have been many reports of the two trying to make it work over the past 10 years, including a brief "live-in" situation last year. Of course, Pam wasn't exactly waiting around for Tommy all that time—she married both Kid Rock and Rick Salamon, two men with whom she also had on-again, off-again affairs.
