Have you ever noticed how celebrities always seem to date one another, or are at least rumoured to be connected?
In fact, there’s a term to describe this phenomenon. Urban Dictionary defines “Eskimo Brothers” as two men who’ve had relations with the same woman, but remain on good terms. Of course, there’s no reason the same concept can’t apply to women as well.
We researched the high-profile celebrities and analysed the 100 most popular figures, along with their rumoured relationships and lovers to see just how interconnected the celebrity network is.Curious to see what we found? Keep reading.
A Deeper Look Into Celebrity Eskimos
The global population of the rich and famous may seem endless, but it’s a small world after all – from actors and actresses, like Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston to singers, songwriters, and the fashion elite. If you’re interested in the rumoured and confirmed hook ups of some of the hottest stars, use our interactive guide to see which of our top 100 celebrities have been linked to behind-the-scenes extracurricular activities, and which have inadvertently become Eskimo brothers and sisters along the way.
President Donald Trump has been married three times. Rumour has it, however, that he may possibly be linked to more women than the ones he joined at the altar. In 2006, Trump was reportedly linked to adult film star Stormy Daniels. The then-future president was married to now-first lady Melania Trump, who had just given birth to their son, Barron. If true, that would make the president and Dave Navarro, guitarist from the rock band Jane’s Addiction, Eskimo brothers.
Similarly, Trump was rumouredly linked to Celebrity Apprentice star Claudia Jordan, who has also purportedly been linked to comedian Kevin Hart and rapper Sean Combs. If the rumours are true, that would link Donald Trump to Sean Combs and Kevin Hart.
What do Tom Brady, Orlando Bloom, and Ryan Reynolds all have in common? Aside from their fame and decidedly good looks, they also happen to be Eskimo brothers with award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
While Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady have been married since 2009, Bündchen was involved in a five-year relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio in 2000. After their relationship ended, DiCaprio was linked to Blake Lively in 2011 for five months before she started dating her current husband Ryan Reynolds. DiCaprio was also linked to model Miranda Kerr – who went on to marry Orlando Bloom – and actress Sienna Miller.
Pop Star Swapping
Taylor Swift has a reputation for penning her most famous ballads in the wake of often public (and sometimes messy) breakups. Fans have even gone so far as to guess which of Swift’s songs are about which beau over the course of her career. Joe Jonas made the list and is rumoured to be featured in three of her songs.
Swift and actress Gigi Hadid also happen to be good friends, and Hadid was linked to Nick Jonas in 2013. Swift may have “bad blood” with fellow songstress Demi Lovato, but they have at least one thing in common – they both dated Joe Jonas.
Characters in the Kardashian Saga
It it possible to be Eskimo sisters with your sister? In the glamourous Kardashian clan, who have a particular affinity for rappers and basketball players, it may be inevitable.
Kim and Kanye have been famously married since 2014, but before their mega-superstar engagement, Kanye was in a long-term relationship with Amber Rose. The pair may not be on the best of terms now, but they spent two years together in 2008, and the internet never forgets. The relationship definitely makes Kanye Eskimo brothers with basketball star James Harden and also potentially with musician French Montana.
As for Kim, she and sister Khloé are rumoured to have separately shared the sheets with rapper The Game. While The Game admits his relationship with Kim, he still denies ever hooking up with little sister Khloé. Like Amber Rose, Khloé has also been linked to James Harden and French Montana.
It may seem like a lifetime ago, but in 2005 – when Lindsay Lohan was 18 years old – she went on, at least, one very public date with actor Bruce Willis. Of course, at the time, Willis was just a few days away from turning 50, making him five years older than Lohan’s own father.
Like Willis and Lohan, Charlie Sheen was close to turning 50 when he was linked with 24-year-old adult film star Brett Rossi. The pair would go on to become engaged but would later call off their nuptials, with Rossi citing assault and battery among other reasons for the failed relationship.
Sean Penn also famously dated Scarlett Johansson when he was 50 and she 26, and Leonardo DiCaprio – whose dating preferences are fairly well-documented – was linked to 19-year-old model Barbara Palvin.
Who's Really Counting?
Men aren’t the only ones who’ve been known to date people younger than them – Jenny from the Block was 42 when she started dating Beau Casper Smart, a then-24-year-old dancer. They dated for over four years before calling it splits in 2016. The legendary Cher was linked to Tom Cruise when she was 39 and Cruise 23, and even Demi Moore was 41 years old when she married then-25-year-old Ashton Kutcher.
Even at the moment, Caroline Flack admitted it was strange to date then-17-year-old Harry Styles when she was 32, but to many elite celebrities, age is just a number.
A Many-Splendoured Thing
Sometimes, the juiciest Hollywood stories are the ones that get told behind the scenes, whether or not the rumours are true. Though we can’t deny or confirm these connections any more than your typical tabloid, for the Eskimo brothers and sisters who’ve shared lovers, some with more than a 30-year age gap, love is blind – even if the tabloids aren’t.
