Ever since Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio became the latest Hollywood couple, speculations have been rife about the duo getting more serious about each other by the day. However, the growing relationship has its set of conditions.
A week ago, Leonardo asked his new-found girlfriend to not get any more tattoos until she is in love again and she agreed. a few days later, reports came in that Rihanna has asked her beau to hit the gym and lose some flab.
According to a source, "Ri's got extremely high standards when it comes to who she sleeps with and Leo falls out of this category because he's a lot more flabbier than her usual lovers. She wants him to get a six pack."
This is not the only couple to have made bizarre demands from their partner. hitlist tells you about a few celebrity couples who pushed the boundary a little too far:
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Last year in an interview, The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who has a 17-month-old daughter, North, with her husband, Kanye West, revealed that Kanye has laid down a rule for the couple when it comes to date night. The singer has barred Kim from taking pictures/selfies until they are done eating. "Kanye didn't have a phone for four years when we started dating," she says adding, "If we are eating at a restaurant, we'll wait to do it [take pictures] until we are done eating. He's taught me to take a little time for myself, and I've taught him stop a little more to take time and take pictures and stuff. I think we've both taught each other a lot, and it's kept at a good balance." Well, we don't know about the balanced relationship but Kim being Kim posted two mirror selfies in the bathroom on Instagram while the couple was on date night in December last year. We assume that she couldn't resist. Well, if Kim likes to capture moments while eating once in a while, why should you stop her, Kanye?
Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney
She is a well-known barrister and he a hunk. While many believe that they are the perfect couple, reports two months ago suggested that the honeymoon period for the couple was probably over. Apparently, Amal doesn't like George's habit of munching in bed. A source close to the couple said that the actor has a junk food addiction and his wife doesn't like it one bit and has asked him to stop. "Like lots of guys, George loves munching tasty treats at bedtime. But he's whining to pals that Amal's acting downright appalled by what she calls his 'nasty habit'," said the source. Reports also suggested that Clooney is so tired of Amal throwing a fit that he hides his snacks in bathroom closets and cabinets. With just a few months into their marriage, we wonder what other demands has Amal laid down for the actor?
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
One of the most powerful couples in the world has had their share of demands from each other. A couple of years ago, rumour mills were abuzz with the news that Angie asked Brad to check into a rehab for conquering his drinking and drug addiction because she feared that the actor might cheat on her. "Even though Brad denies up and down that he's still using drugs, Angie is convinced that he's secretly abusing pot and possibly other drugs behind her back," said a source back then. More so, reports also suggested that Brad's then Chanel ad deals further fuelled her insecurity and the actress felt that Brad's pairing with beautiful models might 'tempt' him to stray. We wish the couple a happy married life now.
Victoria and David Beckham
Presently, the stylish couple has four children: Sons Brooklyn Joseph (16), Romeo James (13) and Cruz David (10) and daughter Harper Seven (4). If the reports published in 2010 are to be believed, then the former Spice Girl, who longed for a daughter after three sons back then, demanded sex five times a day from the footballer because she was desperate to get pregnant. A family friend had said, "Vic is desperate to get pregnant and has a timetable for sex. It basically means he must produce the goods whenever it's possible and be on continuous standby." We hope Victoria is content with the number of children she has now.
Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney
Taylor Kinney who apparently cries when he hears his ladylove sing, had asked her to drop her eccentric alter-ego and behave normally around three years ago. According to a source, "Gaga started living and breathing her character 24/7 because she felt her fans wanted that but Taylor has convinced her that he loves the real Stefani (Gaga)." While we agree that it might take a toll on a person to deal with her dramatic behaviour, why would you want to date someone who is a self-proclaimed fame-monster in the first place?
Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil
In what can be termed as an absolute ridiculous request, the late singer's ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil had demanded six million pounds during their divorce settlement in 2009. Reason? Because Fielder-Civil believed that he was the inspiration behind Amy's hit album Back To Black — which she wrote after Civil cheated on her before their marriage — and is entitled to a portion of the royalties. A friend had said, "Amy did write Back To Black when Blake left her, but why on earth should he be getting a dime for making her feel so bad? It's like saying that the man who writes a book about his murdered wife should give the murderer some of the profits." Amy too didn't negotiate and was reportedly happy with his outrageous demands as that helped her show him up to the public. Later, Fielder-Civil dropped the idea and promised to not ask Amy for a penny.
