With certain celebrities, sometimes the line between business and pleasure has become blurred. These stars ended up dating or even marrying their managers.
2014 was a big year for Kelly Rowland. Not only did she become a wife, she became a mother as well. The former Destiny’s Child member started dating manager Tim Weatherspoon in 2011. Two years later he asked her to be his wife via Skype. Last May, the couple tied the knot with a destination wedding in Costa Rica. A few months later Rowland gave birth to their son Titan.
In this day and age when the paparazzi can follow a celebrity to the ends of the earth and stars have a tendency to overshare on social media, these famous couples managed to keep their relationships on the hush — for the most part.
Keisha Knight Pulliam and Big Tigger
Several years ago, there was speculation that Keisha Knight Pulliam was romantically involved with Big Tigger. The rumor circulated online for several months and it was finally confirmed when the former Cosby kid took to twitter to wish the radio personality a happy birthday. “Happy Birthday My Love… My partner in life, love & silliness @bigtiggershow !!!” she tweeted. Soon after, the duo stepped out together as a couple to attend an event and that was pretty much the first and last we heard of them.
After slamming his wife, Gloria Govan, on social media last week, Matt Barnes is offering an apology. The change of heart came after Matt shared a Throwback Thursday image of himself and Gloria. In the post, he referred to her as his “EX queen.” He followed up with a post apologizing to his estranged wife.
According to the Los Angeles Clippers forward, he was completely out of line when he called out his estranged wife last week. His post reads:
“Let me try & kill this b4 the blogs run with it.. I made a mistake by putting ‘EX’ in my original post.. Matter of fact I’ve been out pocket lately w/a few comments I’ve [made] on social media about Glo, when I’m wrong I can admit it..!
There’s no book for this, as a man it’s hard to see the woman you will always love & the mother of my children act out, people start attacking her & that pisses me off so instead of helping, I lash out at her, which makes it worse.. But a man’s PRIDE.. Is a mothaf-cker!
If you know me you know I’ve never held my tongue & that’s been a gift & course.. We both realize now…., that once we opened our lives up to reality TV life would never be the same.. Some good some bad came w/that!
With that being said the point of the pic was to show that she’s bad AF & besides my tight a$$ white pants ya boy looked good too!!! When I posted this my thoughts were, ‘we goin thru it, but when we were 2gether $hiiiiiiiiit fight it if you want we was one of the #BaddestCouple out there’….! Hahaaaa For all those who’ve been supportive w/prayers & positive comments, trust they don’t go unnoticed, I really do appreciate the love & support..
I’ve always prided myself on being real, because I play in the NBA makes me no different [than] YOU, anyone who knows me knows that’s how I’ve always been.. So my IG is really MY LIFE, my thoughts feelings & emotions, my beautiful children, my family, my friends my UPS my DOWNS.. What you see on IG is me, so if you follow me put ur seatbelt on & lets go.. If you don’t like wat I post it’s easy unfollow, I can’t sit here & say I’m NOT GONNA ACT OUT AGAIN, but that’s a lie & I’m real enough to admit that.. I care about my job, I’m blessed to have gotten 12yrs in this game & hopefully a few more, but make no mistake I’ll die or kill for Gloria Isaiah & Carter, that’s my family & NO MATTER WHAT WILL ALWAYS BE MY FAMILY!! #RUNTELLDAT #BLOGTHAT Hv a good one.”
Hopefully these two can figure out a way to work their stuff out behind closed doors.
Over the summer, many of us were shocked to hear whispers about the separation between Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. But what started out as a rumor was soon proven to be factual when the actor had his infamous “Mariah” tattoo covered. After months of wondering whether or not the estranged couple would find a way to work through their differences, we’re sad to report that Nick Cannon has formally filed for divorce.
According to TMZ, the papers were filed on December 12. It’s unclear whether or not Mariah has responded to his filing yet, but according to some who claim to have knowledge of the split; the two have been hammering out the details of the divorce with their lawyers for quite some time now.
It’s also interesting to note that just a few weeks ago, Nick lashed out over reports that he’s in the process of recording an entire diss album dedicated to his ex-wife.
“I will never say anything negative about Mariah Carey,’ he tweeted. ‘We are forever a family rooted in love.”
