Celebrity Side Chicks Who Get The Side Eye
It’s takes a certain type of woman to play the side chick and apparently these celebrity women are that type because they were quite comfortable (or were unknowingly) playing the position of the other woman.
K. Michelle has always been very open and honest. And her latest interview has a lot of people wondering if she and Idris Elba had a thing going on. While having a candid chat with blogger Necole Bitchie, the “Can’t Raise A Man” singer revealed that she was a side chick for a man who was expecting a baby with another woman. Some of the hints she dropped have many thinking that K. Michelle’s secret lover was Idris Elba. They worked together recently on her “Rebellious Soul Musical,” which he directed for the freeski.
K. Michelle wasn’t the only “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” member that has been the other woman. We all laughed when Joseline Hernandez declared that the side chick was the new wife but she’s the one laughing now. The Puerto Rican Princess joined the show as Stevie J’s side chick and was proud of it. She slowly but surely worked her way up to the main chick and after Stevie J ended things with his baby mama Mimi Faust for good, he made an honest woman out of Joseline.
They say what goes around, comes around and “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s” Mimi Faust is living proof of it. Before she was the one crying from a broken heart caused by Stevie J and his philandering ways, she was the one he was creeping with. Faust has been with the one-time hit-making producer on and off for well over a decade and she admitted that when Stevie J was in a relationship with Eve, the “What Y’all Want” rapper found her in bed with her man.
We may love her to death but Fantasia still played the role of the side chick. Although she swore up and down she didn’t begin a relationship with Antwaun Cook until after he was officially separated, his wife said otherwise and even sued the “Free Yourself” singer for alienation of affection. Fantasia gave birth to Cook’s son but he eventually went back home to his wife and children for good.
When Biggie Smalls was gunned down in L.A. back in 1997, the hip-hop community suffered a loss but few people were as hurt as Lil Kim. Biggie took the “Put Your Lighters Up” rapper under his wing and became her mentor. But everyone knew there was a lot more going on between them than just a professional relationship — including his wife Faith Evans. Faith infamously caught the two in bed together and chased Lil Kim out of her home.
To hear Mashonda Williams tell it, Alicia Keys was the side chick who got the man. Swizz Beats famously left Williams and their baby for the R&B singer. They kept their relationship on the low before finally coming out as a couple. A broken-hearted Williams was public about her feelings towards her ex-husband and his new wife but eventually the bad blood between the two parties was settled. Williams was spotted on vacation in St. Barth’s with her ex-husband and his new family earlier this year.
Nobody has played the position of on and off girlfriend/side chick better than Rihanna. She broke up with Chris Brown after he violently attacked her back in 2009. They had both moved on with other people but after the restraining order was amended, Rihanna and the “Kiss Kiss” singer rekindled that old flame. Even though he was in a relationship with Karrueche Tran. Brown bounced back and forth between the two and RiRi loved flaunting their hookups on social media in Tran’s face. Tran waited it out for Brown and Rihanna’s romance to flicker out permanently.
Whatever a supermodel wants, a supermodel gets. Gisele Bundchen set her sight and her hooks on New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and she quietly stole him away from actress Bridget Moynahan, who was pregnant with his child. The long-legged beauty ended up winning Brady’s heart and he made an honest woman out of her. They are currently married and have two children together.
Amina Buddafly pulled off what a lot of other side chicks couldn’t. The aspiring songstress joined the cast of “Love & Hip Hop” along with her manager Peter Gunz and his baby mama Tara Wallace. But within the first episode, it was clear that she was more than his artist. In fact, she secretly married the “Déjà Vu” rapper while he still lived with Tara, his girlfriend of 13 years. Tara ended things once and for all and Amina revealed during the reunion that she was pregnant. They welcomed a daughter earlier this year.
Sean “Diddy” Combs had a habit of ping-ponging back and forth between women but he’s always made his way back to Kim Porter. That is until Cassie came along. The Bad Boy CEO started messing around with the “Me & U” singer while his relationship with Porter was coming to a close. Though they tried to hide what was going on between them, it was one of the worst kept secrets in hip-hop. Eventually Cassie out-waited Porter and remained by Diddy’s side until he was ready to settle down and claim her in public.
Few women would trust Angelina Jolie around their husbands. Jennifer Aniston was left divorced and broken-hearted after her husband Brad Pitt starred alongside Jolie in the box office hit “Mr. and Mrs. Smith.” Pitt swore that he never slept with Jolie until after he separated from the “Friends” star but did admit that there was an emotional connection between him and Jolie from the start that he couldn’t deny.
It’s rare that a married woman would also be the woman on the side but that’s exactly what happened to Tori Spelling. She ended up sleeping with Dean McDermott the night they first met even though they were both married. McDermott’s wife Mary Jo Eustace begged the former “Beverly Hills 90210” star to leave her man alone but it was too late. Spelling ended up marrying McDermott. Four child and eight years later, the shoe is on the other foot because Spelling is now the wife who has been cheated on.
LeAnn Rimes took a page out of Tori Spelling’s book. While filming the Lifetime movie “Northern Lights,” a married Rimes started fooling around with her co-star Eddie Cibrian. He was also married. Once their affair became public, they divorced their spouses and were free and clear to wed each other. Cibrian’s ex-wife Brandi Glanville has had a tough time getting along with Rimes and has bashed her on twitter on numerous occasions.
Jesse James became enemy number one after it came to light that he was cheating on America’s sweetheart. Sandra Bullock had just won the Oscar for Best Actress in “Blindside” but instead of celebrating she was shocked to learn that James had been carrying on an 11-month affair with tattooed model Michelle “Bombshell” McGee. To her credit, the single mother of two insisted that James told her he had been separated from Bullock. Caught with his hand in the cookie jar, James apologized and pleaded for Bullock to take him back but she was done.
Perhaps there’s no side chick more famous than Monica Lewinsky. She almost single-handedly brought down President Bill Clinton’s administration when she confided in Linda Tripp about her affair with the most powerful man in the land. At first President Clinton vehemently denied having sexual relations with that woman before coming clean about their affair. After her very public dalliance with the president, Lewinsky tried to run away from the spotlight and eventually moved to London to pursue a Master’s degree in psychology but has admitted that it’s still hard for her to find a job because of her notoriety.
