When the existence of their relationship came to be known by the public, it was plagued with rumors and controversies. This was because both were considered villainous for the way their relationship started. However, as the years have gone by, rumors have scaled-down about the celebrity couple’s relationship as news about the closely-knit family they are building together now takes center stage.
