Black Female Celebrities That Date White Men

A while back, we did a story on white male celebrities that enjoy courting black women. Let’s be clear, that was in no means something to make black women think we need nor have to have validation from white men, so please calm that talk all the way down dears. It was purely for light-hearted entertainment purposes. You know you were fascinated with that list, don’t lie. And because we love being in everyone’s business when it comes to their love lives, we’re back with even more entertaining evaluations of Hollywood love affairs, but this time, taking a look at our favorite black female celebrities that date, dump, marry, mess with and love them some white men. Some are swirlers you might have known about forever, others, not so much. Either way, if you’re nosey like me, you’ll enjoy being in the “know” nonetheless.

Garcelle Beauvais

While the chick we’ve always associated with “Fancy” was once married to producer Daniel Saunders, a brotha, back in the day (the two have a 20-year-old son), the relationship ended in divorce. In her second shot at love, Beauvais married Mike Nilon in 2001, an agent for the Creative Artists Agency. The couple had two beautiful sons, twins by the name of Jax and Jaid. And while all seemed like it was going smoothly, things crashed and burned between the two when Beauvais reportedly found out that Nilon had been cheating on her for five years of their nine year relationship. Safe to say–She. Set. It. Off. Girlfriend sent an e-mail to his co-workers at the Creative Artists Agency, comparing Nilon to Tiger Woods and outing his affair to all associates. Can’t say that was the most mature thing to do, but when a woman’s fed up…Anywho, she later filed for divorce, and it was finalized in April of this year.

Zoe Kravitz

Lenny and Lisa’s little one is not so little anymore if you haven’t noticed. Once a red carpet mainstay with her pops, she’s now a fashionista, perusing the streets of New York booed up. In 2008, the singer, actress and model dated actor Ben Foster, but she’s currently locking lips with Irish-German actor Michael Fassbender, her co-star from X-Men: First Class. That’s him above. Fassbender by the way, is 34, Kravitz, 22…but hey, if Lenny’s all good with their relationship, then I guess it’s whatever…

Venus Williams

As much time as folks spend following Serena and that sickening body of hers around, we rarely hear about what’s going on with Miss Venus outside of her romps with the tennis court. But little do folks know that Venus is and has been in a committed relationship with pro-golfer Hank Kuehne for years now. The two can sometimes be caught out holding hands, and Hank can often be found at Venus’ matches being a support system. Awww, how cute!

*Bonus: Little sister Serena also has done her share of dating white men too, as she was in a relationship with director Brett Ratner from ’04 to ’06.

Tamera Mowry

One half of everyone’s favorite pair of TV star twins, Tamera Mowry,  blew black folks’ mind when she married Fox News correspondent Adam Housley. And not because he is white, but rather, because he works for Fox News of all places. And you know black folks and Fox News don’t really get along all that well. But the beautiful couple, who had been dating on and off for about six years, tied the knot in May. Maybe we’ll get to learn more about their romance, as Tamera and her sister Tia are making their reality television debut with “Tia & Tamera Take 2” on the Style Network this summer. If we don’t get the 411, we can only imagine what their conversations about politics are like. Snooze…

Alfre Woodard

The mother from our beloved Crooklyn, aka, Alfre Woodard, has been married to screenwriter Roderick Spencer since ’83. The two, who are as cute as a button on red carpets, have two adopted children: a daughter named Mavis, and a son named Duncan. The children just so happened to be of mixed race. And after President Obama was elected in 2008, Spencer penned a letter called “Notes From a Dad of Children Like Barack” for The Huffington Post that professed his love for being in a mixed family and what President Obama’s achievements mean for his own children. Woodard is indeed a lucky one…


Whose that girl? Eve’s that girl! You remember Eve. She’s been ghost as of late, sporadically popping up on records spitting a few verses for Jill Scott and friend Swizz Beatz. But these days you can actually find her booed up with London-born mogul Maximillion Cooper, a race car driver and the CEO of the brand Gumball 3000, a lifestyle brand focusing on car shows and concerts. The two were all over each other during his recent car rally in Barcelona, Spain. So Eve’s found her a baller…we ‘aint mad at you girl! And the rapper/actress has made it clear in past interviews that she does date white men occasionally, and if folks don’t like that, they need to mind their business. You heard her!

Paula Patton

Of course we were going to put Paula on this list. Her relationship with smooth crooner Robin Thicke is something from the movies: high school sweethearts, one the child of a famous actor, they get booed up, get married, blow up in their careers, have a baby and continue to be madly in love after all these years. The man calls her his muse. His muse ya’ll! Black and white, it doesn’t matter. They could be black and green and still be one our favorite couples out there.

Naomi Campbell

Despite what people say about her attitude, Naomi Campbell keeps her a man that knows how to keep her very well kept (tongue twister, right?). This time around, she’s in a relationship with Russian billionaire Vladimir Doronin (also referred to as Vladislav). That’s right, bank account at the billions. Reports claim the businessman is very much into Campbell, throwing her lavish parties and canoodling with her on yachts around the world. But it’s also been claimed that Doronin is married. Yikes! We don’t really know what to believe (unless someone has some papers to show us), and it wouldn’t be the first time a female celebrity ignored a wedding band, but if Campbell’s happy then hey…we’re happy for her.

Kerry Washington

I’ve always thought Kerry Washington needs to quit playing and go ahead and date cutie Anthony Mackie, a constant co-star for her in many of her films. They just click for me. But what do I know? Instead, girlfriend is exploring the dating scene all over again with a range of characters for the first time in a long time, because just a few years ago she was engaged to be married to actor David Moscow. The two were together from ’04 to ’07. Washington says that the idea of dating used to scare her, since she’s always been in long term relationships. Her boo-ship with Moscow can attest to that. But we wonder who she’s dating now. I know who she should be dating though…

Halle Berry

Where would this list be without Halle? Granted, she’s dated many a brotha in her time, and all of those relationships have been well-documented. But it was with FINE model Gabriel Aubry that the Academy Award winning actress actually birthed a child and seemed the most content. Even if it was only for a short time. I liked the two of them together. It’s always nice when to extremely attractive people come together and make a gorgeous child. But if only the good times between them could have kept on rolling. However, Halle’s not weeping over that broken relationship anymore, nor its bitter ending. As we all know, she is now being wooed by actor Olivier Martinez. They’ve been seen happily hugged up all over film sets and what not. We at least hope this one, marriage or not, works out better than her past relationships, especially now that there’s a little girl in the picture. But we wish you the best Halle girl!
