(Newser) – Who said mixing business and pleasure is a bad idea? These nine celebrities rounded up by Radar certainly didn't think so:

  • Heidi Klum started dating her bodyguard, Martin Kristen, months after filing for divorce from Seal.
  • LeAnn Rimes met her now-ex-husband Dean Sheremet, a dancer, at rehearsals for the 2001 Academy of Country Music Awards. She ended up cheating on him after eight years of marriage, and they ultimately divorced.

  • Christina Aguilera's first love was Jorge Santos, one of her backup dancers, and they dated for two years.
  • Ethan Hawke reportedly cheated on then-wife Uma Thurman with the couple's nanny, Ryan Shawhughes, leading to their divorce. He denied it, but ended up marrying Shawhughes.
  • Britney Spears got engaged to her manager, Jason Trawick, but they ultimately broke things off.

So what. Who cares about Stars. They are just original people and not gods or idols at all. Jeez! They are not important. We are all important people.

Just off the top of my head: Robin Williams left his wife for their nanny, and Bruce Springsteen married backup singer Patty Scialfa.
