Kendall Jenner, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez …: Discover our selection of stars who have not hesitated to go out with the ex of their best friend.
“We do not touch a friend’s ex!”, A saying that we can hear regularly nowadays. But it seems that in Hollywood, this rule does not apply for everyone. The world of pop culture is so small that everyone knows each other. And inevitably, many celebrities end up dating the same people.. Sometimes, therefore, it happens that the best friends share an ex or even two. Today we present to you our selection of celebrities who went out with their friends’ exes. Did their friendships survive these stories? We will find out.

Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas dated in 2018. A short relationship of 4 months which, it seems, did not end very well since Joe would have left the singer by phone. Taylor, one of those stars who tackled their ex in song, even released two tracks about the relationship., Last kiss and Better Than Revenge. Things seemed icy between the two artists for years. And when Joe started dating Gigi Hadid, a very close friend of the singer, one would have thought that the matter would have gotten worse. On the contrary, the relationship in the trio seems to have improved. Taylor even went on a double date with the model and the singer.
Kylie Jenner & Gigi Hadid / Cody Simpson

You probably don’t remember it but before Tyga or Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner dated Cody Simpson! The young couple dated briefly in 2011 before going their separate ways. A few years later, the Australian singer started a relationship with Gigi Hadid (again her!) They dated intermittently, chaining the periods of breakup and reconciliation for two years before finally breaking up in 2015. Even though Gigi is closer to Kendall, Kylie’s big sister, sharing an ex doesn’t seem to have hampered the model’s friendship with the two Jenners.
Bella Hadid & Selena Gomez / The Weeknd

No more talking about Gigi Hadid, let’s move on to her sister. Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez were very good friends but today they are not as close as they used to be. A friendship marred by the love triangle they both formed with The Weeknd. It all started in 2015 when Bella got into a relationship with the singer. Their relationship lasts 18 months and ends in mutual respect between the two parties. Only a few months later, The Weeknd begins dating Selena Gomez. They see each other for a few months before going their separate ways. The Canadian singer ends up returning with the model in 2018, to separate again in 2019. The relationship of the two young women did not come out unscathed!

Emma Roberts and Dianna Agron are great friends whether it’s in the limelight or in the city. We have often seen them together over the years at Coachella for example or on the red carpet of course. They also share an ex. Emma started dating actor Alex Pettyfer when they met on the set of their movie Wild child in 2008. Things got so serious that Alex even got Emma’s name tattooed on his finger. Unfortunately, their relationship did not last. The actor then began a relationship with the star of Glee on the set of their film I Am Number Four in 2011. The girls didn’t let this boy get between them though. Indeed, Emma and Dianna are still friends today.
Taylor Swift & Kendall Jenner / Harry Styles

For some reason unknown to us, Taylor Swift and Kendall jenner both kept their relationship with Harry Styles a secret (unlike any other living human being). But at melty, it did not escape us. Taylor and Harry were first seen together in December 2012 and although they only dated for a few months, their romance inspired half of Taylor’s 1989 album. Much like Taylor, Kendall only dated Harry briefly after their first affair in November 2013. We don’t know much about their short-lived relationship, but they were a great couple.
Nina Dobrev & Nikki Reed / Ian Somerhalder

One thing is clear, Ian Somerhalder has a thing for vampires. The two stars of The Vampire Diaries first dated in 2009. The duo dated for four years before going their separate ways in 2013 devastating fans of their couple in series. However, they remained good friends and their on-screen chemistry was not affected. The actor then began dating the star of Twilight, Nikki Reed, who happened to be Nina’s friend. Having to work with your ex is embarrassing enough, but having to play the girlfriend in love with your ex when he has just married her friend is quite another thing. So no one blamed Nina when she announced she was leaving RST a little after. Despite everything, we do not detect any animosity in the trio. Nina has also been pictured with Ian and Nikki since leaving the show.
Tom Cruise & Jamie Foxx / Katie Holmes

Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx have been friends since their movie, Collateral, in 2004. The latter even offered his support to Tom when his relationship with Katie Holmes ended in 2012. But, to our surprise, a few months after the divorce of the two actors, we learn that Jamie is finally in a relationship with Katie. The couple were very careful and tried to show themselves as little as possible in broad daylight. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to escape the paparazzi, and photos of the new couple have finally been exposed to the world. A relationship that certainly did not have to please the ex of the actress who had asked during the divorce that Katie does not appear publicly with another man during the 5 years which followed.
Miley Cyrus & Selena Gomez / Nick Jonas

Miley Cyrus (who also dated Cody Simpson) and Selena Gomez have known each other since the days of Disney. Both stars of their respective series on Disney Channel, the two young women quickly became friends. However, their relationship seems to have seen its ups and downs. The tension started to build when they dated the same man, Nick Jonas. Miley and Nick dated in 2007 and after their split, the singer dated Selena for a few months. The two friends fell out but reconnected after years.

The two best friends of Friends have a strong and fusional relationship as much on screen as in the city. Still very close today, Jennifer and Courteney have an ex in common. They both went out with the singer of Counting crows, Adam Duritz. Rachel’s interpreter dated him briefly in 1995, and then Courtney did so two years later. Of course, this is not the kind of story that will break the foundations of a friendship as solid as that which binds the actors of the sitcom queen of the 90s. Moreover, we are still waiting to find them in the movie. episode that will bring them together almost 20 years after the end of the series. Here are the 3 things that we absolutely want to see in the special episode of Friends.

Already present both, twice, in our top, we had to end with the ex shared by Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift: Taylor Lautner. The actor of Twilight and Selena met while they were both making movies in Vancouver in 2009 and were a bit homesick. Later that year, Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift met on the set of Valentine’s Day. On screen they played a high school couple totally obsessed with each other and in everyday life it was pretty much the same. They only dated a few months in 2009 before their relationship ended. The friendship between Selena and Taylor is still strong.
