Celebrities like to swim in the same pool when it comes to dating. Who can blame ’em really? If your peers were wealthy artists and entertainers with enough dough to go on vacay at a drop of a dime, wouldn’t you stay in that pool? There’s some celebrities who you didn’t know were engaged or who you may have already forgotten were engaged like…
Adam Clayton and Naomi Campbell
In the early 1990s, Naomi Campbell and Adam Clayton, the bassist for u2, had a hot and heavy relationship which led to an engagement. That phase of the relationship didn’t last long however and they both went on to lead bachelor and bachelorette lives. Neither have yet married although we do know Naomi is now living the life with a Russian billionaire. More power to the man who can handle her.
Diahann Carrol and Sidney Poitier
According to Diahann Carrol, her nine plus year relationship with Sidney Poitier was a tumultous one. At one point during their on-again, off-again relationship, they became engaged but according to Carrol’s memoirs, Poitier backed out of the marriage because of second thoughts he was having about divorcing his first wife (yes, they were engaged in an affair).
Kelly Rowland and Roy Williams
It seemed that they were just too young to get married at the time. In 2006, Kelly Rowland was engaged to NFL player Roy Williams. She later admitted that she was just too young to take the big leap at 24.
Nick Cannon and Selita Ebanks
It seems just like yesterday that Nick and Selita were engaged. They were only 26 and 24 at the time of their engagement. After they broke things off in 2007, it didn’t take long for Nick to move on with his wifey Mariah Carey. When you know, you just know.
Tupac and Kidada Jones
Their’s was an unexpected relationship. He was a “thug” and she was the daughter of music legend Quincy Jones. But somehow they fell in love. We know what happened to their relationship and engagement. Tupac passed away in 1996. Today, Kidada works as a designer and designs jewelry for the Disney Store.
Rashida Jones and Mark Ronson
Speaking of Quincy Jones’ daughters, we didn’t know this little fun fact: Uber producer and DJ Mark Ronson was engaged to Rashida Jones in 2003. Rashida also dated and was reportedly engaged to Tobey Maguire – a relationship which ended in 2000.
Lance Gross and Eva Marcille
This couple were known for their very public displays of affection but all that heat wasn’t enough to keep them together. They called off their engagement in 2010 after a 2 1/2 year courtship. These days, Eva is kicking it with Flo Rida.
