Most men are too prideful to live in a famous boo’s shadow unlike the unknowns-turned-celebrity beaus on this list. Some more established before the fame than others, it’s always entertaining to watch high-profile relationships between A-List women + Z-List men unfold. Here are eleven irrelevant, widely-unknown or Z-List men who came-up after smashing famous women. Take a look.
Jay Electronica The incredibly-talented yet tragically-lazy rapper was homeless for years before knocking up Erykah Badu then moving on to British Heiress Kate Rothschild (worth over $300 million) who recently was cleared to marry him. He won.
Stedman Graham Oprah’s boo thang of 27-years is paid to exist when she needs him to. Greatest life ever.
T.I. Before Clifford Harris was T.I.—Kang of the South, he was a struggling Rap nobody put on by his wife Tiny at the height of Xscape’s success.
David Otunga He'll probably always be known as "Jennifer Hudson's fiance" or "Punk from I Love New York 2." Life's not fair.
Kevin Federline The “You Got Served” extra-turned-famous freeloader knocked up Britney Spears TWICE and blew her money on value combos, Gummi bears and snack cakes. Ultimate come-up.
Jermaine Dupri The gnome-sized mogul rose to global stardom after somehow bagging legendary whispersetto Queen Janet Jackson who enhanced his already solid brand.
Kris Humphries No one knew who the Lurch-faced Brooklyn Nets forward was before Kimmy K. shamelessly used him to prove that her box wasn’t completely-worthless. Now he’s famous and somewhat viable.
Antwaun Cook The former T-Mobile sales associate is famous for knocking up pre-literate Fantasia and using her while married. No dirtbag greater.
Seal Everyone’s favorite raisin-faced crooner has three kids by Heidi Klum. In most minds, he won the game of life.
