But, they were the couple that was meant to be and fate played its hand as they met during the set of Bad Influence when Sheryl ended up being Lowe's make-up artist. Their relationship was not easy and they had to face many obstacles, most of which were due to Lowe's alcohol addiction and commitment issues.
