Serial Modelizers: The Men Who Love Models

Unfortunately, one model is calling it quits with her prince charming, but there are several model-famous guy duos still going strong. Maybe's it's simply a fad in entertainment. The men conquer their crafts and take attractive women as their trophies, perhaps? Who knows. Now, there's a bit of a discrepancy on who is a model these days. There's the video model sect and the runway clan, but either way, these men have taken a liking to the long-legged or well-endowed beauties...

John Legend
John loves the ladies but is only committed to one. Happily engaged to longtime girlfriend Chrissy Teigen, Legend has found a great catch in the Sports Illustrated lady. She's a well-recognized model and a rising swimsuit designer. Most importantly, she doesn't take herself too seriously, just check out her timeline (@chrissyteigen)!

Kanye West
Linked to Amber Rose, Chanel Iman, Angela Martini and several other pretty girls of the biz, 'Ye has been stamped a model-lover. Mr. West keeps most of his affairs on the low, but it's hard not to notice his affection. Although VS Angel Iman shot down any possibly of a romantic relationship, we still hope they become a "thing."

Ryan Leslie
Who doesn't know that Leslie loves models? Really? It's probably a known fact tucked away on his Wikipedia page. His past conquest included model Nicole Trunfio, but his recent arm candy is Sports Illustrated model Kenza Fourati. You can spot her in his recent video for 'Beautiful Lie.'



Russell Simmons
Just let it be known that this hip-hop mogul and well-respected business adores the prototypical women. Marrying supermodel Kimora Lee sort of solidified it, and even after the two split, Simmons still surrounds his dating life with glossy mag faces.
George Clooney
If Russell holds the modelizer crown in hip-hop, then ol' George holds the crown in Hollywood. The Tinseltown veteran has been seen with various models and dabbled in a few on-again, off-again relationships. However, he seems to have settled in with Stacy Keibler.
Pharrell
Little is know about the NERD frontman's dating life, but he has been linked to model Jessica White. A modelizer? Maybe not, but he does have a thing for beautiful, long-legged women. Plus, he stays around the creme de la creme of fashion, models included. That's enough to drop him on this list.

Drake
This Toronto kid has a thing for the video women and, um, strippers. No need to detail his track record, we've got it all here!

Whitney Houston's Close Friend Robyn Crawford Details Romantic Relationship In New Memoir

Whitney Houston's personal life has been explored ten times over since her untimely passing in 2012 but one of her closest friends wants to share with the world the Whitney she knew and ultimately fell in love with.

In excerpts to People Wednesday (Nov. 6), Robyn Crawford presents a strong bond between the two in her new memoir, A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston. The singer and Crawford met in their youth while working at a summer camp in East Orange, New Jersey. From there, their friendship blossomed into something more romantic. With homophobia running rampant in the 80s, Crawford says they never looked at labels but enjoyed the experiences they shared together.

“We never talked about labels, like lesbian or gay,” writes Crawford. “We just lived our lives and I hoped it could go on that way forever.”

As their journey continued, Whitney's star began to rise which put allegedly put their romance on ice. “She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore,” writes Crawford. "Because it would make our journey even more difficult. She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us....and back in the ’80s, that’s how it felt. I kept it safe. I found comfort in my silence.”

Whitney's relationship with Crawford was mentioned in the 2018 documentary Whitney. Created by the singer's estate, the film focused on the singer's legacy and didn't include first-hand accounts from Crawford. Family members were weary of their special friendship.

"I’ve never seen them do anything but I know that she was something that I didn’t want my sister to be involved with," Whitney's brother Gary stated in the documentary.

But Crawford is finally ready to tell her own story while "lifting" Houston's legacy.

“I wanted to lift her legacy, give her respect and share the story of who she was before the fame, and in that, to embrace our friendship,” she tells People. "I'd come to the point where I felt the need to stand up for our friendship. And I felt an urgency to stand up and share the woman behind the incredible talent."

A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston is expected to hit bookshelves this fall.
