We’ve all heard the saying, “Bros before hoes” and that can apply to female friends as well. A true friendship can withstand just about anything. But what happens when your bestie starts dating someone you don’t like or you just can’t get along with? Or what if the new boo isn’t the right person for your friend? Do you suck it up and stay silent or do you say something? These celebrity friendships were tested when a new relationship was formed. Here are a few celebs who don’t get along with their friends’ boos.
I root for Drake. And I’d like to see him happy. A large part of me thinks that Drake would like to be in a nice, committed relationship…eventually, you know when all the dust has settled. Seems like he tried to do that with Rihanna…twice.
But that didn’t work out.
Well, the Champagne Papi has moved on. Not only is he dating someone new, he’s taking her on trips with him overseas.
Drake was in Australia for the Future Music Festival this past weekend. And in addition to taking care of business on stage, he also made time for a little pleasure. The paparazzi snapped a few shots of the rapper and some young lady enjoying themselves by the pool.
So who is she?
Meet Bernice Burgos, a 34-year-old Puerto Rican model, bartender and video vixen. If you’ve been studying your music videos, you may have seen Bernice in J. Cole’s “Work Out” video or Rick Ross’ “Diced Pineapple” alongside Wale and Drake.
This is not the first time these two have been spotted together. Back in 2013, when she was tending bar at the Starlets strip club, she posted a picture of herself and Drake together, calling him her homeboy.
But based on these new pictures…things done changed.
Then, Drake shouted her out in the 2014 Romeo Santos song “Odio”:
No you- you look like Bernice and Yaris
But both put together, those are some girls that I know from back home
If you saw ‘em you’d get it.
It’ll be interesting to see if this is indeed a full fledged relationship or…you know…just something of a more temporary nature.
Good luck to both she and Drake…because his track record hasn’t exactly been free of mess.
Just because the relationship is over, doesn’t mean that the love is gone; but should it? Here are a few celebs who are super close with their exes…probably too close if you let their new loves tell it.
Sean “Diddy” Combs
For a while, it looked as if Sean “Diddy” Combs would eventually settle down with his longtime girlfriend and baby mama Kim Porter. The couple was together for over a decade and their love even survived Diddy’s romance with Jennifer Lopez. But when the Bad Boy Records CEO had a baby with another woman while Porter was pregnant with their twins, she was through. Diddy and Porter finally called it quits for good and even though he’s moved on with Cassie, the two remain friends to co-parent their children together. Diddy, Porter and their brood spend their Christmas vacation on a yacht in St. Barts.
Honestly, I’m still waiting to see what’s going to happen with this Erica Mena and Bow Wow engagement. There is quite a bit of skepticism surrounding these two. One minute Erica, (Whenever I say Erica Mena’s name, I always hear Cyn’s whiny voice in my ear.), was with Rich Dollaz, then Cyn Santana and then, seemingly overnight, she was not only dating Bow Wow, the two were engaged to be married.
Life comes at you fast, huh?
We never know how the cookie will crumble in Hollywood relationships, so I’m not going to damn them or their love, I’ll just say it’s interesting.
In this day of social media proclamation, Erica and Bow Wow are forever making their love known all over each other’s social media pages. There are photos of the two in bed together, cute videos with sexual innuendos and gushing comments about who and what they are to each other. And in a recent interview with Rolling Out, the “Love and Hip Hop New York” star opened up about her relationship, talking about how Bow Wow tamed her, what real men like in a woman and what she wants her legacy to be as a woman, wife and mother.
Check out the highlights.
How can she be ready to get married when she was just with Cyn?
People have misconceptions about everyone I’ve dated. Last year, it’s like “oh, all of sudden, she’s gay.” No, I’ve been bisexual. In the past, I’ve been very open and affectionate towards females. It’s definitely no secret. At that point, I was dating a woman and brought her on the show.
How she and Bow fell in love
When that whole “106 & Park” kiss happened, we were both seeing other people and that kiss put us in the doghouse. So we were kind of confiding in each other. I realized that he is a man who really knows me and I’ve never had someone to fully accept me for who I am, flaws and all. I think it just happened naturally with us. We were at that point of really wanting to settle down, but the people that we were with at the time just weren’t fitting us. So it just happened and I discovered that this was the person that I was really supposed to be with.
What does she say to people who think this is a publicity stunt?
