    The Whole World Just Found Out Kamala Harris And Montel Williams Used To Date And There Is Photographic Proof

    Just when you thought you'd seen every "celebs you never knew dated," this happens.

    It seems like every other week we post a "couples you never knew dated" list.

    There's the classic Ryan and Sandy B.

    The not-so-shocking anymore Ryan Reynolds and Alanis Morissette.

    And my personal favorite because there's just a lot to unpack there: Tom Cruise and Cher.

    But somehow, TRULY SOMEHOW, one couple slipped through the cracks.

    The two dated briefly in 2001 and attended a multiple sclerosis fundraiser together with Montel's daughter.

    Montel confirmed the relationship in 2019, with this actually very good quote:

    .@KamalaHarris and I briefly dated about 20 years ago when we were both single. So what? I have great respect for Sen. Harris. I have to wonder if the same stories about her dating history would have been written if she were a male candidate? https://t.co/UQjkP2m5jr
