Celebrities can date just about anyone they want, but it seems that even these particular stars can't get over their exes. Moving on from your ex is tough, especially if you were once married and even have children together. We get it, sometimes celebs just can't get over their exes. However, it's shocking to see that they end up dating someone who coincidentally resembles their past love.
Do these celebrities just have a certain type? That seems like the case here, especially for former New Orleans Saints football player Reggie Bush. The former running back went from dating Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, Kim Kardashian, to another Armenian woman named Lilit Avagyan. Have you seen the similarities between the two women? It is actually quite disturbing.
If you've followed any of Katy Perry's past relationships, you've probably noticed a reoccurring trend as well. After her failed marriage to comedian Russell Brand, the "Fireworks" hit-maker moved on to singer John Mayer and later, had a short fling with actor Orlando Bloom. Notice a coincidence? We sure do.
Check out this list of the 15 stars who dated their ex's doppelganger. Apparently, these celebs have a hard time moving on from their exes.
15 Katy Perry - Left Russell Brand For Another Long-Haired Actor
Katy Perry met comedian Russell Brand at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, and the two quickly became an item. They even got hitched in 2010. But after just 14 months, they called it quits. A year later, Perry was seen dating Your Body Is a Wonderland singer John Mayer. The two dated for quite some time, but split in August of 2016, only to reconcile and give love one more try. When that relationship crumbled, Katy Perry seemed to be searching for another man who eerily resembled both Brand and Mayer. Hence, that's when Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom came into the picture. The duo began dating in January of 2016, but split early 2017. We won't be surprised if her next fling looks a little bit familiar.
14 Chris Martin - Can't Get Away From Tall Blondes
Coldplay singer Chris Martin and actress Gwyneth Paltrow, were married for ten years. The couple welcomed two children together, Apple and Moses. They seemed like they were one Hollywood couple going strong, but they shocked everyone when they announced that they had been struggling to keep their marriage going strong. Since their divorce in 2016, it appeared that Martin just couldn't get away from his ex and started dating English actress Annabelle Wallis, who looks a lot like Paltrow. With flowing blond hair and long legs, Martin definitely has a type.
13 Gigi Hadid - Likes Ex-Boy Band Members
Model Gigi Hadid dated Jonas Brothers member Joe Jonas, briefly in 2015 with fans giving the cute couple the nickname G.I. Joe. Once that relationship was over, Hadid quickly moved on to ex-One Direction member, Zayn Malik. The two are still together, but the comparisons between Joe and Zayn are spot-on. From having the same hairdo to even rocking the same outfits, it's clear to see that Hadid has her type when it comes to who she's dating. In an interview with Daily Mail, Joe seemed to be sick of the comparisons. He stated, "It's comical that I'm compared to him. That dude and I have been compared for years, I think it's just funny. To be honest, I haven't really listened to his music, but he can sing well." With Gigi nabbing these two hotties, we'll give her a pass on dating her ex's doppelganger.
12 Reggie Bush - Wife Is Literally Kim Kardashian's Twin
The similarities between Reggie Bush's ex Kim Kardashian, and his new beau, Lilit Avagyan, are bizarre. The free-agent football player dated the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star back in 2007 but called it quits in 2012 because, apparently, Bush isn't a fan of the constant spotlight. After that fiasco, the former New Orleans Saint went on to date another Armenian woman, who can easily be compared to Kim. Her name is Lilit Avagyan and she has the same dark features, curvy shape, and even has same nationality as Kim K. It's very easy to see that Reggie Bush has a type. The women could practically be sisters. Bush is still with Lilit, and they have two children together, named Briseis and Uriah.

Cruise, on the other hand, was reportedly seeing his assistant, Emily Thomas, who eerily looks like Holmes. It also looks like the actor likes to date young women; Emily was only 22 years old when they were rumored to be dating in 2015. Both Katie and Emily have a laid-back look with long brown hair and appear to be Cruise's perfect type. There's no word as to who Tom Cruise is dating now, but we're sure she'll have something in common with Katie and Emily.
