In the past, we’ve talked about how you should proceed in terms of dating if you’re in the process of divorcing someone. Some of you say “you’re married until you’re divorced” and others say, “What are you going to do? Sit around and just wait on paperwork?” Well no matter what you think, these celebs didn’t wait for the ink on their papers to dry. No, these folks hit the ground running…unsigned divorce papers be damned!
MaryJ. Blige & Kendu Isaacs
These two met through Queen Latifah and although they’d gone out on a few dates, Kendu was still married to his then wife who is also the mother of two of his children. Mary was claiming him as her husband (you know, that “name it and claim it” business) and at the same time struggling with the idea of dating a married man. But, ol’ pretty eyes got a divorce and he’s been married to Mary for eight years.
Jennifer Lopez & Marc Anthony
You know, I’m using this relationship as an example when actually I think all of their relationships can be used as examples. J. Lo had broken up with whomever she’d been dating at the time (it can sometimes be too hard to keep track) and Marc’s marriage to Dayanara Torres was already “on the outs” when the two of them started stepping out together in 2004. He married Jenny a year and a half later and he hadn’t been divorced a full week from Dayanara. Seven years later and where are they ? Separated. Yeah…well…
Leann Rhimes and Eddie Cibrian
*throws something* THIS couple still gets my celebrity nerves all riled up. Leann was married for seven years to a dancer named Dean before they announced in 2009 that they were divorcing. Well, it all came out pretty quickly that she’d started having an affair with her movie co-star Eddie Cibrian who was also married at the time. He left his wife and filed for divorce just one month prior to Leann announcing her plans to divorce. Did you get all that messiness? Up until a few months ago, this was still playing out very ugly with Leann defending her decisions to the media and her fans. Anyway, Leann and Eddie are married now. Whatever.
