9 Pairs of One Tree Hill Members That Gave Love a Try in Real Life
Nathan Scott & Haley James are #relationshipgoals. When he gave her that bracelet from a Cracker Jack box and said, “Don’t say I never gave you anything,” we’re pretty sure we died a little inside. Death by swooning. UNFORTUNATELY, the people who brought Nathan & Haley to life on the small screen, James Lafferty & Bethany Joy Lenz, never gave real-life love a try. What gives, guys??
The silver lining: other fan favorites from One Tree Hill did! Yes, the hot people who played Lucas, Brooke, Quinn, Clay, Chase & more dated their OTH co-stars, giving way to major OTPs. Here are nine such pairings:
Chad Michael Murray & Sophia Bush
CMM & Soph hit it off right away, kicking off their relationship the same year OTH first aired. While their on-screen characters had a tumultuous relationship, their off-screen relationship seemed like a dream, getting engaged by May 2004, and marrying on April 16, 2005.
But the fairy tale for Lucas & Brooke was short-lived both on the show and IRL, as they separated 5 months later after Chad reportedly cheated on Sophia with House of Wax co-star Paris Hilton. Their marriage was officially dunzo by December 2006.
