15 Celeb Breakups That Became Love Triangles In 2017

Here are the most infamous breakups we’ve seen this year that turned into titillating celebrity love triangles.

Celebs love to love, and they love as hard as they party. Their love is headline big. But you know what they say about the bigger they are, right? Yep, the harder they fall. And that’s exactly what happened to these celebrity lovebirds when one of them fell out of love and hooked up with another celeb instead. And so these celebrity breakups became celebrity love triangles, and ended with us getting hooked to the news. Frankly, any kind of love triangle is painful only for the people involved. For the rest of the world it is an entertaining lesson. Entertaining because well there’s nothing like other’s people’s laundry being washed in public that you can be privy to. And it’s a lesson because it tells you exactly how you don’t want your love life to play out.

And frankly, Hollywood and its convoluted love triangles have never disappointed us. Remember the time when Brad & Jen became Brangelina? Brad Pitt became the villain for many – the guy who cheated on the completely besotted and gorgeous Jennifer Aniston. Jennifer Aniston became the hapless victim. And Angelina Jolie became this, well, "maleficent" other-woman, who had broken up Hollywood’s golden couple.  So here are the most infamous breakups we’ve seen this year that turned into titillating celebrity love triangles.

15 Amber Heard Moves On From Elon Musk In A Jiffy


After her very public spat and split with Johnny Depp, and after Elon Musk too broke up with his ex Lindsay Lohan, Amber Heard heard that Musk was interested in her and single, and they promptly hooked up. Their whirlwind romance was not to be, though, considering Amber is just starting out on her career and Elon is too busy making more money. So their short-lived romance came to a halt earlier this year. The triangle came because while both of them claim to still love and respect each other, Amber was already seen in the arms of a muscular hunk even before reports of the breakup had died on. As for Elon, he still seems hooked, considering he said, “While the timing might not be right now, who knows what the future holds."

14 Tyga Moons Over A Pregnant Kylie Jenner And Her Baby Daddy Travis Scott


In case you missed the whole Kylie Jenner drama, let’s get you up to date. First, there is Kylie Jenner. Kylie dated Tyga, a rapper who used to date Kylie’s brother Rob’s on-again-off-again girlfriend Blac Chyna. Kylie and Tyga then reportedly split for the umpteenth time and now there are two other rappers who want to date Kylie. They go by the names of 21 Savage and his rival, 22 Savage. Seriously, this is the truth. Both love her and write love songs about her. Now let's move to next man, Travis Scott, who is also a musician. Now Kylie, after having had enough of Tyga, Savage 21, and Savage 22, went one step ahead and decided to make Travis her baby daddy. Tyga is upset and everybody has forgotten the Savages amidst the whole baby daddy drama. The last we heard, Kylie is pregnant with Travis’ baby and Tyga can keep making stupid comments.

13 The Weeknd Chooses Gomez Over Hadid And Indulges In PDA


Until last year, the gorgeous Bella Hadid, best known for being Gigi’s sister, was involved with The Weeknd. Bella and The Weeknd started out in 2015 and finally split up late 2016 due to “conflicting schedules” but apparently Bella is still carrying a flame for her ex. He blithely moved on from the towering Bella to someone he could tower over, the very petite and adorable Selena Gomez. It is said that while Bella managed to avoid an awkward run-in with her ex and Selena at the 2017 MET Gala, she was still hurt seeing their very hot and sweet PDA on the red carpet. So here's hoping that Bella is able to move on, considering he already had even before they had split.

12 Nick Cannon Proved Too Much For Mariah Carey And Bryan Tanaka


After J-Lo famously hooked up with a buff backup dancer in her troupe, we think Mariah needed a similar fix after her so-called engagement to James Packer never happened. So she hooked up with Bryan Tanaka, a dancer 13 years her junior. Whatever Mariah Carey might or might not be, she has set an excellent example of co-parenting her twins along with her ex-husband Nick Cannon. When Mariah snuggled up with Tanaka, what she didn’t count on was his insane jealousy over her close friendship with her ex, Nick. The last straw came at the Kids' Choice Awards last month when Nick and Mariah took the twins. Bryan felt the display "disrespected" him. While the event was on, he demanded that she come home back to him. Mariah flashed her legendary temper, considering she was already sick of funding his lavish shopping and partying sprees, and dumped him.

