Hollywood can be a small place, when it comes to dating.

From 90’s actors to pop singers and Disney darlings, it seems like everyone has dated everyone’s ex’s in Tinsletown.

Alleged affairs, cheating scandals and bitter break up songs – these are the most scandalous celebrity love triangles.

The Weeknd, Bella Hadid and Selena Gomez

Shortly after paparazzi photos emerged last week of Selena Gomez kissing Bella Hadid’s ex boyfriend The Weeknd, Bella unfollowed Selena on instagram and claimed that Selena had betrayed her by dating her ex. Sources then claimed that Selena doesn’t feel bad about the hookup, because she’s “barely friends” with Bella, only acquaintances.

Dennis Quaid, Meg Ryan and Russell Crowe

After nine years of marriage, Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid announced their divorce after Meg allegedly had an affair with Russell Crowe on the set of Proof of Life. Years later Meg claimed that the split wasn’t all her fault and that Dennis had also been unfaithful during their marriage.

Billy Bob Thorton, Angelia Jolie and Laura Dern

Billy Bob Thornton married Angelina Jolie while his then live-in girlfriend, Laura Dern, was out of town.

“I left our home to go and make a movie, and while I was away my boyfriend got married, and I never heard from him again,” Laura later revealed.

Hilary Duff, Aaron Carter and Lindsay Lohan

Aaron and Hilary dated on and off between 2001 and 2003, when they were barely teenagers.

They were involved in a tumultuous romance, with Aaron also dating Lindsay Lohan at the same time. This led to a reported feud between the two actresses. In 2003, the young couple broke up for good over rumours that Aaron cheated on the Lizzie McGuire star.

Ryan Phillippe, Reese Witherspoon and Abbie Cornish

Ryan Phillippe allegedly had an affair with his Stop Loss co-star Abbie Cornish while he was still married to Reese Witherspoon.

Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

The most famous love triangle of all time, Jennifer Aniston’s then-husband Brad Pitt denied having an affair with his ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’ co-star Angelina Jolie while he was still married to the former ‘Friends’ star. Brad went on to adopt Angelina’s children less than a year after separating from Jen, and would go on to father three biological children with the actress. Brad and Angelina were together for 10 years and married for two, before splitting last year.

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Rupert Sanders

In 2012 pictures leaked showing Kristen Stewart cheating on co-star and long-time boyfriend Robert Pattinson with married director Rupert Sanders.

John Mayer, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry

Though John Mayer and Taylor Swift only dated briefly years ago, the relationship made enough of an impression on Taylor Swift that she wrote a song about him called “Dear John”. When Taylors long-time enemy Katy Perry began dating him, rumors claimed that Taylor’s revenge track ‘Bad Blood’ was written about Katy.

Chris Brown, Karrueche Tran and Rihanna

Despite Chris Brown’s violent past, model Karrueche Tran has had an on-and-off relationship with the rapper, who allegedly cheated on her with his ex Rihanna. Karrueche finally ended things with Chris after discovering he had fathered a daughter with another woman while they were together. Later, she also claimed she saw him fraternizing with Rihanna at an NBA game on Christmas Day after he’d left her home alone.

Kate Hudson, Alex Rodriguez and Cameron Diaz.

After splitting with girlfriend Kate Hudson in 2009, former baseball player Alex Rodriguez was spotted hooking up with Cameron Diaz only a couple of days later. Many have speculated that Cameron hooked up with Alex for revenge, because Kate hooked up with Justin Timberlake back in January 2007 – just two days after the couple of four years split.

Taylor Swift, Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid

Taylor dated Joe Jonas nearly a decade ago, and claimed the former boy band member dumped her in a 27-second phone call. Years later, Taylor went on to give her best friend Gigi Hadid her blessing to date her ex.

Nick allegedly dated Miley first for a year in 2006, ending in a breakup that resulted in both Nick and Miley writing revenge songs about each other. From 2008-2010 Nick reportedly dated both girls on-and-off. In 2016 Selena finally addressed the rumours in an intervie: “We never feuded. We both liked the same guy when we were 16. It was just a Hilary Duff–Lindsay Lohan thing: “Oh, my God, we like the same boy!” We are now completely settled in our own lives.”
