There are some men who have made names for themselves in Hollywood by associating themselves with famous women. These men wouldn’t have received much – if any – attention had it not been for these ladies. While some of them might recognize this, others seem pretty convinced that they still would have been famous had they not hooked up with A-list celebs, which is quite amusing, if you ask us. They have really tried to drag out their fifteen minutes of fame and we think its time they leave the spotlight to other people who are much more deserving. Here are 9 men who are only famous because they have dated or married famous women!
9. Nick Cannon
Nick Cannon is mostly famous because of his relationship with Mariah Carey. Before he hooked up with her, he wasn’t especially well known. Since he married the pop star, however, he has received a lot more press and he has been able to make a lot more money as a result. If he hadn’t married Carey, we’re not entirely convinced that he would have been able to generate the tens of millions of dollars he has since they hooked up. Cannon’s lucky he has made as much as he has since he won’t be Mr. Mariah Carey for much longer.Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com
