5 Celebs Who Dated Their Ex's Lookalikes
Um, thank u, next... doppelgänger?
We’ve all seen it happen, right?
When somebody says ‘thank u, next’ to their boo and then move on with somebody who looks alarmingly familiar. Don't get it twisted, it’s common for people to claim they’ve got a ‘type’ but some pairings can really make you do a double take and think 'oh, are they back together?' The answer is... no, she just looks like her.
Whether or not they're professional lookalikes (sometimes they are, just wait) or not, it must be weird to look at your ex's latest Insta post with their new honey and seeing a mirror image.
Or, even weirder, if you look and it looks like your sister's mirror image... Yep, it's happened.
If you've been living under a rock - it's the only way you've missed this - then you won't know that Channing Tatum has went official with his new partner. After splitting with wife Jenna Dewan earlier this year, he has started dating 'Domino' inventor and singer Jessie J and while we didn't notice at first, many people have commented that she more than resembles Jenna.
While not saying that they don't look similar, Jenna shut down all of the comparisons by responding "positive vibes all the way" on social media recently, so there's no bad blood here.
For anyone who hasn't seen Keeping Up with the Kardashians seasons 1-5 (what have you been doing?), Reggie Bush is Kim Kardashian's ex-boyfriend pre-Kanye and pre-70 day marriage who featured heavily in the show's early days. The former American football player officially split with Kim somewhere between 2009 and 2010, and in 2011 he met his now-wife, Lilit Avagyan.
The gorgeous dancer is unbelievably stunning in her own right and a look at her Instagram will show the similarities only occur with certain angles, however it cannot be denied that she looks a liiiittle bit like KKW. I mean, the photo above, for example? Mr. Bush definitely has a type. Just saying!
Another Kardashian sister but flip the script this time. Kourtney Kardashian has been accused of having a certain type of man just this year.
The reality TV legend was spotted out and about on rumoured dates - that were later brushed off as 'just friends out for coffee' dates - with Fai Abu Khadra, who was quickly dubbed Younes 2.0 by fans.
The stunning pair were seen together after Kourtney split with boyfriend Younes Bendjima in the summer, and it is absolutely fair to say that Fai and Younes share some similarities in the looks department. Nothing seems to have come from their friendship... not yet, at least.
Ah, Leo, the one and only. Leonardo DiCaprio famously dated the world's wealthiest supermodel Gisele Bündchen for five years from 2000 until 2005, and then became the most famous bachelor on Earth. It's been joked that he's always had a thing for young, slim, blonde-ish models, so perhaps it's not specific to Gisele but his current reported girlfriend Camila Morrone is striking for more reasons than one.
The beautiful model may be brunette now but her golden, tusseled hair and jaw-dropping figure remind us of another golden beauty, and more than a little bit.
Now this one is wild.
Tyga's romance with Kylie Jenner is very well documented as the pair dated for several years, reportedly starting in 2014, before they split in 2017 and she quickly moved on with Travis Scott. The rapper also moved on, though, by dating Kylie's sister Kim's lookalike. Note: she is an actual lookalike, as in she met Kim for being a Kim lookalike.
Yes, in September of 2017 it was widely reported that Tyga was dating Kamilla Osman after they were spotted dining together and everybody was extremely... confused? There's nothing wrong with it per se, although it must have been pretty weird for Kylie to see pictures of her ex driving around LA with her sister Ki- oh wait, it's not Kim, he's with. Cool.
When you remember that Rob Kardashian dated Blac Chyna, the mother of his then-future-brother-in-law's child, while Kylie and Tyga were together, it doesn't seem so strange. It's just how the Kardashians roll, baby!
