3 Musician Couples Who Fell In Love While Collaborating

Is there a certain song that made you fall head-over-heels in love with the celebrity who sang it? Now, imagine if that song was actually a duet, and you were the person performing the other half of it.

It's really not surprising that some singers fall in love with their duet partners, producers, or other musicians who've helped them out in the recording studio or on stage.

Here are some celebrity couples who fell in love while making music together:

1. SIMI

For over a decade, Keys was in a low-profile romantic relationship with her long-time good friend and collaborator Kerry Brothers Jr. until 2008. Keys had met Brothers in the early 1990s at a cypher in the Downtown Village in Washington Square Park. Brothers was also her production and songwriting partner for the first four of her albums. Keys later dated hip hop artist-producer Swizz Beatz. Keys and Beatz, who have known each other since they were teenagers, announced they were engaged and expecting their first child in May 2010.

They held a Zulu ceremony to bless their unborn child in the Johannesburg suburb of Illovo, South Africa, during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. They were married on July 31, 2010, in a private ceremony near the Mediterranean Sea. The couple had their first child, a son, Egypt Daoud Dean on October 14, 2010.

In July 2015, Shelton and Lambert announced their divorce. The couple released a statement, "This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy heart that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real family, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter." Their divorce was finalized later that same day. In late 2015, it was announced that Shelton had started dating his colleague from The Voice, No Doubt vocalist Gwen Stefani.
