6 Pairs of Bandmates Who Did the Unthinkable and Dated the Same Girl!
All 5 Seconds of Summer fans know that while Michael Clifford and Luke Hemmings are super close now (#MUKERISE), they used to hate each other back in the day. While we’re not exactly sure why the two Australians weren’t too keen to be pals before 5SOS was even a thought, we thiiiiink it could’ve had something to do with the fact that the boys both dated the same girl. YIKES; nothing like some
friendly relationship competition to start a war.
But Muke wasn’t the first, and definitely won’t be the last pair of bandmates to romance the same woman. In fact, even some of the closest musical duos have broken the friendship (and sometimes sibling) code to date one person. Hey — as Selena Gomez would say, the heart wants what it wants.
Luke Hemmings & Michael Clifford
During one of their Twitcam chats back in 2013, Ashton Irwin asked his bandmates to clarify if they ever dated the same girl back when they were in school together. Luke confirmed the drummer's suspicions, but Michael was a bit more hesitant. "We didn't date the same person..." he said, seemingly implying that the two boys both had some sort of a thing with someone in their younger years.
