    Caution: the side chick can become the main chick. Love & Hip Hop Atlanta was never short of the drama, and was kicked off in season one by the intense love triangle between Mimi, her boyfriend and baby daddy Stevie J., and Stevie’s prospect Joseline. Not only did Stevie and Joseline end up ultimately getting hitched, but we recently found out that during more tumultuous times, Mimi and Joseline actually had an incredibly steamy hookup. Re-watch some of the most dramatic scenes between these three from season one here.

  • 2 Amber Rose, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian

    Yeezy and Amber famously dated from 2008-2010 after he spotted her in Ludacris’ “What Them Girls Like” video. Just before she was engaged to Wiz Khalifa in 2012, Amber reportedly told Star that Kim cheated on Reggie Bush and “instigated” Kanye to cheat on Amber with her, texting him and sending him pictures. “They were both cheating,” she said, “I was like, ’Kim, just stop. Don’t be that person.'” A few years later, Amber was filing for divorce from Wiz Khalifa when Kanye, who had been married to Kim for a year, went in on her on The Breakfast Club. On the show, he claimed he had to take “30 showers” after being with Amber before he could get with Kim. Why did he go there? Still shaking our heads.

  • 3 Faith Evans, Notorious B.I.G., Lil’ Kim
    Two years into his marriage to Faith Evans and shortly after the birth of their son Christopher “C.J.” Wallace, Jr., Biggie engaged in an affair with Lil’ Kim, who he mentored prior to the release of her debut album Hard Core. A few years ago, Lil’ Kim visited Power 105’s The Breakfast Club and confirmed that when she had an abortion she was “definitely” pregnant by Biggie (while he was obviously still married to Faith Evans, before his untimely death). To this day, Faith Evans acknowledges the ongoing affair, which she says went on, without her noticing, for a year-and-a-half.

  • 4 Tara Wallace, Peter Gunz, Amina Buddafly

    This triangle is truly one for the books. In the latest season of Love & Hip Hop New York, we saw the mess from these three unravel in a way we never thought we would when Tara (Peter’s ex and baby mama) and Amina (Peter’s wife) got pregnant by Peter at the same time. Amina decided to go through with an abortion and engaged in a Twitter feud with Tara over the whole debacle. Still, Peter and Tara back their decision to have the baby.

  • 5 Blac Chyna, Tyga, Kylie Jenner

    This triangle should really be a circle because it just keeps on going and we don’t see it coming to a end anytime soon. Blac and Tyga started dating in 2011 after Chyna was in his “Rack City” video. A year later, their son King Cairo was born and the two were engaged from 2012 to 2014. There had been speculation that Tyga was seeing the Jenner’s youngest member since his split from Blac Chyna, but the two confirmed they were together once she turned 18 in August 2015. Still, they’re on-and-off and with Blac recently dating Rob Kardashian, this whole crew may never be able to quit each other.

  • 6 LeAnn Rimes,Eddie Cibrian, Brandi Glanville

    OK, this is more of a love square, but is still dramatic nonetheless. LeAnn was married to Dean Sherement for seven years when she fell in love with Eddie Cibrian in 2009, who was married to Brandi Glanville (for eight years) at the time. LeAnn and Eddie both divorced their spouses and married each other in 2011. In 2010, LeAnn opened up about the infidelity, saying: “I take responsibility for everything I’ve done. I hate that people got hurt, but I don’t regret the outcome.” The emotional struggles continue for players involved. Recently, Brandi claimed she had issues with LeAnn posting photos of her children to Instagram. Dean remarried in 2011 to Sarah Silver.

  • 7 Teairra Marí, Ray J, Princess Love

    The second season of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood served up some sabotaging realness when a heartbroken Teairra Marí manipulated Princess Love’s relationship with her ex, Ray J. It got emotional. It got physical. And now, even after claiming she would leave Ray time and time again, Princess is engaged to him.

    Once it was revealed that Joc cheated on Karlie with Khadiyah, war ensued. Although Karlie immediately cut it off, we watched Khadijah battle it out with her on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, when she and Joc eventually called it quits anyway.

  • 10 Rihanna, Chris Brown, Karrueche Tran

    Chris Brown may be the most explicit player in a love triangle, ever. The singer’s relationship with Rihanna came to a halt in 2009 after their infamous domestic dispute. He began seeing Karrueche in 2011, but was speculated to have been trying to reestablish his relationship with Rihanna a year later. The two ultimately split, when Chris said: “I love Karrueche very much but I don’t want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna.” Later that year, he admitted to loving both of them, and in this video, says: “I’m not trying to be a player… I just care too much sometimes.” He and Rihanna officially rekindled their romance in January 2013, and she claimed: “He’s not the monster everybody thinks.” They finally called it quits later that year.

