Here are a few of stars we would likely never know if it weren’t for the A-listers they dated. Before dating a celebrity these were just ordinary people, but the spotlight they stepped into has allowed them to kick off careers of their own.
Amber Rose has dated a few celebrities now, but her two-year relationship with Kanye West is what put her on the map. She snatched paparazzi’s attention with her platinum buzz cut and curvaceous figure back in 2008, but it’s Amber’s outspoken feminism that’s kept her name the media. With nearly 14 million followers combined on Instagram and Twitter, one can’t deny Amber’s fame.
Karrueche was a young aspiring model before dating Chris Brown. When the blogs caught wind of them dating, her life changed over night. Their relationship ended when it came to light that Brown had a daughter by another woman while they were dating. Everyone knows with celebrity drama comes cameras and headlines. Fortunately, Karrueche was able to maintain a positive brand despite all the drama. She is rumored to be one of the new judges on the new revamped season of America’s Next Top Model.
Tyga was the first celeb to put Blac Chyna on. After getting engaged and having a baby together, the two decided to end their relationship. But they didn’t really “go their separate ways” seeing as they’re both currently dating a Kardashian. This twisted up love story has kept Blac’s name in the media, providing her a vast platform from which she’s launched her own cosmetic line and lash bar.
It’s crazy to think that today you might be an ordinary girl reading the blogs, tonight you could meet your celebrity crush, and tomorrow morning people could be reading about you!
