Hate em or love em, but side chicks are alive and real!
Unfortunately for some couples, if a girlfriend isn’t satisfying her spouse to their standards, best believe that there is a noble side chick who will!
Now before you start going off, consider this fact… not all relationships are meant to last. And it’s possible that you can meet your potential soulmate while dating someone else. Just because the timing isn’t completely perfect, doesn’t mean you should avoid missing your chance at real love.
The side chick title has been given to some of our favorite leading ladies in Hollywood. There are many successful women in show business whose patience moved them from the side chick to the main chick in no time.
So let’s highlight a few celebs who went from side chick to the main chick, for the women out there who are secretly crushing on a cuffed up honey. If these ladies were able to get their man, maybe you will too!
Grammy-Award winning singer/songwriter Alicia Keys is a prominent woman in Hollywood who went from side chick to the main chick with her current husband, Swizz Beatz. For those who can remember, Swizz was still married to his ex-wife, Mashonda, when he began dating Alicia around 2007. According to Vibe, back in 2009, Mashonda penned an open letter to Alicia, calling her out for “hiding this affair and acting like it [doesn’t] exist,” among many other things. The two mothers of Swizz’s children have since reconciled, with Alicia even making a song called “Blended Family” in 2016 that featured Mashonda in the music video. They have even been seen taking family vacations together.
The love story behind Brangelina is probably one of the biggest Hollywood scandals to date. Many can remember the great deal of controversy that surrounded the marriage of actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The two met while on the set of their 2005 movie, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” and ended up falling in love. The only issue was that Brad was, at the time, married to “Friends” actress, Jennifer Aniston. Brad ended up leaving Aniston for Jolie and stayed married to her for well over 10 years, up until their divorce last year. It’s said that Aniston said Brad got hit with “karma” following Jolie’s file for divorce from the award-winning actor.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are Hollywood royalty in the realm of celebrity couples. Red carpets anticipate their arrival, and people all across the world are in love with the results from their many business ventures in music, fashion, and beauty. However, many are still unaware of the rocky history Kim and Kanye had before they began officially dating in 2009. Kanye’s ex-girlfriend prior to Kim was the model, Amber Rose, who has openly admitted to knowing that Kanye was cheating on her with Kim during their two-year relationship. In addition to Kim having been Kanye’s side chick before becoming his wife, Kanye was also Kim’s side piece, as both Reggie Bush and Kris Humphries have admitted to knowing of Kim cheating during their relationship with Mr. Life of Pablo himself. Guess these two were always made for each other, no matter who they were dating.
Singer/fashion guru, Gwen Stefani, was known as Mrs. Rossdale for years up until her divorce from rocker, Gavin Rossdale, in 2015. But Gwen didn’t take too long to get back on the dating scene following her divorce from Gavin; she shortly began dating her fellow co-host on The Voice, country singer Blake Shelton. But it’s Blake’s quick transition from his ex-wife Miranda Lambert to Gwen that had many suspecting that Blake might have already been dating Gwen while still married to Miranda. According to People, both Blake and Gwen say their romance began while they were both going through their divorces, but the coincidences are still a juicy topic of discussion in Hollywood.
Fashion/beauty maven Kylie Jenner is one of the most talked about celebrities on the scene. Growing up under the shadow of big sisters Kim, Kourtney, Khloe Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner, Kylie worked hard to make a name for herself. One of the biggest controversies that have surrounded the young starlet was her 3-year relationship with rapper, Tyga, which began when she was just 17 and he was 25 years old. Even more controversial is the fact that Tyga had just ended his engagement with model, Blac Chyna, right before he began publicly dating the much younger Kylie Jenner. Though they have never admitted it, many believe that Tyga was already dating Kylie before he ended his relationship with Blac Chyna. This, in turn, caused a longtime feud between Chyna and Kylie that resulted in Chyna dating Kylie’s older brother, Rob Kardashian, and giving birth to Kylie’s niece, Dream Kardashian. Wonder how their next Thanksgiving Dinner convo will go!
