Famous Celebrities Sharing Exes
To paraphrase Gretchen Weiners' famous line: "Ex-boyfriends are not sharing materials with pals " is often accurate. However, everything is a little different in Hollywood when it comes to dating.
Due to the tight-knit nature of Hollywood, many stars find themselves in relationships with the same individuals repeatedly, and even BFFs have been known to share an ex or two.
There are many examples of famous people who have dated their friends' ex-boyfriends or girlfriends. How did they maintain their friendships? Let's find out what's going on.
Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson
In 2010, both actresses were linked to ex-New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez at the same time, and it's unclear who had a relationship with him initially. Also, as "payback" for Diaz dating Rodriguez, it was alleged that Hudson had slept with Diaz's then-recent ex Justin Timberlake.
When they appeared together at Vanity Fair's Oscar celebration in 2012, they put their differences behind them. They even celebrated Nicole Richie's birthday together in September 2016.
Katy Perry and Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift and Katy Perry were friends before their public dispute. Even if the two music singers' bond is no longer as close as it once was, they still share a romantic history with singer John Mayer.
Swift and Mayer were linked in 2009, while Perry and Perry have been dating on and off since they were first sighted together in August of that year.
Nikki Reed and Ashley Greene
On the set of The Vampire Diaries, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder met and dated for over three years. They married and had a kid together after Us Weekly first broke the news in 2014 that he had started dating their mutual acquaintance, Nikki Reed. In February 2017, Dobrev uploaded a picture of herself with her ex and his new bride on Instagram.
"How quickly the years are passing me by. Dinner with the Somereed crew to say goodbye! It was great to catch up with these pranksters. All of my love, "At the time, a Degrassi alum wrote.
Zayn Malik and Joe Jonas
Even after Gigi Hadid began dating Joe Jonas in 2015, Taylor Swift and her supermodel pal stayed close. Swift and Jonas, who broke up in 2008, remained friendly and even went out on dates together while the DNCE member was dating Hadid.
Naomi Campbell and Rihanna
Naomi Campbell and Rihanna are best friends, and both were said to have dated Leonardo DiCaprio at one point or another in their own lives. Following the release of Titanic in the 1990s, the actor briefly dated the supermodel.
On Valentine's Day in 2015, Rihanna and the actor from The Revenant were photographed spending the weekend together, which led to allegations of a romantic relationship. A Campbell and DiCaprio-hosted birthday bash in 2015 even included a performance by the singer.
Jennifer Aniston / Courteney Cox / Adam Duritz
Real People! Adam Duritz reportedly dated Courtney Cox in 1997 before Jennifer Aniston had a brief relationship with the Counting Crows vocalist. There was no rift between the actresses' tight-knit friendship formed while they were both cast members of Friends in 1994.
Selena Gomez / Miley Cyrus / Nick Jonas
As teens, Nick Jonas and Miley Cyrus were together for almost a year before it ended in 2007 due to their age difference. After that, Jonas had a brief romance with Selena Gomez, which lasted for two years. "We never got into a fight. "When we were 16, we both had the same crush on the same man," Miley Cyrus remarked in 2016.
Gigi Hadid and Taylor Swift
One Direction member Zayn Malik has been seeing Joe Jonas since 2015 — seven years after the singer abandoned her during an epic 27-second phone call. Before the breakup, Swift was photographed hanging out with the couple, showing that she didn't harbor a grudge.
Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez
Swift has dated the same buddy many times, indicating that the pool of suitable 20- and 30-year-old celebrities is fewer than you might expect. Taylor Lautner is said to have dated both Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift at one point or another.
It's been said that Gomez and the Scream Queens star dated in 2009, and her song "Back to December" was inspired by their time together. Gomez and Swift are still extremely close, while Lautner is presently linked to his co-star Billie Lourd from his role in The Hunger Games.
Cara Delevingne and Taylor Swift
Swift and a buddy had dated the same guy for the second time. "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer Ariana Grande dated Harry Styles of One Direction for a short time between 2012 and 2013.
Later in 2013, there were rumors linking the English model to Styles. No matter how many times they've been together, Taylor Swift and Cara Delevingne appear entirely unfazed by their past relationship.
Emma Roberts and Dianna Agron
After meeting on the set of I Am Number Four, the Glee actress dated Alex Pettyfer for less than a year and even sparked engagement rumors before calling it quits in early 2011. After dating Roberts in 2008, Pettyfer got a tattoo of her initials on his ring finger.
After that, Agron and Roberts have been sighted together at several events, including the 2011 Met Gala and its after-parties.
Kristen Wiig and Drew Barrymore
While Wiig and Barrymore had been friends for a long time, the fact that the Bridesmaids actress started dating her friend's ex-boyfriend in 2011 caused some consternation among their friends. Fabrizio Moretti, the drummer of The Strokes, had a five-year relationship with the Santa Clarita Diet actress before she began dating Wiig.
Barrymore had admirable composure in the face of the romance. "It all looks crazy and incestuous," Barrymore said in an Allure interview. "Then then, that's how things operate in the real world! [...] It's only natural that they ended up together. I said, "Oh, yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking." Moretti and Wiig divorced in 2013.
Drew Barrymore and Gwyneth Paltrow
The actresses have known each other for a long time and even shared a make-up-free photo in late 2016 while on a mountain-climbing vacation with their female pals.
Neither Paltrow nor Barrymore cared that they had previously dated Luke Wilson — Paltrow in 2001 when they worked together on The Royal Tenenbaums and Barrymore in the late '90s for some time.
