Where They Do That At? Celebrities Who Married Their Jumpoffs
Peter Gunz may be scandalous, but he’s not alone. Hollywood is full of stories of men turning their side piece into their wife. Read on to find out how the wives in these men’s lives got demoted from first class to coach, only for their men to turn around and marry their jumpoffs. There are a couple ladies who pulled that move too.
Replacing your main girl with your jumpoff is a triflin move. That goes double when your main girl is eight months pregnant. When Tiki left his wife for an NBC intern, execs were so disgusted they fired Tiki from his job as an on-air analyst and commentator. But Tiki didn’t let them slow him down, he married his jumpoff in 2012.
We all fell out of our chairs when we heard that Amina Buddafly wasn’t just Peter’s jumpoff but his wife. He may be the first man in the world to marry his sidepiece while still living at home with his main girl and the mother of his children.
Sometimes the sidepiece is behind the upgrade. Before Peter Gunz hit the scene, Stevie J surprised us all and accepted Joseline’s marriage proposal and (officially at least) closed the chapter on Mimi Faust.
When Swizz Beats got ready to kick Mashonda to the curb, she saw it coming. But despite her pleas for Alicia Keys to leave her family alone, Swizz Beats divorced her and married Alicia in 2010.
Wifing the sidepiece isn’t just a man’s game. Jennifer Lopez met Ben Affleck on the set of Gigli just nine months into her marriage to her back-up dancer Cris Judd then she tried to pull a real quick switcheroo. Her divorce was finalized in 2002 and she and Ben almost got married in 2003 but they called the wedding off hours before the ceremony.
Jennifer wasn’t done just yet. In 2003, right after her failed engagement to Ben Affleck, Lopez started dating Marc Anthony — while he was married to his wife Dayanara Torres. Marc and Jennifer got married in June 2003, a week after Marc’s divorce was finalized.
The “Preachers of L.A.” star’s wife was blindsided when she found out that he was leaving her after 15 years for the jumpoff that he got pregnant. Deitrick married Dominique Mctyer in July of 2013.
Kevin was engaged to his pregnant girlfriend Shar Jackson in 2003 when he met Britney Spears. He married his meal ticket three months after meeting her and the marriage lasted nearly two years.
When Kim Kardashian was engaged to Kris Humphries, Kanye West was her jumpoff. Kim managed to walk down the aisle with Kris but ran off hours later and was pregnant with her jumpoff’s baby before her divorce was finalized.
Poor Bridget Moynahan is another woman on our list who found out being pregnant won’t keep you safe from getting the boot. Tom Brady met his model jumpoff Gisele Bundchen while his ex was carrying his first son and didn’t hesitate to hand her walking papers and marry Gisele a little while later.
Sometimes the jumpoff is right under your nose. Uma Thurman’s husband Ethan Hawke was sleeping with their children’s nanny. When Uma found out she left him and he filled the void by marrying the nanny a few years later.
Sometimes losing a man to a jumpoff isn’t the worst thing. Mel Gibson traded in his 30-year marriage to Robyn Moore Gibson for his new girl Oksana Grigorieva. A little while later, he left his pregnant fiance Oksana in a raging racist message that made us think Robyn was glad he was gone. Oksana is now raising Mel’s kid alone and Robyn is living comfortably with a $400 million divorce settlement.
Camille was starring in the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” when Kelsey met a flight attendant named Kayte Walsh. Two weeks after Camille and Kelsey’s bitter 2011 divorce, Kelsey and Kayte got married and they now have two kids together.
Billy Bob Thornton
Billy Bob Thornton’s girlfriend Laura Dern said that she got replaced by jumpoff Angelina Jolie so quickly it made her head spin: “I left our home to go and make a movie, and while I was away my boyfriend got married, and I never heard from him again”. Angelina and Billy Bob married in 2000. Sound familiar?
