With the help of Lena Dunham’s show Girls, I’ve been low-key stalking a Tumblr page called “Old Loves.” The whole point of it is to show you hundreds, if not thousands of pictures of former celebrity couples during happier times. And while I thoroughly enjoy flipping through the pages, I was thinking it would be nice to see more minorities, preferably Black couples from the past. So I did some digging, of course. Inspired by the page, and with my own love of throwback photos, I found dreamy pictures of 15 former couples. Some you may have known about, others who may have just briefly dated, and a few who fell in and out of love quick, fast and in a hurry. Many have moved on and married, divorced, or continue to be single and mingle, and probably don’t want that old thing back. But walking down memory lane is always fun. So check out these moments, and fleeting relationships in time.
Amber Rose & Kanye West
It was all good a few years ago. Specifically, from 2008 to 2010.
When you look at Hollywood it’s very easy to get lost in the glitz and the glamor. It is even easier to see how a relationship can get lost among the flashing lights. With black love being in the state that it is, I think it is always refreshing to look at couples that are making it work. They have been holding it down for years and showing the world, that yes, some black couples do have it together. And hey, if they can make it work through the late night parties and the groupies than there is hope for us women out here trying to make it work out here in the real world.
Denzel & Pauletta Washington
Denzel and Pauletta met in 1977 on the set of a film. They hit it off and the rest is history. They have been married for 28 wonderful years. They have 4 children together. Their eldest son John even plays for the St. Louis Rams. That’s what you call star power. Even though women around the world would love the chance to be with Denzel, you’ve got to respect the black woman on his arm.
While there are no official statistics on Hollywood marriage, a fool can see that the celebrity divorce rate is even more out the box than the already-high one for us regular folk. That’s why these long lasting Black power couples give us the ‘warm fuzzies’. We salute them for keeping their love strong in an industry that makes healthy relationships almost impossible to sustain.
