7 Black Celebrities Who Were Rejected Romantically by Other Stars



R&B star Chris Brown may have caused the bad blood between pop star Rihanna and R&B dancing machine Ciara. Right before getting into a relationship with Bajan singer Rih Rih, Brown tried to dance his way into Ciara’s heart. The two are both great dancing performers, but they definitely didn’t share the same romantic feelings. In an interview from 2007 with Giant Magazine, Brown said that he had tried to start a relationship with Ciara prior to Rihanna, but she wasn’t feeling him.

According to the magazine,”Though he approached songbird Ciara before and after he shot to fame, she turned him down both times. He even confessed his feelings to Ciara’s ex, Bow Wow, with whom Brown collaborated with on “Shortie Like Mine.”’

Chris took his rejection in stride: “I don’t stunt her that much because if I know somebody’s not attracted like that, I’m not gonna push,” Brown said. “At the end of the day, you’re not blessed with everything.”



Back in 2001, rap star Nelly reportedly tried to get Beyonce to be his lady. He revealed his interest in the R&B diva on several occasions in the media. He even appeared on a TRL show during a Destiny’s Child interview to bring her chicken from Popeye’s. Beyonce had previously announced that the restaurant was her favorite place to eat. Although the two reportedly got close while touring together on the TRL tour, rapper mogul Jay Z ended up intervening and winning the Houston beauty’s heart.