And while Nick has been doing most of the talking, Mariah hasn’t publicly uttered a word about the split. We were hoping that they would be able to find a way to work things out, but hopefully this divorce will mean a fresh start for the both of them.

It looks like Tamera Mowry and her husband, Adam Housley, aren’t the only ones who are expecting a new baby in July 2015. Golden State Warriors player Stephen Curry recently announced that his wife, Ayesha Curry, is pregnant with their second child.
“Didn’t think it was possible but my #WCW just got even sexier! Baby #2 on the way,” the athlete announced on Instagram. “Been blessed beyond belief already and I praise Him daily! God is great!”
The couple have been item since 2008 and have been married since 2011. They currently share one daughter, Riley Curry, who Ayesha says Stephen is an amazing father to.
“He’s so hands on, he’s fantastic, he learned from the best — his dad’s amazing, so you know the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” she told NBC Bay Area.
If you like something why stop doing it right? We guess that’s the mindset these stars had when they walked down the aisle, two, three, seven, and even 10 times to marry folks they loved…or lusted. Check these celebrities with the most marriages in wedding history.
For celebrity couples, it seemed like 2014 was the Year of the Spilt. We were shocked when Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon threw in the towel and Nicki Minaj became single for the first time in 15 years, but we were absolutely floored when after 19 years of marriage Chris Rock filed for a divorce from his wife Malaak. Here are some couples we are hoping stay together through 2015.
Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz
When Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz got together, the timing was a little murky because the hit-making producer was also a married man. A lot of people believed that Keys was a homewrecker while others feared Swizz Beatz would do to the “Fallin” singer what he did to his first wife. But after a few years of wedded bliss, the couple couldn’t be happier. They ended 2014 by welcoming their second son together and we want to see many more years like that.
It looks like there may be another celebrity couple on the block. Singer and songwriter Sevyn Streeter recently made a post on Instagram that has us all wondering what’s going on between her and fellow musician B.O.B. Yesterday, for social media’s beloved Man Crush Monday, the “It Won’t Stop” singer dedicated a post to the rapper, saying:
“#MCM @bobatl I found you, crowned you, turned you on…..So you know, I got what you want….
Let’s be undeniable….Here’s to 2015 Bobby
Of course, you don’t have to be in a relationship with your Man Crush Monday, but those last lines about being “undeniable” and “Here’s to 2015 Bobby” have us wondering if this is a bit more than just a crush. The pair has been hanging pretty tough since at least November; however, only time will tell what’s happening and where this is heading.
Do you think they make a cute couple?

The holidays are a time for togetherness but instead of spending Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s with each other, these celebrity couples called it quits.
Chris and Malaak Compton Rock
Chris and Malaak Compton Rock have been married for almost two decades but just days after Christmas, the comedian announced that he and his wife had decided to separate. Rock filed for a divorce and in court documents he has requested joint custody of their two daughters. This isn’t the first time the “I Think I Love My Wife” star and Malaak decided to break up. Rock filed the papers for a divorce back in 2006 but the couple reconciled. The 49-year-old funnyman has been rumored to be dating his “Top 5” co-star Rosario Dawson.
Social media is the gift and the curse of this generation. Of course, it has its positives, but when people use it as a means of measuring the value of real life relationships or to air out personal issues, I truly begin to wonder whether we’d be better off without it.
Yesterday, one of those more personal messages, which should’ve probably remained a thought or private conversation as opposed to an Instagram post, was shared by Mickey “MempHitz” Wright, the husband of former reality star Toya Wright. In the post, the former industry executive seemed to allude that he and Toya are experiencing trouble in their marriage after he posted a photo of what appears to be Toya’s engagement ring sitting in a glass.
“All I’ma say is this public marriage thing ain’t for every1,” he captioned the image. “Sh-t is hard. but when love let u down u let love go. who do I
trust? who do I depend on? ME! Thas Who! just be happy.
happy f-kin new year.”
He also shared another image with a caption that reads:
“love lost. life is life.”
Of course, all couples experience their share of issues at one point or another, but if saving the relationship is the goal, alerting the world that you’re having a hard time through social media probably isn’t the best move.
So far, Toya has not publicly acknowledge her husband’s comments. Whatever the situation is, we’re hoping that they’re able to work it out.