I think people are trying to put pieces together in other people’s lives so much that they are not living their own life. Cyn and I have been broken up for a while, I just hadn’t publicly come out about it because I’m on reality television. So to keep you tuned in, I had to keep things under wraps. So in this season of “Love & Hip Hop,” there’s a lot of catching up for the fans to do. And I think they will see how everything transpired and will get a better understanding.
Bow Wow’s sex game
Being with Bow [Wow], he’s so dominating and that just turns me on because I’m usually the dominating one. I’m a Scorpio, so I call the shots. It’s different to have someone that you can finally be submissive to. So dealing with a woman like me, it’s kind of like, ‘can she be tamed?’ It’s all a matter of, are you man enough to tame the woman. And there’s a way to be assertive, but still give that embraceable nature that makes a woman kind of be submissive to you, that’s very powerful. But in order for a man to feel like a man, a woman has to give him the most respect. But in order for the woman to give you that respect, you kind of have to demand it and make her embrace you for what you are doing to her for her to respect you. So it’s a catch-22. I think men are scared of being men these days.
A little Rich Dollaz jab
From my last relationship with ‘B—- Dollaz’ [Rich Dollaz], he was just one of those dudes who would always run home to his mama. You know, it just shows that you’re a punk at that point. And that also goes for respect. You can still be a man and have authority and get your point across without being disrespectful. I think a man should “think like a man.
What do men respect about women?
Men love women who aren’t babies, who don’t nag and you don’t have to stroke their egos. You just kind of have to be sure of yourself. If you feel good, I’m telling you every man in America will know you’re feeling good.
How she wants to be remembered
In my career, I want to be known as the girl who was crazy enough to go for it and brave enough to get it done. In my personal life, I want to be the one who takes care of everybody. And in my marriage, I want to be that wife that my husband can really rely on for everything. I don’t want it to ever get to a point where my husband can’t be honest with me, or that he isn’t sexually into me. As a mom, I want to be that mother that steers her children to be whatever they want to be, but also lets them know that the world will never give them anything. So when they grow up, they can come back and say, “mom, you were right.”
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.
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.
Things happen quickly in Hollywood and these stars didn’t let breakups keep them down for long. Just months after horrible breakups and bitter divorces, these stars went on to have some of the shortest celebrity rebounds on record. You won’t believe how quick the record holder is.
Mr. Cannon broke of his engagement to Selita Ebanks in October of 2007 and was married to Mariah Carey just six months later.
You remember what your mama told you, “Don’t sh*t where you eat.” In case, you never knew what that meant, basically don’t date anyone you work with because you’ll have to come back to that spot and it might stink or be incredibly messy. That saying is so true. But a whole hell of a lot of people meet folks at work. Some of these celebrities met their significant others at work while others didn’t. But all of these people ended up working with people they once dated. See who I’m talking about.
Is there something fishy about Bey and Jay? Do you believe that Riff Raff and Katy Perry are really in love? Some of these celebrity couples seem off to us. Is this real love? Or a match made in PR heaven?
Beyonce and Jay-Z
Sometimes it feels like these two make too much sense together for their billion dollar brands not to be involved.
And the rumor that their marriage is on the rock is making a lot of fans wonder if this isn’t a manufactured relationship that has reached the end of its shelf life.
The last time we were speaking about Tyga and Blac Chyna, as a couple, we were telling you about the pair welcoming their son King Cairo Stevenson into the world.
But that was way back in 2012. And though the couple, who’ve been together since 2011, were engaged in December of 2012, things seem to have shifted.
According to TMZ, a source claims that they’ve called off their wedding. And though the reason is unknown at this point, Tyga is believed to be the one who called it off.
The source told TMZ that Blac Chyna is in denial about their relationship ending and refuses to acknowledge it.
Apparently, Tyga hosted two pool parties at the home they once shared, recently, (including the one where he was instructing an underaged Kylie Jenner to take a shot) and Blac Chyna was not invited to either one of them…Which is quite interesting, if it is indeed true because it’s Blac Chyna who’s friends with the Kardashian family.
And while Blac Chyna hasn’t issued a statement or anything, there is an image of her pumping gas on her Instagram that she captioned “Somebody got [to] do it.” And the two haven’t been seen together on Blac Chyna’s Instagram since Kim and Kanye’s wedding back in May. It would be a trip if he stayed with her just long enough to get that invite…
That could be pretty telling. Who knows?
I’m sure one or both of them will speak on it sooner or later. If your relationship lives in the public, it must die there as well.
