Even with the spotlight shining right on them, celebrities aren't immune to unsavoury relationships or saucy romance plotlines. Here are a few celebrities that have found themselves in some real world love triangles, either with or without earning themselves a huge amount of media attention throughout their relationships. This proves that celebrities have just as messy relationships as us, if not even messier ones due to the added pressure of Hollywood.
You might know that Brad Pitt has dated both Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie, but did you know that there's a bit of complication there? Brad Pitt is at the center of this triangle between the two hollywood starlets, who both married this star at different times.
Rapper Tyga was dating a stripper you might recognize, called Blac Chyna. The two have a child together, but Tyga eventually moved on to a younger woman--Kylie Jenner, and Blac Chyna started dating Kylie Jenner's brother, Rob Kardashian! Talk about complicated.
Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz aren't friends anymore, according to rumours. Why? Well the reason might be a shared love interest--Alex Rodriguez. Alex is the ex of both of these lovely ladies, and this basketball superstar has found himself in the center of a triangle.
This triangle of love involves Justin Bieber, singer, and Orlando Bloom, actor, competing for the same model, Miranda Kerr. This was all over the tabloids once upon a time, especially because of how close the timelines between these relationships are.
Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan were two child stars who went on very, very different paths. Their paths intersect however, with Aaron Carter, who they both competed for once upon a time. They both dated this lucky guy, and we can only imagine things got awkward.
When Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson starred alongside each other in the film Twilight, it was clear that sparks were flying. The two would later go on to date, crossing section with her other relationship with none other than Rupert Sanders.
Ashton Kutcher was once one of the most sought after stars in Hollywood, before he settled down with Mila Kunis. His relationships were once messy, especially when he dated Demi moore and Sara Leal with quite a bit of crossover.
This one wasn't quite as public as the others, but Angelina Jolie, Billy Bob Thornton and Laura Dern had quite a bit of a love triangle situation that turned into quite the mess, with Billy Bob Thornton pursuing both of these lovely ladies.
If Chris Brown wasn't already enough of a dirtbag, him dating both Rihanna (a woman he physically abused) and Karrueche Tran back to back should cement his dirtbag status in the mind of the public. This is one singer who got off way too easily.
Did you know that three of the biggest musicians in the modern world were involved in a love triangle. That's right John Mayer once had to juggle Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, who are two of the most wanted women in the world.
Ryan Phillippe is quite a handsome fella, and he proved it when he balanced a relationship with Reese Witherspoon and Abbie Cornish really close to each other. It makes us think there might have been some overlap, and a potential triangle.
Joe Jonas has dated both Demi Lovato and Ashley Greene, and that has spawned rumours that there was once a pretty juicy love triangle here, that involved feelings flying in every direction.Things seem to often get messy in LA relationships.
Marilyn Manson dated two far ends of the style spectrum when he went out with both Dita Von Teese and Evan Rachel Wood. This musician does everything in the extreme, so it should be no surprise that he has a few extreme relationships in his past.
Kim Kardashian is now happily married to musician Kanye West, and they have children together. But there was once a time when she was dating Kris Humphries, and it seems like Kanye West came between them. Everything worked out in the end though.
Britney Spears has a huge catalog of songs about messy relationships, so it should be no surprise that she has herself experienced a few. She once competed with Shar Jackson for the affection of Kevin Federline once upon a time.
