Sometimes a celebrity engagement makes you go awww; other times it makes you go ewww. Olivia Allin lists eight betrothals that definitely fall into the latter category, on The Frisky:

  • Linda Hogan: Hulk Hogan’s ex-wife, 50, just got engaged to a 21-year-old…but the truly creepy part is that he was a friend of her son’s, and went to the same school as her one-year-older daughter.
  • Jamie Lynn Spears: She was only 16 years old and pregnant when she got engaged to babydaddy Casey Aldridge. Fortunately, they came to their senses and called it off.

  • Tara Reid: Her fiancé’s father implied Reid is a gold-digger—and she probably added fuel to the fire when she refused to sign a pre-nup, thus ending her engagement to Internet entrepreneur Michael Axtmann.
  • Hulk Hogan: Apparently creepy engagements run in the Hogan family, because he proposed to a woman who looks just like his own daughter.
For the complete list, including one celeb who married his adopted stepdaughter and another who married his 13-year-old cousin, click here. (Read more Hulk Hogan stories.)
