For some, a marriage means strict monogamy but for others, it’s more fluid. Whether it’s polyamory or just a loose interpretation of their vows, some famous couples have open relationships.
From Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich to Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, these celebrities have found creative ways to explore their options.
John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
In their world, monogamy is not for everyone. As a result, some celebrities have decided to turn traditional relationships on their heads and enter into open relationships instead.
The power couple first met in 2006 on the set of John Legend’s music video for “Stereo,” where Chrissy played his love interest. Although they acted like professional co-stars on the set, they ended up hooking up afterward, and the rest is history.
The EGOT winners welcomed their second daughter, Esti Maxine Stephens, on Jan. 13. The cookbook author and singer shared a sweet Instagram photo of their two eldest children, Luna and Miles, cradling the new baby girl.
The couple also has a 3-year-old son named Miles, and they’re incredibly happy with their little family. As more and more stars open up about their experiences with non-monogamous relationships, it’s important to remember that everyone’s situation is different.
Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich
While monogamy might be the norm in many relationships, there are people who prefer to do things a little differently. In fact, some celebrities even openly discuss their non-monogamous relationships and the benefits they receive as a result.
Demi Lovato recently opened up about her whirlwind romance with Max Ehrich in her YouTube docuseries, Dancing With The Devil. The couple first sparked romance rumors in March 2020 after they crashed one of her quarantine IG lives and later got engaged in July. However, the former couple has called it quits and now, it seems that Max is setting his sights on another star.
TMZ reports that the singer’s ex-fiance is now interested in Olivia Rodrigo. The two were spotted cozying up in Miami in November and it’s unclear whether or not they have a romantic connection, but one thing is for sure: They definitely have the same taste in music!
Bella Hadid and The Weeknd
The model and the singer have been open about their relationship on social media. They’ve also been spotted hanging out and have even leased a penthouse together!
Bella has even appeared in one of Abel’s music videos, where she plays a stripper who catches his eye. There are also shots of guns, roses, and iguanas in the video, which is super creative.
This on-again, off-again couple first dated in 2015 and were a celeb power couple until they split in November 2016. They reunited in 2018 and were seen smooching at Cannes.
It seems like these two have no plans to stop dating each other, which is pretty awesome. Who knows if they’ll ever decide to get married? We’re rooting for them!
