As they say, the heart wants what the heart wants. When you lock eyes with that special someone for the first time, there is usually nothing standing in your way of being with them. Love can easily take a turn for the scandalous when the person you have your heart set on is actually with someone else at the time. That is where the term “love triangle” comes in and it can cause some vicious feuds.
While love triangles happen all the time in movies and TV, they are also common in the personal lives of celebrities. This could mean anything from stealing a fellow celeb’s spouses, dating other celebrity’s exes, or even stars sneaking around with one another while at least one of them is in a relationship or married.
We all probably have some examples in our head when we think of these types of scenarios because, let’s face it, the love lives and indiscretions of celebs are rarely kept out of the media. Hollywood has proven it is a place that’s full of love and because of all this love, heartbreak, drama, and infidelity often follow. Keep reading to take a walk down memory lane with some of the most infamous celeb love triangles.

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe were once the most talked about couples in Hollywood. Whether is was because they were too young when they first got hitched or because they couldn’t handler the pressures of marriage in the spotlight, the two split after eight years. As expected for a celebrity couple getting divorced, the rumor mill began turning that there was some infidelity behind the break up. It turned out the rumors had more than a bit of truth to back them up. News quickly broke out that Phillippe had been dating none other than his Stop-Loss co-star, Abbie Cornish. Witherspoon eventually forgave Phillippe – they now co-parent their two kids together and have a civil relationship, post-divorce.
