Have you always dreamed about dating a celebrity? The former flames of some big stars shared very interesting stories about what it’s really like.


What’s it like dating Tyrese? His gold-digger detector is apparently top notch. He caught a woman he was on a date with googling his net worth after she used his phone. Based on the “Ratchet all the way” Instagram message he shared with fans and followers, it’s safe to assume that he halted communication with her shortly afterward.

Amber Rose

What’s it like dating Amber Rose? Up-and-coming rapper Machine Gun Kelly said it’s harder than you’d think: “I had no idea what came with Amber’s lifestyle.” Since the rapper also isn’t a fan of being too deep in the spotlight, things between these two didn’t work out.


Dating Drake apparently involves lots of fun vacations if his former fling’s Instagram account is anything to go by.

Garcelle Beauvais

What’s it like dating if you’re Garcelle Beauvais? Tough when everyone knows about your business and past relationships. You can read about her difficulties dating as a famous single mom on her blog.

Heidi Klum

Supermodel Heidi Klum said that her very public divorce from Seal gets in the way of her dating plans:

“It’s very hard when you start seeing somebody again. It’s hard then when everyone is watching you. It’s almost like you can’t have a real proper chance in a way. And I do want to date again. I’m turning 40. I don’t even know where it’s going to go.”


What’s it like to date Lorde? Her ex, 24-year-old James Lowe, recently revealed that there were paparazzi assaults and they struggled with jealousy, which led to their eventual breakup. He shared this info on his personal blog.

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer Lopez’s former high school sweetheart David Cruz told Star that dating Lopez during her rise to the top was rough. Although they spent a lot of time together when they moved to West Hollywood, they were destined for failure. In her biography, Lopez said their career goals were to blame: “I was like a rocket. He was like a rock.”

Selena Gomez

A former flame of Selena Gomez told Star that she can be very emotional. “We went to dinner, and once we sat down, she started bawling. I didn’t know how to make her stop! Everyone was staring and pointing, but she didn’t care.”

She later told him that she was crying because the restaurant he chose reminded her of a recent ex. Could it have been Justin Bieber?

Adam Levine

Apparently itis difficult to hold this rocker’s attention. An unnamed runway model told Star that he started their first date as a gentleman. Unfortunately, things took a left turn when they went to a party in Hollywood.

“Adam was in a trance and stopped listening to me. I told him to snap out of it, but that only lasted until the next bombshell. Finally, I called a cab.”


Ashley Greene

The Twilight star said that when it comes to her dating life, celebrity status and relationships rarely mix. She told GQ, “Dating is a hard, hard thing when you have got this job. Sometimes I wish I could just go back to Florida and, like, date my hometown boyfriend.”

Robin Thicke

When April Love Geary was spotted with Robin Thicke on Instagram, the paparazzi immediately wanted to know what was up.

But when asked, “What’s it like dating a celebrity?” Geary played confused at first saying, “I don’t know, I don’t really date famous people, I guess.” Then she added, “They’re all just real people. It’s just people know the other person a little bit more than the other person. I mean, nothing crazy.”

Now that she and Thicke are out and proud, I wonder what she might have to say now.

Jack Nicholson

Jennine Gourin was 20 years old when she dated and fell in love with Jack Nicholson (even though he was 37 years her senior). And things went well — until she announced that she was pregnant with their son. Nicholson ended the relationship, but Gourin has said that she has no regrets: “He was my first love. I had the best time in my life with him.”

You’ll Probably Have To Sign A Confidentiality Agreement

And you’ll probably get cheated on. In fact, almost everything this Hollywood Matchmaker had to say about dating a famous person will make you think twice about trying to track down your celebrity crush.

Don’t Forget Scheduling Problems And Groupies

This habitual celebrity dater (who wishes to remain anonymous) said that you might fall in love with the star, but it’s a lot harder to love their work when it keeps the two of you apart.
