From Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy to Jake Gyllenhaal and Minka Kelly, look back at the Hollywood's brief romances from this year
Rihanna, Chris Brown
After publicly splitting in February 2009 following Brown's infamous assault of Rihanna, the stars rekindled their romance publicly in early 2012. In an interview with Oprah Winfrey in August, Rihanna said, "We love each other and we probably always will, and that's not anything that we're going to try to change . . . I think he was the love of my life."