11 Is J-Law Really The Reason For Chris Pratt & Anna Faris’ Breakup?


So unless you were living under a rock in the Gobi desert, you know about Chris Pratt and Anna Faris breaking up. Some attribute it to Pratt’s newfound success and some to a gradual falling out of love. Everybody celebrated their love but their breakup in 2017 only alludes to the fact that tinsel town marriages are simply not made in heaven! According to a tabloid, though, Pratt’s scenes with Zoe Saldana made his wife very uncomfortable. Here is triangle number 1. Before this, though, Pratt was also linked to his co-star Jennifer Lawrence, and many believed he had an affair with her. Both love triangles, however, are believed to be made-up stories. Or were they? Whilst Anna is reportedly nursing her broken heart, Chris was seen boarding an airplane with a “mystery blonde.” Let’s see who the blonde turns out to be.

10 When Roving Leo Dumps Beautiful Nina For Stunning Lorena


Whenever you’re around Hollywood and spot a scruffy guy dressed in cargo shorts, a slouchy tee, sunglasses, a newsboy cap, an unkempt goatee and a fanny pack, who is accompanied by a Victoria’s Secret model, you have probably just sighted Leonardo DiCaprio. Considering he is a bit of a serial dater, we aren’t sure as to how many broken hearts he has left behind. Past trysts include Gisele Bündchen, Toni Garrn, and Bar Refaeli, to name a few. They coincidentally all have beautiful faces with to-die-for bodies. He has just moved on from his latest conquest, Nina Agdal, with 23-year-old German model Lorena Rae. However, publicists insist that the two are not dating. Nina Agdal, though, might be having sleepless nights. Ah DiCaprio, why aren’t you missing this little gem?

9  Amber Rose And Val Chmerkovskiy Are No Longer Together: Is Wiz To Blame?


After five months of dating, Amber Rose and Val C called it quits, but this came after Amber was spotted on the red carpet in a lip lock with her ex Wiz Khalifa. Amber then took to social media to explain it all: “Wiz and I are a family and we will be family for the rest of our lives for Sebastian. We've been through hell and back so a kiss on the lips for a photo and a night out of fun is not a big deal for either of us. We are in a great place but we are very much still divorced and not together. And the awesome person I got to spend the past 5 months with (Val) and I broke up due to our own personal reasons, but we still care about each other tremendously and we love each other's families even more. So please understand that we are all human and we have feelings too. Nobody got dumped and nothing we do over here is malicious. It’s just how life works sometimes."

8 Scarlett Johansson And Romain Dauriac Are Over 


The third wheel that intruded in ScarJo and Dauriac’s love story was another gorgeous woman. The only thing is that it was Scarlett herself, or rather, her ever-blooming career. Apparently, while Dauriac married a Hollywood star, he’s not so keen to keep waiting around for her shoots to be over. He made it clear to her that spending his life trying to adjust to her schedule was proving to be much too much for him. So she cleared things up a tad more for him by simply filing for divorce and then applying for joint custody of their daughter, who she declared, has to stay with her. Dauriac was stunned, to say the least, and apparently is alternating between calling his soon-to-be-ex a largely absent mother, and trying to reconcile with her for the sake of their daughter. Scarlett, though, calls the marriage irrevocably broken and is ready to be single again.

7 Nicki Minaj Regrets Time With Meek Mill, Who Is Now Dating Her Lookalike


Looking back at his two-year relationship with the 34-year-old music superstar, rapper Meek Mill said, "It was a win. I got Nicki when I always wanted Nicki my whole life. I used to talk Nicki Minaj — remember I had the rap about it? I bagged that. So, that was a win of course. Of course, breaking up with anyone you love is a loss. Period. Game time. Ya heard? A lot of people, it became a little trend to try to hate Meek Mill; I don't know what they were thinking.” Too little, too late, Meek, considering Minaj regrets her time with you, as you just put some rings on your new girlfriend Nessa, who coincidentally looks a lot like Minaj. Also, weren't those rings the same ones you had gifted Minaj at the time? Meanwhile, Minaj is single and glad to be free from the sucker she was dating and is cozying up to rapper Nas. So, Meek, is all the nasty shade you're throwing on social media just a case of sour grapes, or was she just too hot to handle for you?

6 Mel B Dumps Loser Stephen Belafonte After He Was Abusive And Cheated With The Nanny


Stephen Belafonte, a movie and TV producer, has been in and out of marriage trouble long before he even met Mel B. For some reason, Mel B chose to view the man with rose-colored glasses and after a whirlwind courtship, got married to a husband who would for the next eight years beat her, abuse her, exploit her, control her fortune and also become the father to one daughter. It took Mel B eight years to finally raise her voice against this man and file for a divorce that’s turning more and more acrimonious. Stephen has been barred and blocked from Mel’s bank accounts and fortune, so he promptly filed an allowance appeal and also demanded that she cover his legal costs. The triangle angle is, well, the nanny. Lorraine Gilles was the nanny to Mel & Stephen’s daughter, who then had a rip-roaring affair with Stephen, managing to get herself pregnant too.

