Not all side chicks get the short end of the stick.
From lavish vacations to expensive gifts, the other woman benefits from a life of total luxury. Even though the United States welcomes A-list actors and musicians with their bevy of beautiful women, other countries encourage cheating too, like China. Powerful men may stay with their wives, but they usually find another woman or two; they’re known as concubines.
“With the economic liberalization of China and the rise of wealthy businessmen, an ancient tradition has resurged: the concubine. Young women, often students from poorer families, seek positions as mistresses at the beck and call of wealthy men,” a documentary states. Between a $500,000 penthouse to spending money, the side chicks of China rake in the perks of a successful man.
But a man rarely leaves his wife for his mistress, unless he lives in the U.S.
Actor Brad Pitt shocked fans across continents when he and his wife of five years, Jennifer Aniston, split. After his divorce, he set his sights on actress Angelina Jolie. While their rift happened before he met the By the Sea actress, rumors quieted the truth. People instead thought that he cheated on Aniston, which she debunked herself. The couple drifted apart, like any other lovebird in Hollywood.
Usually, married celebrities split because of a third party, though. Sometimes, they either date or marry the third party, as their exes pick up the pieces of a crumbled union.
The Singer’s Side Piece?
After Chris Brown famously hit Rihanna, he set the tone for his own relationships to come.
His love life never recovered. Even when he started dating model Karrueche Tran, she received just as much hate as him. Instead of reveling in the limelight of her famous boo, online trolls talked poorly of her relationship; they even called her the side chick. The web picked up on the circulating rumors by publishing articles to reinforce the gossip. “Breezy had an affair with aspiring model while he was with Rihanna.
Then, he and Riri broke up, and he wifed up Karrueche,” an article states. Tran became upset with the many rumors, but maybe she just became upset with the truth? Either way, she and Brown broke up. He got his other side chick pregnant.
