Is Monogamy On Its Way Out? 15 Celebrities In Open Relationships

Are we crazy, or are open relationships a thing now? Judging by Hollywood we’d say yes. Here are 15 celebrities in open relationships.


T-Pain went on the record to confirm that he and his wife don’t have an open relationship. They just “sleep with other girls together.” Sounds open to us.

The Smiths

Jada says that she and Will don’t have an “open relationship”, they have a “grown relationship” which means they’re each allowed to stray, but only if the both of them give the OK.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton

Robin Thicke didn’t openly cop to having an open marriage on the Howard Stern show. But when Howard asked, he said “Out of respect for her, we just won’t answer that one.” We’re just going to draw our own conclusions from there.

LeBron and Savannah James

We’re starting to get a feeling that Savannah’s part of a one-sided open relationship. When LeBron was at the White House getting a Presidential honor for winning the 2013 NBA championship, NBA Associate Producer Stacey Klein saw him asking for a girl’s phone number and put him on blast on Instagram. Do you think she’s making it up, or is this the bold move of a man who steps out on the regular?

Wendy Williams

When Wendy tried to shade Porsha for stretching her budget on an 8,000 square foot house, Porsha clapped back and suggested that Wendy’s husband strays on the regular while she stays meekly by his side.

Francois Hollande

Open relationships aren’t just for entertainers. French President Francois Hollande is uncomfortably open about having a girlfriend and a mistress.

Rachel Ray

TV’s favorite fresh-faced cooking guru is married to John Cusimano — a regular patron of the New York City swinger’s club Checkmate. His regular attendance (without Rachel) has made a lot of people wonder if these two (or at least one of them) share their marriage bed with other folks.


The funny lady told Barbara Walters that he and her husband Sidney Hicks have an open relationship. But from the way she worded it, it sounds like he’s the only one who participates.

Brad Pitt and Angelina

Just because you’re open to being open doesn’t mean you have to be. Angelina went on the record to say:

“I doubt that fidelity is absolutely essential for a relationship. Neither Brad nor I have ever claimed that living together means to be chained together. We make sure that we never restrict each other.”

But as far as we know, those two have been too busy raising kids to act on it.

Newt Gingrich

We don’t want to think about this one for too long, but we’ll just say that Gingrich’s ex-wife Marianne told ABC News that Newt pushed for an open relationship while they were married. Newt denied it but we find it hard to imagine the Speaker of the House saying anything else.

Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade

Gabrielle says Dwayne is monagomous, but he ended his relationship with his wife under suspicious circumstances and got another woman pregnant while these two were “on a break.” That’s enough coincidences to make us say “hmm.”

Kody Brown and Wives

This is an obvious one, but we can’t stop watching Sister Wives because we’re so curious about how someone could make polygamy work.

Chris Brown and Karreuche Tran

There was so much back and forth between the Chris/Karreuche/Rihanna love triangle that it’s hard to keep the facts straight. But rumor has it that Karreuche let Chris stray in hopes of making him stay.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

Not all open relationships stay that way. Justin and his wife Jessica Biel allegedly started out getting friendly with other people but Jessica put a stop to it when she was ready to settle down.

Hugh Hefner

We’re not totally sold on open relationships, but Hugh hefner is 86 and we’re starting to think sharing think open relationships may be the secret to living forever.
