this is a relatively new shift in behaviour from z-list celebrities,
mainly borne from reality tv shows such as big brother uk.

the best examples of this behaviour can be seen in magazines such as OK and Heat,

they grab the nearest and equally desperate z-lister to "fall in love" with become the new "it" couple.

A style of hooking up where, while everyone knows it's just a hook up, they style of sex is very sensual and intimate as if more romantic and intimate than just a hook up but there are NSA - no strings attached.
They hook up about every six months or so and it's like Romeo and Juliet or Alexander and Hephestain or like one of them is going off to war the next day, they enjoy a little fauxmance but really they're just fuck buddies.