Kate Beckinsale and Sarah Silverman
In this case, two women who dated the same man became close friends. Beckinsale has a daughter, Lily Mo Sheen, with her Underworld co-star Michael Sheen, with whom she was in a relationship for eight years. The stars are still good friends and co-parents, and Beckinsale has no qualms about expressing her admiration for her ex-new boyfriend's fiancée, Sarah Silverman.
Nikki Reed and Nina Dobrev
Ian Somerhalder was their romantic partner of Dobrev for many years before they broke up in 2013. They remained friends, and Somerhalder married Nikki Reed, a mutual acquaintance, in 2015. Rumors about Reed betraying Dobrev and kicking her off The Vampire Diaries continued for years before all three participants of this alleged "love triangle" came clean in an Instagram post in February 2017.
In the last few years, Reed said in her caption, "We believed handling any baseless claims with quiet was the best option." "I hope that all the false allegations of on-set jealousy, betrayal, and made-up friendships are finally rested. Teaching girls to hate other girls fosters a generation of women who feel they have to hate other women."
Debbie Reynolds and Elizabeth Taylor
Reynolds and Eddie Fisher were longstanding friends of Elizabeth Taylor and her husband, Mike Todd, who were married. In the wake of Todd's death in a plane accident, Fisher and Taylor got closer, leading to divorce between Fisher and Reynolds (with whom he shared two children, Carrie and Todd) and marrying the Cleopatra actress.
Nick Jonas and ' Justin Bieber
Neither Justin Bieber nor Nick Jonas is BFFs, but they also aren't rivals. At 15, Bieber had just begun to make a name for himself as an artist, and the two first met in 2010. They have maintained their connection, as seen by the adorable photo Jonas tweeted of the two singers together in 2016. An appearance in a BBC sketch in 2016 by the two musicians served as more proof of their cordial working relationship.
However, Bieber and Jonas have more in common than just their swoon-inducing vocals and enviable heartthrob reputation. Both have dated Selena Gomez in the past. During their time on the Disney Channel in 2008, Jonas and Gomez had a brief romance. Since 2009, Justin Bieber has been dating "Good for You" singer Selena Gomez. In 2017, they renewed their romance.
Shawn Mendes and ' Justin Bieber
Shawn Mendes and Justin Bieber got close when Justin Bieber questioned, "Who is Shawn Mendes?" in a radio broadcast in 2015. Bieber has not only spent time with the singer, but he has also praised his fellow Canuck on social media. Mendes' voice "makes [him] grin" in 2016 and "legend" in 2017, according to him.
It's not simply that they're both Canadians with pop star-caliber vocals that tie these two together. They've both had a relationship with Hailey Baldwin, a supermodel. Mendes and Baldwin were sighted together at several concerts and other events in 2017, and Bieber briefly dated Baldwin in 2015.
Anne V and ' Behati Prinsloo
It was only natural that Anne V and Behati Prinsloo, two of Victoria's Secret's most popular models, formed a close friendship a few years ago. In addition to their comparable job histories. Adam Levine has been a part of both of their partnerships.
Between 2010 and 2012, Anne V and Levine were romantically involved. The Maroon 5 frontman proposed to Prinsloo in 2013 and announced their engagement. They've been married for a while and already have a child, with a second on the way.
However, don't expect any animosity between Anne V and Levine or Prinsloo. " Although the model revealed her grief on "Fashion Police," she stated she was happy for her ex and a friend's new romance. "His love for me will never fade. He's such a sweetheart. Then then, we didn't work out, "She remarked.
Drake and The Weeknd
The Weeknd and Drake were great friends before they got into a fight over the same woman. In 2011, The Weeknd dubbed Drake his "closest industry buddy" after the two collaborated on Drake's "Take Care" album and became close friends.
On the other hand, that friendship may have come to an end. Page Six reports that Drake and The Weeknd are at odds over Drake's relationship with The Weeknd's ex, Bella Hadid.
They've been hanging around for years in the same Toronto gang, and suddenly they're forced to choose sides." People on Drake's side were saying, 'I can't show up to that."
According to a Page Six insider, "you have to pledge loyalty to one side. "At the moment, they're not getting along. Because Drake breached the bro rule, the groups are feuding. "They were completely smitten."
After dating for a year, The Weeknd and Hadid quit in 2016. In June, Drake and Hadid were photographed leaving a restaurant together, igniting speculations of a relationship. When Drake attended Hadid's 21st birthday in October, the topic was revived.
Gwyneth Paltrow and ' Jennifer Aniston
One of Hollywood's most surprising friendships may be between Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston. When Brad Pitt split with the actresses, they formed a tight friendship for years.
While talking about Paltrow's style in an interview with Allure, Aniston talked about her influence on her life. When asked if she thought the outfit she was wearing matched the shoes, Aniston replied: "It's exactly what I was going for," she remarked. The way she treats me hasn't changed."
From 1994 to 1997, Paltrow and Pitt had a three-year relationship. Pitt started dating Aniston a year later, and they married in 2000. Before divorcing in 2005, they had been married for five years.
Niall Horan and Ed Sheeran
According to several rumors concerning Sheeran's song "Don't," Ellie Goulding allegedly cheated on Ed Sheeran with Niall Horan. When Goulding and Sheeran were seen holding hands at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, it fueled dating suspicions. It wasn't long after that that Goulding had a brief relationship with Horan, which she admitted to Seventeen magazine.
Goulding assured him, "We're still friends." "We had a lot of fun on our dates. He's a genuinely kind person. I consider him a true buddy in the business since he has a great sense of humor and a real concern for others."
