Some hookups in the celebrity world surprised us, but here are some unexpected black celebrity hookups that threw us from our chairs. No one knows if black celebrities use sites for celebrity hookups, but in these cases, we’re sure they didn’t. That doesn’t mean they wouldn’t match and find each other there.

Has Anything Changed Since These 4 Hookups Happened?

In the past, celebrities never had to use online dating. But things changed, so today we have some exclusive platforms where famous people meet each other. That might sound strange, but being famous doesn’t make everything perfect. Even celebs sometimes struggle to meet suitable partners. But since the 4 hookups we’ll mention below happened, many singles started looking for quick dates online. Those black people who seek quick results join the site for local black hookups and use the matchmaking game to find the best matches. We don’t know if any of the 8 names we’ll mention uses online dating, but we know one thing for sure. Each of the couples spent (at least) a night together. Let’s take a closer look at the most shocking black celebrity hookups.

Toni Braxton and Birdman

The public audience dropped their jaws when rumors started that R&B singer Toni Braxton and rapper mogul Brian Birdman Williams were a thing. They became official in 2016, but the word is that they had a fling years earlier. The thing that caused some head-scratching was that they’re completely opposite. Toni is a sweetheart and kind person, but Birdman doesn’t have that kind of reputation, not even close. 

They teamed up for Birdman’s song Baby you can do it in 2002, and Birdman admits falling in love with Toni then. She was married, and her divorce was finalized in 2013, meaning he patiently waited for her for 11 years. It seems this couple lives out of rumors because there is one more: people are whispering that they tied the knot in 2018. She was seen wearing an engagement ring, but allegedly she lost it. No one is sure if they were married or broken up, not even Toni’s family. They describe their relationship as a complete mystery.

Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri

Janet Jackson was married three times, but she refers to Jermaine Dupri as the greatest love of her life. Both of her ex-husbands were musicians, so it’s a surprise that she dated another one.

They started exchanging messages through a mutual friend, but in 2000 decided to communicate directly. In 2002 they started dating, and it was obvious that they were head over heels for each other. Both had only the nicest and most loving words for each other, so it was a surprise when they broke up in 2009. Why? Jermaine Dupri was cheating on Janet, whom he described as the sexiest woman in the world. No wonder – she’s 56 years old, and it doesn’t show at all. She believes she can thank that to her healthy and various eating habits.

Seal and Tyra Banks

Tyra is now in the middle of a long-term relationship with a famous businessman. But she dated numerous men before settling with him. Most of them were celebrities, and those relationships stayed in our minds (like Tiger Woods or Will Smith), but people forgot that she dated Seal. This relationship falls under the radar because it lasted only 9 months, and it was before Seal’s marriage to Heidi Klum. We all know how famous Seal and Heidi’s marriage was, so no wonder all his previous relationships didn’t grab much attention. Luckily, you have us to remind you that the relationship between Tyra and Seal happened.

50 Cent and Vivica Fox

The famous rapper and hot actress dated in 2003 and didn’t last long, but they made many headlines. In 2003 50 Cent made his affection public when he thanked Vivica Fox for wearing that dress tonight at the 2003 BET Awards. His team reached out to hers, and they connected over the phone. They appeared together later in the same year at the 2003 MTV VMAs, and people were losing it. All that public attention and paparazzi hunting them down made the couple break up before its time. Vivica says that 50 was the love of her life and that he’ll always have a special place in her heart. She was hurt when she learned through a friend that he said they’d broken up on a radio station. She claims they never had a face-to-face breakup. They were bitter but reconciled in 2017. 50 Cent agrees with Vivica and feels they could’ve lasted much longer if they weren’t public that early in the relationship.

These were the most unexpected black celebrity hookups, which are still hard to believe. But romance hits in most unexpected ways. So, who knows; more of these await.
