Do You Know That Celebs Who've Dated Rappers(Party One)
We understand why many celebrities regularly seek love from other celebrities: It'd be difficult for anyone in the spotlight to relate to someone who doesn't regularly deal with the pressures of flashbulbs and tabloid scandals. Here, we visit some of hip-hop's most memorable romances.
Tyson Beckford and Foxy Brown made a very sexy pair in 2005. The male model was even on hand for moral support at the press conference Brown held to announce her hearing loss, but apparently their affection was short-lived: He's been spending his time with stunner Shanina Shaik these days.
Kidada Jones Dated Tupac Shakur
Actress and model Kidada Jones (older sister to Parks and Recreation's Rashida Jones) said she was engaged to Tupac Shakur at the time of his death in 1996. After he was killed, Jones had a tattoo inked on her arm in his memory, although she's since covered it with a flower.
Rohan Marley Dated Lauryn Hill
Lauryn Hill was in a famously tumultuous relationship with her Fugees groupmate Wyclef Jean until around 1996, when she met Rohan Marley, son of Bob Marley. Though Marley was married to another woman, the two started dating, eventually having five children together. Hill has since had a child with another man, although she's kept his identity a ecret.
Kid Cudi Maybe Dated Amanda Bynes
Amanda Bynes fueled rumors that she was cuddling up to rapper Kid Cudi when she brainlessly tweeted, "So turns out i prefer chocolate over vanilla. interesting." The relationship was never confirmed, but Cudi addressed the rumors in "Cudderisback," rapping, "Wanna get up in mind, wanna know about me and Amanda Bynes..."
Eminem Maybe Dated Mariah Carey
Eminem swears that he and Mariah Carey had something going once upon a time, despite her frequent denials. Ever the hothead, Em recorded several dis tracks on the subject. His song "The Warning" included the line, "Wow Mariah, didn't expect you to go balls out /
B**ch shut the f**k up before I put all them phone calls out." That wasn't the worst of it.
Elise Neal Dated Rick Ross
Rick Ross and Elise Neal have been over for some time, but that didn't keep the actress from speaking out after her rapper ex suffered a series of seizures: ”They don’t think about him or his health, pushing him to do all these videos, pushing tours and shows. He is not 20 years old anymore — no one seems to care about him really or overall his health.” Good to know she's got his back.
Diddy Dated Emma Heming
Before she was Mrs. Bruce Willis, Emma Heming was the hottie on Sean Combs' arm. Neither has commented much on their connection, but a 2001 People magazine article lists Heming as Combs' girlfriend. Yep: Diddy rebounded from Jennifer Lopez with Bruce Willis' future wife.
Ice-T Is Married to Coco
One of the most endearing hip-hop couples is Ice-T and Coco, who have shed a light on their fascinating union in their reality show Ice Loves Coco (he does, to be sure). They started dating after Coco told the rapper she wanted a nice guy and he quipped, "If you take the 'n' away from 'nice' you get 'ice,' baby."
Kelis Was Married to Nas
You'd think that a couple that buys a house in the suburbs for the sole purpose of having loud sex would make it, but unfortunately Kelis and Nas' marriage just didn't work out. The pair divorced after four years together, with Kelis hinting that infidelity played a part in their rupture.
Beyonce Is Married to Jay-Z
There's no one who can better understand the pressures of superstardom than Beyonce Knowles, which makes her the perfect pairing for Jay-Z, who has dominated the rap industry for decades.