  • 11 Mashonda, Swizz Beatz, Alicia Keys

    Singer Mashonda was still in the process of divorcing her husband of five years, Swizz Beatz, when he began dating Alicia Keys. She publicly reached out to Alicia over tweets she found “insensitive.” In 2010, Swizz Beatz and Alicia were engaged and expecting, the same year his divorce from Mashonda was finalized.

  • 12 Rich Dollaz, Erica Mena, Cyn Santana
    Getty
    After dating Rich and Cyn, we saw Erica start a brawl or two on Love & Hip Hop New York, when she accused Rich of wanting to sleep with Cyn once the two were working together. The dust settled and Erica took to Twitter last December to call her relationship with Cyn “classic.”

  • 13 Hilary Duff, Aaron Carter, Lindsay Lohan
    Getty
    Oh, the young love triangle. Aaron and Hilary began dating in 2001 after meeting on the set of Lizzie McGuire (lol). They dated for a year-and-a-half when Aaron “got a little bored” and moved in on Mean Girls queen Lindsay Lohan. They only dated a few months before Aaron went back to Hilary. Then, the actresses apparently tried to ruin each others movie premieres, rumors were fueled Hilary was mocked on SNL and Disney diva-esque answers were given in interviews. All over the singer of “Aaron’s Party.” Understandable, tbh.

  • 14 Denise Richards, Richie Sambora, Heather Locklear
    Getty
    Heather’s nasty split from the Bon Jovi guitarist was supposedly sparked by his overly friendly relationship with her former best friend, Denise Richards (who he began dating). The ladies verbally battled it out and rumor has it Heather parked at Denise’s house blaring “Living on a Prayer.” Richie and Denise ultimately split and for what it’s worth, Richie still thinks is ex-wife Heather is super hot.

  • 15 Erica Dixon, Lil’ Scrappy, Shay Johnson
    Getty
    On Love & Hip Hop Atlanta, we saw what happens when the corners of a triangle change, but the subject remains the same. Scrappy cheated on his baby mama Erica with his BFF-turned-lover Shay. Once Scrappy went to rehab, Shay was out of the picture (although she’d beg to differ) and kept this triangle going by seeing Bambi (even though he claims he and Erica are focused on parenting and wouldn’t get back together).

  • 16 Taylor Swift, John Mayer, Katy Perry
    Getty
    Since we’re already in the rumor mill, let’s talk about where this “bad blood” allegedly started. T. Swift was linked to fellow *emotional* singer John Mayer until they called it quits in 2010 prior to the release of her revenge song “Dear John.” Katy, who started seeing John in 2012, apparently started making jabs at Taylor, including this mysterious “Regina George” tweet, in defense of her man, who was not happy about what his ex penned about him. Obviously, none of them ended up together and this all comes from Page Six, so believe what you will.

  • 17 Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie
    Getty
    You really think we would forget these guys? The scandalous triangle that gave birth to the BRANGELINA? How could you. In case you’re a garden gnome, Brad was married to Jen for five years when he and Angelina fell for each other on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2005. They filed for divorce a month later when Brad was immediately seen vacationing with his now wife. Even though he and Angie have been hitched for over 10 years, people still can’t get over it, and recently, Jen told The Hollywood Reporter that “sometimes things [happen]” when asked about it.

  • 18 Nas, Carmen Bryan, Jay-z
    Getty
    Some love triangles are so juicy, only a book can capture the dramatic detail. Nas’ baby mama Carmen Bryan wrote the 2006 memoir It’s No Secret: From Nas to Jay-Z, from Seduction to Scandal, a Hip-hop Helen of Troy Tells All, in which she talks about being unfaithful to Nas with Jay-Z. A few years ago, a Twitter user taunted Carmen, saying Jay-Z was happily enjoying life with his wife Beyonce, when she replied: “I’ll always be the girl her husband started a war over #facts.” A fan asked if her relationship with Jay was just a “fling” and she replied: “Wars don’t start over flings. There’s no doubt that Jay Z excited the world, however I’m the girl that excited Jay Z.” If you didn’t know the source of Nas and Jay’s beef, now you might.

Pizza is bae. And yes, I still say bae.