5 Brandy Catches Sir The Baptist Frolicking And Dumps Him


Brandy had barely started dating Sir the Baptist, and it was all over before it could even begin. While the couple’s relationship could politely be described as a rollercoaster ride, there was obviously a big upset at the birthday party that Brandy threw for Baptist at the Essence Festival. Sources say that Baptist was busy partying with three different women, including his ex, the mother of his two children, and Brandy got wind of it. It's not clear if the other two women had a prior relationship to Sir, who then posted a rather strange Instagram video to address it all: “Hip-hop media, is this where we are? Please use my number before spreading rumors. Alyssa is my homie. I’m saved but if I liked someone I would be on her… Man, this stuff is silly! Let the cyberbullying continue and I’ll continue trying to do all I can to help those who hurt me... I still love you, Hip-hop, despite your intentions to end my career.” Like, huh?

4 Heartthrob Ex-Con Jeremy Meeks Cheats On Wife Melissa With Heiress Chloe Green


Wondering who Jeremy Meeks is? Well, he’s the guy with the million dollar mugshot. He's ex-con with a face that everyone freaked out over, and Meeks soon became a modelling star. Unfortunately, he soon resorted to the old nasties – this time by cheating on his wife. Luckily, she dumped him. And he is now in the arms of an heiress – rather, the Topshop heiress, Chloe Green! The dumped wife, who Jeremy is now seeking a legal separation from, took to Instagram to vent her woes, “I fed mouths that talked sh*t about me. I wiped tears from the same people that caused mine. Picked up people that tried to knock me down. Did favors for those who couldn't do sh*t for me. Been there for the ones that left me. Crazy? Maybe. But I don't lose myself in the hatred of others. I continue to be me because I can't change who I am. Life ain't easy but through the bullsh*t I remain solid. Because I know God's got big plans for me."

3 Back To Being Bachelors: Laura Bushnell Cannot Marry Ben Higgins


When Ben Higgins, one of the stars of The Bachelor proposed to Lauren Bushnell, she was over the moon. And yet she found it hurtful that while he had chosen her, he had famously also said that he loved both her and JoJo Fletcher (the runner-up) equally. “I don’t think I’ve ever talked about how hurtful that was. I always try to be really strong because I wanted to move forward from it but because I wanted to move forward from it, I don’t think I ever really opened up about how hard that was just in terms of, like, I wanted to make that decision to get engaged one time in my life and I felt like I wasn’t told everything that had happened.” So Laura Bushnell and Ben Higgins never really got their happily after, but despite the breakup, apparently, they are still friends. We wonder if Ben is now mooning after JoJo?

2 A Pregnant Eniko Parrish Forgives An Erring Kevin Hart


So this isn’t exactly a breakup, or a celebrity love triangle. In fact, after comedian Kevin Hart canoodled with a woman, someone decided to shoot the whole video and try to make some money off of him. Apparently, Kevin Hart likes to stand by his morals. He can make out with other women while being married with pregnant wifey at home, but he would rather be branded a cheater and a sleaze rather than pay the blackmailer to keep mum. What he did do was record himself apologizing for it all. He foiled the multi-million dollar extortion attempt over the "s*xually suggestive" video and reported it all to the authorities. And then he publicly apologized to his pregnant wife and his kids for putting them through a public scandal for this "bad error in judgment" on his part. The emotional video struck all the right chords in a pregnant Eniko Parrish, who is trying to be brave through it all. While she is willing to work through this marriage, once a cheater always a cheater… The triangle is brewing and the breakup might just be a game of wait and watch.

1 Gina Torres Smooches A Dude While Laurence Fishburne Keeps Mum


So when photographs of Gina Torres gazing tenderly into a man’s eyes and then kissing him surfaced on the web, friends and fans reacted with furor, because she was kissing someone who wasn’t Laurence Fishburne. And Laurence Fishburne is who she was married to, at the time. So once there were negative comments aplenty on the web, Gina Torres, like a true lady, simply confirmed what many already knew, “'With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year. There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected. Happily, however, our family remains intact and we will continue to raise our daughter together with love and joy and awe. As well as raise each other up with respect and love and the continued understanding that we’re in this together, if not side by side.” This is how it is done correctly, folks. Watch and learn.
