People were shocked at the romance, which appeared to come completely out of the blue and progressed at an alarming rate. So much so that conspiracy rumours sprung up all over the place, in order to explain the relationship. Now that it's over (sob) let's take a look back at those theories – and where everything stands now.

Writing an album about love would shut down the narrative of her being a boy-crazy serial dater once and for all.
