3 years ago

Sometimes the love of our life was right under our nose the whole time and we didn’t see it or it was just not the right moment. There are couples who stay friends after breaking up, but there also times when long time acquaintances and friends end up becoming loving partners years later. In reality, we never feel more comfortable than when we are surrounded by our friends.

Bright Side has come up with a list of 7 famous couples who oddly ended up as lovers after years of knowing each other.

1.Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin

Although the couple didn’t start dating for the first time until 2016, they actually met in 2009. It all happened during a backstage encounter at The Today Show, when Hailey was introduced to the biggest pop star of the moment by her father, Stephen Baldwin. The 2 got married in 2019.

2.Courtney B. Vance and Angela Bassett

Courtney and Angela were school mates at Yale Drama School when they first met back in the ’80s. Things didn’t work out at that time since Courtney had a girlfriend. However, the 2 long-time friends connected on a deeper and more romantic level at the beginning of the ‘90s when they were both working in Hollywood.

3.Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

What is so romantic about these 2 is that Mila Kunis ended up marrying the person who she shared her first on-screen kiss with. The pair met during the sitcom That ‘70s Show in 1998, where they played the couple Jackie and Michael. After that, both went their separate ways until 2012 when they reconnected and their love story began.

4.Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne

Sharon met Ozzy in 1970, when she was only 18 and was working for her father, Don Arden, who was the manager of Black Sabbath, Ozzy’s old band. After Ozzy was fired from Black Sabbath in 1978, Sharon became his manager and this professional relationship turned into a romance, resulting in the divorce of Ozzy and his ex-wife Thelma Riley.

5.Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello

Shawn and Camilla met in 2014 when they were both on tour opening for Austin Mahone. Since then, the 2 became very close friends and started sharing their best friendship moments on social media. This closeness made fans start rumors about a romance between the 2, but they were both dating other people. However, in July 2019, a single Shawn and Camila were spotted kissing at a café in San Francisco and later in the year their relationship was confirmed.

6.David Foster and Katharine McPhee

David Foster and Katharine McPhee first met in 2006 on season 5 of American Idol, when she performed a song that was written by Foster. Shortly after, McPhee married Nick Cokas and Foster attended the wedding as a special guest, their marriage ended in 2014. In 2017, after 11 years of friendship, David and Katharine started dating.

7.Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

The iconic couple met around 2002 when Kanye was making a video with Kim’s friend Brandy, who Kim knew through Ray J, her boyfriend at the time. Kanye didn’t even know who Kim was when they first met.

After that moment, the 2 started to admire each other from afar while both dated other people. Kanye even wrote a verse about Kim in 2009. However, the rumors of them dating weren’t confirmed until 2012, when Kanye admitted his love for Kim in a song and invited her to his fashion show in Paris. The 2 got married in 2014 in Italy.

I actually didn't know how Kim and Kayne met, I don't follow any of these "famous" people.

Most of these stories share similarities: met while dating someone else, married later ?


I love that more and more celebrities have a long lasting relationships. Was never interested in reading "who fell in love with who" and "who broke up with who". Always nice to read about some true love ?


When I met my girlfriend I instantly fell in love with her and asked to date e. We were not even friends :)
