What a tangled web young Hollywood has woven.
If you're head is spinning trying to keep track of who is making up, breaking up, making out and going out, then we have a handy cheat sheet for you. While the summer of love dwindles down, the loves lives of Hollywood's most notable young stars have only gotten more complicated with fresh splits and rumored rekindled romances.
From one glance over E!'s colorful graphic, it's safe to say celebrities don't venture far away from their inner circles when it comes to finding love. However, with such close proximity, it also seems relationship statuses can change as often as a new album release or movie role.
Take Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth. Just when the pop culture world was prepared to write them off as exes, they rekindled their romance in January, two years after originally calling it quits, and are back to being a future Mr. and Mrs.
Former flames-turned-official couple Rihanna and Drake had been a rumored pair for almost as long as they've been making music, but it was only after years interspersed with seeing other people, including a rumored hookup between Drake and Hailey Baldwin, that the two singers finally united and let sparks fly on the 2016 MTV VMA stage. "She's someone I've been in love with since I was 22 years old," he declared on live television. "She's one of my best friends in the world."
Just like that, the cat was out of the bag and Rihanna and Drake officially embarked on their unofficial tour of love, including on-stage embraces and matching tattoos.

A similar tale of "Are they or aren't they?" has trailed famous twentysomethings Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner since as early as 2013 when they were spotted on a dinner date in West Hollywood. "That was like the first real time they hung out," a source told E! News.
Fast forward three years and a cozy New Year's Caribbean vacation together, the pair's relationship status remains unclear, particularly after they were spotted together again recently in Los Angeles, albeit with a group of friends at dinner.
As one source explained the sighting to E! News, Kendall and Harry run in the same circle, but it doesn't look as if they're rekindling anything. Instead, they're just two exes dining in the company of mutual friends.
Speaking of exes, Styles' famous former flame—and a central figure in young Hollywood's web—Taylor Swift recently endured her own breakup with British star Tom Hiddleston, her most recent Hollywood beau. The two took their romance across international borders, vacationing in Italy and Australia before Taylor returned stateside only to realize it wasn't going to work.
"Taylor felt he wanted to take the relationship to be too public," a source told E! News of their amicable split. "She was not happy about it and thought it was too much publicity."
The two dated for roughly three months before calling it quits, marking the pop star's return to the single life after years scattered with high-profile relationships, including DJ Calvin Harris and Joe Jonas.
Folks, take a mental picture because, from the looks of the current web, matters of the heart don't sit still for long in the Hollywood hills.
