  • Justin Bieber/Amanda Kerr/Orlando Bloom: Call it the attempted punch heard around the world. I definitely didn’t see this one coming – and neither did Justin Bieber. Orlando Bloom recently tried to deck Bieber at Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza, Spain. Apparently, the bad blood stems from the Biebs openly flirting with Orlando’s then-wife, supermodel Amanda Kerr, during the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. But, hey, having one of the biggest pop stars in the world and one of the hottest actors in Hollywood trading barbs over you is certainly a boost to the ego. Amanda, girl, you’re clearly WINNING!

  • Rihanna/Chris Brown/Karrueche Tran: The list would be totally suspect if it didn’t include these 3 young lovebirds. It’s the never-ending saga of “Chrianna-rueche”; grab a seat and some popcorn. Back in 2012, Chris famously dumped Karrueche to resume his relationship with the iconic beauty, Rihanna, and even issued an official statement to the press about the break-up. Yikes! Let’s also not forget the short video that followed. Chris and Karrueche picked right up where they left off after Chrianna broke up. Apparently, Breezy and Karrueche are currently on the outs again. He was spotted in Spain recently partying with one of her girlfriends – ouch! Is it me, or is Karrueche a glutton for punishment? She needs to take a page out of Amber Rose’s playbook and move on. Breezy is starting to show RiRi love again on social media. He also just posted a message with Karrueche as his “Woman Crush Wednesday”…I’m exhausted! By the way, this saga gets upgraded to a love quadrilateral if I throw Drake in the mix  – lol. [Update: Since this article originally posted 1) Chris and Karreuche resumed their relationship, but famously broke up again when it was revealed that Chris had a baby with another woman.  The saga continues…and 2) Kanye’s ex, Amber Rose separated from her husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa.]

  • Cassie/Diddy/Kim Porter: Kim Porter and Cassie…Cassie and Kim Porter. Pride be damned! Both beauties are singing Jennifer Hudson’s rendition of “And I Am Telling You” loud…and…proud. They remain the ever loyal steady eddies for the hip-hop mogul…at least that’s how it appears peeping in from the outside. Diddy is typically photographed on the red carpet, on vacation and all over social media with Cassie; however, Kim resurfaces (sans Cassie) at family oriented occasions such as Diddy receiving an honorary doctorate from Howard University and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Interesting…

  • Ben Affleck/Jennifer Lopez/Chris Judd: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez met while filming the movie Gigli and that’s when the clock started ticking on Jen’s new marriage to Chris Judd. Does anybody remember the full-page ad Ben took out in Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, in March 2002, to gush about JLo’s virtues while she was still married? The parts of the ad describing Jennifer’s “…graciousness of spirit, beauty in courage…real poise and true grace” seem to stick out the most. Oh, and who can forget the line, “I only wish I were lucky enough to be in all your movies.” Bold move, Ben – bold! Lol. Jen filed for divorce that summer and Bennifer was born! The two became engaged, covered gossip columns and wowed on the red carpet. The whirlwind romance came to a screeching halt a few days before their wedding day when Ben allegedly put the kibosh on the nuptials. Both moved on rather quickly – no surprise there. Side note – Ben is one gorgeous movie star, but I’ll join the legions of others who say Ben never looked better than when he was on JLo’s arm.

  • Jennifer Aniston/Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie: I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing the day news broke that Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were splitting up. (Don’t judge me! I’m a pop culture addict.) This is probably the most talked about love triangle of the past two decades. Angie and Brad famously met and fell in love while filming the blockbuster film Mr. and Mrs. Smith when Brad was married to America’s sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston. It’s probably safe to say 2005 was not a banner year for Jen as most of the world joined in on the all-too-familiar chorus of “Awww, poor Jen”. Today, Brangelina are happily engaged and the proud parents of 6 kiddos while Jennifer is set to marry fellow actor Justin Theroux. Wonder who will make it to the altar first? [Update: Since this article originally posted, Brangelina made it official and walked down the aisle in August 2014!]

  • Gisele Bündchen/Tom Brady/Bridget Moynahan: Tom Brady got loads of bad press in 2007 when it was revealed that he began dating supermodel Gisele Bündchen around the same time news broke that his very recent ex-girlfriend, actress Bridget Moynahan, was 3 months pregnant. It can’t be fun getting dumped by your boyfriend of 3 years for a supermodel – especially when you’re pregnant. Tom and Gisele eventually married and expanded their family while Bridget and Tom work together to amicably co-parent their son.

  • Kim Kardashian/Kanye West/Amber Rose: This triangle remained a bit under the radar until Amber Rose outed the situation after she and Kanye called it quits. Amber spoke to Star Magazine, before Kim and Kanye made their relationship public, and claimed that she broke up with Kanye because he cheated on her with Kim. Anybody shocked by this news? Amber dried those tears and moved on to build a personal brand of her own and a family with rapper, Wiz Khalifa. Of course, we all know the rest of the Kimye story. Kim married and divorced Kris Humphries in record time – reality TV cameras in tow. She eventually gave birth to North West and married Yeezy in Italy a few months ago. [Update: Since this article originally posted, Amber Rose separated from her husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa.]
