VIP Celebrity Facts: Engagement Doesn’t Mean Marriage

When I heard George Clooney was engaged to be married to lawyer Amal Alamuddin, I was aboslutely gutted. george-clooney-600

‘Nooooo!’ I screamed. He should be saving himself for me! I mean, surely that’s why he remained single for so long. Because he was waiting for me, obviously. And now she’s come and got in the way. I am devastated 🙁

BUT, to cheer myself up I remembered that an engagement in celeb land does not always make it to the aisle. To make us all feel a bit better about our own lives, here’s a reminder of the Top 5 ‘Almost Marrieds’

(1) Simon Cowell and Mezghan Hussainy


Simon and Mezghan had a whirlwind romance. He bought her a stunning engagement ring and a £5 million house and then suddenly the wedding was off! He later settled down with Lauren Silverman and has had a child…but he’s still not married.

(2) Bennifer – Ben Affleck and JLo


Ben and Jen  were together for a couple of years and then they starred in a film together, which flopped. Their relationship and engagement ended shortly after.

(3) Arpad ‘Arki’ Busson and Elle Macpherson


Billionaire Arki Busson has two kids with Elle ‘The Body’ Macpherson and he proposed but they never made it to the Church. He subsequently met Uma Thurman and had a daughter with her and proposed, but that ended badly too. Ladies, beware!

(4) Joe Wright and Rosamund Pike


This wedding was called off for the strangest reason ever! Director Joe Wright got into a rage after Rosamund sent out wedding invites without telling him. Ok, the photo on the front of the invite was a shot of them in the bath, but even so….

(5) Daniel Craig and Suki Waterhouse


Daniel and Suki were together for five years and engaged but never got round to actually tying the knot. Then he met Rachel Weisz and they were married in months. Ouch for Suki!

So you see, even if the man you love is with someone else it doesn’t mean there’s no hope, does it?
