Breakups suck – even for celebrities. Rather than wallow in self-pity, some celebrities take matters into their own hands and mend their broken hearts with jump-off relationships. The other term for these types of relationships is “rebound.” They usually begin quickly after another relationship ends and they don’t typically hold any long term value. The celebrities on this list have all had at least one rebound relationship; however, almost all of them have already ended. We only have one couple on our list who are currently going strong, but given the fact that it’s a rebound, we aren’t convinced it will last.
9. Nicole Richie and Brody Jenner
After her engagement to DJ AM, also known as Adam Goldstein, fell apart, Nicole Richie soothed her broken heart by jumping into a relationship with Brody Jenner. The relationship only lasted a few months. After it was over, Richie posted a message about the breakup on her MySpace. According to the reality star, her “heart was never in it.” Others have suggested that the fling ended because of Jenner’s love of the spotlight.
