Good Girls Who Love Bad Boys
We've all heard of this story before: The pop princess or lovable actress with a flawless image falls unexpectedly in love with the bad boy of the biz. It happens way too often to America's sweethearts, who seem to have an attraction to the guys that are no good for them.
Every girl wants her prince charming to have a bit of thug in him -- but at what expense? And who says nice guys—like Drake—should always finish last? The bad guys usually turn these Vixens into rebels (whether or not they secretly wanted to go rogue all along).
Here's a look at seven good girls who can't leave the bad boys alone. —Terry Carter Jr.
Katy Perry & Russell Brand
It was an unlikely pair from the start–a kinda sober English comedian with the candy sweet pop star. They met at the MTV Video Music Awards and married shortly after. The singer recently revealed to Vogue magazine spread how she found out that her husband was divorcing her.
"Let's just say I haven't heard from him since he texted me saying he was divorcing me December 31, 2011."
Ouch! At least Katy knows she has a thing for "tortured souls." She says "I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds."
Rihanna & Chris Brown
It ain't nobody's business but theirs...and the rest of the public. Between TMZ leaking photos from the now infamous Grammy night of 2009 to their coupled-up Instagram posts, Rihanna and Chris Brown are like ticking time bombs waiting to explode. Rihanna was seemingly the good girl from Barbados and Chris was the super clean boy next door until the accident (and Karrueche?). Both RiRi and Chris went over to the dark side from thereafter, proving that good girls shouldn't always jump fast for the bad guys.
Ciara & 50 Cent
Ciara may be with Future now, but she has a past. She famously dated 50 Cent in 2007 and the two even steamed up for a sexy hot video where she caressed all over his chiseled body. The southern girl had fallen under the New York native tough guy charm but the relationship didn't last long after 50 began courting comedian/ late night host Chelsea Handler.

Sandra Bullock & Jesse James
Take one look at Sandra and Jesse and you'll notice the opposite attraction. Sandra is recognized as the beloved funny woman in our favorite blockbuster movies and her now ex husband is... a tatted up motorcyclist. Sandra's fairytale wedding ended in 2010 when news broke of Jesse's numerous women affairs (with women who fit more of his lifestyle).

Jennifer Aniston & Brad Pitt
Poor Jen. The world watched as she was publicly humiliated by her bad-boy hubby Brad Pitt, when he found love with Angelina Jolie on the set of their movie. The Friends actress was left to pick up the pieces of her life while the media documented her every attempt to move on. In 2011, Aniston found love with actor Justin Theroux. So far, he seems like a good guy.
We're talking Jennifer before she was J. Lo and Puffy before he was Diddy. Back in the 90's when gun violence was at a high, Lopez found herself literally dating a Bad Boy. But once Jennifer got in the middle of a nightclub shooting, she knew she had to leave. Fortunately both these musicians have matured from the situation and move on to, um, younger mates.
Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown
Whitney was arguably the best female vocalists of all time, and at the height of her career, she seemed to have it all. When the singer revealed her relationship with notorious bad boy of R&B Bobby Brown, fans around the world immediately knew this was not a match made in heaven. Between the drug abuse and the constant fights, eventually their relationship fizzled and their divorce was finalized at the time of her untimely death.
