Stars take red carpet PDA to another level at the MTV Video Music Awards.
After exchanging vows in 2002, Lachey and Simpson attended the awards show together for the next three years as they promoted their MTV series, Newlyweds. However, the 98 Degrees band member and the “I Wanna Love You Forever” singer’s marriage ended when Simpson filed for divorce in December 2005. The paperwork was finalized in 2006.
More recently, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson made their red carpet debut at the 2018 VMAs. The relationship milestone came nearly three months after Us Weekly broke the news of their whirlwind engagement, just weeks into their romance. They called it quits that October.
Not every celeb couple who flaunted their love at the VMAs has split. Mainstays like John Legend and Chrissy Teigen and Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are still going strong — red carpet kisses and all.
