    LeAnn Rimes and backup dancer Dean Sheremet

    In 2001, LeAnn Rimes fell in love with her backup dancer Dean Sheremet, but in 2009 she announced plans to divorce him. Apparently, she was cheating on her employee-turned-husband with her costar in a TV movie, Eddie Cibrian.

    It was bad news for a while, but the dust has settled, and Rimes and Cibrian were married in spring 2011. Other famous singers who married their dance crew include Jennifer Lopez and Britney Spears, who is currently engaged to her former manager. Yep, Britney likes her staff a lot!

    Princess Victoria and trainer Daniel Westling

    The Scandinavian royals have been in the news a lot lately, mostly due to Princess Victoria of Sweden, who ended up in a precarious situation with her personal trainer. Daniel Westling was the manager of the local gym, and then one thing led to another, and he was marrying the crown princess of Sweden.

    Victoria and Daniel also welcomed a new baby princess only a few weeks ago. Congrats!

    Ethan Hawke and nanny Ryan Shawhughes

    Ethan Hawke was famously married to “Kill Bill” actress Uma Thurman for five years and they had two kids. He was linked for a while to actress Abbie Cornish, but that didn’t last very long, because in 2008 he married then-pregnant Ryan Shawhughes.

    Who is she?

    Oh, she was just the nanny to his kids with Uma. Bet you Ethan’s new wife Ryan was interviewing “mannies” over nannies too look after her own kids with Hawke.
