The private lives of Hollywood stars are often just as dramatic as the stories they tell on the silver screen. There is nothing that the gossip mags love more than a juicy celebrity love triangle. We have rounded up the good, the bad and the ugly, so stay tuned.
1. Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie
The most famous of all celebrity love triangles is that between Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie. Now married Brad and Ange famously met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith, when Brad was still with then wife and Friends star Jennifer Aniston. Cheating rumours on set and the eventual public separation of Brad and Jen, America’s “golden couple”, lead to a frenzy in the press that continued for years. Were you team Jen or team Angelina?

2. John Maye, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry
The battle to win John Mayer’s heart was fought by rival singers Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, and is rumoured to be the root of their mutual dislike for one another. Katy publicly dated the famous womaniser for months, and their on-again-off-again relationship left us in a spin. Mayer and Swift reportedly dated for a period within this time and it did not end well. Taylor Swift released the song ‘Dear John’ soon after, and reportedly fought with Perry over back up dancers during her tour that following year.

3. Justin Bieber, Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom
At the peak of his bad-boy phase, Justin Bieber was even accused of breaking up a marriage when he reportedly hooked up with Miranda Kerr, wife of Orlando Bloom. These rumours were seemingly proved true when the singer was videoed in a violent altercation with Bloom at a party in St. Tropez. Both Bloom and Bieber posted retaliatory tweets on social media after the event, and the couple publicly confirmed their separation soon after.

4. Chris Brown, Karreuche Tran and Rihanna
Why does anyone still like Chris Brown? It appeared that not even a court order could stop the on-again-off-again relationship between Rihanna and hip-hop singer Chris Brown. After their infamous final break up, Chris Brown partnered up with model Karreuche Tran, and Rihanna was less than impressed. The two women clashed famously on Twitter a number of times, and Rihanna eventually reclaimed her dumped beau a few months later.

5. Ed Sheeran, Ellie Gouldin and Niall Horan
Ed Sheeran may have won the hearts of women everywhere but apparently Ellie Goulding wasn’t a fan. The pair reportedly dated whilst Ed was on tour with his chart topping first album, only to have the affair end in tears when Ellie hooked up with mutual friend Niall Horan from boy band One Direction. The rumoured affair was hinted at by Ed Sheeran in his cutting song ‘Don’t’ which he released the following year.
