    The early 2000s teen drama centered around Hilary and her beau at the time, Aaron. They started dating when she turned 13, and after a two-year relationship, he suddenly started seeing Lindsay out of the blue, telling CNBC in '05, "I was dating [Hilary] for like a year and a half, and then I just got a little bored, so I went and I started getting to know Lindsay." Hils and Aaron got back together a few months later, but he cheated on her again. Hilary and Lindsay were at odds for years, fighting back and forth until 2007, when they both publicly declared a truce. The teenage love triangle was complicated, and details are still sparse, but as far as I can tell, emotions were high, and Aaron was a jerk.
