Nelly

Let’s not forget that rapper and television actor Nelly is now on the market after breaking up with singer Ashanti after over five years. After getting back onto the scene with BET’s hit reality show parody “The Real House Husbands of Hollywood,” Nelly is back in full swing as a bachelor. There’s talk he’s involved with “The Game’s” Lashontae Heckard, but since he has a habit of not claiming women, who knows!

Lenny Kravitz

After many years tied to actress Lisa Bonet, singer Lenny Kravitz is still a bachelor. The emotionally-tied divorce left behind daughter Zoe Kravitz and years of memories (since the singer was 23 years old), but now, Kravitz is back on the market.

Keanu Reeves

Let’s not forget about the love we have for actor Keanu Reeves, who starred in the famed “The Matrix” trilogy and other memorable projects, like “Sweet November” and “Speed.” The actor has been on the market and never really tied to any particular companion after his relationship to Jennifer Syme, who gave birth to his stillborn baby and died from a car accident in April of 2001.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Wrestling star and actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is known for swooning the ladies, and as a recent divorcee, he is back to his single charms. Still good friends with his ex-wife and father to his daughter, Simone, The Rock is a bachelor we love to rave about.

Leonardo DiCaprio

One of Hollywood’s best and most notable actors, Leonardo DiCaprio, has been spotted with various beautiful women (mostly models) over the years, including “Gossip Girl’s” Blake Lively more recently, but none have been able to keep the eye of the star for too long. With amicable splits between him and his former lovers, it’s safe to say that this bachelor should never be forgotten.

Dennis Quaid

Actor Dennis Quaid filed for divorce from his third wife in late 2012 after she filed for legal separation between the two after eight years of marriage. “The Parent Trap” actor is now a bachelor once again for the third time.

John Mayer

John Mayer

Singer John Mayer has always been known for being on and off with some of the world’s hottest celebrity women, from Taylor Swift to more recently, Katy Perry, who reportedly called it quits earlier this year, making him single once again.

Djimon Hounsou

After almost five years together and a son, actor Djimon Hounsou and model/entrepreneur Kimora Lee Simmons have separated and the “Gladiator” actor is single once again. In true Simmons fashion, he and Kimora are still good friends and co-parents to their son Kenzo, but when it comes to romantic company, he’s fully available.

Stevie Wonder

The famed Stevie Wonder recently filed for divorce from wife and mother of two Kai Milliard Morris after 11 years in 2012. The 63-year-old singer has been separated from her since 2009 and is now currently single.

"Johnny Depp pf"

Johnny Depp

We all know Johnny Depp as one of Hollywood’s most versatile actors, with starring roles in “Edward Scissor hands” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.” Depp is also known for his way with the ladies, but closely in relation to ex-wife, Vanessa Paradis. After 14 years, the couple called it quits, but the actor still refers to her as “a great woman.” Although they still remain friends, the actor is legally an eligible bachelor.

Martin Lawrence

Actor and comedian Martin Lawrence filed for divorce in 2012 from long-time girlfriend and short-term wife Shamicka Gibbs after 15 years together. Seeking joint custody as a father after less than two years of marriage, Lawrence is no longer taken.

Terrence Howard

Don’t forget about actor Terrence Howard, who had a nasty divorce between 2011 and 2013. Now that the divorce is finalized, Howard is officially a “free man,” back on the market as completely single. Not sure how many takers he has after the allegations of abuse from his ex-wife though.

James Marsden

After splitting with his wife of 11 years in 2012, actor James Marsden is still single and on the market. After his divorce, rumors hit about his post-marital affairs, like impregnating another woman only months after his divorce. Safe to say, his bachelor days are back in action!

Alexander Skarsgard

HBO’s Alexander Skarsgard has been on the market and ready to get off actually, after recent reports that the 36-year old is looking to couple up and finally settle down. Ladies?

Bradley Cooper

Actor Bradley Cooper has reportedly been single since his break-up with British model girlfriend, Suki Waterhouse, earlier this year. The popular actor has also been spotted with actress Rachel McAdams and Zoe Saldana for a hot mnute, but with no confirmed girlfriend, Cooper is still single as far as we’re concerned.

Babyface

We almost forgot that Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds is still on the market after his tumultuous divorce from ex-wife Tracey Edmonds that made headlines and reportedly cost him nearly half of his wealth. Fortunately, the singer bounced back financially and is still creating music, reportedly releasing a joint project with R&B friend and mentee Toni Braxton.

