You might think that celebrities only date other celebrities, and you’d be right for the most part, but there are some rare and special occasions where celebrities fall in love with regular people. Stars such as Conan O’Brien, who saw his wife in the audience of his show, or Steve Harvey, who publicly said he would marry one of the guests at his stand-up comedy show after seeing her, prove how unexpected love can be.
Bright Side would like to show you 10 such cases you might not know about, proving that love is the same for everyone.
1. Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley
Elvis first met Priscilla at a party in 1959 while he was serving in the US military, and they eventually got married in 1967. Priscilla was a fan of his music and loved “Blue Suede Shoes,” but she claimed that she wasn’t a crazed fanatic like other fans. They spent around 6 years together before getting a divorce, but their relationship ended with the 2 being on good terms.
2. Steve and Marjorie Harvey
Steve Harvey first met his wife, Marjorie, at a comedy club in Memphis. According to her, she was late for the show, so when she walked in and went to find her seat, Steve stopped the show and stared at her. She had thought that he was being quiet because he was about to joke around with her and make it a part of the show since that’s what some comedians do with fans, but Harvey just said, “Oh, I’m sorry, I don’t know who that is, but I’m going to marry her!”
