Living the tumultuous life of a celebrity can sometimes leave little room for true love. The highs and lows of fame, not knowing who to trust, and the time commitment of their careers can make it hard for celebrities to find and commit the lasting relationships. Although it is nice to find your person early in life, this doesn’t always happen for everyone. Even though society tells us that we must follow a certain roadmap to romantic endeavors, some people defy those odds and life on their own terms. These people also include celebs, who took an alternative route by focusing on their careers first, or having been unlucky in love in their youth. Many celebs that you know and love have finally found their special someone, after years of living without love, or having to maneuver through bad relationships and heart ache.