    This is Madame NOIRE right? I’m getting confused with all these white men up here

  • Ifuaskme2

    Come to the dark side Leo……..

  • huh

    wow, I found myself agreeing with everything Maddie said. Nothing about
    being hateful or spiteful, but just agreeing that as a Black woman I
    see waaaaayyy too much panting after the likes of Justin Timberlake, The
    Rock, et al. Men who have never had anything to do with us, yet we
    interview them and ask silly arse questions..then nod in approval when
    they throw us a bone. We really need to be paying attention to the ones
    who pay attention to us! And despite what media tries to portray, most
    Black people end up marrying other Black people! There’s nothing wrong
    with dating interracial, but PLEASE for the Love of Humanity, don’t
    EVER let me see another internet post about “I gotta get me a White boy”
    or read about some Black chick geeking off the fact that some
    White/Hispanic dude dated some halfway Black chick in the past. In light
    of our history, we should never ever be that pressed to trade in our
    beauty for some bullshiggidy mainstream “acceptance’.

  • dancelover51

    This list is soooo inaccurate. The Rock, Leo, Johhny Depp, Bradley Cooper all have girlfriends. Did no one do actual research?

  • goddess8281

    I thought The Rock was dating this young, white, plain Jane looking chick?

    • Maddie

      Yes he is. And why is he on the cover of “Essence” a black magazine targeted to BLACK WOMEN. Rock does NOT date Black Women. He is clueless to our beauty. Don’t get me wrong, You can date whomever you choose. But come on. Essence is making black women seem pathetic–chasing after some guy who knows nothing, really about black women. Read the interview. The chick (interviewer) was so obviously trying to get at him. It was embarrassing. Asking him questions about his bedroom etiquette and if he had ever dated any black women. (His answer was even more embarrassing). Personally I think that was a clue to black women JUST what He DID NOT like about us …Our lips, nose, and skin. Oh and nails….Come on now. He was just straight up lying.’ After I read the article I did research and found him hand in hand with his lady friend. That’s why I said he was lying. Because if he really was into the skin and nose and all those things he said he LOVED about black women, there would be no way in hell, he would date the total opposite–for 6 to 8 years. Ladies–Read the article. This is going to tick off some ladies…but get over THE ROCK. He’s just not that into black. Just like his good ole boy Vin Diesel. And we should stop putting these black (looking) men up on a pedestal; and believing that we (black women) can turn them out. On to the next. There really is no shortage of brothers seeking, healthy long term relationships. And it is time that all African Americans realize that a black or mixed race person can be black genetically, but not culturally. That’s just the way it is. No need in getting our feelings hurt. Once blacks can accept that, we won’t feel the need to chase after people and make them claim something that is simply not in them.

      • goddess8281

        amen. I’m off to read this article.

      • huh

        The only thing I disagree with is that “The Rock” shouldn’t be on Essence. Truthfully, I would like a wider variety of people on these mags.

  • Talullah

    Alexander Skarsgård is very good looking. What about Idris Elba?

  • lala

    Really pissed that rock divorced his wife. Smh.

  • Who I Is

    These dudes are busted! *waits for trey Burke to propose to me*

  • rainydaze80

    even if this list isn’t accurate about their single status, most of these men don’t seem like relationship material: Terrence Howard, John Mayer, Bradley Cooper…

    • PleaseDOBetter

      I’m not sure about Bradley, but I would also add Leo. Leo seems like he is on the George Clooney trajectory of never getting married or settling down.

  • anony

    Babyface remarried after Tracey. A girl that used to dance for Janet Jackson. Even if they aren’t married, they have at least 1 kid together and they live together.

  • Raimi Nicte

    Umm most of these men may be single in the sense that they’re not married, but they’re in serious relationships…

  • pinkee

    Whatever, the rock is not single, he’s been in a relationship with the same woman since 2008.

  • Angelitis

    This list sucks and is not accurate!!!!

  • Beffa

    LOL The Rock is no where near single. Just look at his twitter feed he talks about his girlfriend all the time. Y’all just refuse to do any real research…

    • Denise

      Yes he stated in Essence that they’ve been together for 6 years!!

  • Realityh03$Anonymous….ohwait

    Stevie wonder though? Seriously? He’s a legend but, really? To each their own.

    • ksmall

      was SO thinking the same exact thing! lol.
