(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.
