Am I crazy, or are open relationships a thing now? Judging by Hollywood, I’d say yes. Here are some celebrities in open relationships.
T-Pain went on the record to confirm that he and his wife don’t have an open relationship. They just “sleep with other girls together.” Sounds open to me.
ROBIN THICKE AND PAULA PATTON
Robin Thicke didn’t openly cop to having an open marriage on the Howard Stern show. But when Howard asked, he said, “Out of respect for her, we just won’t answer that one.” I’m just going to draw my own conclusions from there.
Jada says that she and Will don’t have an “open relationship”, they have a “grown relationship” which means they’re each allowed to stray, but only if the both of them give the OK.
LEBRON AND SAVANNAH JAMES
I’m starting to get a feeling that Savannah is part of a one-sided open relationship. When LeBron was at the White House getting a Presidential honor for winning the 2013 NBA championship, NBA Associate Producer Stacey Klein saw him asking for a girl’s phone number and put him on blast on Instagram. Do you think she’s making it up, or is this the bold move of a man who steps out on the regular?
Open relationships aren’t just for entertainers. French President Francois Hollande is uncomfortably open about having a girlfriend and a mistress. In the picture above are him meeting with Ms. Trierweiler (mistress), with Segolene Royal (wife), left, and Julie Gayet (girlfriend), right in 2011.
The funny lady told Barbara Walters that he and her husband Sidney Hicks have an open relationship. But from the way she worded it, it sounds like he’s the only one who participates.
When Wendy tried to shade Porsha for stretching her budget on an 8,000 square foot house, Porsha clapped back and suggested that Wendy’s husband strays on the regular while she stays meekly by his side.
BRAD PITT AND ANGELINA JOLIE
Just because you’re open to being open doesn’t mean you have to be. Angelina went on the record to say:
“I doubt that fidelity is absolutely essential for a relationship. Neither Brad nor I have ever claimed that living together means to be chained together. We make sure that we never restrict each other.”
But as far as I know, those two have been too busy raising kids to act on it.
GABRIELLE UNION AND DWAYNE WADE
Gabrielle says Dwayne is monogamous, but he ended his relationship with his wife under suspicious circumstances and got another woman pregnant while these two were “on a break.” That’s enough coincidences to make me say “hmm.”
CHRIS BROWN AND KARREUCHE TRAN
There was so much back and forth between the Chris/Karreuche/Rihanna love triangle that it’s hard to keep the facts straight. But rumor has it that Karreuche let Chris stray in hopes of making him stay.
I’m not totally sold on open relationships, but Hugh Hefner is 86 and it’s starting to look like sharing and open relationships may be the secret to living forever.
