I guess when celebs sell their weddings, their christenings and stories of their relationship, then its only fair that these relationships are up for scrutiny from the public. No idea if these two did this or not, but they haven't exactly done badly from having such a public relationship.
Agree, it drives me up the wall when they say they want their "privacy respected" after selling their souls to the media, every event of their lives in Hello or OK etc. Bit like Pauline Quirke now complaining about the media asking about her weight gain after she made a fortune from her Milkshake adverts for a diet Company. Hilarious.
