Has anyone dated someone who later became famous?

Did you feel like a loser after finding out? Were you the one who broke it off in the first place? Who was the famous person? I actually dated a now famous person. I think this makes me special.....like B'eer. ;)

    Yes, I briefly dated Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong. I heard he wrote What A Wonderful World after our breakup.

    Also, I was Jesse's Girl...written by Rick something or other.

    I dated a major league baseball player before he was popular. He was just a guy in the bullpen a closing pitcher. Then like 4 years later he became the starter for his team and won the Cy Young award and all that. I dont talk to him anymore, but dating a guy in the sports field is hard as it is. It wasnt a hard breakup and it was sort of mutual. I dont have any hard feeling nor do I feel like a loser.

    Now you have my curiosity piqued. Who was said famous person?

    Ok, well back to the question at hand. No I didn't date anyone who became famous later on, but I had a friend who did. I went to high school with a guy who went on to join O-Town, Dan Miller (for those who remember it was the original MTV Making of the Band band founded by Lou Perlman the guy who created Backstreet Boys and N'SYNC). Yeah I know, ya'll are still scratching your heads, saying "who?!" Its ok, I don't blame you.

    No, BUT

    an old friend of mine used to date Rodney Bingenheimer, who became close friend to all persons musical & some persons celebrital.

    We have the same hometown: Mountain View, CA.

    In the early days, when he still lived there in his family home, visiting singers would autograph his bedroom wall.

    Um, at the SF Airport I walked passed Mory Amsterdam (Dick Van Dyke Show), also the guy who played Professor Potter on the old black & white Superman tv show. Ahem, few years ago...

    I dated a guy named Jim, who about 2 years after we broke up was in New York and became a fighter. The way I hear it, he made it good. He got married and had twins.

    I am happy for him.

    I never dated him, but I was asked out by one of the winners of Last Comic Standing. I turned him down, but should have given it a shot. I had just gotten out of a marriage, though. I watch him on TV and see him on concert whenever I get a chance.

    I wish I was with one of the Jonas Brothers:D

    Randomness, haha but my friend dated Mitchell Musso for 1 week. They kept it in the down low. I was with her when he gave her and Me ONLY free tickets to the Hannah Montana set to watch them shoot. It was AMAZING. Then he asked her on a date and he said I was pretty [ but as a friend ].


    Who are you dating?

    • Definitely agree. He had so much machismo back then. Maybe to cover up the gay thing.

    No, but way back when I had a major crush on Rich Gedman and we used to flirt.

    A friend of mine dated Carmine (from Laverne & Shirley) after his career died. A woman I worked with went out with Richard Gere before he was anybody.

    All of these examples wayyyy reveal my age. Please pass me my geritol.
