17 Celebrities Who Dated Their Fans

Most of the time, the relationship between a celebrity and a fan is purely parasocial. However, sometimes, it evolves into IRL romance.

While not every relationship between a celebrity and a fan works out, not many people get to say they were once in a relationship with their celeb crush.

Here are 17 celebrities who dated one of their fans:
